Heal your Money Story & Attract Abundance Despite the Fear with Denise Duffield-Thomas

Denise Duffield Thomas Pin


Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.

With all the videos and articles that discuss the importance of the right money mindset, and my own experiences, I have to agree. In this episode, we’re talking all things money mindset with Denise Duffield Thomas.

Success happens when we work hard in an intelligent, focused way with our efforts directed in the right direction and we make the best use of our resources and the opportunities that come our way but there’s something else that’s just as important – our money story. What it is that we believe about our ability to make and grow money; if you grew up poor, you would have a different story from someone who maybe grew up without ever having to worry about money. If you were raised to be cautious with money, you’re probably more risk averse than others regardless of the health of your bank account. Our childhood, our experiences, our parent’s experiences, culture, community, gender, race— all of it has an impact on our money mindset, and who better to explain it all than Denise Duffield-Thomas, a woman who has built a successful business, became a millionaire by the age of 36 and all of it despite coming from an environment that was not very supportive of big ideas and dreams and where money wasn’t freely available.

She set herself a goal (she was already 30 at the time) and she decided that she was going to become a millionaire by 35 and of course she did it. Lucky for us, she shares her story and how she got to the finish line during our conversation.
