It’s NEVER Too Late To Become Financially Literate
Show Notes

“Having all this money made me fearful of losing it.”

—Julie Greenham

Business and mindfulness coach Julie Greenham made a name for herself as an advocate for introverted entrepreneurs.

But even as she empowered her clients to be comfortably visible, book their ideal clients, and make more money, the successful host of the Quiet Powerhouse Podcast struggled with the knowledge that she wasn’t quite sure how to manage her own finances.

After separating from her husband, she stepped onto the road to financial literacy — and hasn’t looked back!

Many, many of my clients have shared Julie’s experience. Very few of us grow up being taught how to save, invest, and budget. And that should never be a point of shame!

The truth is that anyone can learn how to take control of their finances and manage their money. 

The hardest part is taking that first step!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • Why knowing your own values is so important when it comes to spending, investing, and saving 
  • How Julie learned how to understand her finances and take control of her money after her divorce — and why she feels more empowered than ever
  • The role that emotion plays in how we feel about money — and how Julie dealt with the issues she had with pricing offers and receiving money

Julie Greenham is a leading advocate for introverted entrepreneurs, host of the Quiet Powerhouse Podcast, and founder of the Mindful Entrepreneur Membership. She helps entrepreneurs grow their business in a way that respects and prioritizes their gifted, introverted nature.
