In our 6th episode of the Aligned & Unstoppable podcast, Emily talks with self-made millionaire and author Denise Duffield-Thomas. Denise shares why so many women and lightworkers are afraid of success. Emily & Denise discuss topics such as their favorite ways to bring outsourcing home, the most common money blocks and how to fix them and the benefits of “tapping”.

Episode Highlights:

  • Emily just read Denise’s new book, Chillpreneur, and the basis is that many women have a fear of success and creating wealth
  • One of the most exciting things for women has been the growth of technology which has allowed them to work from home and connect with other women
  • Many women still have a primitive fear that something bad is going to happen
  • Denise specifically helps those struggling with common money blocks:
  • 1) Feeling that you have to work hard to make money or that because everyone can’t be wealthy then we shouldn’t be either
  • 2) Feeling that you can’t make money by helping people
  • If you’re a healer that doesn’t charge much money and you’re an over-deliverer then you will experience burnout
  • You can always help someone from where you’re at right now
  • Denise finds that delegating at home is way more useful to her than delegating at work
  • Denise has outsourced some of her “mommy” duties to a team of cleaners, a nanny and a housekeeper and still spends plenty of time with her children
  • She likes that her kids see her and her husband playing the role of different gender norms
  • Putting a value on housework and providing an environment where your people are well-paid and have a flexible environment is important
  • Women business owners should never feel guilty for providing a job for another woman
  • Make sure you’re sharing your dreams with people that have the capacity to appreciate them
  • Because of the advancements in technology & culture, women no longer need permission from men to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams
  • When dealing with the “tall poppy syndrome”, there’s something freeing about being unapologetically you
  • When starting her early businesses, Denise was just trying to make money and not focused on a business that was aligned with who she was
  • Every time Denise moves into a new area of her business she faces feelings of starting from scratch with her money blocks
  • Tapping is a fast way to shift your energy, clear off negative baggage and pull in higher vibrations/frequencies of unconditional love

3 Key Points:

  1.  Charge appropriately for what you do, so you can buy back some energy and create more tools and resources to help people
  2.   As your success continues, you will have to face new levels of the same issues even though you’ve already experienced healing in them
  3. When you love yourself you allow yourself to receive good things: money, compliments, support, etc.
