Are you willing to do what it takes for the life that you want?

Hello Reader,

When I decided to make more money so I could have the freedom to live the lifestyle of my dreams, I realized I wasn't willing to do what it took to have this.


  • Facing up to my current financial situation
  • Being honest about my part in contributing to this
  • Learning how to improve my current financial situation
  • Opening my mind to consider other perspectives about money
  • And the clincher...allowing myself to believe, even just a tiny bit, that I had what it took to make the money I want

I wanted to get rich quickly and easily. Money had always come easily to me when I was growing up. But as an adult, my financial situation was dramatically different. You may have heard my story about getting into massive debt, losing my job, and having no income while having a family to support.

I was arrogant too. Sometimes our accomplishments in school and at work make it even harder for us to accept we suck at mastering our money. I mean, how hard can it be to understand that 1 + 1 = 2?

What I didn't know was that money isn't just 1 + 1 = 2.

Often, it can't even be boiled down into a simple equation.

Money is loaded with our stories, past events, beliefs, drama, fears, uncertainties, and insecurities.

It wasn't until I understood my relationship with money and the beliefs and stories driving my actions around money that I could take concrete actions to change that relationship and improve my financial situation.

If you want to learn how to master your money, your first step is to master your relationship with money.

If this is something you want to learn about yourself, then come to my workshop, 'Financial Confidence for Women' happening this Thursday, 4 April, at 8 PM GMT+8.


See you soon.

Hello Reader, Do you know what a dream career means to you? making the money you need for the lifestyle you want? doing work that matters and uses your talents and strengths? giving you the time you need to pick your kids up from school every day? If you want to design a dream career, you have to know what matters to you, so you know when a career supports what matters to you or takes it away from you. Most people won't give this much thought. The default is to pick the job that pays you the...

Hello Reader, Ever feel confused like you don't know what to do next in your career? Should you stay in your job or leave? Should you ask for a pay increase or keep quiet? Should you challenge your boss about that performance review or suck it up? Wouldn't it be nice to talk to someone you can trust, who has the experience and expertise to guide you through these decisions and what to do next? That's what working with a career coach (like me!) can help you with. But if you're not ready to...

'I think I want to drop out.' My son says to me. He's just started a coding assignment in the military. Out of the 7 selected for this unit, he's the only one without any coding experience. 'I'm slowing everyone down. They're all ahead in the assignments.' When things get hard, it's natural to feel like giving up. So I asked him, 'Is this something you want to learn and do?' 'Yes.' he said. So I said, 'Then you'll have to be prepared it will be hard in the beginning because you're trying to...
