Financial fitness can seem like a dream that you can never bring into reality. You might feel like you are not good with money or that since your family is not good with money, you are doomed to repeat this pattern. Maybe you have debt, haven’t established an emergency buffer, or are merely surviving from one month to the next without saving for the future.


Today, I share the three lessons I have learned about financial fitness from Rihanna and Jay-Z. I share why your previous decisions and childhood circumstances shouldn’t impact the way you plan your financial future and the steps you can take to improve your financial success. I share how hard work, determination, and a positive attitude can help you create the financial freedom you deserve. I also reveal how Rihanna and Jay-Z’s inspirational financial stories can be used to help you gain a prosperous financial future.

“Financial fitness is all about the movement on the financial fitness spectrum. Each person can improve their level of financial fitness by taking a consistent, positive step forward.” - Tracey Bissett
