Money does not equal love.

It can be so many forms of chasing your emotional tail when it comes to MONEY and your creative career. Each accomplishment pushing a key part of your creative vision further away. Or so it seems.

When in doubt, learn more.

There may come a point in your money journey where the overwhelm kicks in, the path divides, and the step forward becomes uncertain. The best part of the financial journey is that it is one that grows in strength as it grows in wisdom. As you learn more, you gain more. As you gain more, you learn more. These are siblings to keep you company on your path.

Trust the exhale.

Say, you plop a big chunk of change down on something you love, that vintage album you could never find, that apartment you swore you could never afford, that dream trip that finally felt right. ike they are the new normal.

Build what you wish you could see.

Stretch your imagination to create what does not yet exist. As a creative, this is probably something you do all the time, creating sandcastles in the sky and magical creatures that never walked the earth. Yet when it comes to our money, we somehow think that this mental superpower, our imagination, is suspect when telling us more is coming than we know.

Trust yourself.

After the learning lesson of life, it can be easy to second-guess yourself, especially when it comes to MONEY. This loop of self-judgement builds an environment where you may feel your choices are not the best. Your instincts are not to be trusted. Your impulses, too impulsive.
