6 Pack of Abs? Let's Talk About a 6 Pack of Wealth
We hear all over the internet and in real life about a 6 Pack of Abs. I remember reading countless articles throughout the years especially when I struggled with >55 lbs. of excess weight at times. I remember finally getting all my weight off and keeping it off in 2014. I remember the feeling of finally having the elusive 6 Pack. I remember thinking WOW this is a LOT of work! I remember falling in love (and still do) with being healthy inside and out all the time.
When I first started sharing my story and my before and after, my business grew 25X in that year.
I was honored and amazed at how many people the story inspired. You can see one of the posts here.
This made me start thinking about my own story of judging myself and my worth with money, status, recognition....
and a 6 Pack of Wealth.
The physical transformation revealed the layers inside of fears, insecurities, and worthiness. Prior to being an entrepreneur, I had served in over 7 industries after graduate school in roles from Director to Analysts to a Chief Audit Executive alongside the C-Suite. For years, I had generated 7-9 figure results for others repeatedly, and maintained side hustles all along.
Yet, I found myself in 2014 (year three of being a full-time entrepreneur) on shaky ground. I found myself unclear on the next steps in my life and business. I had a consulting company (Inclusivitie) and it was doing great (almost six figures at that point), and now I had this blossoming business on social media. At the same time, I felt terrified and unworthy. I felt things were moving too fast and/or out of my control. For years as a CPA and with Corporate Support, I had a backbone outside myself. Yes, I ran side hustles and companies on the side. Yet, being full-time and being all-in is a completely different ball game.
I allowed myself to do something I hadn't done ever before - slow down, breathe, be patient, and get clear.
I began to get clear on not only my business (rolling my passions and purpose into an all in one lifestyle brand with health, wealth, and business in 1 - think AirBnb or Uber or Amazon of Transformation.); but also wealth with the 6 Pack of Wealth.
The 6 Pack of Wealth helps reveal energy and behaviors of money. It also helps create an order and flow with wealth to help increase clarity.
I completely get it! Before 2014, I had reached six figures while helping others 7-9 figures of wealth annually. At the same time, because of feelings of lack, insecurities, and worthiness, my own money was in chaos. I also often did not want to face it at all.
I was also super overwhelmed with being 100% responsible with wealth. Here is a sneak peak into our monthly mastermind and academy and insight into the 6 Pack!
I think we can all agree — creating a life and business you love involves elevating our energy when it comes to wealth. It involves changing our minds from all the lack, fears, and insecurities we have allowed when it comes to creating a life and business we love, making money, and giving back.
One of our focuses in our lifestyle platform is How to Make Money, and teach others how to do the same.
I realized the incredible insight in dealing with the internal, and the stories we tell ourselves; as well as the practical and the How-To. I know first hand from not only being a CPA but generating others countless results, yet not feeling like I was worthy of freedom until the process within the last seven years, that no matter what external evidence shows up of abundance and wealth - we will not hold on to it - if we don't believe we are worthy of having it.
So, I've put together highlights of the
6 Pack of Wealth.
It is definitely spiritual and mental. It is also an art and a science. It is also accepting we have never arrived. There are always new levels of growth.
Money is simply energy of receiving and giving in service exponentially.
You, my friend, want to elevate the energy with your wealth. You know that you may serve more, receive more, grow more, and there has got to be a smarter way!
So, since you really want to be a Money Maker and get
a 6 Pack of Wealth,
this post is for you.
In this blog post, I’m sharing highlights on the 6 Pack of Wealth.
This may help you whether you are simply trying to get a handle on your money and currently work for someone else, have a side hustle, are a long time entrepreneur, lifestyle entrepreneur, run a multi-million or multi-billion dollar company (I've seen money issues everywhere and even done fraud cases too!) or want any of these avenues to be your next move!
Plus, if you want to create a life and business you love - don't you owe it to yourself and your community to to invest the time to learn to be a better money maker and manager?
How do you measure up with this wealth insight?
According to Market Watch, most Americans are one paycheck from being homeless.
According to CNBC, the average family makes about $74,000 and shells out $57,000.
According to Nasdaq, the average family median debt is about $16,000.
What about giving to help solve the world's problems like homelessness and ending cancer and much more?
Even more interesting, is that these statistics tend to climb alarmingly. So what can we do?
it is time we all start to take 100% responsibility for our wealth, and take on getting a 6 Pack of Wealth and not leaving it in school' s, bosses, governments, , or anyone else's hands but our own.
Scary? I believe it far outweighs and beats the alternative.
Let's talk about the bright side and how we may take action in the 6 Pack of Wealth to turn around our own situations, and those of our country, and our world.
1. Get Control of Spending
I've found in many years of working with people with their personal finances (used to also work in lending at a credit union for 7+ years in undergrad and grad school), entrepreneurs, mid-size companies, and global companies that there is often very little focus or attention paid to where is the money going.
It is very easy to get caught up in the day to day, or to not want to face it. It is time to get control and reframe your mind, or make it fun (I play monopoly sometime or do financial scrapbooking of my vision!)
The simpler and easier we make it, the faster you get results. My go to is Mint.
Mint is an amazing free tool that allows you to create a budget, get alerts, fuse your debit and credit cards, real time, and tracks your trends from every angle! The first year I used them I helped transform my own wealth >50%, and have helped several entrepreneurs, bloggers, coaches, and influencers do so!
