Today, I’m sharing an interview I did with Dr. Amanda Barrientez—aka The Money Healer—founder of NFA Money and an expert at teaching entrepreneurs how to break through their unconscious money blocks. First up, Amanda asks me about my own money blocks, and I share how more money equals different problems and what strategies I’ve used to protect the wealth I’ve built. Amanda then asks me to share some of my tips on being time-efficient, and we discuss the importance of being aware of your hourly rate and the power of delegating so you can spend more time in your zone of genius.

Next, I share my journey into entrepreneurship and e-commerce, discussing how I moved from losing our family home to foreclosure to building a seven-figure business. Amanda then asks me to share three tips to help entrepreneurs get to six figures faster, and my advice is to hire faster, keep close tabs on your numbers, and stay away from the Comparison Monster. And we close the episode by looking in more depth at how to be intentional with your time, from using my 15-Minute Hustle model, to scheduling time to relax, to always giving yourself time to think before buying because nothing can’t wait twenty-four hours.

Would you hire a surgeon to give you a booster shot? No, you wouldn’t. You would not hire a surgeon at their cost and level to give you a booster shot, that can be someone else. And so, every time I’m looking at a task, something that has to be done, something needs to be done, my question is, ‘Do I absolutely have to do this task?’”

I talk a lot about the law of attraction. So it’s like, the higher your level of energy, the more easily you’re attracting easier money your way. And it’s impossible to attract your way what you love when you’re doing what you hate.”

Don’t compare your chapters to somebody else’s, you’re at a different journey. You have different resources, you have different support, you have different hair! Like, it literally does not matter. Your journey is never going to be the same as someone else.”

Set a timer for even one whole day, and then every fifteen minutes, it goes off, and you write down the exact tasks you did for the last fifteen minutes. It doesn’t take very long. But once you see that, I think you’re going to be completely shocked at really how you do spend your time and what you could take off of your plate in order to give yourself an instant raise.”
