Do you think creativity and money live in two separate worlds, or can they be powerful, transformative allies? Join us on Money In Your Life this week as we talk with Luna Jaffe, Certified Financial Planner™, writer and visual artist. Luna will describe new ways to understand the magic and creative power of money. “We live passionately and money is often an annoyance, like a gnat buzzing in our ears”, writes Luna. “We get distracted by shiny objects. We want so much for ourselves and for the world. We have big dreams and tender hearts.” Tune in and learn to develop a relationship with money that enables you to do your creative work in the world, and also allows you to feel financially solid and resilient.

The goal of Money in Your Life is to give you the insight and motivation to be more effective and successful with all aspects of your personal finance. We believe money is a tool that can support deeper values of individuals, couples and families. We also know that too many options, too little time and the blizzard of modern money choices make it easy to opt-out of the whole conversation. We want you to opt-in. Money in Your Life will provoke thoughtful discussions that bring knowledge, curiosity and humor to the reality of money. Each week we will engage you with intriguing conversations to help you understand and assess how money actually operates in your life. We will present a wide variety of individuals and resources to increase clarity and expand awareness on multiple levels. Our intention is to introduce you to new ways money can serve you rather than just drive you.
