What People are Saying

The Money Wellness podcast helped me to understand how I view money and what it represents for me. It also helped me to connect my upbringing to my money habits. A lightbulb went off. No turning back!
Listener, Sylvia
This podcast made me realize that I have more control over my financial circumstances that I led myself to believe. Reflecting on the influences and values that impact my relationship with money allowed me to be proactive with setting financial goals. Once I took this approach, I began to feel hope instead of worry.
Listener, Kimberley
What an EXCEPTIONAL podcast. It's full of digestible, easy to apply tips and techniques given within less than a 15 minute timeframe. Highly recommended.
