Is making more money one of your goals? Or is it more so a tool to achieve your goals? Do you have “enough”? Is there even such a thing as “having enough”? How does your financial life align with your values? Challenge your existing notions about money and finances by seeing yourself and systems of power clearly. Recognize the impact of systemic oppression on the financial stability of marginalized communities. Financial inclusion means that people, societies, and economies thrive when everyone has access to basic financial literacy and services. Understand your authentic needs and wants to determine your financial position, financial goals, and what role your finances play in your life.
