Excerpt from Lynn’s eCourse: Prosperity, Power & Peace

Over a hundred years ago the first and most famous psychiatrist, Sigmund Freud, asked the question: “What do women want?” Men, of course, are still perplexed by that question. No surprise. We women are complicated. That’s ok.  

But women, WE don’t want to be perplexed by our money! That’s expensive ignorance. To be financially savvy, there are certain things you must know about YOUR money.

3 Excuses Women in Business Use to Stay Broke!

3 Excuses Women in Business Use to Stay Broke!

Women in Business: What are your money excuses?  There are reasons why you don't have the money you'd really like to have. One thing to ask yourself: Do you treat money with the respect it deserves?

Perhaps you ignore your money (or should I say the balance in your checking account) except when you need to buy that pair of shoes on sale. Or, you live from pay check to pay check, hoping you’ll make it to the end of the month, but never quite sure. Anxiety provoking? Yes.

On one side of the money coin are those that aren't making enough money and struggle. But, I hear from women all the time on the other side of the NO Respect coin. They make plenty of money, but don’t know where it goes or feel out of control because they're not managing it well.

First Excuse: Not saving enough.

Is Your Money Creating the JOY You Want? If not, Here’s How!

Is Your Money Creating the JOY You Want? If not, Here’s How!

Is the money you have bringing you the JOY you want? If not, use one principle from Marie Kondo’s book “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying UP” to spark greater JOY with your Money!

Marie Kondo’s book inspired me to go through my closets, touch everything and decide whether it brought JOY to my life or not. Shoes, purses, gym clothes that didn’t spark JOY are now gone, gone, gone. Ah…

As a Certified Money Coach for women in business I see a lot of women who are less than JOYful about their relationship with money. Why?

I started wondering how Kondo’s simply philosophy could be applied to the money in our lives. Let’s take Kondo’s 2nd principle “Respect Your Belongings” and alter it slightly to “Respect Your Money.”

“Respect Your Money”:  When we show respect to others, we treat them well and expect them to do the same for us, right?

But, how are we NOT respecting the money we have?

3 Excuses Women In Business Use to Stay In Financial Struggle & What to Do About It!!

Women in Business: What are your money excuses? There are reasons why you don't have the money you'd really like to have. One question to ask yourself: Are you treating your money with the respect and care it deserves or like a worn out old shoe stuck in the back of your closet?

Is one of your excuses that you live from pay-check to pay check, hoping, praying you’ll make it to the end of the month, but never quite sure? Anxiety provoking? Yes. On one side of the money coin are those that aren't making enough money and struggle.

But, I hear from women all the time on the other side of the NO Respect coin who make plenty of money, but don’t know where it goes or feel out of control because they're not managing it well.

Here’s something I was really good at: ignoring all responsible things (like balancing my checkbook) related to money. My excuse? It’s too overwhelming to pay attention to my money so I won’t think about it!

Women in Business: The 2nd Biggest Money Mistake Women Make!

Women in Business: The 2nd Biggest Money Mistake Women Make!

The 2nd biggest money mistake women make is over giving to others before taking care of themselves. 

Let’s talk:  How many times have you given money to your adult children, boyfriends, partners, parents, people in need rather than saving more for your own needs - vacation anyone? …or for your future?

We women are “nice” and caring and that’s a good thing, but not at the expense of our own financial well-being. Lois Frankel, author of Good Girls Don’t Get Rich, says she spent "the first half her adult life believing that doing good and doing well were mutually exclusive."

Most women aren’t this extreme, but I’ve worked with more than one woman who has given large amounts of money from their life savings to men they met online. One woman nearly bankrupted herself.

Can you relate to these financial situations?

  • A friend calls and says, “I’m out of money for the month. Could you loan me $100.00 to get me through?”
  • Sam, your 22 year-old son wants to move back in rent-free.
  • Jodie your 28 year old daughter, asks you for money frequently and is struggling to pay her bills, but buys designer shoes and purses. (And, you feel a little resentful, but override it.)

What do you do to break the over-giving cycle?
