I see it all the time. Women do not get serious about money—making it or managing it—until a crisis hits.
Either their world falls apart, or feels like it’s about to. That’s when they finally take action.
I did it myself. I waited until a million dollar tax bill almost wiped me out. Not smart!! Not fun!! Not the best timing.
How about you? Are you avoiding your finances?
Instead of waiting for the pain to get worse than the fear or for your very foundation to be violently (or even mildly) shaken, try this experiment.
Focus on what inspires you and stop dwelling on what scares you.
Forget all the things that can go wrong.
Think about the joy of finally feeling financially free, the deep satisfaction of contributing to causes you’re passionate about, helping those people you love.
That’s what I finally did. I started thinking about what kind of a role model I wanted to be for my daughters instead of obsessing about my terror of screwing up.
When I made that shift, I had no choice…I could no longer let fear stop me!
