3 Money Boundaries to Have In Place to Grow Your Business
Guest Post, Shelly Riutta

When you are taking big leaps in expanding your business you will begin to bump up against other people’s money stuff.

You see when you are breaking free of fear and scarcity around money and taking bold actions to grow your business you are really bucking the cultural norm around money right now—which is money victimhood. Meaning many, many people feel disempowered in their life around creating abundance and feel like outside forces are determining this for them. Your bold actions can actually be a trigger for them.

Here is an example of this from my own business. Years ago I was so excited because I was having my first sale of my audio CD’s. It was around my dog, Niyo’s, Birthday and the sale was part of celebrating his Birthday too. I LOVED these CD’s and they have helped so many people and all I could think about was how much this sale was going to help more people. I pushed the send button on the email announcing the sale and I began getting orders.

A few hours later I checked my emails and found a seething email from a massage therapist who was accusing me of just caring about money and this sale was just a horrible thing, etc. I remember reading that email and feeling like I had just got punched in the stomach. How could she interpret something that I was doing that had such good intentions—so negatively?

I learned SO much from that email. The most important thing I learned was how to establish money boundaries—meaning how to not take personally someone else’s money issues. Her reaction had more to do with her and her own relationship with money than about anything that I was doing. Once I established those money boundaries it made it easier to continue to follow my Spirit and take bold actions to be of service on the Planet—and not hold back because of other people’s fears and reactions.

Here are 3 Money Boundaries so you can powerfully grow your business the way your Spirit intended:

1. Make sure to honor the value of the Service at the true level of their Value rather than what you think other people would be comfortable with. As an exercise ask yourself “What is the reason why I priced this service this way”. Is the reason because it is what everyone else is charging? Is it because you feel this is what people would pay and you don’t think you could go higher? Practice pricing your services from a place of Faith rather than fear.

2. View your clients as powerful Spiritual Beings capable of creating whatever level of abundance they desire. If they are having money struggles continue to focus on the truth of what they are truly capable of rather than to buy into what they are creating right now. Do not buy into their view of themselves around money– which is that they are a victim. The more you are viewing them as powerful, you are actually energetically supporting them to step into this much more than buying into the false belief that they are limited. (This is also a great thing to practice with your friends and family too!)

3. Never assume someone can’t afford your services. I have been amazed over the years how my assumptions over the years have been so inaccurate with what people can pay. What I have learned is that people who truly desire your service will move mountains to get the money to pay for your services—if it is important enough to them. Never assume what someone is capable of paying. It is your job to just offer your services and see what happens.

What specific actions are you going to take to begin to establish your Money Boundaries?

Would You Rather Die Than Change?

Change – Adapt – Grow
Resist – Struggle – Die

I was whitewater rafting in West Virginia once and got unexpectedly tossed out of the raft. Even though the water was shallow and I had a life vest on, my first response was to panic and flail about in the tumultuous water, which only served to give me a mouth full of water and keep me stuck in the swirling rapids. In a panic, I thought, "Oh no–I'm going to drown!"

If You're Stuck With Who, Go Back to What — 7 Thoughts on Nicheing from the Inside Out
Ted Hargrave, Guest Blog

Nicheing can be hard. And sometimes people can just feel so stuck in the process.

So here’s my thought of the day: If you’re totally stumped on the WHO go back to the WHAT.

I just had a kick ass conversation with my friend and colleague Rebecca Tracey of The Uncaged Life (the beauty pictured here). Besides introducing me to The Middle Finger Project (swoon!) we also had a really in depth conversation about this whole notion of niching by being more authentic so that your ideal clients can really feel if working with you is a fit, if they resonate with you.

Are You Trying to Fit In?

Does it sometimes feel like you're a square peg trying to fit into a round hole? That hole could be society's standards, your friends' and family's view or expectations of you, the standards of others in your field or niche, or what you think your prospects or clients want from you. But try as you might, you just can't seem to fit (or feel comfortable if you do manage to squeeze yourself into that hole).

If so, I encourage you to stop denying you are a square peg–and start to find a square hole! I promise you, they are out there, and when you start to seek them out, you will fall easily into them and it will finally feel "right" to you.

3 Steps to Determine If You Should Take On a Project
Guest Blogger, Araceli Gonzalez

We’ve all been there–in the dreaded space of project abandonment. I, too, have started a project with enthusiasm and excitement only to give up on it somewhere along the way. Be honest with yourself–how many times in the past year have you started a project and abandoned ship midway (or sooner), even though your intention was to see it through?

Although creating an action plan once you take on a project is imperative to its success, there’s some leg work that needs to take place beforehand to even determine if taking on this project is going to be a wise decision.
