Today we are wrapping up the entire month’s theme on women and money–and this is one you will not want to miss!
Jacquette M. Timmons is my guest in this conversation and her vivacity, expertise and down-to-earth wisdom had me laughing, learning and in deep appreciation of the human side of money and all that it entails.
In this week’s episode Jacquette and I cover:
- Some inspiring highlights from Jacquette’s early life including how she met her mentor, how she got introduced to Wall Street and the fascinating twists and turns her career in financial services has taken.
- Why some people successfully build wealth, while others do not, and how we can start to shift our behaviors if we’re not getting the results that we want.
- The concept of financial blindspots, how to identify them and how to overcome them once we recognize there is an issue.
- The difference between the economy and the stock market and why it is essential that we understand the role and context of both.
- Jacquette’s meta reflections on where we’re at in the economy in 2021 and what we need to be looking out for as women.
- Why we don’t manage money, but instead manage choices and how to get more empowered, confident and savvy with managing our choices.
And so much more!
Jacquette has such an approachable, thoughtful and lighthearted approach to money that resonated deeply for me and once again inspired me to think differently and take new actions in my money life, so I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed having the conversation!
Jacquette M. Timmons focuses on the human side of money. She works as a financial behaviorist and is committed to getting you to see that you don’t manage money – you manage your choices around money.
In addition to being an author (“Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate”) and frequent blogger, Jacquette is also the creator of The Comfort Circle™ – a dinner series, where she hosts discussions about money, business and life over food and wine – and “Pricing Made Human™.” Whether PMH is presented as a masterclass, 1-day small group retreat, mastermind or VIP Day, it is designed to help entrepreneurs and small business owners tackle the question, “What should I charge for this?,” from all sides: the financial, the emotional, the personal, so they can price more confidently, strategically, and in such a way that propels their business and life forward. She is also the host of the podcast, “More Than Money.”
When she’s not providing behavioral-based financial coaching, she’s traveling the country for speaking engagements on behalf of Fortune 100 companies, AM Law 200 firms, nationally known non-profits and conferences (large & boutique) to talk about the intersection of emotions and money. Her work has been featured on Minnesota Public Radio, SiriusXM, “Good Morning America,” Oprah.com, CNN, HLN, FOX, Black Enterprise, NPR, Reuters.com, and the Wall Street Journal.
Jacquette holds an MBA in finance from Fordham University’s Graduate School of Business and an undergrad in marketing from the Fashion Institute of Technology. A combination she credits, in part, for being able to blend her analytical mind and creative spirit in service to helping her clients shift how they look at money; how they perceive its role in their life; and how they give it direction. She lives in Brooklyn, NY and can be seen running in Prospect Park most days of the week.
