How can I learn to be ‘good with money'? (Part 2 of 3 Abundance Series)

How can I learn to be ‘good with money'?

by Caroline Stewart

If you don’t consider yourself to be a ‘money’ person, that’s cool.  Buuuut…you better get good at it if you want your biz to take off or to secure financial stability.

So often, us heart-centred biz owners shy away from talking about money.  And don’t even think about actually planning on creating any!

The problem with this is that money is an essential currency in the flow of our business.  Money is our main tool for trade and commerce.

Now, where I think we get hung up here (and rightfully so!) is with the LOVE OF MONEY.  The love of money is when we idolize money and seek only to accumulate in order to hord. 

But, we don’t need to go down that path, do we?  Well, maybe we’ll touch into it.  I mean, we’re learning aren’t we? There’s nothing wrong with falling a bit and getting back up again.

Ok, so that was actually the first step in learning how to be ‘good with money’.  It’s the understanding that money isn’t evil - it’s the love of money that causes suffering.

The next part is where it gets fun - it’s the understanding that money is energy!  Woot woot!  We’re all into this energy stuff aren’t we?

And if money is energy, that we’ve got this, right?

Maybe…we need to take this understanding and actually APPLY it to our biz (and our life in general).  And this comes down to learning how to manage our energy.

Like I talked about last week with Abundance (check it out - it’s a good one!) - we must circulate in order to experience wealth and ultimately abundance.
