What is your relationship to money?

It’s Black Friday today, what are you up to?

  • working?
  • avoiding the long lines and shopping from home?
  • reading this email on your smart phone while standing in line?
  • not even thinking about shopping?
  • wondering how much space is left on your credit cards?
  • enjoying time with friends and family?

I have mixed feelings about Black Friday. I appreciate the opportunity to get a good deal but I don’t like crowds or long lines. I haven’t been shopping on a Black Friday since I was in high school. I remember my stepdad reminding me, “There are always more bargains than there is money to buy them.”

Your reactions to Black Friday probably have a lot to say about your relationship to money, too. Are you a saver? A spender? A tightwad?

Is your relationship to money impacting your business success?

How does your relationship to money show up in your business on a regular basis. Are you paying attention to money? Ignoring it? Constantly wishing you had more?

Money has a certain energy and tends to take on a life and character of it’s own. We have to make friends with money and understand it in order to make more of it. It took me longer to understand this than I care to admit. I was always focusing on tasks, marketing, sales… all important elements of a successful business but I forgot the most important task – to pay attention to money!

Once I understood what numbers to pay attention to and started to focus on money, I was able to grow my business, pay down debt and feel like a success. But I also still had to focus on marketing and sales and all the other aspects of running a publishing company. What I realized was that I was in the wrong business for me. Publishing is a deadline driven industry and it was driving me away from what mattered most: time with my family.

Is money holding you back from creating a vibrant new vision for you business?

I truly believe that what we focus on grows! In my private coaching practice this year I have found that money stops women in their tracks – from fear, dismay, worry, anxiety… Money issues cause problems in our business and in our personal relationships. Understanding our relationship to money is one of the crucial steps to business success. My mission for 2014 is to help you love money and make more of it, so that you can create the perfect lifestyle for you and your family.

    Great post, Minette. I totally agree that our relationship with money is what drives the allowance of it to flow to us more easily. I like your idea of relating to money as a dear friend. Thank you for this suggestion and I am going to reflect on this more in order to be able to put it into practice!
