A 10 week program for ambitious women who want to enjoy their money and f*ck the patriarchy.
Hello. I'm Naomi Clark. Proud Black American Woman. Truth Teller. Sworn Enemy Of The Patriarchy.
I'm also a Money Coach + Consultant
I believe in a world where women trust themselves when it comes to your money. You trust your decisions. You trust your knowledge. You trust your instincts.
I trust you with money.
But sometimes- it can be hard to have self trust with money. Sometimes- we get stuck.
Stuck in painful money patterns from the past. We may think these patterns are an indication that something is wrong with us. We may think we are just "not good" with money.
Stuck in the societal oppression that promotes and upholds disparities and inequities when it comes to women and money. We may think we are just "not qualified" to make money decisions.
Stuck in the habits of perfectionism and "people-pleasing" when it comes down to making choices for ourselves and our money. We may think we are just "not deserving" of pursuing our own dreams.
I trust your capability to make sound money decisions.
Let's uncover and uproot the old, played-out money stories from the past about who is supposed to have money- and who is not.
Let's toss out those "hand-me-down" beliefs and habits which no longer serve us.
Let's f*ck up the oppression getting in our way- at the societal level and the personal level.
It's time to flip the script.
It's time to ALIGN.
We will do external work
You will create your personal money blue print plan for managing your money.
All of your money.
Your paying debt back.
Your money blue print plan will be sustainable. No more dreading sitting down to run numbers and review statements.
Over our ten weeks together in ALIGN
We will do internal work
We will excavate the unconscious money stories and money scripts running on auto pilot that's preventing us from reaching our financial goals.
You will understand how to identify and disrupt oppressive systems designed to keep women feeling unprepared, doubtful and distracted when it comes to money.
You will design routines, habits, and rituals that will create self trust with money.
In ALIGN you will learn a system that will provide you "real time" insight into how you are tracking to your planned spending.
Your personal money blue print plan will be grounded in clarity and alignment.
Clarity with your values.
Alignment to your money goals.
We will make Power Moves
Learn my methodology, the self-AUDIT-practice for how to bolster your self-trust, uncover your invisible sources of power, leverage external sources of power, and align your actions to your values.
I do not teach "believe it and make it so" tactics. You are going to learn an actual system to use for getting into power- not just with your money, but in your life.
The self-AUDIT-practice incorporates reflective, spiritual, inner work AND incorporates taking actual, concrete steps to actualize and implement your ideas, goals, and dreams.
This is not only about money- it is about your life
Money doesn't have to be a grind.
When it comes to money, I don't just give you "quick tips" or "guaranteed steps" when it comes to money management. I do not subscribe to the Cinderella make-over stories of how "so & so" paid off all their debt on a shoestring budget. Nor do I subscribe to the notion you can simply save your way to the life you want by slashing expenses- nobody I know got rich from cutting out lattes.
But money doesn't have to be a grind. It is possible to have ease and flow with your money. You deserve to flourish today- not wait for "financial freedom" someday.
In ALIGN we will cover about how to make money decisions a place of autonomy, agency, ease, and flow.

Make Power Moves
Money is a form of power- it can buy you time, create safety, and amplify your values. It's important to be in your power when making money decisions. Learn my methodology to bolster your self-trust, uncover your invisible sources of power, leverage your external sources of power, and align your actions to your values. Learn my system, the self-AUDIT-practice for how how to make Power Moves in your life.
Feeling stuck in painful patterns about money is real. We may think there is something wrong with us- that we just aren't "good" with money. These painful patterns can keep us from reaching our goals, and trusting ourselves. But often these patterns come from the past. These are old money scripts running on auto pilot. Learn how to "flip the script" to create money momentum.
Debt Shaming Culture
Debt Shaming Culture seeks to establish a relationship between your character and your morals. Debt Shaming Culture says your debt is a personal shortcoming, that it is a character flow to have debt. This creates such a a strong sense of urgency and obligation to "get out of debt"- that often the full financial picture is ignored. This creates an imbalance in your cash flow which can make your financial goals feel impossible to achieve. You are not the problem. Learn how to dissolve debt shame while creating a holistic financial plan to get you closer to your goals.
The Money Mindset Villains
The Money Mindset Villains define your mindset as "the answer" for securing external resources such as money, time, and power. These villains lie and tell you that your mindset is the only thing getting in the way of your success. But the Money Mindset Villains are the problem. They take oppressive systems "off the hook" by not acknowledging any inequality and bias you may experience. This is damaging- most especially to those who have intersectional identities and those who live in communities marginalized by society. Learn how to recognize and disarm the Money Mindset Villains in your finances (and you life).
We are at the mid-point of ALIGN. It is time for some rest. Now we rest. Relax. Soothe your nervous system. Take to time to just BE. At times it can be difficult to take a break for ourselves. When you care about others, when you are accustomed to being of service to others- it may feel hard to carve out time for yourself, but you can't pour from an empty cup. This week we will learn from each other ways we are resting and ways we are integrating the inner work we've uncovered thus far in ALIGN . We will bask in each other's company.
The Money Cycle
Money is a resource that supports that an exchange of value. Money flows through different stages of the Money Cycle based on your behaviors, decisions, and the season of life you are within. In the Money Cycle, all stages serve a purpose. There is no "good" or "bad" in the Money Cycle- instead there is "flow" and "stagnation." This week we go above and beyond the traditional methods to gain financial literacy. Learn the stages of the Money Cycle, the language of finance, and how to leverage this knowledge in your money decisions.
Values Based Budgeting
There is an assumption that having a budget and an emergency fund is the "magic bullet" to managing your money. The typical approach used in budgeting creates a false sense of financial security. This is because budgets don't work when we need them most- that is at the point of decision when it comes to making a purchase. Traditional budgeting methods place an over emphasis on planning your spending- but don't equip you to make spending decisions in our modern world. Learn how to create clarity, alignment, organization and ease in managing your day to day finances.
Make Money Moves
Let's make money moves with investing. It's more important than ever before that women invest. Yet, studies show that women invest less than men. We don't just have a wage gap, we have an investment gap. And this gap is amplified for folks with intersectional identities and who are from communities society marginalizes. You don't need a lot of money to start investing- that is one of many myths we will debunk this week in ALIGN. Learn how you can accelerate financial security through the power of investing.
Creating Money Trust
When it comes to making decisions about money, you start with self-trust. That means paying attention to the feelings coming up within you. That means listening to your gut. That means following your instincts. If something feels off or not right- follow that feeling. But sometimes creating self trust with money can be easier said than done. This week you will integrate what you've learned in prior modules including Money Scripts, Debt Shaming Culture, and the Money Mindset Villains to dissolve doubt, uncertainty, and shame. Learn how to create personalized habits, rituals, and routines that will nurture trust within yourself.
This is our final week of ALIGN. We will reflect on our journey together. Grab a cup of coffee, some water, a glass of wine, or even some whisky- and let's get into it. What have you uncovered? What are your aha moments? What rituals have you incorporated into your money routines? How are you closer to our dreams? This week we will reflect, celebrate wins, and share how we've integrated what we've learned from our time together.

I'm Naomi Clark. I help you make Power Moves.
Who I am
I'm Naomi Clark. Feminist Money Coach + Consultant.
#OutspokenAF. Proud Black American Woman. Sworn Enemy Of The Patriarchy. Podcaster. Truth Teller. Lover of swear words, history, and politics. Mom. Wife. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Human Being.
I believe in speaking truth to power with honesty, heart, and humility. I believe in the power of Everyday People.
Why I do this work
I do this work because "respectable" and "common sense" people and politicians would have you believe that the founding of the United States is not rooted in oppression.
And that oppression is not real.
But oppression is real and it's always personal. There is no talking about money and power without talking about oppressive systems.
My vision for you
I believe you are deserving of rest, joy, peace, and to just BE. Not because you have to earn it- but because it's your birthright as human BEING.
I believe when justice-informed people have More Money and More Power, the world is a better, safer place. For all people. For our planet.
