Hi, I’m Rosie.
I work at the intersection of high-powered finance, public policy, and human flourishing. I speak all over the world about a wild combination of topics: loving your money, Burning Man culture, and how I personally quit the American caste system that keeps racism alive.
In the US, I serve as a board member of the New America Alliance, a national organization advocating for diverse and women investment fund managers, and I work as a contractor for Registered Investment Advisors. I have a mega passion for investing in the public stock market, and in 2020 I enthusiastically earned a more than 222% return on my public equities portfolio, which I self-manage.
I've been meditating daily for 7 years, and am a practitioner of The Miracle Morning®, and a big fan of the Whole30® food reset.
Outside of the World of Money, I guide women and men and everyone in between through programs that make massive life transformation possible.
I created the Team Success private SocialCommunity, and the Quantum Leap! and Women’s Team personal transformation programs.
I started What Comes Now, a show about books and leadership, covering everything that brings people together or pulls them apart.
What Comes Now LIVE is an event series that interviews amazing leaders who are all people of color from all walks of life.
I wrote a framework about stakeholder and constituent engagement.
The von Lila Framework is the powerful catalyst to foster engagement and participation toward liberty and equity for all.
The Framework was written through research spanning the globe, and my 21 years of generating participatory culture, working with Burning Man, and studying what goes into the making of highly engaged creative cultures.
“Simple. Elegant. Powerful. The von Lila Framework starts with the right questions.”
Head of Strategy and Research, Deloitte Center For The Edge
Even if you never thought it possible, you can have a great relationship with your money. Through my wild journey from near bankruptcy to avid investor, I've learned how to break free from money ignorance, and make money work for me. I lead the day-long Your Income Generation Game seminar for those who are ready to stop surviving and begin flourishing financially. Not only is it fabulous...it's FUN!
Here are some highlights from which I draw stories I share with audiences around the world:
- Fun fact: Rosie has attended Burning Man 19 times and has worked with Burning Man headquarters since 2013 -- she currently serves as a correspondent for the Burning Man LIVE podcast, and is considered a historian of Burning Man culture.
- Speaking of podcasts, she created and hosts the What Comes Now podcast, which focuses on books, leadership, and everything that brings us together or divides us.
- Perpetually entrepreneurial, Rosie created the von Lila Framework for Stakeholder Engagement, and through that she has been invited as a guest to the U.S. Pentagon multiple times, and as a guest lecturer at the U.S. National Defense University.
- In the spirit of human flourishing, she leads the Quantum Leap! personal transformation program, and the Your Income Generation Game seminar.
- Most recently, for fun and fabulousness, she started the Team Success social community which centers on the idea that anyone can overcome their circumstances to live a life of their own making.
