5 signs your money mindset is sabotaging your business success.
Hello business buddies. Do you ever feel stuck in a rut your business. Like not matter what you can only reach a certain level of income? Make a certain number of sales? Or worse yet, maybe you feel worried that you aren't going to make it?
I get it completely, because for a long time that was me too. A born creative, when I first started out in business I was full of passion and also totally naive. Being a child of the 80's I grew up on a healthy dose of Oprah's "follow your passion" narrative. This follow you dream sentiment was echoed to me through career counsellors in high school.
At the age of 17 I began my first hobby business selling upcycled fashion at the local market. Then at 26 I started my own screen printing business. I believed that as long as I worked and "hustled" hard enough, and long enough I would eventually "make it". Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, I sacrificed so much in my early career and relationships by my late 20's I found myself completely broke.
It wasn't until my early 30's when I first learnt about my money mindset that I actually learnt how to make a profitable business that could sustain me. In fact was as if my whole life I'd had my blinkers on to how to actually make and save money.
You see, unbeknown to me I had some serious money blocks. From a young age I had carried with me a set of long held stories and beliefs that deeply and completely impacted the way that I felt about receiving money. Some of these subconscious beliefs were inherited from family others from friends or from the media. First and foremost the belief that rich people are greedy, that money is the root of all evil, and that money isn't everything. Pro Tip: It's not nothing either.
Fortunately I learnt how to challenge my beliefs and assumptions and adopted a much healthier money mindset and business behaviours. Nowadays I utilise my skills to help others grow their brand and business online. I also work with business owners on their marketing and money mindset so that they too can master (rather than sabotage) the business growth that comes from having a great online presence.
Here are five signs that your money mindset is sabotaging your business success:
It's not that I am perfect now in business. Old habits die hard and I still have to pull myself up every now and again when I find myself undercharging or doing too much. However I am more aware of my beliefs and behaviours around money and my income has improved substantially.
