Redefining Wealth with Patrice Washington
Chrystal Evans Hurst: Conversations With God

Chrystal Evans Hurst: Conversations With God

September 17, 2020

Here in the Redefining Wealth community, we have what I like to call the six pillars of wealth. Each pillar is designed to help us achieve our definition of wealth, which is overall well-being, as we continue to chase purpose. Right now, you have caught us in the middle of our Faith Pillar series entitled “Faith Works”.

In this 3-part series, I’m tapping into connecting with guests and resources that can help us strengthen our faith. One of the greatest resources is prayer and on last week's episode of the podcast, I shared my prayer for you in alignment with our six pillars of wealth. This week, I bring you a guest who knows a thing or two about having “Conversations With God”.

 

Chrystal Evans Hurst is a speaker, worship leader, and author of her bestselling book:The 28-Day Prayer Journey: A Daily Guide To Conversations With God.

In this episode, Chrystal and I dive into the power of having a relationship with God, the need for gratitude, and the importance of repentance. She also shares what she believes is the most unused tool for evangelism - Prayer.

She says, “You don’t have to find time, you make time to have conversations with God.”

This episode is brought to you by Command the Stage, an Intimate Training Created for the Next Generation of Transformational Speakers Who Desire to Confidently Communicate the Message they’ve Been Called to Share with the Masses.

Anniversary Episode: My Prayer For You

Anniversary Episode: My Prayer For You

September 10, 2020

Today we celebrate three amazing years here at Redefining Wealth! We launched this podcast on September 14, 2017, and now, 165 episodes later, we continue in our mission to teach this generation that wealth is not merely about money or material possessions, but that wealth is truly the condition of well-being.

Three years ago, I had no idea we would be where we are today and I am so grateful and humbled that you have chosen to join me on this purpose chasing journey. My word for this year has been obedience, and I accept that with influence comes responsibility. So, while I was contemplating my plans to celebrate this anniversary episode, I felt God leading me to pray for Purpose Chasers.

I consider myself to be spirit-led and I know that any measure of success that you believe I have has come from my prayer life. My confidence, discipline, and the clarity that I share is not out of my own strength, but the time that I commit to prayer. I pray for you all of the time, but today you will audibly hear me do it, as this anniversary episode is dedicated to you.

Whether you are a believer or not, I ask that you open your heart and mind to accept the words I have to share with you in prayer. I pray that you can receive my heart and that you understand the gratitude I have for you joining me this far.

Trent Shelton: Running From Reality

Trent Shelton: Running From Reality

September 3, 2020

It’s our Anniversary Eve episode! Next week will be our three year anniversary here at Redefining Wealth, which means we are celebrating three years of teaching you that wealth is so much more than money and material possessions.

Here in this community, we believe in the original definition of wealth – the condition of well being. In order for us to achieve overall well-being, we first need to acknowledge our current reality and stop suppressing past shame and pain. A man who does this well is Trent Shelton, a father, transformational speaker and former NFL wide receiver.

He is the poster child for turning pain into purpose and he is truly living a genuine and authentic life. He says, “it’s time to stop running from reality”. Sharing with us his devastating journey in the NFL, Trent teaches us how to tackle our trials and stop suppression from leading to depression.

When we pursue purpose, sometimes our plans are not God’s plans. This is exactly what Trent discovered as God led him away from what he thought was his purpose (football), into what God truly had planned for him (speaking). For this reason, Trent believes “purpose is the wealthiest thing we can have”, and it’s no coincidence that our motto here at Redefining Wealth is to “chase purpose, not money”.

Learning this lesson early on changed my life and I invite you to join us as we go further into this conversation and closer to our ideal lifestyle of wealth and well being. I believe Trent Shelton is one of the most prolific inspirational speakers of our time and I can’t wait for you to hear what he shares in today’s episode.

This episode is brought to you by Command the Stage, A 2-Day Intimate Training Created for the Next Generation of Transformational Speakers Who Desire to Confidently Communicate the Message they’ve Been Called to Share with the Masses.

Running From Reality Takeaways

  • “When I speak I want to make my words matter.” - Trent Shelton
  • “When the purpose is big enough, the struggle or any fear will never be great enough.” - Trent Shelton
  • “I have a purpose greater than the pain I experienced.” - Trent Shelton
  • “Oftentimes, our plans have to fail so God’s purpose in our life can prevail.” - Trent Shelton
  • “Never let people place their impossibilities on your life.” - Trent Shelton
  • “Faith isn’t believing because you see it, it’s believing it because you know God has called you to do it.” - Trent Shelton
  • “Never feel guilty for cutting someone off when they handed you the scissors.” - Trent Shelton
  • “I don’t ever want to be a public success and private failure.” - Patrice Washington
  • “True wealth is not just in your bank account, but it’s also in your talents and your gifts and your wisdom that you leave here.” - Trent Shelton
  • “Purpose is the wealthiest thing we can have.” - Trent Shelton

Kayo Johnson: Make Your Voice Count

Kayo Johnson: Make Your Voice Count

August 27, 2020

Let me ask you something a bit personal … Have you received your census questionnaire in the mail and have you completed it? Or are you like so many others who received their questionnaire and tossed it in the trash – along with all the reminders?

You see, when it comes to the census, many of us don’t think it’s important or we think it’s the government’s way of trying to invade our privacy, so we simply don’t complete it. Either that or we have the best of intentions to complete it, but can’t find the time to sit down and do it.

After sitting down with my friend Kayo Johnson – the Census Guy – I can tell you that any reason you have for not completing the census is wrong.

Here’s a reality check … There’s no information asked about immigration or citizenship. They don’t ask for your social security number or bank information. The census itself is very basic and takes anywhere from five to ten minutes to complete – that’s it.

I’ll be honest though, until I sat down with Kayo, I never truly knew how important the census was. I just did it to get it off my to-do list. But now, I realize how much power it has in determining what funding and programs our communities receive, and that’s huge, especially in underprivileged communities.

Join me as Kayo and I discuss the importance of the census and how it allows us to make sure our voice counts – past, present and future.

 

Make Your Voice Count Takeaways

  • The census isn’t just about funding, it’s about representation, too. – Kayo Johnson
  • It’s our job, our right and our responsibility to take care of our kids, our elders and ourselves – the census does all of these things at the same time. – Kayo Johnson
  • It’s important to see not only the value in our count, but also the value in our number. – Kayo Johnson
  • The census doesn’t only just secure the future for our children, it also ensures that our past is maintained. – Kayo Johnson
  • Imagine what 10 minutes can do for 10 years. How do you not have time to fill it out? – Kayo Johnson

Do you have 10 minutes? Use it to complete the census and shift the next ten years of your life and community. I know you may think, “But I’m just one person or one household, does it really matter?” It does, especially when you think about all the funding opportunities your community could be missing out on.

In the comments below, let us know you’ve completed your census.

 

Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions

And with that, let’s dig into Kayo’s responses to our Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions.

Define Success:

“Knowing that no matter what, I did everything I could to help make my community better, and that I took the step every day to help ensure that.”

Define Wealth in 3 Words or Less:

“Love. Power. Faith.”

One Book that Has Redefined How You See Wealth:

Real Money Answers for Men: The Ultimate Playbook for Financial Success by Patrice Washington

Fill-in the Blanks … “My name is ___ and the truth about wealth is ___”:

“My name is Kayo Johnson and the truth about wealth is love.”

Bob Lotich: The Joy in Generosity

Bob Lotich: The Joy in Generosity

August 20, 2020

Are you stingy when it comes to your money, or do you give it away generously? For most people, when it comes to tithing, they’re more on the stingy side of things.

At least that’s where today’s guest, Bob Lotich was back in the day. Fortunately, though, with the help of his wife, Bob moved from stingy to generous giver, and by age 31, was giving 31% of his income away.

I know what you’re thinking – 31%?! Yes, 31%.

Today, Bob’s a Certified Educator in Personal Finance and writes a personal finance blog on the intersection of money and the Bible - a topic I know many of you will love.

As we sit down to discuss Bob’s personal money story and journey, we also dive into this topic of money and the Bible and also cover some of our favorite budgeting tools. Join us and let’s see where you rank in terms of giving generously.

This episode is brought to you by our complimentary Purpose Chasers community. Want to share your aha moments with a group of like-minded purpose chasers from all over the world? Visit iamapurposechaser.com and join NOW.

 

From Stingy to Generous Giver Takeaways

  • Many of us don’t give to the extent that we could because we don’t realize that we’re already rich. – Patrice Washington
  • Whenever I see God drop a question in front of me, I know that there’s something good on the other side of it. – Bob Lotich
  • We cannot “outgive” God. – Bob Lotich
  • For me, money is more than a math problem – there’s a biblical component to it, as well. – Bob Lotich
  • I don’t just want to have a business to be transacting stuff, I want to make an impact on people’s lives. – Bob Lotich
  • The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. – Mark 2:27
  • Embrace boundaries and give yourself those guardrails to not allow every little distraction to consume you all day long. – Patrice Washington
  • Think about budgeting as a way of designing the life that you want. – Bob Lotich

Are you a generous giver? Do you want to be? What can you do today to stretch yourself into giving more? How can you budget tithing into your finances? Let us know in the comments below.

Lynn Richardson: Paycheck to Monday

Lynn Richardson: Paycheck to Monday

August 13, 2020

Are you one of those people who lives paycheck to paycheck? Or worse, paycheck to Monday, where you get paid on Friday and by Monday it’s already gone?

Do your spending habits cause you to spend more money than you make?

Are you ashamed to show your bank statement to your children?

If you’re answering yes to any of these questions, then today’s episode is one you don’t want to miss.

Before her success as a financial coach, Lynn Richardson – author, entertainment executive and celebrity financial coach – was living the paycheck to Monday routine, even though she was making five to six figures every month. Yes, you heard it right – on a monthly basis Lynn was making what most people make in a year, and she was still broke.

Fortunately, she recognized she had a problem and set out to fix it. As she says, “It didn’t matter how much money I made, which is why you can’t really trade time for money. More money doesn’t solve a money problem. If it did, millionaires and billionaires wouldn’t go bankrupt.”

In today’s episode, Lynn shares more of her personal money story and how it’s gotten her to where she is now. We’re also talking about her new book, Dynasty: A Guide to Building and Creating Generational Wealth, and how she’s working harder than ever to help others face their money issues and achieve personal, professional and spiritual harmony.

This episode is brought to you by our complimentary Purpose Chasers community. Want to share your aha moments with a group of like-minded purpose chasers from all over the world? Visit iamapurposechaser.com and join NOW.

 

Creating Dynasty Takeaways

  • Trading time for money doesn’t work. – Lynn Richardson
  • You can have peace during the storm when you honor the laws of order. – Lynn Richardson
  • People talk about the enemy, but it’s usually the inner-me, and if we can get the inner-me in check, we can keep the enemy off of our backs. – Lynn Richardson
  • If you have a dream, you have to speak what you seek until you see what you say. – Lynn Richardson
  • I can’t coach and coddle. – Patrice Washington
  • God said, “You only want to serve how you want to serve, which means you’re not serving.” – Lynn Richardson
  • Needing nothing is when you actually attract everything. – Lynn Richardson
  • Everybody knows how to spend less money when they have none. That’s not the challenge. The challenge is to have money and learn not to spend it. – Lynn Richardson
  • If you can’t show your child your bank statement, then it’s out of order. – Lynn Richardson
  • If you have more money than you can handle, it no longer has the power that you think. – Lynn Richardson
  • Energy is like money in the bank, once you spend it, it’s gone. – Lynn Richardson

When it comes to money, where are your pitfalls? What can you do better? Could you save more and spend less? Could you charge more for your time? Could you build assets that make money without you having to give up your time and energy?

Let us know in the comments below how you plan to improve your money situation. And remember, if you want to get your money straight, you’ve got to forget what people think – this is about YOU and your money.

 

Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions

And with that, let’s dig into Lynn’s responses to our Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions.

Define Success:

“Peace. Joy. Harmony. I’m not necessarily looking for people to become wealthy, I’m looking for them to have harmony, which means that everything is working together for their good.”

Define Wealth in 3 Words or Less:

“Loving and truthful giving.”

One Book that Has Redefined How You See Wealth:

The Bible

Fill-in the Blanks … “My name is ___ and the truth about wealth is ___”:

“My name is Lynn Richardson and the truth about wealth is that it’s yours for the taking.”

Anthony ONeal: The New American Dream

Anthony ONeal: The New American Dream

August 6, 2020

When it comes to student loans, I bet you either have them, have paid them off or you know somebody who has them. And I’ve got to ask, whatever your experience is with them, do you think that taking on debt to pay for an education is a smart move? Or is there a better way?

According to Anthony ONeal, there is. Anthony, bestselling author of Debt-Free Degree, The Graduate Survival Guide and Destroy Your Student Loan Debt, believes we should be able to go to college, get an education, AND graduate 100% debt free.

As Anthony covers in this episode, the average person graduates college with about $35,000 in student loan debt. Twelve years after they graduate, the average person still owes 65%, and in the African American and minority communities, that number is 113%.

These numbers are shocking and yet they lead to an even bigger question. How can someone pay off a substantial amount of debt like this when they’re struggling already to make ends meet?

Join us as Anthony breaks down the steps you can take now to get a handle on your debt and get it paid off sooner.

This episode is brought to you by our complimentary Purpose Chasers community. Want to share your aha moments with a group of like-minded purpose chasers from all over the world? Visit iamapurposechaser.com and join NOW.

 

Debt-Free Degree Takeaways

  • The American dream for the average graduate is not to start a family or buy a home, it’s to get a job and pay off their student loans. – Anthony ONeal
  • We make mistakes because we lack knowledge – we go into debt for the same reason. – Anthony ONeal
  • When you have a vision of where you want to go in life, the journey becomes a lot easier. – Anthony ONeal
  • You can’t get out of debt if you keep putting yourself into debt. – Anthony ONeal
  • Why is it that young 20-year-olds have a mortgage payment but don’t own any real estate? – Anthony ONeal
  • Everyone should have some form of education. What I’m against is jeopardizing your future FOR education. – Anthony ONeal
  • I didn’t get out of debt so I wouldn’t have to worry about money. I got out of debt so I could live and enjoy life. – Anthony ONeal
  • The caliber of my future will be determined by the choices I make today. – Anthony ONeal
  • My purpose is not to be rich. My purpose is to be a great husband, a great father, a great leader. – Anthony ONeal
  • I have boundaries with my money – it’s called a budget. – Anthony ONeal
  • Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean that you’re broke. – Anthony ONeal
  • A budget gives me the freedom to focus on the things that actually matter to me. – Patrice Washington

With 60% of college graduates not even using their degrees after graduation, do you think spending $100,000+ to get that degree was worth it? If you’re a college grad, we’d love to know: 1) Do you still have student loan debt OR have you paid it off? 2) Are you using your degree? 3) If you could go back in time, would you still go to college?

Let us know in the comments below. And if you’re still struggling with student loan debt, which of the steps Anthony shared are you going to tackle first?

 

Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions

And with that, let’s dig into Anthony’s responses to our Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions.

Define Success:

“Purpose. As long as I’m in my purpose, then I am successful.”

Define Wealth in 3 Words or Less:

“Freedom. Choices. Peace.”

One Book that Has Redefined How You See Wealth:

Everyday Millionaires: How Ordinary People Built Extraordinary Wealth – and How You Can Too by Chris Hogan

Fill-in the Blanks … “My name is ___ and the truth about wealth is ___”:

“My name is Anthony ONeal and the truth about wealth is that wealth is different than being rich. You can be rich and have wealth OR you can be rich and not have wealth.”

Rewind: People Want to Support You

Rewind: People Want to Support You

July 30, 2020

Are you taking “how you show up in the world” for granted, especially when it’s time to get the support you desire?

 

Are you clear on how people can support you?

 

Are you praying for support, but then too prideful to vocalize you need help?

 

Are you allowing your irrational fears to turn you into an irresponsible steward?

 

If you’re nodding your head YES right now, I want you to know this:

 

There are people out there who want to support you, but they don’t understand how to do so.

 

Let’s take me, for example. Whenever people would ask what I needed, I’d respond with a generic answer or entirely turn down the offer of help. Now, that wasn’t because I didn’t need or want support.

 

You see, I was turning people away because I’d never taken the time to sit down and draft how people could support me.

 

Then it hit me … what if God wants to answer our silent prayers, but He’s waiting on us to use our voice and say we need help?

 

And what if our irrational fears are making us irresponsible stewards of the gifts He has blessed us with?

 

That’s profound, right? Well, in today’s episode, I go even deeper as I tackle each of these questions and unpack how I’ve addressed them. I’ll also explore the importance of shifting “how you show up in the world” so you get the support you want and need.

People Want to Support Your Takeaways

  • Don’t block people’s blessings. – Patrice Washington
  • Stop sliding into people’s DMs on Instagram and talking about what you need. Instead, ask how you can support them. – Patrice Washington

Rewind: How to Walk in Expectancy

Rewind: How to Walk in Expectancy

July 23, 2020

Do you know the difference between expectation and expectancy? For many people, these two words are interchangeable.

 

Expectation means you have a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future. This is what we anticipate, what we desire, what we wish for. Expectancy is a feeling something is going to happen – it’s the feeling you have when you’re expecting something.

 

For me, the difference between expectation and expectancy is action, and walking in expectancy is about actively doing something to move forward. It’s the action that then gives God something to bless, because as I’ve said before, God knows what you’re waiting on when he sees what you’re working on.

 

So, for instance, if you say you want to be a New York Times bestselling author but you have yet to sit down and write a word, how do you think that’s going to happen?

 

In today’s episode, we’re going to go further into this idea of walking in expectancy and how you have to actively do something in order to move closer to the thing you desire.

How to Walk in Expectancy Takeaways

  • You can be committed to vision, but not attached to how you get there. – Patrice Washington
  • I came, I conquered, and if you know me, then you know that’s just another story and you will be seeing a lot more from me. – Miss Jamaica, Davina Bennett
  • Sometimes I stop and thank God for the prayers he didn’t answer. – Patrice Washington
  • Walking in expectancy is about trusting that no matter what happens, everything is working together for my good. – Patrice Washington
  • God knows what you’re waiting on when He sees what you’re working on. – Patrice Washington
  • Walking in expectancy means confidently looking for favor at every turn. – Patrice Washington
  • Your journey can’t only be about what you want, it has to also be about who you want to become in the process. – Patrice Washington

For me, I thank God for the many expectations I had that didn’t go as planned because the way I’ve been stretched and the lessons I’ve learned and the people I’ve met have been some of the biggest blessings of my life. 

 

Now, I’d love to hear from you. What expectations have you had that didn’t go as planned and what did you learn from them? Have they helped shape who you are today? And what about expectancy? Are you actively walking in expectancy? Let us know in the comments below.

Rewind: Be Their Walking Contradiction

Rewind: Be Their Walking Contradiction

July 16, 2020

Has the past stopped you from moving forward? Did you do something in your 20s or 30s that you’re now ashamed of? 

For many people, the worry and fear around the thing they’re ashamed of is the reason they never move forward. Think of it like this, you’re afraid to build something because the truth of your past will come out and it could potentially damage you, so you don’t even try.

Then there’s also the risk that other people will start making up parts of your past simply to discredit you and either you’ll begin to believe it yourself or it will feel so unbearable that you’ll stop building the thing you were building.

The thing is, we all have a past. We’ve all done things we're ashamed of and if we’re willing to own them, then nothing, not even the fictions other people spin, can stop us.

In today’s episode, I discuss my own past and the shame and embarrassment I felt when I announced on live television that I’d lost everything in the 2008 recession and was bankrupt. Owning that loss was difficult, but it is a part of my story, and as it turns out, it was necessary for me to go through that experience in order to better help you. Join me as I dive into this and what it means to be the walking contradiction.

Be Their Walking Contradiction Takeaways  

  • Many of us become paralyzed when it’s time to move forward because the shame of our past keeps us stuck where we are. – Patrice Washington
  • Nothing in life has happened to you, it’s happened for you. – Patrice Washington
  • Stop allowing other people to shame you into being quiet, into playing small, into pretending your gifts are insignificant – be their walking contradiction, instead. – Patrice Washington
  • What I love about my faith is that it teaches me the power of a plot twist. – Patrice Washington
  • When you know what is, you don’t have to be distracted or deterred by the what ifs. – Patrice Washington
  • Accept the facts. Your story is your story. What you’ve been through is what you’ve been through and there is nothing you can do to go back and change that. – Patrice Washington
  • Fiction is a belief or statement that is false, but one that is often held to be true because it is expedient to do so. – Patrice Washington
  • I can accept the things that I’ve done – the good, the bad, the ugly – because I’ve learned to embrace these things as things that have happened for me, not to me. – Patrice Washington

Are you ready to become the "walking contradiction"? Are you willing to own your past regardless of what you've done? And are you prepared to put a stop to the fictitious stories that others may spin? Let us know in the comments below.
