Overcoming the Poverty Mentality
“Passion and vision can turn striving into thriving, but it can’t exist in an atmosphere of spiritual poverty.”
Welfare to Wealth – The Money Story I never Wanted to Tell…
is about my journey in discovery of overcoming a poverty mentality – and how I came to understand that wealth was already inside me. Focusing on this journey I am revealing never exposed details about my life on welfare and the money struggles and lessons that taught me resourcefulness and savvy money skills.
This is a memoir about my experience as one of 7 children raised by a single woman with a 6th-grade education and spending most of my life on welfare. I later found myself in the same position raising 2 children alone and landing on welfare too. My story of how my relationship with my controlling mother, a cheating husband, and personal tragedy shaped my association with money to ultimately becoming a wealth advisor for women.
This book will inspire you to be more involved in navigating your financial affairs and empower you to achieve financial security and independence no matter where you came from or the challenges you may face.
