My husband hates snowboarding, as much as I hate not shopping. You probably know how much I love to shop, so he must really hate it! I thought it would be fun to take a lesson together when my family went to Vermont one year. He started the day with a ton of doubt in his mind. He didn’t believe he could do it, and his actions proved him correct. When all the little snowboarders and skiers were passing him on the slopes, he started to doubt himself even more. And when I say little, I mean 4 and 5 year olds! I started skiing when I was 3, so I’m not nervous or overwhelmed at the top of the mountain. When you do something consistently for over 25 years, it becomes second nature. Your beliefs and behaviors are aligned with each other. So instead of avoiding the slopes like Eric does now, I embrace them, let them challenge me, and finish with a beer in celebration. Trust me, I still have my fair share of falls.
Though I’m pretty sure I will never get Eric back on the slopes, He will at least come along on the journey to Vermont with my family. We went to Stratton to celebrate my parent’s 35 wedding anniversary the other weekend. Happy Anniversary mom and dad! They went skiing on their honeymoon, so all they wanted was for all of us to be together on a mountain somewhere. While Eric stayed mostly inside nursing a beer or five, my family charged the slopes!
Maybe you are like Eric with some financial or money related issue in your life. You are terrified of it, too overwhelmed to look at it, or just want it to go away. If you are like this, don’t worry, you are NOT alone. We all have something we like to avoid like the plague, like stepping on the scale after all the holidays. We don’t want to do it, we wait until the last possible moment, but when we finally do, it isn’t so bad. So to get you to take action and address your money issue or fear, here is my step by step guide to get over your fears!
Below is a brief description of the program and if you would like more information on it, please click here:
Chief Financial Officer of your life is a hefty title to promote yourself to. There isn't a doubt in my mind that you can do it, and succeed in doing it. All you need is the right program with the proper tools, support, and guidance to get you there and to stay there.
Become the CFO of Your Life is a six month community program to shape the new chapter in your life to be what you deserve. My vision for what I believe will be a breakthrough program is to bring women together to create a bond for their next adventure in life. It is geared towards women who are going through a major life transition such as divorce, losing a spouse, or starting a career or a new career. By having a community, it breeds beliefs and confidence in each other and within yourself. Balancing life, family, and a major life transition, can be overwhelming and daunting at times. We need to carve out time to bring the focus back on ourselves because if we aren’t managing, our family isn’t either.
The program is built on 4 Pillars: Confidence, Comfort, Control, and Clarity. Confidence to take action today with empowerment from knowledge on money and investing. Comfort from having a community of support and guidance to keep you moving in the right direction with your life. Control over your life and your choices, so you aren't making one bad financial decision after another. And finally, clarity of what you really want for the next stage of your life.
All it takes is a decision to start living your self-worth and level up your life. Let’s take action together, and create a new life worth living for you and your family. There are more choices, opportunities, and ways to live out there for you. Don’t you deserve to find them? Click below to set up a call to see if the program can transform your life.
