That’s how Amanda Steinberg felt in her late 20s. She had bottomed out financially, emotionally—everything. She’d worked herself to the bone to showcase herself as a 21st Century working mom, and like practically every college-educated woman she knew, she'd followed what seemed like straightforward steps to building the perfect post-feminist life.
It was at this gut-check moment, in debt and emotionally spent, when she realized that she was "worth it," and so are you.

As a female, have you ever felt like you could not achieve the same financial success as others because of your gender or present situation?
Have you struggled to let go of old weight and society’s expectations of what you should do with your life?
For women who believe they need money to be enough, are afraid they’ll never achieve financial success, or feel stuck in their present situation, this episode is for you.
We are all worthy of financial success and feeling empowered about ourselves.
Despite gender inequality in the workforce and how society views and values money, women have the ability to take the idea of financial success and make it something of their own.
We don't have to allow society's structure and regulations to prevent us from creating a successful relationship with money because we're worth more than that.
What are the stories we tell ourselves in relation to money around society?
For decades, situations and circumstances have shaped the household roles of both males and females. Males have been the providers and women the nurturers.
This idea has been branded in our minds. Society tells us that males cannot be the nurturers nor females the providers. Fortunately, this idea is slowly changing as females are discovering their self-worth and net worth.
Today on Wellness Force Radio, Founder & CEO of DailyWorth, founder of WorthFM, and author of Worth It: Your Life, Your Money, Your Terms, Amanda Steinberg shares how she’s helping women find their inner strength to let go of old weight and gain financial freedom.
At a young age, Amanda observed the burden that money had on her mother. She saw first-hand the pressure that her mother experienced to make sure that she had enough money to pay the bills and provide a comfortable life for her family.
At one point or another, we can all relate to that same pressure that Amanda’s mother faced. We’ve all experienced the pressure to “be enough” and have a baseline of “normalcy” according to our financial self-worth.
We’re pressured to have enough money to provide for the perfect family, have the best possessions, or to fit our role according to our gender. Unfortunately, because of this pressure around normalcy and money, some women might feel held back from achieving their own financial success.
We’re afraid that we’re not worthy because of how we show up to society.
On this episode, you will learn that despite what society has told us, financial freedom is attainable for anyone. Money shouldn’t be a burden according to our background, gender, or knowledge.
One day Amanda learned an important lesson from her mother that has helped her to let go of old weight and rewire how she perceives money.
To be financially secure, we just need two things: Roots and Wings:
Join us in listening to Amanda as she shares how we can rewire our perceptions about money and gain financial freedom.
