Joetta's Money Story
My own story with money is one that began with much hardship — my hero’s journey with money took me through a painful bankruptcy at age 32, despite the fact I was a successful corporate accountant in the world. I experienced serious doubt in my own self worth, because there was no clear understanding of why I faced these financial challenges. I struggled with a lot of shame, guilt, confusion and isolation. I didn't trust there was anyone I could speak to about what I was going through, for fear of being judged. I felt I had to uphold a certain image in the world that I had it all together.
There were many trials and tribulations on my personal money path to financial transformation. I was challenged with compulsive overspending, getting into significant amounts of debt, no savings, resistance to looking at the money, and confusion about budgeting. I had no shortage of desire, but it was misguided. Spending consumed me. I was trying to fill a void that lived inside of me that no amount of spending could fill. This was my money shadow rearing its head, trying to get my attention. Facing my money shadow was a humbling, yet liberating process!
I had to start from scratch and pick up the pieces of what felt like failure at the time in order to fully commit myself to overcoming these challenges—and find the keys of conscious personal finance. Gratefully, I've had amazing mentors who have helped me face my money demons, make radical improvements and find new ways to do money! I continues to get reflection and support so I can continue to upLevel my own relationship with money.
The lessons I've learned along the way are countless. What are some of these lessons?
The subconscious mind has a tremendous impact on the relationship with money and if things aren't working with money this is the first place to look.
Working with the dark side of money can be an exciting adventure, with the right perspective. It is like finding a treasure chest that has been hidden in plain sight.
There is a need to come to terms with the desperation to fill a void that can't be filled by spending money or even making money.
Each hero must face their own fears and avoidance of responsibility, so they can regain their integrity with money and create a life of abundance.
Having a budget will never resolve financial woes on its own, it is the underlying consciousness with money that has the power to change everything.
These lessons led me to create a unique version of financial coaching. Bringing the practical tools and techniques together with the magic of financial transformation. Countless clients have benefited from everything I've learned along the way.
