How can one of my BIGGEST MONEY BREAKTHROUGHS help you. Discover how…
We all have roadblocks, obstacles and challenges that we have to overcome. They are often our greatest teachers in unexpected and beautiful ways. I can certainly speak from experience.
I feel compelled to share with you one of my own personal transformations around money. From my heart to your heart, here it is.
When I started my business in 2004, I did not have a clue what it was like to run a successful business. I had a college degree in Social Work and had zero business experience. I finally made the decision to walk away from my current position of 5 years, as a fund raiser, and speaker for a charity, so that I could follow my passion.
With no business experience, I had one thing I could count on. It was my absolute love of public speaking and an undeniable burning desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others. However, that knowledge alone wasn’t going to create the successful business I desired.
As a new business owner, it became clear very quickly that I had huge issues when it came to talking about my services, especially the prices. I thought for sure everyone would think I was aggressive and pushy if I mentioned how I could help them and what the investment was. I was totally unsure and uncomfortable in this area of my business.
One day my negative money issues showed up in a big way. So much so that it literally transformed my life and my business forever.
Several years ago, I was attending a three day event that was focusing on money and mindset. I seemed like it was the perfect place for me to be. I registered for the event so I could overcome my money roadblocks that were standing in my way of creating a successful business.
I got the outcome that I intended, however it didn’t happen in the way that I thought it would.
The company who was running this event turned it into a pitch fest for their services and it lasted 3 very long days. About every 2 hours they were talking about another program or service they offered. I was so tempted to leave, however I invested my money and time to be there so I was going to make the most out of it.
Every time they offered something else, I could feel my entire body tense up. Each time they started talking about another new program, I got more upset and super uncomfortable.
Have you ever felt this way when someone was talking about their services?
For the first day and a half of this 3 day event, I literally sat in my seat with my arms crossed. I was about ready to leave and then it happened. I got my MONEY BREAKTHROUGH.
It was a life altering and truly profound moment when …
I heard this still small voice in my head say “You are never going to be comfortable with promoting one of your programs or services, if you are uncomfortable with them promoting their services.”
Wow! Let me repeat that. “You are never going to be comfortable with promoting one of your programs or services, if you are unconformable with them promoting their services.” That really hit a cord with me because it was absolutely true.
I got the message on every level of my being. What I was feeling about them sharing their services was negatively impacting my business on all levels from the financial success to the number of people I was going to help. From that one experience, I made a major adjustment in my money mindset that has blessed me and the thousands of people that I have helped.
Does my experience resonate with you?
Are you seeing a pattern in your life or your business?
Could this be the money breakthrough that you needed too?
Because of that powerful moment and my commitment to investing in myself and my business, I have had many more breakthroughs. It just gets better and better.
As long as I am always willing to stretch myself out of my comfort zones, I can confidently say there is always another powerful lesson, just like this one, in my future ☺
