Surviving to Thriving: Overcoming My Darkest Moment

Leisa Peterson

In this episode of “Surviving to Thriving: Overcoming My Darkest Moment,” I talk with money coach, author and educator Leisa Peterson. Growing up the daughter of hippie parents who were always in financial struggle, Leisa thought money was the answer to everything. Rejecting her upbringing where she felt like a misfit, Leisa pursued a lucrative career in finance, married her college sweetheart and had two kids. The outside looked perfect, and although she wasn’t happy, she didn’t question what happiness meant until her father was brutally murdered. This pivotal event sent her diving head-first into Buddhism, mindfulness and meditation… but it actually wasn’t her darkest moment.

Listen in as Leisa shares her journey from lack and emotional disconnect to one of abundance (which has nothing to do with money). Today she runs a thriving business and money coaching practice in Sedona, AZ, and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, FastCompany, Forbes and more. Leisa combines 25 years of finance experience with mindfulness practices to help men and women reconnect with their true selves while growing businesses that make the world a better place.
