Today on Financial Fluency I am pleased to have Luci McMonagle with me. Luci is an Abundance Breakthrough Coach and Speaker for women, the Founder of Learn about Money and the host of the Wealthy Wednesday Podcast Show.
Luci first started her business in 2010 to fulfill a need for women to learn the basics of money management, like financial literacy, how to balance a checkbook etc. Soon after beginning to work with clients, she discovered that they had money mindset stories that were holding them back from achieving their true potential. This also brought awareness to her own money stories, having grown up in an impoverished family. This ignited a desire in her to empower women and teach them the financial mindset tools they needed so they would not have to struggle the way she and her mother did. Ultimately, she wanted to create a money movement globally.
Luci shares how 99% of the time, money mindset issues are what hold people back. These issues often stem from their childhood beliefs imparted by their parents such as “Money is the root of all evil” or “I can’t afford that”. She talks about how money stories manifest themselves in women in many different ways, such as procrastination, hesitation, doing “busy” work, basically avoiding the things that bring clients through the door. She further indicates that sometimes these manifestations are unconscious, like literally holding back on their delivery due to not-enoughism and perfectionism.
In her quest to create a Money Movement for women, Luci provides 1:1 coaching, and will be introducing some new group programs this year, as well as women’s retreats for small groups.
You can connect with Luci on her website at www.lucimcmonagle.com, as well as on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Her podcast is available on iTunes HERE. And download her free Wealthy Planner at http://bit.ly/wealthplanner.
Re Money stories and money mindset: “Even if you break through those financial barriers, it will find a way to bring you back down to your financial set point.” - Luci
“Money is a tool that allows your life to be more comfortable, but it is not the end all be all and it doesn’t dictate what your personal value is as a human.” - Luci
