If you have heard but have no idea what it is to have a money mindset for success in business, you are not the only one! It seems that it has been a popular term, especially on social media, but just a few know what it is, why it is important to unlock profits and longevity in your business.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.-Alice Walker
What is Money Mindset?
A money mindset is the conjunction of beliefs, ideas, thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors about your finances (Personal finances and the money decisions with your business). In other words, it’s the perspective you have over money that overrides your behavior with it.
For instance, Julia, a member of the IMM Space, a mom of 4, wife, and business owner, often struggled to keep up with her finances but didn’t represent an issue.
She lived a comfortable life when working 9-5, as in her words, “As long as I had the paycheck, I knew I was going to be fine,” but things changed when she had to stay home with the kids and started her business.
During her first year of business, she was determined to make the business work. She hired coaches, created the website, designed her programs, etc… But at the end of that first year, only more debt was accumulated, and the money that came in went back in a matter of weeks.
When entering the second year of her business, Julia realized how often she would find herself thinking that being a business owner was not a way to create financial security for her or her family.
And that was when she came to the IMM Space where she found how broken and wounded her perspective – Or money mindset – over making and keeping money as a female entrepreneur and how it was sabotaging her business success.

Symptoms of an unhelpful money mindset?
There are different ways to identify if you have an unhelpful money mindset or are on your way to aligning your mind with your body and bank account.
Today, you are going to learn the most common symptoms we found with the different clients I’ve worked helping them break out of the financial struggle cycle.
- The constant narrative that you never have enough money
- The continued avoidance of talking about money due to failed past business or personal investments.
- Kicking the possibility out of taking care of your family the way you want to because of money.
- When it comes to pricing and offers, you shine away because it feels uncomfortable.
- You are waiting to have more money to change how you look at money, but the wait has become the last 10 years of your life.
If you are a female entrepreneur, your business growth depends on your mental development with money, you simply cannot afford not to expand your points of view with money.
How does it affect your current results with money?
When a female entrepreneur holds a broken money mindset, her journey in personal finance becomes a bumpy road. She encounters money block after money block that triggers the unhealthy response to deal with money and make money decisions.
When you become a business owner, every belief and idea about money gets more profound in the subconscious mind. You must become more effective in managing your resources while building your brand (There is only one of you).
This plays against the growth of your money mindset as you become more susceptive to automatize what you already “know” about money and focus on what is new to learn, which is “Get clients” and make money.
But, Money Mindset work for female entrepreneurs is about how she shifts and overcomes her own money blocks to allow her business to generate profit free of guilt, shame, unworthiness, and every negative feeling holding her back from fulfilling her life’s vision.
