Hello Confident Ladies! This week we are talking "$$$ Mindset". I'd like to start you with a few questions:
// Do I have a $$ story?
// Is $$ helping me build and grow my business or holding me back from SUCCESS in my business?
// Do I repel $$ + clients away due to fear & insecurity?
// Do I value my services and charge what I am worth?
// Have I been practicing what I preach? Investing in MY OWN business? Or do I sit and wait for clients to pay me for my services without investing in MYSELF? (ouch!! I know this is a TOUGH one to ask, but very necessary!!)
After processing these questions I am going to give you some good old tough loving and share some tips that have worked for the clients that I work with:
1. Identify barriers. Is money not flowing into your business? Figure out what is blocking it from coming in.
2. Realize, there is ALWAYS enough $$ to go around. Just because that one client didn’t sign on with you or book your services, doesn’t mean more won’t.
3. Open hands to give are ALWAYS open to receive. The more you give with loving intention, the more comes back to you
4. KNOW that if you want clients to INVEST in your services, you MUST invest in yourself. I will talk more about this tomorrow. This one is HUGE.

Ok this one is HUGE. I hear so many business owners saying “no one wants to pay me for my services”. I get on all these Discovery Calls and people JUST want to pick my brain!!
First question I ask: "Have you paid people for services in your business? And do you respect other's time?"
Have you ever said, “Noooo, I’m just not ready to invest yet. Once I get three paying clients, book one wedding, a design project, etc. I will have the funds to invest”.
BOOM…. THIS is the issue! First of all, no getting on a Discovery Call with someone unless you know/like/trust and 99% want to work with them. It's a waste of YOUR and THEIR time and time is PRECIOUS in business. And second of all, clients are doing the SAME exact thing to you!
If you are not ready in invest even a teeny bit into your business, you are not ready to have a business and allow others to pay you. I know this sounds harsh my dears, but someone’s gotta say it. It saddens me SO much to see so many smart women running in circles waiting for a first client to invest.
Now you may be thinking, "it must have been easy for you, maybe someone helped you out financially". NOT at ALL. It was a STRUGGLE. I put THOUSANDS of dollars on my credit cards on top of the almost 6 figures of student loan debt I acquired.
NOT fun at ALL and scary as heck! But guess what? I didn’t want to wait one or two YEARS to have a successful business. I wanted a successful business YESTERDAY and knew I'd have to invest to get started. And guess what? I paid all that credit card debt off as I went along. And let me tell you, there was a LOT. I made it all back plus much much more my first year in business.
I am telling you this because I want to see you succeed and stop staying stuck in scarcity mindset loves!! You need to give to get.
Today I want to invite you to rate your $$$$ Mindset from a 1-10 based on the scale below.
SCARCITY 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ABUNDANCE
