“Doing the healing work is like brushing your teeth or taking a shower. It is something you do every single day.” – Jane Ysadora
Overview of the Episode
How do you get to the root cause of your money issues?
I’m excited to have in today’s episode 82 of Meaningful Work, Meaningful Life podcast, Jane Ysadora, a transformational money coach who went from broke single mum to become a financial consultant, making a six-figure income. She helps people to reach the root cause of why they struggle with money and work with their trauma. Then she teaches them what to do with money and how to achieve their money goals.
In this conversation, Jane shares how she takes a trauma aware approach to help clients find the root cause of their underearning, overspending, chronic debt, and the reason they are stuck in their current financial situations. She has discovered that these problems often spill over into their business and her goal is to help her clients navigate and heal those problems.
Here’s a snapshot of a few things we talked about
- Jane shares how we acquire many of our money problems beginning with our early attachment and how wounds during that time can lead to money issues.
- Why dance parties are essential to time management in Jane’s life to keep herself focused and engaged in her work.
- Jane’s background with money was often filled with either stressful conversations or no conversations regarding money and money management.
- Jane opens up about her financial struggles and the reality of avoiding money to the point of never checking her balance and praying her payment would clear when buying groceries.
- Why we avoid money and how we need to face our feelings of overwhelming to overcome our money avoidance.
- Overcoming our money challenges can take years but we have to be willing to do the required work to get there!
- Our symptoms and feelings around money are housed within our body; we need to discover the experience that has created those symptoms.
- We need to be a good steward of money by caring for them as resources we are blessed with and that can propel us to the next level. The process of being a good steward includes budgeting and personalization.
- Jane explains how the law of attraction has become toxic when we have this idea that we can do nothing and have a million dollars.
