Before working with Ilana, I hadn’t really looked at my finances in detail following my divorce. Doing the work and going through the worksheets and exercises helped me discover why I relate to money the way I do. Supported by Ilana, I knew I could change some of my perceptions around money.
I took a good look at my financial situation and could see where I was doing well and what I needed to look at and adjust. I really enjoyed discovering and learning about my money archetypes. Ilana also helped me with some business coaching and how I could continue to grow my business. The biggest breakthrough was stopping giving my siblings money when they asked for it. I realised that just because we’re related and my parents aren’t around, this doesn’t mean I have to pick up the slack and play the mother role and help out all the time. It was not easy to break the behaviour as I’ve spent years doing it, but I have and am so pleased!
I’m more motivated to save now (which of course also means watching what I spend!), and my relationship around money has become more fun. One of my mantras has always been “I will always have enough money to do all the things I want to do” and this has only been reinforced. Ilana is also great at connecting you with other businesses for collaboration and networking. The weekly calls are an added bonus and a lovely way to connect and set goals for the week. Thank you Ilana!
