Mission-oriented or Money-oriented?

Published 18 days ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

Someone shared on LinkedIn recently that she didn't want to continue growing her business.
Growing her company would have meant she had to get into a competitive headspace.
She said it would lead her to become money-oriented.
And she wanted to be mission-oriented instead.

Society has conditioned us to believe if you're money-oriented, you can't be mission-oriented, and vice versa.

But why do you have to be either one or the other?
Why not be both money-oriented and mission-oriented?
Being both money and mission-oriented enables you to:

  • lift others,
  • expand your experiences,
  • give your family a better life,
  • live comfortably, even luxuriously,
  • make an impact in your community,

What's wrong with that?

You need to be money-oriented so that you can be mission-oriented -
the more money you make, the bigger the impact you can have.

I used to be conflicted because I desired to be financially successful.
On the one hand, I wanted to make as much money as I possibly could.
On the other hand, I felt bad and guilty, as if by making more money I'd become one of those greedy, arrogant show-offs.

But I realized these were just old stories and beliefs I grew up with.

I could rewrite my money stories and beliefs to make financial success a good thing.

This inner transformation wasn't easy and it didn't happen overnight.
It began when I took the first step to be brave and look within myself.
The good, bad, and even ugly ways I behaved around money.

I was open to seeing all my hidden, secret stories about money I'd collected over the years.
Then I decided to tell myself different stories and hold new beliefs about money.

Stories and beliefs that would help me achieve all my dreams and goals,
and be the kind of person I wanted to be -
generous, loving, free, and at peace.

This is why I'm passionate about helping women uncover their deep, inner relationships and stories with money.

Doing this inner work can change your life.

Are your money stories and beliefs serving you or preventing you from reaching your financial goals?

Hello Reader, It's easy to get all excited when you're starting something new, like a side hustle. You dream of making it big like the people you see online. You invest in all the fancy tools, create courses, get ready to scale, and leverage your time in anticipation of the hundreds of clients and customers you expect to have. Only to discover it takes a lot more than you thought. It took me years to learn this expensive lesson. But when I did, I decided to streamline everything and focused...

Hello Reader, My kids and I were talking about how so many of Taylor Swift's and Beyoncé's songs aren't that good. Sorry if you're a fan! We love their music, but they have quite a few songs that just aren't that good. But those that were hits? Those became huge and made them the megastars they are today. I recently ran a workshop that didn't do as well as I'd expected. But one great thing that happened? I got fantastic feedback and data points to improve on the next one. Maybe I'll let it...
