Financial Fluency Episode #43: Breaking Free with Kathleen Ventura

At the end of their trip, Kathleen knew she wanted to make this lifestyle sustainable. So she did! Listen in to find out how she did, and how it’s going now.

Kathleen Ventura is a transformational life & business coach and TEDx speaker who believes living with intention breeds freedom. Making a move in 2012 that would terrify even the bravest of non-conformists, Kathleen quit her high-pressure sales job in the city, sold everything and set out to ride her bike across the United States. After 2 years of perpetual travel, she found her calling as a transformational coach for beginner women entrepreneurs.
Kathleen now coaches women on the verge of quitting their day job to step into full time entrepreneurship. In her signature mastermind, Own It, she helps new service-based business owners understand and implement what is necessary to build a foundation for a successful business.

I do two episodes every week, one solo and one interview.
I also have the fantastic Mastering Money Matters group, a monthly membership group where you can join and we talk about all the different pieces week by week of getting our money systems set up and how we look at, think about and value money and all areas of our lives.
It’s a very supportive and private group just for women and it’s a safe place to hang out and talk. It’s kind of the extension of the interviews I’ve been doing with mainly entrepreneurs on this show, and it’s where we can talk about the things we may not want to broadcast out to a broader audience.

Very informative. Best takeaway who do I need to be to achieve what I want and what do I love doing. Thanks Jen and Kathleen.
