4 Dimensions of the Life and Income You Want From the Money Map

The first step in creating your Money Map to Freedom™ is to get very clear on what you really, really, really, REALLY want your life to look like.  And not just at one level, but at 4 distinct dimensions.

THIS is where most people sabotage themselves when it comes to designing the lives they really want.  And I’ve done it too. It can be scary to dream into what we really want, so we compromise.  The Money Map™ process of lifestyle design allows you to ease into it and that begins with identifying what you really want on a spectrum from minimum to be happy, preferred if you could afford it, to no limits, and finally, the absolute reality of now.

This article will explain each of these 4 dimensions more fully so you can begin to feel into the truth of your reality, thereby creating the greatest likelihood of actually having it.

Using the Money Map to Design your Life and Get Paid to Play

The Money Map to Freedom™ process is all about lifestyle design. You designing the way you work and get paid to be in full alignment with your life, who you are, and how you truly want to be in the world.  Or, in simpler terms … the Money Map is about you getting paid to play.

There are two phases to the Money Map process for designing your life so you can get paid to play however you like to play.  And leave behind the security of your steady paycheck with a plan you can count on to support you.

First, clarity.

What do you really, really, really, REALLY want your life to look like. Not just one-dimensionally, but all along the spectrum from minimum to be happy to preferred if you could afford it to no limits.  And finally, where does your now fit into that spectrum?

Once you know where your now is in relationship to the rest of the points on the spectrum, you can map out a path with the straightest line possible to get from exactly where you are now to exactly where you want to go next.

It’s nearly impossible to chart a straight line between two points you can’t see, so that’s where we need to start.

But before we can get into charting the path, you need one more bit of clarity.

Who are you, really?  And how do you love to get paid? What combination of factors has work feel like play to you?

I’ve identified 8 entrepreneurial archetypes that almost everyone who wants to serve or create in the world falls into and you can mix and match to create the ideal income model for you that truly does allow you to get paid to play.

Once you’ve got your Money Map numbers clear (where you are now and where you are going next) and you know the mix of Entrepreneurial Archetypes that are most true to you, you have clarity.

You’ll know exactly where you are now and exactly where you are going next. Now, you can chart the path from here to there.

Now, it’s time for certainty.

You’ve got the what down (which is the step MOST people skip when trying to build their income in alignment with their life), now it’s time for the how.

Yes, how in the heck are you going to do it? How are you going to get from where you are now — probably NOT having the life you really, really, really, REALLY want and maybe not even making enough money to support a life you don’t want, let alone the life you do want — to a life you absolutely LOVE making plenty of money along the way?

Once you know your what, the how is actually pretty easy.  Each of the Entrepreneurial Archetypes is keyed to a specific business model with knowable steps to take to get from where you are now to where you want to go.

The reason you don’t know how is you probably aren’t clear enough yet on the what to ask the right questions to get the how going in the right direction.

I’ve seen it time and time again — people try to dive into structuring how they’ll earn their income before they even know how much they really need to make and how they like to make it.

When that happens, you are either “successful” and find yourself stuck in a business model you really can’t stand, but have to keep doing because it’s “working” to earn you money, or you struggle.

If you are successful (in this context defined by earning plenty of money), you become addicted to the money you are bringing in. You can’t stop (the money is just too good), but you really hate the way it feels each time you do it because you didn’t have clarity on how you really like to get paid before you started.

And listen, if you think I mean that you are doing something bad for the money, I don’t. This success conundrum applies to anyone who is in the wrong business model for their unique Archetype Path.

I was a lawyer, serving clients with a very high-end estate planning service that the clients loved, but it was no longer the Entrepreneurial Archetype that was right for me and each new client I took on felt like it was taking something from my soul. If you are in the wrong model/utilizing the wrong archetype (for you), you know exactly what I mean.

On the flip side, if you are a more sensitive type, you won’t be able to be successful by using an Entrepreneurial Archetype and Archetype Path that isn’t aligned with you and where you are.

You may do all the right things, but they simply won’t seem to pay off with the same results.  You will wonder why “it” isn’t working.   But, of course it’s not.  If you are a sensitive being and not aligned, you won’t have results even if you are following all the “rules” for success.  Because there aren’t really rules, there’s simply truth and you aren’t aligned with your truth when you are using the wrong set of Entrepreneurial Archetypes.

You can read about the 8 Entrepreneurial Archetypes in this article.  And, start your own Money Map using this Money Map online tool.  Clarity is close at hand, and the exact steps on HOW to get from where you are now to where you want to go next are right around the corner.

What Happens When You Choose to Invest

Each and every time I have made a decision to invest in growing my business (or even in my own personal growth), a couple of things happen shortly thereafter.

First … something immediately comes up to make me question my decision. Usually, it’s something that impacts me financially. I’ve seen other folks say that they get impacted health-wise.

This time, what’s coming up is a huge unexpected investment I need to make in care for a family member that just about equals the investment I’ve committed to make in my business. Double gulp.

Of course that immediately has me rethinking whether I can afford to make the investment in my business.

But the truth is, I can’t afford NOT to make the investment. It’s what’s necessary to take things to the next level and I simply can no longer stay where I am.

The second thing that happens IF I maintain my commitment to moving forward, the resources I need show up. Every time.

It’s such a test of trust. And I personally have some big issues with trust. What about you?

So, I’m not entirely sure where the money is going to come from for the big investment at this very moment.

I was going to use some new credit that I had earmarked to start a new business, but now I’m going to be using that credit to pay for my family member’s care so I’ll need to find another source.

What I do know is that it will show up.

I choose to stretch.

It feels so gooooood when I do. Alive. Sure. Knowing I am on path to the next step of growth in my life and business. And I want that for you too.

The key is getting clear on what the next right investment is for you.

Here’s the criteria:

1. It’s the path to the exact next step for you.
(If you aren’t sure of your next step, consider our Money Map program, which will guide you to the exact next step for you based on your Money Map Numbers and Entrepreneurial Archetype.)
2. It’s a stretch.
3. It scares you just enough for you to feel your aliveness.


To your eyes (and heart) wide open life and business,

Who Is the Money Map NOT For?

Yesterday on the webinar, someone asked a very important question — who is this program NOT for?

The Money Map is not for you if you are committed to the false security provided by the old/current system.

I will teach you how to trust yourself and invest in yourself in ways that feel in total integrity to you, but may look unusual to those around you still stuck in old beliefs.

You will learn to leverage your credit score in the smartest way possible to access the resources necessary to fund your dreams and to use your retirement account to create real security for your future, which will likely result in you firing the financial advisor who doesn’t really know you and has you invested in a traditional, formulaic mix of stocks and bonds.

You will take true control of your financial future from a place of sovereignty rather than societal norms.

If you have a bad credit score already, you will forgive yourself for past mistakes and clean it up in the best way possible so you can start again and give yourself the benefit of those teachings.

During our time together, I will let you in on all I have discovered as I broke free of these realities and found what I now understand to be true security and liberation.

I will share my learnings of how to use the current system, not for personal gain, but for the collective gain (which does begin with your own well-being, education and care).

This is not for everyone.

It’s definitely “edgy” and many of the things I learned I would not have believed myself had I not experienced them.

As you know if you’ve been here a while and gone through the Accelerated Course, this is not just a program about money.  It’s a course in discovering what’s really most important to you, how you want to show up in the world, and discovering and leveraging resources that are even more valuable than money.

Yes, the Program will lead you to the money you need to have the life you want, but only if you are willing to let go of old, crustified beliefs around right and wrong, good and bad, easy and hard, simple and complex, love and hate, fight and surrender, money and value, enough and more — and instead find your own, deeper truths.

If you are, I’m ready to take you there. If you are not, that’s okay too.  I send you blessings and best wishes on your path.

Today is the last day to enroll in the last-ever LIVE delivery of the Money Map. If you’re ready, sign up here. 

If you know it’s for you but aren’t quite ready this time around, sign up here to be the first to know when we offer the program again.


Financial Freedom is a Lie – Experience Financial Liberation Today

2012-09-11 07.52.27

You’re probably sick and tired of wondering if you’ll experience the financial freedom you long for, especially if:

  • You’re stuck in a job because you need the money;
  • You’ve escaped the 9-5 wheel but you’re not quite making it financially;
  • You’re making good money, but not through sharing your Great Work and gifts with the world or you have to hide parts of yourself to keep earning what you need;
  • You’ve built your own successful business but feel trapped by it instead of inspired.

Financial freedom suggests that one day when you’ve saved enough money or invested in enough assets, then you’ll have freedom.  

Then, you can leave the job you hate, then you can stop working that business model that doesn’t work for you, then you’ll be able to feel good.  

Finally. Then.

Bullshit. The truth is that you have a sneaking suspicion that you’ll never have enough to be truly free. Not on your current trajectory. And, if you ever do, by the time you do, it’ll be too late to enjoy it and live this one precious life you’ve been given to the fullest.

Financial Liberation vs. Financial Freedom

In contrast to your never-ending quest for financial freedom, you can experience financial liberation right now.

No matter how much you’ve got saved for retirement (or don’t), no matter how much you have put away for a rainy day, or saved up to pass on to your kids, whether you’ve got $1 in the bank or $1,000,000, some simple shifts in your mindset can liberate you from the chase and allow you to live your best life starting today.

Isn’t that truly the freedom you are seeking? The freedom of knowing that you can make your life choices driven by what you truly want, seeing money as the fuel for your heart projects and creative dreams, rather than the compass that drives your life?

If so, it’s time to shift your chase for financial freedom into creating a true plan for financial liberation now.

Financial liberation happens when you know you can earn what you need, when you need it, on demand, doing meaningful work and being all of who you truly are.

When you’ve got this kind of certainty, you can work from anywhere, you don’t have to hoard resources in savings or retirement, and you can wake up every day totally tapped into your creativity and joy ready to serve with your very best gifts and be all of who you are in the process.

So, how do you actually reach this place I’m calling financial liberation?

Financial Liberation means you deeply know and trust (with a clear plan, not just based on a wing and a prayer) that all the resources you need are within reach and can be accessed at will.

It starts with absolute clarity about the “what” of the life you really want to live, getting into truth about what that NOW life costs you and how much time you really have to create it, what the NEXT life you want looks like, what it’ll cost to have it, and how much time you have to create it.

Then, we completely re-design your relationship to time, money and how you get paid.

You’ll know you are “there” when there’s no more “mind spin” around whether you have enough, are getting paid enough, are on the right track or are using your resources in the best way for the life you want to live.

You’ll reclaim all that wasted creative energy and KNOW with absolute clarity what you are doing, why you are doing it, what resources you need, how to access them, and be able to move forward with powerful (and often vulnerable) action that you are certain is totally right-aligned.

If you can feel the power in KNOWING so you can stop the mind spin once and for all, and know you’ve got a life plan to use your resources with absolute clarity in service to the life you are here to live, get started with our Money Map Life and Income Planning Series here.

Getting to know what’s really true for you and building your life and income on a foundation of truth is what sets you free – stop chasing financial freedom and step into financial liberation today.
