What is Your Money Mindset?

I was talking with a friend the other day and I couldn’t believe the conversation. She had seen my posts on facebook and on my blog about making money from home and wanted to know more. I explained to her that she has a lot of great things to talk about when we talk, so she could write those things in a blog and share her posts with others and begin making money. We will teach her everything she needs to know once she gets started.

She asked “How much money can I make?”

I answered “As much as you want. It’s entirely dependent on how much you put into it. This is a business. It requires real effort to earn real money.”

She said “I don’t know. If I make more than a couple hundred a week I will lose my food stamps. Do you know if I will be making that?”

I said “You know…on second thought…this probably is NOT for you”

I was flabbergasted!! Lose food stamps??? HELLO??? What is wrong with society these days? This person is afraid to make money because she will lose the handout she’s getting?? Don’t get me wrong… food stamps are there to help people when they are down. But…they are NOT meant to be a lifestyle. That is possibly the most ludicrous statement I’ve ever heard in my entire life!

Where is your money mindset?

Are you stuck in poverty mode?

When you hear of the big income earners, what is your reaction? Do you think “I could never do that” or “That must be a lie” or something like that?

Or do you think “YES…now I know what is possible in this company!!”

Your mindset will determine where you go from here.

How Much Money Will I Make Working From Home

Here is a question I received this week.  I have received permission from the writer to answer it here on my blog because others may have the same question.


You say that you have made enough money over the past 12 years working from home to support your family of four.  I am sick and tired of my job.  It sucks.  I have enough money in the bank to support my family for about a month.  Can you guarantee that I will make money if I start this home business with you?  Also, the thing I really love and would like to blog about is animals.  I have dogs and cats and rescue other animals.  Is that something I can make money blogging about?

Thank you,


Hi KT,

First of all, NO ONE can guarantee your income or even guarantee that you will make any money.  My success is based on my efforts as your success will be based on your efforts.  You must commit to doing a couple hours of work EVERY day.  This is not a “set it and forget it” type of business.  It’s very important that you understand that.

With that said…yes…you can blog about animals and have good results if you follow the steps we outline for you.  That’s the beauty of this system.  It will work with any business, any topic.  A good friend of mine, Kim Klaver, began her business with Empower Network about 3.5 months ago.  She has made well over $60K and was invited by the company to a special retreat for the top 100 income earners in Empower.  She started at the bottom with no one, just like I did.  Just like you would.

I would not, however, recommend that you quit your job before you start making money with this.  If you have 2 hours a day (everyone can find 2 hours a day to make money), you can do the steps and work Empower to start making money.  When you have sold a few of the blogging systems and inner circle memberships, you will be making enough to pay for your monthly costs and have some extra coming in.   The more time and effort you can put into it, the faster you will go.  It’s all up to you.  After you start making money and see how easy it is, you can come up with an exit strategy of when your last day at your job will be.  The beauty of this system is that you can blog about anything you want.  So, yes, you can blog about what you love!

So…let’s get you started right away.  The quicker you get started, the quicker we can help you start making money.

I look forward to working with you!




What is Holding You Back?

I got asked a question the other day and wanted to answer it here on my blog.  Thank you CJ for the question and permission to answer it here in a blog post.


I am trying to build a home based business but seem to be getting nowhere.  No matter what I do, I can’t seem to get ahead.  Everyone says the economy is too bad and no one is spending money right now.  Do you think that’s what the problem is?  If so, what can I do about it?


CJ, In order to help you, I need a little more information.  I don’t think the economy is THAT bad.  People are spending money on things they WANT.  There are a lot of businesses thriving right now.  Please answer the following questions for me.

1.  What steps are you taking on a daily basis to build your business?

2.  How many hours per day do you spend on your business?

3.  Is this business your only source of income or do you have a J.O.B. as well?

4.  What is your goal with your business?  Specifically, how much money do you want to be making a year from now and what do you have to do to achieve that?


1.  I am online most of the day talking to people.

2.  I spend 5 to 6 hours per day while my kids are in school on my business.

3.  I do not have a J.O.B.   My husband works and I am a stay at home mom to 2 school age children.  I am hoping to bring extra income into the house so we can give our children a better life.

4.  In a year I would like to be making $10,ooo per month.  In order to do that, between everyone I talk to and everyone they talk to and so on, I need to help 400 people become regular users of my products.


What steps EXACTLY are you taking during that 5 to 6 hours online per day?  I see that your facebook wall has a lot of Farmville and Frontierville posts.  It is very easy for us to fool ourselves into thinking we are being productive when we are really doing a lot of non-productive things.

You have the perfect situation.  You have time while the kids are in school to be working on a business.  You say that you talk to people online.  I’m curious how you are doing that.  I took a look at your public profiles on a couple social spaces and see no reference to the fact that you work from home.  Let’s start with that.  Public online profiles should always reflect the fact that you are working your own business.

In order for you to build this group of 400 people, you probably need to personally bring in at least 50 people over the next year.  Some will just be users of the products and some will want to do this as a business.  That means you need to find about 4 people per month to become regular users of your products.  In order for you to find these 4 people per month, you will probably need to actually present your products and business to around 20 people per month.  That’s less than one person per day.  If you make a goal of presenting your products and/or business to just ONE person per day, Monday through Friday, that’s 20 people per month.

I recommend spending 2 hours of FOCUSED time each day doing activities that will cause people to ask you about your business.  I taught a class recently that shows you exactly how to market online and cause people to come to you and ask “What do you do?”.  This is when you show them your business.  Check out the deeply discounted investment on my Social Networking Group Coaching Program.  This will help you to use the social spaces to actually market your business instead of playing games wondering what you should be doing.

Now…what is holding YOU back? 

I’m not going to go any further into the email correspondence with CJ.  I think you get the picture.  Many of us waste a lot of time each day.  We sit and wonder what to do and end up doing things like playing games or watching videos or just surfing the net.  Why not invest a few hours into learning the PROPER way to talk to people online so you can use your time more effectively?

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.  What will you do with it?
