I was spending money that I didn’t have on things that were not that important to me and was telling myself that next month would be better, next month my business would “break through.” This went on for months. I was in school, I’d quit my stable non-profit job and was focusing on growing my business. My numbers – both income and expenses – weren’t good and so I avoided looking at them.
My anxiety has been up and down since realizing the impact of the pandemic. I’m touched by our community as we take the necessary precautions, socially isolate and cancel events to flatten the curve as much as possible.
Your intuition will lead you to making business decisions that make you more money and give you more of your time back. They aren’t the fast cash decisions but decisions that will deeply support your business financially in the long term and also how much fun you can have working in it.
Let’s talk about sex, money & power :)! For those of you in Toronto, we have some amazing opportunities to explore these deep juicy topics. See more info below! And for those of you elsewhere – the good news is the replay of the money blocks webinar will be available until Saturday at midnight EST. You can get the replay here.
Aja Dang’s wake up call was in 2017 when her beloved Cockapoo, Luke, needed emergency surgery and if her boyfriend hadn’t had the money, she would have lost her dog. She was 30 years old and in $200K of crippling student loan debt. Up to that point, she hadn’t really believed that she could pay it off, didn’t know what to and basically was trying not to think about it.
Your money beliefs have very little to do with money. They have to do with things like self-worth, survival, and feeling like a fraud.
Some of my clients’ money beliefs are, “It’s my duty to take care of everyone and everything (and not get paid that much for it.)” “When I was a child, I was neglected and my parents didn’t come when I needed them. Now clients won’t come. They’re not coming. It’s not going to work.”
Self-sabotage can affect any area of your life and sometimes you’ll find it happening to your business.
It can look like:
Over-Busyness Being too busy to respond to new customers in a timely manner and then forgetting to reply at all.
When a workshop doesn’t work the first time, completely changing topics instead of looking at what didn’t work. Or changing a marketing strategy before you’ve had time to tweak it, make it better and make it work for your ideal client.
Doing whatever potential clients ask you for as opposed to creating a vision and a program that you absolutely love and believe in.
Not launching or putting your new product or website out there because it’s “not ready yet” as opposed to launching even before it’s perfect to test it and make it better.
You’re building a business that you’re going to love working in, that creates financial stability and abundance for you and that deeply impacts your customers. And intuition can help you do exactly that.
There’s one crucial step you need to take to really make your intuition effective when running your business and so I’m running a webinar on this exact topic this Monday at 1 pm EST.
