From yesterday: People from my country don’t tend to be rich and make a lot of money BULLSHIT!

This is absolutely not true because tons of people make tons of money. People have crazy salaries for basically just showing up at work without ever really adding anything of value. An just because there’s a culture of not speaking of money and how much you make or have doesn’t mean that people don’t make crazy big money. All that “don’t talk about money or you’ll offend someone” talk is just bullshit.

Because when you don’t talk about salaries the young generation has no idea what even a decent salary looks like! Plus I think the only people who are offended by money talk are people who are ashamed of not having any.

Open and honest conversations about money and salaries are in everyone’s best interest. Because simply ignoring money doesn’t mean everyone’s broke. It just means that what’s done with that money, who has it and where it’s spent goes into hiding and behind closed doors where we can’t ensure that the power of that money is wielded lawfully and well.

Holy hell, how did you culture have so much influence on my money mindset?! And all this stuff that I’ve absorbed from how adults spoke about money, jobs and salaries. How different it must be for someone who comes from wealth and privilege, how differently they must have seen and related to money.

And who did these adults – who so refused to talk about money while at the same time insisted that choosing a career is a critical thing – think they were benefitting by not speaking of money. I mean what if someone wants to use median salaries as a factor when choosing what industry or career they want to work in? And what about when I was in vocational school, and all the ever had to say was “this job will never pay the bills” yet never did they have real discourse with us about what the alternatives could be, how you could make a living out of doing many different jobs. All they did was further impose that starving artist thinking on us, which is ridiculous. Because how can you run an educational program and then tell your students you can’t make money doing this? You’re bloody well making a salary doing this!

Redefine how you value yourself.

As a creative, it’s easy to make the mistake of equating your worth as a person to the success of your work.

It doesn’t help that you probably weren’t taught how to handle money and see value in a productive manner.

When you want to do the deep inner work to increase your earning potential and break through your income plateau, take The Money Mindset Workshop.

It’s a course with real talk about money, that includes exercises and journaling prompts to help you completely transform how you think and feel, not just about money, but how you measure your own worth.

I designed it for when you’re ready to fully step into your economic power and create a life that’s in alignment with your personal values and aspirations.
