Fighting the Summer Spending Spree

Fighting the Summer Spending Spree

Let’s admit it: summer is the time of year when the pocketbook opens a little easier. It’s nice outside. If you have children, they’re wandering around the house a little bored. Friends send invitations to parties out on the deck or maybe at the beach. Amusement and water parks seem to call out to you…and once they lure you in with pretty lights   Continue reading this post >

4 Year End Financial Moves To End 2012 With a Bang!

4 Year End Financial Moves To End 2012 With a Bang!

I can’t believe it’s almost that time of year again! We’re saying goodbye to 2012….and it seems like we just said goodbye to 2011. This can be a crazy time for creatives. We’re busy building, sculpting, performing. But don’t forget that the end of the year is also a time to close the books on your financial life so you can   Continue reading this post >

How I Raised My Income $120 Per Month Without Working Harder

Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?

I realize I talk a lot in Abundance Bound workshops and this blog about avoiding “too good to be true”.

But there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to easily implement THE SAME strategy I used to pocket more money NOW.

How did I do it? Easy. I paid attention to taxes.

TAXES? UGHHH.

How can five little letters (t.a.x.e.s.) put people to sleep so easily? It’s the same for me. I can’t stand tax discussions.   Continue reading this post >

A Birthday Sale!

“We turn not older with years, but newer every day.” -Emily Dickinson

It’s my birthday! And it’s not just ANY birthday…today I’m actually turning 40 YEARS OLD! Isn’t that crazy?

I remember when I was a teenager, 40 seemed practically ancient. Now, the funny thing is that I still keep waiting for that magic day when I’ll feel like a “real” grownup.

Of course I realize there’s a school of thought that says that especially as an actor I should be   Continue reading this post >

Did We Strike a Nerve?

So…wow.

Bryan and I have simply been blown away by the response to last week’s “Living in Possibility” call! Hundreds of you joined us for a conversation about living life powerfully as artists who CHOOSE to create the success you desire (and deserve) in every area of your lives. We suspected there would be a few motivated artists who might dive into the material, but we just weren’t prepared for the number of calls and emails we’ve received, sharing your questions,   Continue reading this post >

Let’s Talk About Mindset!

I had a session today with one of my clients. Her acting career is starting to take off which is so exciting. Moneywise she is also in really good shape. Since we started our work together she’s gotten much more organized, paid off lots of debt and is starting to focus on saving and investing.

Great right?

The problem is that in spite of all of the wonderful things happening in her life, this client really struggles with   Continue reading this post >

Where Do I Start???

It was about 10 years ago that I reached a breaking point in terms of money. I had lots of debt, an almost empty bank account, and just getting the mail would bring me to tears because of all the bills I had just received and I wasn’t sure how to pay. If something didn’t shift, I was pretty certain that my pursuit of an acting career was over, not to mention the fact that I’d probably have to move   Continue reading this post >

Last One for a While

So, we have some GREAT (and sad) news…

At Abundance Bound, we’re artists, and we’re, like you, busy. Not just about financial stuff, about creative stuff. Sometimes we’re trying to push out a new program, sometimes we’re working on the latest edition of a book, and often times we’re consumed, like you, with our artistic endeavors. I’m an active actor in the Los Angeles community, Bryan is, well, doing all the wonderful things Bryan does.

Which is why it’s with EXCITEMENT (and   Continue reading this post >
