012 Money for teachers: Family money stories and their impact on us

Have you ever wondered if your upbringing had an impact on your money mindset today? Karen Gibb of Mind Marvels joins us in this episode to discuss a wide range of topics.

We chat about money for teachers, positivity for teachers, why wealth is not a dirty word and how it can improve your life beyond measure. From how background and childhood influences have impacted the way we deal with money and our feelings about money, our passion for teaching to our female inspirations, this is definitely an episode you don’t want to miss!

We’ll also get to know more about Karen’s journey from being a full-time teacher to running Mind Marvels that focuses on working with young people on their mental health and emotional well-being.
