Over the years, I have seen a lot of people making this mistake -- buying into expensive business/marketing training/coaching programs.
In these programs, they're with a group of hundreds of other students, with high hopes that the energy of the program will somehow propel them toward success...
As someone who has sold such programs myself, and have partnered with dozens of others to sell these, I can tell you this:
These programs are highly profitable for the seller, there's no doubt.
But they are also a very poor investment for the buyer...
Over the years I’ve seen many people try to work on their “money mindset”...
Is it actually effective?
So many friends and colleagues have spent thousands of dollars (and years of effort) working on healing or clearing their money blocks, or dissolving “limiting beliefs”… and yet years later they are still struggling with many of the same money issues...
Not talking about “getting rich quick”, but giving yourself some breathing space…
An “opportunity” that promises overnight wealth is almost certainly a scam: they make money quickly by taking your money quickly. Or, you may be asked you to sell an "income opportunity" to your friends & family. I’ve been there. I'd advise you to decline any scheme that requires you to recruit other people to sell successfully before you make real money.
Making money fast is not what I typically discuss. An authentic business is built over years, not months. I even wrote about my own 10-year plan to semi-retirement. (Some people might even consider that fast!)
However, several of my readers have asked me:
“What if I do need to earn money quickly in my business?”
And I’ll add: “…with integrity.”
Here's my answer:
If you would love a business that expresses your soul, a business that feels like you are fulfilling your Calling or Mission, then consider this plan.
It’s the same plan I’m following to build my authentic business:
Also, depending on various factors, it doesn’t have to take 10 years...
How do you view money and spirituality?
How do these ideas relate, in your mind, heart, and experience?
The intersection of money & spirituality has fascinated me for years. I’d like to share with you 3 viewpoints about it...
