Living in Israel as a new immigrant? Thinking of moving to Israel – making Aliyah? Today’s interview is for you. You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m Yael Trusch, Your Host, Welcome to the Show. Today I have Rifka Lebowitz.
Before I brag about Rifka and introducer her to you, I want to remind all of you that The Bitachon Boost Retreat is happening this Sunday. I hope you’ve all registered and will be there. Early bird pricing was extended till after Tisha B’Av, as per some of your requests. But, the price will go up tonight Monday at midnight EST. So, if you haven’t grabbed your spot, do so now. Our private facebook group will also open this week, where we will start the conversation and getting ready for our retreat. And as I said last week, we will continue working on implementing the tools that we learned throughout the 30 days after the retreat, right there together inside the group.
So The Bitachon Boost Retreat is more than a 1 day experience. My colleagues and I want to make sure that you really take what we teach you to heart and feel supported in implementing it and have the needed encouragement and support. And what better way than with a community of women, who like you have been part of this retreat and want to make Bitachon actionable and a part of their daily lives.
So, join us, on Sunday July 25 from 10-6 pm EST. We will have so many hands on activities, you will be super engaged, and even if you know that at a certain time, or for a period of the day, you might need to log off, rest assured that being there for some of it will be worth it and that you will have all the replays for life, as well as access to the workbook, the materials, the tools, and of course the community element. Yes, I’m encouraging you to register even if you don’t know if you can be there all day! Because I know how powerful and life changing this event will be and I’d rather you be there for some of it live and supplement with the replays AND become a part of the whole community experience, than sit and wait for another opportunity. This IS the opportunity ladies! Grab it and grab it with your early bird price of $127 by midnight EST Monday at jewishlatinprincess.com/retreat.
Ok let’s talk about today’s guest. Rifka Lebowitz is on a mission to change the Israeli financial image. No longer the place it was 30 years ago, today Israel is a thriving nation – and the standard of living is following suit. As a successful financial consultant, Rifka has helped thousands of individuals challenge money perceptions and develop the tools they need to succeed financially in Israel. She is the founder of the 30,000+ member facebook group Living Financially Smarter in Israel, the author of Smarter Israeli Banking, and the creator of the Financially Smarter Couple online course. She is a popular speaker both in Israel and abroad.
And today I have the pleasure of speaking with Rifka. What motivated her to help olim chadashim become financially smarter in Israel? What are the things that we need to have in place to succeed financially in Israel, and is it all doomsday? Are there success stories? What differs between those who make it, and those who don’t? No, it’s not the amount of money they came with necessarily, as you will soon hear. What was Rifka’s own journey as an entrepreneur in Israel, like? What kind of financial preparation, or runway, did she have, in order to leave a stable job in the banking sector, and go on her own? The answer might shock you. All of this and more, with the wonderful Rifka Lebowitz.
