Discover the three distinctive money mindset archetypes and move towards a path of greater personal and financial fulfillment.

Do you find yourself getting caught up in the mindset of “there’s just not enough to go around”?

Many of us are stuck in the belief that resources are scarce or “just enough”, and in the pursuit of success, it’s a zero-sum game where your gain is someone else’s loss. This mindset can manifest as a heavy burden when you're building a business, making you feel like it’s you against the world.

What it sounds like: “If someone else has something, there is less for me. It’s me against everyone else. Life is a constant battle for a limited piece of the pie.

What it could feel like: Physically tight and heavy, this mindset can lead to feelings of unworthiness, the need to constantly hustle, and a sense of enduring life rather than thriving.

What it looks like: Burnout, feeling trapped, and a lack of self-worth. The belief that ‘doing more’ is the key to access more in life, leading to over-contributing and excessive work. Perfectionism, driven by the fear of not having enough.

In this 90-minute workshop, Debbie Chen of The Holistic CFO™ will share the three prevalent money mindset archetypes and their broader impact on various aspects of our lives beyond finances.

This workshop is intended to help women entrepreneurs understand, question, and release limiting money beliefs and patterns that hold us back from creating the life we want.

Join us for an insightful exploration that includes:

  • The three types of money mindset
  • Identifying scarcity mindset triggers and narratives
  • Recognizing the pervasive effects on self-worth and well-being.
  • Learning practical tools for breaking free from the cycle of overwork and burnout.
  • Cultivating a mindset of abundance and fostering compassion for yourself and others
