I remember when I first decided to apply for Project Money. I really didn’t think that I would get picked but I was still looking for some financial coaching, so I said why not, it’s a win-win. When I got picked, I was so excited, but was aware that it would be a lot of work on my part.

The ego of spending
Venus
Around the holidays (Christmas mostly) I notice how money comes in forms of our own ego. When I refer to ego, I’m talking about an expanded version of ourselves.

They operate from a bigger version of who they currently are, therefore that become that. In that form, an ego help us create a better reality which is great.

Smart goals equal financial health
Venus
As a health coach/personal trainer, when I meet new clients or even current clients we are always figuring out what is the right goal. First, we talk about SMART goals, (specific, measurable, achievable, results, and time). Most people say I want to have more energy and feel better in my body.
