Want to know the first step to having a better relationship with your money is?
“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
I love this quote from Albert Einstein and when it comes to money, we all make money mistakes.
Not only do we make mistakes but then we feel horrible about them and ourselves.
Can you relate? Have you ever struggled with being critical of yourself over a money mistake? Are you weighed down with regret over what you did or didn’t do? Do you keep thinking and thinking and thinking, going round and round wishing you’d done things differently?
Me too! To make it worse […]
Are you a woman and own your own business?
Did you know that 4 out of 5 businesses are started by women?
Although it is changing, the sad news is that women are still making less money (on average) than the guys. (But thankfully that gap is getting smaller!)
Running your own business is not for the faint of heart. It’s takes tenacity, grit, courage and commitment (and help!) to be successful.
Being President of my local Women’s Business Network, I see so many women struggle and eventually just give up and go back to being an […]
Grit, and lots of it. There is a fire in her belly that keeps her focused on what she wants, come hell or high water. She’s committed, focused and always ready and open to anything.
Does she fall down every now and then…you bet!
But she overcomes obstacles with an inner strength of knowing that ‘this too shall pass’ and knows that the lessons are learning and part of the journey.
She has balance in her life making time for herself, family and friends.
She sets goals. Goals are dreams with a plan for realization.
She is […]
Sure, goals are important (and critical to your success) but they are not enough. There is more at work than meets the eye. If you’re not where you want to be and ‘goal setting’ hasn’t been working for you, then keep reading!
Here are the probable reasons why;
The ‘Big Kahuna’; You haven’t bought into your ‘why’ you want it.
Sure, you may have said that you want to make more money to travel or pay off […]
Talking money of course!
A big reason why many couples argue about money involves differing values and conflicting goals which leads into a battle of; “I’m right … your wrong!”
Here’s why this happens: most couples do not have “Money Talks”. Sure they talk about money in varying degrees – but they don’t get into the ‘nitty gritty’ of their numbers and how the other person feels.
Let’s face it, when cashflow is good, money arguments usually are few – if any.
But when cashflow changes (usually due to less money coming in or expenses going up) […]
Better with age, yes, just like a fine wine! But all those years ago, (if you are over 50) when you were watching Happy Days, did you imagine you’d be stressing about retirement? We grew up on Barbie and Ken, the Beatles and wearing bell bottoms – and now some of us are grandparents! Is it a transition you’re ready for?
Baby boomers (those of us born 1946-1964) have been the most marketed to generation in history. After the WWII there was a huge growth and boom in electronics, gadgets, and an exciting appeal […]
Here we are – the beginning of a new year and there is the usual emphasis on Facebook, podcasts, blogs and even your email inbox, encouraging you to set New Years resolutions and goals.
Okay, so here is how you may react;
- You do nothing
- You’ll get pissed off with all hype and the pressure of setting goals and resolutions… enough already!
- You half-ass state what you are going to do… ie: make more money, get out of debt, lose weight, work out …
- You embrace all the information and you are motivated to […]
If there is a list of things to not make a mess of, your future has to be high on the list. Yet so many of us including myself have a made quite the mess in the past. But that is the key…it’s the past and you are always at choice for your next move. Every decision that you make is creating your ultimate destiny. Everything you do and who you really are determines what you will ultimately achieve.
When you drop all the excuses and but’s, should have’s and could have’s that are holding you back from living your dreams, […]
