Mind On My Money | Leanna Haakons

“It’s not about how much money you have. It’s what you do with it.” – Leanna Haakons

It’s okay to pursue money.

But as we work diligently at our jobs and side hustles, we can fall into the tunnel vision of solely caring about our paychecks. We look around and see our peers making more than us, so we start to work harder and harder. This is the trap, and if we don’t defend against this—we lose our ability to motivate ourselves.

Today, on the $mart Women Invest podcast, we are joined by Leanna Haakons to discuss the money mindset. Leanna is the Founder and President of Black Hawk Financial Inc. and also the author of Young, Fun & Financially Free: Live the Good Life Now and Build a Kick-Ass Future!

Tune in to today’s episode to hear Leanna’s insights about how to best move forward on the road to achieving personal wealth.

“It’s about mindset. And it’s not just about money. It’s your whole life.” – Leanna Haakons

Points to Keep In Mind

  • The first question to ask yourself is: why are you feeling financially hopeless?
  • Always balance the desire to have more money with not obsessing over numbers and comparison traps.
  • Establish what your financial nirvana is, and then push to achieve that reality.
  • Understand that you’re only here to live your own truth, and nobody else’s.
  • Check out the American Express Platinum Card.
  • Create lists of your top 3 needs and your top 3 wants.
