I attended a mastermind recently that impressed upon me the importance of a healthy money mindset. If you’re in business, your goal is to make money, right? But will making that money change you? Are you afraid of what more money would mean? These are questions that you need to ask yourself.
In today’s episode, I’m sharing why it’s so important to build a business that is grounded in your values, regardless of the money you make. Read that again. If your core values are not cemented into your brain and your heart, it doesn’t matter what kind of money you make. Get clear on who you are first and then focus on making money.
What’s in this episode:
[04:03] As business owners, it’s easy to get lost in the pursuit of making money and get off track when that’s our only focus
[07:45] Switch your perspective from “How much money do I want to make?” to “How do I want to feel?”
[10:44] When you make a lot of money, there are a lot of intangibles you have to contend with and that scares people
[15:51] You have to build a business that is based on your core values, and why they shouldn’t shift when you start making money
[20:42] The definition of “rich” is vastly varied and you have to decide what it means to you
[25:24] Being grounded in who you are is the first step you have to take in order to be ready to make money
