THE BUCK STOPS HERE (Read time 0:51)
While others frantically fret about not having enough, you’ve been handed an unlimited all-access pass to the creative field of ALL possibilities—the knack for cooking up ways to make a buck, save it, spend it and give it away. Why you? Because you’re different than the others. You’re a crazy, creative, genius, artist, entrepreneur, and the right hemisphere of your brain fires on all quantum, cellular cylinders. Face it, you’ve had the gift for “making things up” since you were a kid. Whether it was turning a rock into a toy, a doll into a princess, or a bag of marbles into a game. And making up ways to manifest more money is just another game! Here’s a clue: inventing ways of manifesting more money comes from the same creative, divine energy as composing a score, writing a book, painting a picture, inventing an awesome product, or devising a new plan to inspire and motivate your sales team.
Instead of relying on the tired, worn-out excuse of “not being able to do your life’s work because of money pressures,” perhaps you could try creating, devising, fabricating, formulating, dreaming up and inventing new, innovative ways to provoke more of it to flow your way. So you can get on with the task of doing your life’s work.

| Resistance, Pressman |
Thanks for the great book recommendation, Michael. The WAR of ART, by Pressman, is very stimulating, inspiring, challenging. "The paradox seems to be, as Socrates demonstrated long ago, that the truly free individual is only free to the extent of his self-mastery. While those who will not govern themselves are condemned to find masters to govern over them." Resistance is a mental dragon. More money buys us a bigger cage, but there in no freedom until one learns to slay the dragon.

| creative again |
I use to be afraid that as I grew up and had to be responsible I'd lose my imagination level - and for awhile I did. It comes back if you want it to. The more I've done in small projects the last few years, the more my creativity comes back. It also helps I have tried to get rid of a lot of stress. Now I've got more ideas than I can keep up with ( or afford) :-)

The "Sky is the limit!" or more like "Our mind is our limit!" You hit the nail on the head with this one Michael. The reason for creativity is to create positively with some sort- any- direction attached that can help to hit the target! A mind full of positivity, hope, focused direction, creativity and the desire to grow is quite limitless. If life is viewed negatively- which stifles creativity- negativity and lack is what will be returned in life.

| Frame of mind is everything |
When I was unemployed I found so many new ways to pay the bills, this is true! Granted, many of them involved waking up at ungodly hours of the morning to make stuff happen, but I did it, and was amazed at how much more CASH goes instead of a paycheck. Although, much of that cash profit goes out the door now that PayPal issues 1099's....

The only time money is challenging for me is when I'm pitching investors. As many documentries I've done, I still get nervous when I'm in the "Big Pitch" meetings. Sorry for my broken English:)

This is gonna be short! "The right brain firing on all cylinders?" Mine is 'supercharged' and then some! Are you kidding? I defy anyone to match my current chutzpah! We've been in Panama 6-7 wks and the accomplishments have been beyond astounding! Seriously! I defy ANYONE (including you) to top my current status....and....oh, I'll never see 70 again!

This is a wonderful space that Michael has created here full of like minds and it appears like hearts. Money is made up, someone made it up! and it's the the thing that we use to get things done in the world but its not the only thing that gets things done. Connecting, Helping, sharing is free! And is the basis of everything getting done. Nuff said

| Money Makes The Word Go Round! |
Everyone asks me what lens to you, what brand I shoot with, what paper do I use, what kind of light do I use, what type model or actress do I graviate to, what my techniqus is for writing screenplays; etc, etc..... I always preface any answer with this. "Before you concern yourself with artistic technique you need one ingredient that never fails you. An art patron." They are on every street corner in America. Someone just wanting and waiting to support your art" Without art patron; your rent doesn't get paid." Go find one today. Now your money problem are gone! "

| The problem with money... |
As I read your honest blogs, by heart aches for you all..these are not easy times to be an artist..I can get away with it, because I live in a less expensive enviornment, live on less, create more to lower expenses...I also make money, itself on my art, but not large amounts...people love the art I create, which is gratifying. I still have new frontiers to discouver and open doors I am preparing for...there are always paths to pursue..Seems to me, society would really benefit if education was free...strengthen all involved. I think also the poor should be given FREE U-Pick gardens....It's economical... I just really hope for everyone the very best in life, and a quality life, if not quantity... Rachel

I've read a number of self-help books over the years in hopes of coaxing some more success out of my life. Recently I read the Secret then saw the movie. The movie followed by some Tony Robbins video finally moved me the right way. It wasn't necessarily my technical skills or knowledge of music and business that's held me back- its my attitude! After just a week of visualizing what I really want to accomplish, focusing on solutions and not problems and trying to find and follow my path of success I've made some extraordinary progress. I feel better, my phone is ringing more with new financial opportunities and it's all I can do to keep up. I'm not fixed but I'm healing and dealing and that's a start. Face forward!!!

| Freedom |
Freedom is just another word for nothing left to loose. Or another way to look at it is what you choose to do. If you where not already in a position send your kids to $50,000 a year schools what would you decide to do. Most of our road blocks are in our minds and it's the choices we make that allow us to create.

| Make It Up! |
Such wisdom. I am looking into creating something new. Iím even considering living somewhere less expensive to continue what I love. Maybe Austin, Texas, which has a music scene, but living expenses lower. For every $ worried about, There IS a $olution!!!

I have to comment on Donna's comment: Your kids don’t HAVE to go to $50K colleges. They can go to junior colleges and transfer to the big colleges/universitities for the last Two years...that’s what we did. As for our medical bills, we called the hospital and Negotiated with them and they DO negotiate down sometimes. Yes, jobs are scarce and Layoffs often translate into remaining worker bees responsible for twice the load. My husband and I are looking for other opportunities, looking at crazy possibilities, Even living in a mobile home while the kids are in college. Don’t rule out anything. And remember who you are...who you really are.

Easy for you to say. Do you have 3 kids in college at $50K a year? Do you have medical bills piling up? Are you in a job that just laid off half the staff and each of surviving workers have to do TWO jobs now?
