Ep 293: How to Be a Chillpreneur with Denise Duffield-Thomas

How to Be a Chillpreneur with Denise Duffield-Thomas

Back in my April income report in Episode 288 I shared with you how I read this book by Denise Duffield Thomas called Chillpreneur: The New Rules for Creating Success, Freedom and Abundance on Your Terms, and how that book started me on a quest to transform my money mindset.

I started reading it to distract myself from the overworking habit that crept back in at the start of the pandemic when my mind started to go squirrely with my same old money fears.

And what Chillpreneur revealed to me is that I’ve been overworking and under-offering, and that if I wanted to change that I needed to go deeper than fluffy money mantras about abundance and attraction (which I personally think are a bunch of BS anyway) and really get to the root of my beliefs about money and my worth so I could challenge them, and then change them.

So near the end of the book, the author, Denise Duffield Thomas mentioned that she loves being a guest on podcasts so I thought, “OMG I’m gonna reach out and see if she wants to come on the show to talk about the book!” and she said yes!

Denise is a money mindset mentor for entrepreneurs, and one of the things that she stands for that I really resonate with is her belief that empowered women will change the world, and that when women know how to create wealth they use it in ways that benefit humankind.

And she also knows that many women have a complicated relationship with money and their own worth which prevents us from having the kind of impact we can have.

Denise and I talk about:

  • How she became a money mindset coach for women.
  • Common money blocks you see from someone who's brand new to business vs. someone who’s farther along in their journey.
  • Why Denise wrote Chillpreneur.
  • How to make more money (without giving more of your time).
  • One simple (but costly) mistake you might be making in your business and how to fix it.
  • Denise’s best advice for you if you’re struggling to grow your side hustle.
  • The one belief she had to change about herself to get where she is today.

My favorite quotes from Denise:

  • “Money itself doesn't cure money blocks, but the awareness can help you dance with them.”
  • “Why don't I write the book that I wish someone would write for me?”
  • “You've got to look at all the things you could create and decide which one could really make the biggest impact.”
  • “Tell people how they can give you money and make it really easy for them.”
  • “There's so many purchases that people are making at the moment that they are deeming essential to them. But how are you supposed to know the difference if you never tell anyone about what you've got to offer?”
