Hope, Healing and WellBeing – True Treasures: Giving, Saving and Spending According to Your Calling with Rachel McDonough, CFP

Rachel McDonough combines her insight from years living among some of the world’s poorest people in Kenya, with her professional experience as a Certified Financial Planner™ to offer a unique and refreshing perspective on money. As founder and owner of Make Your Money Count, LLC, she believes that the best way she can help her clients be truly successful is by helping them make financial decisions that reflect their personal values. She discusses this belief in her book, True Treasures: Giving, Saving and Spending According to Your Calling.

Rachel believes we can use our financial situation to live out our calling and passions. Her values and faith-based approach to financial planning is evident by her commitment to giving first, then saving and spending money, a process she also recommends to her clients. Our values and beliefs determine our priorities, which then should guide where we put our resources, including our time and money. Rachel stresses the importance of overcoming anxiety and fear, so we can make empowered financial decisions. She also shares ways to increase contentment in our lives, especially in terms of how it affects our financial situation.
