How to consistently make MORE MONEY in your business.
And do it without wasting your precious time and energy feeling worried, distracted or overwhelmed!
Karen Russo guides consultants, experts, and business owners for 3 results: financial breakthrough, transformation as a leader, and weekly progress for your goals
If you’re not making and keeping the money you want, it’s costing you. Financial upset affects you, your life, and your business. Does any of this sound like YOU?
- beating yourself up about the things you haven’t done
- too exhausted to close sales and pay bills each month
- secretly feeling lost, ashamed, or empty of inspiration
- missing out on the bigger, more strategic projects and clients
- arguing with your spouse or team about financial things
- doubting your passion for the business because of money
This kind of stress is painful. And a solution is possible. This approach is for you–IF you are a passion driven, goal oriented, creative talent who wants to do what you love—AND make and keep more money!
- You’re the ‘One’. You’re the owner and the operator. Yes, you might have a team or a partner or an upline or a model… but it’s your energy, drive, decisions, and actions that must be inspired, energized, and effective to move forward.
- You LIKE it and you want to be Better! You accept that it’s both a blessing and a curse to be so responsible for the strategic and financial success of You, Unlimited.
- The Curse: Yes, sometimes the constant financial pressure is draining. A drain to the passion that you need to do the work. A drain to the financial results you’re trying to create. A drain to your relationship with your friends, family, and beloved. But it’s worth it…
- The Blessing. You WANT to be more inspired and effective because it matters. When you’re at you best, clients get solutions, your practice grows, your personal life feels satisfying.
- When you hear a money coach like me say ‘Grow Yourself, Grow Your Wealth’, you say ‘Yes, sister, I want that!’
If this feels up for you right now… then you are in the right place. And you are not alone!
Wildly talented folks, especially women, struggle with the same things you’re experiencing. They’re hard working entrepreneurial professionals who like the freedom that comes with ‘being your own boss’, who want to make money and contribution while connecting deeply with their vision and inspiration… but at the same time, they haven’t found strategy, clarity, confidence, and consistent success with money.
To make matters worse, some think being ‘spiritual’ or ‘conscious’ means they should automatically know how to ‘get over’ their fears, confusion, and money issues. When it doesn’t just magically happen, they end up feeling overwhelmed, anxious, ashamed, and stuck.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. There IS hope.
I get it and I can help.
I’m Karen Russo, author of The Money Keys, and a Money Momentum Coach. Many of you know my money and spiritual background.
I grew up in a middle-class family on the east coast of North America. Very intense, dedicated young girl. Always wanting to be a good student, loving and respecting my teachers. I studied communication, theatre, business, and economics, graduating as an MBA with a finance degree from Columbia Business School.
As a young woman, I was challenged with addictions and crippling low self-esteem… struggling to reconcile my powerlessness and my seeming success in work and money. Then I discovered a power greater than myself. What a blessing! I’ve been on a 25-year spiritual journey, becoming a licensed spiritual counselor and an ordained minister. Those themes—love of God and love of money—became the foundation for the Money Keys Ministry.
In 2007, The Money Keys book was published, based on a holistic framework called the Money Map, showing how we create our wealth experience through spirituality, beliefs, and habits.
A suite of programs, tools, exercises with this cohesive approach to money was welcomed by thousands of individuals, spiritual seekers, creative professionals, and business owners, all over the world.
I’ve been invited to speak and coach with women entrepreneurs throughout North America, sponsored by groups like ewomen, NAWBO, and the Business Journal. When Sharon Lechter wanted a provocative chapter for Think and Grow Rich for Women, I was asked to author a message for ‘Sex Transmutation and Money.’
What you MAY NOT KNOW about me, is that for the last 20+ years I’ve considered myself to be the Leader of Karen Russo, Unlimited. Over the last couple of decades, I’ve been able to maintain over $100,000++ in revenue year after year from a combination of job, ministry, investment, real estate, and Money Keys offerings.
The 3 things I discovered I needed:
- a financial strategy customized to ME,
- a fresh money story about myself as a Leader, inspired by Spirit, AND
- consistent weekly rhythms to achieve progress.
My decision making is now more intuitive. My financial purpose is more tightly connected to my own passions and to making the money I desire. I’m saying ‘no thanks’ and ‘not now’ without any upset.
I’ve been a consistent, inspired, effective leader of my own financial life, in a way that has helped me to be a much better mentor and coach to people exactly like you. What I know about YOU:
You can’t just FOLLOW. (You know, follow the coach, follow the crowd, follow the recipe.)
You can’t be only on the SURFACE. (Empty affirmations ring hollow.)
You can’t be FRANTIC. (Making unrealistic ‘commitments’ to what you’ll do and then bailing.)
What does it mean to be a MONEY LEADER?
- You follow a Strategy that is current, inspiring, and directly connected to making money.
- You hold yourself empowered, confident as a Leader, making decisions with money.
- You have a weekly productive approach that gets Results.
Return on your Investment: Get Results.
- Financial Breakthrough—Cha-Ching!
- Healing—A New Money Story
- Momentum—Productive Each Week
My clients who do the work consistently get 3 RESULTS.
What can these outcomes do for YOU?
One Client Services Consultant in a recent program was scoping a proposal for a prospect, offering a wide range of services, and thinking of a price tag of $8,000 a month for a six-month project. I coached her with money strategy, purpose, process and results measures, as well as a personal leadership vision for her money. Well! Back to the proposal, filled with a stronger sense of her own value, she drew up an offering of $11,000 a month for six-months. The prospect said ‘Yes!’ Our coaching group gave a BIG ‘Woo Hoo!’
Do the math. (We did!) That’s $18,000 that would have been LOST without the money leadership coaching, strategy, and support.
Healing—Authoring a New Money Story
Discover what old emotional blocks need to be dissolved so that you can confidently make decisions about what you need in your business. Present yourself in a financially empowering manner. Feel joyful, hopeful, and free about money.
One realtor was exhausting with a lot of self-criticism, calling herself a procrastinator. She worked week by week, tuning into what she authentically desired. She affirmed her inspiring money purpose. Her story changed. ‘I’m not a procrastinator, I prioritize.’ The marketing activities emerged as things she wasn’t doing because they weren’t important to her. Her solution: stop doing things that don’t move her business forward… and stop the self-criticism for good!
Money Momentum—Weekly Progress for your Goals
One health expert who wanted to grow her direct marketing business came in overwhelmed and struggling. While she was doing the books for her family pest control business she felt she should be out having conversations about her intestinal health products. When she sat down to share the health products and the business opportunity, she would be distracted by what might be happening with her family business.
An immediate shift happened when she implemented the weekly rhythms of Money Monday and Faithful Friday. Each week she got inspired about her purpose, clear about her time and boundaries, and stopped sabotaging herself with doubt. Happier at home, quicker with the monthly books, and, oh by the way, she made the Ruby level in her direct marketing business!
Imagine what LEADING your business and financial life would be like, if you didn’t waste one more precious moment, precious dollar, or precious thought being confused and overwhelmed about money!
“As I’ve half-joked before, I signed up for this thinking I needed to learn how to better attract money—and I ended up getting a life! Working with Karen Russo as my money coach in her group program I’m realizing that wealth building makes most sense when built on top of a spiritual foundation.
I became aware of my income spiraling upwards organically as I set systems in place to track and organize my scorecard and expenses. The Money Monday and Faithful Friday rituals ‘forced’ me to stop and see the good on a regular basis.
Asking the question ‘what’s the money for?’ – isn’t answered with some far-off vision board– it’s about all the little moments every day when my heart smiles. Coaching and weekly accountability turned out to be a good practice for me as it forced me to stick to something, follow thru, and complete.
While at first I wasn’t sure about having this in a group setting – I realized the value of learning from each other. You never know from who a golden nugget is going to come from.
Also, my personal relationships softened as anxiety isn’t my constant undertone. I am learning that how I value myself mirrors out and I receive that in return.
Yes – I got my life back!”

Introducing… Lead Your Money Like a Boss with Karen Russo
I’ve taken a blend of my very best offerings, put it together in an intensive format, and designed it so that you can tailor the outcomes to your specific goals.
I’ve led thousands of hours of group coaching, designed several creative online membership programs, and coached privately with people in person and virtually.
The biggest problem I see: too many of you join programs HOPING. Hoping the program or the coach or the fancy system will give you the motivation to be different.
When you stretch to spend a bunch of money for a lot of stuff, you’ll often be dogged by the question: ‘How do I have to work hard enough to get the most out of this program?’ You’ll always feel like you’re not doing enough or doing it right.
Lead Your Money Like a Boss is built around a MUCH better question: ‘Who do I choose to be to get the best results for me?’

We’ll review and fine tune the work you’ve done, adding wisdom and perspective. Often (and this is ideal) I’ll conduct the VIP with you and 1-2 of the other Lead Your Money participants so that you’ll learn from each other — and we create a deep, intense environment for change together.
You’ll walk away with a completed and inspiring spiritual and financial roadmap.

Each week you’ll connect to Money Purpose, review your Scorecard #’s, and look forward to the week ahead for Actions. I’ll be coaching you for celebrating success, keeping accountable for commitments, and moving through the blind spots that always arise when we implement new plans.

Money Keys Kit
Leaders like to read, sometimes the old school way… snuggled in your favorite chair with a hot mug of something wonderful. Well, me too! I’m including a shipped-to-your door kit of my original book, The Money Keys, the amazing mini book, Grow Yourself, Grow Your Wealth, and a Music for Wealthy Living compilation music CD that has 12 songs of spiritual connection and prosperity from 6 positive music artists.
Is this for You? Here’s what you’re likely asking yourself:
‘Will I do it? Really?”
Yes, this offering is a LOT. It’s common to feel overwhelmed or discouraged about your own track record with programs.
What I promise you is this: the content and sequence of this offering is well organized, logical, and specifically designed to leverage what you’ve already done. You choose what moves you forward. This is a transformational experience that will work if you work it.
“Is it worth it? What’s the ROI?”
You may be thinking: ‘Do I want to invest money in a coaching program for myself? Shouldn’t I put this money back into my business, into marketing, or technology?’.
Start thinking now about how easily and quickly you’d realize at least a 150% return on your investment in Lead Your Money. What are you spending on marketing and technology tactics that aren’t really working? How much would you save if you stopped? Where have you not raised your rates with clients? What’s the upside of a 10-15% increase in your pricing? Do the math. You’ll be set up to quickly achieve the ROI you deserve.
“Why should I trust you, Karen, as my spiritual money mentor?”
With me, you can absolutely count on me to 100% match your passion about your financial and business success. And you can rely on me to be real about the lessons I’ve learned and how that can help you.
My perspective, skills, and gifts are a unique blend. With my background in ministry and corporate training and finance, I’m a VERY good generalist deeply connected to spiritual power with a lot of practical knowledge. I’m confident in what I know and I’m also humble where I don’t know I look forward to serving your unique personality, drive, and story.
What is the Investment?
The optimal length for the complete Lead Your Money experience is 2-3 months total.
Money Leadership Training Curriculum. Allocate at least 2-3 hours for your own self-study schedule for each of the 3 intensive modules. You’ll be watching videos, stopping, doing your exercises.
VIP Personal Strategy Session. We’ll schedule 3 hours of side by side time together. Most will do that in 1 or 2 Zoom sessions. For those in Arizona (or folks who want to visit gorgeous Scottsdale), we’ll work in my home with views of Camelback Mountain. I’ll likely be pairing you with another brilliant, talented business owner to get the most value out of the VIP Personal Session.
Weekly Group Coaching and Accountability. For the weeks of your Group Coaching, plan on 1-2 hours per week total. That includes: Zoom for 60 minutes on Mondays, 5 minutes Friday mornings for the Faithful Friday Facebook Live practice, 15 minutes for posting and engaging on Facebook, and up to 30 minutes for your own additional spiritual practice.
Yes, this is a commitment. You have got to show up. Not just, you know, kind of check out the replay later. You need to be thinking, present, awake, and available.
Programs like this are typically a $5,000 – $7,000 investment.
Because this is a customized offering in a private/ group setting, we work together to create a Lead Your Money experience priced just right for you.

“I’m a smart woman about so many elements of my leadership and teams consulting business. And I spent 37 years in the financial services and investment industry!

Karen Russo guides visionaries like me with simple approaches to leveraging income strategies.
After working with Karen, I realize there are reports already available and strategies that inspire me, so the business can grow in revenue and profitability.
