Are you walking around in ill fitting money shoes?

I t’s time to get clear on your pricing, get the perfect pair of money shoes and make the money you desire!! I first read about the concept of badly fitting money shoes in Danielle LaPortes wonderful book ‘The Fire Starter Sessions’. In the book she talked about her friend who felt uncomfortable earning a certain amount of money because it just felt like too much. Throughout my career as a financial adviser, I tried on many pairs of shoes, both money ones and actual ones…. Yes, I like shoes (a lot) but that’s a post for another day. Some felt more comfortable...

F irst of all, congratulations if you have read beyond the title of this post because for those of you who are truly resistant to looking at your finances, your unconscious would have made sure that you wouldn’t even notice this post and if you did notice it, you would automatically have made the decision that this wasn’t something that you needed to worry about right now.

For lots of us, the idea...

Money and the Subconscious

L istening to the news recently and hearing about the latest celebrity bankruptcy prompted me to start thinking about her and so many like her who quickly accumulate wealth and then lose it all, only to find themselves back in their old familiar situation of money angst and struggle. We hear stories of lottery winners who lose everything within a few years of the big win! Is there a pattern here?

Are our thoughts stopping the flow of money into our lives?

M oney affects everything in our lives … the holidays we take, the quality of the clothes that we wear, the food that we eat, the house we live in, the free time that we have available to spend time doing things we truly love. We assign so much power to this medium of exchange … Power that influences our health, our relationship with loved ones, the social circles we move in.  Ultimately, money has the power to shape our entire lives … if we let it!
