    Is Your Business Model Still Working? (for the creatives + business owners)

    Is Your Business Model Still Working? (for the creatives + business owners)

    Dear Friend,

    Most of my financial therapy work has to do with helping people create a more mindful, savvy and empowered relationship to money.

    This could be in the realm of personal finances, couples finances and even in business finances.

    In my Mentor program, which is a group program for therapists, coaches and financial professionals, I’m additionally supporting folks to create a more sustainable business.

    In that context, we’re not just working on our money psychology, we’re also working on new ways of offering our services and adding new revenue streams.

    And the way you do that has everything to do with your business models.

    There’s a funny thing about running a business though: once you do it for several years, you realize that the business model you thought would bring in great revenue forever…sometimes starts to not work so well.

    And when that happens, it’s time for a business model update.

    There are dozens of things that can change in the outside world that can lead to you needing to change something in your business model. It could be changes in a social media platform’s algorithm or something larger like a worldwide pandemic.

    And, there can be dozens of things that can change in our inner world that can also lead us needing to update our business models, such as having a new baby, going through a divorce, or experiencing a health crisis.

    Sometimes we just need to find creative ways to adapt and adjust our own business model so that it works better for the particular life phase that we are in.

    After a recent class I led for my Art of Money Mentor group, I had a strong intuition that there are more of you out there who might be facing challenges in your business or private practice that could be less challenging if you updated your business model.

    And I knew then that I had to share the audio recording from this call, because I took a deep dive into the topic of business models: what they are, why we need to change them, examples of different kinds of models, and a box full of stories from times when I’ve had to change my own business models.

    So today, I want to share this recording with you from my most recent Mentor Group call.

    If you have a business or private practice that could use a business model shift, I hope you find some helpful nuggets in this recording!

    Here’s to getting creative and fine-tuning,

    Exploring Enoughness and True Security with Author of Lost and Found, Geneen Roth

    Exploring Enoughness and True Security with Author of Lost and Found, Geneen Roth

    In this candid interview, Geneen shares her own money story about losing her life savings to Bernie Madoff and how it changed her relationship with money - and herself - forever. If you are seeking to bring a deeper sense of security to your money journey, if the question of enoughness resonates with you, I encourage you to do a gentle body check-in and listen in.

    Content Warning: Please be aware that while this interview is a candid conversation about our intimate relationships with money, enoughness, and ourselves, relationship with food, as well as disordered eating behaviors, do come up along the way. If today’s teaching is not right for you, please know I see you and always encourage you to honor your needs and well-being first and foremost.

    You’ll hear:

    - What Geneen learned from her lived experiences with scarcity, abundance, and losing everything more than once.
    - Why Geneen struggled with feeling disconnected from truly receiving (and spending!) the money she earned.
    - How the money beliefs Geneen inherited from her father helped her save even in times of scarcity - and kept her from being present with what she had.
    - Why trying to change “undesirable” behavior keeps you from getting curious about what you believe and why you behave the way you do.
    - How Geenen overcame catastrophic financial loss and found enoughness within.

    3 Powerful Somatic Practices to Cultivate Inner Safety

    3 Powerful Somatic Practices to Cultivate Inner Safety

    Dear Money Adventurer,

    Sometimes, as we move deeper into our relationship with money, we find that this work brings up old wounds or painful emotions that we thought we had healed.

    These moments are a testament to your mindful awareness and personal growth, yet their unfolding can feel disorienting and overwhelming.

    Finding yourself moving through painful histories while also simultaneously trying to learn new practical money skills can feel like the ground is giving way beneath your feet.

    You might feel like a child again, yearning for care and support amid difficulty, longing for safety and stability that you cannot provide yourself.

    In the midst of these truths lies another: in turning inward to bring awareness and compassion to the places where we feel unsafe, we can learn to cultivate a deeper sense of inner safety to ground us through life’s ebbs and flows.

    The somatic term for this feeling-safe-in-your-body-no-matter-what is “self-regulation.” – Just as the name suggests, it is a gift that we can cultivate for ourselves.

    I’m going to share three of my favorite somatic practices to help you foster a sense of internal safety as you navigate your money journey.

    These body-based exercises are simple, yet profoundly powerful.

    When you find yourself struggling with money stress, discomfort, or any big emotion, these personal practices can help you feel supported as you learn to self-regulate with compassion and gentle curiosity.

    Let me show you how.
