Welcome to Gratitude practice #2 in my 4 part series on how practicing gratitude can support you in increasing your profits in your business. It will also increase your happiness and satisfaction!

Lesson #2: Pay your bills with love and gratitude.

Money is energy and it loves to be in flow. If you want to receive more money and remain open to an abundant flow of cash and clients, then stay in the energy of gratitude. Remember that each time you pay a bill or send someone money, you are expanding the energetic flow of money. Imagine that when you pay your electric bill, it allows that company to pay their employees. Those employees buy groceries for their kids. When they pay for groceries, the people in those stores get paid, the farmers get paid and on and on. When you feel resentful for paying money out for services you have asked for, it stops the flow of gratitude. You can’t be open to receiving abundance when you are stuck in resentment or fear. Write those checks with love.

I would love for you to share your thoughts in the comments below. Does this make sense? Seem challenging or difficult? Can’t wait to get started? Remember that money loves attention and the more you love on it, the more it will stay in abundant flow in your life and business.

Award-Winning Entrepreneur and Best-Selling Author of The Artful Marketer: The Fundamental Business Guide for Creative Entrepreneurs, Dr. Minette Riordan successfully built a multi-media publishing company, turning a small quarterly newspaper into a monthly magazine with a circulation of 50,000 copies distributed through over 300 locations around the Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex. She also hosted wildly successful family expos with hundreds of vendors and thousands of attendees. When she first started her business, Minette knew nothing about marketing and sales. In fact the first time she stood up a local networking event, she was so nervous her knees were shaking and her face turned bright red. She was terrified to pick up the phone and make a sales call. But she knew if couldn’t master sales, she wouldn’t have a business. What Minette finally discovered was that building relationships, being curious, and listening to people are the keys to sales success. Minette went on to gross hundreds of thousands of dollars in that business and discovered that what she loved most was coaching other small business owners on how to grow their business. After 11 years in the publishing industry, Minette sold that company and relocated her family to beautiful Santa Barbara, CA. She now runs her coaching business from her home near the beach and when she’s not working, she loves spending time with her family, taking long walks on the beach, making art or enjoying a glass of red wine.
