How do you get wealthy running your own business?
People ask me some version of that question all the time.
And, of course, there are many ways to answer that question.
The first place I like to start is to examine the question itself…
…that’s because many people SAY they want money. BUT they see it as some entity outside of themselves that will magically show up, and then they’ll never have to worry again. Much like the prince on the white horse of our childhood fairy tales, we will be rescued at last.
When we ask for money, but then step back, and WAIT – eyes closed, crossing our fingers, hoping for the best – we give our power away.
The belief being, I can’t do this myself…
As a coach, what I’ve seen when it comes to wealth and business is that the real solution is to step IN.
That means you must examine your life, your mindset, your numbers and your business to find the answers for how to get wealthy in your business.
I call this “Aligning with Wealth.”
These are the three principles for Aligning with Wealth for Business Owners:
1 – Wealth = Worth
When it comes to anything involving money (pricing, invoicing, selling, making offers) you revert to old patterns that have ruled your life for years. You’re scared of hurting people’s feelings, of saying “no” to non-ideal clients or of checking-in with yourself to discover what’s truly driving you.
When you simply want approval, or don’t want people to judge you, you give your power away to other people. You choose the path of least resistance, not the path of clarity.
This drains you.
As a business owner – Aligning with Wealth means that you know and claim your worth. You have to learn how to price yourself and stand firmly in that pricing, to make offers, and to sell with service.
This comes from a place of self-worth. You can hope for it all you want, but wealth can’t “arrive” without you first finding your worth.
2 – Wealth = Being IN RELATIONSHIP with money.
You dream of the day you can hire the perfect accountant or bookkeeper and never have to deal with those pesky numbers again.
Not so fast, cupcake!
Yes, hire all the help you want to hire. I’m all for it. But you must keep your heart and body IN RELATIONSHIP with your money.
This means you can’t avoid the discomfort and fear by turning your back and hoping it will go away.
BECOMING a successful business owner means you’re willing to see all the “stuff” that’s in between you and your success and your wealth.
I speak from experience. People sometimes seem to think that just because I’m running a 7-figure business that I just sit back and drink margaritas and don’t even think about money.
Quite the opposite.
I have to check in with my heart and with the numbers as a habit. What habits do you need to create to stay in relationship with your money?
3 – Wealth = Using money as a channel.
Money is NOT an energy, as so many people like to tell you.
Money is actually a channel.
When you pay for something, you investing in yourself through the product or service you buy. The money is a channel for your COMMITMENT.
Likewise, when your clients pay you, they’re not giving you money. They’re investing in their results through your service or your product.
When you pay someone, you’re not spending money – you are investing in YOUR results through their service or product. (Read that again.)
Start living by this principle – and you will be wealthy.
Here’s the deal. You may THINK you know this stuff, but you can’t actually KNOW it if you’re not actually USING it in your life, on the daily.
You get results when you go beyond thoughts. When you go to the root beliefs and take the actions from the Law of Aligning with Wealth. Anything less becomes chaotic vibration and that will throw money off your scent.

Which of these three principles of Aligning with Wealth is keeping you stuck, and seems near impossible for you to wrap not just your head, but your SOUL around?
