Episode 019: Prosperity & Mindset…how your thoughts, beliefs and emotions impact your finances


Many entrepreneurs struggle financially. Whether you can’t save money, aren’t earning enough or don’t know what a P&L is, my guest Joan Sotkin is here to help. Joan is a prosperity & mindset mentor and speaker. She’s THE expert when it comes to understanding how emotions learned in early childhood can affect a person’s earning capacity as an adult. For over 25 years she’s helped entrepreneurs stop struggling financially. And, listen, she knows about struggle. She went from operating a business that was generating the equivalent of $50K / month in today’s dollars to bankruptcy.

Not only will she share that story with you, she’s also going to tell you how mindset and emotions have a massive impact on your financial health and what you need to do to – very specifically – with your thoughts and actions so that you can get on the road to prosperity.
