If you’ve got a really big vision of how you can make a positive impact in the world, you’ll need to have some new power tools in your business growth toolbox.

When you are a thought leader or change maker, you’ll be navigating new terrain, setting goals that feel way bigger than you feel capable of, making decisions without a lot of clarity and learning to trust others to help you grow.

Being a world-changer requires inner fundamentals that most entrepreneurs have not yet developed.

As entrepreneurs, our ability to produce consistent revenue is heavily influenced by our mindset. Beliefs, cultural norms, childhood conditioning and even our current world events all factor into our story about money and success.

In my experience, you tell a story about the financial results you currently have, and that story locks you into a pattern that can be hard to break…

…unless you learn how to elevate your money story so that you increase your capacity to receive money.

On episode 291 of Amplify Your Success Podcast, hear my story about raising my money game as a business owner and why it is advantageous for you to improve your own internal dialogue about being prosperous.
