In this episode of Happily Holistic, Amy speaks to Emma Mumford. Emma is not only a fellow author and podcaster, but also a coach and mentor for many women. Emma kicks off the podcast by telling us a bit about her “Spiritual Queen’s Badass”. She shares with us how the name came to life and what surprises she came with starting a podcast.
Formerly known as the “Coupon Queen” in the UK, Emma was guided towards making a book about having a healthy relationship with money. She saw a need in her spiritual community and in her own life to teach and learn about how to use money correctly. While writing the book, The Positively Wealthy Journal, Emma’s own relationship to wealth changed. She found herself craving connections and realizing that she poured too much into work and not enough into deep friendships.
As she finished the book and the release date got delayed due to a switch of publisher, Emma found herself in the perfect timing to help others. In a time where many are struggling with financials, Emma hopes to guide others to becoming fulfilled and stable.
Amy and Emma discuss the beautiful ways women get to express themselves and share their own experiences. Emma breaks down what the law of attraction is and goes through some law of attraction protips. She gives us the steps needed to work with the law of attraction.
