This week, I’ve had about six really meaningful conversations with folks about passionate life work versus working for money. It really is too bad that we even need money. It’s such a BIG distraction. People want to go in one direction but they end up going in the other because of money. Or, they go down the path they feel most passionate about and then have to switch gears because they run out of money. I met a lady this week in that exact position. She clearly needed Seth Godin’s book, The Dip, which I’ve mentioned here before. What would we do if we didn’t have to think about money at all? I often ask my clients to write a press release about themself as if they had won the lottery. Why? Because I think it’s a freeing exercise that helps facilitate clarity about what we’re really proud of and what we really want. Equally important is that you can then tailor your life to go in that direction even though you haven’t hit the jackpot. You may be able to implement some small changes in your everyday life that impact a big change for you. I’ve been thinking about all this everyday and then I read Seth Godin’s blog this morning.
I love Seth’s blog so much that I almost think I could just feed his to you guys and stop writing. Some days it seems he’s walking in my path next to me and then writing about what I’m living. Here’s his post today, “When in Doubt, (Don’t) Follow the Money”. Seth, thanks for another great post and for reminding me to stay on my path.
Lastly, The Barenaked Ladies have been a favorite band for years. It’s not coincidence. If you know them, you know that their breakthrough song is, If I had a Million Dollars….and it always reminds me to be present with my dreams….and to slow down and have a litte fun. Happy Friday everyone!

Money Blitz Word of the Day
Consumer in the context of selling a consumer typically refers to a private or personal customer or user, as distinct from a business or organizational, or trade customer. Notably we see this term in the acronym B2C, which means 'business-to-consumer', which describes the type of business in which the transaction and relationship is between a business and a private 'domestic' customer. A household insurer, or an estate agent, are examples of B2C sales organizations. Retail is by its nature consumer business. A holiday company is a B2C business. B2B describes 'business-to-business' - which is trade and selling between businesses.
