It’s Not About The Money

2024 has been a crazy year for a lot of us and myself included. Again, I am actively like in the process of losing my voice. So today I am pulling the most popular episode that we’ve ever had on the show out of the archives because it’s not about the money. And this is still really important. So here we go.

But Aimee, it’s not about the money we ever spent that we do not worry about money, but as a person, I’m not somebody that’s concerned about that. You don’t understand, that’s not me, I’m not worried about the money. Which, if you’re listening to this podcast, you probably have a little bit of awareness of like how we need to actually work on this. But today, we’re gonna talk about if it’s not about the money. So here we go.

This is the Your Money Your Life podcast. I’m your host, Aimee Cerka, a money confidence coach for female entrepreneurs on the path to six figures. After over 10 years in the personal finance industry and multiple personal financial and medical crisis.

I was fed up with the lies that are being shouted from the rooftops by the gurus and the media. So now I help you simplify, solidify and scale your money. By blending tactile money strategies with mindset work, you can create unstoppable finances together, you’ll finally figure out the money thing. So you can make more money in less time without living off of beans and rice, or sacrificing your lifestyle.

Episodes here on the podcast are short and sweet. Being married, having four kids at home, homeschooling being the CEO running the household. I’m kind of busy. And I know you are too. So let’s keep it simple and get to the point. Welcome. I’m so glad you’re here.

All right, welcome back, we are talking about money. Surprisingly, right. You know, Your Money Your Life, but one is it’s not about the money. Okay. Some of us feel like we’re not money motivated, we’re much more feminine, I’ve heard it. And we’re not into like the tactical numbers, and that’s too masculine and all the things like, we can get to that in a second.

Leveraging Impact Beyond Money: Your Time Matters Too

But we’re gonna start at a much higher level of I guess, today, there are two main ways that you can make impact, and it boils down to these two time, money. Guess which one we don’t get any more time, right? The way to leverage your legacy, your impact is done through your money.

If it wasn’t about the money, those who are doing amazing callings. These can be like missionaries that are focused on like outreach and helping others these things. What do they have to do? They have to fundraise, right?

So can I have had the money to use the time, you need to be able to take care of yourself had the roof over your head, you can be like, well, I could be homeless, or I’m trusting God to provide in so many different ways. Like you can say these things. But at the root, there is still money needed to take care of things.

Yes, there can be other ways that this shows up, and might not necessarily be your money all the time. But it’s somebody’s money. So watch part one, call it your money your life again, right? We’re creating the life that we love, the life that you your life, the your dream life, this is what you’re working towards.

And if you want to be able to give back, that is fantastic. I think that we all should be giving back in some form or fashion. I think we’re all called to the bigger blessings does the bossing always necessarily look like handing a physical dollar over? Not at all.

Redefining Money: Beyond Dollars and Cents

There can be other ways to work with people and that can be with your time there can be other exchanges, which we think of money a lot of times is like the currency money, but that’s not really money. Money is much more vibrational, like it’s an exchange of goods. We’ve just kind of call that money and think of like dollars and cents.

And that’s not actually what it is like if I’m giving you food that is a form of money that’s that that energetic exchange is still there. So if we’re saying it’s not about the money, then what do we say? Like, we don’t want to leverage the impact. We don’t want to prioritize and often we don’t want to feel like, oh, you know, we love money.

Balancing Impact: More Than Just Physical Currency

And because we’ve all heard, you know, the love of all money is evil, the money is evil. I’m going blank on the exact like, actual quote here, but prioritizing and working to be a bigger blessing, that’s not idolizing money. Like you can do more work and you can do more good without being obsessed. Actually, it’s also been proven, the more money you have, the less you think about it.

So you have time to do the other things that are actually more important to you. When you’re not sitting there, like obsessing over every little thing, because there’s not enough there. And then we got it, and we don’t want to share it and like that, it leads to home.

Wealth Wednesday: Giving Back and Releasing

But this is why we talk about wealth Wednesday, and we talked about getting back more, this is why we have those conversations is because it’s important to give in to bless others and be willing to release it and we willing to let go and not caught up in those things. But money is so much more than just dollars and cents, that energetic vibration is there, their stories in our world in there and the feelings that we have with it.

And until we can handle that objectively, like we’re just going to be on a roller coaster to like in a loop. Because we’re not going to learn and to move forward to learn to the next get to the next level to create that bigger blessing, that bigger benefit if we haven’t figured out the money. So this was a little bit more of a little bit of a different episode this week.

Money and Objectivity: Handling the Roller Coaster

All right, yeah, let me know if you like this one or not. Because this was more about like, less tactile, more like vision. It’s not that it’s about the money, like it doesn’t all have to be about the money. But really, it is all about the money.

But when you make it not. When you focus on the money, it becomes it. It’s not about the money. And it’s not a worry, not a focus and you’re able to go make more of an impact. But if you start at a base level, not managing your money, not knowing more about your money, not handling these things. But putting it off, I don’t have the money to do this, or I’m just trying to hit this income goal.

Time as the Irreplaceable Resource

And then I’ll be at the place where it’s there. I’m not ready for it yet. I’m not to the point where it matters yet, then we’re just backtracking we’re setting ourselves up, back. Because when you manage your money, I’ll say it correctly, then you move forward, then you create the bigger impact, then you’re not worried about the money, then you’re not stressed about it.

Because you know what the systems handling it for you, it’s got your back, it doesn’t matter. And you’re able to show up and make the impact, whether that’s through your business, whether that’s giving of your time and driving and donating your time to take care of the homeless or whatever need is close and dear to your heart. When you do those things and show up in that manner. Then you’re set up for success.

Creating a Legendary Impact: The Sweet Spot

And that’s like, that’s the sweet spot. When you understand like, it’s not about the money, but it is about the money at the same time. All right, we talked about two main ways to create impact, lasting impact time and money.

And your time was the one that’s not renewable, we don’t have endless amounts of time. We have to leverage our time. And the best way to do that is to leverage your money so that your money can go and create that legendary impact for you that you’re you feel called to make you have that passion in your heart to move forward because of that.

Mission Field without Fundraising: A Powerful Vision

And then we talked about like, you know, missionaries still have to fundraise because the money still matters. Even if you go with your time you still need the money. You know powerful this is like side note, I don’t think I mentioned this, know how powerful it would be to be able to go into the mission field and not have to fundraise because you have systematized income coming in then it’s really not about the money and you’re able to go spend your time doing what you do.
