Why is it so hard to talk about MONEY?

Welcome to Blog #1 on the topic of MONEY. I am deeply intrigued by the weirdness we have developed over the topic of money and here’s why. In an online ecosystem, to sell your wares you must be able to collect money. To collect money you must jump over hurdles, be a professional mind-reader, and have a MASTERS in Emotional Intelligence. This is a self-created cataclysm waiting to happen. I want to know why the conversation around money has to be so fucking uncomfortable. I am on a quest to rewrite the rules as this.

You want what I am selling. I give you a great experience by way of a phone call of a long string of Facebook messages. If you don’t have the money, then say no. If you do have the money then pay right then. But NO here is how it goes instead. 

I have a long Facebook chat with you, during my business hours, and you ask me valuable questions, getting valuable answers. Then, I ask for the sale like I was taught to do in Life Insurance Manager Training. I say, “Ok, here is your payment link”. And what do you do? “Well can I wait until Friday or next week”, or “My budget is really tight right now”, or “I need to talk it over with my husband”. See how you, the consumer, are not only making it hard on you because you don’t get what you thought you needed, and you are making it hard on ME because I have spent hours chatting with you on messenger or talking to you on the phone.

You should try hard to understand that this is BILLABLE time and that you are getting something for free. I want to talk about this. My professional advice has a price tag. So, my first solution is to stop giving away chat message time. 

Talking about money is the only way we are going to have more money. I have made so many mistakes giving away my time with no money return, and I am getting really frustrated with the whole faking bullshit that I see on a day to day basis. Don’t tell me you don’t have the money to do something if you do. So, what are three steps I can take right now, as an entrepreneur who has allowed too much brain picking?

  1. First, limit messenger chats to 10 minutes then send to the link for scheduling a call.
  2. On the schedule software, include the language “Any Time Over will be Invoiced at $100 an hour, then
  3. Create a money-closing “Ask” conversation with each point of contact.

 

How to Bend the Universe and Command Your Experience

How to Bend the Universe and Command Your Experience

You are the Universe – and the Universe is You 

How to Bend the Universe is about taking control of your life, commanding your experience and speaking what you want with no fear. When you want something the first thing you usually do is go through a laundry list of why you cannot have it. You think about what others would say, or if it violates some sort of family rule for you. You feel guilty about wanting a new house, or a brand new car. You go back into old toxic beliefs of poverty, lack and shame.

You are the Universe so it’s only you who is keeping the things you want away from you. Sure, the gurus will say that ego is the part of you, that only looks out for itself. The gurus all are wrong. The richest men and women in the world know the secret to manifesting. They don’t hold back on stating what they want. They create an electric vision of the exact manifestation packet they want to receive, and they do it again, and again.

What do you want to experience? 

How to Bend the Universe: Magic Lessons for Living an Imperfect Experience teaches you how to create a list of what you want. Once you get the list in place, you have placed your order to the Universe or to “your higher self” of just exactly what you want. Make it loud, proud and real, with no thought of who you may offend.

I have lived nearly my whole life with blinders on my face, secretly harboring a want or desire, but not giving voice to it. Or getting what I wanted and not knowing how to stay in TOTALITY or “Full Gratitude” thus invoking negative manifestation. Negative manifestation is when you lose something you have gained from desire, because you were not grateful for it. Define exactly what you want and do not let anyone stand in your way of getting it. 

Recenlty my husband and I were talking about the kind of home we wanted to build on our land. He went to the “The smallest possible so we can afford it”, and I want to the 4000 square foot home with hot tub, a private office for me, asphalt driveway, recycled bluejean insulation, the biggest fridge known to mankind, and plenty of space for my grandchildren to come see me during the holidays. I want a big house and that is all there is to it. Yes, the marriage was impacted, but NO I didn’t back down. In fact, my vision board has a picture of the exact house I want, along with other things that I want to experience. I want the home/house to have ZERO freaking mortgage already! I don’t want a mortgage.

Leave the How to the Universe and Believe 

The major mistake most dreamers and visionaries make is in creating a vision, then trying to left-brain figure it out to no avail. They start on the blueprint, road map and plan to make the money to buy the stuff. Trusting is so hard. Blind faith that the Universe can open up the necessary doors to your desire is not easily achieved unless you practice.

The Freedom of Zero: Bending Your Money Universe

The Freedom of Zero: Bending Your Money Universe

Starting Over after Financial Ruin

I can recall the stories I heard about the crash of 2008 and how people lost their homes, their 401K, their insurance; loss was certainly the theme of this historic time. Opposite what was lost is clearly that which was gained at some point in time. In the accumulation phase of life we buy things with cash, charge them on a credit card, inherit things such as money and houses, not truly taking stock of the magic in one word: ZERO

I recently was in a position to embrase ZERO as a special place to start again. Just prior to my breakout I had to experience collapse and ruin. However, there was something mystical at play; an energy of safety. There is freedom in zero. When you are at your version of rock bottom, you are never as low as the next person hitting their own bottom. Something to think about.
