It’s a program that I joined at the end of 2013 – if you feel like I have come out of nowhere or that you don’t understand how I get so much done – I can quite simply say, this program was the catalyst – it was driving force that propelled me forward in early 2014 and the stuff I learned in that program, I still use on a daily basis (multiple times a day).
The name might put you off. Or it might sound like it’s a load of nonsense or woo woo – as much as I love a good inspirational quote or share articles on Facey about the Full Moon – reading my stars is actually the extent and depth of my “woo woo” – stars and moon readings are far more for entertainment value than anything for me.
What I love about the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp is that it actually is NOT filled with woo woo.
It’s hard to explain, but if you have ever met me in person, you would know that I talk about the benefits of the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp to whoever will listen – it has had THAT much of an impact on me.
I actually wrote a blog post about “What I Learned Flying Business Class to Paris” here, after I had been in the Bootcamp for about 6 months, which talks about my experience and more benefits of the Bootcamp in depth for me at the time.
Basically what Denise teaches in the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp is all about getting to the root cause of your money blocks.
My friends have asked me what is a money block is and the best way to explain it is to say, if you are not earning the level of income that you want to be earning, you have some sort of money block. And the key to removing money blocks is to realise sometimes they come disguised as something else… like the fear of not being good enough or the fear of “putting yourself out there” to be criticized (Had both of these in spades yet I have created this business despite them).
We all have money blocks – even if you think you don’t – I talk about this topic constantly with my Photography Business Breakthrough girls, because your mindset “stuff” comes up especially when you are starting something new like a business, or stepping out of your comfort zone – and the fear can literally stop you from following your dreams.
Here are some examples of money beliefs or blocks that might resonate with you. I know I had a few of these.
What I love about Denise’s course compared with other “mindset” courses, is that Denise also has a practical, no BS approach to reaching your money goals. (I think it’s because she’s a Virgo like me heheh).
She doesn’t tell you to change just your thinking, buy some crystals and send you on your merry way – she gives PRACTICAL ACTIONABLE WAYS to not only upgrade your mindset but also increase your bank balance – in fact, don’t be surprised if you upgrade lots of areas of your life that you don’t even expect!
Want to know some upgrades that have happened for me personally since joining the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp?
Before Bootcamp, I did not have one friend who worked for themselves in the online space – now I have more than 10 girlfriends whom I speak to on a daily basis, who stay at my house, we go on holidays together, who UNDERSTAND all the trials and tribulations of being a female entrepreneur and especially one who needs to keep up with craziness of the ever changing online world. I didn’t know Denise before joining the Bootcamp and I met these women through Denise’s Bootcamp. I would not be where I am today without their support and guidance.
Before Bootcamp, my only income was photoshoots, where I was reliant on weather, on me, on my clients to make money. If I was sick or my client was sick, or it poured down rain or life happened and the shoot got cancelled, I made no money that day. Now I have not one but THREE online photography programs in addition to my photoshoot. I can run my online programs from wherever I am in the world, as long as I have wifi. I have travelled to Kenya, the Maldives, Bali, Paris, London, Ibiza, New York since joining the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp and I have photoshoot clients and students from my online courses all around the world now. Denise showed me how creating passive and location-independent income is key and I refer to her business model DAILY when I am thinking about where to take my business next.
Before Bootcamp, I pretty much was a one woman band when it came to my business and did absolutely everything myself. Now I have not one, but two people on my payroll, as well as multiple companies that I use for specific tasks as needed. I have learned the very difficult task of outsourcing and letting go, that Done is Better Than Perfect and I am focusing more on that in 2016. I took my gorgeous assistant Rach yesterday to the Junction to get her a brand spanking new iMac of her own, to make working for me more pleasurable for her and to allow more flexibility for both of us. Happy employees, happy life! Denise has taught me that it investing in people and systems to allow you to work more in your Zone of Genius, is vital not only for business growth, but to actually living the life that we work so hard for!
Before Bootcamp, I was truly unaware of how “lucky” I really am. Not only have I doubled my actual cash income in the past 12 months in my business, since being in Bootcamp I’ve realised how much I get “for free” in my life. I’ve manifested free upgrades to business class, entire weekends in Ibiza, hung out in invite only events, met lots of celebs, had gifts given to me out of nowhere for no reason at all, the list is honestly endless. Not free but out of nowhere (and just as I was about to give up my search and move from Sydney!) I completely manifested my little beachfront apartment, with garage, white and light and airy bedrooms, a dishwasher and water views, and available immediately (all things on my list of ‘must haves’). I think one of the biggest thingsDenise and the Bootcamp has taught me is that if you truly want something, there are ways to make it happen (beyond just “thinking about” wanting it).
My biggest upgrade of the past few years has been the result of all the other upgrades -my time freedom. The ability to go where I want to, when I want to (even if it just out the front door to the beach in the middle of the day!) and the beauty of removing myself from the rush and busyness of my previous corporate life to living life on my terms – in a more calm and enjoyable way.
Honestly I can’t recommend Denise’s Lucky Bitch Bootcamp enough. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a business – it is transformative regardless and you will upgrade the most unexpected areas of your life.
