Rising up in your financial life with Rachel Symone Gilliam
Rachel Symone Gilliam joins us for this week’s episode of Girlfunds, a female financial empowerment podcast where we intertwine finance and friendship. During the interview, Rachel not only shares how she sets goals in her own life, but how she empowers others to achieve their goals.
From how she helps friends negotiate their salaries to how she bought her first home, Rachel gives actionable tips and advice on how she lives a life with purpose. And most notably, she shares all these stories with well being and mental health at the center, diving into what you need in your own life in order to be successful.
For some background, Rachel Symone Gilliam is a speaker, encourager, host, digital marketer and more. She created a space on the internet to empower others to own their grief and their stories. As an advocate for mental, physical, and spiritual health, Rachel shares her journey and lessons learned along the way to help people live their best life on purpose.
Girlfunds takeaway tip from Rachel Symone Gilliam:
#1 As an enneagram 3, what parts of being an enneagram 3 do you think could be taken out of the enneagram world and really just be helpful, intentional tips that others could benefit from when it comes to setting intentions for themselves in life?
Rachel Symone Gilliam: You need to realize what you need to be successful every day. I’ve kind of coined this as my core four. And it’ll change because I can have a core four for the day, I can have a core four for the week, or for the year or whatever time frame. But, what are the four things that you need to be successful for that period of time? Today, for me, because I’m having such a crazy work week, that is water, sleep, movement and supplements. I know I’ve had a successful day when I’ve checked off all of those boxes. Nothing else matters to me because that’s what I need to be successful. But for you, it could be your core four for your finances. What are the four things you need to avoid in order to hit your goals? Or what are the four things that you need to be focusing on at work in order to hit your sales target or your marketing goals? I’ve adopted this core four a couple months ago, and it’s been really great to live by.
