Chellie Campbell joined Ed Marsh to talk about her LavaCon keynote presentation, People Love to Give You Money! And Recognition! And Headcount!

Chellie started her career as a musical comedy actress and then became a bookkeeper. When she learned that not many people could read their financial statements, she started teaching them, which led her to write books and teach workshops. She has found that most people look at money from the perspective of stock brokers and financial planners, which means they view money with a negative perspective:

These people say, “You’re going to run out of money. You’re not going to have enough money for medical expenses.” It’s a place of fear. It’s ridiculous. You should be enjoying your money. I take the money piece, and I make it fun. Budget means Baby U Deserve Getting Every Thing, and I talk about that in my talk.”

Chellie believes people focus too much on what’s wrong or what’s missing, which means they miss out on what’s right and how to be happy. Her keynote session addresses working with user-friendly people, getting along with people who are not user-friendly, and how to think positively about people and money. Positive thinking and affirmations can help us put together a plan: thoughts followed by actions can lead to results.
