More Money, More Problems is the Biggest Misconception

by D'Arcy Benincosa

More Money, More Problems is the Biggest Misconception with Elena S Blair and D'Arcy Benincosa on The Play It Brave Podcast

Calling all women! Have you ever felt like the dream of being rich is for men? The stigma around wealthy women is still a very real thing in our society, and today fellow photographer and mastermind leader, Elena S Blair and I shed some light on why the “more money, more problems” belief is the biggest misconception. Take it from two wealthy women themselves: you have the right, and dare I say – duty – to break the cycle and step into your power as a money magician and we’re here to guide you every step of the way. Hit play!

Building YOUR OWN Business Blueprint:

You don’t have to follow the business blueprint of others in your industry. Learn from people who aren’t in your profession and apply those strategies in your own way.

Money is a Motivator:

If you don’t feel excited showing up for your clients, you might not be charging enough. If you feel undervalued or underpaid, you won’t be as motivated to do a good job.

Women Need to have Financial Independence:

Historically women didn’t make the money in their household or have any say in finances. This is still a very real problem in our society, and it’s important for women to know they have the power to generate their own wealth, have their own retirement accounts, and have a say in the saving and spending of their own income.

Your Worth is a Subconscious Belief:

We all start out charging small amounts, and eventually you get to a point that you’re getting better and burned out, and you realize you’re worth more so you raise your prices.

Money Mindset and Your Ability to Earn is a Consistent Practice:

It’s like exercising or a relationship. You have to set aside time for it or you won’t get to where you want to go.

We Are Not Taught to Be Rich:

“More money, more problems.” Is not an excuse to not make more money. It’s your responsibility to learn how to be savvy with your money.

Change is Scary by Instinct, but Required for Success:

You will leave people behind as you become the highest version of yourself. And that’s okay.

How to Find The Coach for You:

It’s necessary for businesses to bring in consultants, mentors, and coaches. This is maybe even more important than getting a college degree. Make sure you find the right person for you.

  • Do your due diligence and make sure that you align with them
  • Make sure they’ve achieved the results their selling – if they’re saying they can get you to 6-figures, then they should have multiple years with a 6-figure income under their belt.
  • They should have the tools and knowledge to help you get to where you want to go – you just need to make sure you’re clear on where that is first.
