The work hard and you’ll be rewarded mentality I grew up with in the mid-west stuck with me as I moved into my career.
It was ingrained in me early on. I had my first official job in middle school at a local restaurant. I would bus tables and wash dishes on Friday nights, the busiest night of the week.
At the end of the night, I’d walk to my grandma and grandpa’s house because they lived close by. It was always fun to count my cash earnings with them at the end of the night and see smiles on their face. They were proud. On top of that, they’d spoil the heck out of me. Afterall, I just had a hard night of work – foot soaks, good food, conversation, and a little tv time with my grandparents were my added reward, on top of getting paid for a job well done.
Work hard. Money will follow.
Word hard I did. In my early career in consulting, that meant doing good work AND working long hours. Constantly being available to serve and support my clients. I loved it.
And I was rewarded for it.
It also annoyed my family to no end. “Are you done working yet?” they would often ask.
More recently, I’ve discovered another way.
Work with ease. Still be rewarded.
It’s a mindset shift that isn’t necessarily easy to make.
Luckily, I have Denise Duffield-Thomas on my side to help me navigate the mindset blocks around money that build up over years, but don’t necessarily have to take as long to break apart.
She and I got together recently for a chat and recorded it for you! She’s dropping some golden nuggets, which are especially timely as we roll into planning season, like:
- You don’t have to do it all this year.
- It’s okay to promote yourself.
- Why mindset shifts come before business strategy and planning.
My clients have told me Denise’s books should be required reading! To top it off, she is currently running her Lucky Bitch Bootcamp program LIVE. It’s a must for anyone who wants more abundance and is ready to make some massive mindset shifts around money.
I’m going through it live with Denise and would love for you to join us if you are ready to clear some of your money blocks too!
