I’ve been acquainted with today’s guest for many years and more recently had the opportunity to drop in more deeply at a women’s leadership event. Bari is a financial therapist and the creator and author of The Art of Money.

It’s no secret that I LOVE soaking up wisdom from women who are further along on their life path than I am and this is one of the reasons I was pumped to have her on the show! Bari’s big truth was about getting her ass kicked by perimenopause.

From there we discussed how she’s working to leave a legacy both in her business and through parenting her son. She also shared her story, the training and experience that led her to create her integrative approach to money (which includes the antidote to money shame!), and the relationship between urgency, responsibility and thoroughness.

This was one of those interviews I wished could have gone for a whole extra hour, we’ll definitely have to have Bari back. Enjoy and share!
