Activity 20: Break Free From the Past

We all grew up with different beliefs and attitudes toward money. Childhood money beliefs may not be a problem, unless and until you are trying to operate a business, especially if you are acting out your old beliefs. If this is happening to you, take some time to reflect on beliefs you hold.
— Lynn Grodzki

Here are a few of my old ones to get you started:

•I don’t have the right skills for this -- I don’t even balance my checkbook; how can I run a business?

•Nobody taught me – I didn’t learn this in grad school (the exact opposite, in fact)

•People won’t  like me -- I don’t want to be seen as a cruel, heartless, money-grubber

•What if . . .  I tell someone my fee and they get upset?  I can’t fill my caseload/price people out?  I under cut myself and I get stuck with a bunch of low-paying clients?
