Hi, I’m Jacquette M. Timmons – a self-described financial rebel and “money is never just about money” evangelist. I am so tired of my industry focusing just on the numbers – which is really the easy part of the money equation. So, I’ve taken a stand and have proudly made a commitment to move beyond the numbers & spend more time on the psychology + emotions of money! I believe this is a more powerful way to manage your money and your financial choices. And this stance infuses everything I do! Care to be a rebel with me?
