From Sara Blakely to Oprah. What do these self-made female billionaires have in common? After watching many interviews of various self-made billionaires, they seem to have several habits in common. Here are 3 simple ones that we can all practice starting today!
1. They make time for ENERGETIC self-care.
We all have a finite amount of time in a day. So who wouldn’t want to make the most of their precious time?
Energetic self-care in the morning helps set the tone for the day. After all, money is energy!
Energetic self-care can include meditating, walking in nature, to journaling. It doesn’t have to be limited to AM activities.
There are various simple habits that can be carried out throughout the day and before winding down at night.
Basically, energetic self-care activities help raise the vibrations and release negative emotions. By making time for energetic self-care, these female trailblazers are able to be on top of their A-game.
Whether it’s yoga or listening to uplifting music, there are many ways to incorporate simple energy healing practices into your busy schedule.

2. They pursue SPIRITUAL growth.
Sadly, many stories behind the world’s wealthiest have a common theme. They made it to the top of their game but didn’t feel like they were worth a million bucks.
In fact, they claimed they were happier when they had less money. Many said that money brought on more misery until they realized it was because they were spiritually bankrupt.
Money isn’t a bad thing at all. It comes down to our beliefs around money that can create financial fears and a scarcity mindset.
The thought patterns driving us to make more because there isn’t enough to go around can cause unnecessary anxiety. When such anxiety spins out of control, this sometimes also manifests into health issues.
Money is energy.
Aside from my passion for personal finance, I’m a certified yoga teacher, Reiki Master and corporate dropout. Basically, I love all things money and metaphysical!
Most times we manifest breakthroughs by tackling our challenges on a physical, emotional, and mental level. Rarely do we look at how to take on life challenges on the energetic level.
Based on the law of attraction, when we raise our vibrations, we are able to attract who and what we want into our lives. That’s why money and metaphysics goes hand in hand!
It’s not to say that life is happily ever after since I reached retirement at age 35. Oh no no no. I’m not sipping a Mai Tai on a beach everyday.
Achieving financial freedom is not the end goal!
The goal is to live a fulfilling life.
Sitting on a beach all day is just not fulfilling to me. What is meaningful is helping others master a money mindset to create wealth beyond money.
3. They operate on an ABUNDANCE mindset.
Surprising, operating on an abundance mindset did not come naturally for many self-made billionaires. Some admit they are still working on shifting from a scarcity mentality.
Developing an abundance mindset is a lifelong journey. It also doesn’t happen overnight.
But the good news is, it just takes small consistent steps. If you view money as scarce, you’ll focus your energy on pinching every single penny.
This creates tunnel vision that leads to missing important opportunities to make more money.
Start noticing more ways to create passive income or be more willing to take on side hustles. These days, the options are endless with so many ways to create multiple sources of income!
How can you tell if you’re operating on a scarcity mindset? Notice if you feel like you are depriving yourself in important areas in life from family to health.
For instance, I remember having petty arguments about money with friends and family. One time it happened when splitting the bill after a birthday dinner. Now that’s no way to end a nice evening!
Abundance = wealth, health, opportunities, experiences, and so forth.
On the other hand, if you view money as abundant, you’ll keep an open mind for opportunities everywhere. After all, energy flows where the mind goes.
What you put out to the Universe, the Universe responds accordingly. Setting your intention can make all the difference in shifting your energy to attract abundance flow.

Which passive income idea best suits your personality?
Not too long ago, I quit Corporate America, sold my condo, and moved across the country.
In that order. No job lined up. Not a single client on the horizon.
It was my third time quitting a career without a Plan B. I gave everything away and left all my furniture.
What about clothes? I left it all, my business suits and winter coats were still on hangers the day I gave the new owners the condo keys.
I took my fav pair of heels though.
Other than that, I shipped my car and gave away everything else. GoodWill and Salvation Army shoppers must of had a field day.
It was time to start a new chapter. Being born and raised in Hawaii, I had enough of East Coast winters.
So I picked Southern California as my new home.
Just like that.
Most of my life, that is how I operated. One foot in front of the other, rarely in a “logical” order. And never in a “rational” way.
What about the previous career quits? Even more spontaneous than the last quit.
As mentioned, I quit my corporate job three times without a Plan B.
Things worked out each time but it was definitely scary times. That's why I created this website to cover all my personal finance lessons learned along the way.
