What if you were friends with your money?

For more than a decade, I have been talking to clients about making friends with their money. Most people have a really crappy relationship with their money. When they imagine having a conversation with their money it is pretty awful – filled with blame, shame and judgement. I invite you this weekend to spend some time with your money. Imagine your money is someone you care about but you’ve had a challenge, and argument, a separation. Your goal is to reestablish the relationship. just like you would with a friend. Answer the following questions to begin to imagine how things would be different for you. Start by knowing where you are now to Overhaul Your Money Life. Ask Yourself and write down your answers or discuss them with your partner: How would your life be different if you are friends with your money? What would it feel like? What would it look like? What would it sound like? What would you be doing or not doing that is different than now? Share your ah-has and insights with us! Happy Friday – have a prosperous and joyful weekend....

A Client Gave Me Cash (pretty brown ones!)

I know! It has been ages since I wrote. It took my community poking me to get me writing again. Thanks guys! It’s good to know my ideas are missed when I go quiet. With that in mind, I am going to share something fun and cool that I learned last weekend. I was running a focus group.

I realized as I was talking about it and holding the $50 bill, that cash, especially the bigger denominations, for me screams “FREE MONEY!” (with a big Woot Woot! In there too.) Now, I already tended to avoid cash, however, I didn’t realize that the feeling was so strong, and so specific to play and woot woot! We call that an anchor the feeling of the Woot! Is anchored to the bill so when I hold it, I got the feeling and the behaviour attached to that feeling. I used a very simple process that I use with my clients to shift from free money/woot to a feeling of confidence, motivation and the flexibility of choice. It took me about 90 sec to change it and cash is now much easier to handle responsibility. (You didn’t think...
