Let’s Get To The Point – Financial Decision-Making Is Where It’s At When It Comes To Money

Making powerful choices, acting in congruence with your goals and taking intentional steps in the direction you’re heading… requires making sound financial decisions. 

 

Yet, it’s something that is never spoken about, let alone discussed or taught. Till now…

 

Becoming aware of and understanding how we go about making financial decisions is ONE of the most impactful steps we can take when we own our own business.

Thanks for joining in on this mini (and super casual!) audio series. I’ve created this as a bit of boost begin 2021 after a long and interesting 2020.

My intention for this year is to help as many privately owned businesses uncover and discover their own version of a sustainable and profitable business. One that supports them both financially and in many other ways such as keeping the business owner healthy, engaged in important relationships and enjoying life outside of work and in their community.

So please join me for this casual, yet insightful conversation around

Mastering Financial Decision Making, making powerful choices to create your own financial reality.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” -Victor Frankl

If you’re not sure if listening, examining and pondering on these discussion points is for you then I’ll let you know that I’ve recorded this for business owners who want a more sustainable livelihood and to feel financially-well and thriving but also experience…

– doubt or indecision when it comes to their business finances or personal financial life

– they may plan often and then act differently in the moment

– they may feel powerless in financial discussion or negotiations

– they may notice at times they appear naive or not sure around others

– they may sometimes feel regret or resentful after the fact, the financial decision or purchase

– they may take others advice over their own instincts often, they’ve lost trust in their own capability to make financial decisions

– they may be just getting by, or often circle back to only ever having just enough in their business, or feel they have hit a plateau

– for some, financial decision-making looks much easier for others and they wonder why it feels clunky or uncomfortable in their business or life?

Over the next few weeks, I will add a new audio link below for access to the next recording. Feel free to post any feedback or discussion points on posts over on Instagram!

This first audio is to give context around this topic.

What is Financial Decision-Making? When are we actually making decisions? And I also cover WHY should we even pay attention to HOW we make decisions! 

“We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world” – Howard Zinn

These are simply ideas and discussion-starters. Let’s start bringing some attention and intention to MAKING POWERFUL CHOICES into our business and financial lives.

Part TWO- The HOW of Financial Decision-making. 

Click the text above for this episode!

How do we actually make decisions? How does our mind and body respond during this process? What part of us, or who within us is actually making these decisions?

This is a little information about the findings in recent neuro-economic research. This helps explain the link between how we feel and how we think while we are making decisions. And interestingly bringing awareness to this can start to shift how we align our decisions to our conscious business and life desires. 

Why do people find their mind goes blank when they try to make financial decisions?

Why do we at times have such regret about a decision or wish we had chosen differently?

Why do we set a goal and strategy and then in the moment not actually do as we planned?

Check out this episode to gain more of understanding what’s happening in our inner world as we make financial decisions.

We know that how we spend our money and which causes we champion are votes for the future we want to see. – Bernadette Jiwa
