This episode came from an Instagram Live I did with my friend, Richelle Ouellette. Richelle is my go-to resource on all things money-related. She’s someone who understands what it means to become friends with your bank account so that you can have a life of abundance and build a life of financial independence.
We talk about entrepreneurship, money, and mindset. We also discuss the Start from Scratch Summit — an online summit all about helping you with money and growing your income.
“Just because the world or the society that's around us says that something should be some way does not mean we have to actually let it be that way. You are the cause in your own life; you get to decide if those stories are not for you." ~ @avanimiriyala
There’s nothing more important than mindset when trying to reach that new segment of your business. If you want to get more out of life or business, you need to step into being the person who has more. You need to act like the person who has more and the next level will follow.
You have more data points than ever before. Use them! You know how much everything is going to cost and how many projects you have on your plate. Keep track of this, budget, and start laying it out (it doesn’t have to be perfect) so you have a sense of the state of your business.
Even using basic software like Google Sheets is a great way to get all of the numbers of your business out of your head and onto “paper”. This allows you to use your brain for creativity and growing your business. Your brain is your biggest asset—take care of it by freeing it up.
Just because everyone says something should be a certain way, doesn’t mean it has to be that way for you. You are the motivating factor in your life and can chart your own path regardless of what’s happening in the world.
