The Money Moves Workshop

Thursday, January 27th, 2022 @ 10am – 4pm PST via Zoom (will be recorded)

“I don’t dance, I just make money moves.”

If I’d ever thought there was a chance that I’d be quoting Cardi B in a promotion, I’d have give up writing a long time ago. But alas…here we are!

In January, we’ll be hosting the Money Moves Workshop.


  • Date: Thursday, January 27th

  • Time: 10am PST – 4pm PST

  • Location: ZOOM (link will be sent prior to start)

  • All live sessions will be recorded for you to watch later or if you can’t make it

  • Early Bird Tickets are $97

What We’ll Cover:

  • How I separate my biz and personal finances w/out headaches

  • How I track cashflow to make sure I always have enough

  • Tools I use to calculate monthly revenue, expenses and investments (w/real examples)

  • How I consistently set and hit my goals with money

  • Whatever else I think of

We’re also going to bring in guest experts to talk about:

  • Day-to-day bookkeeping, financial tracking + understanding cashflow and accounting for self-employed and entrepreneurs.

  • How to build a balanced portfolio that makes you wealthy over time.
