Over time certain powerful prosperity truths have emerged. When these truths are consciously taken to heart and mind they will make a positive and profitable difference in your day-to-day finances and to your life.

1. Being paid what you are worth means believing you’re worth being paid. Suze Orman in her book Women and Money calls it taking yourself off the sale rack. You’ll only earn as much as you believe you’ll worth! So, what do you believe you’re worth?

2. Financial intelligence isn’t measured by your academic degrees; it’s measured by the quality of your life. How would you rate the financial, emotional and physical quality of your life? Is it time to make some changes? Money doesn’t buy happiness but it sure can help smooth out those bumps along the road of life. Even with the most advanced educational degrees and training if you’re not financially secure and content, it’s because something on the inside continues to block your financial success.

3. Happiness isn’t about how much money you make, but about how happy you are making money. Are you living your life’s mission? The happier you are making money, the more money you’ll make.

4. Poverty is an unconscious mind-set – prosperity is a way of life. If you’re not where you want to be financially, something in your unconscious mind is blocking your ability to create and enjoy unlimited prosperity. Are you hearing old negative programs playing over and over in your conscious mind? Do you believe you are worthy and deserving of living a happy and financially successful lifestyle?

5. Life-long job security is about the life-long job you’re doing on yourself. Prosperity and self-education go hand-in-hand. The days of life-long job security in a nine to five job are over. The secret to financial stability comes from taking control of your financial education. The more you know, the more you can understand how to take care of your financial future. Self-education creates greater self-confidence in your ability to thrive.

6. How you handle money is a direct reflection of how well you can handle yourself. If you’re confident in yourself and your ability to succeed and prosper, you’ll handle your money just as confidently. Simply put, if your inner life is in turmoil then your financial life will be in turmoil also. Is it time to get your personal and financial houses in order?

7. Prosperity is probable when you picture the possibilities. Don’t limit yourself with “I can’t do that” thinking. A prosperous and receptive mind is always ready to entertain new and exciting financial possibilities and opportunities. You’re the only one placing limitations on yourself and your ability. If you doubt that, make the time to read success stories of those financially successful people who overcame great obstacles to prosper.

You have the power to create a financially abundant future, no matter the economy. Life is filled with many positive universal success truths and it is up to you to use them to live and enjoy a financially abundant and wealthy life. What are your prosperity truths?

Quick Tips to Help Grow Your Business and Yourself!

Tips busy women in business can read in under a minute and use for years to come…
 
 
I’m a believer that the bigger your hopes, dreams and goals – the bigger your results.

Here are 3 reasons to start dreaming BIG:

1. Your inner motivators begin to take hold when you have something exciting and powerful you truly want to make a reality.

I’ve been working on my new Vision Board and as I glued the words and pictures on it, I realized that I have some lofty goals. Here’s what I found from personal experience – the bigger and more emotionally charged you can make your “why” – the more likely you’ll achieve your goals.

2. When you have a purpose, you can powerfully focus your time and energy.

When you have goals that excite and empower you, you’ll find yourself more organized, have more effective to-do lists and seem to feel more energetic.

3. Dreaming BIG helps you to look forward to the future, positively. Dreams give you hope – the hope that things can be and will be bigger, brighter and better.

A BIG dream has the power to get us up in the morning to do those day-to-day things that take us positively toward the future.

Do you dream BIG?

Please share your comments, tips and suggestions – we value your insight.

I know in my own life, building up self-confidence in my ability to succeed and thrive in business has been an ongoing process. Sometimes I take three steps forward and two steps backward. The key is never giving up on yourself and your ability to make personal and professional goals reality.

Here are some practical tips I’ve learned for boosting business self-confidence:

1. Appreciate where you are now and what you’ve achieved in your life and your business. I’ve found that women often have a difficult time appreciating our accomplishments. We have a tendency to find the “flaws” before we’ll give ourselves a well-deserved pat on the back.

A while back there was an interesting self-confidence study involving men and women. A part of the study involved each person describing themselves to someone they had never met. The key was that they were doing this over the telephone and the other person could not see them.

Here are the results – The majority of men described themselves based on their accomplishments, career achievements and hobbies. The majority of women described themselves based on their physical looks, the flaws they found in themselves (especially their appearance) and how they served others.

Generally, what does that say about how we women see ourselves out in the business world? Do we base our career self-confidence on appearance and flaws or achievements and accomplishments?

2. Make a detailed list of your personal and professional talents, gifts and strengths. How can you appreciate your greatness if you don’t understand how great you are? We often take for granted how truly talented we are. Is it time to step back and acknowledge all that you do and have the ability to do with your career? Is it time to come out of your career comfort zone and go for those bigger and bolder goals?

3. Become aware of how you talk to yourself about yourself. The most important words you’ll hear are the ones you say to yourself. As soon as your mind hears the sound of your voice, it is ready to listen and obey. For example, if you keep saying to yourself that you never do anything right, your mind is going to remind you of all the times you made mistakes.

Greater personal and professional self-confidence begins on the inside and works its way out. Napoleon Hill the author of Think and Grow Rich probably said it best, “Thoughts become things.” Do your internal thoughts about your ability to succeed and thrive increase or decrease your business self-confidence?

4. Decide when and how you are going to expand your career comfort zone. Make small short-term goals and achieve them. Then, give yourself permission to bask in the enjoyment of making those goals reality. You’ll become pleasantly surprised at just how quickly small steps become self-confident giant leaps.

5. Keep learning, growing and expanding your horizons toward greater personal and professional successes. Take the classes, work with a coach, seek out mentors and then begin using your new skills in your day-to-day life. Remember also to speak up when you have a question, it is all part of the learning and growing process.

I remember lyrics from a song that said, “Inch by inch is a cinch – Yard by yard is much harder.” Pat yourself on the back for every small step forward – appreciate your day-to-day, month-to-month and year-to-year progress.

Personal and professional self-confidence is based on the unwavering belief you have in your ability to achieve what you set out to accomplish. The key to enhancing your business self-confidence is never giving up on yourself and your ability to make personal and professional goals reality.

Your business will only make money if you are focusing time, energy and attention on moneymaking activities. I know that sounds logical but many of my coaching clients have a difficult time truly understanding the difference between moneymaking activities and “busy work.”

woman smiling and money

Here’s my definition of moneymaking activities: Those activities that produce immediate, short-term or long-term income producing results. These are the activities that will put money in the bank.

Here are seven moneymaking activities that should be a part of an average workweek:

1. Actively marketing your business, product and services.
This means speaking to organizations, having an updated blog and website, using social media, meeting new prospects, etc. Marketing is the ability to get your service or product in front of your target market on a regular and timely basis. Without marketing you don’t have sales and without sales, you don’t have income.

2. Follow up with new prospects.
The gold is in the follow up! You can market day and night, but if you don’t do the follow up you’re wasting time and energy.

3. Personal meetings to discuss your product or service.
Many businesses require personal meetings to prospect, demonstrate, product explanations, etc. These meetings can be conducted over the phone or even via Internet. If you can demonstrate or explain to many people at one time, so much the better. With technology such as Skype, tele-conferences and webinars you can often have the same positive effect as in-person meetings.

4. Asking for referrals.
Spending quality time asking for a referral can be one of your best tools for finding new customers. In order to receive a qualified referral the person giving you the referral must first know you, like you and trust you. The best referrals come from established relationships – networking, past customers, friends, etc.

5. Networking and meeting new people within your target market.
This should be a regular part of your marketing plan. If your business involves “humans,” than you should be socializing with people. Where will you find your target market and how can you get to know them? There is social media (computer) and there is human interaction – if you study the most successful businesses, they regularly do both.

6. Developing passive income.
Passive income is income that continues to make money even as you’re sleeping. Sales from products on the Internet, rental property, royalties on music or books are all examples of passive income.

7. Working with current clients to ensure great customer service.
Time each week should be devoted to follow up with current customers and clients. The best companies have excellent customer service. Do you make “care calls” or send care emails? Are you making sure your customer is using your product effectively? A satisfied customer is a great source of referrals and future business.

Can you see how dividing your work week into moneymaking activities will increase business and make you more money? How do you spend your moneymaking time?
