Another week another podcast, I have such a privileged life in that I get to speak to so many interesting people about things that matter to them.
So this week we are talking about money. So here's a thing for you to think about. What is your story around money? What are your feelings about money?
You might have seen the meme of heard the joke People spend a lot of time worrying about money. But money doesn't care what you think or feel about it.
Ok, it is not that funny but considering money does not exist as an entity we put a considerable amount of energy and time into it.
The story or relationship we have with our money starts young, and it is a story that will shape our future.
I have an up and down relationship with money, I have never had a lot, but there has always been enough. That is not to say I do not worry about it. Even now if I am having a lousy cashflow month and I know the deadlines and coming I get very uncomfortable, moody and to some extent quite depressed.
Our money relationship starts young, and I come from a family where the predominant phrase was money doesn't grow on trees. Both of my parents come from impoverished beginnings. It is no surprise that I hold a negative money story
I have looked to address it many times, and I am better than I was and not as good as I will become. I am working on it. So it makes me even more delighted to have the conversation with today's guest Laura Powner as she is a money mentor.
I saw Laura speak at an event in Brighton a few weeks back, and it was apparent there was a story to tell.
Laura is a Chartered Accountant and hypnotherapist. She has her feet in the grounded, practical world of numbers and spreadsheets. But is equally at home teaching clients from all over the world how to build self-worth as a Mind & Money Mentor.
In reality, it is difficult to have money and build net worth if you do not think you are worth it. How many examples are there of people who get money and lose the lot?
Laura has worked with thousands of businesses over the last 19 years and helps clients launch, grow, turnaround and sell their businesses by focusing both on the money and their mindset.
She is known for her straight-talking approach. She always says what she means which includes bad language, a hint of sarcasm, lots of humour and no “jargon.
And in her words, she is a lover of all things woo but balances this with a generous dose of muggle.
She is a bit unnerving for an accountant. It was a cracking conversation which went on well past the recording.
I know you are going to enjoy this conversation with Laura Powner.
