In this episode my friend Joline Godfrey will take you on her journey of teaching the idea, and ways and means, of financial fluency.
She began with the idea of helping girls at financial risk, and then kept on changing, and shifting, and expanding to come to where that idea is today.
Helping families and financial creatives – meaning all of us – become financially fit. The goal – for all of us to experience what is meant by “independent means.”
It’s different, it’s powerful, and Joline’s progress is inspiring. Listen to what she says about change, turning disaster into opportunity, and following your mission no matter what.
