Develop Money Confidence & Budget Like a Pro with Brianna Firestone

Brianna Firestone


This episode was long-overdue. On the podcast, we’ve been talking about creating consciously healthy and happy lives, but we’ve never discussed money. 

It is definitely a difficult discussion. It can even be triggering for some people, but none of that changes how important it’s to talk about money in a non-judgemental and open manner. I had to find someone who can create a safe space, cover all the relevant topics gently and with humour, and I have to say, I  really came through on this one. 

We couldn’t have had a better guest than Brianna Firestone.

I found her an absolute delight to talk to; she’s immensely knowledgeable, warm, and engaging. More importantly, she gets it! She understands the struggle that we have a hard time articulating. Sometimes, we have the right answer, but we find it impossible to execute it, and Brianna, I feel, has helped address all that during this episode. 

So, are you ready to fix your relationship with money, find the confidence to build a budget, make transformative money moves, and cultivate a healthy wealth mindset?

Let’s dive in!

About the guest-

Brianna Firestone is the founder of The School of Betty, a platform that empowers women to create better relationships with their money, time, and energy so they can eliminate money stress and build financial freedom. As a Certified Life Coach and Financial Education Instructor, Brianna is an expert in teaching personal finance that is fun, approachable, and easy to implement. Her Fierce Finances 8 week program is a successful group coaching course that helps women change their money mindset, pay off debt, and create incredible, positive new habits around their finances. Brianna is a financial contributor for MindBodyGreen and her expert advice has been featured in Real Simple, The Financial Diet,, Reader’s Digest, and Business Insider.

Brianna has been through her own journey. At the age of 23, she was in massive debt, had no idea what a credit score is, and was completely out of touch with her money story. In the show, we meet a different Brianna. She has mastered the art of budgeting, healed her relationship with money. She is debt free and living a life that’s firmly in her control. During the show, she shared her own story and how we can all live more empowered lives by healing our money mindset, and the easy first step to creating a budget (something I’ve already implemented), and much more.
