Oooh, Shiny!

Episode 119

Stéphanie’s parents weren’t always the best at managing money. As she was entering adulthood she realized that if she wanted to have money it was up to her. She worked hard and did well but continued to struggle. After her kids and husband were all diagnosed with ADHD, Stephanie finally allowed herself to be tested and discovered what she already knew, she had ADHD.

Knowing that her brain learns and processes differently, Stéphanie was able to rewrite her money story. She and her husband put tools in place to help them better manage their finances. They have regular check-in meetings to stay on track and they are now debt free. They have even been able to save and pay for a backyard renovation and regularly have space in their budget for fun stuff like eating dinner out.

Stéphanie now coaches those who want to overcome limiting beliefs and reach their full potential. In this episode she shares her experience and some of her best tips on how to break free from inner conflict and live the life you desire.



"If I wanted to have money it was up to me."

Stéphanie asked to wear a unicorn costume for our recording to reflect how unique each person is. I already had a unicorn horn on standby and added a shiny shirt and boa to make my unicorn extra fancy.

Follow the show on Instagram @moneyheartshow to see more pics of my costumes from each episode. I also include my guest’s costume when they choose to wear one.
