What Money Loves

October 23rd, 2014

I always know when I’m doing something in my business that I shouldn’t be doing.

Not in the sense of feeling like I’m doing something wrong by the WORLD’S standards (I’m pretty much always breaking the rules in that regard!) but more in the sense of doing something wrong by ME.

Not being true to myself.

Not standing in authenticity.

Not working from a place of ALIGNMENT.

When I’m in that kind of icky and misaligned place, things feel like a struggle. Money seems to be fighting with me, then pushing me over and running away. People seem to be generally more annoying to deal with. Things start to go a little off in the rest of my life.

Everything just gets –

Messy.

And slow.

And FRUSTRATING.

And the more I try to wade my way out of it, the more stuck I seem to become.

Eventually, I acknowledge that this thing I was telling myself I HAD to do, or really SHOULD do, or COULD simply ‘put up with’ is actually a kind of sabotage.

Eventually, I remember that whenever money is flowing and I’m feeling good it’s because I’m totally “in my zone” in all areas.

I’m writing from a place of being in my zone –

I’m speaking that way –

And I’m selling that way –

It really is a pretty simple recipe for success, but yet for some reason, and especially everytime I’m shifting into new expansion within my business, I seem to end up back in that place of Fighting To Make Things Work. Knowing even as I GO there that it’s not going to work out (it can’t!) but yet stubbornly insisting on doing it anyway!

At least these days I seem to be more aware of my foolishness, more able to


How to Make Money When You Feel Stuck, Scared, and Can’t Seem to Catch a Break

October 21st, 2014

How ’bout we just start as we mean to go on here and be honest right from the get go –

If your dominant feeling around money and success and what your chances of breaking through this week is anything along the lines of –

Fear Anxiety Uncertainty Self doubt Feeling stuck

Then guess what? You are NOT going to make money. Not today, not ever … and if you DO somehow manage to break through and get some moolah flowing then you’ll either sabotage and rid yourself of it through a myriad of unplanned expenses or mishaps or else it will just, well, stop.

Long story short?

You can’t create wealth when your belief is that YOU CAN’T CREATE WEALTH.

I KNOW. Shocker, right?!

But yet don’t tell me that you haven’t been frantically running your toushy off to try and Make Shit Happen and Get Things Done, telling yourself that if you just do enough! Push enough! Launch enough! Try enough! that it HAS to work.

There is no rule that says just because you put time and effort in you’re going to get a result. Well … you’ll get a result all right, but no – pushing and TRYING harder to make money without dealing with the underlying shit that is STOPPING you making money is kind of like going to the gym 3x a week and then binge eating for 3 hours a night each evening. Not. going. to. work. But yet – people still manage to kid themselves with this kind of behavior in all areas of life – business being a PRIME example.

Would you like to know what there IS a rule about? And this is for real –

When you FULLY believe you can create true wealth …

And you believe you …


How To Make It Easy (and why that’s ok)

October 20th, 2014

I think that when you start out in business there’s a certain set of assumptions you have about how it has to be.

Stuff like having to put in the time and effort, having to go into the hole a little (or a lot!) before you become profitable, having to invest your energy into learning stuff that doesn’t come easy (hello evil tech tasks), doing the often small and fiddly tasks to just get things working, going through the inevitable trial and error process it takes to find what you really want to do, the list could go on and on!

But sooner or later (assuming you actually stick with things and don’t try to do anything stoopid like put a deadline on when you have to have ‘made it’ by, or how you have to get there!) there comes a time when things kinda ARE working.

You’re making money – sure it’s pretty much never as much as you COULD be or perhaps would like to be making but it’s coming in.

You’re getting great results for your clients.

People know who you are.

And you’ve even figured out the whole WordPress thing … kinda!

Your hard work has, in short, paid off, and even though the journey never ends you know you’ve much to be proud of and much to be grateful for.

This is the time when, if you’re anything like me or the many many other driven and A-type women entrepreneurs out there, you’re most likely to royally screw yourself through some kind of sabotage or upper limit issue.

You’ll find ways to make it harder …

You’ll fix what wasn’t broken … (and possibly break it in the process!)

You’ll resist leveraging your existing talents and skills never mind stuff you’ve already created and instead …


The World Needs You to Be You

October 15th, 2014

I had this dream for so long –

It was really more of a calling.

The more I resisted it, the more it spoke to me –

But yet for some reason I still couldn’t manage to listen! Because in spite of the calling, and the pulling, and the constant voice inside my head telling me that this was my THING, this was what I was meant to do, this was what I HAD to do, all I heard was –

You can’t. You shouldn’t. People don’t really want that. People don’t really want you. (At least not THAT way). And besides, what’s the point?

Have you ever had a calling to do something completely different, to be someONE completely new?

And have you listened, or have you done the ‘sensible’ thing and continued on your path to success the way you’d already planned, the way it seems you should, the way that simply makes SENSE?

A funny thing about living your purpose –

YOU might see it as a hugely big deal to get paid for THAT, that nobody would want to hear it from YOU, that you can’t, you shouldn’t, and you don’t know how anyway!

But somebody out there is already making money doing what YOU say you can’t -

And somebody out there is making a difference in the way that you were MOST called to do –

And if you’re not careful, then somebody out there will get to go to bed night after night certain that they are living their destiny –

And it won’t be you.

41 THINGS SHARED IN A ROOMFUL OF MILLIONAIRES

September 26th, 2014

CERTAINTY.

Imagine if you knew, for certain, that you could make exactly the income you desire, do exactly the work you’re most called to do, leave exactly the legacy you most want to leave, and be exactly the YOU who you most want to be.

Well, good news. I’m here to tell you that you can have it all, you can have it exactly on your terms, and you can start now. But if you want it? You’re going to have to be willing to take it, and it will NOT look how you think it might.

I’m blessed to have spent 4 days out of the past week in a room with some of the world’s leading entrepreneurs and game-changers. Of 39 in the room, 23 can call themselves millionaires … I’m proud to say I snuck into that group of 23!

We not only spent hours in conference discussing LIFE MASTERY over the course of our time together but also spent time with our families – dinner parties each evening, karaoke, a Luau, a day on a 70-foot catamaran, snorkelling with sea turtles, and even a cheeky night out … all in all an amazing weekend, and in many ways I still pinch myself to have created a life where I can call people in a group like that even my acquaintances, let alone friends!

But here’s the thing – you might think that when a group of the worlds’ top entrepreneurs get together the discussions around sales, and marketing and ‘what’s working’ abound.

No. Niet. Nein. Nicht so.

You would be wrong.

Let me give you a hint, a teaser, if you will –

You think that the reason you’re not making the money you want, living the life you want, making the DIFFERENCE you want to …
