The majority of my career coaching / career counseling clients come to me to talk about their careers. Hey, it’s where we spend the majority of our day, so it’s worth taking the time to make it fabulous. Whether you want to get better at your existing job, transfer to a new job, or create your own business, I can help you figure out where you want to go and get you there.
A key part of that conversation is the money talk, which I typically have ASAP. Clients will tell me how they want to make “X” (they literally say “X”), and I ask them to give me a number. Sometimes its 120K, sometimes it’s 800K. Everyone has their X. Some clients don’t know their X, so we figure it out together.
So if you work with me, we’ll talk about money, for sure. Usually in our first session. But too many times, my clients aren’t ready for the money talk. Money makes them nervous and anxious. Women, especially, haven’t been raised talking about money and are often uncomfortable with the topic.
Enter Farnoosh Torabi, best-selling author, television personality, award winning personal finance expert, and creator and host of So Money. As well as my good friend and media partner-in-crime.
She invited me to be a guest on the So Money podcast this week, and I’m thrilled to share it with you. During the show, I reveal:
- How I lost $1 million dollars (true story) and what I gained from that
- What the coaching A-ha moment feels like, and why it’s so powerful
- Splurges that are worth it
- The importance of staying debt free
So please, have a listen. Her podcast is informative and fun, and warning: addictive! It’s an honor to talk money in the company of Farnoosh’s other guests, including Seth Godin, Robert Kiyosaki, Jean Chatzky, Margaret Cho, James Altucher and hundreds more.
Enjoy! I look forward to hearing what you think.
