My story is that I have been exactly where you are.
I hit rock bottom with my money in 2017. I almost lost everything.
I had been addictively overspending my money my whole life but when I got sober from alcohol I starting using spending as a coping mechanism for filling the void. Trying to change my feelings of unhappiness with that dopamine hit of buying something that I thought was going to make my life so much happier.
It never made me happier.
It dug me in an incredibly deep hole of shame, embarrassment and self sabotaging.
Starting money coaching was the first step that I took. After uncovering all the patterns and behaviours and understanding my addiction to spending I knew that I needed to make this my work to share with the world.
I am making my mess my message.
It has been a hard process of working my Financial Sobriety but it has been so rewarding.
I can proudly say that last year my husband and I paid off the last of our credit card debt! There was A LOT of it.
I have been working as a money coach for 5 years now and I am so excited that this year I launched Financial Sobriety School.
This course, Thriving, is the essential group course of Financial Sobriety School and I am incredibly proud of it.
You belong here. I see you. I am you. Come join me and start THRIVING.
