That is from one of my VIP clients prior to starting her coaching.

Women and creatives are rarely trained to be powerful with money, yet we desire and are expected to earn a good living doing what we are passionate about.

There is a big disconnect.

As creative women, it seems integrating our love of design, planning, creativity and artistry with making a six-figure to multiple six-figure income is not so much in our favor due to the influence of how we were raised and what society falsely dictates with behaviors, habits, and mindset around money.

What’s up with that?

I aspire for you to have a blessed, thriving, abundant relationship with money so you are rewarded well for your purpose and expertise. No more just enough syndrome, caving into discount requests or survival mode.

Here is what I hear from my highly talented creatives, wedding and event professional clients just days before they begin their coaching program:

“I was never really taught the value of money. It’s just that you needed it to survive and live paycheck to paycheck. I had no idea how to save.”–Wedding Planner

“I want to better understand where I am with my work/business and getting to the next level. I want to think outside of the box and become a leader in the industry. I make ok money, but know I should be making a lot more, to not just pay the bills, but to pay me a salary I’m worth.”- Master Wedding Planner

“I’m someone who is “good with money” in the sense that I don’t live beyond my means, I don’t spend a lot, and I can easily save money. I’m also quite frugal. On the other hand, I have a scarcity relationship with money. I’m always worried there’s not enough and that I could be saving more. I worry about having enough money in retirement.”- Corporate and Wedding Event Planner

“I have done actions relating to money and I think I am good with keeping it and spending it. I recognize money is a form of energy and is therefore under the laws of energy. But I still have some doubt or worry about placing a value on what I offer and demanding it.” –Wedding Make-up Artist

“Honestly, I didn’t really value money. I had no relationship with it. I just saw it for what it was “paper” and an exchange for goods and services. I was not confident in my money conversations when it came to charging my clients. Money felt like a taboo thing you didn’t talk about. I did not track my money nor know my numbers. I would just receive it, have it in one account and spent accordingly” – Master DJ/MC

“Before Marla’s program, I was afraid of many things having to do with money and my worth from looking at my bank account to raising my fees. Her money speedometer tool was so helpful with my money relationship and goals personally and for business!”- Wedding & Branding Photographer

To get a feel for what wealth consciousness is and how vital having a healthy one is to your sales conversion and revenues, I have a free webinar on-demand from my recent LIVE training, “Raising Your Wealth Consciousness for Higher Sales Conversion.”

After you opt-in, you will immediately receive the video to watch and learn.

Furthermore, if you are the type who wants to know what’s next after the webinar, I created a customized 6-week group LIVE Zoom virtual training beginning in January to address this very condition of not being as empowered as you can with money and what are the solutions to transforming this.

We will transform your current (old) money beliefs, habits and behaviors as I compassionately explore with you and your group members how to release and then transform. We create a new normal that is healthy, productive, confident and empowering.

The details of the 6-week program are here.

To take this to a higher level, today’s parenting responsibility requires the juggling of so many moving pieces while raising a healthy, well-adjusted, happy child.

I remember the joy and gratitude woven with fear, overwhelm, and uncertainty while choosing to raise my son, Taylor, as a single parent after divorce when he turned six years old in 1997.

I used a ton of faith, love, defined boundaries, inspiration, discipline, and an intention of success and unlimited possibility; no matter what. He was such a joy to parent as a child – but as fun as he was as a child; he was equally a challenge in his teens due to his high achieving personality!

Today he is 27 years old, extremely self-sufficient and successful in his Real Estate Investing and Development career out in that wildly uncertain but dynamic world.

I’m darn proud of being his Mom and all the rich life experiences (the good and the not so good) I went through to develop him into a well-adjusted, intelligent, and hard-working young man.

When I took the leap of faith to learn from my mentors ten years ago how to transform my money relationship and build a new money legacy for my son, I wish I had known this knowledge and option when I raised him.

However, I have plenty to be grateful for knowing what I know now and how I have majorly shifted in my maturity and relationship with money; a relationship that used to be bathed in fear, shame, guilt, worry, and lack for over 20 years.

I can proudly say I am now modeling a healthy behavior with money for my son.

Think for a moment what money behaviors have you been modeling for your family and others?

Their money legacy begins with you.

Let’s build a NEW healthy money legacy for you, your business and your family that you can be proud of. A healthy money relationship goes beyond your own needs. It’s for future generations and your legacy.
