Wealth Mindset: Money For Women by Tami Yaari – A Book Review


Wealth Mindset: Money For Women - A Book ReviewTitle: Money For Women: A Practical & Mind-Opening Guide to Self-Fulfillment (Business & Success)
Author: Tami Yaari
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services LLC
Genre: Finances, Self-Help, Business
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Making money is not just about the technical and practical action steps that we are required to perform in order to create a profitable business, but it begins with cultivating a wealth mindset that prepares you for abundance. Sadly, many women do not naturally possess this wealth mindset, for many reasons -societal, personal or spiritual – and is therefore often left behind in creating their own abundance.
That is a dangerous trait  because it leads to co-dependency and potential victim-hood.

 

Money For Women, attempts to break through the barrier that holds women back from creating their own financial success, it showcases that motherhood and financial success are not only possible, but the skills learned from it, allows a woman to apply skills and knowledge that make her a better entrepreneur.
This is the point of this book, where I was slightly disappointed. While the skill set statement is true and has
been true in my life, it leaves out those women who choose not to have children. It assumes that every woman wants motherhood, and that is simply an untrue assumption.
Disregarding this profoundly false assumption for a moment, this book otherwise delivers what it promises.

 

Did you know that 99 % of abusive spouses also commit domestic financial abuse, to assert control-

 

Money for Women includes:
True and inspiring women’s stories.
Practical exercises for implementation and integration of the new knowledge.
Reflection on specifically feminine tendencies, such as taking care of others at the expense of your needs,
avoiding bargaining and being too  passive in changing your reality.
The “financial crystals”- talents and techniques you can use to elevate your financial status right now.
A special chapter is dedicated on how to create a harmonious and balanced relationship between fulfilling
motherhood and a successful career.

Overall it is a unique and well-written book for the woman with “traditional” views, but wants it all, including financial independence from a spouse, and family.

Disclaimer: I have received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Money for Women is available on Amazon now!

Jaaxy Free Keyword Search Tool

 

You have probably heard about keyword search tools, and that you really should begin using one. Well, I am
giving you access to Jaaxy, a free keyword search tool right now!

 



Here are some tips on how to make the most out of this tool:

You will see the terms “Monthly Searches”, KQI (Keyword Quality Index), QSR (Quoted Search Results), and SEO Power.
This is what they stand for:
1. Monthly searches
how many people are searching for the individual keyword you have chosen – your most important indicator of the relevance of a topic
2. KQI – a real-time up-to-date info that tells you what the quality of your chosen keyword is.
3. QSR – your competition number. It tells you how many other pages are writing about this particular keyword. Ideally, you want this number to be under 300 when searching for a keyword to rank on.
4. SEO Power – a very cool tool to use to see if you can get this keyword to rank easily or not – it is based on the
traffic, the nature of the keyword, the competition, and the keyword quality.

Give the tool a try, and if you have any additional questions, let me know in the comments below.

How To Stay Creatively Inspired

How To Stay Creatively Inspired

 

When you decide to work as a creative entrepreneur, staying creative is incredibly important. Producing content, such as blog posts or articles, designing your own products, styling your website and many other daily activities demand that we stay focused on the creative side of our businesses. But where do you find inspiration from, and how do you cultivate this creative mindset on a regular basis?

Here are some suggestions, that I use in order to stay creative:

1. Write in a journal.
May it be to vent a stressful situation that keeps my mind focused of the tasks ahead, or by creating a list of gratitude
and accomplishments, my journal is always a go-to place when I am seeking inspiration. But not just for writing through those moments of disconnect, but also to re-connect with the lost spark, that I had days or weeks before, simply by re-reading  my journal entries of those successful days. When I see how far I have come, I am always in a better mood, which tends to lift the fog from my inspirational down.

2. Listen to music.
Music evokes strong emotions in us. This also goes for inspiration – some music can be very motivating and inspiring. I  have created multiple playlists on Spotify for myself, depending on what I am trying to achieve – I have a list for writing fiction, another for motivation, and more for lifting my mood. Create your own playlists according to your needs, and use them.

3. Read
Exposing yourself to the inspiration of others, may it be via full-length fiction, or short off topic articles, can create
a spark of something new within. I do truly believe that inspiration can be found in the most unexpected places, so taking a  few moments of reading an article that you would usually not consider, or diving into a new book genre, you have not explored  yet, can be very stimulating.

Nature does not hurry,yet everything isackomplished- Lao Tzu1

4. Go out in nature.
Sometimes taking a breath in nature, may it be the backyard or a walk in the park, can re-stimulate my creative spark.  It is the change of environment and the closeness to something natural that is so different from my everyday job so that it forces me to shift gears, which tends to often unlock creativity. I have found that just a 5-minute coffee break, on the back porch can do wonders to my creative output and productivity. I highly recommend it.

Bonus Tip:

Joining a creative, or like-minded community is also a great way to stay creative, and keep motivated. Check out my review of Wealthy Affiliate, my favorite community to go to for inspiration. Or sign up now for a free membership! 

Here is a short book list with links to my review for books that might spark your inspiration:

Fear Nothing by Lisa Gardner (thriller/crime)

Beneath The Veil by Megan Hart (speculative fiction)

Girl Gone London (non-fiction/self-help)

Appreciation Marketing (non-fiction/business/marketing)
