Wealth Tips with Tiff

 

Typicality I share my wealth tips on Wednesday Wealth Tips with Tiff, my higher self is screaming at me to share these with you today. So here we go!

Gaining wealth consistency is not a one lane highway. To have wealth that continues to grow requires interstates, highways, freeways, and even toll roads. It’s important to not put all of your eggs in one basket. Meaning all of your income generating shouldn’t just come from your primary job. There’s only one of you (if there’s more than one of you I’m jealous), and only about 8-12 work hours in a day that you can execute. So if you stick with your job being your primary source of income, then you will only increase your wealth when and if you get a raise or a bonus check. NOT A WEALTH GENERATING POA (plan of action).

Since there is only one of you, to accelerate your financial growth, you will need to create a passive income interstate, a residual income road, and a savings strategy. It may sound overwhelming, so I suggest baby steps.
Start with one interstate, one road, and a simple savings startedgy. Here’s a simple example of what my money roadmap looked like initially 👇:

Primary Income came from my Marketing/PR/Social Media firm. My passive income (meaning how I made money when I wasn’t actively engaged-while I slept) came from investing in mutual bods (though a financial adviser) and stocks. My residual income (money you earn long after your initial effort) came from network marketing high end skin care products. So skin care systems I sold to people who regularly refilled their order monthly or quarterly, without me having to “re-sell” them the products. Not all network marketing companies pay the same, so it’s crucial to partner with a brand you love that compensates you well for suggesting it to others. I’ll have an entire podcast dedicated to this subject.

Savings Strategy: this deserves its own paragraph. Saving money = making money. You can gain great wealth by saving overtime. In fact the ROI (return on investment) with saving money is often higher than most other investments like real estate, stocks, and bonds. I’ll do a dedicated IG live to “Saving Strategy.” Be on the lookout for it today.

5 Things you should know before starting a YouTube Channel EP090


Not sure how many of you know this, but I have been pouring a ton of money, time, and energy into something that is completely free to all of you.

To the point where recently I thought, “what the hell am I doing, this is crazy!” Of course I didn’t think it was crazy when I started, I thought and felt all of the things many of us do when we start something new….excitement, nerves, passion, hope, and fantasying about all of the amazing things to come.

Then the high wears off after the results don’t pour in like we fantasized about or even worse expected. I’ve been an entrepreneur for 11 years, so I know that things take time, typically much longer then we would even like.  For whatever reason, with my new TV Show ProjectME TV with Tiffany Carter, based on YouTube, I found my self  with 11 episodes in feeling discouraged and doubting my decision to go all in with top-notch production, sound, glam, and editing.

“This is costing me a small fortune to produce plus a ton of time and I barely have any views, what gives?!!!!!” I even thought about putting it on hold. Even as I’m typing this I’m laughing at how entitled and ridiculous I sound. Aside from the small percentage of first time videos that go viral, since when does someone get a shit ton of engagement on YouTube after posting 11 episodes without any advertising.

That would be like someone creating a blog from scratch with 11 blog articles and wondering why they don’t have a solid number of readers, comments, or sponsors.

So as with everything, I thought this would be a good teaching experience for all of you. For anyone who is interested in starting a video based channel or really anything digital for that matter, this episode is for you.

3 Steps Towards Developing and Understanding Yourself

To up level our lives, it requires us to take a deep inventory of ourselves; our behaviors, beliefs, habits, character assets, charter challenges, and our actions. This by the way isn’t easy or comfortable, but it is necessary and well worth it.

You can certainly try to reach your next set of goals without doing the inner work, but I guarantee you won’t be happy with the result. I know this because I actively tried to avoid that work for many years, and I couldn’t figure out why I felt stuck and nothing was working. Although I was working my ass off and I was taking massive action and risk, I was a mess, unhappy, and unfulfilled.

When I finally got sick and tired of banging into the same rock wall, I surrendered and asked for help, to dive deeply inside. Doing personal development work each and everyday has taken me from surviving to thriving. I’m a better boss, a better negotiator, a better problem solver, a better friend, fiancé, and an overall better me.

You see if we don’t take the time and actions to learn how we get in our own way, then we can’t get of our own way to grow and achieve bigger, grander, amazing things. WE deserve the best in life and WE are worth doing the work to be our best selves.

Here are some action steps you can take today to get the process going:
1. Suscribe to some personal development podcasts that resonate with you ( mine will be launching here in 2 weeks, ProjectME the Podcast with Tiffany Carter). Just search “personal development podcasts.”

2. Buy a @tonyrobbins book 📖 or listen to books on @audible_com if you prefer. Other great authors I love are @melrobbinslive@iammelwells @brenebrown @jensincero@thechampagnediet @loriharder@louise_hay_affirmations.

3. Write 📝. If you don’t have a cute journal it’s ok. Use what you got, write in your notes app on your phone 📱 during lunch. Whatever writing ritual you create and stick with is what will serve you best. Free write on your biggest fears, insecurities, dreams, feelings and so on. The authors I listed above will prompt with you with questions to write about.

Taking action in developing and understanding yourself is one of the greatest acts of self-love.

How to Create Facebook Ads that Convert into Leads and Sales, with guest, Lorell Lane Facebook Ads Expert and Founder of The Social Sales Lab EP089


When should I start doing Facebook ads? How much do I need to spend for results? Is it worth doing? Why aren’t my ads making me any money? What am I doing wrong?

I get it! Spending a minute in Facebook Business Manager as a newbie is enough to put your stomach in knots. Hell, that can happen to me and I use the platform daily.

You probably don’t know this about me, I’ve spent millions of other people’s money designing and managing Facebook ad campaigns for corporate clients since Facebook ads started many years ago.

Pressing that publish button is scary when it’s your own money on the line, it’s actually a more uncomfortable feeling than gambling in Vegas, at least then your expectation is that you are likely to lose. With Facebook ads, most people have the belief that they should make back more than they spend, in fact it should be at least double.

You guys are smart, if it was that straightforward and simple, every single company would be pouring their entire advertising budget solely into Facebook advertising.

With Facebook ads, knowledge isn’t just power it is necessary to have a solid chance of a great ROI. I brought on a Facebook ads expert to answer all of your questions and clear up any myths .

Lorell Lane is the Founder of The Social Sales Lab, an online program helping business owners scale thru Facebook ads

Lorell started her career in the corporate world working with major TV networks such as Univision, NBC, the CW, and Viacom to generate millions in sales by creating ad campaigns. She’s helped scale the sales growth for brands and clients around the world. After seven years in corporate world, and becoming a mom of 2, she decided to quit the corporate life and use her experience in advertising to help women in business gain financial freedom. Now she helps online business owners and sales professionals accelerate their business by using Facebook ads through her signature online program, the Social Sales Lab.

The Reason Why I Avoided Starting ProjectME for SOOO Long

You guys may think I’m CRAZY, but I have to share my truth. I avoided starting ProjectME because of the personal branding necessary to have professional photoshoots. MY LORD was I terrified. This shot was towards the end of the day so I was a bit more comfortable, but still not allowing my self to enjoy it. I was too caught up in being worried that I look puffy or have rolls. I’m in recovery for exercise addiction, so having my picture taken is clearly still a huge trigger for me.

I knew I had to think bigger and remember I’m building this brand to empower and educate women to be financially free and independently wealthy. If people are focused on my body versus my message and teachings, then they have deeper issues to resolve.

I kept saying all during the shoot that I’m so comfortable in video and audio, but the still photography makes me feel so vulnerable and exposed. AAAAAAAH I can scream now recalling how I felt that day.

The lesson here is I didn’t allow borderline crippling anxiety to squash my vision. It took me months to do it, BUT I DID IT! I did it anyway and so can you. Whatever is stopping you from going after your dreams, there is really no way around it, you just have to do it anyway. Plus I hired a kick-ass empowered female team to support me through my vulnerable moments, and help me get out of that damn head of mine.

Thank you to my kick-ass photographer and successful entrepreneur Randi @bossbabephotography, my on-site glam Joanna from @cheektocheekartistry, my dynamic hair duo @alizalauren (color master) and @brittneyhodgins_hair(extensions guru). You ladies helped me get through one of my biggest fears, I’m so so grateful 🙏💜.

Manifesting Money: How to Manifest More of it into Your Life EP088


Three of my top tips to manifesting more money into your life.

First let me lay some foundation for you. I have been practicing the Law of Attraction and manifestation for 16 years. Everything that has happened in my life good, bad, and ugly I believe has happened for me not to me. That belief alone may trigger you as it used to piss me off when I would read it or hear other gurus in the manifesting space say it, now I know it as my truth.

Every single thing I have strongly desired in my life I have manifested, this doesn’t mean I sat on a lounge chair sipping champagne and everything from money, handbags, chance meetings, incredible opportunities, and luxurious trips just “happened.” For a lot of it I had to work for it, sometimes for many years, and for some of it, it did fall into my lap…the most challenging part of manifesting is the exact reason why so many people give up on it too soon and say things like, “oh that manifesting is BS,” or “manifesting just doesn’t work me” (which both beliefs will certainly make it not work BTW).

Let me give you a fast track pass to manifesting money. On this episode, I share my top three tips to manifesting money. These tips come from years of refining my manifesting practice, reading at least a hundred books and countless articles on the Law of Attraction principles and practices, and studying privately with a well-respected manifestation guru and spiritual teacher.

“TIFFANY, how do you do it?”

“How did you create a successful business and kept it growing for 10 years?!”

SIMPLE ANSWER: not alone. Yes when you first start, if you have no capital to invest or no investors, there are a ton of things you will need to do solo to manage expenses. As soon as you can please hire help, or hire an intern (or 3).

When I first launched my marketing/social media firm 10 years ago, I contracted one tech guy and brought on one intern (from my alma mater, @emersoncollege). As I grew, I brought in more people, paid for more of their time, and outsourced as much as possible. This way I could focus on what I do best (strategy, client relationships, contracts, and motivating my team).

There is no special badge you get for being a martyr and doing it alone, nor is there a bigger check waiting for you. In fact, if you don’t scale your business, you will lose it or sabotage its growth.

The creative energy from working with a diverse team is incredible. Some of my company’s biggest success stories weren’t my idea, and I’m perfectly ok with it.

If you don’t have the funds to hire people right now, bring an intern on board, schedule a meet up with other local entrepreneurs to brainstorm ideas for one another’s businesses, or recruit your Aunt Judy who is board as hell anyway (no I’m not kidding).

Don’t do it alone. You don’t need to nor are you meant to. Just make sure everyone you bring on paid or unpaid signs an agreement and a NDA (non-disclosure agreement). Yes even Aunt Judy has to sign ✍️ NO EXCEPTIONS.

Trusting Your Gut over Your Logic with Guest, Kate Taylor, High Profile Fashion Stylist and Founder of Stylist School EP087

A mark of a successful entrepreneur is someone who trusts her gut instinct over logic.

Imagine if some of the most famous innovators of all times listened to other people’s opinions and logic over their strong intuition. We wouldn’t have air travel, electric cars, or even the Internet!

When we get quiet enough to tap into our inner guide, and listen to that voice…our questions are answered, our confusion turns to clarity, sometimes we don’t love the answers as that means we have to take uncomfortable action.

I have spent most of my life ignoring and second-guessing my intuition, which made my life up until four years ago waaaaay harder and more chaotic than it needed to be. If I could time travel and send a message to that 11 year old little Tiffany, I would tell her that her instincts are never wrong even when people she trusts tells her that they are, I would tell her that she already has the answers and it’s safe to trust that guiding voice in her head.

Since I can’t time-travel, I’ll put these life lessons into a podcast to remind you that you can trust yourself, and your best life guide already resides within you.

Today, I want you to meet a friend of mine who followed her gut instinct over logic, over years of schooling, over a lifetime pursuing this goal, and over what her friends and family would think. Kate Taylor is a high profile fashion stylist and the Founder of Stylist School, an online teaching academy to train people on how to be a successful fashion stylist.

Kate worked as VP of Sales & Marketing for a clothing company – where she got to work as a fashion designer.  She learned the ins-and-outs of behind the scenes fashion…from styling to design to trade shows to fashion weeks. Through all of these career changes and opportunities, Kate realized that there was one common factor in all of them. What she loves the most is helping people truly discover their image and allow it to shine.

Fuck Hustling and Honor Yourself

How many of you can relate to this beautiful drawing? Sometimes we can get so caught up in building our business and our dream life, that we forget to look at what’s going on around us. Guilty as charged.

I used to believe that the more I worked the faster I would accumulate wealth. Therefore, I would work head down for 12-14 hours a day 6 or 7 days a week. You know what that got me? A happy bank account and an unhappy Tiffany.

After 7 years of this, I thought, “there must be a better way, an easier way.” So I did an experiment. I worked until my body and brain said it needed a break and then I took one. I asked my self what I needed, what would feel good and nurturing right now. Sometimes I took a walk, played with my dogs, called a girlfriend, watched reality TV (my guilty pleasure), took a nap, a yoga class, or just sat in silence. The results of this year long experiment were incredible.

My bank account was just as happy as before, and I became a lighter, softer, kinder, happier, relaxed version of my self. I never knew this person existed inside of me. I was always so intense. Now I find those people annoying, although I have great compassion for them.

The belief that we need to grind away to achieve success is 💩 💩. Working smart is necessary, but slaving away work is not. Tiffany 2.0 attracts inspiring opportunities and I find great solutions to challenges, since I’m able to be more clear-minded and creative. My writing ✍️ has a more relatable intimate tone, as I’ve become more loving towards my self.

Fuck hustling and honor yourself and your needs above all else, the rest will fall into place. You will have much more energy to achieve your goals, and have a lot more fun along the way.
