At one point in our lives we may have gone through financial problems, but did you know this can be avoided?
Today, I have Vanessa Bowen on the show, a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and Master Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner (NLP) and the Founder of Mint Worthy, a personal finance coaching platform that helps women shift their relationship with money and take control of their finances.
In this episode, Vanessa shares with us how her own personal financial journey taught her how to manage her finances and how it inspired her to help other women who went through the same struggles as her.
I want people to realize that you can learn how to manage your money, it's possible to change your financial life, you just have to learn to live in your power. - Vanessa
