An unexpected story of trust, listening to the quiet nudges, taking action, and holding on to the ride. In a month and a half, I'll be leaving Florida and heading to Texas in the Airstream. Not what I planned, and yet it was clear that I was to go there. If you're a Fixer Upper fan, you'll love what happened today as part of this unfolding adventure (and I'm not even in Texas yet).
I am so excited to introduce Sonja Palomino!
Sonja Palomino become a financial coach after her family almost lost everything, and it inspired her to learn how to turn her family’s finances around, get out of debt, and get the financial weight of the world off her shoulders. In 2004, with a new baby on her hip, a new house under construction, a 401K loan, and up to their eyeballs in credit card debt, Sonja’s family had a $70K reduction in income, going from over $100K down to $40K overnight. Through the guilt and shame and at one of the lowest times in her life, her passion was ignited.
Now, as a financial coach, her unique system looks at much more than simply the numbers; she also empowers her clients to dig deeper to focus on bringing joy, abundance, and peace into this typically black-and-white financial realm. She specializes in working with entrepreneurs with irregular income, showing them how to create a strong financial foundation and build the lifestyle and future they wanted when they went into business for themselves in the first place. She has personally conducted over 9,000 one-on-one coaching sessions to help her clients transform their relationship with money.

A number of writers – from Anders Ericsson in Peak, Malcolm Gladwell in Outliers, and Martha Beck in Finding Your Way in a Wild New World – discuss the value of investing ten thousand hours of deep or deliberate practice in order to achieve mastery in a field. I have been fascinated by the idea of looking at what interests me so much that I’d spent ten thousand hours deep-practicing it. My list is short and sweet:
- clearing clutter and organizing
- reading books about personal growth, spirituality, and living an intentional life
Ten years ago, I was standing in front of a mastermind group, pen in hand, trying to describe something that was near and dear to my heart: clearing clutter as a profound, life-changing practice. Without any planning on my part, out popped this pyramid diagram... and it has been teaching me what it means ever since.
My unexpected journey from church to new age to Christ... and what it means for my business, my clients, and moving forward.
