Are you tired of feeling trapped in a cycle of financial struggle and self-sabotage? It’s time to break free from the limitations that have been programmed into your wealth blueprint.
But what exactly is a wealth blueprint? Let’s delve into it.
Your wealth blueprint is the subconscious framework that shapes your beliefs, attitudes, and behaviours around money. It originates from a combination of factors, including your upbringing, societal influences, and past experiences. From a young age, you absorbed messages about money from your family, friends, and the culture around you. These messages often ingrained ideas such as “money doesn’t grow on trees” or “rich people are greedy.”
Over time, these deeply ingrained beliefs can cause financial angst and self-sabotage. You may find yourself replicating patterns of scarcity, fear, or limitations that were passed down to you. These subconscious beliefs can manifest as an aversion to taking risks, difficulty receiving wealth, or even a fear of success itself.
They create an invisible barrier that hinders your ability to attract and create the abundance and prosperity you desire.
But here’s the exciting part: you have the power to rewrite your wealth blueprint and design a new path to success. By infusing empowering principles into your mindset, you can break free from the limitations of your past and create a life of financial freedom and abundance.
In this blog, we will explore seven transformative principles that you can implement to upgrade your wealth blueprint. These principles helped me personally when I was in a hole financially – I was £50k in personal debt and riding the feast or famine rollercoaster. For instance, I’d have 4 or 5 great income months and suddenly it would stop for no explicable reason, for months at a time! It was so confusing and I was filled with shame, insecurity and a lot of anger around my situation.
I wasn’t until I dug deep and literally put myself into a self-imposed experiment to observe myself and figure out my money stories that I was able to clear my debt completely within 6 – 7 months and create stability and financial abundance and greater well-being than I’d ever experienced. You can read about how I overcame my debt and more here: Paid In Full: Free Yourself From The Burden of Debt and Live Your Best Life NOW!
I learned and applied these principles and as you practice them for yourself, they will help you shift your beliefs, develop a success-oriented mindset, and embrace the abundance that awaits you.
Are you ready to unlock the secrets to a brighter financial future? Let’s dive into these seven principles and rewrite your wealth blueprint and open the doors to unlimited possibilities, and greater abundance and prosperity! Let the transformation begin!
Principle 1: I Create My Life
Have you ever noticed how easy it is to slip into a victim mindset when it comes to money?
Blaming, complaining, and justifying are tell-tale signs of the victim mentality. Blaming others or circumstances for your financial situation is like pointing the finger without taking any responsibility. Complaining about what’s wrong without taking action keeps you stuck in a loop of negativity, and justifying your choices by saying things like “Money’s not important, I value love over money” may be a defence mechanism to mask your financial struggles.
But here’s the truth: money is important in areas where it works and unimportant in areas where it doesn’t.
Think of blame, justification, and complaining as stress reducers. They provide temporary relief from the fear of failure. But ask yourself this: if you weren’t experiencing some form of failure, would you need to resort to blaming, complaining, or justifying? Probably not.
It’s time to reclaim your power and acknowledge that you are the creator of your own life story, including your financial situation. By taking responsibility for your choices and actions, you empower yourself to rewrite your money story. Acknowledge that you have the ability to shape your financial reality and manifest true abundance in your life.
Principle 2: Aim for Success, Not Survival
Imagine playing a game where your sole focus is on defence. Your chances of winning would be slim and none. The same principle applies to life and wealth. If you’re solely focused on survival and security, you’re limiting your potential for true abundance and success. It’s like settling for “just enough to get by” and playing small.
Instead, shift your mindset and set your sights on something greater. Creating grander visions for your life is the key to unlocking the doors of abundance. Now, I’m not talking about fancy houses or luxurious cars if that doesn’t resonate with you. It’s about connecting with what truly lights up your soul and flooding your consciousness with that grander vision.
Imagine this: maybe your deepest desire is to make a positive impact and reach as many people as possible. That’s your passion and purpose. Now, here’s the exciting part. When you have greater resources, you can amplify your impact and turn that vision into a reality. It’s about having the means to make a difference on a larger scale.
Principle 3: Know What You Want – The Power of Clarity
The road to success begins with a clear destination in mind. Many people stumble because they lack a concrete vision. Take the time to define what you truly desire.
Perhaps you dream of financial freedom, but subconscious beliefs about wealth hold you back. Challenge these beliefs and envision the possibilities. Visualize yourself enjoying the fruits of your labour and leading a fulfilling life. As your vision becomes crystal clear, the universe will conspire to help you achieve it.
Principle 4: Promote Yourself and Your Value – Embrace Your Worth
Selling and self-promotion often carry negative connotations. I once coached a woman who said: “sales people are so dishonest, they’d sell their own grandmother to make a quick buck”. This is a belief that she’d picked up early in childhood, and through confirmation bias she had plenty of evidential stories of dishonest sales people!! Problem was, this belief was causing her to self sabotage, preventing her from selling her coaching services. After all, her subconscious wants to protect her from being associated with such dishonesty!
Break free from these limiting beliefs. Recognise that promoting yourself is an opportunity to showcase the value you provide. Embrace your unique talents and contributions. When you align your intentions with the highest good, selling becomes an act of service. Embrace your worth and confidently share your gifts with the world.
Principle 5: Be an Outstanding Receiver – Embrace Abundance
Receiving can be challenging for many of us. Let go of feelings of unworthiness and scarcity. Imagine a close friend giving you a heartfelt compliment. Instead of deflecting it, accept it graciously. Similarly, when abundance flows into your life, receive it with open arms.
This one was particularly challenging for me. I used to have to fight back hot tears of shame whenever I received gifts of money because it was so uncomfortable for me. I shifted this by focusing on a new belief that all money and gifts are from the Universe, and people are the conduit through which that money, and those gifts can be delivered.
Recognise that you are deserving of all the blessings that come your way. Embrace the joy of receiving and trust that there is enough for everyone.
Principle 6: Manage Your Money Well – Nurture a Healthy Relationship
I love the question “If money were a lover, would it stick around?” Consider it well. Do you blow hot and cold i.e “I love you! I hate you!”? Are you sometimes dismissive of money, or perhaps you get all needy and grabby around it…
If money were a lover, seriously…would it stick around? One way to reveal the depths of your feelings about money and how you treat it is to write a love letter to money.
Begin “Dear money…” And then let your pen flow. I’m sure you’ll be amazed by the insights this exercise reveals.
The important thing here is to treat money as a valued partner in your journey. Cultivate a healthy relationship by giving it attention and care. Just as you would nurture a romantic relationship, invest time in understanding your financial inflows and outflows. Set aside regular “dates” to reconcile your accounts and track progress.
Picture money as a trusted ally that supports your dreams. By managing your money with intention and respect, you invite greater abundance into your life.
Principle 7: Turn Your Problems into Projects
Shift your perspective on problems and turn them into projects waiting to be tackled. Replace the disempowering word “problem” with the empowering term “project.” That one word reframe only can create a total cognitive shift that can have an immediate improvement on your ability to take action.
Once you’ve made the reframe, then get clear on your desired outcome, break down the project into baby steps and mini milestones and then take the necessary action toward resolution.
This helped me enormously when it came to sorting out my finances both for my personal taxes and my business accounts. I was so intimated and overwhelmed that I kept procrastinating on getting myself organised. It wasn’t until I turned it from a problem into a project that I was able to sit myself down and take the necessary steps which included calling in the right support i.e my accountant and a financial advisor.
So, I hope you’re feeling inspired by these seven principles to upgrade your wealth blueprint! By taking 100% responsibility for your life, focusing on success, knowing what you want, promoting yourself, being an outstanding receiver, managing your money well, and turning problems into projects, you are well on your way to creating a life of abundance and prosperity.
Remember, you have the power to shape your financial destiny. Embrace these principles, take action, and watch as your wealth and success grow!

Hey there, fellow entrepreneur! Strap in, because we’re about to embark on a journey that will transform the way you face challenges and cultivate radical self-trust!
As we all know, being an entrepreneur is like riding a roller coaster – thrilling, yet filled with unexpected twists and turns. The highs are crazy good, and the lows can feel utterly crushing! Right?
In this blog, I want to share some practical strategies to help you feel empowered to conquer obstacles with confidence and develop that radical self-trust you need to navigate the journey and succeed.
At its core, radical self-trust is a profound belief in your own abilities, instincts, and decision-making capabilities as an entrepreneur. It means wholeheartedly relying on your own judgment, valuing your intuition, and having unwavering confidence in your skills and expertise.
Radical self-trust goes beyond mere self-confidence; it’s about embracing your unique strengths, accepting imperfections, and embracing the uncertainty that comes with entrepreneurship.
It empowers you to make bold choices, take risks, and navigate challenges with a deep-rooted belief that you have what it takes to succeed.
Radical self-trust serves as an anchor in stormy seas, guiding you through the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and allowing you to stay true to your vision and purpose. It’s a transformative mindset that fosters resilience, authenticity, and a relentless pursuit of your entrepreneurial dreams.
So, let’s buckle up and discover the secrets to entrepreneurial resilience together!
Embrace the Growth Mindset:
Picture this: setbacks and failures are not the end of the road but rather the fuel that propels you forward. That’s the power of a growth mindset!
It’s all about embracing challenges as opportunities for growth and learning. You’ve got to believe that you have the capacity to overcome any hurdle that comes your way. So, let’s reframe those pesky setbacks as stepping stones to your future triumphs. With a growth mindset, you’ll approach challenges with resilience and adaptability, ready to conquer the world!
Seek Support and Build a Network:
Who says being an entrepreneur means you have to go it alone? No way! I know that I couldn’t have got to where I am without my support system, whether that’s my friendship circle or my mastermind groups! Its essential to surround yourself with a tribe of supportive individuals who have your back. Seek out mentors who can guide you, join entrepreneur communities or networks, and connect with kindred spirits who understand the roller coaster ride you’re on.
Your support system is there to cheer you on, offer insights, and keep you accountable. Remember, you’re never alone on this entrepreneurial adventure!
Develop Emotional Resilience:
Alright, let’s get real for a moment. Entrepreneurship can be a wild emotional ride. From self-doubt to moments of pure excitement, it’s an emotional roller coaster. To cope with these challenges, it’s crucial to nurture your emotional resilience. Take care of yourself by incorporating self-care routines into your life. Sweat it out with some exercise, find your Zen with meditation, and practice mindfulness to keep stress at bay.
It’s also important to acknowledge and embrace your emotions. Yep, even the not-so-pleasant ones! They’re part of being human. Turn that self-doubt into self-belief by repeating positive affirmations that remind you of your strengths and capabilities. You’ve got this!
Take Calculated Risks:
Here’s the truth, my friend: entrepreneurship and risk go hand in hand like tea and crumpets. To cope with challenges, you need to become a risk-taking maestro. I’m not talking about jumping blindly into the unknown. Nope, I’m all about calculated risks. Assess the potential outcomes, explore alternative solutions, and make informed decisions based on the information at hand. Remember, failures are not the end of the world; they’re just stepping stones to success. So, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and embrace the adventure that lies beyond!
Celebrate Your Wins and Learn from Setbacks:
Developing radical self-trust requires acknowledging your achievements and embracing the lessons learned from setbacks. Celebrating your wins, big or small, reinforces your belief in your abilities and builds a positive mindset. Take time to reflect on your accomplishments, whether it’s securing a new client, launching your first ever marketing campaign, or overcoming a difficult obstacle. Recognise the value you bring to the table and the progress you’ve made.
Similarly, setbacks and failures are not indicators of your worth or potential. Instead, view them as valuable learning opportunities. Analyse what went wrong, identify lessons to be learned, and adapt your strategies accordingly. By learning from setbacks, you reinforce your self-trust by understanding that challenges are part of the journey and stepping stones to future success.
Remember, every win and setback is an opportunity to grow, improve, and deepen your trust in yourself. Celebrate ALL your wins to cultivate unwavering radical self-trust.
So, courageous entrepreneur, continue to move forward, one step at a time, knowing that you’re equipped to face challenges head-on and you can continue to develop the radical self-trust that will propel you to next level.
Embrace that growth mindset, build your support network, nurture your emotional resilience, take those calculated risks and celebrate your wins… Remember, challenges are just opportunities in disguise, and you have what it takes to conquer them.
So, dear one hold your head high, trust in yourself, and get ready to conquer the entrepreneurial world with unwavering self-belief.
Your journey awaits – let’s go!

As an entrepreneur, you know that growing your coaching business can be challenging. You may be wondering if hiring a coach is necessary or simply an unnecessary expense. After all, you can read books, and there’s plenty of free content available online.
So, do you really need a coach?
In short, yes. Hiring a coach can be a fundamental ingredient for success in every area of life and business.
As someone with ambitious goals and a desire to expand and evolve my own consciousness, I invest a significant portion of my income every year in my coaches and mentors. This investment has yielded remarkable results for me, and I am not alone. All the top performers in their field, be it sports, business, entertainment, or academia, have their coaches and mentors by their side.
What happens when you hire a coach to help you grow your coaching business?
Here are 7 benefits, I’d love you to add in the comments below what other benefits you’ve found:
1) Relief! The immediate and overwhelming sense of “Ahhhh, I’m not alone in this and I have someone who knows their stuff and can support and guide me and help me get past my shit!” (or is that just me??). Having a coach can help alleviate the stress of trying to figure out how to grow your business alone.
2) Accountability! No more procrastination and excuses! Accountability is a game-changer when you’re running your own business, especially if you’re new to working from home without a manager to answer to. A coach can help keep you on track and accountable for achieving your goals.
3) Integrity! When you invest in a coach, you’re energetically putting yourself in the right space to be hired by your prospects. If you say “I can’t afford a coach”, then you’re setting yourself up to attract clients with the same money blocks as you, who won’t be able to afford your rates!
4) Commitment! As the saying goes “those you pay, pay attention”. When you invest, you show up in a way that says “I’m serious” and when you take yourself seriously, the whole world responds in kind. If it’s an investment that scares you (which ideally it is), you’re up-levelling yourself and how you show up reflects that, after all, the investment is a part of the coaching. When my clients sign up to work with me in my Coaches Business Accelerator programme, they’re committed to doing what it takes to build a 6-figure coaching business.
5) Self-Belief! A good coach shifts your perspectives and helps you to fully step into your highest potential. Your coach holds a mirror up to your soul, revealing your innate strengths, gifts, and talents in a way that up-level your confidence and your self-belief and totally lights a fire under your ass.
6) Acceleration of results! Working with a coach crushes the timeline on your results as you’re investing in their wisdom, knowledge, and experience to avoid the pitfalls and help you take the fast route to success. Why waste time trying to figure this stuff out alone?
7) Transformation! We don’t know what we don’t know. A Coach reflects back your unconscious blocks, blind spots, and barriers so you can progress into a shifted, higher state of conscious awareness for true transformation. And remember your growth journey is never one and done. It’s ongoing and forever because as the saying goes “at every new level, there’s a new devil” AKA self-sabotaging patterns, subconscious blocks, and limiting beliefs!
There are many more benefits to hiring a coach for your ongoing business, and personal growth, these are just the headline pay-offs that you can expect.
As a side note, always do your due diligence before investing in a coach, such as checking testimonials, consuming their content so you get a sense of their values and whether they align with yours, and book a discovery call with them to ensure you’re a good fit.

Discover why your coaching business journey is a spiritual path: Lessons on Trust, Faith, and Alignment with Your Purpose. If you’re feeling alone, lost, and struggling in your coaching business, know that you’re not alone. In this blog, I want to remind you that business is a spiritual game, and the key to success is connecting with your passion, operating from your zone of genius, and letting go of what no longer serves you.
If you’ve been in your coaching business for any length of time, you’ll most likely relate to what I’m about to write:
Your business will bring you to your knees. It’ll break your heart, chuck you into the weeds and leave you exhausted, spent and despairing.
There’ll be dark night of the soul days, and times when you’re so consumed with fear that you can hardly breathe. The lows are lower than any lows you’ve ever known.
And to top it off, you’re on your own. Isolated.
You can’t talk to your loved ones. They already think you’re crazy. They already think you should quit and get a “proper” job. Instead all you can do is watch them go about their merry day. They’re not hyper-vigilant with stress about where the next bit of money is coming from and how they’re going to pay their bills. Bastards.
And then there’s everyone else on social media. Rubbing your face in it with their wins and successes and fuelling your fear that you’ll NEVER get there. Your heads a shed.
You spend a day crying it out. Releasing all that pressure that’s built up over the past weeks. And then, confusingly for everyone who doesn’t get it…
Within 24 hours, with renewed determination, drive and persistence you get back up and start all over again.
You know what I’m talking about, right?
We all go through it. Many many times over a number of years. No one has the monopoly on these dark despairing times. You’re never alone.
And I want to reassure you that you’re NEVER alone.
Let me share with you, as a result of my own on-going journey, what I’ve come to know for sure:
Business is a spiritual game.
> >>The highest state to be in in your business is to be connected, deeply, with your passion.
That’s the intrinsic energy that derives it’s source from within
> >>When you’re in alignment with your purpose, and you’re operating from your zone of genius, you’re in service.
Giving of your gifts and invoking powerful laws of reciprocity
> >>Those dark moments of pain are guiding you to lean in to great levels of trust, faith, surrender
>>>The governing Law of Cause and Effect is constantly mirroring back to you your beliefs – limiting or otherwise…Your results never lie.
If you’re not getting the results you desire, in spite of your action taking, then your beliefs are blocking you.
>>>Letting go of all that does not serve you. Worrying. We’ve been conditioned to believe that worrying is somehow going to solve the problem. So we lie in bed, all night, worrying. That pervasive lie just cause us to feel overextended, exhausted, stressed, foggy headed and disempowered.
>>>Changing your mindset around money
We’ve been raised in a society that teaches us to desire money to the point that we feel fear of lack…and then when we have it, we feel fear of loss. It’s a double-bind and it keeps people in scarcity. Money responds to your energy – it’s either attracted to, or repelled by you. Your job is to clean up your energies, smooth out your vibration, and expand your wealth consciousness so you’re on the same frequency as it.
As the great Rev. Michael Beckwith says “You can be the right person, doing the wrong thing and still get the right results. Or you can be the wrong person, doing the right thing, and still get the wrong results”
“Right person” meaning coming from a place of positive intention, service, compassion for self and others and of course love- for self and others.
You’re walking a truly spiritual path and there’s no turning back.
Find some space and silence for yourself
Lean in to trust and faith.
Let go, surrender
Your success is guaranteed.

As an entrepreneur, you know that personal growth is a constant process. You work on yourself, your business, and your entrepreneurial mindset.
However, no matter how much progress you make, there are always moments that can trigger old limiting beliefs and negative thoughts.
It can be frustrating to feel like you’re stuck in the same old cycle, your goals always out of reach, somewhere ‘out there’ in the distant future, but it’s important to recognize that these triggers are actually a sign of growth.
In this blog post, we’ll explore why triggers can be a sign of growth, and how you can use them to become the best version of yourself and reach your goals.
Recognise Triggers as a Sign of Growth
Triggers are situations or events that cause a strong emotional reaction. They can be positive or negative, and they often relate to past experiences or beliefs. When you experience a trigger, your body responds with a physiological reaction, such as an increased heart rate, a tightness or contraction in your chest, you may feel it in your solar plexus.
Triggers are often associated with negative experiences, but they can also be a sign of growth. If you’ve been busy taking action in your business, while working on your personal growth and mindset, you will be on a trajectory of expansion.
This inner expansion creates tension – your subconscious mind is being triggered to warn you that you’re stepping out of your comfort zone! It’s like a warning alarm alerting you that you’re heading into unknown, unfamiliar, and therefore unsafe, territory! Consciously, you desire this growth and expansion, but the nature of it’s newness means your subconscious mind feels threatened by it.
Whenever I, or my clients, feel overwhelmed with either negative stinking thinking, or negative emotions, then I know it’s a sign that we’re on our path, and the most important thing to do is to stay conscious. This means practicing detachment from the negative thoughts and feelings, and just observing them and letting go.
For example, let’s say you’ve been working on your money mindset for the past year. You’ve overcome limiting beliefs around money and started to see financial success in your business. However, when you receive a large bill, you feel triggered. You might think, “Why am I feeling this way? I thought I had overcome my money issues.”
The difference now is how you handle this situation. You recognise the emotion. I’d go so far as to say it’s worth celebrating the fact that you’re asking this question “Why am I feeling this way?” Because that’s a sign that you’re not being dragged into the rabbit hole completely – you’re observing what is happening. Reflect on your progress. A year ago, this bill would have sent you into a full-blown financial crisis. But now, you have the tools and mindset to handle the situation with confidence.
Compare your current reaction to a previous point in your life, and you’ll likely see how much you’ve raised your own bar, without even realising it.
Use Triggers to Become the Best Version of Yourself
Once you recognise triggers as a sign of growth, you can use them to become the best version of yourself. It starts with deciding who you need to become now in order to handle this next level situation. What needs to happen now to serve your highest good and everyone involved?
One way to use triggers to become the best version of yourself is by reframing the trigger itself. Instead of seeing triggers as setbacks and feel bad that you’re “Still being triggered“, see them as messages about where your next level growth is going to come from.
For example, let’s say you’re an introverted entrepreneur who has been working on your public speaking skills. You’ve made progress, and you’ve been doing great with live-streaming on social media. But when you’re asked to give a talk to a large audience, you feel a sense of dread and fear.
Instead of letting these emotions control you, actually welcome them! They are presenting to you the limiting beliefs that were hidden from view and are being triggered by the next level opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself.
As the saying goes new level, new devil.
You can handle this by reassuring that fearful part of you by saying “Thank you, but I’m good. I’ve got this. It’s safe for me to do this” Visualise yourself giving a confident and inspiring talk, and then take the necessary action to make it happen.
Don’t let feeling triggered stop you from advancing forward and achieving your goals but equally don’t be under any illusion that there will come a time when you’ll never feel fear again.
Fear comes with the territory. If we never felt the discomfort of growth and expansion, we would just go around in circles, never stepping into the highest and most powerful version of ourselves at any one time.
Don’t avoid your feelings. Yep, even the icky horrible ones. All feelings just wanna be felt. When we avoid them, distract ourselves so we don’t have to deal with them and push them down, we get to keep them!
When you allow them to be felt, you lean in and you relax your body and breathe in the face of the negative feelings they can be transmuted and dissipate.
