Stilettos in the Kitchen
Chapter 11 'Gold Digging 101' Where is Your Treasure?

Whoever said “money isn’t everything” is someone who probably didn’t have any. Money is important, and not just money itself but the power that it has and what it represents. Everything on the face of this planet is run by money.

From the house you live in, to the food you eat, to the way your mind thinks—it’s all controlled by money. And money determines the quality of life that you live; the more you have, the better it is. I mean, sure, you can march around saying money isn’t important.

You can live in an impoverished neighborhood, never have enough to pay your bills, and be limited to the things you can eat—all because of that silly affirmation. Let’s see how happy you will be.
There is nothing wrong about wanting money or realizing the importance of money. It’s not being greedy. Or materialistic. It’s called being practical. Being smart. Getting real.

Mentally Rich

Acquiring money starts with your mind. The way you think about money. The things that you say and the way you treat money all have an effect on how much of it you have. Remember when I talked about belief systems?

Well, money is one of the main things controlled by your beliefs.
So what do you think about money? Do you think it’s hard to acquire? Do you think you can only make money from your job?

Do you say things to yourself like, “It’s tough out here”? Or “We’re in a recession” and “I never have any money”? Well, if you read Chapter 3 thoroughly, you should know that those affirmations are shaping your reality...

"The Mind Over Money chapter was painful for me. But it's exactly what I needed because my financial life is already getting better thanks to you! Thanks Shanel."

~ Denise H.

"I'm divorced, 39 with 3 kids, and haven't been on the dating scene in a while. I see some things I need to improve about myself as a woman. I've struggled with self-worth issues for a long time, but this gives me a good starting point for improvement."

~ Monica M

"It took me a while to make this purchase, but I did it just to see if it was worth it. I don't know where you came from but I feel like a brand new woman already. I haven't even finished the book!"

~ Janet S.

"Shanel's book changed my life. Not long ago, I was feeling beneath myself, unqualified, unworthy, unhappy and confused. I'm a mother of 2, 38 yrs old. And even at this age, I feel like I'm connected to my purpose and have something ahead of me to look forward to. I haven't had that feeling in a long time. Thank you for giving me my life back! You are a Godsend."
