I’m Stefanie O’Connell, personal finance author and founder of the site stefanieoconnell.com, a destination for women who want to feel as confident with their money as they do in their careers.
Feeling guilty about spending (and hate having to always say “I can’t afford that”).
Looking on Instagram and seeing your friends buy new houses and travel to exotic places and feeling like you’ll never be able to afford those luxuries.
Changing the subject or feeling embarrassed when people bring up investing, retirement or 401ks.
Lying awake at night wondering, “How am I going to pay for that wedding?”
Wondering when you will have enough money that you can ditch the IKEA furniture, Trader Joe’s wine, second-hand clothes and roommate, and finally uplevel your lifestyle.
Avoiding your credit card statements because you can’t think about your debt without having an anxiety attack .
Feeling like you can’t make big life decisions like moving, living alone, starting a business, leaving your job or having kids based on your financial situation.
Rather than overwhelm you with information, we’ll walk through the fundamentals one-step at a time, with short, easy-to-follow video trainings.
Every training video includes a worksheet so that you can get a hands-on understanding of the topic.
You’ll get an invite to our exclusive Facebook community of women who are equally committed to owning their financial independence.
If you're like most of the women I work with, you've spent your entire adult life struggling with money. Not having enough of it, overspending it, feeling anxious and ashamed when you think about it.
You shouldn't be afraid to break up with someone because of how much it will cost you. Or unable to open your bills until you've had a big glass of wine. You shouldn't find yourself in a dentist's chair, sobbing because you can't pay for a dental implant.
