2024 Vision: Women Leading Financial Conversations
In the 2023 wrap-up episode of the Real Money podcast, I wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on my personal growth and share some insights with you. Over the past year, I have taken a deep dive into my own limiting beliefs and how they have impacted my financial and personal life. Through my NLP certifications and personal journeys, I have learned some hard lessons about my own value and worth, and how it has affected my business and relationships.
Professional and Personal Insights
Navigating Personal Relationships
As a podcaster and business owner, I have come to realize the importance of healthy personal relationships. In the past, I allowed people to use me and did not establish healthy boundaries. However, this year I have eliminated every toxic relationship in my life as a result of the work I have done. I have learned to create healthy, strong boundaries around my time and how I spend my money. This has resulted in fewer, closer people in my life, and I am excited to continue thriving with them in the upcoming year.
Establishing Business Boundaries
Being in the finance industry for the past 10 years has taught me some hard lessons as a business owner. One of the biggest lessons I learned this year was about my own value and worth. It took me this year to understand how my own limiting beliefs about myself have been holding me back and how they have created some not-so-desirable financial results. By going through my NLP certifications, I was able to peel back and uncover the darker parts of myself and my unworthy conversation. This has allowed me to establish healthy boundaries in my business relationships, resulting in the most healthy relationships I have ever had.
Eliminating Toxic Relationships
During my NLP journey, I was required to go back into my childhood and look at things that happened in my imprinting years. Through this, I discovered that for so many reasons, I had a huge unworthy conversation. This unworthy conversation resulted in me attracting relationships around me that did not have my best intentions in mind. However, as a result of the work that I have done this year, I have eliminated every toxic relationship out of my life. This has allowed me to create quality, healthy, happy, and vibrant relationships that I am excited to continue nurturing in the upcoming year.
Learning from Marriage
As I reflect on my journey, I have realized that vulnerability is key to building healthy relationships. This year, I learned a valuable lesson about vulnerability in my marriage. My husband gave me feedback that I wasn’t as open, honest, and vulnerable as I could be. I didn’t understand what he meant until I attended one of my certification training sessions. During the training, I raised my hand and asked my trainer about my husband’s feedback. We dug deeper and discovered that my fear of losing control and looking stupid was preventing me from being vulnerable with my husband. I have since learned how to share deeper parts of myself and communicate my emotions more openly.
Acknowledging Emotional Barriers
Through my NLP certifications, I have come to understand how my own limiting beliefs were holding me back. This year, I delved into the depths of myself to uncover how my unworthy conversation affected my financial results. I realized that for years, my sense of worth was tied to what I could do for other people. I had a huge unworthy conversation that stemmed from experiences in my childhood, including being molested at the age of three and being put on the news at the age of five. These experiences created patterns in my imprinting years that made me believe I would be used, manipulated, and exploited.
Personal Loss and Emotional Sharing
This year, I experienced personal loss when my grandmother passed away. This was a huge emotional experience for me, and I learned the importance of sharing my emotions with others. Through my personal journeys and discoveries, I try to share what I think is relevant so that others can know that they’re not alone. Vulnerability is key to building healthy relationships, and it has taken me this year to understand how my own limiting beliefs about myself have been holding me back. By acknowledging my emotional barriers and learning from my experiences, I have eliminated toxic relationships from my life and created healthy, strong boundaries around my time and money.
Anticipating Future Growth
As I reflect on my journey in the financial industry, I am excited to see what the future holds. With the lessons I have learned about my own value and worth, I am confident in my ability to continue growing and expanding my business. I anticipate future growth in the following areas:
- Expanding my reach through speaking engagements and collaborations with other industry leaders
- Developing new products and services that meet the evolving needs of my clients
- Increasing my online presence through social media and digital marketing
By staying focused on my goals and continuing to learn and adapt, I am confident that I can achieve even greater success in the years to come.
