Money is the Matrix for Quantifying your ’Give-Back’ to the World


RUNWAY 2 Inspire - Mini Episode 7 "Money is the Matrix for Quantifying your 'Give-Back' to the World"

It is how you can measure your ‘being of service’ to the World.  It is your moral obligation to serve the world with the gift you were born with.

3 Key take-always from this mini-sode:

    1.    Making Money is not bad, the greed of money is bad. Make money so you can do A LOT of good with it! If we put money in the right hands, the world will be a better place. So go out there and MAKE money!

    2.    If you have a mental block with feeling you can or deserve to earn abundant money, then DON’T measure success by money, measure it by the number of people you have served, touched, and transformed. 

    3.    In short, focus on how you’re going to help people and the money will follow.

 

Thank you for listening! I hope you’re enjoying these mini-episodes.

I am here for you, so if there’s something you want to know, or ask, please reach out!

I’m here to remind you to lift above the noise and focus on your bigger vision & purpose.

DM me and let me know what your challenges are and where your mind gets stuck and I’ll talk about them here in my mini-episodes!
