Track your income and expenses daily


Most business owners know that in order to move towards your goals, you need to track specific activities and data. Setting a target and measuring your results will keep you on track and moving in the right direction.

Perhaps you want to build your list? State it in very specific numbers how big you want to grow it, how fast you want to grow it, and exactly the steps you’ll talk to accomplish it based on your research. Then track it. Analyze what you’ve tracked, adjust, continue, and repeat. As you track the effects of your actions, you can improve and correct.


'If the metrics you are looking at aren't useful in optimizing your strategy - stop looking at them.'
Mark Twain



Think about your goal and decide what particular metrics you will keep an eye on to make sure you meet your goal.

One specific thing I suggest you do, is to start tracking your income and expenses every single day.

The great thing about this is that you can track using an...

Common Money Mindset Blocks


When thinking about why you’re not more successful or have a certain level of income, money mindset does not always come to mind. We tend to think that practical strategies and tactics are responsible for our success but that is not always the case. It has been said that 80% of personal finance is about how you think about money and 20% is the practical side.

Today, we’re tackling the topic of money mindset and the common mental blocks we can have around money. Understanding these can clarify why we sometimes feel stuck and reveal paths to greater financial success.


Types of Money Mindset Blocks

  • It’s selfish to want more money

How Your Money History can Shape Your Business Decisions


Where does your money mindset come from? Why do you think the way you do?

While there are many contributing factors to the development of your money mindset, your history plays a huge part.


Exploring Your Money History

Consider your first money memory—was it receiving an allowance, saving up for something special, or perhaps observing how your parents handled money? These experiences teach us subtle lessons about the value of money, the effort it takes to earn it, and what it means to spend wisely—or not. Each of these memories contributes to the financial outcomes that play out in your own business today.


Let me share an example. As a young teenager I wanted a new pair of shoes. They were fancy high heels to wear to a school dance. My mother informed me that if I wanted them I’d have to buy them myself. After feeling a bit disgruntled – as many teens would, I decided to take on some after school work and save up for the shoes.

How your Money Memories Impact your Financial Success


Personal finance is more than just numbers and budgets; it's often tied to our beliefs and emotions related to money.
Understanding your "money blocks" – the subconscious beliefs that limit your financial potential – can be a game-changer. These blocks often stem from our early experiences and the influence of key people in our lives, like parents or mentors.

Let's break it down. Think back to your childhood and the role money played in your family. Was it a source of stress, or was there a sense of abundance? These early impressions form the basis of our financial attitudes. For example, if money was always tight, you might find yourself either overly cautious or perhaps a bit reckless with your finances, as a reaction to those formative years.


Authority figures in our lives also shape our money mindset. The lessons from a teacher, the advice of a family friend, or even the habits of a respected elder leave lasting imprints. These influences can manifest...

Is Your Money Mindset Holding You Back from Business Growth?


Have you wondered if mindset issues are preventing the flow of money into your business? The fact is, almost everyone has limiting beliefs and mindset issues that hold them back from achieving what they want in life. And money issues are no different.
These blocks around money often stem from our early experiences and influences from key people in our lives. Add your own money personality to the mix and you have a collection of thoughts and beliefs that will either help or hinder your dreams.

You may see evidence of these mindset issues in missed opportunities or unfinished projects. The invitation to speak at an online event you turned down because you didn't feel ready. Or that e-book you wrote 6 months ago that you haven’t launched because you think your writing isn’t good enough, even though you could have hired an editor to help you with it. In fact, you might have already started on another project instead of launching the first, second, or third.
