Today on Financial Fluency, I am happy to have Nicole Lewis-Keeber from Nicole Lewis-Keeber Coaching. Nicole has an 18 year history as a therapist. After dealing with this high stress position that did not pay well, she decided she had to go on her own, both for her sanity and in order to take control of her financial destiny.
She is now a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Tapping Into Wealth Coach and a Money Mindset Master specializing in helping women with their money and mindset, and having a loving relationship with their business.
In her position as a social worker she shared the challenges that many women face in the workplace when they are slotted into a pre-determined salary for a particular job, often expected to work overtime and beyond their pay scale out of the goodness of their own heart, especially as a caregiver or therapist.
Our discussion covered the lack of a supportive system for self-employed people, in particular women, in terms of health insurance, paid family leave, maternity leave and time off to care for loved ones. And how the current political climate is re-animating trauma within many women across the country.
Nicole began her business working with women on their mindset with money. She would look at the paradigm of their family history, and how they valued themselves and what they thought was possible. She quickly discovered that the fear of being seen and asking for their worth were often the root causes of their resistance and feelings of being unsafe, and not the money.
Her system begins with an examination of their money, followed by their emotions, the source of their emotions, how they are triggered and how to deal with those triggers. She teaches her clients to see their business as a relationship and to treat it with intention.

Nicole Shares her Personal Message Here:
Statistics show that 80% of women-owned businesses close within the first 18 months. This statistic drives me crazy because I know how insanely capable women are in creating a sustainable business that gives them financial freedom if they are able to overcome their blocks to money and success. It is my desire to flip this statistic and help women Master their mindset, Health their heart, Empower their future and Make some damn money!
“When you have had traumatic events, or abusive relationships or toxic relationships, if you don’t set up your business as a relationship with intention, you are going to default into toxic ways of relating to your business. You are going to beat yourself up with it, you're going to be your own mean boss, and at the end of the day you are going to feel abused and you will be the one who did it to yourself.” - Nicole Lewis-Keeber
