Wellthier Together Podcast Introduction
  Hello and welcome to the Wellthier Together podcast.  My name is Dr. Blessing and I am going to be your host. My mission is to help women cultivate emotional, mental and physical wellness through the setting of clear boundaries, good nutrition and optimizing digestive health so that they have the energy to pursue their God given purpose. I founded Wellthier Together because I wanted to create a community of professionals that is focused on helping women cultivate wellness in all areas of their life.  I believe it's important to cultivate wellness and all areas of our life because all of these areas are interrelated.  So, for example, your financial health plays a role on your emotional and mental health and your emotional and mental health plays a big role in your physical health.  I decided to create the wealthier together pop up podcasts to help women in different areas and stages of their life, cultivate wellness. The first set of interviews is going to take a look at financial wellness and financial health.  And the women that I've picked to interview have a holistic approach in the way that they view finances, so they don't view finances are just a means to an end bit.  Developing those habits that you need to be successful in life and successful with saving money and having an emergency fund and all the things that have to do with financial health, they focus on those areas.   And ironically, the same things that you need to focus on your financial health, the same habits you have to learn and can be applied in regards to your health and your relationships. And of course, when you're setting boundaries. I hope you enjoy the first series of the Wellthier Together Pop Up  Podcast.
