Have you ever wondered why your finances have huge up and down swings, great success and then crash?
Or why there is always only enough to pay your bills with nothing left over?
Or have you started to get ahead and someone (important) says “don’t get too big for your britches” and it all falls apart?
Or you know that you have to work really hard to be successful, and you are working really hard but the financial rewards just aren’t coming?
I’ve had some major money ups and downs in my life, periods of time when the money just flowed into my life and other times where scarcity ruled.
There was a time in 2009 when all my model home subdivisions were closing down, I had no more contacts in the pipeline, there weren’t any possible model jobs to chase down and it looked like my business and finances were going to crash.
My reaction was, “I am NOT going to go down with this recession, it is just not happening … I am going to do something!”
I began to recognize this pattern of money highs and lows in my life and business, and I didn’t like it. I started reading about money, found some gurus, learned about all the strange beliefs and attitudes surrounding money in old stories and new media.
One of my first startling discoveries was a Louise Hay quote, “You have as much money as you think you need.”
Really? You mean I am a willing partner in my money story?
Yep… you are (just like I was) … probably subconsciously, but a partner no less.
You see, your family money history replays its self in your life with out you even realizing it. And it is not just your immediate family who has influenced you, this pattern can go back generations.

Now, just because you have an old family money story that’s running your life and business right now, doesn’t mean that you are stuck with it forever. In fact, you are only stuck with it if you try to ignore it. When you have uncovered the hidden the money messages that influence your life, you start to understand exactly where you can get in trouble with money.
Then you can be prepared to counteract that old belief based behavior with a new positive action that leads you to the happy, abundant financial life you’ve been waiting for and dreaming of.
Sound simple? It actually is…
This is how I came through 2009 without losing anything other than my home builder clients and I created a cool new company, Design Biz Blueprint, that allowed me to share what I learned about money and abundance with you.
How did you change the money part of your business and life?
