I’m sure that I lost a good two years of business growth just due to making poor money decisions.
At the time I didn’t see it that way. I saw my low bank account, a deep fear of incurring more debt, and I didn’t trust my ability to earn real money. So I made money decisions from that place.
It was a logical decision to be frugal and careful, however but was also a huge mistake.
I needed to invest wisely into my business and to step into a place of empowerment. Those poor money decisions also kept me financially poor and kept my business disabled.
Now I can see it all so clearly, but at the time I was in the mud so all could see was more mud.
When I woke up I began to search for the right mentors to help me and it was as though a ray of light shone into the darkness. I realized that while I was stuck in the mud, the rest of the world was moving and I was being left behind in my scarcity mind-set.
The last few years I’ve been making up for lost time. I am now mindful of where I spend money, but not operating from a “I can’t afford it” mentality.
I knew that in order to shift and grow my income I need to find joint venture partners and this meant, get off of my bum and go to events where I would meet the right people.
A few weeks ago I went to Midas camp with Andrea Lee. My friend Kathleen and I drove all the way to Vancouver BC, stayed in the fancy hotel and had a blast. Andrea is an amazing teacher, business woman and a heartfelt person.
I learned so many new empowering things for my business that I hardly know where to begin sharing.
I met tons of amazing people who are part of my tribe. I’m sure some of them will end up being joint venture partners in the future. I came home feeling energized and focused.
All in all I spent over $4,00 if I count the new year long program I signed up for. Will this have a return on investment and be worth it? As andrea says, “All business is an experiment,” so I don’t have that answer yet. What I do know is that I am more focused now, have huge support, and have even more good stuff to share with you, my clients.
If you are looking for a way to get this same energy and focus ( and you are a female come to my Wild Women Entrepreneur Retreat - an exclusive event for a small group of smart, but wild, women! Look at the website and then get back to me.
