3:25 – Something is changing in the world of work and money. I used to be that you’d graduate, get a job, save, and retire. That isn’t the case any longer.
6:15 – I was building a brand and not a business. I was so busy I don’t even remember the 2012 holidays. I was at a fork in the road where I could quit or do it for real. So I made a big decision and hired a coach and started building my business.
7:10 – When I noticed that my fears about money were coming up in my business and in my peers and my readers, that’s when I realized there’s something here that I need to look at. There’s a piece of the puzzle here that needs to be addressed – money.
8:50 – Entrepreneurship forces us out of our money comfort zones and forces us to heal stuff around money. There are a lot of emotions, psychology, and beliefs about money that we need to deal with.
11:00 – I made $5 my first month as a freelance writer and it was the best $5 I ever made because I did it doing something that I loved.
12:55 – I thought money was finite and that how much I could make was decided by someone else. Now I realize that there’s always a way to make more money.
15:30 – As an employee I was still disconnected from the revenue of the business. I would get my same pay check every two weeks no matter what. As an entrepreneur, how much money you can take out is directly tied to how much money you can bring in.
16:05 – As an entrepreneur, you really need to get your relationship with money straight.
19:00 – Early on, realizations about my money blocks felt very big. Now I can identify my issues and resolve them more quickly because I’ve practiced it and I trust myself more now.
21:30 – I don’t get as crazy as I used to, but I still have my bad days. Yoga and meditation really help me real myself back in.
23:30 – Now when stuff comes up, I don’t panic or get stressed, I just recognize it and meditate for a while knowing that it’s going to get resolved.
27:00 – Because I trust that I’m here to do great work, I know that all the fear will work itself out.
28:00 – Fear and worry over money usually trace back to issues of self worth.
28:20 – A daily exercise for self-worth adapted from Kate Northrup’s book Money, A Love Story.
31:00 – I see boundaries as my best friend. The difference between high performers and workaholics.
33:30 – Overloading yourself is a tendency for some entrepreneurs. It’s important to focus on taking care of yourelf and taking care of business.
34:53 – We’re told the more we do the more money we’ll make. It’s not true.
36:10 – Put yourself first. If you don’t take care of yourself, it will hurt your business.
37:22 – If you’re doing everything you could be doing in your business, and you think you’re doing it right and it’s still not working, there’s something internal going on that you need to look at.
