How does fitness affect every aspect of your life? What does it mean to be mentally tough? Can progress be more important to your fitness and health journey than achieving perfection?
In this podcast episode, Melissa Vogel speaks with Zoe Abbott about fitness and finance.
Meet Zoe Abbott
Zoe Abbott is a Financial Success Consultant and entrepreneur who helps people achieve financial freedom and happiness. When she was young, she developed a bad relationship with her body and personal self-worth.
At the age of 25, she became a mom to a beautiful baby girl, but she was struggling financially and working multiple jobs to provide for her family. Zoe started her own business and rapidly grew it to multiple six-figure income levels, but she was still struggling with her physical and emotional health, weighing over 300lbs and in chronic pain.
She decided to make a change and apply the same commitment to the handling of her health. Over the past 2 years, she has lost 150lbs, she continues to grow her business, and most importantly she has helped thousands of individuals and families eliminate over 50 Million dollars of debt and set them on the path towards financial security and happiness.

Unlikely connections between fitness and finances
The systems that you use to save money are similar to the systems you work with every day to lose weight and build strength. With regards to counting calories, you want you to lose more calories than you eat in a day is the same principle as wanting to put more money in the bank than you are spending in order to build your savings.
Neither building your savings or building muscle happens overnight, with both you need to be consistent and persistent. Saving a little money every week or every month is the same as working out a little bit every day. Over time your efforts will compound, and you will begin to see and feel results.
Financial tips from Zoe
Mindset, how people think about money
People carry around toxic beliefs about money that limits their relationship with it. Having a constructive and healthy relationship with money leads to many more benefits than being afraid of or resenting money.
You have to be in that place where you want to change something or you’re willing to change something or you’re open to receive information about something and improve. There has to be that need, that desire to change has to be there. (Zoe Abbott)
Confronting the situation
Do not shy away from the situation at hand and learn to look comfortably at your finances. There are problems that can be solved simply by examining or writing down your finances because it requires you to be honest and aware.
Be goal orientated:
Have short- or long-term goals to follow that motivate you in your daily actions. Zoe has short-term goals; one to three years, mid-term goals; three to seven years, and long-term goals which are upwards of seven years.
Grow your reality to suit your dreams
Instead of being told that you need to curtail your dreams to suit your current situation, Zoe is passionate about getting people to understand that it does not to be that way, and you can grow your finances to suit your dreams.
Of course, being exorbitant in your spending will make any big change difficult, but you can work with your money in such a way that you can increase your standard of living instead of staying where you currently are.
