But It’s Not About The Money…..

Brace yourself, this could be a little contentious and will be sure to raise a hackle or two…..

We have spoken a little about themes coming through MBS business people – a big one is “But it’s not about the money…..”.

Hmmm, then why are you in business, or are you ok to be in a “hobby” – essentially business (should) pay you and a hobby will cost you.

Maybe it’s not about the money and you truly can live by other means.  If we are to be all “MBS” about it, then money is purely an energy exchange and you will have heard this before and you should be receiving energy in return for giving it to clients.

With that said, we live on the earthly plane and in order to survive and even thrive, the vast majority of the population needs an income.

That amount to surive will be different for everyone – to thrive will be different also.  Essentially in this town and country, a 6 figure income will provide you the opportunity to begin to make choices and they will possibly be very different choices to what you are choosing today – or maybe not.

If for you, you say it’s most definitely “Not About The Money” – then my response is – why not make a significant income and GIVE THE REST AWAY!  We can do far more good with money than without it and there will be many deserving charities and people who would say for them, the money makes a significant difference to the work they do and the help they can give.

My goal is to take my children and husband to a place in the world, once per year, to contribute significantly and to teach us massive gratitude for what we have been blessed with at home – first on our list is an Orphange – maybe in Cambodia – My husband to offer great handy skills and love, my children to help their Dad to fix stuff and to play, and me – to contribute and to support the carers and love those children in any way I can and that’s appropriate.  Maybe another trip – a week in an animal shelter – maybe a Thai elephant shelter and we will all shovel elephant poop for a week and sleep on bamboo beds!  These dreams to contribute to the greater good cannot happen without money…..

If it’s not about the money….. maybe some aspect of your new found business success and contribution could be.

Yours in gratitude



Is Success a Mindset or Hard Work?

Often those of us who head into a Mind Body or Spirit Business (and the range of businesses is so broad – most of us, no matter what our business, are in an MBS business…..) are looking to not only take our talents to the world, but have some healing to do ourselves.

Very often we are drawn to the business because we want to learn more and how often do we find that our clients mirror what’s going on for us….

Success is a mindset, no doubt about it.  We have to be open to receiving (money) we have to move past any limitations we have about our worthiness and we have to be willing to shine and get back up when we take an arrow or two – and let’s face it, in business we have to be prepared to take an arrow or two and recover.

With that said, Hairy Audacious Action is also required and this includes tenacity, flexibility of mind and business model/products/services, an ability to read market forces and work out what clients “really want” and nothing can replace good old fashioned commitment.

This commitment includes being commited to our own development – I recently made a significant financial investment and began some training with Rebekah Tucker of Sandler Training – I have received some real gems of information and immediately have taken on board what was good for my business and changed or tweaked some aspects of what I am doing and best of all, I feel really good about it!  Our businesses reflect our own growth and development.

What investment in mindset and good old fashioned education and commitment are you willing to make to further your business?

With gratitude
