Paying back $100k of long-term consumer debt in 9 months is something I’m incredibly proud of.
Not just because of the hard work and the strategies it required, but because I had to search deep within myself and completely shift my relationship with money.
See, a few years ago, I was presenting an illusion of success to the world.
I had a high-paying finance job with a major media company and a couple of side hustles… but I was also hiding a huge secret - I was in $100k of consumer debt.
Even though I was earning good money and I could pay my bills, I found myself stuck on a financial rollercoaster where I would make great money and watch it all go out the door.
I hardly saved anything and getting a deposit together for a property seemed like a distant dream.
I also desperately wanted to grow my coaching business and leave my 9 to 5, but I felt like an imposter.
Here I was - a coach and a professional in the finance industry and yet even with the best money...
“I’ve been in this business now for 46 years and every now and then I run across someone who I recognise… they’ve just got something special. Caroline Labour is such a person”.
That’s what the legendary Bob Proctor said about me in the video above.
If you don't know Bob, he was one of the main teachers in The Secret.
This endorsement means the world to me because it represents so much more than just a glowing review from one of my mentors who happens to be famous (although I'm pretty chuffed with that too!).
Did I ever tell you how it came about?
It all started 18 years ago when I first read one of Bob’s books. Back then, I had big dreams but even bigger money mindset blocks that kept making me stumble.
I remember wishing one day I'd be successful enough to meet Bob and hire one of his coaches.
Because of my backward thinking, that dream stayed out of my reach and Bob gradually faded from my mind.
Meet Toni. She’s not a celebrity, not famous, but she’s got an incredible story worth sharing. She managed to clear $100k of credit card debt (and you can too).
We started together about 6 months ago, and Toni was completely overwhelmed.
The anxiety, the guilt, feeling like a failure, wondering how she’d ever get a handle on the debt.
Even though she had the option of selling her house, she knew she had to address the underlying issue that had gotten her there in the first place, otherwise, it’d just happen again- except this time she wouldn’t have a house to bail herself out with.
She’d done course after course and spent a whole lot of money searching for that magic pill to help her get out of her situation. But it was only when she enrolled in my Debt To Diamonds course that she finally got her money mindset right- and the numbers followed.
“We met on a cruise a couple of years ago and I thought I could work with you. It was your...
The first time I felt shame about money was when I was 4 years old, and it happened somewhere totally unexpected.
I used to have a friend at school who got free snacks because her Mum volunteered at the school canteen and we’d often go together and get something tasty. One day, I went without my friend and asked for a strawberry frozen yoghurt (my favourite) and her Mum told me I’d have to start paying for my food.
I hadn’t known, of course, that she’d been paying for those ‘free’ snacks behind the scenes all along. What I did know was that I stood there, 4 years old, suddenly aware that I needed money and deeply humiliated by not having any.
I started looking around at the other kids and comparing myself. The rich kids had money for the canteen and Reebok shoes. Their parents were doctors or lawyers. I wasn’t like them. The shame I felt stopped me from telling my parents about what had happened and though I didn’t realise it at...

Think it's possible to make an extra $4K per month by writing it on a slip of paper?
For most people, it isn't. They write out the same goals year after year, or make vision boards... and nothing changes.
But it just happened to my client, Karen.
See, Karen recently stumbled across a goal she wrote a year ago while she was doing tax prep.
“I am earning fifteen hundred dollars per week,” she wrote.
Karen had forgotten all about this slip of paper.
Like a lot of people, Karen had set goals like this in the past with no luck. She felt stuck because she didn’t have the time to work on her goals or get extra support.
I'm sure you've heard that famous definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
Karen realized that's what she was doing and she decided to try a different approach. She followed up on a conversation we had two years ago and ended up joining my Money Blocks Breakthrough Program.
Karen wanted to make more...
Food or exercise? Which do you think matters most when you're trying to get in shape?
Before you answer, let me share a personal story about what I'm celebrating this week... I'm feeling stoked because for the first time in months, I can fit into my skinny jeans!
I don't talk about weight and body image much because people usually roll their eyes when I do. They say things like "you're skinny, you have nothing to worry about" or "what do you know about putting on weight?".
But as any woman knows - and I'm sure a lot of guys do too - body image is such a personal thing. It's not the numbers on the scale that matter, it's how you see yourself.
When you look in the mirror, you don't just see your physical reflection. You see what you already believe about yourself - which is often shaped by your life experiences.
When I was younger, I struggled with my weight a lot. I went from being a super skinny kid to filling out in my early teens and staying chubby for years. It's only after...
The other day I replaced a cartridge in a high-end water purifier.
It was meant to take 5 minutes… but it took me over an hour (and after a couple of tantrums, I finally asked someone to help me!)
Was there something wrong with the filter? Nope.
Did I follow the instructions incorrectly? Not this time (although that has happened before!).
The problem was, I hadn’t used this particular water purifier in several years. This caused the filter cartridge to get over-saturated and it created a tight seal inside the unit. So separating the filter cartridge from the lid required a mammoth effort.
At first I felt annoyed because the advertised '5 minute filter change' had failed by miles. But of course I accepted it was my fault, and because of one thing - neglect.
It's actually a story I see playing out all the time in the mindset space.
Most business owners believe their mindset is fine because they read 'Think And Grow Rich' ten years ago. So they go about spending all their...
