Course Description

The Financial Freedom Formula™ is a unique holistic blueprint for financial success.

If you’ve ever wondered why you do what you do with your money and how to stop unproductive financial behaviors, such as overspending, underearning, and chronic debting, this is the course for you.

 Unlike other financial courses that only focus on the nuts and bolts of money management, the Financial Freedom Formula also examines how your unique combination of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, affects your financial outcomes.

A basic premise of the Financial Freedom Formula is that money is a symbol of relationships and how you deal with money is how you deal with your relationship with yourself and others. 

Before you can sustain moving into a more comfortable financial position, you have to become more comfortable with yourself. 

Most important is your understanding of your relationship with money and how habitual emotions learned in early childhood, such as aloneness, anger, deprivation, shame, and a sense of being trapped, are often acted out through finances.

This course introduces you to the basic financial skills you need and helps you understand -- and overcome -- whatever resistance you have to actually doing what needs to be done.

You'll also learn a state-of-the art technique for reprogramming your subconscious mind.

Throughout the course and in some of my educational announcements, I may link to pages on my sites that contain affiliate links. These are optional for you to check.

Introducing yourself is really important to me because I want to interact with you. Your thoughts and your questions are very helpful in making this course even better.

Section 2: Start on Your Path to Financial Freedom

In this section we’re going to get you started on the path to financial freedom with some simple things to do. They’re simple so you will actually do what I suggest.

A prosperity journal will help you stay motivated and move forward. It's where can keep track of your progress, what you’re going through, what your thoughts are and how you feel about what you're doing.
In your prosperity journal or mentally, is to define what financial freedom means to you.
Now it's time to to define your dream. What is it that you dream about having? What kind of a house you want to live in? What kind of a car you want to have? Do you even want a car or a house, or do you want to be traveling all over the world?

Vision boards work because visualizations are a time-honored technique that can help you bring your dreams into reality

I suggest you enlist a prosperity buddy to work with you while you’re walking towards your financial freedom.
Section 3: Condition Yourself for Change
Included in this section are suggestions on how to identify resistance and how you can adapt to change. It will help you understand that what you’re feeling and how you react on your intentions to such changes are absolutely natural.
Before going through the process of change, there will be a number of natural factors that will keep you from moving forward. Understanding how these factors work and recognizing the resistance will help you decide what steps to take to counteract them.
The small changes suggested in this lecture will help you move forward towards your goal of financial freedom.
