Episode 124: Generosity with Ellen Rogin


generosityDo you ever find yourself saying… “Oh, I just don’t have a head for money,” or, “I’m really not good at this [money]?”

Actually, our special guest, Ellen Rogin, has found that creatives (and yes, that means you) can be pretty darn awesome at it. Oftentimes, we’ve simply grown up learning that creative skills aren’t necessarily the ones that make you good at money.

“But the beauty happens when you can marry the creative, the intuitive, the visioning side of money by taking the right actions to make it work for you.”
– Ellen Rogin

When you think about it, if you don’t create a vision of where you want to go or listen to your own intuition, you’re not going to be as successful with money as when focused solely on the analytical.

For the past 30 years, Ellen has been helping people with their money as a financial advisor. During that time, she’s also written several books including New York Times bestseller, Picture Your Prosperity: Smart Money Moves to Turn Your Vision into Reality.

Early in her career, she realized that it wasn’t just about doing all the smart money moves or having lots of money that made people successful and content. A lot had to do with their mindset and approach to money that really had the whole package work.

According to Ellen, generosity is the new currency in business. People who are going to do well are the ones out there seeing how to add value to someone’s life, and be generous with not only your clients but your team.
Consider what’s the most generous response you can have to somebody?

Let’s find out how to bring in more prosperity and success in your business, and make you and everyone around you feel better!
