I am very excited to share with you this conversation I had earlier this week with the inspiring
Maggie Graham from Career Design and Coaching.
From the minute I read Maggie’s comment on my blog “How I will get you to do stuff” I knew I wanted to interview her. In her comment she said:
I am actually doing well with my financial organization. I think it’s because of the “story” element that you reference. I wanted to feel different about my money and I wanted to create a new story for myself about my capability and skill around money.
I thought right away: how inspiring !
So if you ever
- felt overwhelmed by paperwork and finances
- had any shame or guilt around paperwork and money
- wanted to know what weight loss has to do with finances
take the time (35 minutes) and listen to – I mean really dive into – this deep and profound conversation that Maggie and I had around paperwork & money. As Maggie says: It is really rewarding to dig into it, because once you make changes in your behavior, it will show up in all the rest of your life.
