The Black Belt Investor

Mary Hagerman

How is your relationship … with money?

If you’re like most people, it’s not as healthy as it could be. In her 30-year career as a financial advisor, Mary Hagerman has seen unhealthy attitudes about money warp and distort too many lives. She knew from personal experience that it didn’t have to be that way.

A practicing black belt in Karate, Hagerman believes that wellness comes not only from the usual places—eating right, exercise, love—but also from a clear-headed, honest relationship between yourself and your money.

Mirroring the stages of mastering Karate, Black Belt Investor walks you through the steps and practices to build a truly healthy relationship with money. Beginning as a financial white belt and progressing through each stage of financial fitness, you’ll learn to let go of bad habits. No longer will you agonize over a spouse’s spending, fret over a large purchase or worry about when or whether to invest in the market. Through the practices in Black Belt Investor, you will set aside dangerous and destructive emotions around money such as greed, fear, shame and jealousy.

Instead, as a Black Belt Investor, you will develop the self-knowledge, the discipline and the confidence to execute a long-term plan and embrace your financial journey.
