Financial Karma | Money Management | Mindfulness | Mindset | Holistic Financial Advice |

Join me and help me shape the future of how we talk about, share about and debate (not fight) about what our financial lives should look like (for our homes and our businesses). At the root of the complexity, and for some of us, disaster or stress, is money. Let's get real this our our personal dreams. There's nothing to be afraid of or ashamed about because we are so much alike, us humans. I'm going on this journey with you so come along for the trip, the introspection, the fun and the off-road antics. Awareness-intention-accountability.

My book group reads books that help us in our lives. Even though I am an accountant, I am also a creative person. We are currently reading a book about money and it’s about being creative with our money.


Too often we get boxed in with thoughts and plans and almost become paralyzed and unable to move forward and do all the things in life that we want to.


I am a believer in having faith that good things will happen to you. But I am not one to sit back and say “Oh well, God will provide” and you don’t have to worry about things. I would rather think of it as God supports me in my endeavors to provide for myself and take care of myself. 


We all have temporary scarcities in our lives, but the important thing is what we do after that temporary scarcity.


  1. The reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once. Given enough time, the Universe will give you what you need.
  2. The Universe provides a framework for all good things. It takes the chaos of life out of play and allows things to evolve the way they are supposed to.The Universe provides openings for your next step.
  3. Anything is possible when you believe the Universe will give you a hand. 
When we are open to the Universe, it will bring the best to us and it will allow us to grow.

There are 3 things that I’m sharing about play today. It’s hard to justify it as an adult and it seems like we just don’t stop working to play very often. This is one area where we have to re-frame our thinking to make a change in how we prioritize play and make it a regular part of our lives.


  1. Giggle - make it a point to get together with people that you know will make you giggle.
  2. Play dress up - dress however you feel like it to go to work and wear whatever makes you feel playful.
  3. Swing on a swing set - it’s not just for kids! Make it a point to stop every time you see a park with an adult swing. There’s something about the reckless abandon of going back and forth and high that just takes you to a different place mentally.

Do you ever hear people make blanket statements about situations or issues that you know aren’t factually accurate? It’s honestly hard for me to hear. Why does judging other people cost?
  1. It’s a distraction. It takes your focus off what is most important in your life.
  2. It promotes a fixed mindset. You can’t be open to other viewpoints when you have a fixed mindset.
  3. It causes you to be disconnected from people.
There are so many ways we can contribute to a positive society in our corner of the world. We don’t have time to be sidelined and distracted by judging others.

There was a time in my life that I thought I had the security that money brings.I didn’t truly understand that it wasn’t bringing me happiness until I was in a situation where I had much less money.
I got some honest feedback from someone today. I had a very visceral reaction to the words he spoke. He was trying to tell me to pay attention to my body alignment and breathing. Words like this are hard for all of us to hear, but words are powerful. So I wanted to share with you 3 reactions to the power of words in our lives:
  1. Change is good.
  2. Words can help us build community.
  3. Fear really will not kill you.
Think about your words before your speak and also try to be discerning about the words you are hearing.

I just feel lighter! Well, let me back up and explain. Sometimes our family relationships get a little bit out of whack. We may have demands placed on us that are unreasonable, and we also may find that our expectations are constantly not being met by family members. It’s been true for me, that when I release emotional weight, my physical weight gets in balance. I think so many of us got through life with more of an “emotional weight problem” than we do a physical weight problem and those go hand in hand. 
Releasing yourself from the emotional bondage of past mistakes and problematic family relationships can provide freedom for you emotionally, and that’s what makes me feel lighter! Emotional baggage can impact your physical weight and also your money. There are so many emotions tied up in both of those aspects of our lives. The scarcity mentality can overtake your financial life and it’s important for you to work through your issues with family relationships and with your money.
I encourage you to embrace abundance in all of your relationships! This will take your relationship with money and family in the right direction, and you won’t be weighed down with the negative aspects that can be harmful to you!

I don’t know how many of you listen to the Story Corp podcast on NPR, but I just found out that they now had an app. So, I uploaded it and went to visit my parents. They are aging and they can’t do quite as much as they used to. So this app presented a great opportunity for me to document some of the stories of their lives in their own voices. So the thing that is different about this app compared to other voice recording apps is that it will save your audio recording in the Library of Congress. So, it’s a great way to preserve the stories, that will forever be a part of the Library of Congress.

Join me tomorrow as I am re-thinking my family relationships!

Last year I did my will, and I had expressed my desire to be cremated. It’s a really kind thing you can do for your loved ones to put a plan in place for your departure. In the course of that process, I found out about the Maryland Anatomy Board. When you die and seek their assistance, they basically take the body and use it for medical training. It’s done in a respectful way. After this, they cremate you and return your remains to your family.
The Karma is that you get to help people with medical training and the financial part of it is that you don’t end up having to pay for your final expenses.  It’s better to have these arrangements made long before you need it.

Risk and failure are ingredients in having a more balanced approach to living. If we are living in reality, risk and failure will be a steady visitor in your life!

By living through trauma, you can actually increase your resilience. The point is that you have to be willing to take a risk. It’s hard putting yourself out there at first, but the more you do it, the more your comfort zone expands. You have to be kind enough to yourself to allow baby steps.
News flash, you will experience failure, whether you decide to take a risk or not. So if it’s inevitable anyway, you may as well plan on taking risks that guide your ship in the direction you want to go. Then when you fail, you will still be moving closer to your ideal life.
You have no idea how much you will benefit fro a failure until you get to the other side of it. The fear of fear is actually harder than the actual failure you will go through!

I was vaccinated with a Victrola needle! I’ve always been very verbal and very chatty!  I’ve gone through my entire life having a sense that I was never being listened to. I wasn’t feeling validated. It took me a long time to realize that this feeling was coming from me internally, and not from other people. When you grow up this way, you end up presenting yourself in a way that basically says “I’m not worth listening to.” The most important lesson you can learn is that there is work for you to do on yourself to step into a place where you can be heard and validated.


I was not a good listener at a point in my life. I wanted to show up as my best self, but I couldn’t because I wasn’t a good listener. I still have times where I am not a good listener. Years ago when I decided to do the work I needed to on myself, I went to a 12 step program. I learned to listen because I had no choice.


4 Things to Remember About Listening:


  1. It gives you a chance to practice patience.
  2. It teaches you about compassion.
  3. It gives you the ability to compromise.
  4. It will help you learn.

Today we are talking about the Grit habit. I love Angela Duckworth’s test to see how gritty you are! You can score from 1-5, and see where you rank on the scale.


I’ve realized over time that grit is sort of a learned behavior. I am an example of that. I have had to step up my grit over the last several years because I wanted to be happy. 


3 things come to mind to make you more gritty:


  1. The never give up habit - I have to tell myself this almost every day at some point. It’s a repeated habit that is now ingrained in me.
  2. Make friends - put yourself out there in your community. I have friends in unusual places and they enrich my life and make it more full.

Self-care is important.

In this series of FB live posts, I’m sharing some things that are coming up with me on a day to day basis. I had an experience with my local CVS pharmacy that resembled bullying. I’ve learned from being bullied that it is not ok, and I also determine that I need to take my power back anytime this happens and I will not be a victim. 


My advice is never to cry in front of men because we don’t want to be perceived as being weak. Many times we just need to feel heard, and when we are not being heard, our feelings get hurt.


Sometimes others have a different agenda than we do. You may not associate bullying with your finances. In a patriarchic society, that’s one of the main control mechanisms that is used against women. 


Listen to this episode as we talk about how money can be used against us in a power play. This is bullying and it’s not ok.

In this day and age, I think we all use technology way more than we ever imagined. You don’t have to do everything and you don’t have to let the technology drive you crazy! Today I wanted to give you 6 apps and tools you can use to make your life easier. Tech overwhelm can become a thing of the past. It’s more important to work on yourself and then use technology to support the aspects of your life that you are improving!


For productivity - To-Doist

For social media - I only focus on FB and Twitter and I use Meet Edgar

For Record Keeping - Less Accounting - a creative recommended it to me!

For Creativity - Canva and Word Swag 

For Concentration - Focus at Will 

For Scheduling - eventually I will be moving to an app besides my Google Calendar

In today’s episode, Deb shares her practice of doing walking meditations. The reason that Deb does a walking meditation is so that she can keep her practice of meditation. As busy as life is, Deb knows herself well enough that she must set up herself for success and make things easy to incorporate into her schedule, or else she will simply not do it.

Deb gives a shout out to her meditation coach, Joe Somodi of for helping her achieve her daily meditation practice.
Deb shares how she conducts her walking meditation, and
how she made this practice work for her.

Join your Financial Karma Coach, Deb Williams as she challenges herself to a daily FB live video, while muddling through tax season!

For the next couple of weeks, Deb is choosing a word each day to focus on and today's word is GRATITUDE!

So many people have praised how a daily gratitude practice can change your life and your outlook. Today Deb shares her gratitude and also shares a moment where she failed to follow through on her part of the bargain. Don't let your slip ups keep you from getting on board. Let's focus on gratitude today!

Deb Williams, CPA and Financial Coach, is on a mission to educate women about finance and money mindset. (Although she does love having the support of men as well!) Listen in today and find out how you can create a budget, easily and without stress and why it's so important for you to do that.


In the first part of today's show, Deb tells a touching story about her aging mom, who has Alzheimer's. It's a story demonstrating the use of an alternative approach, which, according to Deb, is essential in today's world. She explains that being prepared to allow for alternative ways of doing things demonstrates a growth mindset, rather than a fixed one, which is helpful for you to rewire your brain. She also expresses her view that the current President doesn't know the skills of diplomacy and inclusiveness, or of running a Federal Government- which is different to running a private company and until she knows that he's capable of pulling it together, she intends speaking out when necessary. She encourages you to speak out too but she reminds you to do this with facts and research- not as a reaction to an event.


In the second part of today's show, Deb talks about the ins and outs of budgeting and why it's essential for you to get the basics in line. She explains that it's important for you to plan things out, in order to feel a measure of control over your life now and in the future. Listen in today and discover the importance of having a solid budget and financial plan and find out how to go about the often daunting task of planning your budget, with ease.


Today, Deb discusses:


  • How you can gain financially through taking a fresh perspective when listening to people with different viewpoints.
  • The importance of knowing the difference between someone's viewpoint and the facts.
  • Why it's necessary to be clear about where you're going in life.
  • That preparing a budget is not complicated- it's do-able if you can add and subtract.
  • The idea of having a budget as part of a roadmap to your plans.
  • If you don't know where you are at now, you're not going to be able to plan your future.
  • Her own success, due to believing in herself, her talents and skills- and putting them to good use.
  • Setting aside the time to budget.
  • Rewarding yourself- a little trick to get things done.
  • Keeping your mindset positive while preparing your budget.

With decorations to hang, gifts to buy, parties to attend, and families to appease, life tends to take on a hectic pace as the year draws to a close.

In this episode, Deb tells the story of Kate and the very short friendship that has evolved between them, under the most unique circumstances. Money was in the entire story, Deb recalls, just as money is often involved in all of our life stories. 


Yet the money we experience in our lives – the money we earn, save, give, or take, really none of it has anything to do with our value as humans. All the money that you own could end up owning you instead.  Get all the earthly benefits that you can get from money, yet we need to detach ourselves from it so we can attend to our social relationships, and live a peaceful and prosperous life.


Deb’s guest is Beca Lewis, a Certified Financial Planner and author of 5 non-fiction books. She has also published short stories and a full-length fiction novel. All her books are found on Amazon. She writes the Shift Ezine, The Truth 4 Today email series, The Daily Nudge email series and the meditation series called Grace Notes. She has Master’s in Dance and ended up working for 20 years in a  large financial firm as a Certified Financial Planner. She is a mother, grandmother, and stepmother.


Show Notes


  • Deb and Beca met at a podcasting  event 
  • Share experiences with making shifts in your life
  • How to benefit from money yet be “detached” from it.
  • The Shift System works for anyone willing to choose and work it

Here’s a recap of my first season of Financial Karma Podcast.  Here are highlights of what I learned from launching my podcast this summer. Money is involved in everything we do. We should be prepared to make informed decisions and we can change ourselves with awareness, intention, and accountability. 


  • Episode  0:  I talk about how I started and why I’m a financial karma coach. I was interviewed by Lisa Vogt.


  • Episode 1:  Splash into Summer, with Nick Snapp. Nick discussed how he got into podcasting, what got him out of the corporate world, how he got into productivity, set routines, and bring up productivity to people. 


  • Episode 2:  A Delicious Summer with Alexandra Jamieson. She discusses how to do the body scan, listening to your body’s messages. What it means to observe and listen to every part of your body. She discusses the activities best for summer. 


  • Episode 3:  Women with Wanderlust with Melissa Jones. Melissa helps people to add polish to their personal and business branding with her design. She lives for travel, new challenges, and adventures and recommends traveling to everyone who can afford it. 


  • Episode 4:  Summer Tips for Mannafest Living with Sarah Mastriani-Levi.  She discusses naturopathic medicine and holistic bodywork. She has had extensive clinical practice and is a certified practitioner in the following fields: advanced reflexology, shiatsu, Swedish massage, manual lymph drainage, iridology, aromatherapy and herbology. She  also discusses stuff such as:  How we create a plastic life, It’s not what happens to you, but how you handle what happens to you,  How to find your “allowable rebellions”,  The biggest factor that contributes to Sarah’s success as a coach,  Why fear has never stopped or defined Sarah,  Why you need to be curious, Different challenges with the lifestyle choices we make,  How she intentionally makes time to connect with her children,  Why being outside should be a priority in your life,  How to make positive changes in your life to get what you need, Why dieting is something you should avoid,  and Why Sarah loves her work and how she helps people. 


  • Episode 5. Back to School (and more) with Bruce Langford. Mindfulness needs to go with every student’s return to school.  Does mindfulness apply to your finances? YES! Most of our money decisions—good or bad—are affected by our subconscious mind. Through his work as a mindfulness coach, Bruce helps his clients with the many problems of life with gentleness, candor, and respect. His passion is to help people become more calm, focused, and happy. 


  • Episode 6. The Girls of Summer with Amy Lopez.  Lying is wrong  and  can lead to all sorts of problems. There are so many negative character traits that we unknowingly cultivate when we choose to be untruthful. So, be the best YOU that you can be, and tell the truth.  Amy Lopez, works with 3rd-8th grade girls, helping build confidence in the next generation of women.  


  • Episode 7:  Change of Seasons and Meditation with Joe Somodi. Joe is a professional yoga teacher and certified life coach who helps people incorporate a daily practice of meditation into their lives.  He talks about attaching to the good and detaching from the bad. 


  • Episode 8:  End of Summer Wrap-Up with Deb Williams.   In this podcast, I recommend Camp Good Life Project to connect with people to enhance your business and your life. Having these types of connections allows you to have support and input from others in your business. Knowing you have connections that have your back, it is such a relief.   Having connected relationships is a wealth all its own. Focusing on this aspect of wealth first will allow you to manifest other types of wealth. There is more to wealth than the almighty dollar. Running your business from a spirited place will allow you to grow in innumerable ways. 


  • Episode 9:  Moving on to the Fall and Deb Williams Coaching Practice.  The  complexity of the brain, our neurons, and the coping strategies that we turn to is discussed in this episode.

  • Episode 10:  Winging It, Owning It and Coming Out Ahead.  How to merge your finances with your psyche is discussed here.  I’ve got my CPA and my Tax clients too, so there’s a lot going on. I’m a bit overwhelmed at the moment and you can see why!   Karma Tip: The word is conviction. It’s being sure what you say and believe is true, and that can even be true to you. My conviction is to work on my self-care and reducing my stress level. Having an open mind causes people to hear each other out, and it can actually cause you to change your convictions. Thinking this way can bring about a more peaceful world. 
Sep 23, 2016

Karma Tip: The word is conviction. It’s being sure what you say and believe is true, and that can even be true to you. My conviction is to work on my self-care and reducing my stress level. Having an open mind causes people to hear each other out, and it can actually cause you to change your convictions. Thinking this way can bring about a more peaceful world.
