Thank you so much for understanding.

Are You Actually Coachable?

September 27, 2018
00:0000:00

The Redefining Wealth Podcast community believes that wealth is about more than money and material possessions; it’s actually about well-being. Each week, award-winning personal finance author, international speaker, media personality and your BFF in your head, Patrice Washington, shares solo insights or enlightening guest interviews that influence the masses to live their life’s purpose, find fulfillment and earn more without chasing money.

In today’s episode, I explore what it means to be coach-able. So often people talk about wanting support, but they aren’t truly open to it.

The reason you don’t accept coaching is fear. You have a story in your head that says, “This is as far as people like me go.” When you don’t do what your coach asks you to do, you’re not disappointing your coach- you’re disappointing yourself.

To get the wealth you desire, you need to be able to try new things and be uncomfortable. You have to be unapologetic about trusting the process.

I like to say, “I know what I know, and it’s brought me as far as I’ve come. If I want to go further, I need help.”

I don’t care where you start, but I do want you to consider getting the support that you need. Find a pillar where you need help, and reach out to a coach who can work with you to get the results you’re looking for.

People Want To Support You

September 20, 2018

The Redefining Wealth Podcast community believes that wealth is about more than money and material possessions; it’s actually about well-being. Each week, award-winning personal finance author, international speaker, media personality and your BFF in your head, Patrice Washington, shares solo insights or enlightening guest interviews that influence the masses to live their life’s purpose, find fulfillment and earn more without chasing money.

In today’s episode, we explore what it means to ask for support.

What if our irrational fears are making us irresponsible stewards of the gifts we’ve been blessed with?

We can’t take the contributions we’re making to our communities for granted.

We have to be bold and ask for what we need. Even if the answer is “no,” at least you asked.

This year, I want to be an example of what it looks like to push past the “what ifs” and stop being selective with my surrender. As I’ve learned in the last few months, people want to help, but we’re the ones making up the stories about what that means about us. It’s not them.

Special Thanks to those listeners who said “YES!” to being Founding Purpose Chasers on my Patreon Page or those who made a one-time donation so I could bless someone else.

One Year Anniversary: The Impact of Redefining Wealth

September 13, 2018
00:0000:00

It’s our anniversary!

What a first year in podcasting it’s been.

It was always my dream to build a community of people who want to become their best selves together. I have that now.

This episode is all about sharing the impact that the podcast has had on you, but I want to make sure you know how it has affected me. I’ve blossomed as a woman, as a mother, and as a wife.

I feel like I have the world’s largest accountability group.

It’s one thing to work through the pillars on your own, and another to be held accountable.

That’s why I asked you to call in and let me know how the pillars have affected your life!

This is not just my anniversary, this is our anniversary.

I hope you enjoy this special anniversary edition of Redefining Wealth.

 

CLIFF NOTES:

  • You can be proud of yourself and still know there is work to be done.
  • You can know what you need to do, but what do your actions show?
  • Choose peace on purpose.
  • Clutter is the physical manifestation of chaos in our mind.
  • There’s someone watching you who has the power to bless you.
  • I don’t think that any of us would be any closer to the wealth we desire without making faith a priority.
  • Strive to be the same person online as you are in person.
  • I now have a patreon! Support at iamapurposechaser.com

 

I’m Not Above Backing Out

September 6, 2018
00:0000:00

So many times we say “yes” knowing that it’s a “no.”

Why do we agree to do things that we don’t want to do?

Most of the time, we’re worried about pleasing others instead of honoring ourselves.

In this episode, I talk about my latest team retreat and how I recommitted to my 2018 goal of simplicity. In order for me to finish the year strong, I have to let go of the stuff that makes me busy but not necessarily profitable.

I realized I can’t be selective with what I’m willing to simplify. I was willing to let go of material possessions, but not willing to let go of opportunities in my career.

If you’ve made commitments that you don’t have the time, resources or head space to complete, you can back out. You can do it with grace and dignity, but first and foremost, you have to do it for yourself.

Download this episode and learn three easy steps to say “NO!” to things that are no longer serving you. Let’s grow together.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Don’t be busy holding on to opportunities that are out of season.
  • You can’t be selective with what you’re willing to simplify
  • Check in with what matters every day.
  • Stop compromising your time, money, and peace to be liked.
  • Detach yourself from the outcome when you say “no.”
  • The wrong reasons to say “yes” are for likes, fear of abandonment, or to avoid conflict.
  • When we self-sabotage, we bring down the people who actually want to support us.
  • The people you may be bending over backwards to show up for, may not even care as much as you think.
  • If you’ve made commitments, you can still back out with grace.

Billionaire P.A.: Your Mind is Wealthy

August 30, 2018
00:0000:00

I’m not a great employee, but I’m a phenomenal entrepreneur.

After college, I didn’t look for a job, and I didn’t go to graduate school. Instead, I started a business. People told me I needed to have a backup plan. I said, “My backup plan is to focus on my first plan!”

You can spend your time working on other people’s dreams, or you can work to realize your own.

My husband once gave me a shirt that read “I don’t look for jobs, I create them.” I connected with that shirt. This shirt was from the mind of Billionaire P.A.

On this episode of Redefining Wealth, I talk with Billionaire P.A. about manifesting dreams.

Billionaire has a truly remarkable story: he was homeless and living in his car when he transformed his hopeless mindset into what he calls a “wealthy mind.” Now, he has a TEDx Talk with over 400,000 views, a Wealthy Minds clothing line, and a book he boldly sells for $63.36. His goal is to inspire billions of people to speak their dreams into existence.

Are you setting yourself up for success in all areas? Are you on your way to manifesting the life you were created to have?

Download this episode today to learn how Billionaire P.A. went from the brink of despair to inspiring billions of people to live their dreams.

Lori Harder: You Need a Tribe

August 16, 2018
00:0000:00

There’s one thing you’ve heard me say again and again: you can’t do it alone. It’s true, but creating the tribe you actually need to build is more complicated than you might realize.

First of all, make sure people earn the right to be in your tribe. No one gets a free pass and just because you like someone, doesn’t necessarily mean they belong in your tribe.

They need to be adding value to you and your purpose in some form or fashion.

That doesn’t mean you are using people. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. A tribe doesn’t all work for one, they work together to ensure that everyone benefits. If people feel like they aren’t getting as much as they are giving, they won’t want to be part of the tribe.

And to make sure they are feeling as much fulfillment, here’s the key ingredient: communication. Make sure that you are clear about everything with everyone in your tribe. Don’t assume they know what you are thinking, what you want or what you like because they don’t. Likewise, if you don’t know what they are thinking, ask them.

Recently, I read an amazing book on the subject: A Tribe Called Bliss by Lori Harder.

Lori and I spent some time together discussing so much about this topic, and we were even on each other’s podcast. So, as soon as you finish my show, go listen to hers because what we discuss there is just as powerful and about something completely different.

If you don’t know Lori, she is a leading expert in the field of fitness, transformational work, mindfulness, and self-love. She has grown two multi-million dollar businesses as a successful entrepreneur and network marketing professional.

She is also an author, cover model, and three-time fitness world champion, who offers a carefully curated set of practical tools to promote sustainable health, spiritual well-being, and financial freedom.

Through her books, unique coaching methods, and programs, she has helped countless people connect with their soul, transform their bodies, empower their minds, gain financial independence, and fall in love with themselves and their lives.

Throughout her career, Lori has regularly appeared on the covers of and published articles for Oxygen Magazine, STRONG Fitness Magazine, Health & Fitness Magazine and Prosper Magazine. She has also been featured on NBC, Fox, and TLC networks.

So download this episode today and learn all about the tribe you may want to build so you can achieve the fulfillment you deserve.
