This week I had a really crazy full circle blogging moment and I had to share it with you.
When I was working my 9-5 job I felt so stuck. I knew I was unhappy but was unsure of what to do to remedy the situation.
The idea came for my mental health blog and I felt so excited and got to work on it right away.
However, as the months passed I continued not to make any money and my traffic seemed stagnant even though I was creating tons of content for my site.
It was really discouraging and I wondered if I was wasting my time and money trying to make this blog work.
During this time I found Amanda Frances and started listening to her on my headphones all day while I was at my day job.
Amanda Frances kept me going when it would have been easier to quit.
She made me feel like it was possible for me to make money online and be successful.
Without her, I don’t know if I would have been able to grow my mental health blog to what it is today.
Cut to this week and I got the opportunity to interview her on the Radical Transformation podcast. I couldn’t believe it!
You never know where it will take you and how things will come back full circle! Be sure to listen to the interview below.
It just made me stop and think how far I’ve come over these past few years.

. Here are five things I learned from Amanda Frances and her Money Mentality Makeover course.
You Can Get Paid for Spiritual Work
Amanda Frances showed me that it’s possible to be well compensated and do work that you’re passionate about.
I used to think that to make money I had to do a lot of things I hated like work a 9-5 or doing work that was boring and unfulfilling.
When I started following Amanda Frances I started to realize that it’s possible to get paid doing work that you care about.
Her life looked so fun and it made me wonder what MY life would be like if I were getting paid for talking about the things that I’m passionate about too.
That’s when I started to ask myself “what if” questions and dream up possibilities for my life.
“What if I could make money from a blog?”
“What if I could help women with their mental health?”
“What if I could share my personal development journey with thousands of women and get paid for it?”
It sounded too good to be true but Amanda Frances had showed me that it was possible to get paid to do spiritual work and I was off to the races.
Feel As If
I had heard a lot of manifestation teachers say to “act as if” when you were calling in the things you desire.
Amanda was the first person who taught me to FEEL as if.
Once you make your list of desires and have clarity around what you actually want your life to look like feel as if you already have it.
If you want to make six-figures feel what it would FEEL like in your body if that money was already yours.
Practicing feeling the feelings in your body helps your brain believe that your new reality is actually possible and help you get over your limiting beliefs.
This was very difficult for me but I’ve gotten better and better at it.
Often after I hold the feeling I will get an inspired idea to help me make my dream a reality.
I believe this practice gets my brain on my team and because it has a clear picture of what I’m trying to create.
Money Is Good
Amanda really challenged my beliefs about money.
She was the first person I heard talk about how money is a tool for good.
Prior to starting my business, I spent years doing service work and making just enough money to survive so this was a huge mindset shift for me.
She showed me that money is a resource for good and you can actually have a big impact when you have money to back your ideas.
This really motivated me and made me think about how different the world would be if women were able to create wealth.
I launched my second site www.faithmariah.com to help other women who wanted to start blogs and online businesses.
When I think about more wealthy women in the world I think about how our culture and earth can begin to heal.
Money allows you to take excellent care of yourself and your loved ones, fund nonprofits and help others in need.
It’s a resource for good.
Anything Is Possible
Listening to Amanda really made me believe that anything is possible.
She made me feel like the things that I wanted to do were actually possible and gave me permission to dream big.
I found her work at a time when I was so stuck in my life that dreaming big felt impossible.
I remember watching one of her videos and she had asked “if you could have anything, what would you REALLY want?”.
I really didn’t know how to answer that.
When I started writing I started to slowly get more and more clear about what I actually WANTED my life to look like instead of thinking about what I should do.
This is still an exercise I do each quarter and I really challenge myself not to put any limitations on myself and dream big.
Business Can Be Easy
I found Amanda when “hustling” was very trendy and popular in the entrepreneur space.
Everyone who was successful online was bragging about how hard they had worked to get there and it made me feel like I should ALWAYS be working.
Amanda grows her business in ways that are easy and fun.
I watched her break business rule after business rule and her launches were more successful and looked way more fun than what everyone else was doing.
It made me feel like I didn’t have to follow the rules and building my business could be fun instead of a huge struggle.
Don’t get me wrong, I put the hours in but the truth is I also took lots of breaks and time off too.
I believe NOT burning myself out has made my work more powerful and actually allowed me to help more people.
Be sure to give my podcast interview with Amanda a listen.
