I believe it’s important we own our ‘money stories’ as it’s really the key to transforming our lives. So, let me tell you my own tale.
I was raised by a single mum, and throughout my childhood, I experienced much financial stress. This impacted my beliefs around money and my self-worth.
I internalised this shame and worked hard to keep myself as safe and FINANCIALLY comfortable as possible.
My downfall was overspending. Even when I’d been working in financial advice for 15 years, I had money issues. (Yes, I see the irony!) I was never truly engaged with my finances. Despite all the things I did right, when money came in, I spent it.
It wasn't until I uncovered the reasons why I couldn't save money, that I could make the necessary changes to my money patterns.
Knowing where these patterns came from in my childhood- changed everything for me.
