We’re committed to making this book study accessible and, as such, we’re offering it on a sliding scale. When you register, you’ll be able to self-select your level of contribution. You can use the following suggested tiers as a guide, aiming for a level that supports you to commit fully to this journey – a stretch, not a hardship.
$350 if you’re financially flourishing
$250 if you’re financially comfortable
$150 if you’re financially stretching
By paying at a higher level, you help us to offer scholarships to support a wider range of people.
Two reasons to pay less:
If the suggested sliding scale would be a hardship and you’d like to request request a scholarship rate
If you are a BIPOC person who, given the history of unjust systemic racism and colonialism, would like to name a lower price for this program
You can indicate these situations – and your desired rate – on our registration form.
Testimonials From our last Book Club
Energy of Money (2020)
“I truly felt like I made progress every time that I participated. It was an inspiration not only to read the book, but to practice the exercises, and doing so in community was of great support.”
“I’ve led 5+ book club groups like this and I’ve never been half as ON IT as you both were!”
“This group helped me to get out of my own damn way! I didn’t realize how PO) making things harder for myself than they needed to be.”
“One of the many reasons why I LOVE working with Alyssa and Rachel is because of their willingness to be open and celebrate people exactly where they are in their process. This facilitation allows me to be in tune with my level of effort I put in or chose not to put in and my deeper why. I appreciated the consistency of the others who showed up and felt the community grow. It was exactly what I came for and more!”
“They have a unique ability of meeting someone exactly where they are and celebrating each individual journey. This level of openness allowed me to stay compassionate with myself and take responsibility of the effort I was putting toward my growth. In the same breath, it gave me spaciousness to reflect on my deeper “why” if I was avoiding as well.”
Rachel & Alyssa
Who are the facilitators?When we met, through our training with the Academy for Coaching Excellence, we immediately bonded over our love of creativity, life-long learning and of being visionary educators and community members who show up in ways we are proud of. Throughout our friendship, we’ve supported each other to consistently show up to our lives with clarity, focus, ease and grace, sometimes daily expressing our commitments to each other to bring important qualities to our lives. We have coached each other and supported each other as we developed our coaching skills and entrepreneurship, both launching our businesses. We still meet weekly for budgeting sessions and business planning. We have supported coaching groups together and co-led the Energy of Money Book Club in 2020. We love to coach and we also love leading groups as facilitators coming from education backgrounds. We seek to guide this learning process through our educator lenses and to offer multiple approaches to study together as diverse learners. We are excited to offer this club on this book in particular because it has drastically transformed both of our lives and believe it has the power to transform yours as well.
