Podcast Title: Developing Your Money Mindset: Money as an Amplifier
Podcast Series: The Maven’s Keys to Financial Contentment
The Maven’s Keys to Financial Contentment is my idea that true financial contentment can be found when an overlap of money and beliefs occur. Many people ask the question of how to be “financially content” and this is a discussion to uncover those answers.

FOR THE VIDEO VERSION)
In talking about “Developing Your Money Mindset”, I want to begin this episode with an analogy to help unpack today’s discussion. I watch the Marvel movies and Netflix series because I do enjoy the entertainment value of the movies and Netflix series. And it occurs to me (and probably you also) that all the superheroes have this internal struggle that they go through in spite of their superpowers. You notice that? All of these characters all have an internal battle and as they are working towards resolving those internal struggles, they come across these villains or circumstances that engage their superpowers. But it is striking to me how the powers just work as amplifiers to what is already in them. So today I want to unpack our previous discussion on “developing your money mindset” and talk about “money as an amplifier. In the Netflix series, Daredevil, he is struggling with abandonment. And despite of his great powers and skills, the good aspects of his character won’t allow him to kill anyone while he’s using his power.
So in last’s week discussion, I challenged you to view money as just a proxy for a value transaction. It isn’t emotional we are emotional. It isn’t good/bad, we’re good or bad. So then it follows that money and/or resource acts as an amplifier of what is in us.
