One of the things Lisa loves doing most is helping people who want to create an enormous impact in the world. She gets to talk to hundreds of (aspiring) entrepreneurs in her coaching business. She says “They all have the most amazing dreams, dedicated missions, and creative visions. But there is always that subject that will immediately change the energy in the room: MONEY. It’s like a big elephant has just entered the room, suffocating all inspiration.” As a Money & Impact coach, she’s experienced this with almost all of her clients. At first, when Lisa asks them about their inspiring plans and visions, without thinking of the money, everything is possible! But the moment money is being mentioned there is a radical shift to seeing limits, being paralyzed by fear and coming up with excuses not to work on the thing they want to do most. Lisa can relate to the fear this instills in people because she recognizes this from back when she was just starting out as an entrepreneur.
“I didn’t even realize it, but money was keeping me small at the time. Now I am on a mission to make entrepreneurs see that money has a power over us. One that makes us doubt what we are capable of. It puts out the fire of passion and impact and I think that is such a waste!” So changing your money mindset – the way you think, feel and behave when it comes to money – is one of the most important things for entrepreneurs to do, according to Lisa. She is a firm believer we all have something to do here on earth to change the world for the better. To do this we need to step into the greatest version of ourselves. Most people won’t do this – because of money! How is it possible that something that is really just paper has such a power over whether or not we go after our dreams?”

In the following issues of Ownit Magazine, Lisa will share some of the things she learned over the years from her work as an impact and income coach. This way, we hope to inspire you to reevaluate your relationship with money so you can go out and do what you’ve always dreamed of! A few tips here to start.
Tip 1: Be aware of your Money Mindset. Observe your thoughts, emotions, and behavior around money. Notice unhelpful patterns and look for triggers for this behavior.
Tip 2: Shift from a Scarcity to an Abundance Mindset. The number 1 technique to do this is to practice gratitude daily. An abundance mindset helps you see opportunities and radiates positive energy to attract the right people to your business.
Tip 3: Create a Money Map. Money is a tool to create experiences, grow and contribute during your life and through your business. Determining WHY you want money is an inspiring motivator to actually taking the steps to obtain it.
Tip 4: Set clear, realistic and aspirational Money Goals. Make sure that you set them for the short-, mid- and long-term. Set up a dashboard to help keep you focused on how far you’ve come in reaching your goal. Translate Money Goals in your business to the number of people’s lives you are impacting – that’s very motivating!
