Melissa Houston / Amber Lilyestrom

“If we’re just talking about money right now, and it’s making you mildly uncomfortable in any way, shape, or form…  that would be a little bit of a spotlight that there’s a money mindset issue afoot.”

—  Amber Lilyestrom

My guest for this episode, Amber Lilyestrom, is the author of multiple books on building wealth and healing your money mindset.

“If there are certain people that you don’t want to talk about money with, if you hold back in communicating about money, if you dread the tax time of the year, if you are putting off looking at your spreadsheets and your numbers, if you don’t log into your bank account regularly, and you don’t know what’s going on there, those would be some highlights that there’s an opportunity for some growth and expansion as it relates to the money mindset,” Amber says.

And she is absolutely right.

Just as we should always be on top of what’s going on with our physical health, we should pay equally close attention to what’s happening with our financial health. 

Catching problems early makes all the difference!

But many people are just as anxious about dealing with money issues as they are about dealing with health issues.

People, especially entrepreneurs and small business owners, tend to associate their financial numbers with their own self worth, rather than seeing them as neutral data and feedback. 

“Wifi is a tool that helps us to do our business just like money is a tool,” explains Amber. “Did you wake up this morning and worry about whether or not your wifi was going to provide you with a great connection to do your job? Were you valuing yourself based on the magnitude of your wifi?”
