what's "The creative code" about?

This book isn't another dry manual on crunching numbers and making budgets or telling you to go save for a rainy day (you already know). Instead, it’s a vibrant journey into the heart of your financial life, designed especially for creatives like you. Imagine transforming your relationship with money by tapping into spiritual laws and universal energies that resonate with your artistic spirit.

  • "Foundations of Your Money Mindset" starts things off by introducing you to the 12 Universal Laws and how to raise your vibrational frequency to attract more abundance. It's about setting the stage with the right energy to make money matters a little more inspiring.

  • "Understanding Your Current Relationship with Money" is your chance to dig deep. You’ll uncover your money stories—those hidden scripts that have been directing your financial show from behind the curtains. Through fun exercises like Taking Inventory and Transforming Your Money Stories, you'll start rewriting those scripts to star you as the savvy creator of your own wealth.

  • Moving into "Transforming Your Money Mindset", we revamp old beliefs and introduce you to the power of positive thinking with affirmations and mindset shifts. This part also dives into forgiveness and letting go, because sometimes you need to clear out the old to make room for awesome new opportunities.

  • "Building a Positive Relationship with Money" shows how tying your self-worth to your creative output can be a game-changer. It's about overcoming the fear of putting a price tag on your work and truly embracing your value in the marketplace.

  • And because no show is complete without an encore, "Daily Practices for a Prosperous Life" and "Planning for Success" offer up daily habits and straightforward plans to keep your finances in tune. These sections give you the tools to keep the rhythm going, from daily affirmations to creating a prosperity plan that sings to your unique life tune.

Overall, this book is about more than just managing money—it’s about embracing a lifestyle where financial freedom and creative abundance play the lead roles in your life.
