or celebrated your financial success with other people?
Now, I'm a six-figure earner, homeowner, raising two kids, on my way to Coast FIRE, published author of two personal finance books, featured on CBC, Globe & Mail, and CTV, a certified Trauma of Money Practitioner, and consumer debt free.
When I was struggling and in debt, I didn't tell anyone
All because I started talking about money
But without community, a lot of shame and guilt exists in the way we approach our finances. Most women do not have friends or family that they can speak to about money.
We'll talk about our sex lives and shopping habits before we talk about how much we make, whether we're in debt, or what we want our retirement to look like.
We should care about whether our friends are seeing the financial success they hope to achieve. We should hold space to open up to one another about our wins — and our losses.
Society teaches us to keep money individual and secret, but we do not benefit from this. We only suffer. And we deserve so much better.
Challenge the idea that it's taboo to talk money
Create a compassionate way to connect
Hold space without trying to fix problems
Put love, care and generosity first
Provide you with the accountability you need to put yourself and your money first
This is a space to empower you personally and financially. To feel confident, to find genuine connections, to build secure money habits, and to enable you as you navigate your finances, your job, and your life.

But now, I never let the shame win. Today, I don't need to add up every item I put in my grocery cart. I don't waste mental energy doing mental accounting. And I don't feel shame for buying the damn latte. Instead, my money goes toward the things that bring me joy, that light me up and that reduce my anxiety. If I need to book an emergency flight to visit a friend, I do. If I want to spend money on an item that isn't a need, I do.
Talking about money, building a solid foundation for my finances and creating a world where it's normal to strive for more allows me to be present. And I want the same for you.

Seeing another woman talk about paying off debt and still being able to live inspired me. Huge thank you for opening up a platform for women who sometimes need another woman's perspective
As much or as little as you can fit into your schedule. Members are asked to commit approximately two hours per month to attend live sessions and workshops. Anything over and above is up to you, which includes participating in discussions, attending expert and bonus events, and supporting fellow members.
Our community is designed for women who want a safe and judgment-free space to discuss finances, celebrate financial wins, and seek accountability. It is open to women internationally.
If you opt for a month to month membership, you are free to cancel at any time. If you pay to access a full year of the community and membership, you can cancel your renewal for the following year, but are locked in for the entire duration of the calendar year. Given that you can cancel anytime, refunds are only given on a case by case basis.
For monthly memberships, the day that you pay is that day you'll be charged each month moving forward. The payment in that month will be payment for the upcoming month. So, for example, if your first payment is in November, that payment is for December's access. If you plan to cancel, please make sure to cancel before your payment date.
We will be opening once every month for new members to join The Neighbourhood. The next opening for new members will be a limited open from December 28, 2023 to January 1, 2024.
