How you treat your money matters, and here’s why…


I spend a lot of time talking with entrepreneurs about money in their life and business. Many entrepreneurs come to me because they don’t have enough money in their business, and they don’t know how to generate more of it on a consistent basis. Let’s dive into your relationship with money, because it matters!  

Some entrepreneurs actually avoid money. They refuse to look at the balance of their checking account, or credit card. They go to the grocery store and in the checkout line they hope and pray that their payment will go through. They don’t track their income and expenses on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

This is a very disempowered way to be in relationship with money AND, frankly, it’s disrespectful. And why would you want to ignore or avoid abundant energy?

Money will always be one of your most intimate partners. Ignoring money, or berating it for it not being what you want or need it to be, is a dysfunctional and abusive relationship pattern.

I encourage you to have a relationship with money. Personify it. Let it be a contributor to your business. Treat it the way you want to be treated - understand what it needs and wants. Dialogue with it. Ask money powerful questions, like:

  • What do you look like?
  • What would you like me to know about you?
  • What turns you off?
  • What do you need from me to grow our relationship?
  • What do you want for me?
  • What action steps do you want me to take to bring you closer to me?

Your money deserves respect. It deserves your time, attention and appreciation. Do not talk down to it, belittle it, ignore it or yell at it. Be as grateful to pay your bills as to receive money. Because you earned that money, and you earned the right to pay those bills. When you choose gratitude for your money, when you respect it as the powerful energetic force that it is, guess what happens? It wants to spend more time with you. Always remember, how you treat your money matters. 

P.S. Be sure to let me know in the comments your biggest takeaway! (I respond to every comment personally.)

Hi Emma, This is great. Over the years I have done much inner work around money and looking at and letting go of the beliefs I have held that no longer serve me. Recently however, I came to the realization through the deep exploration I am doing in your Soul-Aligned 90-Day Business Coaching Program, that there was something deeper for me underpinning those beliefs. I resented having to WORK, which is how most of us receive money. And I didn't really like the jobs I had either. I had to begin working at 15 to help support the family when my mother became ill. I had to return to work as a 24 year old single mother of a one -year- old when my husband and I divorced. I had to return to work when my second husband's farm nearly foreclosed. ya-da-ya-da-ya-da. Once I saw that my victim mentality was blocking me, turning I" had to work" to provide for others into I was "able to work" and help provide for others has made all the difference. And now there is only myself to provide for and I am creating and aligning with enjoyable work I feel called to do, so money, naturally is beginning to come in. Thanks for the 90-Day safe space that has helped me dive deep and resolve this and other issues that no longer serve me.
