[inserts scream of “Something is on my dress-probably shrimp pasta🤷🏽‍♀️”]. In full transparency I’m never aware of how cute I look during our My Finances are Beautiful events. However, I am focused on making sure that our finances are as beautiful as we are. Sometimes it’s necessary to strip ourselves down outwardly to dig up what’s going on inwardly. I have hosted MFAB for 3 years now and there’s NO interaction better than a human connection. There are moments when we need to truly SEE one another-the tears, the financial heartache and those moments when we do a two step together to celebrate our money wins. I love you Charlotte. Huge THANK you to @dearjania of @pcgroup365 for teaching us as business owners that our community feeds us and therefore we should feed them with knowledge. #thefinancebar
