Michael shares his financial wisdom with us; you'll love what he has to say, so read on!
Meet Michael Anthony
Michael landed a job with a Fortune 10 company with no high school education. They handed him his high school diploma. His first paycheck was for $10,000. Fast forward several years, he's built his second legal business. Several years later, he found himself at 350 pounds and smoking two packs of cigarettes a day and drinking. "I put a gun in my mouth because I didn't understand the impact of the abuse that I went through."
Even though there's been so much chaos in his life, he’s also experienced good things, which leads to his why. “What I do now is about impacting people's lives, helping them understand that they can be the hero of their own story.”
Michael’s Money Mindset
Although you can use the money to serve yourself and others, you also want to be safe and protect yourself by having a cushion of savings in the bank. Outside of your expenses, use your "extra" money that is prime for investing. “You take your resources and invest in yourself and you’ll never lose.” Michael invests more money in himself than those who have Ivy League degrees. He understands the value of reciprocity with spending money and bets on himself first.
Listen in to find out Michael’s amazing backstory, how he restructured his money mindset and how he uses his trauma to help others. In addition, you’ll learn:

Fellow financial coach, Lisa, joins me in a deep dive pm ways to double your business revenue in 10 to 12 weeks.
The purpose of a business is to bring in new money every single day.
The problem many people have is they don't have suitable structures in place to make sure they can bring in money. So they need to make an impact every single day if they want to bring in money daily. If you’re not making a move toward your revenue goal daily, then you’ll need to start at square one.
Sales Equate to Revenue Which Brings More Options
I believe that women make great salespeople once they understand the world of sales. And if you own a business, make no mistake, you are in sales.
I recently announced to my team that I'm not working Fridays. I'm not working Fridays anymore because I don't want to, and I don't have to because I'm making enough money to work a four-day workweek. Money equals options; revenue equals options.
Money gives you options, so we need to get clear about how to bring money and revenue into your business. In addition, money brings security. That's especially important for women who feel dependent on a partner for income. Learning how to sell and make money gives you the ability to create for yourself. In turn, this lessens your financial dependence on others.
Listen in to find out how to increase your business revenue by changing your money mindset and how to get clear and set new business goals. We also discuss:
