Episode Description

As a lifelong entrepreneur who dropped out of college, today's guest, Ilissa, felt like a total failure. In her family, "if you’re not in college then you’re doomed". After getting married at 21 and working at a gas station to make ends meet she was working her ass off for $10/hr. After being denied a dime/quarter an hour a raise and told would never leave the gas station, she knew that she was meant for more, but had no clue how to make that happen. After some failed attempts at business ownership, she hit rock bottom in 2016, had a miscarriage the previous year and didn’t want to be doing life anymore. This was her wake up call - SHE KNEW THINGS HAD TO CHANGE. Ilissa kicked off a 6yr+ healing journey to overcome the lifetime's worth of abuse. As a result she was able to financially leave her marriage and grow a business which was what she wanted all along. In 2018 she ran full steam ahead into her destiny. She created her own method, SELFFmade Biz Magic (Success goals, Empowered views, Life goals, Financial Mindset & Friction) and today has a team around her to share her success and growth with! As the visionary in her life, she is experiencing growth across the board in her life, and soon she'll be launching workshops, writing a book and launching my Girl at the Gas Station™ Ilissa is on a mission to help women that are just feeling stuck and need a hand up; and she wants you to know that "sometimes it isn’t just mindset that is in your way, but a system that has been built to keep you small." Join us for this conversation today with my guest, Ilissa Goman!

Real Money with Lisa Chastain

Monday at 10AM on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Not enough women are talking about money. The truth is, so many women feel shame and guilt about the choices they are making financially, and it isn't their fault! Men earn 90% of the wealth in the world. Although women are the majority spenders at 85%, we are left to figure out for ourselves how to manage our money following male dominated advice. Every woman is capable of feeling confident about the choices she is making about her money. The problem is that for so many women, money isn't relatable. Experts are talking over your head, and this show is the perfect place for you to improve your confidence and relationship with money. My goal is for women to lead in all areas of their life with clarity that they are making the right choices for their families, their careers, and their futures. With Real Money, we are going to share real stories of women who are tackling their most difficult financial challenges.
