We spend a great deal of time and energy to earn money. Have we developed an effective strategy for what we do with it? This talk outlines the 3 steps every household should be taking when it comes to their finances to reach goals and find financial security.
In life, we need to prioritize. Our money is no exception. When it comes to managing our money, a pandemic has helped to highlight what is most important, solutions that work (for both the ups and downs) and the ideals that simply don't serve us. What action can we take today, knowing what we know now?
Financial closets - we all have one and the nature of the contents are largely the same. However, they do come in different shapes and sizes and need to be routinely cleaned out and assessed for proper fit to be of the most value. Let's take a look at what is in our personal 'financial closet' and determine if these things should, in fact, be there or if we might just have to go shopping.
"Vanessa has been a delight to work with in planning and organizing the session she did for our supporters recently. She exudes care and interest in assisting women and couples in improving their financial affairs. Vanessa has a holistic approach to finance and with her personal and professional background lives and breathes her values of guide, give and grow. She encourages everyone to increase their financial power and control to live the life they want to live."

"Vanessa explains finances in an easy-to-understand manner and provides takeaways that are easy to incorporate into your daily financial management. Vanessa was incredible to work with and worked diligently to curate a presentation for our membership of young professionals. I would highly recommend Vanessa."
"Vanessa presented on money management as part of our Elevate Your Life Zoom series. Our goal was to have Vanessa share financial best practices for young women starting in the full-time workforce or who were dealing with significant income reduction due to Covid-19. We gave Vanessa an overview of what we wanted to be covered and she had several suggestions to fill in the gaps and ensure a meaningful presentation with lots of strategic takeaways. Vanessa is great to work with, very professional, completely relatable and a real advocate for women. We will definitely be doing more work with her!"
