Mastering Your Money Mindset

Learn how to build a better relationship with money, including how to address and overcome past negative experiences.

So many people have limiting beliefs about money, without even knowing it!

We think things like:

I’m just not good with money.

Why bother? It’s not like I’m capable of change.

I’ve made so many financial mistakes, I’ll probably be broke forever.

No wonder I’m bad with money—just look at my parents.

I just want this guilt and shame about money to go away.

If you find yourself caught in those negative thought cycles, this module is for you.

We’ll start with a discussion of your past, taking the time to discover how your upbringing, society, religion, and popular culture have influenced your views on money.

Then, we’ll identify the aspects of your money story that aren’t serving you, and actively work to replace them using Brooke Castillo’s amazing CTFAR thought model.

Finally, we’ll get you connected to your Why, brainstorming all the positive impacts that will come from this mental work, which will keep you motivated to make good financial decisions long after the course is over.

No matter where you're at with your current money mindset, we give you the tools and resources you need to get right with your past and embrace your most abundant future!

This course is divided into three sections, containing 9 videos, as well as a 25+ page workbook containing templates, video notes, and exercises, and other bonuses.

Together, we’ll cover the following topics:

1. How your money story influences your views on money.

2. How to replace your negative money mindsets with more positive and productive ones.

3. How you can use your Why to maintain motivation for your financial goals
