Do you yearn for financial freedom and feel like it’s out of your reach?
And are you missing out on extraordinary experiences — travel, adventure, philanthropy, a
lifestyle of meaning + freedom — because the numbers in your checking account are forcing
you to play small?
When you glance at your bank statements, how do you feel?
Powerful, independent + profoundly grateful?
Or bewildered, ashamed + frightened about the future?
Are you living from paycheck to paycheck? Surviving on credit + loans?
Terrified that your business won’t ever take off — that you’re wasting your time, money + energy, for nothing?
It’s time to wake up + create a conscious relationship with money.
It’s time to lift the veil of shame, face our worst-case scenarios, walk through the fire —
and replace fear + denial with fierce independence.
Quite frankly — we can’t afford to wait any longer.
Smart Women Love Money Online Master Class
Smart Women Love Money is a 6-week, online, live master class with Master Coach Sherold Barr.
Each week you’ll dive into a new module of the online classroom to investigate your hardwired beliefs about income, value + worth — with your blinders off.
You will examine why you spend + how you spend — with a searingly bright flashlight.
The modules are loaded with powerful videos, written exercises, and interviews to give you the training + tools to transform your relationship with money from one of dread, uncertainty + denial to one of deep knowing, self-reliance + abundance.
You’ll also get focus time with Sherold as she uses the transformative process of inquiry – The Work of Byron Katie – to help you question your limiting beliefs around money + uncover what’s holding you back from manifesting the financial life you desire.
You’ll get the skills, confidence, and power to:
- Break through a lifetime of limiting beliefs, judgment, + shame so you can live the joyful life you are meant to live.
- Learn powerful ways to manifest money into your life.
- Get crystal clear about your dreams and goals using a vision board or Pinterest.
- Tell a new money story – one that makes you feel happy, confident, and alive.
“I now understand that we all have a money story, and until we understand it, we will not gain control over our money.”
“After taking Smart Women Love Money, I am thinking much more clearly about my relationship to money. I can link my money story directly to my worries about money.
Working with Sherold, I also received suggestions about concrete steps I could take to regain control of my financial life: working with my CPA to analyze my asset/debt ratios; working with my bank to refinance, and setting up all my accounts online.”

“The support was great. We (women) usually feel ashamed to talk about money because it’s this taboo subject.
I’d recommend [Smart Women Love Money] to anyone who is ready to conquer their money fears in a super supportive setting with a very patient and loving teacher who walks her talk.”

MY MONEY STORY ::
a note from SWLM creator, Sherold Barr
I have worked since I was 16 years old. To me, money represents INDEPENDENCE and FREEDOM. In my early years as an adult, I never had more than I earned, and I worked hard for everything I had. I’ve had careers ranging from real estate agent, consultant, marketing director, and public relations director and hospital spokesperson. Then I went through a divorce and came to understand that women and children are the ones who suffer most from divorce – financially speaking. At that time, I knew that it was up to me to earn the money that would take me and my three-year-old son where I wanted to go.
And then eight years later I remarried, and he happened to be a physician. People actually asked me if I was going to retire and sit around on the couch eating Bon Bons. My husband’s accountant told me that it “wouldn’t be worth it to work” because I would be heavily taxed due to my husband’s income. I chose to ignore his well-intentioned “advice,” and started a company that brought in $457,000 in my fourth year of business.
I’d never dreamed of starting a business, and the freedom I found was nothing short of remarkable. I could call the shots, have my dogs as coworkers, and be there every day when my son came home from school. And now I want to share with you what I have learned about money to help you find the emotional and financial freedom you desire in your life
When I changed careers in 2007 and was in a training with Martha Beck, all of the women in my life coach training class had money issues except me. Martha asked me to design and teach them a class, which I did. I loved creating the class and the best part was that my peers loved it and had transformations. I realized I could help other women with their money issues and the rest they say is history.
Today I am SUPER PROUD of my online class SMART WOMEN LOVE MONEY because I’m not willing to live in a world where eight out of 10 women feel emotionally + intellectually unprepared to manage their own money.
I know that we’re smarter + stronger than our fears. And I know that when women gather in a circle to learn, share + support one another, transformation is inevitable. I regularly witness transformations in my classes. I believe it’s a sacred act to question any fear or belief that is not helping us be all that we are meant to be.
I truly hope you’ll join us for SMART WOMEN LOVE MONEY beginning January 22, 2013 from 2 to 3:15 pm PT / 5 to 6:15 pm ET.
Financial integrity + alignment + success. What could be richer than that?

“I’ve been very emotional working through my painful beliefs about money but I’ve become lighter and freer. Our fears feed on darkness and knowing our money situation is always better and actually less scary. Knowing that money is energy and the Universe is abundant. I knew both these things but Smart Women Love Money deepened my knowledge and I’m seeing it from another perspective.”
Jodi Salata, Life Coach

Smart Women Case Studies:
I am a very much-empowered woman when it comes to how a woman should be treated and respected and will stand up for the rights of a woman and let my voice be heard. But there was something that was lacking in me that was taking my confidence away. I had not taken any control of handling my own finances all because there was a fear of money.
I was scared to look at how much I earned for fear that it may be too much – yes — I had a fear that if a person has too much money, others will not want to associate with you or brand you as one from the high-class society that gets sneered at.
This feeling stems from childhood. I have experienced relations that do not talk or mix with each other because one family has too much money and looks down on the other as one does not belong to the same social class or status. My close friend from school experienced the worst when her own uncle broke the leg of her father because her father had amassed more wealth in his lifetime and the reason for all the misery in her family was attributed to too much money. Hence, I was afraid that if I made a lot of money, bad things would happen.
I wanted to change all that, to be in control of my life, and my financial life. I was presented with the opportunity to learn about money, to look at money with the love and compassion through the teachings of Sherold, whom I had met at the Run For Congo Women and at a fundraiser at my house. I loved to listen to her lectures, read through the trainings, watch her videos and do the homework just because Sherold would ask us to be kind to ourselves and let the fear dissipate. When Sherold told us about her money story, I knew that she had to start from the bottom and work her way to feel happy and whole, a feeling that I wanted for myself.
With the support of my husband and Sherold’s class, I took small steps to find out about our money situation. My husband is the one who takes charge of expenses. He showed me how to read our bills and bank statements, pay our monthly bills and balance our checking account. I was able to see where our money leaks were.
I am not at the place where I want to be, but I know now that the class has given me the confidence and courage to get control of my situation. I am getting better at handling finances and learning to be kind to myself instead of shaming and blaming myself for not doing anything for years.
Thank you Sherold, for all the learning’s, for the confidence boost and for making me more finance savvy and for all the kindness and happiness you have given to me. May the best things happen to you and hope all your dreams come true.
I now understand that when GOD gives you the money, he is also entrusting you with a lot of power and if we do not make use of this power to learn about money and use it wisely, it will eventually go away in some form or the other. So I am opening up and show GOD all my vulnerabilities. I hope that he will ultimately lead me to the place where I belong and where my heart is happy and peaceful.
“As the one in our family who brings home the income, I was in a constant state of panic, not quite knowing where the money would come from. Now I am much more confident in being able to forecast not only income, but expenses. I can also look at expenses much more objectively rather than feel shame or anger or resentment over what has been spent. I’ve been much more proactive in setting my “expense expectations” with people, so I don’t get upset or blindsided by expenses. I’m willing to say that something is too expensive, or I don’t have the budget for it without feeling bad.
I ‘m really interested in working on money manifestation because I see that I do have a certain attraction to bringing in money, and I would like to have that come more to the forefront of how I organize my business. I am trying to create that money abundance emotion in my website and see what happens!
If someone doesn’t have a healthy relationship with money (and most of us don’t), then they should take this class.”
Kathy H., Sustainable Colorist
Sherold talks about money as a mirror for other aspects of your life, and this idea really resonated with me. I saw that I was ignoring my finances with my head in the sand, and other messy parts of my life as well. All of the energy that I was spending avoiding these messes, was exhausting.
This class gave me the support and guidance to face the messes in my life, and clear them away. I still have a lot of things that need work in my life, but the fear is gone.
I feel ready and excited to tackle anything! As a result, I’m really seeing money come in a way that I haven’t before.
I was encouraged to FIND my courage in this class, and that has given me the confidence and the belief that I am capable.
Money troubles are so much bigger than just money, and this class can help you see the big picture, and take control of your life. Your relationship with money can be calm, exciting and fun, rather than terrifying and anxiety inducing. This class can absolutely help you transform your relationship with money, and your life!”
Johanna Wright / Artist and Illustrator
My level of fear around money when I started the class was huge! I just wanted it to all go away. When I thought about even looking at my financial situation I was miserable. It was very easy to distract myself and ignore it but that just made me more scared. So, I was, of course, not only not taking care of my money and myself, I was digging myself deeper.
What helped me face my fear was being tired of being afraid and knowing I needed to do something to make my relationship with money better.
When I saw Sherold’s class, I had a huge “Aha moment” – as if she made this class just for me! I signed up immediately. The really amazing mix of information, coaching, worksheets, and interviews in the class gave me the resources I needed, but also the incentive and desire to tackle my fears.
As a result of this class I have signed up for Mint.com to help me track my spending. Mint also provides one place to monitor my money situation. I know what money I have, where it is, and I have taken the responsibility to care for it. I am in the process of finalizing all the left over financial ties to my ex-husband – including getting and investing the retirement money I received.
I now have a financial planner to help me meet my goals. I have read several books on personal finance that are helping me set up a system so I will never be so uninformed about such an important part of my life again.
I have a weekly Money Day, and I don’t dread taking care of my financial life anymore.
This class honestly changed my life, and I am so grateful to Sherold for helping me!
I highly recommend this class to any woman with any fears about money. It is also perfect for anyone afraid to make money or to ask enough for their work. If you want wonderful ideas about how to find financial freedom – take this class. If you want to know how to manifest a life that gives you what you need and want – take this class.
The tools and information make this class very useful but the warmth, wisdom, and authenticity Sherold provides make it incredible!
Cheryl Haezebroeck / Interior Designer & Life Coach
“Since taking your teleclass this fall, I have so much more confidence in my ability to handle the financial aspect of my life. Feeling competent and acting responsibly with my money has been a life long tug-of-war for me. While all other areas of my life have come together, dealing with money has always been a struggle for me. This problem has affected all aspects of my life, and has limited me in so many ways. I have read books and listened to experts in the field of financial management, and have always come away feeling very defeated and overwhelmed.
The difference in your program is huge for me. I came away from each session feeling empowered and encouraged to continue chipping away at what is getting in the way of my financial freedom.
This class focuses on the root of the problem~ my limiting beliefs about myself, and the “story” I have chosen to tell myself about my ability to liberate myself from this situation.
The material and the class itself is presented in a very supportive way that encourages me to show up authentically. It feels like a safe place for me to be transparent and vulnerable, rather than shutting down and concealing the shame that keeps me from dealing with this problem. It is also comforting and empowering to be in the presence of so many other dynamic women who are all working to transform their relationship with money as well.
All in all, this class has sparked a new belief in me. I now believe that I can, and I will, become a wonderful money manager, and that I have the ability to create all the prosperity I desire. I am actively participating, on a daily basis, in living my new money story.”

my money leaks, and my schedule is busier but it doesn’t feel like effort. I really liked the information Sherold shared of her own experiences with manifesting, and her own beliefs about it. I found that having the class to look forward to every week gave me a little upbeat note of accountability, and being in the company of like-minded women and listening to their Work was very therapeutic.”
Sarah Dedmon, writer

I am deeply appreciative of your class. Thank you for doing this work.”

“I really enjoyed the class and feel I had a big breakthrough on a unconscious belief that has been holding me back in all areas of my life. I left your class feeling empowered and learned so much from everyone’s story! I am so impressed by you as a leader and your fearlessness!”
