How do you decide what the next step in your business will be?

So if you do realize that your business is no longer working to help you achieve the kind of life that you want, how do you change it? You need to learn how to Konmari your business. Ask yourself, does it spark joy? Think about what the next stage of your business should look like. What kind of mental and energetic space does your business take up in your life? Being more deliberate with your time and your business will help you decide how to level up. No one is going to graduate you to the next level. You have to do that yourself. You may even have to leave some clients behind if you don’t find that they fit into the new definition of what your business is.

How can knowing more about yourself help you in your business?

Any personality test can help you with your business. The more you know yourself the more you can apply that knowledge to your business. Personality tests can help you understand your strengths and your weaknesses. When you understand your personality traits you can better understand what you value and how to work with people. Do you have a favorite personality test? There is a short list in the resources section if you need some inspiration.

What are the money archetypes?

Knowing your money archetype can help you understand your relationship with money so you can make more of it and become a more successful entrepreneur. Here are the money archetypes explained:

  • Nurturers are over-givers with big hearts. They can have a hard time becoming entrepreneurs because they just want to give, give, give. Nurturers want to create more good in the world

  • Connectors bring people together. They have an eye for collaboration and match-making.

  • Alchemists are idea generators and manifestors. They can change the world.

  • Accumulators are really good with money. They are often quite frugal and balk at the idea of debt.

  • Romantics love ease and flow and beauty. They can be lazy but should embrace passive income.

  • Celebrities also love flow and beauty but they want the spotlight all on themselves. They have the ability to teach self-worth and self-care, but often don’t want to live with the reality of their money situation.

  • Mavericks are risk-takers and rebels. They are bold and can be great entrepreneurs.

How to Maximize Your Money Mindset #36

Episode 36 is a bit of a nostalgic one for Maelisa and Amber since they reminisce on how they met. On this episode they discuss the book Get Rich Lucky Bitch. The dynamic duo actually met while reading this book as part of an online book club. They both grew to be huge fans of the author, Denise Duffield-Thomas. Your money mindset can be a bit of a woo-woo topic, but having the right mindset about money really does impact every part of your life. How you think about money can affect your business, your relationships, and your home life. Listen to this episode to hear how to maximize your money mindset.

What you focus on is what you will manifest

Yes, manifesting is totally a woo-woo topic, but there is a bit of science behind it. If you make something your focus and you concentrate on achieving it you can change the outcome by changing behaviors that open up new opportunities. Changing your mindset about a topic like money will change your beliefs about what you can make happen. The stories that you tell yourself impact what you do and how you act. Amber was able to help change the way she thinks about money by no longer telling people that she likes to spend money as much as she makes it. Something as small as this can really affect behavior. Whatever you focus your mind on will expand this can be either in a positive or in a negative way. Listen to this episode to learn how to manifest a good money mindset.

If you constantly compare yourself to others you will never measure up

It is can be easy to stress out when you compare yourself with other people. You need to remember that not everyone is completely honest about how much money they have made. When someone says that they made a million dollars, they may not be disclosing that they actually spent 1.2 million to get there. When you put pressure on yourself you cannot enjoy your successes. Remember that not every business will make millions of dollars. It is important to consider what rich means to you.
