We move into a new Financial Year, closing off the previous 52 weeks.
For many it will be a celebration of reaching significant milestone (or numerous ones), above and beyond what they could never have imagined as greatly as what has showed up. For others a reflection on getting 'nearly there' identifying the tweaks, keen for this new round. For others they did not get here at all, their business became a casualty of one or more things that derailed that version of their dream.
So here we are setting out again. What would you like the story to look like across the next 52 weeks?
Two things I invite you to do before you set sail
1) Write down the truth, the real inner stuff why your business exists
Start with this - Pretend like you are telling it to the kids, or your cat or dog! start here
We all want our special loved ones to see us. We can make that hard, and keep the truth from them because it seems silly, not important, not a priority, we feel raw, or even shame, or we are not really clear of it all ourselves (yep, that one!!)
So tell it here, type it out and hit send. By doing so, I know it will elevate a whole new abundant vibration for you. Your soul will feel a new warmth, a gentle fire glowing.
Have you got the courage to try it?
2) What is the number that will give you the freedom you seek?
When we boil it all down, we want peace! We get that when we understand how freedom looks like in our version of life. We exchange money to gain more freedoms.
This freedom is in our access to shelter, food, clothing, safety, experiences, education, comfort, sanctuary, love, compassion, impact and so on.
What is the number that you want from your business that will bring the next stage of freedom you seek?
Work out the number - annually, quarterly, monthly, weekly, daily if you love that clarity
What can be the number? Well this will change depending on how keen you are to think and talk about money details. If you are a Maverick, Accumulator, Ruler - get into the nitty gritty. Celebrity, Connector, Nurturer, Romantic - stay with me here, it will truly be an upgrade when you do this activity!!
Some will use sales/turnover figures. Some will use the profit number after expenses. Let's just use either of those to keep it simple.
You want to know THE number that gives you Freedom this month, then next month, next quarter - you can move out the number as buy into more belief.
This will be banging up against your inner resistance as you've read this. Welcome, it's time to get you expanding in understanding your money mindset, and becoming more familiar with the ways our inner sabotaging about receiving looks like.
Oh I love how talking about this!! It's seriously the #1 block so many of us women generate over and over...and why I have become so passionately focused on revealing these clues to women business owners.
I had no logical connection that this was even a thing, let alone that it was impacting all the 'external' tasks and activities as I would work hard, hard hard...work, work, work!!
Thousands of hours invested into dream and goals and yet it was like I would take-up the drawbridge and resist the receiving flow.
Where I started to learn about Money Mindset was by finding out what my Sacred Money Archetypes® were, how they created my Money Personality, Examples of how they showed up each day... Find out Whats your Archetype?.
It's a freebie... I want you to be encouraged to get this priceless insight!
Once that information dropped into my consciousness, I found a course that took me through a range of activities that each uncovered another belief, a past story, a ceiling around how what I allow to receive, or keep! I kept going through the activities there were around 12 of them and I got to reset my relationship with money.
Truly fascinating experience! Nearly 5 years on, I can see the significance and lasting impact of being an avid student in learning about my own beliefs weekly!!!
I'm sharing those exact activities, teamed them up with the 'how to' questions I get asked all the time about building a business. It makes sense to pair them up - the internal and the external. Learn more about it here
Using our business as the vehicle to get to our freedom levels, we cant focus on just the external.
