EPISODE 35 | The Danger of Having a ‘Broke’ Money Mindset

Do you walk around with a constant low level feeling that the bottom might fall out from under your life at any moment? Do you feel guilt or shame or anxiety when you spend money? Do you just ignore the numbers and hope for the best? Chances are you have a ‘broke” money mindset and it’s holding you back!

I invited Shannon Lee Simmons to join me for today’s show to discuss money, why we as individuals get so worked up over the concept of money, where those negative feelings can stem from, and of course – how we can work through those roadblocks so that we can begin to get a handle on our money, breathe a big sigh of relief and relax (HINT: she does NOT want you to budget!!)

If anyone can take the worry out of money, Shannon can! She is SO fun and light and also totally knows her shit when it comes to finance. We walk through some of the key concepts of her new book Worry Free Money to explore what a ‘broke’ mindset is, how to shift your thinking about money,  why you should NOT be budgeting (and what to do instead) and we even dive into her theory around the “Beyonce factor” – trust me, this is a thing!

We had such a great response from Episode 22 where we spoke all about Money Blocks that I knew we had to return to this money conversation – for both your business and your life, we have to start talking about money more often if we want to move forward and get out of the constant feeling of overwhelm.
