Money is the ultimate taboo topic.
The Financial Gym is a company that I truly believe is changing the world.
High earners and those with large assets often seek the help of professionals when it comes to finance, but the people who need help and financial education the most do not have access. The Financial Gym is changing that.

Whether you are in debt, are new to the idea of personal finance, or feel like you’re doing well, The Financial Gym is for you. They work with clients of all income levels and walks of life. Saying The Financial Gym changed my life would be an understatement. I have savings, a true debt payoff plan, and relief from financial anxiety knowing my trainer is there no matter what.

I highly recommend The Financial Gym to everyone. Similarly to an exercise gym, working consistently on financial fitness will dramatically transform your life over time.

Book a free call to find out more information. The team is paid hourly and has no incentive to pressure you to join. You won’t feel guilty or obligated while talking to them. Make sure to tell them Kristen sent you,

If you are on the fence about joining the gym, here are some of the blog posts I've written about my experience since starting in December 2019. 



CBD has become very popular over the last few years. I’m sure you’ve seen it sold in retail stores, coffee shops, and probably heard buzz around it.

CBD is a natural ingredient found in hemp flowers. It can be used as a health supplement and is known to have many benefits for both mental and physical wellness.

Not all CBD is created equally and purchasing high quality product will ensure a better experience. I have been using Equilibria since April 2020 and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to give CBD a try. Your purchase will come with a free consultation with a dosage specialist. They will talk with you and recommend how to use dose for the desired outcomes.

Equilibra is a company focused around women’s health around CBD, but their products are gender neutral. My partner often uses the topical cream for back pain, roller sticks for his migraines, and the consumables when needed. I love that Equilibria focuses on women’s health because for so long, we have been left out of the equation in medicine development and study.

I am a monthly subscriber to Equilibria. CBD is most effective if you routinely utilize it. The box I get each month always includes soft gels and the daily drops (mint flavored). I use the CBD topical cream and roller duo, but don’t need those to come in the monthly box. I add them when my supply is running low.

If you want to try Equilibria, MY LINK gives you $10 off your first order!


There are many reasons I am a fan of Misfits Market.

It is a produce subscription box that I have been ordering for over a year. They rescue produce from farmers that while perfectly great to eat cannot be sold for cosmetic reasons. It is great quality, organic, and remind me of vegetables from my dad’s garden.  
They offer different sizes and delivery options. I get a small box for myself and partner every other week and it is more than enough! I try to get to try produce we normally wouldn't or that isn't available in my grocery store. 

You pick the produce from a list of options and after the selections are confirmed, you can browse the marketplace and add anything else you need that week. The marketplace is full of diverse items sold much more discounted than you see at the stores. Coffee beans and dates are staples I get from the Misfit’s Market Marketplace but there are many options.

I highly recommend it!

disclaimer: sometimes there are mistakes and messes when shipping fresh food. Misfits is a small business with a great mission. During Covid 19, they gave every employee a substantial raise and hired even more. Any time there was an issue with my box, I emailed customer service and the issue was resolved case by case within 24 hours. I've been a member for over a year and maybe had four experiences with customer support. Each time the team was kind and gave me no trouble.


If you use social media for business, being intentional and having a plan is the difference between seeing real growth and staying stagnant. The Content Planner is the first of it’s kind specifically designed for social media and is better than all of the versions trying to copy.

The Content Planner is 15 months and FILLABLE. This means no matter when your planner arrives, you can start using it no matter the time of year and get the most from every month.
The planner comes with stickers for you to organize and fill the pages, which I love as someone who isn’t great at the cute bullet journaling.

There are big spaces with prompts to help create your goals and then the space to create actionable steps to achieve them. There is a yearly overview, lists of holidays, and even themes to help you plan. The Content Planner is the perfect balance of prompts to keep you motivated and excited with the space and design for the flexibility and customization I need.

Beyond the physical planner, Kat is an incredible educator, coach, and business woman. I highly recommend following @thecontentplanner on Instagram. Kat is consistently showing up, providing so much valuable information, and constantly gives back to the community. I’ve had the privilege of attending her virtual content planning workshop and she truly is a great person.

Every year she releases a new planner, I’ll be on the list to buy it pre-sale. That’s how much I love her product. This is a high compliment because I am incredibly picky about planners. For years, I made my own because I couldn’t find one that quite fit my needs. I cannot recommend this planner enough.

Use MY LINK if you decide to purchase a planner from Kat. She gives a great kickback bonus as part of her referral program (which you can join if you decide to buy!)



Investing is incredibly important. It is practically impossible to reach financial independence or retire without some sort of investing. If you are reading this and haven’t started investing yet, I HIGHLY recommend starting. Even if you feel like there is no room in your budget, starting small is better than not at all. This is where Acorns comes in.

Acorns in an app that allows you to begin investing with your spare change. You are able to open different types of investment accounts and set up recurring transfers. My favorite feature of Acorns, the round ups. You can link your debit cards to the account and each time you make a purchase, it is rounded up to the nearest dollar and deposited into your investment account.

If saving money is a challenge or you tend to be a spender (like me) little tricks like this are a great way to save money without the brain energy required to do so. Once the debit card is linked and you have auto-transfers set up.. Hide the app away. In the moment, you probably won’t miss the money being transferred away from your account because they are small.. But it adds up. I left my app unlooked at for an entire quarter and there was just over $300 between the two accounts.

While investing your spare change won’t get you to financial independence alone, planting these seeds will benefit future you. When it comes to investing, time is the most important factor. Once you are able to save and invest more aggressively, you will already have a foundation. Investing a couple hundred dollars a year now is SO valuable over not investing. You pay your rent, your bills, and other utilities… make paying YOURSELF a priority as well.
