If you don’t like the financial results in your small business up to this point then chances are your money mindset is a factor. Money mindset is your ideas, beliefs and thought patterns around making and having money in your life.

If you have an easy time making sales and creating a six figure plus business, you most likely have a highly prosperous mindset. That means as an entrepreneur you are willing to think bigger and tackle the more challenging growth activities in your business.

But if someone tends to grapple with profitability, never has enough cash in the bank and feels frustrated by the process of marketing or sales, then that’s usually a sign of a struggle mindset.

On episode 107 of Amplify Your Success Podcast learn seven powerful prosperity mindsets designed to help you CRUSH IT this year in your money game.
