Is Worrying About Money Keeping You Up At Night?

Anyone who is going through a career crisis worries about money at some point.  If you seem to worry about money much more than you would like – here’s something that may help you shift into a more balanced perspective about money…


Do you believe that your relationship with money was developed in your childhood?  Do you believe that those beliefs may still be running the show with how you relate to money today?


This concept and more are introduced by my friend Ellen Rogin at her recent TedX talk.  Ellen is a CPA, CFP®  and an Abundance Activist® – those are fancy credentials that let you know that she is a highly experienced financial advisor who is chock full of “left-brain” credentials (MBA, CPA, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™).  She balances that professional training with her “right-brain” know how (balancing values, big picture ideas, meditation and a sense of humor).


Ellen is a nationally-known expert on living a life of success and prosperity and building wealth. She speaks to audiences around the country on creating success and abundance in their lives and in the lives of their children.  In addition to all that she is also the NY Times bestselling co-author of Picture Your Prosperity:  Smart Money Moves to Turn Your Vision into Reality.


In this brief video Ellen shares tips as well as a simple exercise on how you can have a breakthrough about your relationship with money – PLUS – she also teaches you how to break the cycle of bestowing your limited money beliefs onto your children.  Through this video you can help your kids have a healthy relationship with money as well!


I hope you enjoy this video and that it helps you sleep with less worry about money…

  2. Job Security
  3. Opportunities to use skills/abilities
  4. Relationship with immediate supervisor


Are you surprised that compensation/pay was ranked #1? ;-)  Well, I wasn’t!


I also was not shocked to read in the report that survey participants reported a significant gap in actual satisfaction related to money and opportunities to use skills/abilities.


Let me explain why I am not shocked in the least – in fact, why I think the results are actually predictable given the actual lack of satisfaction our workforce seems to have.
