Upcoming Workshop for Personal Historians

Write Your Way to Better Relationship with Money (5-week workshop)

For personal historians only!

Would you like to talk more comfortably about money with current and potential clients? Start by developing a better relationship with money, yourself.

We’ll use the technique of Guided Autobiography (small-group discussion and weekly writing prompts) to explore the topic. This is a NOT a class on pricing and negotiation, NOR is it a a writing class in the usual sense. The magic comes from small group discussion followed by solo reflection, captured in writing, that brings to light attitudes that might be sabotaging your personal history business. My goal is to prepare you to have successful relationships with your clients where money is concerned.

What past participants have said:

“Sarah was great, and I continue to think about insights that emerged during the class.”

“The content was excellent, thought provoking, well planned, and the participant exchanges varied and valuable too!”

“I found it very helpful and was well and truly ready to let go of so many of my self­‐limiting beliefs about money. You also provided plenty of follow­‐up information to take the learnings and insights further.”

“I enjoyed sharing with others and peers as well. The technology worked well.”

“It was great to talk about a ‘taboo’ topic.”

“Listening to others respond to the same prompts I wrote about sharpened my own thinking, regardless of whether they expressed similar feelings/experiences or very different ones.”

About the workshop:

Over five weeks we will meet for discussion and in-class writing exercises. You will have a short weekly writing assignment based on prompting questions. Each week participants will read what you have written for feedback and group discussion. Week by week, we examine–

  1. Attitudes we picked up from our families about money, earning power, etc.
  2. Past work experience and what they show us about our attitudes toward money
  3. Current beliefs and attitudes that might be holding us back about money, worth, value, etc.
  4. Goals for the future regarding earning, saving, and investing.
