Trying something new or going after a big dream—whether it’s paying off debt, changing careers, or starting a business that goes against the grain—isn’t easy. It’s always going to take little planning, a lot of follow-through, and a heap of guts. And all that is easier if we go at it with a healthy mindset.
Today’s guest, Rosemarie Groner of The Busy Budgeter, has paid off $30,000 in debt and gone from state trooper to daycare owner to wildly successful blogging business owner. She was able to make a full-time income with her blog in just 10 months working only 10 hours a week. And by year 2, she was earning over $100K a month.
It’s easy to hear all that and think she just got lucky, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
One of the biggest factors in Rosemarie’s rapid success was treating her blog like a business from the very beginning. That’s why I think she is kind of a mindset ninja, even if she doesn’t know it.
But finding business success and financial success doesn’t automatically change your money mindset. The emotions we have around money are deep-rooted and having more money doesn’t necessarily change that. In fact, it can sometimes complicate our feelings about money even more like it did for Rosemarie.
Many of us have reached a big goal and then not known what to do next. Or have overcome financial stress and realized we still don’t feel good about money. In this episode, Rosemarie shares how her mindset helped her grow her business so quickly and how it had to shift as she found success.
