Societal messages often suggest that women must choose between taking care of their families and taking care of themselves. This, coupled with persistent wage inequality, false assumptions about women’s financial literacy, and previous laws that restricted women’s money-related activities, can inhibit women from creating wealth and achieving financial freedom.
In this episode, our guest Sarah Walton challenges these limiting beliefs and empowers women to take control of their financial lives. As Sarah puts it, “Women need each other.” She helps women to become financially independent and make decisions that align with their values and goals.
Sarah is the founder of Sarah Walton Coaching, and in this conversation, she shares her inspiring journey from humble beginnings to successful entrepreneur and business coach.
Tune in to Episode 808 to hear more about Sarah’s story and her insights on how women can build financial prowess and reclaim their power.
