How to handle files & finances in an empowering way with Maggie Graham

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.
