I’m in the final stages of writing a book called iPROSPER™ which is designed to guide the reader through the process of discovering their true prosperity — which I use to explain the combination of external wealth and inner abundance.
One of the stories I used to test my models and explore the connection between money and deeply rooted trust issues came from the experiences shared by author and speaker, Geneen Roth, in her books, Lost and Found, One Woman’s Journey of Losing Her Money and Finding Her Life, and, Hole in My Heart and the Cat Who Fixed it.
The following post is based on Geneen’s family experiences and how those played out with her money later in life — particularly focused towards Geneen’s experience of losing over $1,000,000 to Bernie Madoff in his infamous Ponzi scheme.
Geneen’s money experiences serve as a perfect case study of the 5th stage (throat chakra) in the 8 step maturation process I teach in my iPROSPER workshop.
Geneen Roth’s Money Story
Written by Leisa Peterson
When I first came across Geneen Roths’s book, Lost and Found, I was attracted to her ability to dive deep into the discussion of money shame. I studied the book, gave it to friends and found it to be a powerful way for clients to gain insight into what happens in our relationship with money. She was far more willing to examine this relationship than most people.
It all started when Geneen received a call notifiying her that her life savings of a million dollars had disappeared because of a man named Bernie Madoff. Bernie had been her financial advisor up to that moment and now she had about six thousand dollars in her checking account to live on. Geneen was a successful author and speaker. She had a large following of people who loved her books and teachings about how to improve our relationship with food after having battling with chronic food and weight loss challenges since her teen years. With this tragic turn of events, Geneen was forced to turn her attention towards her money story to see what had brought this about.
Geneen was one of 24,000 victims who got caught in a $60 billion dollar Ponzi scheme created by Bernie Madoff in 1960. Madoff was a well-respected financier who convinced thousands of investors to hand over their savings to his company, falsely promising consistent profits in return. A Ponzi scheme lures investors in by guaranteeing unusually high returns, the name originating from Charles Ponzi, who promised 50% returns on investments in only ninety days. Ponzi schemes are run by a central operator who uses the money from new, incoming investors to pay off the promised returns to older ones. This makes the operation seem profitable and legitimate, even though no actual profit is being made. Meanwhile, the person behind the scheme pockets the extra money or uses it to expand the operation. To avoid having too many investors reclaim their “profits,” Ponzi scheme operators encourage investors to stay in the game and earn more money. The “investing strategies” used are vague and/or secretive, which they claim is to protect their business. Then all they need to do is report to investors how much they are making periodically, without actually providing real returns.
Overnight she went from feeling like everything was take care of when it came to her and her husband’s retirement to feeling devastated. As she began to look into how she had gotten into a position where she could have trusted someone who had provided many signs that something wasn’t quite right, she began to see how her journey with food wasn’t all that different than with money.
This wasn’t the first time Geneen had been swindled out of her money. Part of the reason she was encouraged to work with Bernie was that her last financial advisor, who also happened to be a close friend, had embezzled over $300,000 from her and her husband. As a result of their going through that loss, her accountant suggested that working with Bernie would be a far safer way for them to invest their money. He had worked with Bernie for over twenty years, was receiving “high returns on his investments,” and considered it a very safe bet. Geneen and her husband then began moving their money slowly over to Bernie’s company.
Within a few years, all of their savings had been moved over. Strangely enough, prior to the collapse of the company, Geneen and her husband requested taking their money out of the funds it was invested in. In response, they were told that they’d have to wait six months. By then, the Ponzi scheme had blown up.
Grappling with the fact that not only had they lost a sizable chunk of money with their previous advisor, they had also now lost everything, proved deeply traumatic. Moving through waves of shock, terror, grief and shame, Geneen did everything she could to hold herself together, including calling her spiritual teacher of fourteen years, Jeanne, to tell her the news. Upon hearing what had happened, Jeanne told her that nothing of any value had been lost. This was not what Geneen wanted to hear at the moment; yet the confirmation would stay with her for many years and help her begin the process of moving through her trauma.
Talking to Jeanne and many of her other friends allowed Geneen to tap into all the work she had done around her challenges with food. This helped her to believe that if she got through those hurdles, she’d most likely have the strength to get through this, too.
Growing up in a home where her father had been ruthless about doing whatever he needed to do to build wealth, Geneen did whatever she could to avoid thinking about money. Like many baby boomers, she found herself protesting the Vietnam War during her college years, rejecting consumerism, and even living in India so she could spend time “finding herself” and learning how to meditate. A passionate writer from a young age, Geneen supported herself with odd jobs as a maid, nanny, and dishwasher so that she would have plenty of time to write.
Eventually she turned the focus of her attention towards weight management and helping compulsive eaters like herself explore their relationship with food. Bringing this rarely discussed topic out into the open created a powerful platform for Geneen’s work and by the time her fourth book was published, she sold enough copies to spend two weeks on the New York Times best seller list. The first check she received for this windfall was $106,000. To her. this seemed like Monopoly money. She had absolutely no idea of what to do with it. The only thing she did know was that now she was one of those people who had money, like her father, whom she didn’t like and didn’t trust.
Rather than make a lot of money of greatest importance to Geneen was figuring out the meaning of life. Observing her father do whatever it took to get money and then treat it as a tool of manipulation created painful feelings that caused her to avoid the management of her money as much as possible. As time passed, the more money she earned through her books and workshops, the more she poured herself into understanding her addictive relationship to food and using it to transform her life. She used her books and passion to avoid any pain that came up around money. Explaining how she had spent years meditating and understanding spiritual concepts and yet felt deep shame when it came to her habits around shopping and spending money, she said that she reached the conclusion, “I’m not going to understand everything in my life. I’ve dealt with my relationship with food. That’s enough. Only God is perfect.”
When she did try to focus on managing her money better, Geneen would find herself sitting in a puddle of frenzied anxiety. A resolution to balance her checkbook would lead to countless hours of “tallying the monthly fees,” “rifling through statements,” and “going back and forth with the bank,” only to find herself needing to “watch soap operas for thirty-six hours, take a yearlong bath, and get colonic irrigation,“ which she admitted was an exaggeration but only a slight one.
To better understand some of the reasons behind why Geneen felt so bad about money, we turn our attention to the fact that Geneen’s father had faced a great deal of trauma early in life. When Geneen’s father was young, he lost over forty members of his family in Auschwitz. It was through this horrific experience that he decided that God had abandoned “us” and for that reason, morality didn’t really matter. Instead, it was about every man for himself. One way he lived that promise was to accumulate wealth without regard to how he did it. By the time Geneen was in her teens, she knew her father believed that if you had to give up integrity, self-respect, compassion, and honesty to get money, so be it. And since she wanted absolutely nothing to do with his attitudes toward money, she decided it was best to avoid thinking about money altogether.
Although she doesn’t share much about her mother’s relationship with money, she does indicate that her mother passed a few significant beliefs down to her. One in particular had to do with money and the things you get from it being a source of happiness. Many of Geneen’s happiest memories arose from shopping excursions with her parents where she’d receive lots of attention and feel love in those moments. In this case, money represented the attention Geneen desperately sought; so when her parents were spending money on her, it meant she was loved.
Another belief involved the idea that money was the domain of men. Even though her mother had her own credit cards, she would have to go to her husband to beg, plead, and suck up to get the money to pay the bills. It didn’t help that her father, in Geneen’s words, saw women “as broads, objects and carriers of breasts and asses,” and treated them accordingly. As a result of witnessing her parents’ relationship and money patterns, Geneen learned that money was something to be surrendered into the hands of “intimidating and powerful-appearing” men regardless of how they treat you.
One of her father’s favorite games to play with the family was a version of fifty-two card pickup, but in his case, he would burst into their home at the end of the day and pull out his money clip with a thick wad of bills folded into it. He’d then proceed to throw all of it into the air shouting, “Go! You get to keep whatever you grab.” She, her brother, and her mother would do whatever it took to get as many bills as they could, even if they had to hurt one another to get it. When the dust settled and the family was counting how much they’d collected, he’d remark, “Great game, isn’t it?” In retrospect, Geneen recalls how no one thought it was unusual that they had to crawl on their knees while he towered above them laughing and how that contributed to her feelings that “men with money have unlimited power over those who don’t.”
Later, after her parents divorced, her father would remarry several times. Near the end of his life when he was dying from stage-four lymphoma, her brother asked to see a copy of his will because he did not believe he would honor his promise that the $3,000,000 he’d recently made in the stock market would be divided up 50-25-25 among their stepmother, her brother and her. While Geneen never doubted her father, Howard was adamant. When they saw the last will and testament that reflected what he said was true, they felt relief. That was until they found out, after his death, that all of the money in question was in a retirement account that was not included in the will and listed their stepmother as the sole beneficiary.
This was to be the second time that Geneen would feel swindled out of money that she felt was rightfully hers. When she learned of his dishonesty and insensitivity, she tried to defend him, saying he must not have known the intricacies of estate laws in New York until her brother reminded her that their father was an expert in probate law who knew exactly what he had done. Her desire to cover up what had happened later revealed how badly she had wanted to be adored and lavished upon more than she wanted to see her father for who he really was. Eventually she had no choice but to wake up to the fact that being her efforts to love her father had caused her to diminish herself in the process.
In spending so much of her life pretending that she didn’t care about money, Geneen had been living a hoax against herself which got carried into her experiences with losing her money. Fraud is wrongful deception intended to result in financial or personal gain. With Geneen, the deception came through pretending she didn’t care about money so that she could feel good about herself. By believing that money is sleazy, shameful, shallow, unspiritual, and manipulative, she felt it was better to ignore it than to face her fears. These beliefs required her to give up responsibility to others so that her self-image of being a kind, compassionate and loving human being could remain intact. This appeared to be the perfect way to disconnect herself from those morally bankrupt people who had money. What she found out through the journey of writing her book, however, was that it only connected her more closely.
Going through the process of examining her relationship with money led her to notice that until she stopped blaming herself and others for her money troubles, she was incapable of learning what she needed to learn. It took losing it all to Madoff’s Ponzi scheme to wake her up to the fact that money was something that she needed to take responsibility for.
How Geneen’s Money Story relates to the Throat Chakra
Because we live within an interconnected universe, every improvement we make in our personal world improves the world around us. This is what happens when we tap into the self-expression that arises through the fifth chakra. As we move into the fifth chakra, our continued examination of our relationship with money brings forth issues that have not been dealt with in the first four chakras.
Here we are exploring creative expression, communication skills, and trust at a higher level of awareness. In the lower four chakras, we were primarily concerned about breaking free of the fear that consumed us to the point where we could not get out of our own way. Now, with the throat chakra, we’re not so much stuck inside of mundane and restrictive fears as we are confronted by any and all lack of alignment inside of our money story.
It is here that everything comes together and makes sense so that we feel integrated at all levels of our being. No longer can we just tell ourselves that everything is going to be okay as long as we’re financially secure. Instead, we’re realizing that we must connect together all the misaligned pieces of our money story so that it fits together like a puzzle. Like a puzzle, nothing can be left out and everything needs to fit together perfectly. If any anything has been left outside of the picture up until now, it is here that we discover our ability to ask questions, engage in communication, and freely speak our “real” truths.
When I began to write about the fifth chakra, I could not stop thinking about Geneen’s book, Lost and Found. I found Geneen’s experiences particularly poignant because she had spent so many years delving into her relationship with food. This gave her a depth of understanding of herself that few people have, as well as a guide into navigating the treacherous waters of one’s money story. I can think of no other book that provides readers with such firsthand, intimate insight into the shame, guilt, and remorse she felt as a result of her experiences with money.
Located in your throat, the throat chakra, Vissudha (purification), directs your sense of honesty towards yourself. If your throat chakra is healthy and in balance, you will trust yourself, others and be able to fully express your authentic selves in the presence of others. The more you truly believe what you say and think, the fewer issues surrounding self-denial and dishonesty will appear in your life. By being mindful of who you are and of how you feel in all ways and in all situations, you gain the ability to honestly express yourself no matter what conditions appear before you.
Rising upwards, the energy that started at the root and moved through the sacral, solar plexus and heart now becomes more abstract and broader in scope. The energy of this chakra naturally brings forth truth and fallacy so that it can be fully understood, healed, and integrated. It draws together the scattered fragments of beliefs that no longer serve you nor the world at large. Every thought, feeling, and expression becomes symbolic of a greater purpose and rhythm.
Within the fifth chakra energies, our attention moves from the physical to the ethereal. Our life force is similar to a stream of water moving through a canyon that becomes bigger over time. Anything that was hidden from sight now becomes visible after facing the repetitive and growing current of water streaming through it.
As we connect into this life force, we feel our own sense of awareness undulating, twisting, and eventually expanding beyond what we thought was possible. Details that in the past brought up fear, guilt, and shame are no longer able to stay hidden even if we try to keep them under wraps. This is exactly what occurred for Geneen upon finding out that all of her money was gone. The secrets she had hidden, even from herself, were no longer willing to lie dormant. Instead, a highly public experience with fraud manifested so that she felt like she had no choice but to look inside of her money story.
Since Geneen was already quite adept at self-expression, turning her attention towards her money story and writing a book about her experiences came more easily than for most. The flow of energy had already been awakened as a result of her work around compulsive eating, which made it easier for her to dig deeply into the beliefs she had created after watching her parents deal with money as she was growing up. Her many years of prior experiences with self-understanding allowed her to quickly identify the areas of trauma and abuse that had not yet been fully resolved and were therefore blocking her ability to fully accept all parts of herself.
Self-acceptance gives you the freedom for fearless expression, which is what many of us crave at our most intimate levels of being. When we see others expressing themselves with self-acceptance, we feel a sense of confidence towards whatever they are doing which, in turn, causes us to feel it inside of ourselves. Yet the same dynamic applies in the opposite direction. When we witness others rejecting themselves and holding back in their own expression, we do the same. Self-expression is immediate and shows, by example, what is possible for everyone. It awakens the currency of limitless creativity and possibility and reveals what it means to speak things into life. It’s the energy beneath creativity. When the fifth chakra is in balance, we gain the ability to create positive change in every aspect of life.
As you open your 5th chakra, you find yourself trusting more and increasingly accepting your originality in whatever form of expression that may take. While not everyone is an artist, everyone has the potential to be creative in expression. We are each unique in our expressive nature. This chakra is about awakening to your authentic self—finding and then speaking your truth, in addition to hearing the truths of others. It is dominated by higher mental faculties that allow detachment, observation, and synthesizing your views on life.
Because this is a higher level mind, how this chakra connects to money is a higher level experience. It ties into feeling confident that you can speak your truth and be your authentic self regardless of the outcome to you financially, socially, emotionally, and so on. Here your individual intelligence is merging with the collective mind. Balancing this chakra allows us to see beyond the mundane expressions of money, seeing it as a tool that appears as a reward for speaking your truth but is never the reason for speaking your truth. Money is a lovely benefit for something far more important: the ability to be authentically “you” in all ways, on all days. You release the need to receive permission to be who you are fully and authentically.
Chakra Excess and Deficiency
It is fairly easy to identify imbalances within the throat chakra when it comes to money. Anything other than feeling like you are in the highest manifestation of a free, independent mind that knows itself and is not threatened by asking questions of others reveals that you are working through imbalances.
An excessive throat chakra is noticeable if we find ourselves talking a lot when meeting with advisors so that we can gain a feeling of being in control. An example of this would be a person who goes to meet with an advisor and does all that talking. Rather than asking questions and waiting for replies, the person will talk incessantly and dominate the conversation. This is done to alleviate the anxiety a client feels about money conversation. They may talk at length and in great detail about something that happened in the recent past that has nothing to do with their finances. Alternatively, if their talk has to do with money, they may avoid saving anything about how they are feeling.
Geneen does not mention ever meeting with Bernie or others in his company nor talking about what was and was not discussed. This lack of communication is often indicative of a deficient throat chakra where you feel uncertain and self-doubting when it comes to interviewing, meeting with, and asking your advisors and other financial professionals to elucidate clearly how they are helping you.
The more raw and uncomfortable the feelings one has about money and finances, the harder it is to communicate and express your concerns. There may also be the fear of consequences arising by asking questions and navigating the answers that you do not feel comfortable exploring. Overall, a deficient throat chakra prevents a person from honestly and candidly managing the professionals they’ve hired to help them. Instead, the tendency is to blindly rely on their expertise and hope for the best.
In Geneen’s case, having a deficient throat chakra kept her from not only looking inside her relationship with money but also from finding trustworthy advisors who could help her better manage her money. She observes, “I felt so out of control (with food) … which is basically how I felt about the money I made … I’ve crawled back from the verge of suicide, spent countless hours in therapy, spiritual practice, and at my desk following the relationship with food … And yet the energy I received in exchange for that passion—aka money—I surrendered to people whose values I didn’t share and investments I didn’t understand.”
By exploring her money story, Geneen came to see how much she was undervaluing herself and her efforts because of how charged money had become. She began to notice how something that was created to make our lives easier had become something that “enslaves us, controls us, determines our worth or lack of it.” When we can remember that money is just something we’ve created and that what matters most is learning the truth about our situations, we can gain freedom and the ability to make better decisions about our money in the future.
I have since heard Geneen speak about some of the realizations that she gained by going through the Bernie Madoff scandal. She was able to see that abundance followed when she was able to appreciate what she did have. By dropping her scarcity mentality, she was able to find the answers to her own value and prosperity within.
During an interview with Farnoosh Torabi on her “So Money Podcast” in the spring of 2018, I could tell Geneen had come a long way in her journey with money. She discussed the stories she had been telling herself, including a “whole story about what I was going to look like as a homeless person, alone and without money from having lost that money.” Through her process, however, she had come full circle “to the point now where I don‘t believe my thoughts—or if I start believing the story I’m telling myself about a situation, I realize very soon afterwards that that’s different that the situation and that I’m reacting to the story, not the situation.”
Geneen’s experiences, combined with the 1,000’s of people I’ve worked with over the years, helped me to confirm just how common it is to not trust ourselves deeply, especially when it comes to money. There are many powerful and meaningful ways to improve how we feel about money and our relationship with it. This is my lifelong passion and area of speciality and I am happy to answer questions that you post in the comments below.
I‘ve written my upcoming iPROSPER book and created my iPROSPER workshops and retreats to help people come to terms with their money stories in a new way so that they can learn who they really are and create a life based on what they most want.
Unfortunately, many times our experiences with money caused us to, in some way, doubt ourselves and the truth about who we really are. Absent of realizing our own truths, money challenges can easily chip away at confidence and self-esteem which is all the more reason why everyone can benefit by going through the iPROSPER process for themselves.
Please leave your comments and questions below – I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Here are some of the reviews shared in my iPROSPER workshop offered in fall of 2018:
“I would first like to say that I have been on my spiritual journey for about 10 years and although I have made some tremendous progress along the way I have never been able to break free of my past until now. I am beyond grateful, I am amazed! I went through the iPROSPER process realizing that I had to better understand my relationship with money and why it has been the cause of so much pain and suffering throughout my life. What I came to realize was that my relationship with money was deeply rooted and a result of my childhood trauma. These experiences have affected me throughout my life and I now understand that in order to heal I must first release any attachment to them. Going forward I plan to take better care of myself both physically and emotionally but more importantly I will no longer be seeing through the lens of self judgment, self pity and sorrow. I will practice more forgiveness, gratitude and love towards my self. I now have the tools and knowledge to break free and reclaim my power. I truly believe that anyone that reads this book and applies themselves to the process will gain a clarity and perspective on their life that they never had before and realize that their relationship with money was only a byproduct of something so much deeper and more profound. I highly recommend iPROSPER to anyone that is ready to break free of whatever bondage their past has kept them in. I cannot express in words alone how grateful I am for this life changing experience.” ~Tullio
“Leisa Peterson’s iPROSPER™ program brought me financial healing in ways I could not have anticipated. She taught me to let things happen instead of getting stuck in a pattern of hustling nonstop for work that might not even fill me up. Now I feel safe trusting my gut. It even paid off when I landed a dream project — I hadn’t even pitched — in the middle of the program. I recommend iPROSPER™ for anyone who has an intuition that they might need some guidance toward abundance.” ~Jen
“I am transformed! These 8 weeks completely changed the way I think about money.
Leisa takes you deep into your money shadows, to heal, but when you come out on the other end she also provides you with concrete tools and habits to create financial freedom. As an entrepreneur I’m no longer attached to the outcome of my new program – I just know. That is true abundance.” ~Sarah
“Before iPROSPER, I had no idea that I had a “money story” that was affecting my life in a profound way, keeping me stuck in old patterns and beliefs and behaviors. Little by little, Leisa and the iPROSPER process helped me to chip away at those old beliefs to reveal the truth of who I am and how I can live up to my highest potential. I am eternally grateful to Leisa for helping me to write a new story and teaching me the tools I needed to make my financial dreams a reality.” ~Leslie
“I’ve been focused on changing my money mindset and building wealth for a decade now, and have done a pretty good job. Still, I experienced significant breakthroughs during iPROSPER that I’m not sure I would have arrived at without Leisa’s guidance. The book helped me to see how I was playing small with my approach to making money, and how to expand my world and do more without necessarily spending more time on money management or increasing my earnings. Such a freeing and empowering experience!!” ~Simone
“In her transformative iPROSPER book, Leisa Petersen shares her unique gift of combining rock-solid financial expertise with spiritual concepts – creating a double helix of empowerment that reprograms the mind, body, and spirit in relation to aligning one’s life purpose with prosperity.
This activates each participant’s ability – after years of struggle, confusion, and frustration – to finally, finally “get it” and take action that makes a positive impact on others and attracts the abundance that had been so elusive for so long.
Leisa’s exercises prompt tearful “aha” moments about information that we’ve seen and heard before, but never understood until she explained it so clearly. Her presentation of the chakra system in the context of business is absolutely brilliant, and she is doing the world a service by teaching this ancient practice to modern-day, ambitious entrepreneurs.
So, if you’re looking for help to heal your money issues and finally declare, “I prosper!” then this book can help you go for the gold and win it!” ~Elizabeth
“Leisa Peterson is a visionary and combines the hard facts of money with the gentle love of spirit in a way that can only be experience through her words, spoken or written. Leisa’s revolutionary approach begins with looking at our money stories. These stories keep us stuck and our relationship to money can’t improve until our relationship with our stories improves. My biggest ah-ha was the connection between money and weight. As I dug deeper into my money story, an awareness of emerged that I had never seen before. I realized that if I am going to transform my money story into something positive, I am also going to heal my weight story. Both my money and weight have swung between two extremes — a surplus of money and a healthy weight OR being $20,000 in debt and 20 pounds overweight. The ah-ha was that my weight didn’t swing from anorexia to obesity, just as my money didn’t swing from millions to bankruptcy. I have been operating my whole life completely unbalanced in weight and money. And my discovery was that it wasn’t about the money. It was about myself self-worth. I discovered that I am very comfortable managing money, and this was quite a confidence boost. I must do work on my story of attracting money, I do know that when money comes to me, I will know how to handle it and invest it.” ~Catherine
“I had been avoiding managing my money and felt strong resistance to making any changes in my life out of fear of dealing with things I did not understand. The program has been truly transformational because I realised and released a number of patterns that I was not aware of and that were holding me back and now I feel so much more empowered and excited to start anew. The program is so much more beyond money. Money is the proxy that the patterns manifest. For me, the realisations came at very personal level about who I am and how I have been hiding myself because of fear. Thank you.” ~Christina
“I joined iPROSPER to discover and let go of blocks of how money works and shows up (or doesn’t) in my life. Leisa is gifted at facilitating a process that uncovers our limiting beliefs that drive our habits and behaviors, and illuminating all that is possible in our lives. For me one of the biggest gifts of the course is being able to let go of the myth that money only comes through really, really hard work. No surprise that when we live this way, our relationships with people mirror our beliefs with money. The other a-ha was we only really feel abundant when we direct our money in alignment with our most true values and desires. This requires knowing what we really want, what is most important to us, and staying true to that with money. Anyone who desires to feel at peace with and in control of their finances will benefit from this book and course, whether they’re deep in debt or have millions in the bank.” ~Deb
“iPROSPER has benefited me personally, but also has given me the tools so others may benefit from what I have to offer. I have a different perspective and viewing life through a different lens. I have learned that I am loving, caring, kind and generous person and have hidden behind my armor in fear of being taken advantage of or being hurt. I’m realizing that I am okay with me because it is what makes me special and empowered in the world. If others are unable or unwilling to accept the gift that I have to offer that has nothing to do with me. I accept them where they are, but not deny myself the joy that I am. It allows me to have peace and serenity in my own skin. Since reading the book and taking the course, I have been experiencing life from a different viewpoint over the past year. I have really enjoyed this process and journey. ~Brian
“The iPROSPER approach that Leisa has developed is a wonderful blend of inspiration, wisdom and practical steps. It is a powerful way to understand and accept your money story ~ and learn from the stories of others ~ so that you can make significant changes to your own money story and move towards greater abundance from a place of true alignment. Leisa is a passionate teacher blending her financial experience with spiritual wisdom, and this unique combination provides deep learning that traditional finance courses miss. The iPROSPER process is not easy work, but it is heart work and Leisa is a powerful guide leading the process from a place of deep trust, authenticity and love.” ~Debra
