Redefining Wealth with Patrice Washington
The Six Pillars of Wealth - Part 1

The Six Pillars of Wealth - Part 1

January 21, 2021

Before we step fully into redefining wealth, I believe it’s important that we review the six pillars of wealth. While many of you have heard me talk about the six pillars and expressed your excitement and understanding, others have sent me personal messages and emails in search of clarity and practical action steps to activate each pillar. If you’re not familiar, the six pillars of wealth are Fit, People, Faith, Space, Work and Money.

In last week’s episode, I shared my personal story and we tackled the truth about wealth. I also challenged you to write down a goal in each pillar that you’d like to obtain this year. This week we’ll be discussing the Fit & People pillars as well as action steps you can take today to better yourself and strengthen your relationships.

Key discussion points include:

  • 05:34 - Become Your Best Self
  • 08:41 - Commit To Your Own Process
  • 16:32 - Create Your Personal Mantra
  • 24:03 - Enforce Strong Boundaries
  • 29:27 - Articulate The Vision & Enroll Others

I want you to finally get what it is you say you want and build an awareness around who you need to become in order to take the next best step. Whether you are a seasoned or new Purpose Chaser, my mission over the next few weeks is to unpack each pillar, help you gain further clarity surrounding your purpose, and provide you with the tools needed to achieve tangible results.

The Truth About Wealth

The Truth About Wealth

January 14, 2021

If you consider yourself a Purpose Chaser, then you know that every year we start the year off with a series called “Results, Not Resolutions”.

Around this time of year we hear many people sharing their New Year Resolutions and too often we make resolutions that we either don’t really want or we want, but don’t know how to actually achieve it in order to get results. I’m committed to helping you reach a sense of clarity and awareness of who you are, what you want, and who you need to become in the process, so that you take practical steps to reach your actual goals.

The truth about wealth is when we don’t define it for ourselves, others will define it for us. In this community, we are on a mission to redefine wealth and we believe that wealth is more than money and material possessions. We believe in the 12th century definition of wealth, which is the condition of well-being or happiness and we use the six pillars of wealth as guiding points to help us take practical steps toward attaining the wealth we desire. The six pillars are:

  • Fit: Becoming your best self
  • People: Taking care of relationships that matter
  • Space: Setting up your life to support you
  • Faith: Believing in something greater
  • Work: Living your life’s purpose
  • Money: Attracting the prosperity you desire

I invite you to join us on this journey and I challenge you to identify one thing you really want in each one of the pillars for 2021. Think about what your life could look like at the end of the month, the quarter and the year, and we will determine the steps to get you there. You were created for purpose, let’s redefine wealth together.

Season of Surprises: A Recap of 2020

Season of Surprises: A Recap of 2020

December 31, 2020

It comes as no surprise that 2020 has been a year of unusual and unexpected surprises. In March of 2020, our lives changed forever because what started as a two week call to quarantine turned into a worldwide pandemic.

From the millions of Americans who lost their jobs, to the millions who gathered in solidarity to address racial and social injustices, 2020 also challenged our health with Covid-19 and led to the isolation and financial downfall of so many families. This year brought surprises that none of us were prepared for, but even in the midst of a season of surprises, we still have a responsibility to show up for ourselves, for the people we’re called to serve, and for our purpose.

In any season, we need to have a strong foundation in order to build and sustain the wealth that we desire. Pandemic aside, our purpose is not postponed. We are each called to do something and our calling doesn’t quit because of unexpected events. We have to be ready to rise to the occasion at every moment and 2020 was proof that greatness requires resistance. When faced with resistance we develop the tenacity to persevere, to work harder, to think outside of the box, to help each other, and to grow into the purpose chaser we are created to be.

When I look back over this year, I’m surprised not just by Covid-19 or social unrest, I am surprised by who I have become in the process. I am surprised by the deeper level of clarity I have gained, how I unintentionally figured out who I wanted to serve, and how I’ve come to understand what I do and do not want for my life.

As we wrap up this year and move into 2021, I want you reflect on these 3 questions:

  1. What did 2020 come to teach you?
  2. What did 2020 come to show you?
  3. What did 2020 come to share with you?

Allow your answers to these questions to teach you a lesson and try turning your surprises into strengths. It’s time to ascend to new levels in 2021. Get ready, remain in alignment, seek wisdom, chase purpose and join me in the new year as we continue to redefine wealth.

Ebony Omede + Sherry Balogun: No Small Talk

Ebony Omede + Sherry Balogun: No Small Talk

December 24, 2020

Do you enjoy alone time and do your best thinking alone? Have you ever been told you’re too intense? How about networking, do you feel like you’re faking it when you have to network?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions then you may be an introvert. In my work with Purpose to Platform, I’ve heard so many women consider themselves introverts. They usually admit to not being comfortable on camera, or speaking up in coaching sessions, or even stepping outside of their comfort zone to pursue their purpose. But the amazing thing about introversion is that it doesn’t have to prevent your success or your ability to chase your purpose.

After listening to a podcast called “No Small Talk”, I finally realized that I am indeed an introvert. In this episode I wanted to bring in the hosts to discuss how you can be a thriving introvert in an extrovert driven industry.

Ebony Omede and Sherry Balogun are the dynamic hosts of the “No Small Talk” Podcast - a lively space for introverts looking to build connections and level up in their personal and professional lives. Through conversation starters, interviews and discussions, they help introverts connect with others naturally and confidently without the small talk.

Key discussion points from this episode include:

 

  • Creating The “No Small Talk” Podcast - 06:20
  • The Truth About Networking Events For Introverts - 10:08
  • How To Answer The Question: “What Do You Do?” - 14:47
  • How To Know If You’re An Introvert or Extrovert? - 18:46
  • Signs You’re An Introvert - 29:26
  • Parenting, Marriage, & Dating As An Introvert - 35:57
  • Prominent Leaders Who Identify As Introverts - 49:10

This episode is brought to you by Created For Purpose. This 5-day challenge is designed to help you get unstuck and transform your gift into a purposeful resource in the marketplace. Join us on December 7th and learn how to prevail online and thrive in turbulent times. To sign up visit patricewashington.com/challenge.

 

No Small Talk Takeaways

  • “I don’t just want to have very surface level conversations” - Patrice Washington
  • “I have gone to networking events and felt exhausted by it all.” - Ebony Omede
  • “I don’t define myself just by what I do.” - Patrice Washington
  • “A lot of times there’s a misconception or myth that introverts have a bad attitude or are rude, but it's just that we don’t have time for small talk or want to build deeper connections.” - Ebony Omede
  • “Introverts don't hate small talk because we dislike people, we hate small talk because it puts up barriers between people.” - Sherry Balogun
  • “The connections that I build with people have to be more than surface level.” - Ebony Omede
  • “It’s not that I couldn’t network. I networked, but I didn’t enjoy the process.” - Sherry Balogun
  • “A misconception about introversion versus extroversion is that introverts draw energy from spending alone time and recharging, while extroverts draw their energy from spending time with other people.” - Ebony Omede
  • “The reason that I’m able to do what I do is because I spend more time by myself.” - Patrice Washington
  • “Introverts are truly curious and interested about people and their reactions.” - Sherry Balogun
  • “I don’t feel like I need people around me to enjoy my time. I can enjoy my time being by myself.” - Patrice Washington
  • “The only way people can respect you as an introvert is by communicating it to people and setting boundaries.” - Sherry Balogun

Scale Your Joy

Scale Your Joy

December 17, 2020

What if you woke up and realized that you had been striving for weeks, months, and even decades to create a life that you didn’t even want? What would you do? How would you feel?

I want to challenge you to think about what you really value.

For some of us, this year was an opportunity to clean house and remove the many distractions that kept us from pursuing purpose. For others, this year helped us realize that we can find peace and joy with the things and gifts that we already have.

You and I have not only survived 2020, but together we redefined wealth, success, and happiness. This past year has taught all of us so much more about what really matters to self and I want to invite you to not just look toward 2021 in expectancy, but create what you say you want for yourself.

Do you need to set more boundaries or remove relationships that deplete you? Do you need to scale back and downsize to give you more space and clarity? What do you really value? In this episode, I want to help you reevaluate what you value and figure out what truly brings you joy.

Key discussion points include:

  1. The Blessing Of Downsizing - 05:31
  2. What Do You Want For Your Life? - 13:59
  3. What Brings You The Most Joy? - 18:06

I believe my part in your life is to shift and help transform you to truly pursue your God-given purpose and only do things that are in alignment with who you are and what you’ve been called to do.

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 12-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer. You'll have accountability and support in a dynamic community so you can finally make progress and be ready before you even need to pull that trigger on what's no longer serving you.

We’re wrapping up the Created for Purpose challenge this week in the Redefining Wealth Facebook Group and while over 3,000 women joined in to learn how to show up authentically in the marketplace, I’ve recognized a common theme holding many back: Imposter Syndrome.  

It’s that feeling that even though you are well equipped, you are still some how not worthy enough to have a seat at the table and sit there in peace.

For some of us, it manifests itself by not pursuing opportunities we are beyond qualified for. For others like me, it may show up as overworking and over preparing to prove that you do, in fact, belong.

If these ideas mildly resonate with you, you are in for a breakthrough with this episode because I’ve brought in a woman who is brilliant in helping women overcome imposter syndrome.

Dr. Angela Anderson is the US Head of Diversity and Inclusion, Strategy and Operations at Novartis Pharmaceutical Corporation, as well as, internationally certified as an executive coach, master speaker and trainer. She specializes in providing training around the world on topics such as leadership, influence, motivation, culture, communication, conflict resolution, team dynamics, and much more. She co-hosts the podcast, Just Be Real Sis, established to have real conversations on issues that have historically been difficult to discuss. To learn more: https://www.drangelaspeaks.com/

Key discussion points from this episode include:

  • How Faith Contributes to Downplaying Accomplishments- 10:50
  • Be Aware of Your Thoughts - 14:24
  • Seeds of Doubt Planted by Others – 18:04
  • Why You Need Other Women – 20:06
  • Use Failures as a Lesson – Not Character Flaw – 23:46
  • Sloppy Progress – 25:31
  • What We Can Learn From Sports Stats – 28:02
  • Solidify Your Support Circle – 30:40
  • Stop Putting People In Position of Prominence Prematurely – 33:54

REWIND: Gratitude, Giving + Genuine Abundance

REWIND: Gratitude, Giving + Genuine Abundance

November 26, 2020

This year has shown us that with all of the negativity in the world, we have to fight to maintain an attitude of gratitude. Many of us understand the strong connection between wealth, gratitude and giving, but for those who don’t know, the concept is simple: the more you give, the more you receive.

This is why I believe we all need to focus on giving in this season because giving activates abundance. Our attitude toward gratitude and giving will determine whether we will reach the abundance we desire and it will show us whether or not we’re mentally and spiritually prepared to maintain it.

In this rewind episode, although recorded three years ago, the message resonates with our current state in 2020. After re-listening to this episode and checking myself, I believe it serves as a gentle reminder to extend grace to both ourselves and others, to fight for our gratitude when times seem tough and to move through this world as great, grateful and cheerful givers.

Key discussion points from this episode include:

  • How Gratitude & Giving Connect To Abundance - 7:35
  • Check Your Spirit Of Gratitude - 14:40
  • Becoming A Cheerful Giver - 19:13

This episode is brought to you by Created For Purpose. This 5-day challenge is designed to help you get unstuck and transform your gift into a purposeful resource in the marketplace. Join us on December 7th and learn how to prevail online and thrive in turbulent times. To sign up visit patricewashington.com/challenge.

Dr. Vernell Deslonde: From Pain to Purpose

November 20, 2020

This is the final day of our week-long celebration of National Entrepreneurship Day and I am blown away by the awesome women in the Purpose 2 Platform program. You’ve heard so many amazing stories so far and today’s guest is one whose testimony will blow you away. Many purpose chasers have a story of triumph and challenge that brought them pain, but Dr. Vernell Deslonde is a woman who knew exactly how to take her pain and turn it into purpose.

Dr. Vernell is a passionate, purpose-driven woman of God who understands first-hand what it means to be a single mother after experiencing an unwanted and unexpected divorce and the added pressure of having more than 1.1 million dollars of debt with zero assets and negative net worth. Dr. Vernell is a published author of several academic journal publications, and a sought-after speaker, writer, and clarity coach. 

In her book, From Pain to Purpose, Dr. Vernell shares her story of transformation, self-discovery, self-realization, resiliency, and discovering her God-led purpose as she battled with emotional turmoil, limiting beliefs, financial difficulties, and in the end, an abundance of joy.  From Pain to Purpose is about revelation, reclamation, and how God used her painful divorce to propel her towards becoming her best version.

Key discussion points from this episode include:

  • Finding Courage & Confidence - 8:00
  • How To Stop Hiding Behind The Curtain - 10:03
  • How Vernell Took Her Pain From Purpose To Platform - 11:30
  • Why We Pretend & Hide - 16:00
  • A Daughter’s Perspective Of Overcoming Pain - 20:54
