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 […]
What do you believe about being successful?
What story have you told yourself about your present and future relationship with money?
Is it doomed or are you living a kick-ass life?
Here’s the thing that I say over and over again to my clients….
“You are where you are based on what you know… so what. When you know better you’ll do better!”
Yet most don’t get help for 2 reasons;
- They don’t know what to ask or look for
- They’re ashamed, embarrassed, feel guilty, or stupid.
And do they talk about it?
Nooo … it’s right up there with the other popular taboo subjects; sex, politics and […]
How do you get what you want in life?
Last time I talked about why you don’t reach your money goals. If you missed it, you can read it here.
It basically comes down to changing your money mindset, tapping into your inner ‘bad-ass’ and get into the drivers seat towards your future.
I know, easy for me to say… and I can hear you now;
“How do I do that?” “I’ve set money goals in the past and never reached them.”
(Like I said in the last post – there are many reasons ‘why’ … you read them here)
I get it! […]
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 […]
Letting go of the edge…
Ever hear that inner voice telling you there’s more to what you have?
Do you listen to it? …The one that tells you to go for it…and believe.
You should listen, its chatter that matters!
Time to examine the truth about where you are.
Take this little self-assessment quiz to get an idea of what’s true for you:
:: Do you procrastinate on doing things that you know will move you forward?
:: Do you have fear and concerns that prevent you from getting ahead?
:: Do you exist in a fantasy bubble playing mind games with yourself and […]
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) […]
“Attitude is everything, so pick a good one!”
“Is your glass half full or half empty?”
“A bad attitude is like a flat tire, if you don’t change it you’ll never go anywhere”
“Change I can’t into I can and pretty soon you will say… I did!”
We have all seen these quotes hundreds of times, but do we always heed this advice?
Our minds are so powerful to help us control our feelings and our actions, which inevitably becomes our results. It’s a good thing, well that is if you are happy with the way your life is.
Are you happy with the way you think about money? Are you in charge of your financial destiny? Do you have fun managing your money and setting goals?
Well if you said ‘No’ to any of the above, you may be hanging on to some money beliefs, habits or attitudes that are stopping you from having fun! Money is an emotionally volatile issue for most women. It’s probably the most complicated relationship we have – and the one that most controls our lives … if we let it!
Many of us hate organizing our financial […]
