69 Empowering Questions to Improve Your Social Work Money Mindset

Questions.

They’re as old as time itself, and yet many of us allow their full potential to fall flat on its face.

For most of us questions have become mundane, mediocre and routine expressions whose best uses are to help us locate lost items (“Has anyone seen my keys?), frustrate our teams (Why can’t you work with this budget?), or worse, talk down to ourselves (Why can’t I get it right?).

But questions can be powerful forces for mindset and behavior change if we let them.

There Are No Stupid Questions, Right?

I bet that when you were in school your teacher probably told you that there were no such things as stupid questions, which may not be entirely true.

You’ve got a super-efficient brain that goes to work to try to answer any question it’s given, but that’s only beneficial if you give your brain empowering questions to contemplate.

One of my favorite coaches, Tony Robbins, likes to say, “Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer,” and considering most of us ask the same uninspiring questions day in and day out, the answers we get back may be about as empowering as training wheels on a speedboat.

Not very, if you ask me.

Flip the Script

And while many routine questions may seem harmless in their posing, when it comes to the subject of social work salaries, income, and money, the danger of asking stupid questions is more of the same low wages and undervalued service – and no social worker that I know wants more of that!

So what can social workers do to begin to  improve their thinking around money and their income in the process?  Why, ask better questions, of course!

Not only will asking empowering questions force your brain to reveal to you more empowering answers, your answers may even revel to you how you might earn more money in the process.

Yeah, you!

Not sure what questions to ask? Don’t worry; I got you covered with 69 empowering questions you can ask yourself or a colleague to help you get started. My best advice to you is to assume that there is an answer to every question and that they all apply to you (for example, N/A is not a viable response). Use this to challenge your current thinking and help expand your mindset around what it means to be wealthy and a social worker.

The more specific you are, the better your results will be, so give yourself some time to go through the entire process and feel free to add more questions for yourself.

Journey Into Entrepreneurship & Parlaying Your Skills: My Interview With Jet Setting Jasmine

Have you ever wanted to talk to someone who had started a successful business and find out how they did it?

Well, have I got a treat for you!

A few months ago I attended the 2014 NASW National Conference. It was a star-studded event of social workers and world change makers that wasn’t to be missed. For me it was truly a magical event full of serendipitous encounters and life long connections.

Each day of the conference the breakout sessions were organized into topics such as Clinical Social Work, Ethics, Macro Practice and Finance. Of course I went to several of the Financial sessions, and was glad I did because that’s where I met Jasmine Johnson. When she stood up at one of our sessions and said that she’d started four successful businesses I just had to meet her.

A Master’s-level social worker and multi-passionate entrepreneur, Jasmine discusses:

  • how a conversation with friends turned into a successful fitness studio
  • the truth about what it takes to cut costs when you’re first starting out
  • how she uses her social work skills to create unique solutions for clients
  • the guilty pleasure that not only makes money but helps people get in touch with their sexy side

Jasmine’s businesses have been featured in the Tampa Bay Times, ZumbaExhilarate.com.au,  WBLS 107.5 FM, VividRadio SXM, and on NBC News Channel 8 to name a few, and after this interview, you’ll understand why. Jasmine is truly making waves as a social worker and is well on her way to riches and wealth.

Because we were in the middle of the Social Work Conference we conducted the interview in a busy hotel lobby, but don’t let that stop you from getting the valuable information that Jasmine had to share. And be sure to watch until the end. Jasmine has a great challenge for us all that can revolutionize your business and life  if you follow through. When you’re done, let us know the number one thing you’re going to take away from this post and share it with your friends.

See you on the rich side!

Spiritual Entrepreneurship and Living From the Heart: My Interview With Priscilla Muñoz

When Priscilla and I met it was social work love at first sight.

Somehow in the midst of 100+ people at a Live Your Legend meetup in NYC the only two social workers in the room were able to sniff each other out. Needless to say the connection was immediate and we found out very quickly that we had a lot in common and were both on a journey to live our richest lives. Continue reading

Napoleon Hill reading Think and Grow Rich

A few years ago I picked up a copy of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. This is a classic within the self-development and business arenas, and a must-read for anyone who wants to know how to deliberately create a rich life.

I had heard about it’s magical powers to transform mere mortals into money-making machines, and so I began to study it like a treasure map. Continue reading
