Does Fear Stop You from Starting—or Finishing—Your Creative Pursuits?

How many creative projects are on your “to-do” list?

Maybe they’re not on your immediate to-do list … because, well, you’re busy. But you’d really like to get to them … “someday.”

If you had time. If you had talent. If you weren’t failing.

Does this frame of mind sound familiar?

If you’re attracting money in fear, then you end up attracting fear along with any money you bring in.

And do you know what fear does? It stops us from doing what we’re meant to do: our creative work.

It’s no surprise to you, then, that procrastination and perfectionism are rooted in fear-based emotions.

And these can grip even the best of us.

Which is why I invited Samantha Bennett, author of “Get It Done: From Procrastination to Creative Genius in Just 15 Minutes a Day,” to join me on the Love-Based Money Podcast. She’s sharing how to get past procrastination and perfectionism in just 15 minutes per day. And it works! I’ve experienced it, myself.

Is the LOA working for you?

Have you ever felt like the Law of Attraction just isn’t working for you, and maybe it’s all a bunch of baloney?

I have good news: The Law of Attraction does work—IF you use it correctly. Chances are, if you’re not getting what you want, then you’re not using it correctly. And you’re not alone: when I first encountered it, I didn’t use it right.

Hint: it’s about more than just thinking – or NOT thinking – about something!

On my new Love-Based Business blog, I’m sharing a powerful 2-step process for shifting your mindset—and getting the Law of Attraction to work for you.

A New, Love-Based Approach to the Product Launch

The product launch:

How do those 3-words make you feel?

Does it strike fear into your heart? Increase your stress?

When you think of a product launch, which metrics do you consider? Probably sales, right? Conversions? Dollar signs?

And … there’s that stress again, right?

Let’s view the almighty product launch from a different angle, for a moment.

Aside from money, there are many benefits to doing a product launch when you’re a spiritual, conscious entrepreneur.

And when you view the product launch through a love-based lens, you’re far less likely to feel stressed and far more likely to take the pressure off and actually enjoy your launch.

And, as an awesome side benefit, you’ll still grow your business in a love-based way!

The Real Reason You’re Not Attracting Abundance

Have you ever wondered why, despite your best efforts, you’re not earning more money?

The truth is simple, although the underlying explanation can feel a bit complicated.

You’re dealing with some deeply-held beliefs that stop you from earning more.

But why? And how do you get past those beliefs and open the flow of abundance?

The good news is that my friend Kendall SummerHawk, the Leader in Certified Coach Training for Women Entrepreneurs, specializes in helping spiritual entrepreneurs discover what’s holding them back from earning more, so they can then break through it and increase abundance in their lives and businesses.

The great news? I interviewed her for the latest episode of the Love-Based Money Podcast! You can listen in, here:

Can You Really Have It All?

It’s an ongoing debate.

As a conscious entrepreneur, is it possible to have a thriving business while taking the best possible care of yourself and your family?

Can you be a smart, savvy, successful businessperson who also enjoys great, fulfilling, relationships, and who feels at peace most of the time?

My friend Christine Arylo says you absolutely can.

It’s her belief that by bringing in ancient feminine, earth-based and yogic wisdom traditions, you can create a reality—in your business, home, and family—that allows you to thrive without sacrificing personal health and happiness.

She’s doing it right now, and she’s helped thousands of other people do it, too.

On the Love-Based Money podcast, Christine shares some of her hard-earned wisdom for incorporating spirituality into life to achieve ultimate success: that which allows you to feel peace, happiness, and harmony, no matter what’s in your bank account.

Staying Grounded While Seeking Personal Growth

If you’re reading this, chances are you know I’ve been on a spiritual and personal development journey for a while.

When I first started out, I thought all the spiritual development stuff was kind of “woo woo.”

Can you blame me? I came from the Midwest, and my dad is a scientist.

But as I traversed the personal development landscape, I came to realize that when I found a balance between the practical and the spiritual, I saw concrete results in my business … while helping my clients and remaining centered.

My friend Pamela Bruner is a Success Coach, Author, and EFT Expert, and she specializes in helping entrepreneurs sell the intangible (successfully!) while implementing practical marketing strategies that work.

I interviewed her on the Love-Based Money Podcast, and she shared some of her best tips for striking the right balance between spiritual and practical.

Does Being a “Spiritual” Entrepreneur Mean You Shouldn’t Make Big Money?

If you’re anything like so many of the spiritual entrepreneurs with whom I’ve spoken, you may feel like making good money is almost counter to what you do.

After all, it’s more important that you make a big impact, right?

Money’s not important to you.

Well …

My friend Kendra Thornbury, spiritual entrepreneur and wealth coach, takes a different approach. She stands fiercely in her desire to make a great living while making a huge impact.

In fact, she says you can’t make your greatest impact if you’re not making a great income.

(What? I know.)

I’d love for you to learn more about her thoughts on this topic by listening to my interview with her on the Love-Based Money Podcast.

Is All This Manifestation Stuff Making You Impatient?

Let’s be honest here: when you’re striving to manifest what you want, the results can come slowly.

But they don’t have to.

When you know how to align your business with your spirit and values, the manifestation process becomes more efficient.

My friend Eva Gregory is a Law of Attraction expert, and she said that there’s one thing that can stop money from flowing in any business … and that it’s even more significant in a business run by a spiritual entrepreneur.

The good news is that she also has some tips for growing your energy to attract abundance and prosperity into your business in a way that aligns with your spirit and values.

On the Love-Based Money Podcast, Eva shares those tips so you can gain the alignment necessary to help, serve, and make great money!

How to Ditch That Mean Inner Voice and Listen to Your Inner Wisdom

We’ve all experienced it: you’re clicking along, getting excited about a new project or event, and then it hits. A nasty little voice pipes up, telling you all sorts of mean things.

“You’re not smart enough to make this as awesome as you think it’s going to be.”

“This will never work.”

“You’re not good enough.”

“You’ll fail.”

Then, consciously or unconsciously, you put the brakes on. You allow this inner saboteur to mess with your big dreams, your big plans, and your big visions.

It’s time to put a stop to this madness!

My friend Amy Ahlers is a life coach and co-founder of the Inner Mean Girl Reform School, and she specializes in helping people just like you to connect with their inner wisdom and follow it straight to a life they love.

On the podcast, she talks about how to get your inner Mean Girl (or Guy) out of the driver’s seat of your life so you can listen to and follow your inner wisdom.

Why Isn’t the Law of Attraction Working for You?

I’m going to give it to you straight:

The Law of Attraction is always working.

But I know … sometimes it doesn’t feel like it, right?

When I first learned about (and started trying to use) the Law of Attraction, it didn’t go well for me. I can’t tell you how many times I thought, “This Law of Attraction stuff is nonsense,” or “It works for some people, but not for me.”

Sound familiar?

Here’s the thing: even when you feel like you’re “doing everything right,” the Law of Attraction can be a sneaky devil.

But there is good news in all this!

My friend Jeanna Gabellini is a Law of Attraction expert, and her teachings can help you discover what you may be doing to stop the Law of Attraction from working FOR you.

She’s the one who opened my eyes to the fact that I was actually repelling what I wanted rather than attracting it.

And now, on the Love-Based Money Podcast, she’s explaining how you can use the Law of Attraction intentionally to finally start manifesting more of what you want. Check it out here:

Get Rid of Fear-Based Emotions for GOOD!

If you’ve tried money-attraction exercises and they haven’t worked for you, chances are old fear-based emotions are blocking you from getting the results you want.

In other words, if you still feel anger, anxiety, resentment, or any other negative emotion when it comes to money, you’ll never feel good about it, no matter how much you make or bring in.

The good news is that when you have the right tools, it’s possible to shake fear-based emotions and mindset patterns.

My friend Kate Beeders is a Mindset, Money, and Marketing Expert, and she’s passionate about helping people like you overcome fear-based emotions for good so they can begin feeling at peace with money—and attracting more of it!

On the podcast, she talks about how the right mindset, or inner game, leads to tangible, real-life results.

Does Reverse Engineering Always Work?

Different things work differently for different people.

That’s kind of obvious, right? Some people are visual learners, and some people are audio learners. Some people love Sleep Number mattresses and others can sleep only on a pillow-top.

So why should things be any different when it comes to manifesting the things we desire?

If the Law of Attraction isn’t working as well as you expected it to, despite your best efforts, then maybe you need to try something different. Maybe you need a fresh perspective.

My friend Cory Michelle Johnson, Motivational Speaker and Personal Life Coach, has a unique perspective on the Universal Law, Ask and You Shall Receive, and it’s a perspective that may help you transform your results.

On the Love-Based Money Podcast, Cory Michelle speaks about why reverse engineering—a common theme in manifestation—doesn’t always work, and an alternate method for getting what you desire. Check it out here:

Is It Time to Reevaluate Your Relationship with Money?

When you think about money, how do you feel?

Do you feel calm, serene, and happy? Taken care of?

Or do you feel anxious, like you’re afraid you’re going to run out? Do you feel angry or resentful about the fact that you don’t have as much as you’d like?

Believe it or not, the emotions that come up when you think about money shine a huge light on your ability (or lack thereof) to receive it.

There are several physical indicators that something’s not right, too.

The good news: you DO have the ability to transform your relationship with money, so that you can receive more of it.

My friend Morgana Rae, World’s Leading Relationship with Money Coach and self-proclaimed Law of Attraction dropout, used her teachings to help me turn my own relationship with money around.

On the Love-Based Money Podcast, Morgana speaks about her unique process for transforming YOUR relationship with money. This process is different from anything you may have seen thus far, and it’s FUN! Check it out:

Why Don’t These Healing Modalities Work for Me?

If you’ve been studying spiritual or personal development for any amount of time, you probably know that “blocks” can stop us from reaching our goals.

And you probably know that in order to get past these blocks, we must heal whatever pain or trauma has caused them.

And you’ve tried! Maybe you’ve meditated, practiced tapping, or gone to counseling.

But you still feel stuck! Meanwhile, you see other people overcoming their blocks like it’s no big deal.

The good news is that there is a way to discover exactly why you’re not getting past your blocks, and to then heal those wounds and begin moving forward.

My friend Jeffrey Van Dyk, mentor, speaker, and creator of the Tribal Marketing Training, specializes in doing just that, and he’s sharing his tips on the Love-Based Money Podcast.

He explains why certain healing modalities seem to work better for some people than for others, and how to identify what’s really holding you back.

Is It Possible to Make Money with Greater Ease and Flow?

If you’re anything like I was just a few years ago, you believe in the power of manifesting what you want. Even though it seems a little like magic, you can get behind it. You’ve seen miracles happen!

Only, it doesn’t actually always work in your life.

What if there was one simple shift that could enable you to manifest everything—including money and abundance—with greater ease and flow?

There is!

On the Love-Based Money Podcast, my friend Emerald Peaceful GreenForest—the person to introduce me to the idea that manifesting money IS actually possible, and founder of The Empowered Messenger—is sharing it.

So get ready to discover the truth about manifesting, magic, and miracles, because I have a feeling it’s going to supercharge your efforts, starting right away.
