How to set boundaries
For many of us, talking about money and finances ranks pretty high on the difficult conversations list. Financial confidence is usually not something we’re born with, it’s acquired. Fortunately, people like Sarah Becker of Becker Talks Money exist to demystify finances and – dare I say it – make talking money FUN. Listen in for Sarah’s first steps to financial freedom, how to get comfy talking dollars and cents and more!
About Sarah Becker
After ten years as a wedding photographer, real estate investor, and small business owner, she kept hearing the same story from my biz besties over and over again. While outwardly successful in their businesses, they were utterly failing in their financial goals (if they even had financial goals). Sound familiar?
She started asking every businesswoman she knew about their money. Sarah learned that less than 2% of the creative entrepreneurs in her network were happy with the state of their finances. That’s when she started her career as a financial educator. She believes that money doesn’t have to be scary, that curiosity is more important than correctness, and that everyone can become an expert of their own money. Yes, financial freedom IS possible.
When not crunching numbers, you can find her renovating a river cabin with her partner Barry, taking her dachshund Gus for a long morning walk (with a London fog latte), and planning to have Asian food for dinner tonight (again).
In my conversation with Sarah, she shares…
