Lots of love,
Lots of love,
Talking money of course!
A big reason why many couples argue about money involves having different 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 […]
Have you ever struggled with feeling like everybody around you was succeeding financially – even people you feel aren’t as educated, qualified or talented as you?
Oh, have I been there!
One of my biggest “money blocks” was feeling I wasn’t getting what I deserved monetarily, and falsely believing everybody around me was.
At one point, I was seriously convinced all my colleagues were handed some secret handbook that told them how to get new clients and secret formulas to success – and somehow the universe conveniently forgot to give me mine.
It was frustrating, and degrading. […]
Money and success are like a game; you have to know the rules and practice.
So let me compare my favorite pastime – golf – to the game of money.
To be good in golf – there is no doubt that you have to “practice”. Consistent good rounds of golf and a low handicap are the rewards for good practice.
Most casual golfers don’t take the time to go for lessons or go to the driving range.
They play once in awhile and expect (and have very bad […]
What a fantastic summer I had!
Lots of golf, sun and fun.
But now it’s time to check back in with my goals and rock out the rest of the year!
A couple of nights ago, at my local Women’s Business Network, I talked about how women are allowing money problems to mess up their business (and life).
Money is a catch-all bucket of excuses and missed opportunities in our businesses … and lives for that matter. Because how you do money is how you do EVERYTHING. It ripples into all areas of your life.
Most of the ladies were nodding their head along when […]
Do you believe it or was your first reaction… “Yeah right, I don’t think so!”
For so many it can be hard, stressful, and depressing. It can be embarrassing which leaves you feeling shameful, guilty, stupid and hopeless. I know, I’ve had my own struggles.
Here are some of my clients’ biggest financial struggles that they’ve shared with me…
I am often asked for one simple step, a useful constructive action that you can take right now to make a difference when it comes to your money, regardless of your age or situation.
Here it is…
Are you committed to making some changes?
If you want different results then you will have to do things differently.
Commitment to change always precedes success with your relationship to money.
Until you’ve committed to what you want, goals are irrelevant, dreams are useless, and hopes are no more than a pipe dream.
Commitment inspires you!
It provides you with passion, energy and […]
Want to know the first step to having a better relationship with your money is?
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 […]
