I created a special page for Mothers because they are the backbone of every society. Their needs are different from women without children, and their concerns are more challenging. They are the unsung heroes in every culture.
In the years I have been coaching, I have seen repeatedly that Mothers who seek my help with their finances inevitably risk having the rest of their lives out of kilter; someone else has the power, when it should be they who have the power. After all, when raising children, they bear the lion's share of responsibility.
Most often the women who come to me do not have intimate relationships with their own Mother; this reflects the age-old conflict of loving someone but not trusting that someone.
Mothers constantly juggle the three "C's":
- Conflict...whose needs come first?
- Confusion...how to get control of the household and their finances?
- Consequences...what is the 'right' decision so that they don't feel their children will end up in therapy later on?
The answers in managing the three "C's" are found in the tools I give clients, whether in a workshop, seminar or private session. Tools are power. The proper terminology is a tool, being in the present is a tool, and the list goes on.
I welcome the opportunity to talk to Mothers so that they feel we're a good fit: their goals and the outcome I can promise will happen in the twenty weeks they will be engaged with The Financial Whisperer® .
I am forty-four years old and had never balanced my checkbook until now.
When I got married six years ago, my husband and I never discussed money; I just made certain assumptions about what he would provide and what I would contribute. I knew I had "money" issues but never wanted anyone to see them. When I had been working as a single woman, I made a lot of money and lived a very high lifestyle. Now that I am a mother, my lifestyle is quite different and at times scary.
Taking The Financial Whisperer® workshop helped me confront what I had been hiding my whole life.
I never realized that my childhood totally controls my adult life. The changes I have been able to make as a result of Pegi's worksho are life-altering. They have been profound for me. I feel I have control over making choices that are healthy for my family and me and have reduced the daily stress and anxiety over not having enough savings, not enough assets in a safe place, and how to stop sabotaging myself in reaching my goals.
Pegi is brilliant, spot on with her analysis, and creates a comfortable environment in which women can share sensitive issues and not feel shamed. She is funny, charming and totally in the moment with the group.
Please contact me if you need any questions answered.

Pegi's program is amazing. Well, really, it's Pegi that is amazing. Her program is just a structure through which she can share her brilliant guidance and insights into people.
What I absolutely love about working with Pegi is that if you're willing to get down and dirty and do the work, it really moves quickly. This is no on-the-couch-for-years uncovering layers and layers of "stuff" therapy. She literally cuts right down to the heart of the matter with razor-like precision to expose what is holding you back in all areas of your life. And you see that it's the same thing that's holding you back in every area.
What makes the whole process palpable and doable is that Pegi has a GREAT sense of humor, incredible compassion, and she creates a very open, non-judgmental safe space in which to TRULY be your real self. This really accelerates the process.
I have figured out conundrums that I've been trying to figure out my entire adult life, like how come I can never commit to a diet-and-exercise program for myself? We all know exactly what we need to do to be healthy, but there's a part of us that chooses not to do it. We think it's willpower and discipline, but it's not. I now completely, thoroughly and clearly understand why I could never make these commitments, and now I consciously, happily choose to make very different decisions in each moment of my day, decisions that support me really taking care of myself and being happy. How valuable and mindblowing is that?!!!
Up until now, my life has felt completely out of control. I've been living in a state of always being overwhelmed with all of the responsibilities of being a small business owner, a wife, a mother of two toddlers, and the one in charge of the household, and now it's clear how I can manage all of this.
Creating the life that I want and see for myself doesn't feel like such a mystery anymore. I feel like I'm in the driver's seat and I'm very happy to be moving forward intelligently, with much excitement, confidence and passion.
Thank you, Pegi!
