What I loved About This Interview
I really enjoyed diving into financial principles with Ellen. I love that her advice is in alignment with the financial principles I know to be true. Her ability to understand how the brain works and how it impacts our financial decisions and abundance is so powerful. She understood that sometimes we have limiting beliefs; and walked us through how these limiting beliefs impact our bank account. I was so grateful for her practical advice about how to stop these limiting beliefs, and how to create a more abundant mindset.
I appreciated being able to ask Ellen questions that I think really impact women entrepreneurs; like how to deal with the financial roller coaster of owning a business. Let’s face it, owning a business can be a little crazy, and I was grateful for Ellen’s down to earth and practical advice. I also asked her what advice she would give to someone who is broke, has tons of debt, and wants to turn their financial situation around. Her answer was incredible and full of truth.
I think my favorite part of this interview was when I asked Ellen about a time when she felt like giving up. Her vulnerability in sharing about a time in her life when her husband changed jobs and they were financially strapped was so powerful. She shared about the struggle she went through at that time of financial uncertainty, and what helped her to not only get out of it but grow her business by 40% in the midst of a financial depression!
I am grateful for the knowledge, stories, & wisdom that Ellen shared; and I think this financial advice is timely for all of us. I know that as we all improve our financial health, we will be more able to live our purpose and serve those in need around us. You are going to love this time with Ellen!

What is 1 thing you believe every woman entrepreneur should know?
What you think, feel, and say to yourself about money has a direct impact on what shows up in your life.
When is a time in your life when you went through a challenge or felt like giving up and how did you overcome this?
In 1999 – with two little kids, a change in my business revenue model, and a husband who decided to leave his job – I changed the way I looked at things and turned our financial situation around quickly.
What did you learn from it?
That being willing to do whatever it takes as well as clarity of purpose makes all the difference.
What is one thing you want to share about this that will make all the difference for women?
Vision and generosity are precursors to prosperity
What is one thing that you wish someone told you that you had to learn the hard way?
When I stop blaming others I move out of difficult situations at lightning speed

What is one of the biggest challenges you have faced with balancing work, family, and taking care of yourself?
Thinking that there is such a thing as balance. It’s all about priorities
What did you learn from this challenge?

What helps you balance these roles now?
