How To Change Your Money Mindset
Learn How To Change Your Money Mindset With Kassandra Dasent Your money mindset is what will make or break your personal financial success. Creating an abundant view of money is the goal of Kassandra Dasent our podcast guest today.
Join us as we talk about how to channel your energy towards changing how you view money so that you can actually achieve financial success. This podcast is seriously amazing. Kassandra really understands why we choose to make poor financial decisions even when we know better and her ideas on how to shape the way you view money will blow your mind away.
If you are struggling to control your money and need a shot in the arm to get your reenergized please take a few minutes to listen to this podcast - you won't be disappointed.
Kassandra is a firm believer in taking accountability for your money choices. She was a successful commercial credit analyst managing multiple million-dollar accounts but felt like a fraud because she had $55,000 in debt and was continually making poor money choices.
In order to be successful at money management, you have to open your mind to an abundant mindset. In order to do this, you need to give a strong voice to your why. It needs to be more than just saying I want to pay off debt. You need to be able to look at the big picture and give yourself a reason that will give you the incentive to make the sacrifices you need.
For Kassandra, this breakthrough came when she met a man she hoped to marry and realized that her financial situation was holding her back.
After paying off her debt and completely changing her money mindset Kassandra realized that she wanted to do more with her life.
She was in a high-stress job that was causing her anxiety and depression and went through her own midlife crisis. She eventually decided to quit her job and has become a money mindset coach and speaker.
One of her biggest passions is to help people identify their emotional connection with money so that they can begin to control their money rather than having their emotions control their management of money.
How to become successful with money To be successful with money you have to realize that most of your financial habits tie back to your own feelings of self-worth and self-respect. If you look back at the financial patterns in your life most of the time they are caused by specific events.
For example, in Kassandra’s case, she was born in Trinidad and migrated to Canada when she was six with her single mother. There was never enough money and as a result, most of her spending occurred as a result of a need to feel and look like she was successful.
For her spending money meant that she was successful and had moved beyond the poverty of her childhood.
In order to change your money mindset you need to follow these three steps: 1. Take responsibility for your financial choices and own your decisions.
2. Learn how to identify your financial triggers.
3. Create process and systems that will help you shift your focus and gain control of your money.
One of the ways she does this successfully is by constantly setting financial (and personal) goals. If you want to avoid recidivism with your money then you have to realize that every financial goal you achieve is just a plateau that will help you achieve an even bigger goal.
If you want to learn how to change your money mindset from a scarcity mentality to an abundant mindset mentality you really, really need to listen to this podcast.
One of the biggest nuggets I got from this podcast was the concept of capturing money from both ends of the spectrum.
I’m a huge believer in always paying myself first. Every single time I get paid I put 10% of my income towards my saving goals (check out my retirement plan here).
Paying yourself first is a great way to begin taking control of your money, but according to Kassandra, you also need to focus on paying yourself last.
What this means is that you should put all of your focu
Why You Should Never Limit Your Business Ideas
When you start a small business you literally become a jack of all trades. You have to learn just a little bit about everything to become successful.
Maribeth Sublette and Cody Waltz have taken this to the extreme and completely pivoted their businesses multiple times. Learn more about their amazing business ability to optimize their network and marketing skills to completely break the limits of what they thought was possible.
Both of them started out as small shop vendors, Maribeth sold Mom and baby matching t-shirts and Cody organic baby clothing. They loved what they were doing, but saw a need for small local markets for themselves and other vendors to sell their products.
Rather than just hope someone created a place for them to sell their products they went out and started their own market called The Made With Love Market.
As their market grew and expanded, they began to realize that many of the small business woman they were working with needed additional support and direction to build their businesses to the next level. They wanted other businesses owners to dream big as well.
As a result, they decided to host a 1-day conference, called Built With Love to help women who want to start a small business or small business owners who need some specialized training in various business-related fields.
The podcast is full of insight for Cody and Maribeth on how they founded each of their businesses and the thought and strategy behind each business step.
We talk extensively about overcoming obstacles, how to market yourself and how they used networking to quickly grow their vendor list for the Made With Love Market and then find speakers for the Built With Love Conference.
On the other end, they had to completely shift their marketing to drive traffic to the Made With Love Market and then find small business owners to attend their conference.
The marketing and thought behind what they have built is amazing and I think it will really give you guys some insight into how you can build and grow your own audiences.

Retiring Early by Achieving Financial Freedom With Cody Berman
Have you dreamed of retiring early, but are not sure how to accomplish this goal? If so, you need to listen to Cody Berman from Fly To Fi who is on his first round of retirement at 23!
Join us as we talk to Cody about how he planned out his business and income streams so that he could reach this goal.
After reading the book the 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris (a book I highly recommend) Cody decided that he was going to change his life and begun by dislodging the time money narrative.
In order to be successful you can't trade your time for money, you need to find ways to think outside the box and creating multiple revenue streams.
He believes that by front loading your work and creating processes within your businesses that you can easily set up business that will gradually take care of themselves and produce a steady income stream.
While building up his business Cody also realized that he needed to drastically cut his expenses in order to have the financial freedom he craved.
Cody got to the point where he was able to cut his expenses to $1,000 per month. Some of his frugal living tips are a bit extreme (you’ll get a kick out of some of them), but they are effective!
After saving $35,000 Cody had a lightbulb moment and realized that he had 35 months to try out his entrepreneurial dreams.
Cody is currently on a 3 month RV tour with Grant Sabatier promoting his latest book – Financial Freedom – A Proven Path to all the Money You’ll Ever Need.
I haven’t had a chance to read this book yet, but have it cued up on my audible account for my next road trip. It has great reviews though, so I recommend checking it out.
If you want a podcast that will help you think outside the box I highly recommend listening to Cody Berman.
One of Cody’s greatest strengths is in his ability to just start. He is a firm believer in the power of failure, and I can guarantee that his story will inspire you to get out and try something new.
