Happy Sunday, Soothers! This week, I had a massive realization, which was also like, obvious, but sometimes it lands different, ya know? Anyways, the realization: I am the first female entrepreneur in my entire lineage (that I'm aware of). I am also the first unmarried woman in my entire lineage (that I'm aware of). I paired the two realizations and it hit me like a ton of bricks: I am meant in this lifetime to achieve what my mother, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, great-great-grandmothers and beyond could not because of the patriarchy: earn my own money from my heart's work, make that money MINE and MINE alone, learn to expertly manage the money on my own without the support (or interference/exploitation) of a man, and then share and teach this with others.
I don't know about you, but the majority of the women in my lineage were stay-at-home-moms and housewives, who, if and when they did enter the career field, it was to support their husband's work and visions. And I'm here to birth a new possibility.
Anybody who is interested in career, entrepreneurship, money management, and you need an extra boost of motivation and understanding, tune into this episode to reflect on what your ancestors who were women might want you to understand and learn about money in ways that they were not permitted to.
