There are people searching to find you and saying, ‘Take my money’!!!!
But are you putting yourself in a position to ‘be found’? More on this in a sec, but let me tell you why this is important:
In the mid-2000s I was at the point of bankruptcy when sh*t hit the fan for me. I had accrued almost $100k in mostly credit card debt because of poor lifestyle choices and bad investments.
It was a shameful moment when I looked in the mirror and realized what I had gotten myself into. But it was also the moment when I took 100% ownership of the mistakes I had made and commit to paying it all off, even if it took me the rest of my life.
Over the next year, I created my first online business and was able to pay ALL of it off within a year. Want to know how I did it?
I created my first online business and used SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to rank in the first 3 spots on Google. I set up accounts with...

I've got an awesome training coming your way from a very special person!
The other day I had a chat with my friend Hana Dhanji, who is not just a mindset coach, but one who uses NPL, psychology and human behavior to help Wall Street traders master their emotions under high pressure situations.
Hana has an incredible story. She grew up in absolute poverty but her mother fought to get her out of the country and help her break the generational cycles and give her a chance at thriving in life.
She worked her way through insurmountable obstacles to get her law degree, then she travelled the world and worked in Geneva, Dubai, London, New York City and Toronto.
But then she realized she had been chasing a lifestyle that she didn't even want, and got off the dopamine treadmill to do what she really loves.
I've interviewed her 2 times in the past, the first was before I had a podcast and she...
Today on Mindset Hackers I bring you one of the top professional mindset coaches that I know. She has a podcast that ranks in the top 1.5% in the world, she has also been voted as one of the top Mompreneurs by Yahoo Finance and today she sits down with me to talk about the journey and the mindset of a true entrepreneur that makes a living doing what she loves to do.
Jamie is also a member of the Elite Mastermind group, the top mindset and personal development mastermind in the world and part of my Elite series of interviews with some of the members.
Jamie Kullman was born to be an entrepreneur, slinging car parts out of her garage right after high school. Then she became an Amazon affiliate, a model, then she became a Podcaster inspiring and empowering moms to create sources of revenue.
Then she became a professional mindset and business coach and that is how our paths have crossed.
The path of entrepreneur is no surprise: sometimes it looks all glossy and badass but what you don't...
On this episode of Mindset Hackers, I chat with Former Wall Street Lawyer, now an Executive Coach Hana Dhanji and we talk about the trappings of 'chasing success', the dopamine treadmill, and how to get off.
So many of us high performers try to control outcomes yet we miss out on the signs that the Universe is leaving right in front of us. We are always in a constant state of evolution and therefore what we know or can see at any given point, doesn't always give us the answers we need, but we need to trust that it will come into focus.
Hana has also been on the treadmill of success in her own path and she shares her backstory with us of chasing to become a Wall Street Lawyer and work in some of the biggest cities such as New York and Dubai, but realized that she was out of alignment.
Your beliefs around money have everything to do with your financial success later on in life.
When you were a child, in your most malleable state, you are absorbing your beliefs about life from the people and situations that you experience.
You are literally being programmed by your parents, by advertising, by your peers, even by the financial system.
You were told to save, save, save. Kirsten and I agree that this teaches people to live in scarcity. To 'live within your means'.
True abundance is not living constricted, it is about expansion.
Kirsten and I talk about some of the things that we hear from our parents in our childhood that create our money blocks and money limiting beliefs.
In this new episode of Mindset Hackers Podcast Kirsten also talks about Grow and Arrow, her financial consulting firm, where she not only advises financially but helps her clients remove money blocks and limiting beliefs around money, and you don't often find that.
Kirsten is also a master of using...
Imagine a door in front of you.
You don't exactly know what is behind the door, you think there could be opportunity, but also there could be danger.
There is a 5% chance of danger and +60% chance of opportunity.
But you fear what will happen if you walk through that door, instead of the opportunity that might unfold.
So you stay where you are and don't walk through.
𝘽𝙚𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙙𝙤𝙤𝙧 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙛𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙨 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚:
Feeling like and imposter.
Running out of money.
Not having enough time.
It not being perfect.
𝘽𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙨𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙗𝙚 𝙤𝙥𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙮 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚:
Making more money.
Gaining more confidence.
Meeting people that lift you up.
Learning new things.
Finding your voice.
Letting go of your triggers.
Serving more people.
So, back to the fears, 95% of those worries will never happen in the first place.
And the 5% of the time that the do? What's the worse that can happen?
The real danger lies in staying in the same place, where you aren't safe anyway, because its not what is behind the door...
Myths of Hustle and Grind culture:
Busy-ness is the same as productivity
Time is money
I have to work hard to succeed
If it's urgent I need to act all frantic
I don't have enough time
What is Busy-ness? It's a feeling of stress, overwhelm, lack of time, rushing around, all associated with trying to GSD.
The crazy thing is you can still feel Busy-ness even when you aren't GSD.
And GSD can be done more effectively without Busy-ness.
If you want to always be stressed out running full speed on the hamster wheel, missing out on life, always chasing, count me out H&G culture.
It's time to break through some of the myths of the hustle and grind culture and take back your own life before you spend the entire time on the dopamine treadmill and miss out on all the beauty in life.
Check out me and Bobby Dysart on the Student of Intention Podcast where we go deep on so many mindset topics.

Success to a lot of people means:
High paying job.
The career that parents wanted them to have.
A certain amount of money or net worth.
Nice car and house.
Title or status.
We have all been condition from when we were young, perhaps not always intentionally, but in some cases extremely targeted (advertising, media, social media and culture) on who to 'be'.
The other problem is all those things listed above are not permanent and can be taken away quickly.
We either feel like we are lacking if we aren’t there,
Or we get there and fear losing it,
Or we keep chasing after we get there.
Don’t get me wrong, those are fine things to aspire to if that is truly what you want at your core.
But start by asking what it is that you truly want aside from the influence of everything we've been told to want in life.
For me, it’s freedom, and having lots of money doesn’t...
