I talk a lot about storytelling and the importance of integrating stories into your presentations and talks.

Well, money has a story too.

Your money story may be driving behaviors in your business.

My guest is Melissa Houston, a CPA and Financial Strategist for CEOs. I’ve gotten to know Melissa over the past few months as she’s gone through our Thought Leader Academy to develop her speaking skills and create her keynote signature talk.

Melissa and I talk about:

  • The #1 challenge she sees with the women she works with about their finances
  • What it means to have a money story and how much that can impact our relationship to money and to our business
  • The difference between using money to spend vs. invest
  • Melissa’s own story around money
  • Why Melissa decided she wants to be a speaker
  • What Melissa got out of her experience in our Thought Leader Academy
