Think quick! Name the favorite element of your job. Don’t think about it - just respond. What’s the first thing that comes to your mind? What makes you grateful that you get do the work you do?
Sometimes we all need a reminder. We can all get burned out and overwhelmed. Especially when you run your own business. I know I feel a bit burned out from time to time. Sometimes I have an off day - or a challenging week!
AND I have many, MANY reasons I’m grateful to do the work I do.
One thing I’m grateful for is getting to have conversations with friends on important topics - like investing and money mindset. And a bonus for you: sometimes these conversations get recorded as Podcast episodes! 😀
Today, I’d like to share with you two recent podcast conversations I’ve had. I hope you’ll find them energizing, inspiring and informative.
Demystifying Investing | Therapy for Your Money
The world of investing is intimidating and confusing for most of us. And it is important! I believe that deploying a sensible investing strategy is an essential element of a plan for financial health and wholeness.
And unfortunately, there are a lot of loud and distracting voices out there that offer really questionable advice. On a very regular basis, I see news articles and shouty social media posts suggesting actions which are ill-informed and highly inappropriate for most investors.
Julie Herres & I discuss how to make investing less overwhelming - and share a handful of simple - yet highly effective - investing strategies. If you’re interested in investing, but feeling a bit stuck or overwhelmed, this is the conversation for you.
Don't Make these Money Mistakes! | The Practice of Therapy
We all make mistakes. Especially when we’re dealing with complex areas of life that are somewhat unfamiliar to us. And money is decidedly one of those areas!
I like to reframe mistakes as opportunities for learning and growth. (I know, that’s a bit cliched - but it’s true!) Instead of shaming or judging ourselves for “mistakes,” I suggest you take a curious stance to see what you can learn: about yourself, about your money and about different options available to you.
Gordon Brewer and I had a fascinating conversation on his podcast about how to approach the many financial responsibilities you have as a therapist in private practice. We talk about money dates, being curious, learning about your money mindset and the ever-important reminder that everything in life (including money) is about PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION.
That's a Wrap 🎬
That's it for this today's post. I know we covered a lot and yet it is but one small part of navigating the entirety of your financial life.
If this all feels a bit much, give me a shout. I work one-on-one with therapists from all over the country helping them address issues just like the ones we talked about today! Learn the different ways you might work with me on my services page.
