Sandra Grahame: Reconnect to Purpose

Redefining Wealth with Patrice Washington

Do you ever feel like you’re missing something? Like you’re doing everything right, but for some reason it’s not connecting? As exciting as it is to do the thing you’re called to do, it’s also very common to chase purpose and still feel like there’s a missing piece that connects the call on your life with the actions behind your work. If you feel a void in your life or yearn for a connection, the power of community can change that for you and push you deeper into purpose.   As we continue highlighting some of the amazing women from my signature program, Purpose To Platform, today’s guest transformed her already successful brand into a business by reconnecting to purpose and surrounding herself with women who are doing the same.  Sandra Grahame is a money and lifestyle expert who's own financial success story has been featured on Oprah, The Today Show, CNN, The New York Times and so much more. She is a 2X author, a keynote speaker, and most importantly a Smart Cookie. Smart Cookies is an online education platform and community for ambitious women ready to bring their richest goals to life. As co-founder and CEO, Sandra has helped thousands of women from across the world learn to use money as a tool to create the life they really want.
