Interview with Julie Kern: Bridge Financial Strategies
Embracing Financial Wellness from Any Starting Point

Has money and finance always been a struggle for you? Does it seem confusing and overwhelming? It's time to crack open this conversation and open up to a brand new view about what money means in our lives. This podcast episode is about creating good vibes in our financial lives. 

We get into what money CAN do for you. It's an invitation to get curious, become empowered and take the first steps to letting money be a tool to create a life you love. 

Money is not evil, dirty, inappropriate, impolite or any of the above. 

Money is energy and it's got amazing vibes to it if you learn to channel it the RIGHT way. 

Julie Kern of Bridge Financial Strategies and Bridge Divorce Strategies and her team, help women and families create an individualized  financial plan. No matter what their starting point or understanding of what financial strategies even are, Julie can help.


She is a CPA, a Certified Financial Planner AND a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst.


All of these credentials alone are impressive, but combined they make her a total superhero in the financial world for women trying to find answers and to create a road map to living their dream life.


In the interview, we talk about Julie’s own personal struggles with money and how she rebuilt her life as a young single mom working as a manager at McDonalds. Through a powerful awakening moment,  Julie has since found financial freedom and been called to help guide other women to release their own hang ups about money, open the door to possibility and shine a light on the mystery that finance holds for so many of us.


In the interview, we talk about:

  •  Ways to start your financial wellness journey

  • The best books to read

  • The 5 pillars of personal finance you need to know about

  • Why asking questions about finance is a GOOD thing

  • How our culture has created myths around money and wealth

  • What exactly is a divorce financial analyst and why they are a good partner with your lawyer

  • What it means to be wealthy in your soul

  • Why money is just energy and is a good thing

  • How money is a key to freedom and living the life that you want to live

  • Why becoming open about our own struggles with money  is actually our path to healing and even helps others


I loved our conversation and learned so much about what’s financially possible.  Julie really helped empower me with my own financial journey and I hope you learn something new too.


We as women need to step up and empower ourselves. Finance is not nearly as boring, scary or complicated as we might think it is. 


Once you decide to demystify money and embrace it as your tool to change everything in your life, you can have more freedom, more peace of mind, more of what you love to buy and do in your life.

All by understanding your money better.


Basically giving you a tool to uplevel your experience in this life.


I really hope you take this as a beautiful invitation to explore your own financial well being. Take it from me, anytime is a great time to start.  

As always, Hope you enjoy the show.
