Money Manifestation Meditation: Relate with Jess Ruhfus

Relate and Meditate

In this episode, we spoke to tech entrepreneur and professional hand model Jess Ruhfus - founder of collaboration app Collabosaurus - about the touchy, private topic of money. We spoke about her own relationship with money, the social pressure of committing to a set menu and covered pretty much all of our key money memories.I wanted to put this episode out this week as I feel like money conversations amongst my friends and partner recently have just been cracked open, it’s been being talked about a lot as we all struggle through freelance life through another lockdown here in Sydney. It’s been funny to listen back to this episode as it was recorded right at the start of the year and l’ve spent the past few months doing a lot of work and education around money mindset over the past few months and identify what my relationship with it is. For Jess, it was a resistance to pay herself what she deserves as a CEO and for me it’s this fear that the money I have is going to be taken away from me. I do also want to acknowledge that although Jess and I both speak from such privileged positions which we’re so grateful to be in - I hope that the meditation we have crafted feels relatable and relevant to everyone listening.If the struggle is fkin' REAL for you at the moment - have a listen and let's raise those positive money vibes together.Resources that have helped me exponentially this year with money mindset are:Natalia Benson @nataliabenson + her Magical Money Manifestation Workshops/general IG contributions to the worldThink and Grow Rich by Napoleon HillOvercoming Underearning by Barbara Stanny (looks very old school but is very, very good)How to Start a Side Hustle by Kaylene Langford ---Follow us on IG - @relateandmeditateFollow Daisy Clementine on IG - @daisyclementinaFollow Rachel Crethar on IG - @rachelcretharFollow Jess Ruhfus on IG - @jessruhfus / @collabosaurusPlease share this episode with anyone you feel it may benefit,  give us a rating on Apple Podcasts and subscribe to be kept in the loop with new episode releases. Please also drop us a review with what you need a meditation for and we'll create an episode in your honour - promise.We hope you enjoy the episode. Loads of love!
