I first met Jeanna about 6 years ago when I attended a “CASH FLOW 101 Event” in the Bay Area (Northern California). She amazed me, facilitating “financial learning” for a room full of people who came to learn “How to Get Out of the Rat Race”. You could feel the level of financial intelligence rising in the room! I enjoyed the interactive learning experience so much that I became a CASHFLOW Event Facilitator myself the following year…
I hired Jeanna as my “personal & professional coach” shortly thereafter. She taught me more of the financial literacy concepts popularized by Robert Kiyosaki through the “Rich Dad” books. More importantly, she enlightened me to the specific changes I needed to make in my own thought patterns, which ultimately have the greatest positive impact on my financial life.
What she reveals here is simple and true. See if you can “get it” and may your financial future forever be improved by what you learn from her.

I coach many people who have had dreams of living a lifestyle of comfort. They’d like a nice home, with money in the bank for security and enough money in their pocket to not feel strapped. But there is one problem. They have begun to believe that they will always be struggling as the dream has not manifested. Even worse, some folks have gone backwards in their finances in recent years due to a variety of circumstances.
My job is to tell them the truth. Sometimes they resist this truth and have a hard time believing me. It is simply this: It doesn’t matter what your financial status/success has been or not been up to this point. You can turn things around at any moment. Looking into your past is only good for learning. You can see what you thought and the actions you took that worked successfully for you and then look at the habits you continually acted from that did not work and do something different.
I have been in a position where I had no worries about money and I have been in a position where I had no idea how I was going to pay the house payment that was due in 2 days. But what always works, no matter where you are currently is to know where you are going. I was very clear in my mind that I would find a way to pay all my bills and I would not dip into my retirement fund or borrow the money. I made those boundaries because that is what felt good to me. You have to create your own rules to live by.
Because I was committed to paying the bills, I always found a way. Sometimes the way found me. The important thing to remember is to get very clear on what you do want, not what you don’t want. Many of my new clients give lots of thought to all the things they don’t want. They think and say, “I don’t want to go into debt. I don’t want to be late on bill payments. I don’t want to lose my house. I don’t want to struggle forever.”
Guess what my first question is? What do you want? Let’s focus on what you do want in your life and then you can begin to put some new positive patterns in your both your thinking and actions. Create a road map to your goal and start believing you can have it.
I like to start the process by getting clear on what my big outrageous goals are. You may not be able to dream big right away if you have had recent hardships, so go as big as you can. Next, I ask myself what do I want in the next six months. What are the six most important things for me to be, have or achieve? What about in a month? And then this week. I always write these out or print them off my computer and post in several places to be seen daily. You have to keep your eye on the end result or you will get bogged down in the obstacles that are staring you in the face.
Every moment you have an opportunity to begin your path to wealth or even just comfort. If you fall back into old patterns, quickly forgive yourself and begin again. Most importantly, remember to have fun in this game. Most people get very serious and stressed about money. Those who see it as a game are less attached and actually attract more money.
