How do you feel hearing the word ‘money’?
Does it make you feel uncomfortable? Uneasy? Maybe excited?
More than almost anything else connected to entrepreneurship, money can bring up a lot of emotions. If you want to be financially successful, you need to heal your relationship to money.
My guest Megan O’Neill is a business mindset strategist who works primarily with female entrepreneurs, helping them identify and remedy limiting beliefs and blocks that hold them back.
Much of Megan’s work deals with beliefs absorbed in childhood. These legacy beliefs form the foundation of mindset and can have huge effects on how we feel about relationships, work — and money.
Many of us grew up seeing a lot of cultural imagery that showed women not having a lot of power when it comes to money. And in many of our families, men tended to make many of the bigger decisions when it came to family finances.
Remember, it wasn’t too long ago that women weren’t allowed to hold mortgages or have their own credit cards without a man co-signing.
This type of messaging taught us that women didn’t deserve money and couldn’t be trusted with it.
In order to feel confident about your relationship to money, you need to change those limiting legacy beliefs!
These beliefs can lead you to discount your offers unnecessarily, avoid negotiating, and resist promoting yourself.
“We still have a lot of work to do around our money mindset, and to feel confident and comfortable,” Megan explains. “We need to go to the next level of money.”
