Money Games

10 min money makersGuest Blog post by Jeanna Gabellini

When it comes to money, people get serious very quickly. And making a profit through your business can make you want to pull your hair out!

You start a business because it’s a way to make money, have more freedom and share your genius with the world.  But owning a business is not a guarantee to make the big bucks, because emotional triggers can get in the way … BIG time.

What if profit creation could be turned into a fun game?

Even if you don’t like board games, card games, video games or charades, there is always an abundance of games to choose from that could be fun, and lead to a massive increase in your bottom line.

There was a time when my profits plummeted because I was going through a rough relationship break up. I was flat broke and decided to play a game to annihilate my debt. Nothing else had worked and I was ready to change my attitude. I made a spreadsheet of my debt and monthly expenses.

Next, I focused on paying more than the minimum on each bill. There were some other rules I made to keep the structure exciting, based on my personality.

The game worked. I stuck with it because it felt empowering and fun! Yes, fun! And nine months later I was debt free. The game produced real world results while transforming my emotional relationship with debt.

I also created games for myself to increase my savings accounts. Again, I designed the game to win, knowing what works with my values and behavior style. I used advice from a long time friend and financial advisor to know how much and where to invest my money. I satisfied my emotional and mental well-being. And I pumped up my savings at the fastest rate I’d ever experienced because the game held my focus.

Games that improve your wealth setpoint cause you to be committed in a way that inspires, rather than putting constraints and structures on yourself, that begin to feel like punishment.

One game does not fit all. Your game must be designed to fully support your desired end results, values and behavior style, and be able to keep your money gremlins afar.

Here’s how you start:

1.   Paint the picture of what it looks like when you win.

2.   Choose a start and end date to the game.

3.   Create rules that inspire you to stick with it.

4.   Choose an accountability partner if that will give you strength.

5.   Structure the game in a way that you’ll be able to see every tiny bit of progress.

6.   Be willing to stick with the game for the sake of something grander in your life.

Here are some topics that impact your wealth, that you can use to create a game and see an increase in income, joy and freedom.

1.   Pay off debt.

2.   Increase monthly or yearly profits.

3.   Increase profits for a specific product or service.

4.   Work less, while maintaining your profits or even increasing them.

5.   Increase your number of ideal clients and customers.

6.   Raise your prices (I used a game to successfully more than double my coaching fees in one month!).

7.   Increase productivity with your team.

Remember, if the game isn’t fun, you need to create new rules or a new game. Make sure your desired outcome is juicy and inspired or no game will yield results.

In this kind of game there are no losers. This is a journey of personal transformation where you make steady progress and win by making shifts in your inner and outer game.

The Power of Joint Ventures

Me as one of the sharks on “The Shark Tank” at The Joint Venture Experience. I was honored to be a part of the brilliant panel.

Building a business in a sustainable manner is a difficult task.  The stats about small business success rates are staggeringly horrible…which may in fact be an understatement.

It is hard to fathom 95% of all small businesses fail inside of 3 years…it makes me wonder how is that even possible. Some even argue that those stats are understated because so many people start businesses and do not register and file for business licenses etc.
Regardless if you are an entrepreneur or want to be an entrepreneur you must ask yourself how the hell do I make sure that I do not end up as one of these statistics?
Well that takes navigating a veritable mine field.
Now if you had to REALLY navigate a mine field I believe you would want to walk a PROVEN PATH?
I know I would, I would literally step EXACTLY in the foot steps of someone who had walked through safely.
What if that was possible for your business?
What if you could simply follow the footsteps of those that have gone before and radically improve your odds of succeeding?
Well you can, I know that because I have done it, only 3 years ago I had never done a joint venture at all and in a few short years Joint Venturing has become one of my most significant and successful growth strategies.
So what is a joint venture?
Think of it this way, right now there are people and businesses that have lists of YOUR PERFECT customers, and they are wondering how they can leverage their list, that are trying to answer the question what else do their customers want and need.
If you could connect with these people, if you had a way to track leads and sales that worked for you and your potential JV partner, so you only paid for results, wouldn’t it be worth it??
Of course it would!
That is the power of Joint Ventures.
Last year in one of my early joint ventures I supported friends of mine Rich German and Milana Lishinsky in the launch of one of the best ideas that I have ever heard of…you know one of those brilliant ideas that once you hear it you wish you had thought of that…well more that once I have said “Damn I wish I had thought of that!”
What Rich and Milana have created is something called “Joint Venture Insider Circle” and it is a combination of training “How to be a great Joint Venture Partner” and even better a community of business people who are ready and willing to joint venture with YOU!!
Think about it, about 1000 members who get and understand joint venturing. All ready and willing to share your offerings with their list, it is business growth with a proven path.
Sounds good doesn’t it…that is because it is!
To find out more I want to invite you to download a free ebook that outlines the 12 reasons that joint venture partners say no and what you can do about it.  When you download the book you will also be invited to attend a complimentary webinar, I highly recommend that you attend the webinar you will learn tips and tools to start joint venturing NOW!
I have been so inspired by joint venturing that since joining the JVIC I have connected with and done JV’s with more people that I would have ever dreamed possible.

These JV’s have generated strong 6 figures in sales in the past 12 months and are sales that we would never have created without the support of our JV partners.
The truth is you could add strong 6 figures to your business next year if you master joint venturing as well.
Joint venturing, it is simply the fastest, most cost effective way to create a wave of new clients for our business NOW!
You owe it to yourself, your business and your family to master this as fast as possible!
