Sometimes the weight you need to lose isn’t on your body

  Imagine we are all born with an empty suitcase. Imagine that each time you go through some kind of trauma or negative event in your life, you put a potato in that suitcase. The size of the potato you put in would reflect the significance of that event. If you appropriately dealt with the experience at the time, you get to take the potato out.

How can I overcome feelings of unworthiness around money?

Last week I sent out an email to my peeps asking to get to know them better by them sharing with me what they’re struggling with, and questions they’d like to ask me. One of the questions I got was; “How can I overcome feelings of unworthiness when it comes to money? I am going into business and don’t want to sabotage it before it’s even off the ground! Thank you for your work- it’s because of your support (and…
