Interview w/ Leisa Peterson
According to National Women’s Law Center analysis, women’s labor force participation was 57.0 percent in February 2021. Before the pandemic, the last time women’s labor force participation had been this low was in 1988. Women lost more than 12.2 million jobs from February 2020 through April 2020, 11.3 million of which were in April alone, which means one month of the pandemic’s losses wiped out nearly an entire decade of women’s job gains since the Great Recession.
Given these statistics, is there a way for women to stop the feeling of powerlessness about money and shift out of the scarcity mindset?
Yes, there definitely is! Join us in this episode as we have an open conversation with Leisa Peterson, Business Strategist, Money Coach, Author of the book “The Mindful Millionaire”, of how women can transition from scarcity mindset to abundance, how to unlock their wealth and unleash their fullest potential to finally walk the path of true wealth.
