Her first money memory
She grew up living close to Stanford University. Her parents told her when she was growing up, that if she can get into Stanford, they would find a way to pay for it. This cemented the idea in Erica’s mind that adults would find a way to pay for what she needed and money wasn’t something she had to focus on. It wasn’t until she became an entrepreneur that she realized that she had to deal with her money.
Her worst money memory
Erica had hit financial rock bottom when she moved to Australia. She was walking through the grocery store and knew she couldn’t buy anything.
Her best money memory
She pitched her services to someone at 3 times the rate that she had ever charged to anyone before. The person accepted the rate and Erica knew she was finally on to something.
One thing she does daily to build wealth consciousness
She takes time away and gets really clear on herself and the moment. This has helped things to flow and turn her ideas into success. By unplugging and being away from the computer, she has allowed herself to receive so much more in her business.
