Accelerate your Business Financial Confidence is starting soon - 6 week Accelerator program that will change your life completely and forever  https://www.healthynumbers.com.au/money/

When you understand how money works in your business your life changes completely and forever !!

Gabriella Rosa graduated as a Naturopath with a Bachelor of Health Science almost 20 years ago and has been running her business pretty much since graduating.

Gabriela is the author of 4 books.

She has a Master of Science in Medicine (Reproductive Health and Human Genetics) from The University of Sydney and has recently completed clinical research program at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health where she was awarded The Scholar Award for academic excellence.

She is currently working towards a Masters in Public Health.

It's not all academic, Gabriela has a world wide impact:

In the past 10 years she has run free online events that have helped educate more than 140 000 people across more than 100 countries. One of here events was for more than 12 000 people in a 12 day free online event – this cost $80 000 to put this event together and run online.

The reason that Gabriela is able to run her free events for so many people is because her business is financially successful.

If you have been listening to previous conversations you know that one of my favourite questions is “when did you feel your business was real?” and Gabrialla’s answer is completely different to any other we have heard – she said “Last week” and laughs.

She goes on to explain what she means “As your business progresses you face different challenges”

"In that moment the business is real and then it becomes unreal again."

Gabriela is really honest about how she made the huge change from the entire business being in a physical location as well as relying on her individual effort – hours for dollars - and building something that was one to many. The changes happened in 2013 – she closed her physical practice and "took everything online."

She speaks really honestly about the thinking process about choosing a niche and tells a truly helpful example of how she has landed where she is today in her business - the pathway to finding the people she works with and solves their number 1 issue

I am personally inspired by what she says about her focus on THE MOST challenging cases that led her to where she is today. 

Gabriella asks a really powerful question: what is the highest price that you can comfortable ask for?

This underpins her premise that Pricing is a self image question.

Gabriela is the author of 4 books:

NEW! Fertility Breakthrough: Overcoming infertility and miscarriage when other treatments have failed


Protecting Your Fertility: The Dangers of Conventional Pest Control and Natural, Safe Alternatives Revealed by Gabriela Rosa


Eat Your Way To Parenthood: The Diet Secrets of Highly Fertile Couples Revealed by Gabriela Rosa

Today I want to take us through the basic belief cycle – you may have seen this before or have had it explained to you before … and I especially want to use some of our beliefs about our ability to understand money as an example

The basic belief cycle = we start with our beliefs and our thoughts - our thoughts and our beliefs lead to our feelings - our feelings lead to the actions we take - and then our actions determine the results we achieve - our results then impact our beliefs and out thoughts and so we go around and around

In today's episode I use our beliefs about money and understanding how money works in our business and I follow the cycle through what happens to many of my clients.

My gift to you from this episode is a way for you to shift that self belief - to jump the line from where you are to where you can be!

This is my Christmas gift to you …. Your belief in yourself :

It is absolutely possible for me to understand how money works in my business

Listen in to this short episode where I give you the action to take to shift your beliefs and your thoughts. 

1 action - that's all and repeated daily. Micro changes not massive changes are what we need right now.

Micro changes

Trust me, this works!

Accelerate your Business Financial Confidence is starting soon - 6 week Accelerator program that will change your life completely and forever  https://www.healthynumbers.com.au/money/

When you understand how money works in your business your life changes completely and forever !!

Julie Goodall takes the solo out of being a solopreneur and in this honest and practical discussion Julie shares the wisdom of building and growing her business over the past 6 years.

Highlights in this interview:

What she wished she'd done differently? Realised which clients were the "best fit" for her business.

How did she get started? It was when a previous client described her as "like having an extra right arm" and she realised that all the things she loves to do – others don’t! and therein lay her business opportunity!

She talks about the “life changing” value of hiring a coach. Julie learned how to set boundaries “and as an empath, I always wanted to say “Yes” to everyone.”

Julie knew exactly how much her business needed to pay her to support their family of 4 – she loves being across the numbers. Music to my ears.

When you understand how money works in your business your life changes completely and forever !!

A few weeks ago a came across this book: The XX Brain by Dr Lisa Mosconi Click here for more information

Over the past decade we have come to know so much more about the brain – through neuroscience and brain studies and extensive research.

Dr Lisa is especially interested in women’s health – and preventing dementia and Alzheimer’s

One of the things Dr Lisa talks about in her book is the importance of sleep - for the brain

I love to sleep - and to sleep well!

I believe our confidence is directly affected by how much sleep we get. I know my confidence certainly is related to how much sleep I have.... maybe you find the same??

It occurred to me that this is a key ingredient to be more successful in business - being more confident

In this episode I discuss the impact effective sleep has on your confidence and therefore, on your business success.

It's a short 12 minute episode packed with information to grow your confidence FAST!

My guess is that you are here because you are a business owner and you want to increase your financial intelligence & business acumen.

You want to have confident conversations when it comes to talking about money

You want to make business decisions based on data and facts

… so that ultimately you can build financial autonomy through business success.

Highlights from this episode:

1. What happens when you don't pay attention to the numbers?! You just might get a very pleasant surprise!

2. The unexpected benefits of identifying your niche - which she wishes she had done "much earlier" than she did:

  • collaboration opportunities
  • content creation
  • speaking to your ideal client
  • understanding the platforms they use in their business - this is especially important for Jessica 

3. She tells us "I have a degree in design - not a business degree. I didn't get any training in how to run a business." Jessica has a unique perspective on the role of business coaches and others for specific projects in her business.

and much more

Jessica Freeman started her business Jess Creatives more than 10 years ago - designing T-shirts as a college project. She charged a whopping $10 + she always got one of the T-shirts!

Fast forward to when she was able to quit her corporate job when she realised she was making more money designing websites and providing copy as a side hustle - than she was even being paid in her job!

That's when she tells us "Pay attention to the numbers!"

Settle in for a terrific conversation with Jessica Freemen

Jessica mentions in the interview that she was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 30. She has written a book to help others in similar situation:

It's called The Type 1 Life and you can find out more here: www.thetype1life.com
