077: That Crohn’s Life w/ Annelise Bretthauer

Annelise Bretthauer is a certified financial planner (CFP) professional living in Oregon. Diagnosed with dyslexia as a teen, she’s always turned to hard work to overcome adversity. But that hard work only paid off so much…until she got sick. In 2017, Annelise was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Faced with career overhaul and a choice between her passion and her health, she redesigned her life around her diagnosis to better serve both her body and her growing client list. In her own words, “I’ll be the first to tell you, I have not overcome the challenges of the disease but I continue to learn how to protect my body and pursue my passion at the same time.” With the launch of Rise Up Financial, she’s on a mission to integrate health and wellness into her clients’ finances, and believes that wellness should be a part of the planning process whether you are facing chronic disease…or not. The unforeseen twists and turns life has handed her have given her an understanding of how to ride life’s rollercoaster securely and confidently, and have taught her to manage finances to nourish her life. Her advocacy work has been growing steadily, and as she continues to spread her wings…we welcome her to Uninvisible Pod!

Tune in as Annelise shares:

  • that she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when she was 24
  • that she sought therapy early on in her diagnosis, and recognizes it as one of the best moves she’s made in her chronic illness journey
  • that she had to leave her job in order to heal her body — the 9-5 grind was not sustainable for her anymore
  • that she launched her own business in order to work around her body’s needs
  • that so much of healing is about finding your individual formula
  • that being stressed about finances is “no way to live”
  • her top tips for chronic illness patients looking to organize their finances
  • why it’s important to have a will and healthcare directives, especially if you’re a young Spoonie
  • the importance of mindset in the healing journey
  • her views on money: that it is to be used to live your life more intentionally — and that it can be used to nourish your life
  • why her job is to help clients to use their money to reduce stress and create joy
