When you read this word “entitlement”
What springs to mind? What are your first thoughts?
In many ways we have come to see “entitlement” with mostly negative connotations.
Conjures up thoughts of “I deserve” or “I have the right to …” and not in a good way.
What if …
What if I showed you a way that we could use entitlement for good vs evil?
That it could be a positive – rather than a negative.
You see I truly believe that everyone is entitled to understand how money works in business.
Please stay with me here.
You absolutely do not need to become a qualified accountant – unless of course you want to 😊
Think about this.
You have mastered your craft – you are an amazing yoga teacher, a phenomenal Pilates professional, a fabulous hairdresser, an incredible coach, a terrific plumber or whatever it is that you bring into the world.
Whatever that is YOU are really good at it!
Proudly and confidently you tell the world “I am a …..“ whatever that is that you do in the world.
You are a master at it.
Let me ask you – did you start there? I doubt you did.
You spent weeks, months, years studying and working and honing your craft, developing your expertise.
Do you need to develop this same level of expertise when it comes to money and finances in your business? No, not at all. A basic understanding is what is called for.
When it comes to numbers and finances in business I believe that you are entitled to a basic understanding AND I believe that it is absolutely possible for you to achieve this.
You can outsource the nitty gritty, the columns and the rows and the tax return. That’s what your tax agent, your accountant and bookkeeper are doing.
Late last year I recorded this video for the members of my Profit Lab FB group and I’ve added it to Youtube. You can watch it here.
While the word entitlement is not in this video, it is where my thinking about this idea began.
This video talks about how to develop the belief in yourself and how to introduce tiny habits to build your self belief – and especially when it comes to understanding money.

Instead of believing “I’m not a numbers person” I encourage you to say to yourself and to start to believe – and with a positive air of entitlement:
“I am entitled to understand how money works in my business”
Can you do that? 😊 Are you able to say it to yourself? or maybe whisper it to yourself?
I truly believe you can. I believe you can say it, can whisper it and absolutely believe it!
Are you ready to give it a go?
I’m right here cheering you on!

There has never been a better time to be in business.
My guess is you are here because …..
My guess is that you are here because you are a business owner and what you really want – is have a successful business – whatever that means to you.
Maybe that means feeling confident when it comes to talking about the money side of business.
Having a successful business might mean making business decisions with reliable information – facts & data as well as your “gut feel.”
… ultimately you want to do what you do best AND have a successful business AND make a difference.
