Create Consistent Cash Flow and Feel Financially Confident

In episode 40 of Fresh Tracks we have author and money coach Rev. Karen Russo. Karen shares her insights on making money and reveals why some of us struggle to accomplish our financial goals and others don’t. Did you think starting your business would change your financial picture? Karen’s says tapping into your unlimited abundance calls for a little bit of courage and recognizing the importance of being able to give and receive. Understand that each person is a center for prosperity – even you – and your job is to know this and remove beliefs that prevent that flow of money from coming to you.

You may have heard that you have to be a generous giver to be a generous receiver. Karen shares that giving includes giving your attention to your money and not hiding from it and shares some best practices on how to incorporate this into our daily lives.  In this week’s show we talk about the importance of including money in your spiritual practice and not separating it into a stand-alone section of our life.

In episode 32 of Fresh Tracks I speak with Danielle Watson, founder of The Purse Process.

Danielle is a perfect example of this – she has taken her degree in archaeology and anthropology, a successful mobile yoga business owner, and the willingness to break the mold into becoming a successful coach. Danielle shares that reintegrating our many parts into one allows us to use our skills and knowledge in an unconventional way, which we call creating Fresh Tracks.

Danielle took her purse process across the country and helps people take a deep, no-nonsense view of how their actions are affecting their results and how their beliefs are guiding their actions. And yes, she does all this by going through your purse! In this week’s show Danielle also shares her adventures doing her first Ted Talk and talks about her belief that every single person has the skills and knowledge that can be used in unconventional ways.

Danielle Watson is a global provocateur, professional muse, choose your own adventurer, and the creator of The Purse Process®.

Danielle’s Purse Process® is a pioneering tool that applies tried and true principles of archeology in a fresh way, placing a decidedly modern and feminine spin on this dusty science. The Purse Process® is part of the unique tool kit Danielle uses as she guides women through restoring their core confidence, mentors them in achieving self-actualization, and teaches them how to turn their personal quirks into high-value professional assets.

Danielle’s uncommon mix of enthusiasm, personal strength, femininity, and vulnerability has made this unlikely anthropologist a popular, pint-sized inspiration to women everywhere.
