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 […]
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! […]
When it comes to basic money management most of us know what we are ‘supposed’ to do, you know the basics; spend less than you earn – save for an emergency – and invest for your future.
However, establishing ‘good’ habits around money is easier said than done, for a whole lot of reasons!
Managing your money and other important things in your life (like an exercise or eating healthy program) takes discipline. And guess what, discipline isn’t a natural state for everyday or everyone. Oh, and let’s add the guilt and shame that you carry […]
“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 […]
