|Just for fun: Thought I would share with you this shot of the pumpkin-carving extravaganza at my home on Halloween day.
I get so much joy from experiences like this with my kids.
This year, I asked them the question: What scares you?
We worked through each of their fears until we found the funny, the ridiculous & the falseness in each scenario, and we laughed a lot.
Helping my clients dispel their greatest fears is something I do every day.
Looking back at the early years of my own business, I wish I had had a “Fear-Busting-911” emergency hotline to call!! I’m thrilled to announce that my company now offers this service! (For up to six months & for under $1000, you will strengthen your inner confidence & faith … learning to dissolve your own fears … and when you need it most, one-on-one support from my lead coach, who I’ve personally mentored for the past two years.)
Because, when we’re in fear, we’re paralyzed and blinded from truth, possibility & opportunity. This is your lifeline to: the light when you’re in darkness, the abundance when you’re in lack, & to strength when you’re feeling powerless. [Click here to schedule.]
Together, we’re kickin’ butt & takin’ names, and busting through fears that just don’t stand a chance to stop us. Life is good!!
P.S. Will I be seeing you in ORLANDO this Saturday for the final stop of the More Life Tour?? Come spend the day with me for just $57, and invite a friend to join you!

Prevent Financial Disaster by Having a Bottom
I’ve only shared the first step of my formula for bringing in an amount of money that you choose, but I’ve heard that a few of you are starting to see some new clients and extra cash coming in.
You could say that you’re priming the pump. By starting to work the formula, you are likely more open to new clients and also more proactive. Those are two of the ways this formula works.
If you follow the instructions I lay out, there will be much more of that. You will move ahead rapidly.
Before I go forward, since Step One is so crucial, I’m going to spend a moment more on it, then share with you a concept that everyone should embrace, whether they’re employing the formula or not. It’s a concept that can prevent financial ruin.
Last time, I told you to choose an amount of money that would make a significant difference in your life, but that you could actually see yourself receiving.
If you plotted your figure on a graph, it would be the point of intersection between what stretches you and what you believe is possible.
For example, let’s say you’ve made $60,000 before, but never any more than that. You might be able to see yourself bringing in $80,000. If so, that’s the number you pick. If you’ve never made more than $30,000, but you’re having a good year, you might be able to see yourself making $45,000.
Don’t try to aim too high. Starting at the correct number for you is the fastest way, the only way to reach a million dollars or ten million eventually, if that’s what you want.
Remember Linda from last time? She wisely chose $50,000 as her goal and that year ended up making $499,000.
If you choose a figure that you believe is possible, the same thing could happen for you.
Choose Your Bottom
You’ve chosen your goal, your aiming point; now it’s time to choose your bottom.
Everyone has an amount of discomfort or lack of money that they will tolerate in their life. Some people go broke and massively into debt. Others never do because they won’t allow it.
This may sound harsh, but it’s true: if you’re often in dire straits and can’t make ends meet, you’re in that situation because you tolerate being there.
The good news is that you also have more power than you may realize.
If you want to stay out of financial chaos, consciously choose a bottom, the lowest amount of money you will tolerate having in your life, and refuse to go below that amount of money ever.
For instance, if you’re completely broke, your bottom might be $100 in the bank. If you’re better off, your bottom might be $1,000 or $10,000. Whatever figure you choose, refuse to ever go below it.
Having a bottom that you never breach keeps you in a safety zone and prevents you from getting into desperate situations. It’s a very prudent way to run your business. In fact, honoring your bottom can be a mindset shift that will eventually allow you to make millions.
Here’s an example of how a bottom can help:
Jake has a bottom of $5,000 liquid savings. Right now he has $10,000, so he feels secure. But let’s say, he has unexpected expenses and his savings dip to $7,500. He’s getting close to his bottom, so he gets into gear, becomes very proactive about following up, bringing in money, doing whatever he has to do to stay solvent.
If he didn’t have a bottom, he might just continue to eat away at his savings until it was gone and then start drifting into the red.
Having a figure below which you will never go is like wearing a life preserver. You may end up in the water sometime, but you will never drown.
