In this week’s episode Bari and I cover so many rich topics including:

  • How and why Bari transitioned from working in the mental health field to working as a bookkeeper and eventually became a successful entrepreneur weaving the two worlds of therapy and finance.
  • The type of money culture Bari was raised in and how that shaped both her personhood and her life’s work.
  • The intersection of money and power and how to become more conscious around both.
  • How Bari’s work and business models have evolved over the years and why a long life requires creative adaptation in the money realm.
  • Why transitions such as marriage, graduations, childbirth, health crises, death & peri-menopause require us to tune in and listen to what is required both financially and across the whole spectrum of our lives.
  • The non-linear equation of: money, time, energy, family, health & giving and how to sort through your personal transitions and values as they relate to money.
  • How to tap in to intuition as a tool for figuring out tough money riddles.
  • How Bari is integrating social justice work into her personal life as well as her Art of Money program as a white and Jewish woman.
  • Why it is essential to incorporate our individuality into our money routines/practices.

And so much more!

This conversation is a beautiful integration of Bari’s personal stories–one woman’s journey of doing her inner work, trusting herself and evolving with life’s many twists and turns– as well as her powerful wisdom and professional expertise on the subject of women and money.

I know you’re going to LOVE it!
