If there has ever been a time to redefine the way we do business, the way we interact with our clients, and the way we show up as entrepreneurs, the time is now. The COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak has already changed the world, and things are going to keep changing. But underneath the fear and the tragedy this unprecedented time has brought us, we have one thing we've all been begging for more of, and that is time. And this is time we'll never get back. What will you do with it? In this episode, I'm talking about how to pivot in your business, how to get creative about your work and contributions to the world, and a behind the scenes look at what I'm doing with mine.

Power quote from today's episode: "When women are more resourced, we do more good. Money amplifies people."

Today I have Amanda Frances on the show for the THIRD time. She is my most-frequent guest, I've never had anyone on the show 3 times before, so this is a big deal. Amanda is a self-made multi-millionaire, thought leader, business coach, self-proclaimed "money queen" - and most importantly, a good friend of mine who I respect and admire very much.

If you've ever felt like there is never enough money for you, or maybe you feel paralyzed by the fear that "money may run out", if you've felt anxiety over thinking about your bills and when they're due, maybe you feel you're just not the kind of person that will ever "have money" - maybe - and lets be really real here - you're waiting for someone to come save you, like a rich husband, an inheritance, or the lottery). If you have ever struggled with money - this episode will rock. your. world.


Amanda and I get deep fast - we're unraveling all the bullsh*t stories we ALL grew up with (because we all have a money story and an upbringing that has definitely impacted it). She's going to help you realign your identity, tap into your new level, understand how money TRULY works, and become YOUR version of The Wealthy Woman. Prepare yourself to listen to this a few times. It's that good.


And before you start listening, I want you to check on the show notes for this episode. If you're listening on your iPhone you can just swipe up on the episode to see them, or if you're on the web you should be able to access them right under the show title. I have a special link in there for you that's only accessible through me - to sign up for Amanda's course, Money Mentality Makeover that she's going to talk about in this episode. I've personally done the course and let me tell you - every single time I watch the videos I level up in ways I could have never imagined.


Amanda opens enrollment once a year - so this is the ONLY time to get exclusive access to her course with my bonus gifts which I'll tell you about during the show. Bookmark that link now and save it because I KNOW after this episode you're going to want to sign up for her course (trust me, you don't want to wait a whole year for this).


As Amanda says, when something catches your eye, gets your attention, resonates with you, makes you believe you were born for greatness, keeps showing up in your awareness, or stays in your mind, pay attention to that shit. That is everything. It may seem like just a course, or just a teacher who intrigues you, but its SO much more. It's your next step. It's the needed step. It's the step that will change everything for you.

Talking to Romi is like being treated to a chat with your favorite, wiser sister, who can give you the kick in the butt you need but do it with so much love. Grab a cup of coffee and get ready to be inspired.

I don't know about you, but I am guilty of what I refer to as, "future tripping." This is where you start to think WAY too much about the future, and almost obsess about things that haven't even happened yet - or may never happen! Future tripping can cause anxiety, because we take ourselves out of the moment. I find I'm much more at peace, much more creative, much more focused, and much more powerful when I can just be in the NOW. When I can be mindful of the present moment and truly sink into that.
 
I have a very special guest today that I'm so excited to share with you. We are going to dig into this topic, as well as so many other aspects of mindfulness and what it looks like to feel more present, so that you can create the life of your dreams.

It’s incredibly important to speak our dreams into existence. That means speaking positively and optimistically about the things we want, and talking about them with certainty that they will happen. Of course, we must do the work, but the way we speak about our dreams is crucial to their success. We must believe, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we will experience good things that help drive our vision forward. We must believe that the right people will show up, at the right time, and guide us on our journeys. We must believe that we will be successful, and we must be bold enough to say it out loud. In this episode, I'm sharing my tips on how to do just that. Grab a pen and a notebook and get ready to dive in! This is a good one.

Around 2014, I met a woman named Noelle Santos on the internet. Neither of us can recall exactly how we “met,” but we both recall Noelle contacting me through Snapchat, asking for advice around an idea she had to bring a bookstore to the Bronx, where none existed at the time. At the time, Noelle was working a cushy, corporate job on Wall Street, earning six-figures and putting her accounting degree to good use. She was comfortable, but after seeing a petition on Facebook to urge her local congress members to build a bookstore in the Bronx after the last Barnes & Noble went out of business, she became extremely uncomfortable.

The Bronx is a borough of 1.5 million people and ten colleges, and also Noelle’s hometown, where she currently lives. Furious and frustrated, she signed the petition, but immediately decided she wasn’t about to wait for the politics to align to get her bookstore. And in that moment, she got to work.

I sat down with Noelle recently at The Lit Bar, the bookstore/wine bar she built herself from the ground-up five years later after crowdfunding support and a whole lot of hustle. As we sipped on our wine (she had a Cab, I had a Chardonnay), we reminisced on those earlier conversations we had as she was rallying to get the store created. We talked about the importance of choosing yourself to get things done. We talked about the criticism she’s faced despite her good intentions, and the daily challenges that arise while embarking on a brand-new industry.

Get ready for this empowering conversation!
