Money does not equal Math
How many of you would say you hate math? Therefore, you are not proficient at math? There
is a technical word for this. It’s called innumeracy. The word really doesn’t matter, it’s our
perception about math that is important.
The perception I want to talk about is that even if we say we hate math, or I’m not good at
math and trust me I’m right in there with you, we can be outstanding with our money. While
money uses numbers to represent itself, it is not about math. You can be a financial wiz using
4th grade level math skills. Seriously, I am talking addition, subtraction, multiplication and
division. AND we have calculators and spreadsheets to actually do the math!
If it’s not about the math – what is it about? The Story. Money is about the story of our
business or personal life. If you knew that your 4th grade self could be a whiz about your
money story would you feel inspired and more powerful? It’s true – the other very cool thing
about your 4th grade self is you had a rich imagination to go along with your killer math skills!
When you combine your brilliant and anything is possible imagination with your stellar math
skills you can create your very best money story.
