Ep #66 – What I Learned Managing $2.5 Billion with Mariko Gordon

Mariko Gordon built a $2.5B money management firm from scratch, flying her freak flag high. It had a weird name, a non-Wall Street culture, and a quirky communication Style.

In 1995, when Mariko founded Daruma, only a handful of women of color owned their firms. She had to noodle out how to run a business while daily duking it out with Mr. Market and raising a family.

Today she mentors women who want to start a business, turn their side hustle into their living, better manage their finances, or work through a tricky patch in life or business.

She is also a poet, hypnotist, life coach, hula dancer, and Treasurer on the Board of the Asian American Writers’ Workshop.

In this episode, we talk about the essence of money, what money means and how to take care of yourself so you can be well resourced to have a good life and also fight the systems of patriarchy, racism, and other forms of oppression.

Ep #65 – From $100K debt to a $735K biz with Serena Hicks

Serena Hicks believes that making and having #BIGHappyMoney is a social justice issue. As a biracial business woman, who went from bankruptcy in 2008 to BIG Happy Money based on her realization that the Patriarchy hates a well-resourced BIPOC, woman and/or non-binary individual. She offers that your money making is HOW we change the world; financial freedom is indeed a powerful thing.

In this episode, she shares her story of what created $100k of debt, how shaming debt has its roots in classism and racism, and what helped her build the business where she’s able to make over $100K in a month.

You’ll love it :).

#64 – Receiving Money Block

Did you know that if you’re bad at receiving compliments, that’s actually a money block? Here’s how it works:

  • If you are bad at receiving compliments, you aren’t fully owning how powerful and amazing you are
  • And when you downplay your amazingness, it’s harder to charge a high rate, advocate for a higher salary and to say no to giving your time away for free to things that are out of alignment for you

And this is going to BLOCK money coming to you.

In this episode, I share a personal story of bumping up against this money block and where it comes from for me and possibly for you. And I share some techniques on how to overcome it so you can hit your next income goal and a way that’s ethical and easeful.
