What do you think of this statement….
“I’ll be more happy when I have more money.”
Does this ring true for you?
Well it sure did for me in my younger years as a single Mom!
And usually we feel this way when we’re at rock bottom, stressed and unhappy, before we finally do something about it.
But that’s the hard way! And it’s not much fun either!
Associating happiness with money is super popular with graduates of the;
‘School of Blame and Excuses’.
When it comes to money, the truth is, that most don’t have a clear understanding of […]
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. […]
For the last 2 weeks I have been working with my mentor in regards to planning my year; from income, clients, marketing, distribution, customer service; overall looking at my services and products I offer.
It’s great work to do this review, but the best part is taking a powerful look back at 2017 and looking forward to making 2018 the BEST YEAR EVER!
I really love what I do! ♥
Well, something special just happened that has compelled me to share it with you.
As my client was leaving this morning, we were having a conversation about how to explain to others; what is it exactly, […]
I don’t know about you…but I feel like someone flicked the switch from summer to fall … overnight!
Holy cow we needed the rain, but I had to light the pilot on the fireplace and turn on the furnace!
For me, this is a signal to start planning my annual trip to Mexico!
(My view in a couple of months!)
Now sometimes people say to me; “It must be nice to go away every winter…”
To which I reply… “It is … and you can too […]
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…
- “My biggest financial struggle is being overwhelmed.”
- “My biggest issue is saving! Lord knows I try my best to put away as much money as I can. I am a saver & my husband is a […]
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 […]
“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 […]
