Why You Need A Money Support Group

“If you are going to arrive at your problems, arrive at your problems with more money and as much wealth as you can.” – Lisa Nichols

Let’s talk about money. Money is a dignified conversation. Conversation being the key word! Money is a dignified conversation that we don’t talk enough about. In fact, we’ve learned not to talk about it from our family, our mothers, grandparents, and community. Instead, we just kind of navigate money. Well, here’s what I know…

It’s time to talk about money and finances, and it’s time to talk about something other than the struggle. We are going to talk about wealth building and financial growth.

Money is Energy

I went from broke and broken to respectfully being in the top 1% of income earners in America. I used to be nervous and, even still, a little jittery when I say that because I don’t want it to compromise my commitment, or your perception of my love for you.

We have so much energy around money. Money is energy. And for the record, money is a masculine energy. We get all out of our skin about that statement unless you have learned to overcome that feeling. So, let’s talk about how to increase your abundance, because abundance is for everyone! 

Money, Finance, Wealth. Same zip code, different block.

You must know where you are, in order to see where you are headed. Where you are right now, financially, didn’t happen overnight. And where you are going won’t happen overnight either. We must be consistent.

I want to talk about money, finance, and wealth because they are all in the same zip code, but they don’t live on the same block.

You can have money and still be in struggle, right?

You can have finances to navigate and still wonder, am I going to have enough?

You can have wealth and still be sad.

Let’s be clear, if you are going to arrive at your problems, arrive at your problems with more money, arrive there with as much wealth as you can.

What Wealth Looks Like

Wealth allows you to navigate. Wealth equals freedom. It doesn’t determine who I am, it just gives me more access to better memories. It allows me to solve problems for my family, and for myself. It allows me to build memories for my community. It allows me to step in and support. That’s the importance of wealth for me.

Generational Beliefs

Most of us come into this world with a body of beliefs around money. It’s handed down to us from prior generations. Unless we seek out other belief systems, other perceptions, more education for a deeper understanding, then we will live out our parents’ limiting beliefs, fears, and scarcity mindset around money. This is why a money support group is so necessary.

This was a hard one for me. I started making a lot of money, but I hadn’t learned about money. No one in my community or immediate surroundings could give me the information I needed. I had to make the difficult effort to step out of my community, out of my nationality, out of my gender in order to learn about money. Love yourself enough to ask..

How do I earn more money?
How do I create multiple income streams?
And if I make money, how do I hold onto my money?
How do I make my money go further, faster?
How do I save my money better?
How do I make more money on my return?
How do I scale my money?
How do I pay me forward?
How do I make generational wealth?

I am here to tell you that there is so much that we can do with our money. You have to know where you are going and where you are growing! Let’s get there.

In Order to Earn You Have to Learn

In order to grow significant wealth, you will need a team of advisors. Think of them as coaches or mentors. You will need to surrender to growth, surrender to the opportunity and the possibility to expand.

First, identify where you are:

“I need to figure out how to NOT run out of money. I need to make it to the end of the month.”

OR

“I’ve got enough money, but not enough to breathe and create and have freedom. I can’t afford any emergencies.”

OR

“The money is flowing. But, how do I scale this effortlessly? How can I make my money work for me? How can I create a legacy?”

Energy Grows Where Energy Goes

What I realized is that we don’t spend enough time looking at our money. And, we don’t spend enough time looking at new ways to make money. It won’t just come to you all the time. We need to sit in creation mode. Write it down. Speak it out loud. Listen to others. And then sit some more with the intention of your money going further.

Money Saved is Money Earned

What can I create today? This week? This month? Record your financial wins, whether it’s earnings or savings, whether it’s creation or elimination. Yes, if you eliminate a bill, you have eliminated a cost and you have just earned your money back. Record that eliminated cost before you spend it elsewhere and lose it again.

Be Intimate With Your Money

Be willing to get intimate with your money. Know your numbers. Every single month I go over every single account in detail. Turn to your advisors, those people you trust, who you have seen have success and manage money well. Together, talk about money and devise your plan to grow your wealth.

Don’t share money conversations with the wrong people. I don’t talk about money with people who have a bad relationship with their money. I came from the “never enough”, from the lack and scarcity, and I don’t want to go back.

I invite you to look at how you are earning money. Look at your savings. If you are in a corporate job, did you know you can buy your way to freedom? You first have to know how much it costs.

Your Job is Your Investor

Your job isn’t just your job, it’s your investor. Your job will help you invest. People say, Lisa, I don’t want a job. Your job is to provide the money you will use to invest. Your most critical money decisions must be made based on facts and logic. Not emotion. Money is not an emotional topic.

The Power of Seeking Counsel

I struggled for years, financially, because I wanted to keep my finances to myself. Money is a necessary conversation. We owe it to our family, our children, our legacy to seek counsel. My life is barely recognizable because I sought counsel from wiser and more experienced people.

“Seeking counsel and trusting the right people was the key to my next-level.”

So start the conversation and start to gather your team. Be the genius in your zone and let someone else support your financial growth. Knowing what NOT to do is as important as knowing what to do. So, ask disruptive questions like, “Where have you made money mistakes in the past?” “What can I do with the money that I haven’t done yet?”

With a money support group, you are going to grow by having conversations, asking all the questions, and discovering multiple income opportunities. They don’t just come up and show themselves. You have to look for the opportunity and you have to create wealth.

I challenge you to start the conversation here. I love to hear from you. Where are you starting your financial journey from? What are your financial goals? Do you have a financial team that you trust? Let us hear from you in the comments. This is a safe place to share and not be judged. We all come from different backgrounds and geniuses. That is what makes this a dignified conversation.

I am your sister in learning and growing your financial wealth. I am your sister in prosperity and possibility. I believe in you!

    Money is a dignified conversation! Although my daughter has yet to welcome me into her money conversation, I continue to seek that wise counsel for my own money matters and am more encouraged when a woman of your caliber, commitment and achievement invites us to do the same. I love it and I love you for being so candid and respectfully blunt about the need to speak about and seek counsel about money and to get freedom in this area of life–yes, Lord! In the bible we are told to seek wise counsel so there you go….thank you Lisa, thank you!

    Hey Lisa, This was something we didn’t talk about growing up. Coming from a family of 5 and being a middle child, we were used to hand me downs and I would love to earn more money through MIT. Need to revisit our teaching. Generational wealth is an issue. Just listening to you Wow double digits for 17 years. Need to revisit that my financial growth. I wish I was 100 thousands . I need to figure that out so I don’t get tight . Thanks for sharing.

    Hello, Lisa. Congratulations on your success! I’ve been a professional broadcaster and have been teaching radio & television announcing and communications development for many years. When COVID hit, I had to move my course online via Zoom. Recently, I’ve converted my entire course into a full package of 7 instructional videos, scripted commercials, handouts, and an announcers’ bona fide audition test. What I would like to know is how to go about making my at-home course available to people worldwide? If you could help me with this, I’d be immensely appreciative! Warm Regards, Jeff

    Hello, Lisa!
    As always, you share valuable knowledge! My aha! moment… stop having money conversations with people who have issues with their own money! Wow… My moment of celebration as I was listening – I did seek counsel and guidance to help “fix” my money issues and move me to a new level of savings, increase and better money management!! Having an accountant and financial advisor/accountability partner has removed so much stress from my life and has allowed me to see outcomes I never thought possible! I still have a long way to go to my ultimate goals, but I’m in such a better place! Thank you for sharing! Judy

    Hi Lisa! A marvelous Monday to you and the team. This is so much needed for me at the moment. I’ve been thinking about not going broken again for a while now, as I’m close being broke, paying service fee on my checking account every month. I’ve been out of job for the past seven months. I’ve, however, been searching, applying and interviewing for jobs, but yet to secure one. I chalked this up to the fact that I’m an immigrant and often saying yes to the “would you need sponsorship for a work visa” question. I’m a journalist and audio producer by profession, and I don’t want to go broken again. Any advice for me? I’d greatly appreciate. Thanks.

    Lisa,
    Whew! Let me first start by saying thank you because we as women have been taught that our husbands should be or have the information about money. We weren’t taught that women should know and practice as well. Now, we love our men for knowing about money and investing but women should know as well. As you said it is a freeing experience! We as women can be free, grow and invest too.

    I want to join. I have just about thrown in the towel; resorting to getting buy and holding on to what I have at the moment. Now considering my age, I feel time is getting very short to build wealth, questioning having enough money for life care and totally dismissing any notion of legacy. My question: is it too late for someone like me?

    Lisa,
    Love this message. As a woman growing up I was always told to have My Own money. A stash for me in case something happens. As soon as I could I started talking to my son about money and how it is not evil, it’s good. The more you have the more you can do good in the world, not only for others but for yourself. Good reminder for me to start talking to smarter people than I on the subject.
    Thank You!

    Similar to you Lisa, I grew up with that “I am broke mentality”. Even the person I chose to marry is always “broke”. Which ultimately means the same for me. I will make the money but cannot keep it and/or grow it. I just feel stuck!!!!

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I actually feel liberated from this, because my sister thinks I watch my money too much because I say “No” to certain things or I question the price of something. I am in debt and desire to be debt free so I can travel more and contribute more to my mission projects. Those things are important to me and that’s why I am “tight” with my money as she put it! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to be even more bold to say “no” and to get my team to allow me to fulfill those desires!

    Watching your videos give me inspiration, your employer is your investor, I never thought about it that way; that was my “Aha” moment. My financial journey is starting from being in debt in which I want to get out, but it seems like the income working with an employer is not working for handling this. My financial goal is to be debt free and use the employer as my investor to build my families generational wealth and find other ways of getting multiple streams of income. I don’t currently have a financial team I trust bust after hearing that this is great to have, I must get on, but where would I get that from? Thank you so much for all the insights and looking to forward to sharing, learning, and growing!

    I’v asked for help with money, asked how to invest or how to make me better with the little I had. Believe me questions were asked, and all I got were learn to save, put $5 away, just candid response. If I could some day share my story you’ll understand where I’ve been and how I’ve tried to work hard for my family. I’d like to continue to watch your videos and learn.

    Thank you for letting me be part of you.
