Redefining Wealth with Patrice Washington
REWIND: Faith Can Not Be Your Financial Crutch

REWIND: Faith Can Not Be Your Financial Crutch

April 4, 2019

As we kickoff financial literacy month, I'm doing a REWIND episode before we start the Confident Money Series, next week. I didn't record this week, because my heart is telling me that I can grieve and mourn even for someone I don't know personally. My husband and I were just at the store where Nipsey Hussle was shot. As someone who grew up in that area, it's just heartbreaking.

I will be sharing specific tips for the upcoming Confident Money Series. In this episode, I set the tone by going back to why faith cannot be your financial crutch. It will be a great foundation as we get into the Confident Money Series.

 

CLIFF NOTES

  • Many of us have been raised to believe that money is bad or being poor is more noble. This can create conflicting beliefs.
  • We can’t just be irresponsible with our financial lives, and then just pray for things to get better.
  • There is a personal responsibility that comes with personal finance. Some things you just need to do.
  • We can’t pray our way out of financial problems and predicaments. We should pray before we get into those predicaments.
  • You have to know your own numbers. We are all responsible for what goes in and what goes out.
  • You need to accept help when needed. Sometimes you need the help of someone else to get to what's next for you.
  • Nurture what you do know. Words are powerful. You should wake up knowing that you are ready to manage your money and manage it well.

Doubt Doesn’t Mean Don’t Do It

Doubt Doesn’t Mean Don’t Do It

March 28, 2019

Even powerful and successful women doubt themselves at times. Doubt has also become a common thread with women in my community. Sometimes, we think that people who are successful never have doubts or fears. The truth is everyone has doubts and fears, it’s just that the successful people choose to push through those doubts and move forward. In this episode, I will talk about doubt and give you three actionable ways to push through that doubt.

I also have a big announcement about the Purpose Chaser Community. You can sign up for free to connect with like minded people. Next month is financial literacy month where I’ll be doing a whole series about money management and tips.

CLIFF NOTES

  • People and women in general often think that people doing amazing things don’t have the same doubt and fears that they have.
  • Don’t let doubt creep in and distract you from making decisions and moving forward with your goals and progressing towards success.  
  • It’s up to us to decide that we are going to do whatever it takes to push through obstacles and our own fears.
  • Doubt is normal defeat is a choice. It’s normal to have doubt, but letting it stop you is a choice.
  • Let the benefit of the doubt apply to you. We give this benefit to others. It’s time to give it to ourselves.
  • Write out the worst case scenario and realize that’s not the worst thing that could happen.

Quotes from the show:

“Give yourself the benefit of the doubt and remove this need for perfection and decide if the worst-case is really the worst thing that could happen.” - Patrice Washington

“Sometimes we have the perception that women or people in general who are doing amazing things don't have the same fears and doubts that we do.” - Patrice Washington

“We get stuck by allowing doubt to take root and completely distract us.” - Patrice Washington

“Your doubt does not mean that you shouldn't do it. Doubt does not mean don't do anything.” - Patrice Washington

“Decide that you are going to do whatever it takes to push through even pushing through your own fear.” - Patrice Washington

“Doubt is normal, but allowing it to stop you in your tracks is a choice.” - Patrice Washington

“God doesn't require perfection from us and neither do most humans.” - Patrice Washington

“Don't measure your reality against a filtered fantasy like social media.” - Patrice Washington

“Why do we give so many other people the benefit of the doubt, but cut it off when it comes to us.” - Patrice Washington

“People want to support you, but you have to allow the benefit of the doubt for yourself in order for them to do that.” - Patrice Washington

“Progress beats perfection on any day of the week.” - Patrice Washington

“Doubt doesn't mean don't do it. Who is served by not doing it?” - Patrice Washington

“The best thing you can do for doubt is to challenge it and go get a win.” - Patrice Washington

Rachel Luna: Built to Survive

Rachel Luna: Built to Survive

March 21, 2019

Rachel Luna is a good friend of mine and an entrepreneur, master confidence coach, speaker, author, podcaster, and a woman who tells it like it is. She helps women and ultra secure men find clarity and confidence to have the life and business of their dreams. She has overcome many obstacles in her life to find her purpose in helping people increase their sales and revenue through increased confidence and living with purpose.

Episode Summary:

In this powerful episode, Rachel shares some of her story and how and why she became a coach. She talks about how external issues can be solved by fixing the internal issues. We talk about active journaling, listening to god, having boundaries, not being a victim, and the realities of motherhood. We change the narrative around shame, because no one can shame you. Rachel also gives some great examples of having and enforcing positive boundaries.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Rachel helps people become more confident in anything. Externally, people may think they need help with something, but internally it may be a confidence issue.
  • As she overcame her problems and found a coach to help her, Rachel’s natural talent for helping others became evident.
  • A coach provides guidance and asks powerful questions. A consultant or mentor gives advice.
  • Actively wait on the lord to help you by seeking answers and praying and journaling. Take action and listen to God.
  • Sometimes it’s literally doing the work to get past the tests that we are given. Doing work you love does not have to be laborious.
  • Don’t see yourself as a victim. Take back your power and don’t squander your opportunity.

Sarita Maybin: Ask for What You Want

Sarita Maybin: Ask for What You Want

March 14, 2019

About our Guest

Sarita Maybin is an international speaker and communications expert. She has worked with clients like Hewlett Packard, Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles County, Department of Navy and the Las Vegas Convention Center and has spoken all over the world. In 2012 she was voted Top 5 Communication Speaker and has had the privilege of speaking on the TEDx stage. She’s also the author of If You Can’t Say Something Nice, What DO You Say? and an expert in confronting tough communication situations in a positive and fun way.

Episode Summary:

Today, we continue the Powerful Women Series in honor of Women's History Month. Our focus today is on the people pillar and how we communicate. We tackle the complex topic of speaking up when it  might not be comfortable and talk about the importance of finding a middle ground to say what needs to be said before things blow up. We discuss how to ask for what we want using the right language. This includes giving the other party a vote by using collaborative phrases and the power of positive communication phrases. This episode is full of practical tactics for both personal and professional communication.

CLIFF NOTES

  • It’s important to speak up and say what needs to be said.
  • Use phrases like, “I would appreciate” to make requests not demands.
  • We need to just ask for what we want. Use a phrase like, “would you be willing to?” Use collaborative phrases at home.
  • When giving feedback focus on the positive rather than the negative and use positive communication phrases like, “help me understand.”
  • 3 Clues that you should pick up the phone instead of email or text. Sensitive subject, conflict, or when there’s a back and forth.
  • Instead of a spellcheck do a “please and thank you check.”
  • The 3Ps by Dr. Martin Sullivan: Don't take things PERSONALLY. It's not PERMANENT. Don't let it ruin the big PICTURE.
  • We can use “if”, "as soon as" and "when" to set boundaries.

Mattie James: The Responsibility of Influence

March 7, 2019

About our Guest:

Mattie James began blogging about her favorite products and outfits in 2008. Five years later in 2010, blogging became her full-time job. In 2017, she began her Mattie James blog where she talks about beauty, life, motherhood, inspiration and more. She also creates courses and has worked with well known brands like TJ Maxx, State Farm, Olay, and many more. She is also the host of The Mattie James Show and the Mattie & Chris podcast.

Episode Summary:

March is Women's History Month or what I call the powerful woman month. This month I am highlighting some dynamic women that I really admire. Mattie James is a brand influencer and entrepreneur who I admire and am thrilled to have on the show. We have been supporting each other over social media and it's great to talk with her. One of the things we talk about is giving ourselves permission which was also the theme of The Bliss Project that I just attended over this past weekend.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Mattie is amazing at working with brands, but she also lives her life’s purpose with her work.  
  • She evolved from a fashion blogger to a mom who began sharing more aspects of her life. People cared more about her story, than just about what she was wearing.
  • For Mattie, everything is content as she authentically shares her life.
  • People want to make their lives better. If you have figured out a way to make your life better, people want to apply that to their lives.
  • To be successful, we have got to prioritize mindset. Our success mirrors our personal development.
  • Assuming that something good is out of reach is a reflection of our mindset.
  • Get to the reason why you want to be successful and ask who you want to help and who you want to make better.

“Ask questions from the right perspective in the right position.” - Mattie James

“When you put out content that is really you, your following will inevitably grow.” - Mattie James

Greatness Requires You to Expect Resistance

Greatness Requires You to Expect Resistance

February 21, 2019

Episode Summary:

I realized as I was finishing up the Results Not Resolutions series, that I didn't mention the best part to all of this. When you start shifting your focus to get to your next level of greatness, you can start to experience things that make you feel like all hell is breaking loose. It doesn't matter how pumped you are about setting goals and getting results, you still have to be prepared for the fact that life is still going to happen.

Resistance will still surface in spite of your best efforts. We will all find ourselves coming to a fork in the road about whether we keep going or whether we give up. Butting up against resistance is why many of us fall away from our goals year after year. Today, I'm going to talk about resistance and how to work through it.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Resistance is a force that acts to stop the progress of something or make it slower.
  • All materials naturally contain resistance to the flow of electric current. We are all experiencing some level of resistance at any given moment.
  • Expect resistance, because no one is immune to it. Even people who look like they are doing great could be going through difficult times.
  • When we make plans and goals, we expect the vision we have for them.
  • Set yourself up to have a contingency plan to navigate through the seasons of resistance.
  • We have the power to reframe this resistance to be for us not against us.
  • Resistance is here to reveal opportunities for growth.

Quotes from the show:

"When you start shifting your focus to get to your next level of greatness, you can start to experience things that make you feel like all hell is breaking loose.” - Patrice Washington

"Set yourself up to become a person that understands that resistance is inevitable and have a contingency plan in place for how you navigate and maneuver through seasons of resistance.” - Patrice Washington

"I'm reaching for my next level of greatness, so I know that there's going to be some level of resistance on the journey.” - Patrice Washington

"For every measure of resistance you face, release a volt that can help you push through.” - Patrice Washington

"You have to decide that being stuck and letting the resistance overwhelm you is not an option.” - Patrice Washington

"Resistance is here to reveal opportunities for growth.” - Patrice Washington

"Resistance is here in order to help us create a plan or a path to overcome something similar next time.” - Patrice Washington

"Expect resistance. No one is immune to resistance.” - Patrice Washington  

"We have the power to reframe this resistance to be for us not against us.” - Patrice Washington

“You get to reframe your resistance and make it about how you release your voltage how you release your power.” - Patrice Washington

“You do not embrace resilience without having been through resistance. The definition of resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties.” - Patrice Washington

Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood: Love Powered: Love Yourself First

Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood: Love Powered: Love Yourself First

February 14, 2019

About our Guests:

Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood are two entrepreneurs who created a business together based on the power of affirmations. They discovered that tapping into their own gifts has been a powerful transformation too. They wanted to share this with their children and Love Powered Co was created. It is their goal to empower the next generations of mindful leaders with conscious products curated for the modern family.

Episode Summary:

Anna and Lindy create affirmation cards with three affirmations and a power phrase. The original intent was enabling their kids to understand how the words connect. They found this method is helpful for everyone. They use words like “I am” to help tap into the power within us. This is a powerful episode that highlights how we can all use reminders to tap into our own greatness and super powers.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Our subconscious uses affirmations to tell ourselves to be better or believe in a powerful statement.
  • Understanding how the words in our affirmations connect is helpful to everybody.
  • Having powerful positive reminders is necessary to prevent us from self-sabotaging.
  • Curiosity is a power not a negative. There is nothing wrong with being inquisitive.
  • The affirmation cards for kids were designed to get them away from a screen and help them connect on a deeper level.
  • Everyone is encouraged to connect with their higher selves.
  • The way we speak about ourselves creates our reality. I am is the most powerful way to begin a phrase.

Quotes from the show:

REWIND: Dr. Brad Klontz: The Truth About Savings

REWIND: Dr. Brad Klontz: The Truth About Savings

February 7, 2019

About our Guest:

Dr. Brad Klontz is a financial psychologist who focuses on raising awareness around issues relating to financial health and financial psychology. He is the founder of the Financial Psychology Institute, an Associate Professor at Creighton University, and Managing Principal of Your Mental Wealth Advisors. He was awarded the Innovative Practice Presidential Citation, is the author of numerous books and publications, and is a personal mentor of mine.  

Episode Summary:

Today's episode is a rewind episode with Dr. Brad Klontz. I chose this episode because it has very special significance for me. Dr. Brad Klontz is a financial psychologist, and he was one of the first guests on my show. This year we have talked a lot about getting results not just setting resolutions. One of the results I wanted for 2018 was to become a certified Behavioral Finance Specialist. Thanks to the influence of Dr. Brad Klontz, I will have my certification in financial psychology within the next month which has sparked another result I have my sights on for 2019; pursuing an MBA with a concentration in behavioral finance and financial psychology.

Glen Henry: 5 Steps to Releasing Your Genius

Glen Henry: 5 Steps to Releasing Your Genius

January 31, 2019

About our Guest:

Glen Henry is a musician turned YouTube sensation. His Beleaf in Fatherhood channel has surpassed 100K subscribers. He also has a website and podcast of the same name. He is the speaker behind the impactful TED Talk, What I've Learned About Parenting as a Stay-at-home Dad, as well as, the author of It’s Bedtime Now. This father of three, soon to be four, wants to create a positive impact on both fathers and mothers. His popularity is growing, and he can be seen everywhere including on a new Pamper’s commercial with singer, John Legend.  

Episode Summary:

I am so excited to have Glen on the show today. We talk about how Glen used his honest approach to fatherhood to transition from music to building an audience and becoming a YouTube sensation. He talks about the 5 steps to releasing genius. If you are feeling stuck or blame your lack of success on someone else, pay special attention to whether you could be missing a key step in releasing your genius and creativity.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Glen knew the Internet would be the right platform to reach his audience. He made a 15-year plan and achieved those goals in two years.
  • The first stage that you're genius stands on is an idea. When we have an idea it's already complete in our minds.
  • The second stage is releasing your idea to your ability. This is where your brain and your ability form a relationship of trust.
  • The third stage is where you have started an idea, and you have shared it with a small audience of one like a trusted friend to get feedback.
  • The fourth stage is your audience. This is when people actually get use out of what you have created.
  • The fifth stage is virality. This is when people who aren't your target audience get attached to your work. This is where we receive the most criticism and pick up the biggest amount of growth.

Quotes from the show:

"I'm not responsible for my wife’s lack of vision, I'm responsible for manifesting something she can believe in." - Glen Henry

“Your brain and your ability have to form a relationship together where your brain trusts your ability, and your ability trusts that it's not too overwhelming.” - Glen Henry

“Sometimes we trust our friends more than we trust our ability. Depending on what happens in this relationship can make or break our genius.” - Glen Henry

“You have to manifest your dreams, so that people can see them, feel them, and touch them.” - Glen Henry

“When we release our art to our audience it is no longer ours. They take it and make it whatever they want it to be.” - Glen Henry

“Virality is what our audience does with what we create.” - Glen Henry

“How many of us do not have the results we desire because we skip stages?” - Patrice Washington

"Sometimes we get so caught up in perfectionism that we prevent other people from the blessing. Sometimes you just have to release the genius.” - Patrice Washington  

"At some point you have to get out of the ability stage. What I've learned is to stop making things harder than they have to be.” - Patrice Washington
