I want to clarify I am not an economist, and I do
not have any special training in economics. What I am is a successful do
it yourself, think out of the box woman who when told
it can’t be done
takes on the challenge of doing it! The
it in this case
being the start up of my business in THIS economy! How many times
have you let THIS ECONOMY affect you? I want to help you create a
new way of thinking and being starting today.
Someone who studies the economy is called and
economist. The main job of an economist, no matter what the
specialty, is to examine the inner workings of the economy of
interest relative to their field of expertise
and make predictions and
recommendations based on those factors.
For example, an economic expert looking at housing and
seeing a slowdown may advise a company making air conditioning or
furnace units to begin to cut back on their production, as demand
is likely to wane. This helps the company prepare for a slowdown
by avoiding becoming overstocked or overstaffed, thus adding to
the long-term financial stability of the institution. Think of it
as a check and balance system.
From this point forward it’s time to consider
your brand (YOU) your own economy and you are the economist of
your brand. You are
the economist of YOU and YOUR BRAND. You are going to look at the
inner workings of YOU! Creating Mindset is a huge
piece of this puzzle.
What I want to show you is exactly how focusing on you/
your brand will ultimately affect the masses. From an energetic
perspective it’s really very basic; what you think about your
bring about. To complete that equation you MUST follow up with
I think we would all agree the success to
anything you build is the strength of the foundation you build
on. In order to create a strong global economy there must be an
investment in building a foundation; included are, investing
adequately in schooling, healthcare, transportation and so on. As
it relates to YOUR personal economy your investment is equally
Below are 4 areas you MUST invest in to build
a solid foundation:
#1 “An education isn't how much you
have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being
able to differentiate between what you know and what you
I love the saying you don’t know what you don’t
know. At first it sounds kind of silly but when you really stop and
listen to the words it makes you wonder what you don’t know and
what if you did know! I am always inspired to go and find out what
I need to know!
Education is the 1st component to creating your
own successful economy. You will always find education comes in all shapes and
sizes and it arrives in the form of textbooks, human beings, and
life lived. In order to create a solid foundation for your
economy you want to make sure you invest in all 3 forms. I am a
huge advocate for learning. I am also a very out of the box
thinker and I never have expectations of where the learning will
I have learned firsthand how it is so important to
get educated in your specific area of expertise and to keep
learning and adding to what you already know. I like to think of my
learning in layers.
The 1st layer being a very broad search of the many
facets of what I am looking to learn. For example, I have always
known I was going to make a difference in women’s
lives. I was always
curious about their lives, their core beliefs, and why they did
the things they did. Once I got that layer I went
on the next which was to education myself formally in metaphysics
the study of ontology, the actual study of why we are here. I got
a degree in spiritual counseling in metaphysics and then it was
time to go deeper.
My next level was to actually study with psychologists to
understand the patterns of thought and feeling and how they are
interconnected and you never have one without the other. You get

want to offer the world and then be open to the continuous

the 2nd component to creating your own successful
economy. You cannot do it alone. Let me say that again.
YOU CANNOT DO IT
ALONE. There is an undeniable strength in team.
I will be completely transparent with you and tell
you for a long time I tried to row my own boat and resisted
allowing anyone to help me. I studied, I added to my knowledge of
the subject I longed to bring to the world but I just couldn’t seem
to get it lifted off the ground to the level that I wanted to. I
was told over and over what a wonderful service I provided. I was a
featured guest on a lot of radio shows, I was the featured expert
in tele-summits and live events, but I just couldn’t reach the next
level UNTIL I invested in a mentor! It took me a LONG time to
realize that and I am bringing it to light for you so you don’t
have to struggle like I did.
I made excuses for not investing in a mentor; I
can’t afford it, or no one really knows my business like me, or my
business is good enough just as it is. All those excuses were born
out of fear. Fear
that I might be successful. The truth is my money mindset kept me
small for a very, very long time. I lived out my family legacy of
never having enough.
It was the mindset I was unconsciously building my business and my
life on! Whew, did that create a major mess!
Being true to who I am I decided to re-open the
wound of my money story and clean it out once and for
all. I won’t lie that
was some intense work and with the help of Spirit, great
psychotherapist friends and a lot of inner work I became
It’s funny because once I became whole I realized
exactly how incomplete I really was. All the sudden I knew what was
missing! I needed a
team to support me. I hired my technical persons, my personal
coaches, accountants and so on.. It does take a village! LOL
Tip #2 Invest emotionally, energetically and financially
in the right support team. It will save you A LOT of
#3 Knowing yourself is the beginning
of all wisdom.—Aristotle
The 3rd component is YOU, investment in
YOU. I want you to really savor this and breathe it all in and
let it settle into your core. Your outside life (business,
relationships) will only develop to the level that you are
developed (emotionally, spiritually) on the inside. Developing
self is the key to creating your own economy. It is the root to
all successful businesses.
When it comes to Self Develop there isn’t one
sure-fire recipe. I
have learned from experience that everyone responds differently to
the call of personal development. I am providing you with guideline
and principles that have worked for me personally and for many of
I encourage you to use your creative self to take
away what you most need and add what you feel is missing when you
begin the journey to a deeper self.
Areas to consider when creating your foundation for your
Acceptance: Accept reality and rid
your life of denial
Awareness: Develop awareness and
deliberately co-create your life

connect with yourself and others

and release yourself from the negative energy of what was.

Tip # 3 EVERYTHING begins and ends with
you. You are ONE with
the CREATOR and to love and honor yourself is the gift you give to
#4 Mindsets play strange tricks on
us. We see things the way our minds have instructed our eyes to
component to creating
your own successful economy is Mindset. Mindsets play a
MAJOR role when building your economy. Think about the little engine
that could! "I think I can I think I can!" and so, he did! The same
is true for you.
The simplest way to create internal
shift is to change the way you think, feel, interpret, react, cope,
expect, process, interact and communicate. I can sum it up in 3 simple
If it is your intention to
be different you MUST DO DIFFERENT!
Our brains are
amazing and the truth is science has only begun to truly understand
the depth of its functionality. What is certain is that the
brain relies on what it knows, what is worn into it. Expectations, emotions,
attitudes and beliefs are all woven in from the moment we enter
this world. Well intended families, and society “teach” us what to
think and how to react and once these patterns are established it
takes a lot of conscious thought and effort to create different,
BUT IT IS POSSIBLE!!! The internal shift is simply created by
replacing the old experience/thought with a new experience/thought.
Change comes from
doing. We can’t simply ‘think’ ourselves different; we must ‘do’
ourselves different. We need to create inspired action behind our
new thoughts. This is
the only way to internal transformation.
Here is my
personal story of a
new inner mindset
I was raised to
believe women didn’t need an education because their job was to
find and marry a man who would take care of them. To shorten this
story, I did just that. I also held onto the belief I wasn’t smart
enough because I had no formal college education. When I reached my late 30’s I
knew there had to be more than what I kept thinking about me; I was
too stupid to achieve academic success and therefore I was destined
to a less than fulfilling life.
I was a
self-proclaimed dummy who one day decided to enroll in college, I do the work,
I develop learned study-skills, I embrace the academic learning, I
pass the exams and I achieve success! I AM CHANGED! My ability was always there but
the confidence wasn’t. My self-limiting thinking and
self-sabotaging behaviors are GONE– as I have created a new mindset
by DOING! I stepped
out of the box and took a chance!
Am The Business Woman who set up her own
business. I consciously create from a place of I CAN DO IT.. and,
so, I DO! I actually
do it. The first few years of owning my own business, I embraced
the fact that growing would only come from stepping out of my box
and creating new experiences. The experiences change me and now I
life my life with a completely new mindset.
It’s time to get
rid of the story. Rid yourself of the excuses. Use your past only
as a guide to the future not as a baseball bat to beat yourself
over the head. Forgive yourself. Be kind to yourself. Love your
Humanity. Consciously plan your direction.
Tip #4 To be different you
MUST DO DIFFERENT.
You destination is anywhere you set your mind to!
