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...
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...

It’s impossible to get a high paying job during COVID. Everyone knows that.
Except two of my clients just landed $200k+ jobs.
Let’s start with ‘Rob’ (not his real name - he’s a high-profile executive and wants to remain anonymous).
Rob left his last exec role 18 months ago. Now you’d think it would be easy for a high level boss to walk into another well paying job - but it’s often not.
You see, there just aren’t that many exec roles around at any one time.
And the recruitment process is usually a formality because they already know who they want. These types of jobs aren’t generally advertised on online job boards either.
Rob would sit for months and get zero calls from recruiters.
And for the roles Rob did apply for, he got rejected every time. With each knock-back, his confidence took a further hit, until one day he knew he had a problem he couldn't fix on his own.
Rob had progressed to the fourth interview stage for a...

Today I want to share my story about how I got out of $97,000 of credit card debt.
I felt inspired to share this because a friend of mine told me yesterday that she thought I’d had a perfect life and I’d never struggled with money.
Can you believe it?
If that’s what my friend thought, then it means I’ve been pretty darn good at keeping my debt a secret… and I did it mostly because I was so embarrassed about it.
I’ve been keeping it a secret when in fact, it’s the whole reason I went looking for help and stumbled across money blocks.
Finding and releasing my money blocks changed my entire money story and also allowed me to quit my corporate job and create my dream business.
I shared a video today in my private Facebook group about my personal story and why I’m so passionate about showing business owners how to fix their relationship with money.
I wanted you to see it too, even if you’re not in my...
When you lose sight of how much you spend, it is really easy for small things to add up and get out of control, keeping you stuck in that feeling that you’re “Just bad with money.”
Get back on top of your money by increasing the visibility of your expenses!
Let’s look at how it works…
Tracking Allows You to Identify the Problem and Manage It
When you pay attention to what you spend and you keep those numbers visible in the front of your mind, then you can actually take practical action to manage your money game.
In the Money Mindset Bootcamp that I run, one of the big things that we do is to look at your money in real terms. We gather the data of your income and spending habits, and from there we set what your budget is.
The first step is to review your bank statements and bills and do the math to get an idea of roughly what it is that you spend and where. (Some people don’t even realize they spend...
