Why pie?

Because we love pie.

Because who doesn’t love pie?!
Because pie fixes everything!

Prosperity Pie Shoppe is a soul nourishing, community cafe where people gather around yummy pie and finely crafted beverages while soaking up the sweet calming energy and feisty financial conversations. All this while helping others! The profits from the pie shop fuel the studio’s mission of providing access to money education classes for those who may not ordinarily have the opportunity to participate in and benefit from them.

Where can you find us?

  • Multnomah Village in Southwest Portland, Oregon
  • A vibrant, artistic business district that is redefining itself by bridging the gaps for marginalized groups with increased density, new businesses and established restaurants and retail shops
  • Lots of foot traffic brings hundreds of people by the space everyday
  • A very desirable, lively and comfortable place for locals to connect and tourists to visit

Sacred Money Studios is attractive to young and old, couples, families and small business owners that frequent the Village or visit from other parts of Portland and outside the area. It is a perfect location for this new concept to take root, as we have many long time residents who are creative, engaged and seeking ways to improve their lives and communities.

She learned about money the hard way – through trial and error – until becoming a financial advisor 14 years ago.

Luna lives to pass her knowledge on to those that need it by helping them step out of their own limiting beliefs and boosting their sense of self-worth to imagine a world that is plentiful and supportive. She does this by bringing people face to face, taking the financial conversation offline and into a blossoming community where healing and thriving can take place.

Amy-Dier2

Amy is a social media consultant, relationship builder, videographer, and trainer for Indrani’s Light Foundation, a non-profit with a mission to end gender-based violence. She relishes her new life of promoting businesses, engaging audiences and bringing joy to those she serves. Amy has a special passion for those who have suffered bankruptcy and truly understands the trauma such loss creates. Sacred Money Studios aligns with her desire to create an environment of joy and love for all members of our community who desire to heal and grow their relationship with money.

“None of us were born with a money gene and we’re here to tell you it’s not too late. You can learn how to be smart and savvy with money. Your creative spirit is an asset (not a liability). You are not selfish or greedy for wanting an ease-filled and flourishing relationship with money.

We know that when people heal their money issues they can in turn believe in themselves and grow their self-worth. Once they become better money managers, stabilizing their financial lives, they will have more energy for their true work in the world. With more people claiming their true work, the world will be a better place for all”
