The Wild Money™ Process

3d-Wild-Money-Book-Cover-Stack-AWARD-458x600At the center of my approach is an innovative process beginning with discovery.  Using my Wild Money™ book and journal you will explore your relationship with money while addressing traditional personal finance activities through a lens of creativity and curiosity.

By using visual language and journaling exercises you are able to bypass that detrimental inner critic and work through emotional issues affecting your relationship with money.

The principles of financial wisdom are consistent no matter where you are in your journey.

Receive Money with grace. Spend with intention. Nurture your nest egg. Grow your gold. Protect what matters. Give with guts.

Exploring these mandates through my innovative Wild Money™ process will serve you no matter your bank balance.

The key is to identity what matters, plan for what might get in the way, and take small steps in the right direction often.  This way you are actively moving towards your dreams while living well in the process.

A Creative Journey to Financial Wisdom


Get Started

Approach this journey with curiosity rather than judgment. As if looking at a map to chart a course. Not good or bad, simply where you begin. Answer the questions on the self-assessment as honestly as you can with a simple yes or no. If the answer is not a strong yes, then count it as no.

Receive Money with Grace


Money doesn’t cause things to happen; it simply reflects you.

The emotions you have around the money you receive get reflected in the way yo treat it: Receive with angst and the money will feel like a sticky web of complexity; receive it with grace, and money will be the blessing that enables you to share your gifts with the world.


Spend with Intention

spending-icon-150pxEach of us has a financial forest. Trees take time to grow. Finances take time to recover. Spending with intention means the forest, that being your financial resources can continually support you.

Intentional spending requires energy, attention, and curiosity. Wild Money™ is not about fulfilling impulsive needs and stripping your future of resources, instead it invites you to nourish your inner wild places.


Nurture Your Nest Egg


Nurturing your nest egg is about learning (or relearning) how to be as loving and protective of your money as a mother goose is with her egg.

It’s about building your nest—creating the right environment for tending your money—so it has the strongest likelihood of growing and reaching its potential.


Grow Your Gold


It’s safe to say we’ve all made investment mistakes and later made decisions based on those experiences. It’s important to look at the baggage you carry about investing so that instead of acting like it doesn’t exist, you can say, out loud “I’ve made a few mistakes and I want to understand how to not make them again.”

These experiences, whether yours or your loved ones, have informed and shaped you. Now is your chance to move forward, to learn new skills and concepts, and to step into your own financial wisdom.

We were not born knowing how to handle money. It’s learned, and it starts with knowing yourself.


Protect Your Wild Places

Protecting-iconPart of developing a solid relationship with money is being able and willing to stand your ground and protect what means most to you. It’s an act of love to handle the precious details of your life.

To be savvy in the wild, you need to know how and when to take calculated risks, when to take cover and ride out the storm, when to jump in the river, and when to take the long, arduous path around the rapids.


Give with Guts


Giving with guts requires you to honor your values and your wallet; it begs authenticity while also being responsible to yourself. Giving is the web that connects us.

Generosity is a natural state; it’s wild and in tune with rhythms and cycles. But not all giving comes from generosity. Some comes from guilt, or obligation, or need, or anger. Sometimes it requires stepping back and asking hard questions.

Wise givers have the ability to look at these issues and engage heart and mind in the process.


Take Your Wild with You

There are days we bounce back to old habits, losing sight of the deeper call within us, and days when new growth and strength are clearly evident.

The goal is freedom: freedom to feel spacious and calm about money; freedom from financial ruin, debt, stress, and anxiety; and freedom to create and live as you dream.
