Is Your Future You Calling?

I can distinctly remember the day I met my future self.

I was laying on the proverbial “bathroom floor.”

OK maybe more like crying in my living room on my sofa…but you get the gist: I was down and out!

It was a voice outside of me that said, ‘Enough is enough. You are no longer going to remain a victim to your money fears.”

That voice was stern, yet fair. Loving, yet was a kick in the butt. It was my money wake-up call.

It was my “future me” calling out to me. OR better yet, CALLING ME OUT!

This was about 5 months after I lost my job and was unemployed during the housing crisis of 2008. I had gotten the notice that the bank was going to foreclose on my condo, and I was an emotional mess. Not to mention in a financial mess.  

Yet, somewhere inside of me was a calling, a rally cry, a “I am no longer going to tolerate living like this!”

Your future you is the part of you that is wise, speaks from an intuitive place. Directs...

10 Financial Habits That'll Change Your Life

Habits are funny little creatures. Some are good for you, some are bad for you . . . and some are like gum on your shoe–you just can’t get rid of them no matter what you try.

Habits are the patterns we automatically perform day in, day out, without much awareness. They’re learned behaviors that become a strategy to making our way through this thing called life, whereby we keep repeating them to create a certain result or “reward.”

“Your balance in your bank account is basically the sum of your habits”

If you want to change your financial picture, change your habits.

To do this you need “buy-in” from your already reward-craving self.

Your habits serve you. Until you link a good habit with a similar “reward” or feeling a bad habit gives you, your smaller self won’t be bought in and you’ll sabotage yourself.

As you read through these 10 financial habits that will change your life, pick the top one that you...

Here's Your Permission Slip to Make More Money

There’s a very special and secret permission slip that only you can give yourself to make more money . . . and that permission slip goes something like this,

“I give myself permission to make more money.”

Yep, it’s that simple.

Yet, is it easy to do that? Hell no, or we’d be making more money.

What do you believe about making money that isn’t allowing you to give yourself permission about making more money? (Do not pass this question until you answer it.)

Consider these questions:

  • What might your mom say about you allowing more prosperity in?
  • Your dad?
  • Your best friend?
  • Your old boss?
  • Your new boss?
  • Your husband?
  • Your wife?
  • Your ex?
  • What will you have to give up in order to make more money? (time, friends, flexibility, blaming others and instead taking 100% responsibility)
  • What about money bothers you?
  • What about wealthy people piss you off?

Somewhere in that line of questioning is your core belief that you have about making more...

How to Make Enough Money: The Myth of More

More money, more love, more time. 

More abundance, more clarity, more ease, more grace, more confidence, more flow. 

More joy, more freedom, more creativity, more happiness, more communication, more courage. 

Simply stated, MORE MORE

“More” has become ever-present in our society. 

I get it. I work in the realm of money. Most people I speak and work with want more money, more abundance, more time and—to be honest—I’m so over it. 

Why?

Because much of this MORE-dom is based in lack. As in “I want more money, because I don’t have enough now. I have to chase it more to get more. I have to work more to make more.” And what do they find? There’s always more to be had. Always. And how do you know what more is if you can’t claim what’s enough now?  

When’s it enough? When’s enough, ENOUGH? 

Today, I’m here to reclaim...

Money Mistakes: 3 Financial Mistakes I Made and How You Can Learn From Them

This blog contains my interpretation of the copyrighted work of Bruce D Schneider and the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC).

A statement that I was taught during coaching school was an iPEC Foundation Principle saying that baffled me for years. 

It was “You cannot make a mistake.”

What? I’ve made a ton of mistakes.

And then one day, it hit me . . .

“I cannot MAKE a mistake.” 

You Cannot Make a Mistake

Right! I can’t “make” a mistake. Meaning, I don’t go out intentionally looking to make a mistake–and you don’t either. 

Once I recognized that every experience has the opportunity–the seed–of a lesson in it, it automatically catapulted me into my own power. I then knew I wasn’t at the effect of what I did wrong. I now had the choice to choose to look at the “mistake” as an opportunity to grow. This is based on my interpretation of another iPEC...

Ain't It a Money Shame?

The most powerful way to increase your income from a mental, emotional, and physical standpoint is to acknowledge and release the shame that you associate with money.

There. I said it.

From my own personal experience and working with many people on their money “stuck-ness,” shame creates a thick cloud over your ability to grow your income. With awareness and acceptance of the intensity of shameful feelings and thoughts, you can quickly take control of your finances.

I promise.

Shame’s insidious. A subtle energy that takes hold of you and squelches your growth around money–big time–and perpetuates an unworthiness knot in us.

And . . . everyone has it.

Everyone I speak to, at all income levels (including myself) has or has had Money Shame. So no amount of money in your bank account’s going to “fix” that.

What is Money Shame?

Money Shame shows up as:

  • I’ve never been good with numbers.
  • I’m embarrassed to wear things I buy in...

How to Guarantee Results in Your Business and Income

An empowering, elevated money mindset–or any elevated mindset around a subject for that matter (think: energy, love, creativity, time)–starts with awareness and is cultivated through positive consistency.

Consistency almost always creates exponential growth when it’s positive, consistent action.

If you want a quantum leap in your chosen currency of life (love, time, money, energy, creativity) you must commit to consistent action. Not “constant” action as one of my mentors says, but consistent action.

Is your consistent action of avoiding looking at your credit card statements burying your head in the sand about your money?

Is your consistent action thinking, “There’s not enough to go around?”

Is your consistent action doing the same thing over and over, expecting something different to happen?

Here’s the truth: consistency can go both ways.

Take an honest look at who you’re being, what you’re thinking, and what...

Make Money Like a Woman

The world’s a better place when women are in financial control.

Women are stepping into stewardship around money like never before. Stepping in with their curiosity, their values, and their vulnerability and it’s making for a very compelling story of clarity and confidence in their lives–and in their bank accounts.

A Wall Street Journal article (paywall) states that, by 2022, women will control over 60% of the wealth in the United States.

And that’s a good thing.

Here are three reasons why:

Reason Number One

When it comes to decision making, women tend to use three decision-making tools in unison: intuition, emotion, and logic. This results in a more informed and deliberate decision within their home and in their businesses, whereas men tend to focus only on analytics.

Money isn’t linear and using a linear approach like logic doesn’t allow for the ebb and flow that is the energy of money. It’s not called “currency” for...
