It's Never about the Money...even when it is
How To Untangle Your Emotions From Your Money
I want women to understand that their financial difficulties are not really about dollars and cents. Instead, they spring from deeper, older problems that today are in conflict with their current behaviors. This conflict is the substance of IT’S NEVER ABOUT THE MONEY…EVEN WHEN IT IS. My book was inspired by my own journey and my research and conversations with women through my coaching program, The Financial Whisperer.

How you move through the world and how you feel should be consistent. When they aren’t, you make poor financial choices and you rationalize negative behaviors. Despite countless books, coaching programs and support groups seeking to help women manage their money, none provides long-term solutions because they do not uncover the real issues. My hope is that my book will help many women finally get to the root of their financial issues.

About Me

Author Portrait
I began this journey as Vice President of National Sales of a company owned by a woman and staffed by women and an entire client base of females. It was in this environment that I began to understand the unique intricacies of how women communicate, grow, and interact with each other. It was truly an eye-opening experience for me.

Unresolved financial conflicts between the owner and the management team frustrated me, and I left for a more sane, predictable environment, unsure what that would be, but I was open to anything that made sense.

I became a mortgage broker - a position in which the relationship with clients is rooted in trust. As I learned the business, I was amazed at the ways in which so many women had mismanaged their finances. The trusting relationships I developed with these women also afforded me much deeper insight into the intimate details of their lives, and I learned that many of them were coming out of abusive relationships. They were burdened with house payments they couldn’t afford, and had children to feed, but were not receiving financial support from their estranged husbands. The stories and the struggles of my clients inspired me to develop the concept for a business,
Home Loans For Women. The company strived to help those women keep their homes and repair their finances, and 5% of the net profit went to support organizations that helped victims of domestic abuse.

These experiences, combined with several years of prior business experience, armed me with the knowledge, skills and passion to create THE FINANCIAL WHISPERER, a concept that seeks to separate women’s emotions from their finances.
