Show Notes

We don't do a great job talking about money as a society.

There's a lot of shame, fear, and guilt that gets tied up with our feelings about money, and that’s one of the things today’s guest Denise Duffield-Thomas is on a mission to change.

Denise Duffield-Thomas is the money mentor for the new wave of online entrepreneurs who want to make money and change the world. She helps entrepreneurs like you charge premium prices, release the fear of money, and create First Class lives. Her books Lucky Bitch, Get Rich, Lucky Bitch, and her newest Chill and Prosper, give a fresh and funny roadmap to living a life of abundance without burnout. Her Money Bootcamp has helped over 8,500 students from all around the world.

I’ve been following Denise's work for years; having her here on the podcast is a dream come true. Denise and I are talking about the power of money, how our thinking about money can affect how we make it, save it, and spend it, the unsuspecting ways our money mindset impacts our businesses, and more.

Our conversation got pretty honest, and after sharing some of my experiences and stories with money, I had a bit of a vulnerability hangover. Still, it’s entirely worth it because I know we can only remove the stigma around money by having honest, powerful conversations about it.

I know you’ll get so much from this interview. Enjoy the episode!

TRANSCRIPT

 

Well, hello my friend. Welcome to a very special episode of the Coach with Clarity Podcast. I am so honored that you are joining me today. I'm your host, Lee Chaix McDonough and I have the great honor of sharing my conversation with Money Mindset Mentor, Denise Duffield-Thomas with you today. That's right, my friends. I have the privilege of interviewing Denise DT on the Coach with Clarity Podcast, which I have to admit is a dream come true. I have been following Denise's work for years. I started by reading her book Get Rich, Lucky Bitch! I then joined Money Bootcamp, and one of my favorite books that she's written, originally called Chillpreneur, has just been released, completely revised, brand new edition, under the title Chill and Prosper. It is a fantastic read, you will definitely want to pick up a copy. And we've got links to do so in the show notes. So on today's episode, Denise and I are talking about the power of money, and how our own way of thinking about money can affect how we make it, how we bring it in, how we save it, how we spend it. And I'll be honest with you, our conversation gets pretty real. There were moments in which it felt less like an interview and more like a conversation, where I shared some of my experiences and stories with money. And I won't lie I had a bit of a vulnerability hangover after my conversation with Denise and I might have it after I publish this episode today. And yet I know it is entirely worth it. Because as a society, we don't do a great job at talking about money. There's a lot of shame and fear and guilt that gets tied up with it. And one of the things Denise is on a mission to do is to remove the stigma around money. And we do that by having honest, powerful conversations about it, which is exactly what she and I did. And that's why I am so excited to share my interview with Denise Duffield-Thomas.
