Redefining Wealth with Patrice Washington
Suzette Vearnon: Taking Center Stage

Suzette Vearnon: Taking Center Stage

February 20, 2020

It’s not uncommon for women to be uncertain of what platform they want to build when they come into my Business Accelerator, Purpose to Platform, but that wasn’t Suzette Vearnon’s story at all.

Quickly approaching her 60th birthday, she had a vision of seeing her self on a bigger stage and knew she was called to deliver her soul’s message to the masses, but didn’t know who she could trust with such a large vision. 

Enter Purpose 2 Platform.

On Suzette’s first weekly Q&A call in the group, she learned first-hand the power of community and what genuine support could like when you aligned yourself with purpose driven women.

Tune in as Suzette recounts her experience with Purpose to Platform and how she finally walked into the spotlight of her life. It’s a tear jerker, so get ready!

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-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.

Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you even need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.

Faith Joyner: For Love Only

Faith Joyner: For Love Only

February 18, 2020

Faith Joyner had experienced coach hurt like many emerging entrepreneurs out there who were hoping to learn the how-to strategies of a successful biz owner. Instead she found that some of the people she admired didn’t have real businesses and were using faith as the veil to cover up greed in their coaching practices. When Faith joined Purpose to Platform, she knew she had found a purpose-first community.

Since then, Faith has experienced incredible results. She’s re-branded her own podcast – For Love Only – and built a deeper connection with a now thriving audience of women she knows 100% she was called to serve. She’s refined the method for how she serves women dealing with the trauma of relationship betrayal and has even raised her prices so that she can actually pay a team to support her holistic retreats and still have money left over to finally pay herself! 

Join us as Faith shares her experience with Purpose to Platform and her biggest takeaways and most radical outcomes since enrolling.

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-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 so you can increase impact, influence and income with integrity!

Linda Murray Bullard: From Layoff to Legacy

Linda Murray Bullard: From Layoff to Legacy

February 18, 2020

Linda Murray Bullard experienced not one layoff, but two layoffs in the last year. The first time around her six-figure salary was snatched from under her and she had no additional income streams to rely on. But the second time which was just several months ago in 2019, she was a member of my business accelerator, Purpose to Platform, and this time she knew she would be all right. 

Linda started her business, LSMB Solutions six year ago. She was well known in her hometown of Chattanooga, TN and was busy doing all the things she thought were necessary to be successful in business, but she didn’t have a blueprint. Since joining Purpose 2 Platform, Linda has repurposed her content in a way that serves her clients more powerfully, revamped her pricing to go from charging by the hour to charging for results and she’s refreshed what it means to be “The Business Plug.”

Join us as Linda shares her experience with Purpose to Platform and her greatest takeaways and incredible experiences since enrolling.

Brittany Sherell: The Fulfillment Factor

Brittany Sherell: The Fulfillment Factor

February 17, 2020

When Brittany joined my Business Accelerator, Purpose to Platform, she came into it with the idea that she was going to build a business. There’s nothing wrong with that idea, but as Brittany says, “Purpose to Platform is a program that takes you from having a one-track business mind into developing a full platform. It transformed how I thought about building a business.”

Since then, Brittany has achieved so much. She’s launched her own podcast – The Brittany Sherell Podcast – that’s about helping women learn to be okay with prioritizing themselves. She’s been featured as a thought leader in ten different publications, has been featured on podcasts, has taught webinars for international organizations, has completed a coaching certification to become a happiness coach and has published her first book, The Fulfillment Factor.

Join us as Brittany shares her experience with Purpose to Platform and her biggest takeaways and results since enrolling.

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-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.

The Fulfillment Factor Takeaways

  • We’re conditioned to chase success and then oftentimes we find out that satisfaction does not live there. – Brittany Sherell
  • One of the most powerful things I’ve gained is understanding that there’s power in having a network. – Brittany Sherell
  • Sometimes other people’s freedom is attached to your fruit. – Brittany Sherell
  • You have to be willing to move beyond fear and move into the unknown and embrace it because it’s bigger than you. – Brittany Sherell
  • I’m committed to being my best self so that I’m always pouring from a place of abundance into other people’s lives. – Brittany Sherell
  • Execute and then evolve. – Brittany Sherell

Are you on the fence about Purpose to Platform? As Brittany says, “You don’t know how much time you have left on Earth, so you need to make the most of it. Do not second guess this.

Too many times, we consider things or look things over and come up with an excuse to talk ourselves out of something. You execute and then you evolve. You don’t sit there and come up with a million reasons why you should be doing something else.”

Love Looks Like Support

Love Looks Like Support

February 13, 2020

Have you ever noticed how many people use Valentine’s Day and the gifts they receive as an indicator for how much their spouse or significant other loves them?

They’ll post pictures of all their gifts on Facebook and Instagram and say things like, “Look at how much so-and-so loves me!” But is this love? I ask because I’m not so sure it is. 

See, for many of those women, sure they’ll get the candy and flowers, but when it comes time for them to invest in themselves, their spouse or significant other will usually say, “We can’t afford it,” or worse “I don’t want you to.” And to me, that’s not love.

Love is about support, and on today’s episode, I’ve invited the husbands of three Purpose 2 Platform students to share how and why they support their wives, and how this support has made their marriages stronger.

Join us as we shift from conventional Valentine’s Day speak and zero-in on how love looks like when you’re supportive, not demonstrative.

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-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.

Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you even need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.

When Love Looks Like Support Takeaways

  • We typically think coaching is for sports, but really anyone who wants to achieve something should seek some type of coaching. – John Norris
  • When you’ve a shared goal as a couple, you need to let each other explore different avenues of accomplishing that goal. – Dr. Jameson Mercier
  • For a lot of people, business ideas come out of desperation and desperation cannot sustain a business. – Dr. Jameson Mercier
  • When I was starting out, there were many times when I had to borrow Gerald’s faith, and for me, I’d much rather have that than flowers. – Patrice Washington
  • You don’t mitigate the risks by NOT following your dreams – it’s still risky whether you do or don’t do it. – Dr. Jameson Mercier
  • We’re on the same team. So if your spouse makes money, you make money, too. – Jamal Joyner

What does love look like to you? Is it roses and candy or is it the support of your spouse or significant other? I’ve met a lot of women who want to take their lives and careers to the next level, but don’t have the support they need from their spouse to get there. 

If that’s where you are, follow Dr. Jameson Mercier’s advice. Be honest and speak to your spouse about what you need. And, of course, Happy Valentine’s Day.

Dr. George Fraser: Connecting the Dots

Dr. George Fraser: Connecting the Dots

February 6, 2020

Have you ever heard the phrase, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with,” or “The quickest way to change yourself is to hang out with people who are already where you want to be?” These phrases are fairly common in the business world, especially when you get into networking and learning how to build a network.

Today, Dr. George Fraser, author, entrepreneur and speaker talks about how to improve your network (and why you should), the importance of building wealth and leaving a legacy and the need for an economic shift in African culture.

Dr. Fraser has written several critically-acclaimed books: Success Runs in Our Race: The Complete Guide to Effective Networking in the African American Community, Race for Success: The Ten Best Business Opportunities for Blacks In America and Click: Ten Truths for Building Extraordinary Relationships

He is also the founder of the annual PowerNetworking Conference, and founder and CEO of FraserNet, Inc., a global leadership network of 91,000 Black professionals, business owners and community leaders.

Join us as we cover everything from business basics to global economics, and be prepared because Dr. Fraser holds nothing back.

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.

Dr. George Fraser Takeaways

  • If you want to change your life, change your relationships. – Dr. Fraser
  • Don’t spend major time with minor people. People who are going nowhere want you to go nowhere with them. – Dr. Fraser
  • If you are not where you want to be in life, it’s because you don’t have the right people in your life. – Dr. Fraser
  • It doesn’t matter how smart you are; whatever you’re going to get done in life, you’re going to get done with and through other people. – Dr. Fraser
  • I’d rather carry a plastic bag with $5,000 in it than carry a $5,000 Louis Vuitton bag with a $100 in it. – Dr. Fraser
  • If you’re driving a Land Rover, but you still have a landlord, you’re ignorant. – Dr. Fraser
  • “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s child.” – Proverbs 13:22

Jordan Raynor: Master of One

Jordan Raynor: Master of One

January 30, 2020

Have you ever wondered, “How do I find my purpose? How do I narrow down the things I’m good at and find the one thing that’s my true gift?” At Redefining Wealth, we’re all about chasing purpose, not money. In fact it’s our tagline.

But struggling to find your purpose is indeed a major problem for most people, and when you don’t know what your purpose is, you end up going in a bunch of different directions and never fully committing to any of them.

In today’s episode, I invited Jordan Raynor, author of Master of One, to share his story and what he’s learned about the process of narrowing down multiple passions to focus on true mastery and how excellence comes from that initial step of finding and cultivating your purpose. 

As we dive in, Jordan talks about how he was always the “Jack of all trades, and master of none,” and how he had to shift his thinking so he didn’t end up living in mediocrity – in the “master of none” space. Join us as we discuss how to find your purpose, how to pivot your purpose as needed and how to embrace excellence and mastery in the thing that you’ve chosen. 

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.

 

Master of One Takeaways

  • Embrace being a “Jack or Jill of all trades,” BUT become a master of one. – Jordan Raynor
  • To become truly masterful, you need to develop a lifelong discipline of continually raising the bar and getting better at your craft. – Jordan Raynor
  • Passion is a side effect of mastery. – Jordan Raynor
  • Plan on putting in 10,000 hours of purposeful practice to get world-class at anything. – Jordan Raynor
  • You can do a million things one time and be upset by the results, or you can choose to do fewer things a million times and master them. – Patrice Washington
  • Most people make a millimeter of progress in a million different directions – that’s not mastery. – Jordan Raynor
  • Purpose evolves and requires you to take everything you’ve learned and use it to serve and support you in the next season. – Patrice Washington
  • You cannot do your most excellent work if you’re scattered and unfocused. – Jordan Raynor

Are you a “Jack or Jill of all trades and master of none?” Are you struggling to find work you can do exceptionally well? Are you getting caught up in the discipline and practice of mastery? Wherever you are, Master of One can help. Grab your copy of Master of One HERE.

 

Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions

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

“Abundance.”

One Book that Has Redefined How You See Wealth:

The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn

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

“My name is Jordan Raynor and the truth about wealth is that I did not generate it. Wealth and honor come from God alone and I’m just a steward of it.”

Princeton Parker: Can’t Protect from Process

Princeton Parker: Can’t Protect from Process

January 23, 2020

Have you ever thought, “If I were a different version of myself – thinner, richer, more successful – then I would have a fairer shot at life”?

Truth is: Many of us do. Sadly, it’s not a story that’s unfamiliar to us.

Princeton Parker points out in today’s episode, the story of the Prodigal Son. The son who does not just leave his home, but he leaves a version of himself in pursuit of a different version of himself only to discover that there was nothing wrong with who he was before he left home. 

He has to lose everything he thought he wanted in order to realize he needed none of it.

Join us as we unpack the story of the Prodigal Son, bringing emotional health and psychology into the mix, while looking at those things through the lens of the prodigal son’s father.

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.

 

Can’t Protect from Process Takeaways

  • Growing up and maturing isn’t about becoming someone different; it’s about realizing there was nothing wrong with you in the first place. – Princeton Parker
  • Reclaim the identity you gave up in search of what you felt like you needed to be. – Princeton Parker
  • We think we know what inheritance means because we’re able to see reward without responsibility and promise without purpose. – Princeton Parker
  • If I loved myself, I would know that I was enough. – Princeton Parker
  • I can’t “okay” you leaving until I “okay” the life that I have without you. – Princeton Parker
  • The hardest thing to break up with are our own expectations. – Princeton Parker
  • The same faith that gives you the strength to hold on should be the same faith that gives you the strength to let go. – Princeton Parker

When we release someone from our lives– a child, a partner, an employee – we have to trust in that decision and in that process. Like the prodigal son’s father letting him go, the father had to trust and accept his son would experience more than he could give him through words alone.

 

Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions

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

Define Success:

“Success is authenticity plus service.”

Define Wealth in 3 Words or Less:

“Purpose, relationships, love.”

One Book that Has Redefined How You See Wealth:

The Emotional Incest Syndrome: What to do When a Parent’s Love Rules Your Life by Patricia Love

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

“My name is Princeton and the truth about wealth is that it starts on the inside and it overflows to the outside.”

Tanisha Lyons-Porter: Functional Over Fictional

Tanisha Lyons-Porter: Functional Over Fictional

January 16, 2020

Where do you rank on the organized-disorganized spectrum? Many of us rank somewhere in the middle – not completely disorganized, but not 100% organized either. That’s why so many people set New Year’s resolutions to declutter their home.

But at Redefining Wealth, we’re not about resolutions, we’re about results, and that’s why I’ve invited Tanisha Lyons Porter to join us today. Tanisha is a professional organizer and has been organizing spaces since she was a child. In addition to working one-on-one with clients, Tanisha teaches several organizing workshops across Southern California, and her signature event – Sort n Sip with Tanisha Porter – is a hands-on organizing workshop that erases the dread of decluttering with food, fun and socializing.

So, if you’re trying to declutter this new year but you’re overwhelmed, this is an episode you don’t want to miss. Inside, we’re covering everything from practical steps for decluttering and making it a consistent habit to what the difference is between organizing a space versus cleaning a space.

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

 

Natural Born Organizer Takeaways

  • Clutter is the physical manifestation of chaos in your mind. – Patrice Washington
  • Organization is not about perfection, it’s about finding systems and methods that line up with how you and your family operate. – Tanisha Lyons Porter
  • Being organized is about being able to find what you need, when you need it – it’s not about being Pinterest perfect. – Tanisha Lyons Porter
  • The average American spends 76 hours a year looking for things they already own but can never find. – Patrice Washington
  • When it comes to getting rid of clutter, create a consistent routine rather than an organizing event or marathon. – Tanisha Lyons Porter
  • Keeping clothes in your closet that don’t fit is like keeping mean girlfriends around because you don’t like to be alone. – Tanisha Lyons Porter

Do you have any decluttering tips of your own? Share them with us!  

 

Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions

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

Define Success:

“Freedom of choice, freedom of movement, freedom in our minds.”

Define Wealth in 3 Words or Less:

“Freedom in choice.”

One Book that Has Redefined How You See Wealth:

Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

Tonya Dalton: The Joy of Missing Out

Tonya Dalton: The Joy of Missing Out

January 9, 2020

Are you the type of person who goes to bed thinking, “I didn’t do enough today,” “I didn’t accomplish all the things I had on my to-do list and I feel awful about it”? Too often, this is how we end our day, and it’s how we wake up the next day.

But here’s the thing, feeling bad about yourself for not being as productive as you wanted to be doesn’t serve you. And it certainly isn’t going to boost your productivity because who’s going to be more productive when they feel like they’ve been bad? 

In today’s episode, I sit down with Tonya Dalton, author of The Joy of Missing Out and founder of inkWELL Press Productivity Co., a company centered around productivity tools and training, to dive further into this topic of to-do lists and priorities and how most of the things we check off our lists just leave us feeling incomplete and unhappy.

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.

 

The Joy of Missing Out Takeaways

  • So often we think life is meant to be endured, when truly it’s meant to be enjoyed. – Tonya Dalton
  • We’re so busy chasing busy that we don’t give ourselves a chance to inhale so that we can exhale. – Tonya Dalton
  • Give yourself permission to take back your power and choose what actually matters to you. – Patrice Washington
  • We’re so busy people pleasing that we put ourselves at the very bottom of our own people-pleasing list. – Tonya Dalton
  • We can’t shine our light on other people if our batteries always need recharging. – Tonya Dalton
  • Self-care is not about spa days and pedicures; it’s about filling up your soul, not your calendar. – Tonya Dalton
  • Quiet your soul – only then will you be able to see where God is pulling you. – Tonya Dalton

When it comes to living that go-go-go lifestyle, it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of it and think that productivity should outweigh our happiness. But that’s just not true – your happiness is more important than checking off a bunch of meaningless tasks.

So I invite you to think about how you’re living each day. Are you checking off tasks that are truly important to you or are you checking off tasks and creating lists that are meaningless to your purpose?

 

Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions 

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

Define Success:

“Living a life that’s true to my message.”

Define Wealth in 3 Words or Less:

“Time with family.” 

One Book that Has Redefined How You See Wealth:

Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey

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

“My name is Tonya Dalton and the truth about wealth really is about how you spend your time more than anything else.”
