Money Mindset Quotes: Discover What Money Loves

Money Mindset Quotes

I’m about to share with you my favorite money mindset quotes, but they’re not your typical money mindset stuff.

If you love money, well we’re about to flip the table and talk about what money loves…

Money can be a tricky topic for many of us: we all seem to have our own money issues. We can get tangled up in our past relationship with money, not having it, not saving it, or whatever your story is.

But today I want us to take a different look at money. Instead of trying to fix our relationship with money, why not look at things from money’s perspective? Because I guarantee that money itself is a lot less emotional and a lot more unbiased.

Money Mindset Quotes: Three Things I’ve Learned About Money

There are three things that I’ve learned about money over the last few years:

Money loves clarity.

Money loves speed.

Money loves to circulate.

Let’s take a look at each one and see how you can use these realizations to your benefit.

1. Money loves clarity.

What can you do in your life and business to create more clarity, especially as it relates to money?

For example, could you sort out all of your different bank accounts so you know exactly where all of your money is at all times? This is freeing in and of itself, and it also gives you a sense of ease.

Beyond that, can you make it more clear how people can give you money? Are your products and services really clear and easy to sign up for, or do you make people jump through hoops to buy from you?

Do people know exactly what you do, or are they confused about your business? The more clearly you can explain how you can help people, the easier it is for people to take you up on it and hire or buy from you.

Similarly, if you have a complicated payment process with 5 steps and plenty of hurdles, that keeps people and their money at bay.

2. Money loves speed.

I’m not sure exactly why this is true, but there’s something about money that loves to be in motion… and it feels like the faster, the better.

If you’re speaking to an interested customer or client, give them everything they need to say yes right on the spot. Don’t say you’ll get back to them next week. Don’t let them sit on the fence, give them all the clarity they need to say yes or no, and move on.

When I was doing a lot of web design, I would speak to many interested potential clients on the phone. Every now and then, I’d speak to someone on a Friday afternoon and wait until Monday to get back to them.

Those deals never worked out. Money has a sense of urgency built into it. It wants to make things happen.

If you drag things out, slow things down, or wait to see how things will turn, you’ll usually end up with no money exchanging hands.

That’s why launches work: they have a built-in sense of urgency. It’s also why you don’t want people to be confused or to think things over for too long, because if someone is waffling then they’re going to pass.

3. Money loves to circulate consciously.

This follows from the previous point, there’s something powerful about money wanting to feel useful.

If you’ve got money hidden under your bed, and it doesn’t have a purpose, then this money feels like it’s not being used to its full extent.

Now that doesn’t mean you can’t have savings, in fact I do think money likes to be saved. But only if you’re saving money with a strong intention behind it, if you’ve earmarked it for something.

If you think back: every time you’ve wanted to save money for something specific, you were able to do it. There was money there for it. Whether it was buying a dress for that special occasion, saving for a down payment on a house, or investing in a program.

That’s because you gave money a job, even if it was to accumulate, it was for a specific reason.

Money also loves to change hands. This means it loves to be spent, but just like saving if you’re not being intentional about your spending money won’t be there for it.

When you’re investing money into your business, it tends to come back to you. When you’re investing into yourself, it tends to come back.

When you allow it to leak out in less intentional ways, it will find its way into other people’s lives.

The distinction is that money goes where it is told to go, but if you don’t care or don’t consciously consider where you want it to go, it will leak out unconsciously.

Bringing awareness to how you circulate your money is another part of the clarity piece, and it ensures you’re making money feel welcome to circulate back to you.

Is It Possible To Have a Successful Online Business If You Don’t Teach Online Business?

Successful online business
Is it possible to build a successful online business if you’re not selling to other online business owners?

I’m going to broach this topic head on because it’s something I see coming up a lot with people who discover the wonderful world of online business.

Is it possible to have a successful online business if you don’t teach people how to create an online business?

If you look around, it seems like all the popular and wealthy business owners are those who teach others how to start a business. Right? Or is there more to the story?

A lot of people who get into the online business world see that people who teach business tend to do well.

But then they start to doubt their ability to do well if they’re not marketing to other business owners online.

A Look Outside the Business Bubble

Does that mean that if you have interests and talents outside of the business world, you’re doomed to earning a small income for ever and ever? Nope. It’s just time to look outside of the bubble, so let’s do it!

I’ve met business owners in a variety of different fields who have built thriving six figure plus companies in:

  • Tarot and spirituality
  • Green smoothies
  • Dance training
  • Jewelry
  • Nutrition
  • Fitness
  • Martial arts
  • Dog training

Now one thing that I will say is that if you want to grow a business as someone who teaches and trains on a specific topic, you need to be so freaking passionate about that topic that you could talk about it for years. Because you’ll have to.

With any business it takes time to build up an audience and a customer base, and if your only price point is a $30 product, then you’re going to need scale to make it profitable.

In each industry there is a place for premium pricing and choosing where you want to position yourself in the marketplace. You can be the high-end super exclusive private dance instructor. Or you can be the smaller priced DVD teacher available on every shelf.

You can sell inexpensive jewelry to thousands, or be a high-end custom jewelry designer. You could also have a middle of the road nutrition program that’s a stretch for some people, but totally worth it.

Successful Online Business: Does B2B Win?

Now I want to address why it feels like the only examples of success we see are in the business-to-business realm.

First, I’ve noticed that when you’re in business you understand that you need to invest in things in order to make more revenue. So you might be willing to hire a copywriter, a designer, or a coach and pay top dollar.

There’s also the idea that if you can “sell money” then you can charge more for your offerings.

For example, if you’re selling someone a method, shortcut, or idea that can make someone more money, then that information is worth investing in.

It’s like saying “pay me 5 dollars and I’ll show you how to make 10”. It’s no wonder these types of offerings do well, especially if you have a lot of case studies where people got their 10 dollars back easily.

But you know there are many other aspects of life beyond money.

The online business space is also like a huge bubble. If you’re learning about online business, then the only examples you tend to see are from other business trainers.

People who run businesses that don’t rely on business owners as clients have no incentive to advertise how successful their business is. They also don’t have any reason to tell anyone how much income their business generates, or to become known in the business training circles, either.

So this is definitely another reason that we can start to feel like we’re in the business to business echo chamber.

Three Main Business Categories

The main categories that most businesses fall under are: getting laid, getting paid, and not dying. I like to throw spirituality in there too.

There are many ways to pick a niche, but most businesses fall under these major umbrellas.

If you have a business that ultimately helps people with anything in these categories, you can make a successful go at it!

Some of the biggest and most successful companies aren’t in the “getting paid” category at all. Think about all the informercials for P90X and Insanity… Or Proactiv and the Ronco Dehydrator machines. These are all hugely successful companies and products.

So please don’t let the fact that you’re in a different category stop you from pursuing a business you’re passionate about.

What I’ve noticed is that people who fall in love with online business end up becoming trainers in the online business field because they found success themselves and want to share it with others. It’s what becomes their passion.

That’s what happened to me, with my Real Foods Witch business turning into this digital strategy company you see today. I’m passionate about business, health, and people living life through their own conscious decisions.

Inspiration Outside The Business Teaching Realm

Here are some success stories of people who started successful companies outside of the “business training” realm. These are some of my friends, colleagues, clients, and random strangers too!

In no particular order they are: Natalia Gabrea, Briana Borten, Dr. Samantha, Tone It Up, HoopGirl, Shake Your Booty, Simple Green Smoothies, Tracy Matthews, Andrea Nakayama, Blueberry Diapers, Paws and Possibilities

You can also take a look at the local businesses near you – even though they’re not necessarily eligible to be counted as a successful online business, you can definitely learn from them and use them as inspiration.

I Want to Hear Your Opinion!

I know this is a hot topic, so please share it with your friends and let’s keep the discussion going! What business category are you in, and have you ever felt that niggle of doubt that you might not make it big because you don’t teach business?

Getting Press and Making The Most of It

gettingpress_thumbnail

Ever wondered how to get the press to notice the great work you’re doing?

Today, we’re taking a look at the press: how it works, how to get more of it, and how to make the most of it.

The press and most places that you want to be featured are in the content business. They’re constantly needing to come up with fresh, relevant stories, articles, and news to cover.

The more you can put yourself in the shoes of the people who create and curate this content, the easier it will be for you to be get coverage.

My Approach to Getting Press


Here’s my approach to getting press, and using it to your advantage.

1. Identify the places you’d like to be featured.

Just like with guest blogging, you need to know where you want to be published. Find out which publications are most read by your ideal clients, how much of a reach each show or magazine has, and go from there.

You can even rate each of the different places you want to be featured on by how much of a game changer they would be. If it’s a good market fit but it doesn’t sound glamorous, you might put it in the middle of your list, but if it’s both well known and a perfect market fit then you’d put it at the top.

2. Research their editorial policies, find their contributing writers and editors, and get clear on your game plan.

Different outlets have different ways of sourcing their content. If you’re talking about a TV show, you might need to get in touch with a producer to get your story told. If you’re looking at a magazine, you might want to submit an article to the editor.Still other places might not accept solicitations directly, and it might be easier to form a relationship with a regular contributor there.

Learn more about how to do this from Susan Harrow, publicity maven and soundbite siren.

3. Start building relationships before you need them.

I heard this all the time, and I never knew how to apply it. But what it really means is to get to know people who might be able to help you get press down the line, and to be a genuinely helpful person to them upfront without any expectations.

My friend Selena Soo talked about how to do this in an interview during a previous Off The Charts episode.

4. Come up with a newsworthy angle or something fresh for them to cover.

When you feel like you’re ready to go for it, it’s time to put your thinking cap on and come up with a fresh newsworthy angle or something relevant.

In my experience, producers and reporters are often looking for sources to fit into their existing stories. So if they know that you can help them with a certain topic, they’ll be happy for the help.

5. Submit your work and follow up.

It’s time to write your article, send in your side of the story by answering questions, and then get ready to follow up.If you’re writing for a publication, they’ll usually have guidelines for how long you can expect to wait before you hear back. In the television business, things move quickly so make sure to stay available for questions and changes to the schedule.

Sometimes you have a more general announcement to make, and you just want to make some noise via a press release that gets distributed across different news wires and networks. These can also be picked up by other news outlets and lead to more interview opportunities.

6. Publicize your press, and repeat.

Finally, once your quote is posted, you’ve got your article published, or snippets of your news story make it onto television…it’s time to celebrate!It’s also time to make the most of the press you just received.

I know that many people think getting mentioned on television or having an article in a magazine means they’re business is set for life. But in my experience, even getting onto television for a major morning show does not guarantee that anyone is going to type in your website or even remember your business after breakfast.

But that doesn’t mean that publicity is useless, you just happen to get most of the benefits out of publicizing your own press.

You get to lovingly brag about your accomplishments across your social media sites, on your press and home pages, and in your biography.

So if you’ve been featured, it’s time to add a logo to your “As seen in” section on your website, and share it proudly with the world.

After all, if you’ve been featured in mainstream media it gives you more of a legitimate feel, and it also inspires more trust and confidence in new visitors to your website.

Now it’s just time to rinse and repeat!

I’d love to know what results and successes you’ve had with being featured in the press. What tricks have worked wonders for you? Leave a comment below and let me know, so we can celebrate your successes together!
