#59 Nicolene Elhadad– What’s Your Money Story?

She is a mum of 3 children and the owner of 7 different businesses.Nicolene strives to live her best life, full of energy and passion, doing everything she loves. Known as the Franchise Queen, Nicolene believes in expanding your business and wealth, through multiplying what you already have and doing it in a simplified and fun way.Key TakeawaysMoney doesn't have any power above us. It's the power that we give to money.It's vital to have the awareness, right understanding and right relationship with money at the youngest age possible.Supporting children to know the possibilities and that they can have what they want but only if they respect money (how they earn and grow it) and work smartly.As entrepreneurs we have the ability to make choices and decisions. And that’s where we truly become empowered. When we start to live our life, on purpose and towards our purpose.You don’t have to be the next McDonald's or the next Starbucks. But you can be a brand that creates that safety, that formula, that business in a box model that actually suits loads of other people out there.Having confidence with money starts with having confidence with yourself. So much self confidence is required, in order to have more money, to attract more money, to feel confident to invest and spend that money.When you are struggling, having a challenge or a big issue, look at it in perspective where you enjoy, appreciate, and learn from what’s at hand. Know that you are not going to be there again, everything is growing and evolving.

#58 What Is Limiting Your Potential?

#58 What Is Limiting Your Potential?
In this week’s episode of the podcast, I share details of a powerful reminder of how our own internal conversations, can be holding us back from achieving the results we want to see in our business.An equation was shared with me several months ago, and that is, P = P – I. P is for Performance, and your performance equals your Potential minus Interferences. Performance is the overall performance of your business, with the second P being the ultimate potential of that business, in terms of the revenue it's making, the impact it's having, and then the I is the interferences, those external or sometimes internal interferences that is preventing your business from ultimately achieving the best performance that it can. Key TakeawaysOur relationship with money, the internal conversation that we are having with ourselves about money is all impacted by our sense of self worth, and self value.It’s important in businesses to be visible. To be the front and center of minds when it comes to potential clients, seeing what we do, understanding the results that we can bring, and recognising that we are the company to help them achieve those results.It’s is important to be able to recognise interferences, even before they actually become an interference. There needs to be a mechanism in place where we should pause, review what’s going on, not only in our business directly, but also in our niche and industry as well.By understanding the gaps and what you can do to alleviate those gaps gives you the best chance to take that intentional action and stay ahead in your business and industry.Ask yourself these questions: What are those interferences that you know are currently holding you back in your business? What is stopping you and your business from achieving its full of potential? And what are you going to do about them? Connect with MeFREE Resources www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/My website www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/Join my Facebook Group www.facebook.com/groups/moneyconfidencecommunityFollow me on Instagram www.instagram.com/lesleythomascoaching/Connect with me on LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/lesley-thomas Hosted on Acast.

#57 Heather Angell – What’s Your Money Story?
My guest this week is Heather Angell, a successful business owner and mum of two young children. Heather has true empathy for people that are feeling completely overwhelmed, unfulfilled & stuck in a life that they know could be so much bigger, bolder and brighter.Since leaving the corporate rat race in 2015 Heather has been helping highly ambitious business owners around the world reclaim their time, energy and sense of purpose through private mentoring, consulting, speaking events & online programs.Heather's unique approach empowers people to leave self-doubt, fear and uncertainty behind and grow a joyful, fulfilling, profitable and sustainable business on their terms.Key TakeawaysSometimes it’s the protectionism approach that has the biggest part in what harms us in our relationship with our own self worth, self value, how we grow our own revenue with our businesses.Your self worth and how your confidence around money are absolutely linked. However, your self worth should have nothing to do with the figure that's in your bank account, you are worthy, regardless of what the number is.It’s important to define what success means to yourself. And also give yourself permission that the definition of success evolves.It’s important to celebrate your own success as well as other people’s success. By celebrating others you are shown that something is possible, what you need to do is to learn to mute that voice in your head, that tries to take away from that person’s success. Find all motivation in yourself to able to recreate what others have done and shift your mindset and tell yourself, ‘If they’ve done it, I can do it.”Money blocks is a terminology that has developed over the years, giving people the excuse not to look internally at why are they undervaluing themselves. There's nothing blocking you other than yourself, and other than your belief in your ability to do or go after something.Connect with Heather AngellInstagram www.instagram.com/heatherangellconsultancy/LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/heatherangellcoaching/ Website www.heatherangell.co.uk Connect with MeFREE Resources www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/My website www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/Join my Facebook Group www.facebook.com/groups/moneyconfidencecommunityFollow me on Instagram www.instagram.com/lesleythomascoaching/Connect with me on LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/lesley-thomas Hosted on Acast.

#56 The Importance Of Knowing Your Money Personality
Nov 1 2022
#56 The Importance Of Knowing Your Money Personality
The best way to empower your relationship with money, and create a Money Mindset that supports you, is to really, really know your Money Personality, and this means understanding your Money Archetypes. In this episode I explore each of the Money Archetypes and provide useful reframes for the main elements of each Archetype. There are 8 Money Archetypes in total, and our relationship with money is governed by 3 of them. This relationship will be a blend of the three, so not all traits of each Money Archetype will show up for us, but it's important to know and understand, which ones are supporting us and which are not.Key TakeawaysThe Nurturer archetype is your inner sponsor. You'll be likely to appreciate money, yet you feel the need to over give. Every penny that you bring in, you will have a natural generosity. And this includes wanting to protect shelter, or nurture others financially.The Alchemist archetype is your inner idealist. The alchemist are attracted to unconventional or different ways of making money. The Accumulator is an archetype very much around saving money. There will never be a rainy enough day for accumulators to feel more comfortable spending money than saving money, because accumulators love to save. The Connector is really good and evil of helping others to create long term relationships that can generate income. They're very happy when somebody else is making decisions, though, particularly financial decisions for them. The Celebrity archetype is a very charismatic archetype, people are drawn to them because of that charisma. However, celebrity archetypes can have a tendency to value money as a tool to achieve the status, the image and the recognition that is so important to them.The Ruler archetype have a strong desire to achieve, and a strong desire to build a successful business. As a ruler, you never feel satisfied and you're continually challenging yourself to achieve higher financial goals.The Romantic archetype is described as your inner headedness. And this is because romantics tend to feel gratification and pleasure around value simply because they feel like it, they're worth it. They dislike feeling a slave to money. Instead, they like to use it to enjoy other good things. They believe that money is there to be enjoyed. The Maverick archetype is your rebel without a cause. And a Maverick is attracted no surprises to get rich opportunities, they are willing to take a financial risk in exchange for potentially a big win.Understanding your relationship with money, and understanding your money archetypes that are driving that relationship does empower you. It puts you in the driving seat of the decisions that you make regarding money going forward, and allows you to understand the impact and the reasoning behind why you have made decisions.Connect with MeFREE Money Archetype Quiz www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/sma-assessment/FREE Resources www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/My website www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/Join my Facebook Group www.facebook.com/groups/moneyconfidencecommunityFollow me on Instagram www.instagram.com/lesleythomascoaching/Connect with me on LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/lesley-thomas Hosted on Acast.

#55 Misty Lynch – What’s Your Money Story?
My guest for this episode is Misty Lynch, US based owner and CEO of Sound View Financial Advisors, LLC. She is passionate in her commitment to help her clients handle their finances and lives with confidence. Misty hosts the unscripted reality show HEARTBROKE and the Demystifying Money podcast. She is also the author of DEMYSTIFYING MONEY and a personal finance expert and resource for media outlets including The New York Times, Cosmopolitan and CNN. She was also one of the Top 100 Financial Advisors in the US in 2021 and US News and World Report called her one of the 9 Women in Finance to follow’ because sometimes you need life advice, not just financial advice’.Key TakeawaysHaving gone through her money experience growing up, Misty realised that money doesn’t cause all of the problems or solve all the problems in the world. But I still believe it solves a lot of them.Learning how to manage money, learning how to use it, not be afraid of it nor ignore it can be incredibly powerful.Reevaluating and learning how to adapt your business is vital. In order to stay in business, continuous learning and evolving is key. Keep things simple when it comes to money and kids. Do not underestimate the influence you have right now to impact the lives of your children. Just a few small lessons can make a huge difference, but the habits they form will be key for really empowering their financial future.Seek the art of possible. Seek the evidence of others who have done it, and know that it is out there for you, If you choose it. If the evidence is there don’t dismiss it, go and be curious.Always be mindful of your own mindset around money, your own mindset around growth, and development, and what you truly believe. When you do that, you have the greatest opportunity for success.Figure out how to measure your own success, don’t measure it up against someone else’s. It has to correspond with your way. Because if it doesn't meet what you want, and correspond with your way, then it's going to be out of alignment, you're not going to have that real, emotional connection to your goal.Connect with Misty LynchWebsite mistylynch.comLinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/mistylynchFacebook www.facebook.com/mistylynchcfp/Twitter www.twitter.com/mistylynchcfp/Instagram www.instagram.com/mistylynchcfp/Connect with MeFREE Resources www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/My website www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/Join my Facebook Group www.facebook.com/groups/moneyconfidencecommunityFollow me on Instagram www.instagram.com/lesleythomascoaching/Connect with me on LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/lesley-thomas Hosted on Acast.

Because if it doesn't meet what you want, and correspond with your way, then it's going to be out of alignment, you're not going to have that real, emotional connection to your goal.Connect with Misty LynchWebsite mistylynch.comLinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/mistylynchFacebook www.facebook.com/mistylynchcfp/Twitter www.twitter.com/mistylynchcfp/Instagram www.instagram.com/mistylynchcfp/Connect with MeFREE Resources www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/My website www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/Join my Facebook Group www.facebook.com/groups/moneyconfidencecommunityFollow me on Instagram www.instagram.com/lesleythomascoaching/Connect with me on LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/lesley-thomas Hosted on Acast.

#54 Be Brave And Challenge Your Thinking
In this episode, I explore what could happen if you were braver and challenged your own thinking, in terms of what could be possible for you and by when. Setting a 5 year vision for your business is important, but what is stopping you from achieving in 3 months, what you are stating will be done in 5 years….Are there real factors that prevent you achieving that outcome sooner, or are you simply kicking the can down the road, because of limiting beliefs, around what you are capable of achieving much sooner?Key TakeawaysIn setting our goals, it’s important to set it to short term goals, medium term goals and longer term goals. Then we start off from the perspective of what is our longer term goal, and reverse engineer all our other goals based on that longer term goal.In setting longer term goals ask yourself; Am I really committed to achieving that goal? Am I really committed to taking all the steps, the intentional action that I need to take in order to achieve that goal?When we really lean in to the art of the possible and go and seek the evidence, then that is where we start to realise that our limiting beliefs hold us back. Because if we go and look for who has achieved what it is we want to achieve, then under most circumstances, we will always find somebody who has achieved the very thing that we want to achieve. And very often, in a much shorter timeframe than we have believed is possible for us.We make decisions all the time. When we make no decision, we are actually making a limiting decision, a decision to do nothing. And that in itself is a decision.Writing down your goals is the easiest and best way to connect with them. It is setting out that intention to do and achieve what you've committed to paper. And by then you can start breaking it down into those milestones, into those action steps you need to take in order to achieve that goal.Our limiting beliefs are like our relationship with money. It's never ever going to be one and done. But if we keep pushing through and creating the facts and the evidence that we can do what we set out to do, there'll be learning along the way. Take each lesson as one step closer to progress, one step closer to getting what we want. Consider a goal that you think is out of reach at the moment is something that you will look to achieve in five years time. What if you could achieve it in 90 days? What would you need to do? How would you do it? Who do you need to become and then work through that and start that with one small step one small step of intentional action.Connect with MeFREE Resources www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/My website www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/Join my Facebook Group www.facebook.com/groups/moneyconfidencecommunityFollow me on Instagram www.instagram.com/lesleythomascoaching/Connect with me on LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/lesley-thomas Hosted on Acast.

#53 Michaela Wain – What’s Your Money Story?
On this week’s episode of the ‘Let’s Talk Money and more’ podcast, I have another great guest for listeners. The name Michaela Wain, will be familiar to many listeners, as she was a finalist on the BBC1 programme The Apprentice. Michaela is also a hugely successful entrepreneur, as MD of Design and Build UK, Director of Vantage Utility Connections, Director of Property Ninjas and the proud Founder of the Women in Construction Awards.During our conversation together, Michaela and I we delve into her money story to understand what’s brought her to where she is today, her philosophy, goal setting strategies and a whole lot more. Enjoy tuning in.Key TakeawaysAs a woman, be in a position of complete understanding of your own value. It’s up to you to support that value and respect yourself enough to say “this is my worth.”Every job that you do every single minute of your life, however you're choosing to live, it is worth something.In influencing younger female generations, it’s important for them to hear the story and see positive and inspirational stories where women have gone into trades. Work with them to get to the end goal and show them how to get there instead of just forcing them into university, into debt, and into just an unknown world.Show the art of the possible. See the evidence that other people have been able to do things that they did not think was available to them.Motivate and encourage that you can ask for more, you can expect more, and you can go for more.Set realistic goals. And when you reach that goal, set the bar a little bit higher. Always break it down, assess and reflect. Remember to put a structure to it to keep you on track.Things develop over time, you don't have to go out and be a genius and reinvent something. So look for that evidence. It's really important that everybody has a role model from whatever background they're from so they can aspire to be something better. And it's key to being able to actually see other women out there doing the same things that you want to achieve. We can only be what we can see, visualise your goals.Connect with Michaela WainLinkedin www.linkedin.com/in/marketing-michaela-wain-8860284a/ Twitter twitter.com/michaelawain1Instagram www.instagram.com/michaelawain1/Connect with MeFREE Resources www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/My website www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/Join my Facebook Group www.facebook.com/groups/moneyconfidencecommunityFollow me on Instagram www.instagram.com/lesleythomascoaching/Connect with me on LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/lesley-thomas Hosted on Acast.

#52 Is Your Net Worth A By-Product Of Your Self Worth?

#52 Is Your Net Worth A By-Product Of Your Self Worth?
In this episode, I explore the connection between our net worth and our self worth and how developing our self confidence is the key to creating the right relationship with money.Key TakeawaysConfident relationship with money begins with a confident relationship with yourself. Your relationship with money affects every aspect of your life, your friendships, your relationships, your business, the feeling of success, and how much you can enjoy them. But truth is, money is just an enabler. And you shouldn't let that relationship in any way disable you and your life success.Money loves a purpose. It’s really important to understand what purpose money holds for you. By doing so, you create that emotional connection. And when you create emotional connection, you are able take and make intentional action that helps lead towards your goals. Your money mindset is the inner conversation you have with yourself, the feelings and the actual relationship that you have with money. But what makes it even more important is that it is directly linked to your sense of self value, self worth, and self confidence. However, you need to be aware of the subliminal messages that you are providing to yourself around your own sense of self value and self worth. When you start to do the inner work, you start to realize the impression that you are giving to the outside world with regards to how you value yourself, how you value what you do, and how you value the results that you bring for your clients. Working on yourself doesn't just get reflected in your bank account. It also gets reflected in your own feelings of self confidence because of the linkage between that and your sense of self value and self worth.A daily affirmation I have around money is, “the more money I earn, the more people I serve, the more people I serve, the more money I earn.”Finding and having the right tools to genuinely connect with your self confidence and relationship with money are vital to support you head on where you want to be.Connect with MeFREE Resources www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/resources/My website www.themoneyconfidenceacademy.com/Join my Facebook Group www.facebook.com/groups/moneyconfidencecommunityFollow me on Instagram www.instagram.com/lesleythomascoaching/Connect with me on LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/lesley-thomas Hosted on Acast.

Her resilience and determination to start anew is truly inspirational. Join me and Silvia as we talk about her money story, her principles and values, not only as a mother but also an entrepreneur. Enjoy tuning in!Key TakeawaysCommitment in what you do is vital. As an entrepreneur, you do everything in blood, sweat and tears. But then you see results and you get to build something and that gives you so much satisfaction.Silvia’s take regarding the kind of money mindset/message her children picks up from her – She says to encourage children to have an entrepreneurial spirit but at the same time find the balance of reality. We have to keep them connected to the value of things.Be rational. If you want to do something, it's all a matter of give and take, you give as much as you take. In order for your business to grow, you can’t rely solely in yourself. When you are doing things on your own, you reach a capacity, you keep burning candles on both ends, then burn out. If you want to grow your business, you really need to think about what investment is needed, and where it's neededYou can do whatever you want, and you can do things that you wouldn't have thought possible.
