Sylvia and Vicki's Story

Sylvia and Vicki are childhood friends who, after following separate career paths, have now come together on a shared mission—helping people be more empowered around money.

Here’s their story.

Sylvia’s career embraces her two passions: what goes into your mouth and what comes out of it.  She has a lifelong interest in nutrition and is a registered dietitian nutritionist. She discovered the world of Nonviolent (Compassionate) Communication, while working as a nonprofit director in the San Francisco Bay Area.These two passions came together as she wrote the book Eat by Choice Not by Habit: Practical Skills for Creating a Healthy Relationship with Your Body and Food. Sylvia has been invited all over the globe to facilitate workshops to help participants transform and heal their relationships with themselves, with others and with food.

Vicki’s bumpers sticker could read, “Heal thyself”  When she was in a graduate program, she experienced a life-threatening surgical emergency which lead her to the decision to become a surgeon, with a primary focus in the treatment of breast cancer.  Two decades ago she became an entrepreneur and often felt like an alien as a healer in the world of business.  She observed that the major cultural difference comes down to a relationship with money.  She interviewed hundreds of doctors about their money stories and shares her observations in the books The Myth of the Rich Doctor and The 9 Money Mistakes Doctors Make. She observed that the financial challenges that people face are not about managing money; it’s about how they manage themselves. Further, behavioral finance shows how biology impacts money choices.

Recently, while at the funeral of a childhood friend, Sylvia and Vicki went on a walk to catch up with each other.  After sharing their stories, they asked an important questions: could Sylvia’s process of transformation that had been proven with issues surrounding food help people struggling with money?

And, as they say, the rest is history.
