Jacquette M. Timmons is a financial behaviorist who works with everyone from the middle class to the 1% – helping them manage their choices around money.
Most of her clients currently have or desire to have an entrepreneurial stream of income. In particular, she integrates financial and behavioral analysis to help them blend the emotions of money with the math of money, let go of their money “baggage” and start to move forward with financial goals more clear — feeling confident and in control so they can save more, remove debt, invest smarter and earn more.
Jacquette is the founder of Sterling Investment Management, Inc. (a financial coaching and education company) and the author of Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate. Her work has been featured on “Good Morning America,” CNN, HLN, FOX, Black Enterprise, NPR, and the Wall Street Journal.
In this episode we discuss how often times the same emotions that cause people to overeat, contribute to people mismanaging their finances. We also dive into how to feel in control with your money, understand the emotions that come with this loaded topic and Jacquette’s surprising tip that has nothing to do with saving more.
