This week on the Creatives Do Money Podcast, Episode #19

Welcome to Creatives Do Money!  Each week we explore the topics of everyday money management, solo business ownership, and how we are fueling our creative futures.  I’m your host, Eowyn Levene, money coach, massage therapist, and watermelon enthusiast.  And I’m on a mission to help you build the lasting financial stability that frees you up to do your work without hustling anxiously for the next dollar.  

Today we’re getting into planning our year ahead, but in a particular way. We’re planning from a place of loving and accepting ourselves as we are, and building a vision of what we want to do, to create, to evolve, from there.

In this episode

New Year, New You is a bunch of huey! (01:31)

  • What if you were just perfectly imperfect already?
  • If you start by accepting yourself as worthy and valuable right now, what does your vision for the future look like when you start from that place of wholeness?
  • Will accepting yourself kill your motivation to make things and do things?
  • The financial implications and timelines of this new vision you’ve created, from a place of wholeness

Question 1 (09:21)

  • What are the financial behaviors and habits I want more of? What do I want less of?
  • How to identify the thoughts you need to practice (hint: Episode 18)
  • Outcome vs process goals

“You can be more effective when you’re not constantly shaming yourself and telling yourself you’re not good enough. And bonus, you’re so much more likely to enjoy your life along the way.”

  • What might get in the way of doing the necessary money work, to build the financial foundation needed to reach your goals?

Question 3 (12:56)

  • What help do you need to get past the possible struggles when moving towards your goals?
  • Hint: it is NOT this thing
  • If 1-on-1 work is something you know will help you improve your finances, join me for money coaching. I’m taking new clients in January 2021!
