Most of my life I've struggled with money and making it because I've kept my own money shrouded in mystery.
I didn't know how much I had or made or spent.
I didn't 'do the math' about creating more of it. When I did, I saw what was possible. I had clarity.
And now I have an entirely different relationship with money.

Here is how I know this, and how I am managing it.
Join me in Moorgate for episode 19 as we discuss the power technology can have over us!
A lot of us see our fears as an indication of what is inherently wrong with us, and what we must avoid.

This has been game-changing for my longer-term focus.

Are you responding to life more than creating it? Are you prioritising what is seemingly urgent over dedicating time to those things that create your ideal life? The latter are the important things, and they are easy to ignore if we allow ourselves to do so.
Let's talk about it briefly in today's episode 16 of Stroll With Alex!
Coming from you in a grey car-park in London in October, we're talking about self-esteem.

Rejection is hard. But it's also a huge part of life and actually doing well in life. Rejection marks what we don't yet know and it is the gateway to growth, money and success. And it can be thought of in an extremely positive way, as I've found out.

Observe and learn instead.
