What Is Sabotaging Your Business?

I just finished up my 4-part series to help self-employed folks become more confident  with selling during these uncertain times. We did a lot of tapping to release fears of coming off as sales-y, thinking no-one has money now, feeling like no-one will buy from you, and more. 

By the end, I realized two things:

  1. Most of the messages holding you back during these coronavirus times are the same messages that were always there in your subconscious. Holding you back. And . . .
  2. One of the biggest reasons you may be keeping yourself from making effective offers or selling well is subconscious rules around money. Rules that tell you you’re not allowed to have more, or it’s not safe to have it, or you’ll be rejected if you have too much, or any of the other internalized negative messages you have around money that overcome your desire to have more.

Maybe both of those are self-evident to you. For me, the realizations were profound. 

That’s why I did this video about them for you:

So if you’re not selling as much or as well as you know you can now, it could just be those old money rules from your past coming up to slow you down. Consider doing some tapping on them.

If you’d like some help with that, I’m here. Just email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com and we’ll set up a time to talk about what’s going on with you and see if there’s a fit with what I do.

What’s Causing Your Money Block?

Here’s a series of videos I recorded on Facebook Live about the top subconscious blocks that might be holding you back from having more money. There’s a lot of content here, so feel free to watch any that call to you. 

(And check out the four different ways my hair is responding to the new order of things. I think it’s protesting not getting cut!) 

Enjoy! 

  • In this video, you’ll hear about the two biggest subconscious messages I’ve found that have kept my clients (and me) from improving our financial situation.

  • Here’s one that sets out an extremely common way you can “inherit” a money block, an interesting way a business owner might inherit a money block from a family member, and a truly strange way a family can pass down a money block. (I’ve had all three.)

  • Then there’s the one about how a money block can lead to pain or illness. I let you in on the most likely subconscious money message that leads to your body getting in the way.

  • And in this one, see if you recognize a belief in yourself that making money is hard. If so, that will get in the way of creating the kind of financial situation that you want.

    (The subconscious message at play here is actually the same as the one in the previous video, but it shows up in a different way.)

These are some of the kinds of blocks I released in my Money Blocks Solution with EFT/Tapping last time I offered it. 

The Money Blocks Solution is starting up again this week with its new and improved name. (The Money Blocks BlockBuster Group is so 2019!)

So if you’re ready to release your own blocks to having and keeping the kind of money you want, help is here!

For more information go to https://unblockresults.com/money-blocks-solution/

Or just reach out to me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up a call at no charge to figure out what your money story is and see if the Money Blocks Solution is right for you.

Don’t wait too long, though. We start Friday, May 15th! And I won’t offer it again until fall.

What the News Is Doing To Your Old Money Stories

Have you noticed how all the bad economic news has activated you these days? My clients and I definitely have!

All the big lay-offs, so many small businesses going under, a tidal wave of unemployment—it’s bringing up a lot of fear and feelings of lack. And it’s activating old money stories.

When that happens, our negative feelings start running the show, affecting how we show up, what we do (or don’t do), and basically messing with our finances.

I go into more detail here.

Maybe you have one or more old money stories that is getting triggered now, something like:

  • I don’t deserve more.
  • Making money is too hard.
  • I’m no good with money.
  • There’s never enough.

If so, you’re probably not enjoying what you’re seeing in your financial picture.

When you’re seeing that kind of hit on your finances, one of the best things to do is to really clear out those limiting stories you have around money so you can get back in charge. 

The best way to do that is with EFT—or “Tapping.”

To get some help with that, check out my Money Blocks BlockBuster Group, which is starting up again Friday, May 15, 2020. In each session we have group tapping on common money blocks as well as individual hotseats where we focus on your specific money stories so you can release and replace them.

For more information go to https://unblockresults.com/the-money-blocks-blockbuster-program/

Or just reach out to me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up a call at no charge to figure out what your money story is and see if the group is right for you.

Don’t wait too long, though. There are only eight places total, and it’s already filling up. We start on Friday, May 15th—just a little over a week away. And I won’t offer another one until the Fall.

Why You’re Procrastinating Now

If you’re procrastinating—or procrastinating more—these days, there are reasons.

I talked about those reasons in this week’s Facebook Live:

(Please be kind about my hair. This is what it does when it doesn’t get cut in waaaaaaaay too long.)

First, stress is taking a toll on everyone right now. And the energy you use to deal with your stress gets taken away from the actions you would like to be doing now, whether that’s creating an online program, cleaning out a closet, or learning a new language. Understanding this dynamic can help you take some of the pressure off yourself.

Beyond that, more than the usual amount of stress in your life “raises the bar” so that the usual ways you use to get around your procrastination simply are no longer enough.

So, if you haven’t completely gotten rid of the subconscious blocks that lead you to procrastinate (which is what I do with clients), they will definitely be more powerful now.

For these reasons, I encourage you to give yourself grace during extra stressful times like these when you aren’t getting as much done.

Also, try tapping along with the 1st of the 3 free videos you get for signing up for my newsletter. (If you haven’t done so already, get the 3-video series How to Stop Procrastinating Without Having to Push Yourself So Hard here.)

Transforming Your Money Story

I’ve found that subconscious money blocks are often a big cause of procrastination among my clients. That’s why I decided it was time to offer a group to work directly on the money stories people have to release their money blocks so they can finally transform their financial lives.

Since I announced last week that I’m offering my Money Blocks BlockBuster Group, people have been telling me their money stories—how they experience money come and go in their lives. A business owner told me about their pattern of making plenty of money, then slacking off and making too little money again. There’s been the all-too-common story of someone who can’t bring herself to raise her rates. Another common story I come across is of someone holding themselves back from making more money because some part of them believes they will have to work too hard. And that’s the tip of the iceberg.

If you’d like to hear about these stories and more and what happens when you change them with Tapping, check out the quick video I did.

And if you’re ready to transform a money story or two of your own so you can create the financial life you want, email me to set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if the Money Blocks BlockBuster Group is a fit for you.

You can start changing your financial life now. Just picture how that will change your life, your relationships, and your future!

Identifying Your Specific Money Blocks

Check out the third video in my series on How Tapping Can Help With Money Problems. This one shows you how to identify your specific subconscious money blocks—an important step in releasing them!

In this video I explain how I track down and put words to those types of subconscious money blocks, measure how powerful each one is, and decide which to work on with my clients.

Then I give you ways that you can start uncovering your own subconscious money blocks. Happy Hunting!

To see all the videos on this and other Tapping topics check them out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/nancy.linnerooth . Hey, let’s be friends! And then you can see my Facebook Lives on Tapping . . . live.

You can also let me know what you’d like to hear about. Just leave a comment, DM me on FB, or send me an old-fashioned email with your Tapping questions and I’ll do my best to answer them. 


Woo & Wellness Speed Coaching Event

If you’ve been wondering what it would be like to work with me, there is an opportunity coming up soon to “try me out.” On Saturday, April 27th, I will be one of the coaches at the all-day Woo & Wellness Speed Coaching Event in Seattle, hosted by ChickChat, Three Moon Collective, The Power of She, and Hezalia.

As an attendee, you get to meet with three different coaches for twenty minutes each. It’s a full day of coaching, break-out sessions, healing circles, and—well, a lot of woo-woo stuff. (I don’t really think what I do is all that woo-woo, but apparently it seems that way to other folks. I don’t mind. Whatever helps people learn about Tapping and getting out of their own way so they can create the life they’re meant to live.)woo and wellness

There is also an After Party where I’ll be hanging out to talk with anyone who didn’t get to coach with me during my six sessions. I’ll also be giving away a 3-video series on Tapping for common procrastination problems to all attendees.

If you or someone you know in the Seattle area is interested in a little speed coaching, there are a few spots left. Just click on the link for more details and to get tickets:

They’ve sold out this event in the past, so if you think you might like to try it out be sure to sign up soon.

Hope to see you in Seattle on the 27th!

When It’s Not Procrastination

Over the last two months I’ve only done things that were essential, like taking care of my eleven year old and meeting with current clients. I haven’t done much of anything else in my business like marketing, networking, or creating these videos, even though those things are very important to me. Instead, I’ve rested, puttered about, and cleaned up the kitchen.

But it wasn’t procrastination.

Watch the video to find out what it was, and when it’s right to step away from your To Do list entirely.

You’ll find there are times in life when you need to stop what you’re doing to celebrate, grieve, or put all your focus on an emergency. When that happens, don’t try to guilt yourself into working anyway. Just promise yourself you will get back to your goals when you’re ready. And be gentle on yourself until then.

Watch the video to find out more.

Of course, if you really are procrastinating and you’re ready to stop so you can create the life you are meant to live, email me. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if I can help.

Is Being Gifted Holding You Back?

In the last few months I’ve stumbled across the most counterintuitive cause of procrastination you can imagine. More than half my clients have this problem. It slows them down. It gets in the way of accomplishing their goals. And it has led them to think they’re stupid. Or lazy. Or both.

The cause? Growing up gifted.

Now I truly believe everyone on the planet has gifts to share with the world. I’m not talking about that here. I’m using “gifted” in the technical sense of being really bright or having a high IQ.

You would think that someone who is gifted in that way has it easy. They get a high-paying job that funds a lavish lifestyle without even trying. They just create a brilliant business that changes the world. They easily turn their dreams into reality.

You would be wrong. Those who study the gifted have found that an extremely common outcome for gifted children is that they become underachievers as adults.

If you’re curious about why that would happen watch the video to find out one reason, and what I’ve been doing with my clients to change that outcome.

And please, please, watch the video if:
• You were formally identified as gifted as a child.
• Someone like a teacher mentioned how smart you were in a subject (which may well mean you were gifted even if you weren’t great in other subjects).
• You have a parent or sibling who was very smart (which means you very likely were too, even if something else prevented you from being identified as gifted yourself).
• You have a child you know or suspect is really bright (yep, another indication that you are probably gifted, too).

The video also recommends two resources you can check out that can help you make sense of what you went through and what you can do to achieve more in your life: sengifted.org (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted—SENG) and nwgca.org (the Northwest Gifted Child Association).

The experiences of growing up gifted often lead to conscious or subconscious beliefs that cause someone to procrastinate as an adult. And no one has to keep those beliefs. They can be changed. Watch the video to find out more.

When you’re ready to stop procrastinating and create the life you are meant to live, email me. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if I can help.

What If Your Life Were Easy?

Over the past year I’ve noticed an interesting cause of procrastination in both my clients and myself.

Sometimes we procrastinate because it has become soooo hard to do something to reach a goal that we subconsciously decide it’s not worth trying.

And because we feel that it’s too hard to achieve our goal, we find ourselves putting off actions that could achieve that goal. Then we wonder why we’re procrastinating.

I’ve discovered a way to help both my clients and myself make things easier so we can reverse our procrastination. It’s a little woowoo, but it works!

Watch the video to find out the simple trick we’ve been using to make our goals—and even our lives—easier.
