Joyce Marter is a licensed psychotherapist, entrepreneur, national public speaker, and a mental health thought leader. She is the Founder of Urban Balance (a national outpatient mental health company), a blogger for Psychology Today, and the author of The Financial Mindset Fix: A Mental Fitness Program for an Abundant Life.
Joyce Marter explains how her own emotional money issues led her to her current profession.
We talk about how psychologists often have money problems and how Joyce came to see that beliefs about her earning potential were holding her back.
Do some people come to be psychologists with unreal expectations as to what they can achieve given who they are and how they present themselves?
Joyce does a lot of personal work and believes that her business success is a direct result of that work.
The field of psychology is now examining mindfulness. This is leading them away from the pathology of emotions to a more inner direction of awareness.
Meditation and techniques such as yoga help us connect to our real essence.
We all have to do our own work in order to find our individual solutions.
Joyce recounts how reaching her breaking point financially taught her to ask for help and learn what she had to learn in order to become successful.
We hold on to what’s familiar, even if it’s not working.
Opening yourself to receive is not about receiving money, but about opening up to receiving love.
If we work on ourselves, it doesn’t just affect our money but rather many aspects of our life.
