REWIND: The Power of No Comparison

December 6, 2018
00:0000:00

This is a Redefining Wealth Rewind to one of my favorite solo episodes, The Power of No Comparison. We are in the throes of recording some amazing interviews for the Results Not Resolutions Series coming up at the top of the year. In 2019, we are getting results. But now, it’s time to focus on what matter to us and stop comparing ourselves to other people who may have completely different stories.

CLIFF NOTES

  • It’s not fair to yourself to compare your life to someone else when you don’t know their fitness level or where they are at in their lives.
  • The only thing that matters is becoming better than YOU were before.
  • When you are focused on your goals and your vision, you are more committed.
  • Your goals can’t be based on other people, they need to be about what feels good to you and works for you.
  • You are more complete when you are not in comparison. Be in alignment with what feels good to you.

Quotes from the show:

“The truth is there is no comparison, because we should only be competing with who we were yesterday.” - Patrice Washington

“When we start comparing ourselves to other people, we start self-sabotaging.” - Patrice Washington

“The story I was telling myself kept me from being my best possible self.” - Patrice Washington

“I am better than I was a week ago. I'm better than I was several months ago. I am better than I've been in 20 years. That's the only thing that matters to me. That's the power of no comparison.” - Patrice Washington

"You have to be committed to your own process. When you're in comparison with other people, you are going to skip some steps that you're not ready for.” - Patrice Washington

REWIND: Sheri Riley: The Value of Being Present

November 29, 2018
00:0000:00

Sheri Riley is an empowerment speaker, life strategist, and award-winning author of Exponential Living: Stop Spending 100% of Your Time on 10% of Who You Are. She helps individuals make choices that lead to more fulfilling lives. She has worked with some of the world’s biggest celebrities and corporations. She has spoken at Turner Sports, Prudential, and The Coca-Cola Company. She has appeared on the Steve Harvey show, NPR, Huffington Post and more. She has worked with huge celebrities like Usher, TLC, and more. She is also a good friend of mine.

Episode Summary:

We are prepping for the upcoming year, so the team and I thought it would be a great time to have a rewind of some of our very best podcasts. Award-winning author Sheri Riley is here to remind us about the value of being present. Everytime I listen to this interview, it continues to be a blessing for me. If you've heard this podcast before, listen again because you are in a totally different place today than you were when you first listened to it.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Sheri worked so hard on Exponential Living and deserves every award and acknowledgement that she is getting. She just considers it a humbling honor.
  • It was Sheri's mission to get out of living 10% of her life and feeling empty to living 100% of her life and feeling fulfilled.
  • What people we love want the most is our time and our presence. We often get too caught up in making money or meeting our goals.
  • When we just bounce from one thing to another our creativity is stifled. Focusing on one thing at a time increases your creativity.
  • With relationships focus in on what you can do for the other person and build a mutually respectful and beneficial relationship. Relationships and friendships may not be equal but they always need to be reciprocal.

 

Quotes from the show:

“Sometimes I would just call Patrice to hear her voice, because I needed the stability of knowing that someone was there who was authentic and true.” - Sheri Riley

“How could you possibly feel so empty when your life is so full?” - Sheri Riley

“When some really close friends made some decisions that were devastating, I knew I had to write my book and get it out to the world.” - Sheri Riley

“Meeting Sheri Riley has been one of the greatest blessings of my life.” - Patrice Washington

"It makes me so happy to see Sheri Riley walking in the light and getting the recognition that she so deserves.” - Patrice Washington

Art Steele: Estate Planning is for Everyone

November 22, 2018
00:0000:00

Art Steele is a business and intellectual property lawyer for creatives and entrepreneurs. She spent the first years of her legal career helping large corporations with tax law. After an encounter with Oprah Winfrey, she realized that she needed to do work with more purpose and branch out on her own. She started her own law office where she provided affordable, high-quality legal services to entrepreneurs and creatives. She is also the host of the Inksecure podcast and a partner at Creative Genius Law.

Episode Summary:

Today's episode is about estate planning, and there is no better person to have on the show to talk estate planning than the amazing Art Steele. Her passion for estate planning and just helping us be better as a whole is truly inspiring. One of her passions is helping minorities build wealth through estate planning. We talk about discrepancies with minority estate planning, and the importance of home ownership, having life insurance, and passing on a legacy to generations to come.

CLIFF NOTES

  • How it's a myth that personal behavior is one of the biggest things that closes the wealth gap.
  • We need estate planning to leave a legacy for our children, so they don't go through the financial hardships that we went through.
  • The people who really should have life insurance policies are minorities.
  • There are so many benefits to home ownership including appreciation and having a tax write-off.
  • Estate planning is an absolute necessity, and the key to generational wealth is to start now.
  • If you have any intellectual property, you should have a trust that says who is going to manage that property.

 

Quotes from the show:

“The purpose of the Inksecure podcast is to make people feel more secure about the legal process and understand everything that needs to be put in writing.” - Art Steele

“Being given wealth that is passed down from generation to generation is giving a head start.” - Art Steele

“You can't get ahead if you don't pass your money down.” - Art Steele

“Every entrepreneur needs Art Steele's legal expertise and access to the way she communicates.” - Patrice Washington

"When we don't plan, and when we don't look generations ahead, and when we don't take out life insurance policies, we fall behind.” - Art Steele

  • There is a difference between hearing and listening.
  • True power comes from active listening.

  • Everyone is on a financial journey and, in return, everyone’s story deserves to be listened to.
  • Whether it’s about how you felt like you weren’t being heard, how you needed to listen to yourself or a time when you needed to listen to others, that experience likely impacted your purpose, your passions or your financial journey.
