To me, freedom is having the time and money to do what you want, when you want. In today’s episode, I’ll chat to you about the secret source that I use with my clients to help them create their dream lifestyles. Let’s begin.


What does freedom mean?


So what exactly does freedom mean? Everyone has different definitions of success. Some people like status recognition, but for me, my biggest metric for success is the amount of freedom I have in my business and my life. Can I actually take holidays? Can I get the opportunity to go and pick my children up from school a couple of days a week? Can I take some time off and go and get my hair done? For me, success is about being able to have enough time and money to do what I want when I want, and most of my clients are the same. You can have plenty of money and very little freedom. If you were running a billion dollar business with 60,000 employees, not very good systems and support, and you worked 16 hours a day, well, you wouldn’t have much freedom. Or you could be on unemployment benefits and have all the time in the world and yet no money to actually do the things that you want.

Freedom in business is such a cool avenue to do this because when you are the boss, you get to control the amount of time that you spend on your business and you can also have a pretty strong influence over the amount of money that you earn. So let’s talk about how to actually go about that.


Why you need to get super clear about what you want


The first step is to get super clear about what you actually want. So when you say you wanna have time freedom, what does that mean? What are the specific things that you wanna be doing? Do you wanna be able to take your dog to the dog park midweek? Do you wanna be able to take three months off and not have to work at all? What does freedom actually look like for you? And when you think about money freedom, what does that actually look like for you? For some people feeling freedom is knowing that the bills will be paid every month, whereas for other people, financial freedom might mean that you can fly anywhere you want business class and stay in really luxury accommodation. So get super, super clear about what it is that you actually truly desire on day one of the three days to a new money mindset challenge that I mentioned earlier.

This is something we’ll actually be doing is diving in and starting to help you identify what you big desires in life are. What do you want from your business? What do you want from your life? So take some time, have a bit of a think about what that looks like to you now, and if you want a bit more support with this, make sure you come and join me inside the challenge.


Why you need to get super clear about what you want


The second thing that you have to do if you want to create more time and money freedom is do the money mindset work. Now, I know I sound like a bloody broken record about this, but there’s a good reason for it. I so strongly believe that the mindset work makes all the difference in the quality of your life. Here’s a truth bomb. If you don’t believe something is possible, you won’t be able to create it.

I spoke about this on an earlier episode of the podcast and credit for this goes to manifestation babe, who talks about the ladder of believability. And what the ladder of believability is about is determining where you sit in your belief framework around the possibility of a possible outcome. For example, if you are wanting to create a life where you have absolute freedom when it comes to your finances, where you have absolute freedom, when it comes to your time, do a little bit of a check-in and ask yourself, do you actually think it’s possible for someone who runs a business to have a life of complete freedom? ’cause if straightaway you think no, well, that’s where you’re sitting in a ladder of believability.

The next stage of the ladder is to determine if you believe that a particular outcome is possible for other people. So perhaps you might say, well, I do think it’s possible for a YouTube star, so I can see how it could be possible for some people, but it wouldn’t be possible for someone like me who runs a hairdressing salon or whatever it is that you might do. Check in where you sit on that. Do you think that the thing that you desire is possible for other people?

The next layer of the ladder of believability is, is it possible for me? So if you look at something and you say, yeah, I definitely believe that’s possible for other people, you might find that you are getting blocked here. I can totally see that that’s possible for them and them and them, but it’s not possible for me. So that’s the part of your mindset that you get to work on. And then once you’ve reached that point where you actually feel confident and say, yes, this is possible for me, you get to move into the next phase of the ladder of believability, which is, it is destined for me. Not just this is possible, but this is happening. The reason why this money mindset work is just so important. It literally is 90% of your success in business. You have to have the confidence and faith and deep belief in your inevitable success. And maybe you are not there now, but this is why it’s called money mindset work. You chip away and you chip away, and gradually you move further and further up the ladder of believability.


How doing the money mindset work with help you get more freedom


So the inevitable next question that you might have is, how do you actually do money mindset work? If I’m not at the place on the ladder of believability that I want to be, how do I get there? I’m launching my brand new course accelerator very soon, and inside this course, I’ll be sharing all of the money, mindset, tools, strategies, and frameworks that I use myself and that I use with my clients. I have never taught mindset to this level of detail before and I am so excited to launch this course out in the world. But if you want a bit of a taster of what’s possible inside accelerator, come and join the free challenge that I mentioned earlier. You can join via the link in the show notes and it’ll show you a little bit of what is possible and what this money mindset work looks like.

Your mindset is how you feel about money and what you believe you create. I know that sounds woo, but there’s actually a really practical side of this. It’s based in your subconscious programming and what your belief systems are. This work is really transformational, and I’m really, really excited to give you a bit of a taste of it inside the free challenge. So please make sure you do come and join. Now, coming back to the three strategies to create more freedom in your business, the final step in the process is implementing the practical strategies around freedom.


Implementing practical strategies around freedom


So first of all, you have to do the mindset work. You have to believe this is possible. I can start to create the financial freedom that I desire. I can actually start working four days a week instead of five days a week. I can actually go part-time in my business and still be able to create an amazing abundant income. I can take three months off and go and do a big trip because that’s what I desire. That’s what freedom looks like to me. It has to be the foundation, but then you need to take it into that next phase, which is implementing the practical strategies. So what are the strategies that you are going to implement to actually earn more money? What are the strategies that you are going to take to actually take downtime? They’re actually gonna start to cut back your hours. They’re gonna start taking off every Friday like you thought you would. There are steps that you need to put into place to start to create these freedoms, boundaries with clients carving out time in the calendar, you have to take those practical steps to start to see the vision coming to your reality.


I know some of this stuff sounds a little bit farfetched, but as someone who has helped hundreds of people to change their life through this work over the years, I can assure you it’s possible. And if it’s possible for other people, it’s possible for you that you have to do the work. You are a hundred percent responsible for your life, you’re responsible for your business, you’re responsible for your health, and you’re responsible for the decisions that you have to make. If you keep doing the same thing you’ve always done, you’ll likely keep getting the same thing you’ve always gotten. It does take doing things different and stepping outside your comfort zone to create a completely new reality for yourself to recognize that discomfort is part of this process.


So to recap today’s episode, there are three strategies you need to create more freedom in your business.

  1. Get super clear about what freedom actually looks like to you, when it comes to your time and your money.
  2. Do the money mindset work. Sound like a broken record, Clare, I will not stop going on about this, but you gotta do the money mindset work.
  3. Taking practical strategies to create the freedom that you desire, both in the space of creating more money and in the space of actually implementing your strategies around time freedom, what that looks like to you, setting the boundaries, carving out the time, making it happen. You are responsible for your business and your life.
