There may be some aspects around money that you are really good at, but then, there is also that same old bad habit you just cannot get rid of.
You might pride yourself about being really good at saving money, but you are also aware of limiting the growth of your business, because you hate taking risks.
Or you are a good risk taker, but your income looks like a rollercoaster!
So, why do you have certain struggles around money that other people around you don’t seem to have?
Since women usually tend to compare themselves with others, they can rapidly hurl themselves into a downward spiral of shame and guilt around their wrong money decisions that directly affect their businesses. That is why it is very important to address the core of their money issues, so they can face money challenges at a heart level.
It all boils down to your personality type. It defines how you treat money and what your money “shadow” sides are. It will also affect the way you go about your company, because your personality type will directly determine the business decisions you make daily.
For example, in my industry, that of independent Christian professional women, it is very common to find a nurturing personality type. Women who fall into this category are amazing professionals, who usually deliver a service of great value to their clients, but they tend to over deliver and under charge their fees, leading to burn out and feelings of not being valued enough. They might even be pretty good at making money, but then they spend it all on other people’s needs.
This will directly affect her bottom line at the end of the month, because:
- She will sabotage her own growth potential, due to her excessive investment of time and energy in each of her clients.
- She will also have trouble charging what her service is really worth or even raising her fees, because she prefers to help as many people as possible, even at the cost of her own well-being.
- Very often she also has problems with her team, due to the lack of clear boundaries.
On the long run she runs the risk of working very hard for a low level client who does not value the sacrifices she is making.
The solution for the Christian businesswoman who has a nurturing personality is mainly to learn how she can set healthy boundaries with her clients, her team and even her family, so she can keep on delivering an amazing service without disempowering herself all the time.
You might not identify with the nurturing personality type, but, believe me, God created you with a specific and unique personality that fits your calling to the business world perfectly!
While you might be operating already in the unique strengths you possess, it is also highly probable that you are stunting the growth of your business because of certain mistakes you tend to repeat with your money.
It might show up in your personal savings, in the way you manage your team, in your marketing or in your sales conversion, etc.
The point is: your personality type will ultimately affect your relationship with money—and your business!
Dear business woman, God intends for you to be successful and victorious in all your endeavors!
It is important to learn what your specific strengths are, so you can exploit them even more, and, at the same time, prevent bad decisions by being more aware of your money weaknesses.
