WWC – Money Beliefs

Episode #63 – Minding Your Money

Our money beliefs can impact so many different areas of our lives including our health and often we are not even aware that this is happening. In this week’s episode of Wise Women Conversations I chat with Money Coach Jane Walters. Jane was a Financial Advisor for many years until she realised that while she was giving her clients the best advice it was their beliefs around money that was stopping them from getting the financial freedom that they desired.

Jane then decided to become a coach so that she could help her clients to address their beliefs around money. Many women in midlife were bought up to believe that money doesn’t grow on trees and that it was the husband’s role to provide financially for the family while the wife raised the children. While this is likely not how we are living our lives today, those belief systems are still embedded somewhere in the sub-conscious mind and might be impacting your financial decisions today.

It is not uncommon for women in mid-life to not have enough superannuation to support them for the rest of their life, this means that many women need to work for a lot longer than they might want to. Women are also living longer, so need more money to survive. All of these factors can leave women with very little money and options as they age.

This is a fascinating conversation with Jane as she shares some tips to help you to change your beliefs around money so that you can protect yourself financially in the future.

WWC – Celebrating Silver Sirens

Episode #62 Celebrating Silver Sirens

This week’s episode of Wise Women Conversations is a re-published conversation that I had with Faith Agugu who is the creator of a fantastic event for mid-life women called Silver Sirens. Faith invited me along to her last event and it was fantastic to see such a great line up of women who are in mid-life sharing their stories and wisdom.

Faith has a special interest in the mental health in African and Australian aboriginal communities and in this conversation we also touch on a very important topic and Faith shares how she got involved with an organisation called GMAR (Grandmothers Against Removals). The removal of children from aboriginal families and communities is something that needs to be changed. Even if it is deemed that it is unsafe for a child to stay with their family, the first option should be to find someone else in the community to look after this child and this is not happening. As a racial wellness coach this topic is very close to Faith’s heart. Have a listen to this conversation and learn more about Faith and Aunty Hazel.

WWC – Saving Children

Episode #61 – Saving Children

This episode of Wise Women Conversations Podcast is a little different from normal. The first difference is that I have a Wise Man on the podcast rather than a Wise Woman. The second difference is the topic – saving children from sex trafficking. I wish that I didn’t have to have this conversation with Marc but the work that Marc does with Destiny Rescue is real and it is needed.

Destiny Rescue is a Not-for-Profit organisation started in Australia over 18 years ago, and is dedicated to fighting the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children in seven nations. Their highly trained agents run covert and raid rescue operations, day and night to locate and rescue children being used and abused.

With the ongoing support of generous donors, Destiny Rescue has successfully liberated over 5,200 individual victims of human trafficking. They have been instrumental in the closing of many bars, clubs and brothels known to be targeting children for sex work, and have seen numerous perpetrators prosecuted.

Their tireless work has also helped keep hundreds more young ones from entering the sex trade through various local community prevention programs and delivered justice and care for those who have been rescued.

I didn’t say much in this episode because I felt that I needed to be quiet and let Marc share the story of these children. By the end of the episode I was in tears. If there is anything that you can do to assist please visit www.destinyrescue.org and either give a one time gift or help to rescue a child.

WWC – Overcoming Childhood Trauma

Episode # 59 – Overcoming Childhood Trauma

In this episode of Wise Women Conversations I chat with Beverley Webb from Step Forward Coaching. Beverley had a really tough childhood but she managed to survive and eventually become a very successful business woman. But Beverley hadn’t left the trauma of her childhood behind her, it started to show up in her health and also her relationship with her children.

After losing everything, including her health, Beverley saw this as the chance to remove the masks that she had been hiding behind and find her voice.

Once Beverley healed the trauma of her childhood she knew that she had to help others find their voice as well. As a constant high achiever managed to retrain as a coach in a short time frame so that she could start helping others as soon as she could.

Beverley that silence makes the guilt and shame worse, this is why she believes it is her legacy is to use her voice to hep others and she does this every single day with her words and her actions. This was a truly inspiring conversation that I thoroughly enjoyed.

WWC – Cossie Confidence with Anita

Episode #55 – Cossie Confidence

Have you ever felt embarrassed to go to the beach in your swimsuit? Have you hidden your body underneath an oversized top? Then this episode of Wise Women Conversations is a must listen to for you. I am having a chat with Anita McLachlan from Sequins and Sand which is an online store that sells swimsuits (or cossies in Australia), leisurewear and travel wear.

As Anita was speaking to her customers when they were trying to find the best swimsuit for them she realised that many women simply didn’t feel confident being seen in their swimwear. She heard stories of women who were missing out on fun holidays with their family because they were embarrassed about the way that they looked. This led Anita to create a campaign called the Cossie Confidence Campaign which was designed to help women to feel confident in their swimsuit and to celebrate their body. This campaign not only allowed to hear the stories of these beautiful women it allowed the women to finally put themselves first and have some fun.

As you listen to this podcast you will hear the passion that Anita has for supporting women to be proud of their body and to enjoy their life. Anita continues to run the Cossie Confidence campaign and is currently planning this year’s campaign. If you are interested in being a part of this campaign pop over the Anita’s website -www.sequinsandsand.com.au and click on the button.

Anita also shared her vision for bringing several hundred women in their swimsuits together on to a beach and having a drone fly over and take photos of everyone celebrating. I for one am keen to see this happen and Anita and I spoke about how we could make this happen together, so watch this space.

You can find Anita on facebook – https://www.facebook.com/sequinsandsand.com.au/ – and each week Anita brings speakers to do some facebook lives, so check out some of these videos over on facebook.

Anita is offering all listeners of the Wise Women Conversations Podcast a beautiful scarf with any purchase from her Clothing/Travelwear Section if you use the code ANGELACOUNSEL. This offer is only until June 30th 2020 and cannot be used with any other offer. Only 1 scarf per person.
