Today Jen and Niamh are talking about Money. Not just any money, but Jen’s Mastering Money Matters Program. This episode was recorded in the midst of Jen doing her very first launch for a special offer for MMM.
While we talk about money, let’s talk about fear of failure, insecurity, and the way imposter syndrome comes up around putting yourself out there to talk about a topic that you don’t have a certification in.
Jen tells the story of being suddenly confronted with massive medical bills when her daughter was diagnosed with Autism in 2010, back before ACA, when she had an individual family insurance policy that had an autism exclusion. This threw her finances into a giant jumbled mess between high, unexpected medical bills and irregular income from self-employment. In the midst of all of this financial confusion and while trying to set up an autism program for her kids, Jen had a medical bill sent to collections, not because she didn’t mean to pay it, just because she got confused. Then she missed a bill and had a late payment, then an overdraft charge. That was when she realized that she had to do something if she was going to get through this without bankrupting her family. What she learned through research, reading, taking courses and eventually talking with other women on her Financial Fluency podcast and working with women in small groups and one-on-one, is what is now in the Mastering Money Matters program.
Niamh also talks about her experience in the program herself, the changes she has made and the effects those changes have made in the past year and a half.
