Episode 8 - Jacquette Timmons.jpg

Jacquette M. Timmons focuses on the human side of money. She works as a financial behaviorist and is committed to getting you to see that you don't manage money - you manage your choices around money.


In addition to being an author ("Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate”) and frequent blogger, Jacquette is also the creator of The Comfort Circle™ - a dinner series, where she hosts discussions about money, business and life over food and wine - and “In the Zone: How to Price Your Genius” - a 1-day small group retreat about how to price your genius and become confident in what you charge. She is also the host of the podcast, "More Than Money."



  • Jacquette defines and describes her work as a  Financial Behaviorist. 

  • Highlights from Jacquette’s book, Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate:

    • The Pyramid of Wise Money Management - how the foundational layers of awareness, beliefs, thoughts, behavior and reasoning influence the small tip of purposeful action

    • The importance and diversity of the women's stories shared in the book

    • Beyond the Numbers  - why "Financial Success Doesn't Start in Your Wallet" 

  • The 4 Financial Modes and why they matter

  • How Jacquette, as a Financial Behaviorist, helps women navigate through sudden money transitions, such as inheritance, divorce or loss of a spouse, during which they are suddenly faced with the need to engage with money in a new way 

  • The focus and audience of Jacquette’s podcast, “More than Money” 

  • Values: Being aware of and present to HOW we're bringing our values into our money life, getting out of the mindset of just being tactical and reactive with our money, and making the time to stop leaving money on the back burner

  • Women, Money, and Power:

    • Examples of what power can look like in our money lives, such as being intentional about where you spend your money, asking for a raise or having the uncomfortable conversation with your parents about their financial situation

    • How your definition of power can shift over time 

    • How having a clear idea of what power means to you helps ensure that you’re not intentionally or unintentionally quieting your own financial power 






When she's not providing behavioral-based financial coaching, she's traveling the country for speaking engagements on behalf of Fortune 100, AM Law 200 companies, and nationally known non-profits to talk about the intersection of emotions and money. Her work has been featured on SiriusXM, "Good Morning America,", CNN, HLN, FOX, Black Enterprise, NPR,, Wall Street Journal and Family Circle.


Jacquette holds an MBA in finance from Fordham University’s Graduate School of Business and an undergrad in marketing from the Fashion Institute of Technology. A combination she credits, in part, for being able to blend her analytical mind and creative spirit in service to helping her clients shift how they look at money; how they perceive its role in their life; and how they give it direction. She lives in Brooklyn, NY and can be seen running in Prospect Park most days of the week.
