You Are A Badass At Making Money Book Review

You Are A Badass At Making Money Book Review

Have you read You Are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero yet?

 

 

I finally got the book, You are a Badass at Making Money, on Audible the other day and I’ve listened to it THREE TIMES.

 

You guys. Everything I’ve been practicing she says it. You gotta adjust your attitude. Gratitude is the mother of it all. If you share your gratitude, good things will come. Because you’re attune to the universe and the universe responds accordingly. If you’re angry all the time, your life is going to be miserable. If you choose to find goodness, and appreciate even the smallest thing, the universe will respond in kind.

 

She says it a lot more eloquently.

 

Jen also has a lot of interesting stories to share her different experiences with gratitude, negative thoughts, and dealing with fear, anxiety, and overwhelming situations.She tells a story about finding her ideal housing situation. Well, the neighborhood. She managed to find a place in her budget in an area she totally couldn’t afford. I’ve had this happen to me too. And with every word, every chapter, all I could think was,

 

“Yes. When good things happen to me, it’s because I’ve been doing exactly this.”

 

The problem I was left with at the end of the book (probably because it was the audio version and not the book) were the end of chapter lessons. It wasn’t that they were bad lessons; only that I had to stop what I was doing, find a pen, and do it. But of course I was usually commuting or walking the dog during those moments. It wasn’t easy to fit the practice in. I would pause the book and try to remember what she said… this is partially why I’ve listened to it three times. 

 

I needed a journal to go along with this book. Something I could fill out in the morning or evening. Something I carried around with me. I needed something I could print on demand as I needed additional pages.

 

So I made a money mindset empowerment journal, because that’s what I do.

 

Here’s the thing: You Are A Badass At Making Money didn’t actually teach me anything new. It merely reinforced everything I already believed, and practiced. But that’s a good thing. I regularly tell my clients (and my mom) that I have all the answers. You are a Badass at Making Money just proved it to me. 

 

But lately, my practice has faltered. Sometimes life gets in the way, or you let it. When I don’t maintain my practice, I can immediately see and feel the difference. So after listening to You Are a Badass At Making Money, I knew I needed to figure out a way to be more consistent about my gratitude practice. I needed to hear all of this again. And again. And again.

 

I’ve made a twenty 21 day gratitude journal before and it is effective. But it is more general towards just practicing gratitude, not refocusing your money mindset. Plus, when you’re making a lifestyle change, 21 days isn’t enough. (if you’d like to try though, it’s in the Millennial Life Skills Vault and its FREE!)

 

As a Millennial Life Skills Coach, it’s my duty to have an actively engaged and empowered money mindset. If I can’t do it for myself, how can I possibly get my clients to that same space?

 

If you know the magic that happens when you flex your gratitude and faith muscles and make life happen, instead of waiting for life to happen, nothing in this book is going to take away from your understanding. But it will reinforce what you’ve been doing and I gotta tell you; that feels nice.

 

If you haven’t yet experienced the magic of truly practicing gratitude, read this book. This book, You are a Badass at Making Money, and her first one, You Are A Badass. It will probably rock your world.

This blog post, and Jen Sincero’s book is the universe reaching out to you, letting you know there is another way. If you’re reading this, then you’re ready to answer that call.

Tips for changing your money mindset so you can be a badass at making money

 

Watch your mouth

 

The words you think and the words you say have a direct correlation to how you feel. And they encourage or discourage likewise events from unfolding. If you’re only complaining about how much you hate your job, your job is totally going to suck.

 

On the flip side, if you hate your job, but you find 3 things to be grateful for anyway, your mindset will shift and it won’t be so tedious. The work will be the same, but you will have changed.

 

Believe in your worth

 

You are worth more than the sum of your parts. You are more than one chapter in the history of your narrative. Wanting for things to change is not equal to believing things are changing. If we’re going to wait around for things to change (like Aaron Burr – and see how that turned out?) two things will absolutely happen: 1) We won’t know how to handle the situation (like Burr) or 2) We don’t recognize the opportunity when it finally arrives.

 

Pay it Forward

 

What can you do right now? When my mind is starting to crowd with all the things that need doing, I check myself and think: What are three things I’m grateful for right now?

 

Whenever possible, I make sure the people around me know that I appreciate them because of their work, their honesty, their commitment, etc. And I never keep my gratitude to myself if I can share it outloud.

 

What can you do next?

 

If you want to be a badass at making money, buy her book. It’s great. Can’t recommend it enough.

 

Click here to learn more about the Money Mindset Empowerment Journal. It was originally created for myself, but when I noticed how much it really helped to have my thoughts written down, I knew I needed to share it. It comes with over twenty pages of affirmations, journal entries, lists, and more.

What Kind of Store Should You Open on Shopify as a Side Hustle?

What Kind of Store Should You Open on Shopify as a Side Hustle?

Quiz: Why kind of store should you open as a side hustle?

Side hustles seem to be the only way to make additional funds. Face it, as millennials, we’ve been given the short stick for economic growth. We’ve been told to stop eating avocado toast so we can afford homes at skyrocketing prices, never mind the outrageous interest being earned on degrees that barely allow for entry level jobs. The fact is, we need more money.

 

I’ve written a lot about side hustles, and have interviewed a variety of people with different ways of earning money, and have come across my favorite way to make an additional income.

 

Shopify.

 

Shopify is an ecommerce platform that allows you to start your own online store. With reasonable monthly fees (no contracts required) and tons of support from forums, blog posts, and other resources, Shopify has helped over 500,000 stores make over 40 Billion dollars and create that additional income we all desperately need.

Every month, dozens of new ideas come out, just waiting for people like you to build a community and store around.

 

Shopify integrates with dozens of other places like Amazon, Wish, Pinterest, Wanelo, so you can expand your sales reach.

You can sell pretty much anything, but if you’re not sure what to sell or where to start, take the quiz below. You’ll find out the best type of store for you to start on Shopify, plus a swipe file of all the steps you need to set it up to make your first sale.

How I got my First Viral Pin using Tailwind

How I got my First Viral Pin using Tailwind

Side Hustle Series: How I Got My First Viral Pin Using Tailwind

There are so many different steps to blogging. The best bloggers usually look so professional it’s hardly any wonder that they’re not millionaires. And quite a few of them are. If you look closely, they’re incredibly organized, use video, and pay hundreds of dollars a year for different tools. What you often won’t see, is the team of people supporting their photography, recipes, and content creation and marketing.

 

And then, there’s the rest of us bloggers – the ones who try to be our own version of professional while still maintaining that sense of individualism. We grab at ideas, write whatever comes, and hope something sticks. To put it simply, we’re bootstrapping. 

I’ll be honest with you – I fall into the second category. When I started blogging I was desperate to get some traffic to my blog and I came across a great idea: make a round up of my favorite pins.

You’ve seen these before; they’re very popular among food bloggers. But I don’t blog about food, so I had to find something else. And then it occurred to me: 30 day challenges. It falls nicely within my niche of life skills, but is broad enough to attract a wide audience.

 

I put 30 of my favorite 30 day challenges on my blog, and used 7 or 8 different pins  to break up the list of links.


I also created my own pin for the blog post.

And then, after it was published, I logged into Tailwind and pinned all of the available images to over 30 group boards. More than once.

 

 

And you know what? It worked.

 

This one post drives more visitors to my blog than any other. And when it went viral, I could hardly believe it!

For about a week, I got more traffic to my site than I ever had before. Then it started to taper off. But looking back, I notice that daily I get the most traffic to that blog.

 

I absolutely know that using Tailwind to schedule my pins helped immensely. It let me space out each pin so I didn’t flood all of those group boards. It also allows you to repin them multiple times. Sometimes pins take off, sometimes they don’t.

 

(I am an affiliate for Tailwind – if you click on one the links and sign up I may earn a commission at no cost to you. Tailwind is for sure my favorite blogger’s tool and I’m so happy to be able to share it with you today.)

 

Now, is Tailwind completely responsible for the virality of the blog post? Not entirely, no. It takes people interested in the content to repin and visit the post in order for it to have that virality requirement. But it allowed me to reach a much larger audience than I would have been able to do myself. Instead of spending hours and hours EVERY DAY repinning my pins, Tailwind does it for me. I schedule pins once or twice a week, and then spend a couple of hours on Pinterest in my free time because I just love Pinterest.

 

Tailwind also offers a free trial. Your first 100 pins are free to schedule so you can get an idea of how it works. If you love it, you can sign up for the monthly or annual plan. If you’re not ready to make a commitment, there are still some features you can use. We’ll talk about that in a bit.

 

Some tips on making a viral pin:

 

Great content – I know you’ve heard it a thousand times, but it’s true. Providing real value is the best way to get people to visit your blog. For me, rounding up some of my favorite challenges provided value to those looking to change their lifestyles.

 

 

Several Pinnable Images – The most common pin size is about 1100×705. It shows really well in Pinterest’s feed. But the text also needs to be readable, you need a great headline or title, and it should be pretty and eye catching. I make at least two for each blog post. For the one that went viral, I had eight pins.

I keep to two or three different templates and just edit the text and background accordingly. That way they feel similar because they fit within my brand, its less work, but they’re still unique.

 

The more images you have available for pinning, the more opportunity for the pinning. So I suggest making at least 3 pinnable images for each blog post. It’s a lot of work, but I’ve noticed that any post I’ve posted more than one pin, tends to get a lot more traffic.

 

Group Boards – If you’re only pinning stuff to your own boards, you’re missing out on a great opportunity for others to see your pins. The name of the game is to get others to pin your pins and they’ll get a better chance of that if your pins are going to group boards. Once you’ve found group boards, make sure you follow the group rules so you don’t get kicked out. Nobody likes a spammer. Also make sure you occasionally share pins from the group boards you’re apart of. This is important because it keeps the board healthy and encourages more pins from that board to show up in the feeds of other pinners. (Which means your pins will inevitably see a boost.)

Do you need some group boards to join?

You can try searching on pingroupie.com but it hasn’t been updated in nearly a year.

I have a list of group boards I’m currently accepting new contributors for. All you have to do is follow my Pinterest profile, and then fill out this google form. I check it about once a week, so once you sign up just look out for your invitation!

 

Tailwind Tribes – Yes, back to tailwind. Tailwind has this really amazing tool called Tribes. You can join these tribes and submit your pins to them, and others in the tribe will repin your pins for you. They largely exist on reciprocation – usually pin for pin or pin for 2-4 pins. The people who share your pins are the ones who will make to go viral. This is a great place to start that potential.

 

Tailwind Tribes are free! You only need an account but you don’t need a subscription.

Just sign up here to get started.

 

Of course I highly recommend a subscription – you can do a monthly or a yearly and I promise you the yearly subscription is absolutely worth it. If I could only buy one tool for my business a year, it would be the yearly subscription to Tailwind. With the monthly subscription you get a certain number of scheduled pins each month and they cap out at 400 a month, which is about 13/day. I pin about 75-100 a day. And it has truly made all the difference in my business and traffic to my site. A solid 90% of my traffic comes from Pinterest.

 

 

I have a Tribe you can join called The Millennial Life. It’s a lifestyle tribe for millennial bloggers. I ask that you repin as many pins as you share and know that I regularly go through to check who is pinning and who is not. You’ll get one warning before your removed if you’re pinning but not sharing.

 

If you pin consistently using these tips, you’ll start to see your blog traffic spike, and take off. I hope you’ll share your results with me! I love to celebrate successes!
