Is The American Dream Dead?

Personal Note


Wonder is a powerful word. It’s about possibility, dreaming, inspiration. When I started coaching 8 years ago I wondered where this career choice would take me. It has been quite a learning process going from counseling/healing to a business focus.

I was coaching for about a year when I had an “aha” I shared with my husband. “Dave, I didn’t realize it until now, but I’m in sales.” He laughed and said, “I wondered when you were going to figure that out.” It took time, but I’ve actually come to enjoy my “joy” calls as I like to name the time I spend talking with people who might need my services.

I love coaching because I love people. I love helping others reach their goals and stay true to their dreams and I receive so much more than money in the process. Yesterday I had lunch with a financial advisor who freely shared how to take care of an investment, a local business owner who dedicates time to helping troubled teens and a writer who’s intuitively gifted.

Since I like to have Fun throughout each day I play the “I Wonder Game.” It goes like this: Ask the question: I wonder (for example) I wonder _______what money will show up unexpectedly today, what I might learn and from whom, what laughs will occur, what fun things will happen today. Yes, having a sense of WONDER is a powerful way to move through each day!!

Is The American Dream Dead?

No. But it does need mouth-to-mouth assistance. “Resuscitate the American Dream with hope, change and personal responsibility,” says Suze Orman in her newest book, The Money Class. The American Dream our parents embraced was one of living BELOW their means. This is a lesson we lost track of in the obsession for MORE that advertisers promoted and we indebted ourselves to (in oh so many Visa and MasterCard ways).

We need to not only rescue the American Dream as Suze says, but resuscitate it with the old virtues of hard work and sacrifice. Boring, and so not as exciting as the Kardashian or Jersey Shores lifestyles, but realistic.

Suze says, and I agree, that we must move beyond materialism – an empty value if there ever was one – to authentic happiness. Read more...

Warrior Bootcamp for Business June 15th & 16th 2012

I’m really excited that Deborah Price, my Mentor & Coach & the founder of The Money Coaching Institute will be coming to Modesto to teach the 2 Day Warrior Bootcamp for Business.

Warrior Bootcamp for Business is an inspiring, practical and highly impactful workshop designed for business owners of all types.

Unfortunately, most people are not taught how to be successful in business, personally or financially. As a result, many business owners and entrepreneurs often struggle unnecessarily because they haven't learned to engage their inner "Warrior," the money type that holds the key to your financial success.

In Warrior Bootcamp, we will help you to gain access to the part of yourself that is strong, powerful, focused and capable beyond your current knowing.

Warrior Bootcamp for Business is quite different from a "traditional" business planning process as it is divided into three core components:

1. Money Coaching - Includes processes for Identifying Your Business Blocks and Obstacles to Success, Evaluate Your Leadership Quadrants and Influencing Archetypes.

2. Business Coaching - Will help you Develop Your Unique Position & Market, Build a Realistic Revenue Model, and Daily Right Action Plan & Strategies for Business.

3. Marketing - Focuses on Creating Effective Passive and Active Marketing Strategies and helps you build Your Marketing Model

Investment: Regularly $795 but for Central Valley Business Owners $595.
