Sanity in a Money Crisis

Stressed out about money?

It feels like a tidal wave of panic. It sucks you down farther as you wonder how you got in this mess. You really start drowning, searching for air, when you can’t seem to find clarity on how you’ll fix this TODAY! Everywhere you turn seems like a dead end.

I understand. I’ve been there more than once!

My advice? Stop the head trip. Put the analyzing on hold for a moment… or two. Allow yourself to fully experience the emotional reaction you’re having to this situation. If you feel helpless, let it bubble up.

Mad as heck? Let it rip. Full permission here.

It does feel AWFUL. It feels like you have no control. It really feels like crud when you know you could’ve done some things differently to avoid this mess.

But you’re here. So be here fully.

NOTE: Don’t allow this process to happen in front of anyone who’ll try to fix this or get stressed out with you.

Once you’re done having your reaction, then you can move forward. But don’t take action just yet.

You have to not only be thinking clearly before you act, but you must be able to give all your attention to where you want to land on the other side of this crisis. Clearly outline the results you want—not just to solve this crisis but to also discontinue the behaviors and habits that helped you arrive here.

Begin by looking backward to see what actions and thinking patterns need to change. You can do this on your own or use your financial planner, accountant, and/or coach to sort through the rubble.

Next, ask yourself if there’s any action that will give you some breathing room. You may have to ask some hard questions of people you don’t want to ask. I’ve had to call my financial planner, on more than one occasion, to pull money out of my investments to pay for unexpected tax bills.

Take the time to truly assess your overall financial picture… without emotional reaction. Knowing your numbers is very powerful even when you don’t like what they say. It may even soothe your nerves. If you’ve been in denial, this may be a wake-up call. Either way, it gives you a sense of control.

Now you’re ready to brainstorm solutions that’ll feel good. The first few options that come to mind are generally the ones that feel like a negative trade-off if you take them. Don’t move forward yet.

Do you feel confident that you are up for this change? Do you see the possibility of becoming a person who consistently has a good relationship with money? You don’t have to feel totally sure about the future, but you have to have a glimmer of hope.

Give yourself a break with the amount of time this process may take you. One foot in front of the other. Breathe. Deep breaths.

There is always light at the end of the tunnel, although you may have to look really hard to see it. It’ll be important to have someone to check in with during this process.

I turned around a three-year financial fiasco in less than a year. As a result of thinking differently and taking consistent baby steps, my income doubled. The main focus was appreciating every small effort I made. I did not allow myself to sink into a black hole, thinking about how slow the process was for me.

I stopped judging myself.

You can do this too. You’re not stuck. Consider yourself unstuck, perfectly sane, and take a baby step right now. When you’re done, breathe some more.

I’m rooting you on!

The One Percent Rule

Just because you’re getting stuff done doesn’t mean you’re happy, profitable, or growing your business.

Let’s look at Jack’s business. He’s a truly intelligent man with a revolutionary way of helping mid- to large-size companies create rock star teams. When people hear Jack talk, they listen. He’s inspiring and innovative.

Jack built this business himself with blood, sweat, and many tears. He’s made some nice cash, but nowhere near what’s possible.

Nothing about Jack’s business is going the way he thought. In fact, he’s not even sure he still likes his business. It seems like too much work and not enough freedom, I have coached a lot of Jacks. They think because they’ve laid out a business model, worked on their systems and marketing, and gotten some coaching, they should be making loads of dough and feel free.

No way, Jose.

I don’t care how much drive, passion, and smarts you have, if you aren’t connected to your heart while you move from action to action in your business, you’ll never achieve the dream. Period. It will always come with a harsh price to pay.

You have to be relaxed. You can get a boatload of tasks done in a day and still feel chilled out while you do it. You can be having a ton of fun and feeling the flow looong before you reach your annual goals.

If you’re a fan of the Law of Attraction, you may be thinking, “Honey, you’re preaching to the choir.” But I’m not.

Somehow, no matter how many times I preach about how critical it is to pay attention to how you feel while you work on and in your business, CEOs still pay more attention to pushing for quantity and speed. They worry about results.

I say, “Slow down to go fast.” And they whine, “I tried that. I did it for a couple of days and it felt good. Then somehow, I got caught in a rut again.”

Abraham-Hicks says, in A New Beginning Volume 2:

“By giving 99% of your attention to bringing yourself to the feeling that you seek and giving 1% of your attention to inspired action—you will be in a place of powerful motion forward while you exist in a continuous state of joyful well-being.”

This isn’t fluff. I tripled my income the first year I practiced this formula. It felt weird at first. I felt like I was a slacker if I wasn’t on a stress and adrenaline high. And sometimes I felt like a crack addict kicking my brain to the curb. It was painful.

If you focus on success through action, you won’t have the pleasure of a smooth-running business. You’ll end up sick, too. Your body can’t take the stress or the unsettled feeling you experience when you’re constantly uptight about manifesting your goals.

I say, make huge targets in your business, but follow the 1% rule above. Make your state of mind more important than any other factor.

The result will be more money, peace of mind, a healthy bod, and a kick in your step because you know your business is a freakin’ blast!

Have you ever tried to implement these ideas to your business? How did it work for you? Let me know in the comments below!

Is Your Story Working for You?

We’ve all got limiting beliefs. You know some of them. Others you don’t. You may have gone to personal growth workshops and thought you discovered them all. (Although, you probably didn’t.)

Do I have a limiting belief about you not knowing all of your limiting beliefs? Yep.

It’s all a story.

You live in a story about the way things work. You buy into the story like it’s truth… even if it’s disempowering.

Here are some stories that you may be living out in your business:

  • I have to charge $_________ for this product or service or it won’t sell.
  • I have to use these marketing techniques or people won’t flock to my store or website.
  • There are some things in business you just have to do even if you don’t like it.
  • If my customers only knew ________________, they wouldn’t like me.
  • It takes years to build a six-figure business.
  • Hard work, lots of time, and good work ethics will yield success.

The way you live each day is based on a story about what you’ve made up as the rules of engagement, the path to success, expectations of your family and friends, what you think is healthy… on and on and on.

It’s ALL made up.

If I were to sit down with you and point out some of your stories about business, you might argue with me. You’d justify why you can’t do business another way. Or why you can’t invest money into your business.

And I’d say, “Oh, hogwash! Create a new story.”

What’s the story you want to live by?
How would you be in your business if you got to do it 100% your way?
What if customers and clients were guaranteed to buy an offering at any price?
What would you offer and at what price?

You’re already making up all the stories, so how about living into a new one that actually feels freeing and abundant?

If you aren’t already making six or seven figures and totally loving the way you’re doing business, what do you have to lose? Your face? Your reputation?

That’s a story, too.

You can only live an exhilarating journey when you take away the story about how things work and how they’re supposed to be.

Question everything that feels hard or uncomfortable in your life. Ask yourself, “What’s the story I’m living right now?”

I thought because I had little stress in my business that I didn’t have many stories. HA! I’ve got tons of stories.

  • Not enough time to put all my ideas into action.
  • I’m not doing enough to build my mailing list.
  • I should only check my email a couple of times a day.
  • I’m not as effective as I need to be with my copywriting.
  • I need more time! (Did I already say that?)

I could go on and on. And I think I’m being business savvy with some of these stories. Question any stories that feel confining, confusing, unauthentic, and wimpy.

The thing is, stories that inspire and make us smile are good. Keep living them. But what if there’s an even BETTER story?!

Turn Your Business Model Upside Down

I never thought much about my business model until almost twenty years into being an entrepreneur. I know: crazy, huh? My model was to get an idea, implement it, and keep doing it… if it was fun. But I didn’t have criteria to gauge what was working and what wasn’t.

Who cares if I’m constantly reinventing the wheel, as long as I can put food on the table?

Are you doing something similar? Maybe you have a well-thought-out model, but you’re unhappy and not producing as much profit as you’d like. Your model might feel confining or boring.

How about chucking your current model for something better? And what if you created a model that worked in harmony with your behavioral style, values, and lifestyle?

What if you kicked it up another notch and created a business model so cool that it put your creativity at an all-time high?

Turn your business model upside down, shake it out, and put it together in a way that 100% turns you on. You might be cringing right now at the thought of figuring out a business model. It might sound complicated.

Nah! It can be a simple, easy, and creative process. In fact, the end product can fit on an 8.5 x 11-inch piece of paper.

Get your fantasy hat on and ditch the voices of every business expert you’ve ever heard for this exercise. Answer the following, not worrying about how each question relates to the next. You’re connecting with your Inner Business Expert to speak your heartfelt truth.

  1. What do you love doing or offering? (You’re so energized by it that you could do/offer it all day long and be ready for more.)
  2. How involved do you want to be in the process?
  3. Do you want to sell to a few or to many clients/customers? (You’re not worrying about monetizing yet, so be honest about your preference.)
  4. Who do you freakin’ love serving?
  5. Do you enjoy offering a few things or many?
  6. If your business were a party, what would be the theme? Is it intimate and mellow? Is it high energy with fun food, drinks, and dancing? Are you playing poker and giving awesome prizes? Are people showing up in costumes, tuxes, or jeans?

Get all the components on paper. And if you weren’t worried about how all the pieces fit together, what would you be thrilled to offer and in what way? If you weren’t worried about offering products and services in the low, mid, and high price points, what would you offer?

Next, weed out any ideas that seem fun but won’t sustain your passion.

The last step to creating your model is to piece the components together in a way that flows for you and your ideal customers. And your pricing has to feel good in your heart yet support the profits you claim as your desired outcome (you might need some coaching on that, right?).

Your business model needs to support you. There are many models out there that shouldn’t work based solely on what business strategists say. And yet they do, because they’re passion mixed with well-thought-out plans.

When you do it your way, it’ll work much better.

Focus Frequently On Your Frequency

If you’re wondering how to ensure your business plan becomes a reality and your biggest goals are achieved this year, there is one strategy that blows all the others away.

Focus Frequently on Your Vibrational Frequency! (If you want a brain twister, look up what Wikipedia has to say about vibrational frequency.)

I’m the kind of person who thrives on taking bold action, but action means nothing when it is generated from lack or fear. In fact, those actions can do more harm than good.

How you feel about money and success is more important than what you do to create it. How you feel determines your vibrational frequency.

Imagine a conveyer belt coming straight toward you. It’s loaded up with piles of money, super duper smart people, and amazing opportunities that are guaranteed to give you everything you desire in your business.

The speed of the conveyor belt is determined by how you feel. If you’re fired up about your business and completely inspired when taking action, that belt is moving miracles right atcha. Everywhere you turn, you experience helpful people and awesome synchronicities.

If you’re procrastinating, doubting your success, and stressing out, that conveyor belt has all but stopped. Nothing good reveals itself to you. You seem to experience one setback after another.

Your emotional state determines how fast or slow you vibrate (manifest) abundance into your business.

So why do you place more importance on productivity, getting it “right,” and efforting than feeling good?

When it comes to success, paying more attention, more often, to your connection to your Inner Guidance will yield massive spirals when it comes to your income.

As Abraham-Hicks has preached for decades, “Nothing is more important than I feel good!”

Whip out your business plan for the year and write in the biggest font possible:
Paying attention to how my goals, practices, and actions feel is my secret weapon.

If it feels good, it goes on the Hell YES List. Everything else is placed on the Hell NO List.

Get that conveyor belt moving at full speed by Focusing Frequently on Your Vibrational Frequency!

Marketing Is A Four-Letter Word

“If only I knew how to market in a way that made people get the value of what I offer!”

Every time one of my coaching programs had few (or zero!) registrations, I cursed marketing. I knew it was the one thing standing between my ideal clients and me. And it really ticked me off!

I decided to channel that irritation into one of the most powerful tools in my business. I decided marketing could be fun and easy.

I also decided that I had what it took to be good at it.

  • How do you feel about marketing?
  • What kind of results do you expect from your marketing efforts?
  • Are you following your own rules or somebody else’s?

Shifting how you feel, what you expect, and 100% honoring your values when you market is going to change how many ideal customers say yes to buying from you each year.

Good marketing isn’t about quantity, it’s about creating heartfelt relationships with your tribe. People say yes because they get the value of what you offer.

And they can only understand the value when you feel strongly about what you offer and communicate that while standing in your power (with love, of course!).

You don’t have to replicate what the marketing gurus do when it comes to reaching out to your people to share your products and services. You just have to be you and stay true to your brand.

Many of you reading this may be on my email list and think, “Jeanna, I can’t send out an article every week or promote my stuff like you do.”

You don’t have to … and you could choose to make it easy (and dare I say fun?).

Once I decided to learn about marketing and do it the “Jeanna” way, I immediately got different results from every marketing action I took.

I never market when I feel scared about money or not 100% behind the offer. I never send out an email or put up a webpage that doesn’t feel true to my brand or values. I never talk about things that I can’t back up. If I promise it, I’ll deliver. And that’s why I can be fully in my passion when I speak about my products and services.

Marketing is just an extension of you. It’s called communication with the people who need your stuff most. You are helping them to create a solution in an ideal way.

And that makes marketing a beautiful thing. If you think marketing is yucky, then it’s going to be a bit challenging to make more than enough money to survive doing what you feel passionate about.

I suggest you make marketing a four-letter word: LOVE. Yep, spread the love. Only communicate the value of the solutions you offer from a place of inspiration and joy. Create a love affair with your ideal clients and customers.

I LOVE and APPRECIATE YOU!

Practice Abundance to Increase Your Revenue

Everything you do is a practice. Got a messy desk? It’s a practice. Always find yourself needing to make more money? That’s a practice, too.

If you pay attention, you’ll notice that throughout your day most of your actions and thoughts are habitual. And often, that’s not a good thing!

If you practice something for a few weeks (or even a few days!) it can become an unconscious habit. You always attract more of the thoughts and actions you practice.

For instance, I notice on Mondays I ease into my workday by going through my email inbox. I don’t usually take any appointments on Mondays, therefore it’s a spacious day and designed to work on projects. It was not a conscious decision to automatically dive into email every morning and get sidetracked for hours answering them. This is how easy it is to get set in a behavior. It works the same way with attracting abundance!

You’ve heard that it takes 21 days of repeating an action or a thought before it becomes a habit, right? Well, how many habits do you have? Which ones help you attract profit? Which ones just suck up your time? Which ones literally work against you?

Take time to do a little self-check right now. If you don’t, you probably have a habit of not taking time out to create powerful new habits.

I’ll give you some examples from my own life.

Habits that support my abundance and peace of mind:

  • Walking
  • Mastermind meetings
  • Weekly business meetings
  • Delegating work to my fabulous assistants
  • Setting my intentions for each day (I do a minimum of six; I use Stephen Covey’s 6 Big Rocks formula)
  • Scripting out my business goals (writing stories about my goals as if they’ve already manifested)
  • Tracking my income/expenses
  • Breathing purposefully
  • Going to the gym
  • Creating specific goals in all areas of my life
  • Having structures in my life that keep me accountable to my goals
  • Listening to uplifting audios and videos
  • Checking email only 3 times a day
Habits that suck up my time (I stopped some of these years ago when I took inventory of my habits and found that these ticked me off!):

  • Checking email too many times a day
  • Reading almost every joke that gets sent to me via email from my family
  • Tearing articles/recipes out of magazines and then having to file them
  • Reading aviation articles that I know don’t impact me
  • Reading accident reports for skydiving (I used to skydive every weekend)

Habits that work against me (notice that many of these habits have transformed into habits that work for me, above):

  • Making business plans without accountability
  • Not forecasting with my finances
  • Being complacent about my team’s performance
  • Not delegating enough
  • Worrying about not making my targets
  • Not trusting
  • Loose targets with my team
  • Waiting until the last minute to get the articles to my VA for my ezine (used to drive my team bonkers!)
  • Waiting until after 6pm to go to the gym
  • Not taking time to read books
  • A messy desk

Habitual behavior is a direct result of your thoughts. For instance, if you constantly worry about not having enough money, you’ll begin practicing profit-sabotaging behaviors. But if you decided you were sick and tired of worrying about having enough money, you could intentionally begin to practice empowering habits around money.

Every time you accidentally slip into worry, consciously get your mind to focus on a visual of you rolling in money (doesn’t that sound fun?!).

 
Next, you could set up a minimum of two new habits to practice that will support the vision of you being surrounded in piles of cash.

Your new habits can be big or small. Your frame of mind and personality will dictate what is best for you at this moment. I like to incorporate both small and big habits when I want to increase my abundance.

The small habits keep you grounded on a daily basis and are easy to accomplish, increasing your confidence. The big habits create change quickly. They are defining. For instance, twelve years ago my business hit a big slump and I acquired a lot of debt. It felt out of my control, so I took charge and shredded all of my credit cards except my American Express business account.

That was powerful for me and it affirmed my commitment to my new revenue goal. I also created spreadsheets that tracked my income and my debt balances. This was a big deal for me to create, but a small thing to fill in every week. I began the practice of overdelivering to my clients.

Nine months later I was completely out of debt and I had doubled my income! Small practices led to huge results (thank goodness!).

Now, back to you. Which habits are you willing to drop right this moment?Choose two. If you feel apprehensive about letting them go, ask yourself what is possible by letting them go. You want to get connected to the impact these practices have in your life.

Now choose two to three new empowering habits that will serve your goal of abundance. Decide how you’ll stick to practicing these new habits while they are in progress.

By the way, all habits are your choice. Good, bad or ugly… you are the one that practices them. You can change them at any given moment. Do something different.

Baby steps lead to avalanches of revenue.
 
What’s your next baby step then?

Ask the Right Questions

Most ideas begin with enthusiasm. Sometimes you hit a roadblock in your mind as fast as the good idea came. Other times you begin to act on the idea and then find yourself stumped. Is it time to jump ship when the boat springs a leak? Not necessarily.

You could immediately try to plug up the hole. I recommend asking some questions first. Not just any questions, but the right questions. How do you know if they are right? They should lead you to an answer that will move you toward what you want.

In our example of a leaking hole, you could ask the following:

  1. Why do these things always happen to me?
    2. Should I sue the manufacturer of this ship?
    3. What is the best solution for fixing the hole in this moment?
    4. Who is responsible for allowing this hole to manifest?

Which question will attract the most useful response? The third question gets my vote. It will lead you to an answer that you can use to fix the ship and set sail. The other questions may get you a response that is interesting, but is it the most useful?

Who you are asking the question of is also important. Ask yourself the question first. Many times we have our own answers but look to everyone else for advice. You are your own best expert when you’re not caught up in the emotional drama of a problem. Calm yourself down before you begin asking questions. After checking in with yourself, you might then ask some other questions of people who will support you in moving toward your desired end result.

The types of questions you ask will reflect where you’re focused. Let’s say your goal is to have a ten percent increase in profits this month. Asking yourself, “What will happen if I don’t attract it?” is not a productive question. A better question is, “What is a simple way I can increase my profits immediately?”

I ask myself daily, “What is most important for me to focus on today?”

What’s the question you’ll ask yourself to be better aligned with your most important desire?

Backup Plans

When you have a goal or desire that is important to you, do you ever go into mental overdrive before you see the results? I know I have.

You can go into overdrive in several ways:

  • Thinking about every possible scenario that could go wrong
  • Thinking about solutions for every scenario that could go wrong
  • Anxiety striking, and when your head hits the pillow at night you have one- sentence mental loops like, “I’m not going to have enough money. I’m not going to have enough money”
  • Wavering back and forth between two or three plans of attack to manifest your goal
  • Stewing on the fact that you don’t know how to get the desire; feeling unclear and creating anxiety on “being stuck” or not knowing the next steps

Finally, you create a plan for what you’ll do as a worst-case backup. Now you’re just flat-out worn down and feel mentally beaten up.

If your backup plan doesn’t feel good, don’t count on it. Use a backup plan to soothe you, knowing you at least have a plan. Then make another decision. Make a plan, an intention, for the way you’d like to have it happen.

I have a perfect example of this. Some years back I had a rather large expense pop up that wasn’t planned. The cash wasn’t available, and the due date was looming. I say looming because I had begun to feel tension about not knowing how I was going to pay for it.

My mind searched for the worst-case scenario backup plan. The best I could come up with was to put it on a charge card. I checked in with how it felt. Not ideal, but hey, it’s a worst-case backup plan.

I let the backup plan take away my tension. Then I made the real plan: Attract new cash. Well, there was really no plan for how to do that. I just decided it would be so.

I checked in with my inner guidance and kept receiving the message that the money would arrive. I was going on pure trust because I was seeing no evidence that any new substantial amounts of money would be coming to me.

Then the “hows” began to arrive. I called the company to which I owed the money and asked if they could give me another week. The answer was yes. Cool.

Then I began to take a stand for the value that I bring to my current and future clients. I began speaking differently to inquiries about business. It wasn’t what I was saying but who I was being. It was a not a conscious effort. It just happened. The result was more than enough money.

Two days later the money I needed for the expense showed up—and so much more.

The backup plan was long forgotten by then. If you don’t have a plan, make one up.

Next, decide what you really want.

Then chill out so your best-case plan can unfold.

Do you have a backup plan? If so, let me know about it in the comments below.

How to Create or Upgrade Your Lady Mafia

How much money comes into your life is a direct result of what you consider to be the “reality” of how easy (or hard) it is to attract prosperity. You might have a great vision of yourself doing great work in the world and being compensated handsomely for it… but your environment may be dragging you down.

I asked Denise Duffield-Thomas, a manifesting maven, to share one of her secrets for upgrading your money setpoint. This girl just blew me away with her announcement of a three-book deal with the most badass publishing company in the industry! I wanna be like her when I grow up. ;-)

HOW TO CREATE OR UPGRADE YOUR LADY MAFIA

Do you ever get the feeling that your friends are bringing you down?

When you hang out with friends, do you feel like you can’t mention money because you think so differently than the people you’re hanging out with?

Don’t worry, we’re going to talk about what to do when you know you have to create or upgrade your lady mafia, and I have a great resource for you to use afterward, too.

WHAT IS A LADY MAFIA?

Your lady mafia is that group of friends or mastermind buddies who you know will always have your back. These are your “ride or die” friends and mastermind buddies.

They’re the friends you celebrate your successes, your ah-has, and your screw-ups with.

But…

You can outgrow your lady mafia.

It’s sad, but true: if you’re working on your mindset, your business, and your money blocks, and your fellow lady posse members aren’t, then chances are you’ll outgrow them pretty soon, if you haven’t already.

HOW DO YOU UPGRADE YOUR LADY MAFIA?

First of all, check who you’re hanging out with.

Are they friends who have all said that they want to start a business, but then just moan on about how they can’t quite decide what to do or that it’s too hard?

If you’re on fire with ideas and enthusiasm but your lady posse likes to sit and whine, then you’re not an energetic match… and I’m sorry, sweetheart, but it’s really likely that they’ll bring you down.

When that happens, you pay with decreased business motivation that reflects in your bottom line.

If you need to upgrade your lady mafia now, then here are a few ideas of how you can:

Suggest that you all study a mindset or manifestation course together, or read a book on the subject to lift you all up.

Give them a chance to get on the train with you, but if you expend a lot of your energy to keep everyone motivated and enthused, it’s not worth it.
You might have to face the fact that it’s time to cut your ties to that group.

Cut your ties. It can be as simple as saying that you can’t make your meetups anymore, or arranging other activities for yourself whenever the old group schedules something.

Manifest yourself a new lady mafia! This might sound hard right now, but if you’ve cleared a space for it and created a vacuum as well as gotten really specific about what you want, it will happen fast.

If you want immediate support with your money mindset and to release any money blocks so can upgrade your life… you’ll dig this.

(There’s no cost.)

This is also a great opportunity to connect with a new lady mafia, and once you learn to break through your money blocks, abundance will begin to flow toward you easily and without struggle.

It’s your time, and you’re ready for the next step.
