In this episode, I’m sharing why this statement simply isn’t true, and tangible steps you can take to start disproving this belief about yourself in order to take control of your finances and live in abundance.

Here are some things to try if you think you’re not good at numbers:
In Atomic Habits, James Clear talks about taking on the habits of someone with a specific identity. What are the thoughts and habits of someone who is “good with money?” Try shifting your thoughts and habits to these.
Go back and listen to episode 4 of the podcast and work on some of these financial habits. By implementing these straightforward habits over the next 30 days, you’ll build your confidence in your ability to manage money with intention and ease.
Once you have these habits down, build your wealth. Make investments with the cash flow in your business. Before you know it, you’ll catch yourself saying how good you are at numbers and finances (and you’ll be right!).
