You + Me + Money Matters
My comfort level with money became apparent right after university, because I didn't have a trust fund and I needed to make a livable salary right out of the gate.
The only place that paid writers well enough to cover rent was Institutional Investor, a magazine that also published high-end financial newsletters. Despite the fact I'd just graduated from ART SCHOOL they hired me to launch the Real Estate Finance and Investment newsletter where I wrote and learned about commercial mortgage backed securities, real estate debt structuring, and acquisitions over $100,000,000 dollars. (No joke: $100M was the minimum story!)
I found myself interviewing guys (yes, they were mostly men) from Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Citibank, etc. They made crazy cash and you know what I learned?
Money wasn't a taboo subject for them.
The men I interviewed had an ease when they talked about money.
These guys treated cash like the paper it was. They were very comfortable with it, because to them… it was a game.
After a few years I decided to shift my career to advertising and marketing, but my experiences at the magazine had a profound impact on me and I started to invest in real estate. After I purchased my first property with partners, I began to look into properties that I could buy, fix, and rent myself. I learned fast that in the real estate world you need to get comfortable talking about money if you want to make a profitable deal.
This is where YOU come in...
How comfortable are you talking about money? Many women are taught that's rude to bring it up. But how can you get the salary you want or the money you deserve if you can't ask for it?
Let me assure you, when you commit to talking about about money, it gets easier.
Everyone knows that if we want to feel good, we need to make health, exercise, and nutrition a priority. Well, it works the same for money. To get more confident and comfortable with the money conversations in your life, you have to strengthen your "money muscle" through consistent practice.
Until we get the hang of money talk, we’re going to stay frustrated with many aspects of our lives. We’re going to wish we:
- Made more money
- Had the guts to ask for a promotion
- Could stop feeling like frauds in our careers
- Didn’t split the bill evenly when all we had was soup
- Could talk to our partners about income, spending and debt
I am proud to be working to encourage and empower women like you to get more comfortable with all things dollars and cents. In fact I’m excited to help you make more and really own that you are worth it!
