Can you relate?

Many designers talk to me about working way too many hours, evenings and weekends – often 50 or 60 hours a week and missing out on important family time. And on top of all that, they’re not being paid well for all this extra time spent on a job. They tell me it’s becoming a drag and they’re afraid of losing the joy of creating good design.

Can you relate?

If so, then I’d guess that money is always a struggle for you. You’re forever waiting for a check to appear, your cash flow bounces up and down, and you hope this next client will buy something so you’ll have some money.

If this is you, then take heart.

You can take action and stop this cycle, because not having enough money is not a circumstance … it’s a result of your mindset.

Before you start listing off all the reasons why you disagree, take a moment and keep reading … it might change your life and business forever.

This mindset I refer to is learned from others around you, they’re sharing their scarcity attitudes and after awhile you start believing it too.

It can be from friends, coworkers, and also your family. It’s based on how they think of themselves financially (yourself included) and others as “too big for their britches” when they try to rise above the passed down scarcity mindset.

Scarcity mindset is all around us. Even the media is to blame since it creates a good story to portray the rich guy as the bad guy. And it’s been happening for hundreds of years.
Consider the Robber Barons.

A robber baron is defined as a businessman from the 19th century who engaged in unethical and monopolistic practices, wielded widespread political influence, and amassed enormous wealth.

Andrew Carnegie is listed a robber baron.

Does his name sound familiar?

Carnegie led the expansion of the American steel industry. He gave almost 90 percent of his fortune ($78.6 billion in today’s economy) to charities, foundations, and universities. He called on the rich to use their wealth to improve society, and it stimulated a wave of philanthropy. He even commissioned the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

To be fair, he wasn’t perfect … but, does he sound bad to you?

I don’t think so either and here’s how it relates to you … you don’t have to be trapped by the scarcity mindset shared in society any longer.

You can take control of your own life (and eliminate your lack of money) by changing your mindset and expecting abundance in your life.

Dare to dream of what you want, and by the way, while you are dreaming … DREAM BIG!

Would you like 5 whole house jobs, maybe 3 remodels with furniture, and a 1.5M gross for the year?!

“Whatever your mind can conceive and dare to believe, it can achieve.”
— Napoleon Hill

Stop thinking and worrying about the “how” and make the commitment to your dream. You don’t need to know all the answers right now. The universe provides the way after you’ve made the commitment.

Until the “how” shows up, your job is to learn, visualize your dreams, and hang out with people who are already living the dream or are on their way there!

Where there is a will, there is always a way. And the truth is that you’re never presented with a vision without a way for accomplishing it!
If you’re ready to have wealth and abundance as consequences of your new mindset, then you’re ready to join me at
