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.
