How To Change Your Life Without Running Out of Money

With every life change comes fear.

And a big fear is that of having enough funds. We ask questions like..

How can I make a change in my life without going through a period of financial insecurity?

Given my current commitments, can I even find enough time to do this life changing stuff?

There is a pay gap between men and women, why do I get paid less for the same job?

I just can’t recklessly stop what I’m doing now… so…

How will I take care of my family/loved ones?

One of the biggest questions is…

How can I access enough money to be able to pursue my dreams?

I’ve seen thousands of people go though this cycle. And, there is a step-by-step process you can follow to make sure your dreams are funded and your loved ones are safe.

There’s five steps you can take to make sure your dreams are funded:

1. Go from an “employee” mindset to an “entrepreneur” mindset.

Instead of needing permission or thinking that your “time is money”. Realize that you don’t need a job… you just have to find a way to get financial resources to flow to you. Key to this? Look at a problem in the world you would love to solve and then start solving it. One of the big secrets of the entrepreneur mindset is that we know where there are problems, there is a business opportunity.

Look at your current expenses with a “bootstrap” mindset. Cut costs that don’t serve your new direction and invest in trainings and tools to help you get to your goals faster.

2. Set a first version realistic new income goal.

Most people don’t even have this, which makes the rest impossible. Know your first version goal. Sure, you want to make millions perhaps. But, what if you could start with $5 or $10k a month? Even an extra $2k a month, how would that change your life? If you don’t have a goal, you won’t hit it. You’ve got to get to $5,000 before you get to one million.

3. Build your Tribe by adding value (and sharing inspiration) consistently online.

It really is that simple. When you consistently share and help online, you are seen as an authority. It’s no different that what you’re already doing, except you share it online. You’re already good at helping others, now let’s put that to work in a new and more profitable way.

4. Small Numbers Create Big Profits – Apply the 99/1 rule to your income.

99% of the income you want to create will come from 1% (or less) of your “Tribe”. I applied the 99/1 rule when I was couch surfing and actually learned how to make $10,000 from just 15 – 20 people. You don’t need a lot of people to replace your income.

5. Invite your tribe to work with you.

The biggest barrier to most of our clients financial security is that they don’t invite their tribe to work with them. I know, crazy. Learn how to invite your tribe to work with you in a way that feels in integrity, that feels aligned with who you are and also feel really exciting and heartfelt to those you are extending an invitation to.

There are usually a bunch of mindset mistakes people make when they are just getting started.

– The think they can’t add value or inspire anyone.

– They think they have to have some big audience before they can make a dime.

– They think that these kinds of systems only apply to others, but not them.

– They think they have to have it perfectly figured out ahead of time.

– The think that they have to have some big fancy website that looks flashy, perfect and has all the bells and whistles.

– They think that their tribe and working with people will drain their energy.

– They don’t think it will last.

Know this…

– You have no idea how inspiring you already are.

– I made my first $10,000 from 15 people. We’ve had clients make $50,000 from less than that.

– You can apply this system to work for you…. it’s best not to do it alone.

– You can still be confused and not 100% clear and replace your income at the same time.

– I didn’t have a website when I started. And my first one was super ugly (major website shame).

– Working with others to improve their lives won’t drain you, it will give you energy.

– This can be your new life, for good.

Now… all you’ve got to do is put this plan into action.

You’ve got this. I’ve got you.

Together, we can make this a reality.

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

So, you think that you’re not creative?

Life is a process of creation… whether or not you are aware of that fact does not matter.

And, because life IS creation and YOU are a part of LIFE, you are also a part of that creation… which means that you must be like what you came from… which means that YOU are creative.

Now, before you tell me why you think I’m wrong… pause for a moment and settle into the idea that YOU are a creative being.

It doesn’t mean that you are Basquiat or van Gogh… don’t think of it in a such an extreme way.

More it’s like this… Right now… you are creating your day.

Your beliefs form your emotions; your emotions form your thoughts and your thoughts form your behaviors.

Your beliefs, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors are filters through which you see the world.

When you hear a news report that you don’t like, when someone says something that you don’t like on social media… when you feel inspired, jealous, happy, sad, joyful or otherwise… here’s the big secret.

You are not experiencing LIFE in those moments… the thoughts, stories, emotions, and beliefs you are experiencing are YOU.

So, right now… what you are feeling is YOU.

And… you ARE creating your experience at this moment… and you are doing it consciously (meaning that you are aware of what you are creating) or unconsciously (meaning that you are unaware that you are creating this moment).

The goal of your life is to discover and reveal all the ways you are unaware of that add to your current experience of life.

This includes the stories, emotions, beliefs, etc. that are in you right now… forming this very moment.

If you have a pain in your body, doctors like to do Xrays or other forms of research to see what’s going on inside.

When this happens, they can determine the best next course of action.

And – doctors who are on the cutting edge, Functional Medicine doctors, not only look for “what’s wrong” but they are also focused on getting to the root cause of what’s wrong and fixing that.

You cannot fix an internal health problem with a symptoms-based approach alone.

You must take a root cause based approach so that you can get to the source of the problem.

As it is for your physical health, the same is true for your mental, emotional and spiritual health.

You don’t know if your body being overweight is because of a fatty liver or because you are in a soul-sucking job that keeps you stressed out going to town on sugary foods.

Or – maybe it’s both.

You are in a soul-sucking job, which causes stress, which causes you to eat sugary foods, which causes fatty liver.

So, the question becomes – why are you still in the job if it’s killing you?

If you aren’t in a soul-sucking job, then view what I am saying metaphorically.

Many times, we are in situations that we think are just related to our physical health, but as we are learning more and more each day, mental/emotional/physical and spiritual health are one in the same.

There is no separation.

So, consider today… that perhaps the deeper root cause of your stress, your stuckness, your tiredness, your problem… isn’t just physical/mental or emotional… maybe it’s also spiritual.

If you are not creating what you are meant to create each day… that is a spiritual crisis… which leads to repression… which leads to depression… which leads to all kinds of other issues.

So, today… I’m asking you are very simple question as a “second opinion”…

Are there any gifts, creations, ideas, inspirations or projects that you’ve been wanting to do for a long while now that you aren’t expressing?

If so, let me know what they are.

And… when would NOW be the right time to get started on this project? (ahem…. NOW).

What would be your first action step to get going?

Let me know.

You are a creative being, born from creation itself… who has come here to give us something special, unique and that can only come through you.

Don’t give up to the project… give in to your vision and get busy bringing it forward….

And – if you aren’t 100% sure what it is… that’s okay… just take the next step… and the next step after that… Just focus on today… and your next step…

How do you eat a whole field of Kale?

One bite at a time.. Take one step… one bite today.

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

WARNING: Mercury Retrograde starts today….

I must say, I am very concerned that Mercury went into Retrograde today.

And you should be, too.

Why? Because until Mercury goes “direct” on December 23rd millions of people are going to give their power away to a planet that is 48 million miles away and completely ignore the power they have right here, not only on Earth, but within themselves to live an awesome life.

Just look at some off the news headlines getting you ready for a scary and traumatizing December… like this one getting you ready to “cope” with it…

Or these two talking about how it will “mess” something “up” or that you should get your shopping done before hand…

Here’s the thing – worrying is a wasted emotion for the most part.

Why? Because we worry about things we cannot control causing negative consequences in our lives.

Here are some things you cannot control: Donal Trump’s Twitter account, Mercury going into Retrograde, your family, other people’s emotions/thoughts about you, the Stock Market, the price of Bitcoin, the Russian Investigation… your cat.

Heck… you can’t even control your hair.

Human beings are very susceptible to superstitions…

Rare is it someone who will say “Mercury is in Retrograde… but I AM NOT”.

Frankly, it doesn’t matter.

How are you responding?

It doesn’t matter what the President is doing….

How are you responding?

It doesn’t matter what Bitcoin is doing…

How are you responding?

I am sending you a warning today to decide NOT to buy into the collective superstition that Mercury in Retrograde will mess up your life or break your tech.

My tech breaks all the time, not just during Mercury in Retrograde.

Don’t give your power away to something outside yourself.

In my book, Claim Your Power, I write about the Anatomy of Transformation… 5 internal layers that you can control that determines that quality of your life…

Behavior, Thoughts, Emotions, Beliefs and your OI.

YOU and only YOU decide what this life means and how you will interpret the eventsof your life.

There is no meaning to life or Mercury in Retrograde unless YOU give it meaning.

That’s how powerful you are.

Be less concerned with a planet 48 millions miles away and more concerned with your own ability to choose right here in your own body.

So…. say it with me loud and proud…

Mercury is in Retrograde… BUT I AM NOT!

Make it a great day!

How You Can Turn Trauma Into Power

Big topic today.

(And a few cuss words, so be warned…)

I read an email from Tonya W. who said:

“I’ve been following you for a while now, and your messages & content have always been super real & resonated with me on a deep level. But the thought of actually emailing you never crossed my mind.

I suppose I have an inferiority issue (he’s so busy & well-known he’ll never reply), but I decided to say fuck it today.

Emails from you have literally been exactly what I’ve been dealing with.

My deadly 3:

1) Opioid addiction

2) Abuse

3) Comparison & not good enough.

I just decided to surrender & take the synchronicity & run with it!”

Tonya goes on to ask a really powerful question:

“Is it possible to help others while YOU, yourself are still healing? I’d love to coach. Help others with addiction & empowerment. I’ve had coaches, but it was difficult when none could ‘relate’ or sometimes even empathize with what I’ve been through. I guess really; I’d just love to hear your thoughts. I really value your opinion!”

So, first things first, Tonya… this is really me… I really read your email, and this is NOT an April Fool’s joke.

This email is for you.

I should also share that Tonya mentioned she is clean and sober and our of a toxic relationship now for five years.

And second – congrats! Sobriety is the #1 most important thing.

Keep working your program and keep doing all the things that got you here, still one day at a time.

I’m so happy you’re sober Tonya.

And, let’s dive into your question.

What I love about this question is that it is full of integrity.

The idea that I must be healed before I heal others is true.

However, we must define “healed.”

My hunch is that what you meant was…

“Must I be FULLY healed before I can help others…? Is there a perfect amount of healing where I will be “enough” to actually coach?”

The answer is… no.

I would suggest banning the thoughts of “fully,” “totally” and “completely” from your mind.

This thinking seems like it’s a high standard, but it’s actually perfectionism in disguise.

I think it’s a very righteous thing that you want to do a great job for your future clients and make sure that you do right by them.

However, the arrival point you are asking about does not exist.

When you are one day sober, you have one day more than the addict who is still suffering. Part of the 12 Step Program is to help others and be of service.

And, I would much rather you extend a helping hand to someone who needs it, who isn’t sober yet, but needs that hope, than to wait.

You see, as you make progress, think of yourself on a continuum. The people “ahead” of you are your mentors, and the people “behind” you are your clients.

What I mean is this…

You always have a chance to serve.

There is always an opportunity to help others.

Don’t wait until you feel “enough” because we never quite get there.

In fact, when you serve others, that is how you expedite your own healing.

One of the most amazing things about doing what I do is that I get to learn from my clients, I get to grow.

When you step into serving others in the way that you are asking about… your work, your business is also your therapy.

I think it’s amazing that you’ve sought out mentors Tonya.

No one does it alone.

When you mentioned that you didn’t feel like you could relate to certain coaches, that’s okay.

There are plenty of teachers and plenty of clients.

There is more than enough to go around.

You are getting clearer and clearer on the values you have as a client, and this is helping you get clear on the values you will have as a coach.

The trauma that you’ve been through is a big deal.

And, what’s an even bigger deal and super powerful is that you are choosing to turn that trauma into power, that hurt into service and you have a strong desire to serve others.

What’s even more powerful is that the trauma that you’ve been through has given you empathy and a certain understanding about what it feels like to go through what you went through.

This makes you especially qualified to serve others who have been through what you’ve been through.

Your experience, your strength, your resilience and your results are enough to help someone else right now.

Don’t wait. People are in pain. People need your help.

And it’s not always obvious.

Many times the people who are in the most pain suffer quietly and never share what’s going on on the inside.

I recently had a colleague of mine take her life. It shook our community.

You never know what people are going through, even someone who you think has it all together.

Your desire to be a coach is rooted in the desire to serve others.

Follow that desire and keep your eyes peeled for who God sends you each day to serve.

When you focus on serving others, you will have more than enough confidence to help them.

And… keep your education going. Invest in yourself.

The best coaches have a coach. The best coaches have a mentor.

Keep sober. Keep doing the work. Keep serving others.

Education is important.

But you don’t need any more education to start making your difference right now.

So, start now. And keep growing.

The world needs you, Tonya.

I’m so proud of you.

Five Super Simple Steps To Turn Failure Into Success

Chances are… when it comes to your dreams, you’re most likely getting in your own way. The right mindset changes everything.


Cuz’ when you have the right success mindset – that means your behaviors line up with your goals.

But, even high performers get their mindset messed up.

Why is this a bad thing?

Your life doesn’t flow. Dreams get put on hold. Doors close. Opportunity stops knocking. And – worst of all…

The limitations of your past become the possibilities for your future.

Not good.

So, if you want to end financial fear, if you want to quit the soul sucking job… or grow your business… you be in a soulmate relationship…

Get your` mind right.

Here’s five awesomely simple ays to turn failure into success:

1. Get Curious

Old thought: I can’t do this because…

New thought: I wonder what it takes to create…?

2. Start Small

Old thought: I have to do this all at once and don’t know where to start…

New thought: I can do this one small step at at time…

3. Be Specific

Old thought: I am going to love my body… (vague)

New thought: I am going to work out 5x a week, cut refined carbs and drink 1/2 an oz. of water per pound of body weight (specific)

4. Focus On Outcome

Old thought: I always self-sabotage because…. (discussing only the problem)

New thought: For this project to be done, it would look like… (with specific outcomes)

5. Dedicate Yourself to Life Time Mastery

Old thought: I’ve been doing this social media thing for a couple weeks and it’s not working. I’m not reaching enough people.

New thought: I’m going to master social media, always learn and it’s an honor to reach the people that I do now.

My advice to you is this:

Trade your limiting beliefs for curiosity…Turn major projects into micro steps…Turn unclear behaviours into clear action items…Turn vague visions into clear outcomes…Turn dabbling into a dedication to mastery…

When you do this – anything is possible.

Your purpose is counting on you to do this.

And when you apply what I’ve taught you here… you turn any failure into success.

And that’s awesome.

And you’re awesome.

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

How to cut through confusion and embrace clarity

Are you confused about what next step to take?

That is AWESOME. Here’s why.

Confusion is a symptom of three things:

1. The fear of trusting yourself

2. The lack of clarity about the road ahead.

3. New momentum in your life that was self-initiated.

If you’re not moving forward, you are in your comfort zone and won’t be confused.

So, if your confused, what does this mean?

It means YOU have decided to change your life (#3 above), and there is new forward momentum!

HOWEVER, moving forward means you are looking ahead into an unknown cloud of foggy uncertainty.

Because none of us know what’s next.

And, that would be FINE, but you probably don’t have a long history of trusting yourself.


Here’s the thing.

Your intuition has always been there. Always.

It’s just that the fear voice has been louder. And you’ve followed that fear voice before.

When you follow that fear voice, not your intuition… well… things just don’t work out.

So, you probably have a history of things not working out.

And thus, you may be assuming that if you try something *again*, that it won’t work out.

You’d be right… if you followed your fear voice.

But, that’s not what you’re going to do this time, is it?

This time… you are going to follow your still, small… intuitive voice.


Get still. Get very still. And listen until you hear it. Kundalini Yoga helps me hear my intuition. So does meditation. And… weirdly… getting a massage.

Anything you can do to relax that monkey mind of yours for a little while can help that intuitive voice speak through you.

You’ll feel it. In your body. It will feel “right.”

It’ll also be scary. But it will also be *correct*.

Now, when you follow that voice… things won’t go according to plan. Which is awesome.

Remember your mantra… Always for me… never to me.

Follow your intuitive voice this time. And stick with it 2x longer than you normally would.

Don’t give up. Surround yourself with positive people who can cheer you on.

Take a risk. Follow your intuition.

And pretty soon, that confusion will inevitably turn to rock solid clarity.

But, you’ve got to earn clarity with courageous, imperfect action.

Confusion precedes clarity.

The secret sauce that turns confusion into clarity is persistence and never-ending courageous imperfect action in the direction of your intuitive voice.

Trust yourself.

This time, things will work out greater than you could ever imagine.


Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

Is a positive intention behind your actions?

This is a radical idea… but let’s try it out for a moment and see how it goes…

What if NOTHING is going wrong?

Have you considered that the pain of your life is the motivating factor that is pushing you to grow and evolve?

The question that your pain is asking you is a simple, yet profound question…

Will you align with your Soul, or will you turn away?

What does that mean, though?

“Align with you Soul…”

Sounds good, but WTF does it MEAN?

Here are five beliefs that are common when you aren’t lined up with your Soul:

1. I am powerless to change.

2. My happiness is dependent upon what other people do or think of me.

3. Only when I am perfect, will I be enough.

4. I am not supported.

5. There is no purpose to or for my life.

When you act out of these beliefs, life is stressful, life appears tough, and you stop growing. When you have these beliefs, it means that you are caught in the web of your Survival Patterns™ (those pesky irrational fears that keep you stuck) and that your past is running your future.

When you are feeling negative feelings, like guilt, shame, etc. – you are not living in the moment… you are living in the past.

The aim must be to LOVE these emotions and decide that these emotions are not who you are…. just emotions that are passing through you, seeking healing.

One of the best and fastest ways to heal… is to seek out the positive intent of every situation.

This is a mind-bender… and something that takes practice.

However, the more that you practice this idea, the better you will feel and life will begin to come into balance and make sense. Seek the positive intent of every situation. ‘

Every person does what they do, because they believe, on a certain level, that there is a positive intention behind their action.

Many times, that so-called positive intention is unconscious.

They are positively intending to survive, and there may be unconscious Survival Patterns™ that are running the show.

It’s a positive intention to survive.

Even if the situation or someone else’s behavior harmed you, the way to get free is to forgive, let go and seek the positive intent.

What’s the positive intention of someone who hurt me?

This is a deep question.

And – here’s the answer… the positive intention of someone who hurt you was this…

They were trying to find some way… anyway…. to free themselves from the pain they were in.

And, they did it in a way that was not wise and caused you pain.

This doesn’t make it right. BUT – if we can see that they are trapped in a nightmare of unconscious pain, then they turn from a demon into a scared/wounded child who is seeking solace from their demons.

Seeking the positive intention does not justify what happened to us, but it helps us find empathy… the empathy to know that no matter what someone did “to us” – that they were also doing the same thing, or worse, to themselves… and most likely… someone did the same thing, or worse, to them.

In this way, we can begin to be open to the idea… the nothing and no one is “wrong.”

They are just seeking to feel better because they don’t have the tools or the awareness to act otherwise.

This means… they are growing… and so are you. When you judge something as “wrong”, you miss the lesson because you are in blame of the other.

This doesn’t mean you should accept injustice. However, if you ever want to truly heal… and put an end to what was done to you… that can only happen from a place of love.

If you hate the people that hurt you, that hate you, you join the darkness with them.

We must begin to see the pain behind the harmful acts of others. Nothing is wrong; we are growing.

They are in pain… and seeking relief in any way they can. It’s not their “fault, ” and it’s not your “fault.”

Soul Growth is a big deal… and can be painful. But it is NOT growing the creates the most pain.

Today, see the positive intent of all that seems “wrong” in your life…, and you will become open to a deeper and more empathetic view of yourself and all those that you know.

Here are five beliefs to take on today… that will help you align with this perspective and thus, your Soul:

1. I am a powerful being who can change anything and at any time.

2. My happiness is dependent upon the meaning I give the events of my life.

3. I am enough right now. I am perfectly imperfect, right now.

4. I am supported.

5. There is a beautiful and unique purpose to my life.

Focus on growth… on forgiveness and on empathy.

You’ll see the world with new eyes.

Nothing is wrong; all has been sent for your growth.

Today, dig deep roots… and grow through it.

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

Are you just surviving, not thriving?

Do you know what keeps you blocked from the success, personal freedom and life of abundance you want?

Not just fear… Not just “you”… Not just time… Not just money…

Let’s be more specific, shall we?

There’s just one thing that’s actually blocking you:

Survival Patterns™

Or… you can call ’em SP’s for short. SP’s keep you stuck.

SP’s like… distraction, procrastination, perfectionism…

and even talking about your SP’s more than you should…

even the awareness that you have SP’s can become an SP…

because then you are focused just on how many SP’s you have.

When you know you have an SP.. your job is to begin the process of healing it.

You don’t break your arm… and then just talk about how broken it is… and how you broke it… over and over again.

You get your butt to the doctor’s office, and you get a CAST. Your SP’s need a CAST called… your life’s purpose.

When you know your purpose, your why… everything starts to change… your drive to overcome and heal your SP’s kicks in.

You take all that self-help knowledge… all that “information” and it drops down into practical application… into real life.

In fact… you might “think” you know something, but you don’t really know it until… you’re DOING IT.

Knowledge without action is the same thing as not having the knowledge in the first place.

Knowledge is simply potential energy… it’s not until your activate your knowledge does it become kinetic or ALIVE.

So, if you are reading the books… GOOD.

f you are doing your meditation… GOOD.

If you are working on yourself… GOOD.

But let’s take an honest look at where you are in your life right now.

If you’re procrastinating, or in perfectionism, or playing small, or distracted all the time and not following through…

Your Survival Patterns™ are winning.

And here’s the thing… Survival Patterns™ create other survival things…

Survival jobs… Survival relationships… Survival romance… Survival income… Survival food habits…

Meaning… your job, relationships, income, and food habits are “just enough” for you to “survive”.

But, they are not at the standard that you see yourself.

When you discover your purpose and bring it to life… you upgrade from a survival job… to a fulfilling and abundant vocation.

When you discover your purpose… you upgrade from a survival relationships to a Soul Tribe of people who are supporting you.

When you discover your purpose… you upgrade from survival romance (aka roommates) to true love and passion.

When you discover your purpose… you upgrade from just survival income… to an abundant income that allows you to provide security to those that you love + the time/money freedom to travel and create unforgettable experiences.

When you discover your purpose…. your food habits are not just there to survive.

You raise your standards from sugar/wine and chocolate (or caramel popcorn) to food that fuels your purpose and gives you more energy.

To survive in this world is a miracle.

To thrive in your purpose in this lifetime is something you must earn.

Vision boards alone won’t do it.

To thrive in your purpose… you need to increase the amount of intentional pressure you feel.

Now… stress and pressure are two different things.

When you’re just surviving, you feel stress because at any moment you may not be surviving.

But, when you apply true intentional pressure in your life, that is when you grow and demand more from yourself.

The pressure to show up in bigger and bigger ways.

The pressure to forgive the unforgivable.

The pressure to show up and add value to the world.

These are good things.

Diamonds are forged under intentional pressure… the body gets sick under chronic stress.

If you’re going to be stressed by the day to day of survival anyways… you might as well focus on the tasks that create pressure and a similar sensation as stress.

It takes just as much energy to be stressed by thinking about how you will pay for food next week and how you will become more and live your purpose.

You might as well use your stress wisely and transform it into pressure that turns you from coal (survival) into a thriving diamond of purpose.

Are you ready to trade your surival life for an abundant life of purpose?

How will you get started living your purpose and bringing it to life?

Do you want to put your purpose and true abundance on the fast track?

What if you can… find the time… reschedule… make this and yourself a priority?

You… your purpose and your loved ones are worth it.


Are you ready to become a diamond?

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

How To Create Financial Certainty For Your Loved Ones

Will you do anything for the people you love? Do you want to make sure they are provided for? Taken care of?

Your children. Your parents. Your peeps.

Recently I read a note from Stephanie who said:

“I feel obligated to maintain a steady income to support my kids. I tell myself that when they are out of the house, then I can figure out what I want for myself.”

Stephanie, I want to talk to you today.

And… anyone else who feels like their purpose isn’t quite here yet.

Let me get this out upfront:

The BEST way to take care of your Loved ones is to live your life as an EXAMPLE of what’s possible.

Your only true obligation in this life is to discover your purpose and live it each day.

When you consider what action to take, what next step to make… and what the priorities of your life are…

It’s important to pay attention to the questions you are asking yourself.

Perhaps one of the greatest questions you can ask yourself when it comes to taking care of your loved ones is this…

“How can I best set an example of what’s possible?”

You see, your loved ones watch what you DO, far greater than what you say.

Your children model your behavior, not your words.

So, this means to take the best care of your loved ones; you’ve got to take the best care of yourself.

Do you want your children to discover and live their purpose?

Then discover and live yours.

Do you want your loved ones to be able to have financial security for the future?

Then tap into the abundance that comes when you bring your purpose to life.

Do you want to take great care of your father/mother and help them retire and have a great quality of life?

Then bring your purpose to life.

Discovering my purpose is what allowed me to have enough funds to pay for rehab for my mother, which was a life-saving moment.

Discovering my purpose is what allowed us to buy a house for loved ones when their home was condemned due to mold.

If you are waiting until they “grow up,” “move out” or for “one day when” you think things will get better… you are not taking the best care of your loved ones.

You are not setting an example of living your best life.

In order to take the best care of your loved ones, you must grow, you must stretch… you must discover your life’s purpose and then dedicate yourself to bringing it to life.

By bringing your purpose to life, you set the example for your children or your parents.

By finding your purpose, you open up the abundance that you know is meant for you, but seems to be alluding you.

By discovering your purpose, you show your loved ones you mean business.

Do not delay your dreams.

Do not set an example of living on the “horizon” for “one day.” They are watching you and they are taking their ques from you.

Whether you know it or not… you are a leader and they are watching your every move.

Instead of saving for a rainy day, invest in a sunny future. Invest in yourself.

Invest in your purpose.

Make discovering your purpose your #1 intention.

Let no excuse get in the way.

Let no limiting belief stop you.

Do whatever you need to do to overcome the fear/trauma/hurt and worry from your past…. and make today and every day forward a day where you are dedicated to brining your purpose to life.

Do not allow any past hurt/trauma/pain or fear stop you. Instead, consider that the trauma of your past is a prerequisite for your purpose.

You were being prepared for THIS.

When you bring your purpose to life…

That’s when abundance comes.

That’s when you have true personal freedom.

That’s when you create true security for your loved ones.

That’s when you set an example for everyone you love about what’ possible.

Within you is power, greatness and the ability to be a role model of what living your purpose looks like.

Have you been focusing on what’s most important… or just being distracted by what’s in front of you?

Make if your intention to make what’s in front of you most important – that is discovering your purpose and bringing it to life.

The only difference between someone who has true freedom, who has work and a career they love, who experiences a truly abundant life… who takes care of their loved ones and gives them the ultimate security…

And someone who is distracted, overwhelmed, not feeling free, waiting until “later” and always worried if they will be able to take care of their loved ones is just one thing…

Those who experience true freedom, abundance and the security to take care of the people that they love know their life’s purpose and are living it each day.

If you’ve tried a lot of different things and it hasn’t worked out, or if you thought you knew what your purpose was and lost it… or if you aren’t sure you have a purpose… or if you know what your purpose, but it’s in process and not quite here yet… that’s okay.

If you really love your peeps, then get about the business of bringing your purpose to life.

Don’t hide behind your loved ones and use them as a reason why you can’t risk/grow and become more.

You owe it to them and to yourself to take the leap and jump into the life that’s waiting for you.

It’s time to remove the hidden blocks keeping you stuck, accelerate your results and bring your purpose to life.

Not sometime in the future… but right… NOW.

You’ve got this. And I’ll be right there with you.

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

How To Stop Wishing For Financial Abundance And Actually Have It

I wanted to layout what I believe is the fastest pathway to creating financial abundance in your life.

It might surprise you… and it might not.

Heres’ the bottom line: you’ve got to find the fastest path to money.

Yes, making a difference is important.

Finding your passion is important.

Taking care of your loved ones is important.

And, no… money is not the most important thing.

Let’s remember what the great Zig Ziglar said about money…

“Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.”

You see, money is the vehicle that allows you to make a difference, to live your passion, to take care of those that you love.

Think about it. If we keep riffing on the money/oxygen idea… when you’re in an airplane… what is the instruction in case of an emergency?

Put the oxygen mask on YOURSELF first.

THEN help a child and/or others.

Why is this?

Because if you don’t take care of YOU first, then you won’t be able to help others… and in fact… you’ll endanger yourself, and the crew will have to risk valuable time and energy getting the mask on you when they could be doing other things.

So, just as we’ve been told countless times on airplanes when it comes to oxygen, we’ve got to take care of ourselves first, and the same idea is true with money.

Do you love oxygen more than God? Or your loved ones? Or your purpose?


But without oxygen, none of that stuff can happen.

The same thing is true with money. Money is the oxygen of your purpose, your passion, and your highest ideals.

If you have a passion for helping those in need, it’s wise to start with yourself. I get it; we are a generation about passion, purpose and living higher ideals. But, without money, those dreams will never come true.

So, as much as we like to hide behind the “love/light/purpose/passion” conversation… let’s get right down to you… you need money.

This doesn’t make you bad, evil, greedy or any of that… it makes you a human being on planet earth who must play by earthly rules.

So… here are the three steps to cash, now:

1. Ditch perfection and figure out your M.V.P.

M.V.P. if your Minimum Viable Product. This is the smallest thing you can create to add the most value. In the coaching business, your MVP is typically a one-on-one coaching package.

The key with the MVP is to let it be messy, let it be imperfect, let it not have all the bells and whistles.

Reid Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn, says this about the MVP mindset:

“If you’re not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.”

2. Shift your mindset to service over passion.

Instead of asking what your passion is, train yourself to help others.

Focus on it. Pay attention to the common threads that emerge.

Where you find yourself getting lost in time flying by.

As you focus on helping others instead of “your” passion, “your” social media, “your” bills, “your” following, etc… abundance will open up.

Why? Because you will see an infinite abundance of opportunities to serve.

3. Don’t wait for clarity, start now to find clarity.

To be successful longterm, you need two things: courage and clarity, And – courage comes first. Then clarity. Ideas don’t start out with perfect clarity. You never know as much as you want before you get started.

Instead of needing perfect clarity or a perfect plan before you start… simply start now, messy, imperfect and embarrassed with your MVP.

That’s the basic process: create an MVP, focus on how you can serve and start now.

This is the fastest path to cash.

And, the sooner you start, the better.

My greatest wish for you is that you implement what I’ve shared here.

How can you get started today with these three steps so that you can elevate yourself and generate the money you need to make a difference, live your purpose, help others and finally take care of your family?

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!
