The Wealthy Woman

The Wealthy Woman is here to make a difference in many lives. She has found her calling, and said yes to it, over and over again.
 
Along the way, there were many times when she wondered if her dreams could come true, if it was all possible, and if she’d be able to afford it all.
 
Then she learned about Universal truths, which insure her success. Ever since then, she has lived in a state of trust, and knows that her dreams are meant to come true.
 
She is now more connected to her own magic than ever before. Happy opportunities seem to fall into her lap. She creates a delicious life every day, and it keeps getting better and better. As she connects to this magic, money begins to flood to her, and happy clients come forward with readiness. She feels rich, she feels successful, and lives a life of incredible joy.
 
Her idea of rich doesn’t look like the stereotypes. It doesn’t necessarily include mansions or sports cars, though it may (or she borrows these every now and then.) The Wealthy Woman may be backpacking through the Alps, so she can admire the turquoise lakes, and caress the flowers growing on the hillside. She may be living in a home she’s wanted to own since she was very young, and every time she steps inside it, she laughs with contentment. She may be on silent retreats in the shimmering countrysides of India, or enamored with roadside restaurants in Vietnam, which from the outside may look like beaten up shacks.
 
She defined riches for herself.
 
In the process, she stepped into a delicious life that gives her everything she’s ever wanted.
 
And making money feels like bliss.
 
If creating money was once hard for her, it now feels easy. She’s just not worried about it now, and dollars and euros no longer hold the emotional charge that they once did. She has tapped into the bank of the Universe, and can create income on demand. If her funds ever feel a touch low, she doesn’t let it debilitate her. She knows how to create more money whenever she needs it, and she does. In the process, she changes lives.
 
She appreciates how her free-flowing income can be circulated toward businesses she believes in. With this money, she happily books trips to day spas, has a housecleaner whenever she needs one, and pays for financial guidance so her money can continue to grow. Her income gives her plane tickets, trips abroad, and the opportunity to share the gift of travel with people she loves. The Wealthy Woman also happily pays for quiet afternoons in restaurants, and finds that in that peaceful stillness, new ideas come to her.
 
She hires professionals who take care of her website, support her customers, and who look after aspects of her business that she’s not particularly suited for. She is immensely grateful for the gifts that her wealth brings her.
 
To grow, she continues to invest in herself and her business.
 
The Wealthy Woman lets intuition lead her to every opportunity that feels right, and she doesn’t care if other people judge her for her purchases. Her heightened intuition has led her to clients, mentors, and the many wonderful opportunities that support her business.
 
The Wealthy Woman is not tethered to a million possessions, since it is the experience of life that she will always appreciate and carry with her. She is very content with what she owns, and often likes to lighten the load by letting go of physical possessions that no longer match who she has grown into. It makes room for more riches.
 
At the same time, she enjoys gliding her hands over silky fabrics while searching for new clothes to adorn her body. She feels gorgeous walking into a Chanel boutique, and equally delights in looking for wardrobe treasures at thrift shops. She adores original artwork that inspires her, and if her intuition says “yes” to owning it, the price does not matter.
 
The Wealthy Woman also has absolute respect for her body and loves the sultry feeling of being comfortable in her own skin. This self-respect is visible in the way that she walks. The glow that comes through her is accentuated every time she bites into organic fruit and whenever she chooses the food that will nourish her physical body and her taste for fun. She’s not afraid to eat a 3-course meal, indulge in an afternoon hot chocolate, or to let her fine taste guide her.
 
The Wealthy Woman surrounds herself with the most delightful circle of people she knows, and is completely nourished by a day of laughter with them. She is selective about who she keeps company with, and has found a way to lovingly withdraw her energy from those who no longer fit, while bringing in friends and colleagues who are a delight to be with.
 
If the Wealthy Woman has a family, they play a huge role in her life, and it is her greatest joy to snuggle with them when she’s not running her business.
 
If she is thinking about having a family, she’s already setting up her life and mindset in a way that will greatly support her future children and her spouse.
 
To the Wealthy Woman, life is a great blend of beauty, and a sigh of bliss.

All day long, I have been preparing my environment for success.

Sometimes when I return from traveling, I jump back into work right away, without a lot of time for me in between. Instead, I spent the day rearranging my physical environment in various ways, and also creating an internal environment (the way I feel) that is based on leisure and pleasure.

 

The right kind of environment always seems to lead to more opportunities for fun, friendly interactions, and creating money. (And one of my favorite things is to constantly experiment with making money in ways that feel like bliss.)

Fruit Compote and Vanilla Nut Cream~ I spent the first part of the morning baking cinnamon apples, and then listened to a class on Shamanism that Rose Cole was leading ..because I believe in magical things, coincidences, communicating through the dream world, and energy healing.

~ I restocked my refrigerator with everything from pomegranates to cantaloupe, and artichokes to pizza ingredients.

~ I soaked up the heat of the fall sun while eating a delicious and filling afternoon meal.

~ OneRebublic’s new song, “Future Looks Good” was the song I listened to over and over again.

~ I composted all of the flowers in the house that were past their prime, and remade bouquets with the flowers that are still blooming.

~ I scrubbed the toilet (I actually really like scrubbing toilets)

~ We also have a heavy storm approaching Washington State, so it was fun to prepare for a “slumber party weekend” by filling bottles with extra water, buying groceries, gassing up the car, and washing and drying all of my favorite cozy clothes.

 

So you might be wondering: “Ava, how’s preparing an environment for success working for you so far?”

My answer: I feel calm and fully supported in all ways (financially, through delicious food, and through friendships and family). I received word of more money showing up in my life, and tomorrow, I start working with a new entrepreneurial client. I’m also about to dive into a few weeks of writing my book, A Woman’s Treasure, and am quite excited to be writing in the environment I’ve created.

Last week, on a one-day road trip, we stopped in a French bakery for treats to take with us. As a slice of carrot cake was wrapped up for the journey, the woman behind the counter started talking about her favorite cafe near where we were headed. She encouraged us to have lunch there.
 
On our drive through the mountains, we looked up the restaurant online, click on the “Menu” button, and…. did not find a menu. Instead, they had a note saying that they use seasonal produce and that the menu constantly changes.
 
While I fully appreciate the use of fresh ingredients, the marketer in me thought:
Menu photo“If I owned this restaurant, and had a rotating menu, I would still want to have something up on the ‘Menu’ page of my website, to give people an idea of what they could purchase. I’d likely take some gorgeous photos of past lunch and dinner options, and have a description of each meal accompanying several photos.
 
I’d say that ‘Our prices range from ____ to ____’, or ‘Meals start at ____” to give people a sense of what kind of bill to expect at the end of their meal.
 
Also, if a tab says “Menu,” but then doesn’t have a menu on it, customers may feel disappointed when a webpage doesn’t actually have what it says it has. This is why it’s so important to have an easy to understand display of what’s for sale.”
 
Later, upon going back to look at the website for this restaurant one more time, I find that there was in fact a menu!
But….it was hidden waaay at the bottom of the site, and was not easy to see on a smart phone.
 
From this experience, I was reminded of several things: Business owners should be bold about what they have for sale. Not obnoxious, but obvious about what they have to offer. It should be easy for the people who are looking at your business to find out how they can work with you, and what they can purchase from you.

JMM_0564Someone recently asked me how they could start a business without any money. It’s a great question, and the ideas I’m about to share will be helpful if you’re looking to grow an existing business, or start a completely new one.

First, I want to address the belief that you “don’t have any money.” Never is this actually true. You will always have access to money for your business. It’s always there, and you’ll be able to find it when you need it. (And trust me, you will need it. I don’t know a single entrepreneur who has started a company with absolutely no business funding.) Be prepared to find money to invest in your company, and have trust that you will make that money back.

 

Here are 4 ways that you can start and grow your business without spending a lot of money:

1. Go to free events, classes and open houses to mingle with strangers who may turn into colleagues or potential clients.

I absolutely love meeting potential clients at open houses and dinner parties! I meet a lot of potential from events like these. Most open houses are free to attend, and you’ll meet some fabulous people, if you are willing to strike up conversation, and if you aren’t just there to “get clients.” Remember, people can feel when you are “needy” or on the prowl for clients, and it’s quite a turn off. Simply go to these events with a willingness to meet new people, and be open to wherever that relationship leads.

 

2. Ask an existing and more established business if you can come in and teach a class at their location, for their clientele.

It’s wonderful to be hosted as a speaker like this, and I did this often in my first couple years of business (at financial companies, yoga studios and many other locations). The wonderful thing about this arrangement is that both of you will help promote the event (which means that your colleague’s business gets seen by everyone you invite), and you often don’t have to pay a rental fee to use the space. Both you and the business hosting can split the costs of marketing materials, and then enjoy a great collaborative event, where you’ll both benefit.

 

3.  I often recommend that my United States based clients connect with an organization called SCORE, for free legal advice.
Interestingly, I first met my attorney (who I now pay to see) at SCORE.

 

4.  Internet marketing is also nearly free.

Posting a video to YouTube requires a cell phone with a camera, and the internet. Your YouTube video may be found by someone on the other side of the world who loves your energy so much that they ask to hire you.

I hang out on Facebook several times a day (again, for free, as long as I have a computer and internet access), and have made thousands of dollars there. It’s all because I have facebook conversations that are really fun to have, and then people ask to hire me.

 

 

Now that you havephoto a few ideas, it’s time to go out and take action on the one that feels most aligned with your business. Get started with the tips I’ve just shared, and if you want even more, I’ve created a resource to help with this. It’s my digital program called Build A Richer Business, that you can get started with at any time. Simply email us at Support@AvaWaits.com, and we’ll get you all set up with access to the program.

Let’s talk about 2 pieces of news in Britain and the United States right now.

First, this week, we learned that due to a lawsuit and some other legalities, Cadbury chocolates and a few other types of British candy will no longer be shipped to the United States. Immediately, Americans were shocked, and I’m sure that many people made a quick trip to the grocery store to stock up on candies that would soon no longer be available.

Then, in New York, as intense winter weather approached early this week, the entire city stocked up on food and supplies. Within hours, many of the grocery stores were completely sold out of kale. Yep, everyone stocked up on kale. (My New York readers ~ It’s so cool to me that you wanted to serve kale at your blizzard slumber parties, and I absolutely cracked up seeing your photos of kale-less grocery store shelves. The health nut in me salutes you!)

 

What can we learn from all of this?

When people can’t have something, or can’t have a lot of something, they want it even more.

 

Just the other day, we learned that a cute local bakery in our city would be closing in a week. I was out 5 hours later to buy several containers of their vegan espresso coriander ice cream, which is now being stored in our deep freezer (because I may never be able to buy it again!).

Limiting factors help people to take action. Americans only have so much time left to buy Cadbury chocolate bars from stores based in the United States. Residents in New York City had a few hours to buy all of the kale they could find, before the snowstorm hit.

My suggestion today is for you to look at how you can make your audience more aware of some of the limits that you have in your business. There are probably a few honest limitations that you are aware of, but your customer may not be.

~ For example, I’ve found that it’s personally ideal for me if I have no more than 3 client calls in 1 day. I do this for energetic reasons, since more than 3 calls a day can cause my voice to get tired, and my energy to wane. I want to give my clients the best service possible, so my own energy gauge limits the amount of private clients I can work with at one time. It makes these spots very special, and because of this, I have to be more selective about which entrepreneurs I support.

~ If you sell artwork, your customer may need to put in an order by a certain date to receive their artwork by a certain holiday.

~ If you have a new service available, you may only have time in your schedule to work with 4 new clients.

~ If you have a product that you’re no longer going to sell, let people know how many days they have left to purchase it.

 

Keep in mind that sharing your business limitations is not about tricking people into feeling as though their isn’t enough, because there is enough (and you can always start a waiting list if you need to, or create a digital product that can be sold to many people). But honestly, you may not be able to deliver certain products or services to everyone who requests them at once. It’s worth letting your audience know about that.

The people who are serious about buying from you will then step forward, and they will do so quickly when they understand those limits, and when they see how precious your time is.

A recap of the year is one of my favorite things to write, because it’s a place to be really honest. Here you’ll find several stories, learning experiences, celebrations, and strategies that you can use, which all come from my 2014 year in business. (The recap from 2013 has some fantastic ideas in it, too!)

 

 

What Happened in 2014:

 

Updates on “The Book,” as of the end of December 2014

All I can say is that this has been a BIG project. I was hoping that the book would have been completed in 2014, but writing an entire book is a bigger and more detailed project than I anticipated. Currently, the manuscript has just gone through it’s first round of structural edits, and I’m now restructuring the layout, and naming chapters.

I’ve taken several personal writing retreats throughout the year, which have greatly helped me complete the manuscript. Back in January of 2014, I spent 3 weeks at a waterfront mansion that was on loan to me, and I had the opportunity to write a good portion of the book then. After that, I took a break from the book for about 5 months. When I was inspired again, I resumed writing at home, on airplanes, and at a cute little house in West Seattle that was loaned to me for a weekend. Writing in different locations helps me to be more creative.

Midway through the year, I also recognized that I needed to have some one-to-one support to really finish the book. I hadn’t quite found the right person to assist me in this…until fall of 2014. In the most magical way, I was reunited with a friend and colleague of 5 years, who happened to be exactly the right person to guide me to complete the rest of the manuscript. I hired her right away, and we’re still working together.

 

Collaboration

It’s been a lot of fun to interview fabulous colleagues all year long, and I am very grateful to all of my guests, as well as those of you who invited me on your telesummits in 2014. At www.AvaWaits.com, you can easily scan the Blog and find recordings of many of the interviews from guests that joined me in 2014. The topics range from “Cracking the Charisma Code” to “Why Creative People are Often Broke & How They Hold the Greatest Prosperity Potential” to “How Your Physical Health will make you Rich.”

 

I started watching Oprah

I will admit it: I’ve only ever seen one episode of Oprah in my life. But after discovering how much I enjoy interviewing other people, I started scanning the internet and really admire her interview techniques. I also figure that I should pay a little more attention to Oprah, because this year, I found out that I have some huge astrological similarities to her. It’s made me very curious.

 

Traveling in 2014

Ava and Jack CanfieldI took a couple trips to Los Angeles this year. One was for The Unstoppable Gala, where I was very excited to meet author Jack Canfield, who co-created the Chicken Soup for the Soul series (I’m currently learning book marketing techniques through a training course that he developed). I couldn’t resist another journey to Maui and Kauai, so I talked my boyfriend into going back (his family lives on Maui), and also made a quick trip to visit my brother Monks on Kauai. I’m so glad that I went to the Hawaiian Islands again, because one of the swamis gifted me with an entire outline of a new chapter for the book I’m writing. It feels as though the book has been blessed, and I am very grateful.

Later in the fall, I attended a nutrition conference in New York City. Many of my clients and students attend or have attended The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and I was so excited to meet some of them in person in NYC! Right after that, I traveled to Richmond, Virginia to visit family and museums (because giving your brain a break from work and wandering through Art Deco and Imperial China displays is very important every now and then).

Money

At the beginning of 2014, I considered my money goals, and decided that this year would mostly be about maintaining the level of income that I received in 2013. Sure, I was open to income growth, but I wouldn’t put a lot of pressure on myself to expand. The biggest intentions of 2014 have been to write the book, maintain my income, and also have money to cover business expenses and big projects. It all worked out.

Back in 2013, I had doubled my income from the previous year of 2012.

In 2014, my business income rose by about 20% over 2013.

 

Sometimes I feel like there is this misconception that you take home all of the money you make in a business. I wish that more people understood that this is not true. Much of my business income gets happily reinvested into my company. I made some large company purchases this year (book costs, writing mentorship, photo shoots, a high quality camera, a new website that is near completion, and a new car to take me to speaking engagements). I also paid back somewhere between $6,000 to $8,000 toward debts, which felt really great.

Feels like bliss biz card front Oct2014

Here’s my newest business card, which will give you a little hint about what the new website will look like!

 

The Car

Some of you know that I didn’t own a car of my own for about 9 years. With the location of my home, I was in close proximity to most everything that I needed, without a car. Over the years I have walked many miles, borrowed several vehicles, rented cars, and enjoyed the company of my wonderful boyfriend, who adores driving his car with me in the passenger seat.

As the book started getting closer to publication, I saw that it was absolutely going to be necessary to have a vehicle to drive to speaking engagements. I needed a car that would have room in the back to hold copies of the book, have great gas mileage, and be very easy for me to use. In the summer of 2014, I bought a little black commuter car, and took it home.

10514565_673733631064_7698004836956147771_n(1)The adjustment to being a full time driver again wasn’t easy for me at first, and I’ve even had to learn some driving skills for the first time (prior to this car, I had never driven through a roundabout.) At this point, I’ve become much more comfortable with it, and have turned many of the road rules and techniques into a game that I play in my mind.

In case you’re curious, my car is named “Nooblet.”

“Noob” is a popular term right now for “newbie,” as in someone who is new to something. When you add the “let” at the end, it adds an endearing youthfulness to the term “Noob,” kind of like a “piglet.”

 

My own health

As a self-employed person, I didn’t have health insurance for quite a few years. I would simply pay in cash for health services, and that worked fine. With recent changes to healthcare within the United States, I had easier access to insurance coverage, and have been enjoying a plan with naturopathic care, and access to a chiropractor and acupuncturist. Sometimes I speak with clients who are concerned that transitioning to a business will mean that they won’t have health care, but I wouldn’t let that stop you. There are lots of ways to get covered, and to receive all of the care your employer may have once provided. In fact, I’ve found that my new insurance plan covers more alternative care options than many of the employed people I know, and I’m very appreciative of that.

In 2014, I continued to focus on natural self-care, because that’s a passion of mine. Nutrition is also what I was trained in before I started supporting entrepreneurs around money and marketing.

These topics have been of the most interest to me over the past year:

~ Pituitary gland cleansing and overall hormone balancing through the use of herbs and vegetables

~ Strengthening the teeth naturally and nutritionally

~ Jaw relaxation

~ How our emotions relate to physical issues in the body

~ Essential oils

I have never been a runner, but my body began to ask me togiggles with bouquet small take it out for sprints and quick jogs during some of my workdays. For me, it’s not about being on a certain running schedule. I simply sprint when I feel like it, just like a little child would go out and play. Two nights ago, I felt like jogging at 11:30pm in the icy cold weather, so I did.

I’ve also started to sleep without a pillow, as a natural way to keep my spine and jaw in alignment. It makes sense, right? In the wild, we humans wouldn’t be using pillows.

 

 

My favorite inspirational music from 2014

~ David Guetta’s newest album, called “Listen”

~ Dido’s song, “NYC” in her Greatest Hits CD

~ Taylor Swifts song: “I Know Places”

~ London Grammar’s album, “If You Wait”

 

And a few personal things that brought tears to my eyes this year:

~ The sad moment when one of my favorite trees was cut down by the Washington State capitol building.

~ Seeing the Northern lights dance in the sky for the first time (this was a lifelong dream for me) on a flight from the East Coast to Washington State. I realized that I was probably the only one on the plane who was watching the electricity in the sky, while so many other passengers were buried in their electronics.

 

 

Here Are My Intentions and Plans for 2015:

 

I’ll be on a 5-week cleanse, beginning in January of 2015

As an entrepreneur, your health must come first, and I love doing diet adjustments and self-care. The particular cleanse I’m about to start is a sugarless cleanse, designed to balance the body, and flush out heavy metals. It will be full of delicious natural foods and superfoods. I’ve timed it all so that it starts after a Half VIP Day in Seattle with one of my clients (I want to fully enjoy my sushi lunch with her), and then the cleanse is complete right around Valentine’s Day (because I want to have some sweet chocolate that day).

 

Finish the book

Bread Peddler flowers and hot chocolateI can’t quite put a finish date on the book, but my hope is that it will be out and available in mid-2015.  Before it goes to the publisher, the manuscript will go through more structural editing, receive feedback from a few key readers, and then go through several rounds of copy-editing. I’ve seen too many books lately that have spelling errors in them, and I am very committed (both with my time and my money) to having a well-polished book.

 

More speaking, more interviews, more stages

I love to speak, and look forward to being part of more telesummits in 2015, and getting on more stages. Before the book comes out, I will also collaborate with many of my colleagues to bring my training programs to audiences around the world.

 

Traveling in 2015

My passport is about to be renewed (thankfully with a much better photo than the one 10 years ago!), and although I’m not actually sure where I’ll be going next, I am very open to more adventures and plane rides in 2015. The travel schedule mostly depends on speaking opportunities related to the book launch, and I would love to get back to the Hawaiian Islands again.

 

Several new training courses will be available for YOU in 2015

For over a year now, I’ve had ideas for new training courses for entrepreneurs, and they are finally ready! These classes will provide a very accessible way to receive marking guidance outside of individual coaching, and the first set of classes begins on January 21st! I’ll be sharing how I turn total strangers into paying clients in about 10 days, how to promote your BIG projects in 2015, and how to have your first $8,000 month in business.

 

Happy New Year!

Since I started writing my book a year and a half ago, I have been trying to find a title for it. So far, the book has had at least 3 potential titles, which have been discarded along the way. I’ve been dreaming of the next title for a long time, and am pretty sure that I just found it. 

Earlier this week, I was riding a commuter bus from New York City to Richmond, Virginia (here’s a little travel tip – taking the bus between those cities is a shorter journey than taking an airplane or train). I tend to get carsick if I read in moving vehicles, so there was very little that I could do on the 6 hour ride down the coast, aside from snacking, listening to music, and thinking. Right around Washington D.C., I started thinking about more possibilities for the title of the book.  

Then I found the title!

It’s alluring, fits the content of the book, and whenever I say it out loud, it feels elegant and powerful.

 

So, where can you find your next greatest business idea (like a book title, a new service that you can create, or a great idea for bringing more money into your business)? 

In silence.

Staring-at-Wailea-sunset

A couple weeks ago, I was listening to an interview with author Marci Shimoff, where she explained that she had originally received the ideas for her 2 New York Time’s bestselling books, Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul, and Happy for No Reason, while on silent retreats. My own business ideas tend to show up when I have the open space to hear them, and many of you have shared stories about also receiving ideas in this way.

 

Here are a few ways that you can create silence in your own life, and make space for great ideas to come to you.  

1. Go on a  silent retreat. As I envision what my own silent retreat might look like, I see this: Four days spent at a little cabin by a lake, or in the woods. A bathtub is required. I don’t want too many people nearby. I wouldn’t participate in the internet while on the silent retreat, and I would not take phone calls.

2. Turn off your cell phone, and don’t participate in the internet for a period of time (even just a few hours). Airplanes are a great place to do this, and I consistently receive great ideas on flights.

3. Give yourself some “half silence.” When I recently discovered the name for my book, I was listening to music, but doing very little else. If music inspires your creative process, feel free to add it into your silence.

4. Take a break from other people’s opinions. It’s very easy to look for outside permission from other people, and many of us ask others what they think we should do, long before connecting with our own intuition. I encourage you to spend some time simply with your thoughts, so that your own ideas can come to the surface first, before you receive outside input.

5. Go to a cafe alone. Grab a warm drink, open your journal, and let yourself be lulled into relaxation. From this silence, some of your greatest ideas can come forward.

6. Travel alone. While traveling solo, you will still likely meet new people and chat with them, but you will also have plenty of silent space to dream and to think. Even on my recent trip to New York City, I had hours of quiet time at restaurants, while in transit, and at the hotel.

 

Enjoy your silence.
And let me know what shows up for you.

I want to live in a world where people have all that they need.

All of the food

All of the love

All of the income

All of the happiness

All of the opportunities to create money from their skills and passions

 

It’s always been really difficult for me to watch people cut themselves off from this.

~ I’ve watched people skimp on all of the comforts that they would really like to say yes to.

~ Entrepreneurs privately crying because they don’t know how to make more money through their businesses.

~ People abusing the relationships that truly matter, while they are on their way to business success.

~ People thinking that it’s dirty to make more money, and that it will turn them into a monster (when in reality, it will simply magnify who they already are at their core)

~ I see people obsessed over saving a few dollars, and they base their spending choices on what’s cheapest, and not on what they would find joy from.

~ Others exhaust themselves as they let the quest for “more stuff” overtake their ability to experience the wealth that is present every single day. (And believe me, there is a lot of wealth present in your life right now).

It’s time to leave this all behind.

It’s time for you to have:

~ The ability to create money whenever you need it

~ An outlet for your creativity that draws wealth to you

~ The travel opportunities that you’ve been waiting for

~ Trust that the flow of money does not just flow out from you, but to you

~ A comfortable income that you can rely on, without freaking out about your finances at the end of the month

After all, to be able to create money whenever you need it is one of the most precious and nourishing skills that a woman can have.

 

I created 30 Days to Release Your Financial Constriction as a resource for you to cultivate this skill.

How I Manifested $880 In One Hour

Hello!

OK.

On to the story.

Several months ago, I was sitting at my computer,  getting a little resentful and frustrated over an amount of several Moody photo for release Financial constrictionthousand dollars that I had committed to pay that day. 

This payment was for something I deeply desired, but on that day, I was letting myself turn into a victim. I didn’t yet have all of the money available, and I was playing stories in my head about how unfair it was that I had to pay the bill. The amount also felt huge to me, and I was in a really bad mood over it.

As much as I wanted to keep complaining to myself, I also knew that this attitude would get me nowhere.

 

So here’s what I did:

I prepared an electronic payment for as much of the bill as I could cover with the money I had. Before I pressed send, I spent a few minutes writing down all of the good things that my money would bring the person I was paying. I got really detailed, and even thought about all of the other people who would be supported as the money circulated through us and way beyond this one transaction. I then sent that partial payment out with gratitude and happiness.

1 hour later, an $880 sale came in for a group program I was offering at the time!

 

That breezy $880 came right into my life and embraced my good mood, and I immediately used it to cover the rest of the payment that was due that day.

Here are some words of success from clients who have released their financial constriction through my groups and coaching:

“One little Ava-ism completely re-framed a negative belief I had in my business and also gave me a record breaking $2323 day.”

“I now have double bookings on some nights and I already have some clients booking months in advance.”

“Changing your alignment and energy surrounding money can work WONDERS for wealth! I have two semi-unexpected checks in the mail now and I really believe a big reason is because of my new alignment and energy around money! “

And one member of the 30 Days to Release Your Financial Constriction group found something just as good as surprise money….

“The very best thing that has come out of this 30 Days is a wonderful man that came into my life.”
