Success Mindset

62 Things I Learned From an 8-Figure Entrepreneur

62 Things I Learned From an 8-Figure-1

Have you ever wished you could just suck up the mind of somebody who is doing exactly what YOU most want to do and truly pressing play in a way that just takes your breath away?

For me my ultimate dream and goal has long been to be able to make big money and an even bigger difference through my words. Writing? It’s kind of my thing. But writing (and speaking) are just my tools of the trade – what really gets me going is sharing my message.

You see, I believe that you really CAN have it all, and create a business and life completely on your terms, but that if you want it all? Then honey you gotta go on out and TAKE it all. This means- recognise that life is now and press the frick play! Even when or ESPECIALLY when you don’t know how / can’t afford to / don’t have time / your spouse thinks you’re certifiable and so on.

And in now coming up to 8 years online I can safely say –

So long as you DO keep on taking action, no matter how imperfect it may be, and you keep your dreams top of mind, you sure as heck WILL get there.

I believe that as firmly as I believe the sky is blue, and to be honest I’m so certain of my RIGHT to live my life on my terms that if I had to keep on figuring it all out FOREVER myself and knew that everything would take 100x as long as I expect it to, I’d still keep on keeping on.

That being said? Sometimes it sure doesn’t hurt to have an influx of wisdom and inspiration from someone who has been where you want to go, fought the same battles you’re going to fight, and can share with you the gold that will ultimately save you time and money and CATAPULT you there.

My recent 4-day VIP experience with Brendon Burchard in Santa Clara was just such a time.

And here is what I learned …

1. What is moving the needle for you? MEASURE and focus on the things that matter. These are: reach, and revenue.

2. The 3 things you need to consider to get to the top and stand out: articulation, consistency, excellence – ask yourself which level of each you have. Commonsense is not always common practice!

3. Create 5 blockbusters. Stop. Optimise.

4. Connect back to your higher purpose: what are the questions you will ask yourself at the end of your life? Live accordingly.

5. 10X meaning: beyond money, what is the next level of meaning for you? THIS will take you to the next level. The meaning is what will keep you up at night, NOT the money.

6. How to 10X your message: it has to feel alive. It has to be fiery. There has to be EMOTION in it. How can you tap back into the energy you had when you first got into it?

7. The best thing you can do to 10X is to get your life right.

8. Solving problems has become a commodity; it’s not enough. If Google already has the answer then what can YOU offer? – the iPhone didn’t solve a problem, it introduced a new aspiration to us. What is YOUR aspirational message?

9. Note: if you’re fatigued in your industry it’s because you’re solving problems not creating aspirations.

10. 10X your methodology: how well does your audience actually know and care about you? Share your stories, your struggles, your strengths – often. Express humanity. Be raw, and real.

11. When it comes to success, and what you’ve achieved, show your gratitude not your arrogance.

12. Who you BE and what you COMMUNICATE will dwarf every marketing campaign you could ever do.

13. Customers must be taken through an onboarding process, not just ‘thrown in’.

14. The Secrets to Success are – Humor – have fun and be okay with criticism in your business. Have a good model that works FOR you. Be different – what’s your point of distinction?

15. She who dominates their niche is she who has the most strategic content.

16. It’s easier to blame fear then yourself. Fear is NOT the #1 problem, sustained motivation is the #1 problem.

17. The moment you become great is the moment that ease and comfort are overcome by the desire to communicate and contribute, combining creative expression and challenge.

18. Motivation is when you turn your fears into choices based on your aspirations.

19. Motivation is – sparked by something (ambition and expectancy) – sustained by something (attention and effort) – amplified by something (attitude and environment)

20. Ambition is not a dirty word! It’s okay to want more!

21. Expectancy is the internal belief and faith that we can activate a desire – if you can’t see it in your mind you won’t even begin!

22. Ask: is this an INTEREST for me or is it a MISSION for me? Only the latter should matter.

23. Focus on the struggle. It is not EASY, but it is worth it. Honour the struggle.

24. Remember: people need to know that what you teach them will stick.

25. Ask: what would make me love it more?

26. 3 phrases men should know 🙂 Tell me more Sorry honey. that’s so hard Honey, I’ve got your back. I’m with you.

27. 3 phrases women should know 🙂 You’re so smart.. Honey, I need your help; you’re so smart. Do you want sex?

28. When you knock on the door of opportunity, do not be surprised if it’s work that answers.

29. Entitlement is the opposite of responsibility.

30.Develop frameworks for what you teach. Ask – what is it about me that makes me an exceptional person that people would want to follow?

31. You’ve been through enough. It’s your time.

32. The thing that’s stopping you from going to the next level is that you’re obsessing about it because you’re good at it and it’s easy – get over yourself.

33. It’s not ego to know your strengths.

34. Know why you’re exceptional and be able to articulate it.

35. Know the power of the reveal – and use it.

36. When considering products – What level of people do you want to work with? What do you want to change? What would you have to build? Who would you have to be? What would you have to create? What do you want YOUR lifestyle to be about? Ask people what they’d need to know. And reverse engineer the above.

37. It’s not about what you COULD create, it’s about what you SHOULD create.

38. Protect your lifestyle.

39. Simplify everything.

40. Never build yourself a job without testing the waters.

41. Check your emotion about your business – anything you slather with hate cannot grow.

42. If there is a skill that is critical to the development of your business to the next stage then get over your fear and learn it. You should not be outsourcing stuff you can’t understand and manage!

43. Any dream that lives in someday never sees the sunlight.

44. The ultimate skill is becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable: what’s your gateway to a million dollar business?

45. 5 Rules For Life Have vision for your life Believe in your ability to figure things out Have fun achieving your dreams no matter what Be patient but always persistent Respect and love other people also playing this game of life

46. If you don’t get excited about your message and philosophies, slow the f&*k down and go figure out who you are again.

47. (These next few are from Jeff Walker who popped up mid-3-million-dollar launch to share a few nuggets – We all get sick of our marketing before our market does.

48. People will come for your content and they’ll stay for the connection.

49. It’s not about being perfect with your messaging, it’s about sharing from the heart.

50. When you’re tired, and the tech stuff makes you want to scream, or you’re about to create a message. stop first and reconnect to your higher purpose.

51. (Back to Brendon) The time to have the map is before you enter the woods: know where you’re going.

52. Just because people complain does not mean you need to comply.

53. Challenge! What can you automate right now?

54. To extend beyond your capabilities you need to CELEBRATE: Stretch Growth Fatigue Overwhelm Uncertainty Struggle

55. If you don’t challenge people, you won’t have influence with them. Without challenge they won’t move into aspiration, growth, or lifelong fan status. Challenge character, growth, excellence.

56. To stand out and drive people to action, focus on the potential of people not on their fears and problems.

57. On clients expressing their fears: “I hear you. Shut the f&*k up, Let’s go”

58. Focusing on limiting beliefs as a coach will limit YOU and your growth because you believe in and focus on limiting beliefs! Believe in the STRENGTH of humans.

59. Don’t be another problem maniac: if your brand is challenged stop limiting and start challenging! It’s the difference between saying stuff like ‘you have a problem with focus’ vs ‘grant me the strength to focus’.

60. The next level is always consistency and momentum.

61. There’s no traffic after the extra mile.

62. That little space between reaction and intention is when you consciously design your life.




A One-Time Live Online Workshop with Katrina Ruth, on How to Make Money Anywhere, Anytime, With ZERO Dependance on Any One Platform, Program or Tool … Aka JUST BECAUSE THAT’S WHO YOU ARE … AND – With the Greatest of Ease

Okay. Imma gonna get straight up on your ass about what needs to be said here, because obviously SOMEBODY needs to hit the damn truth button on this shit!!

Straight up from the gate up, you do NOT make money because of Facebook.

Because of Instagram.

Because of email.

Because of ANY of this shit.

You make money because of who you are and what you decide and make NON-NEGOTIABLE, period, The End!

As you may be aware, in the last day or so Facebook and Instagram went down down down OH so far down.

After a few obligatory ‘stop the world!’ messages to my team and friends (which resulted in a serious convo with one of my soul sisters as to whether we’d now have to become porn stars instead), I got back to business.

The business of posting and selling shit on Facebook, which is admittedly a big part of what I do each day???

Nah … the business of being ME, because THAT is what I actually do each day, and also?

It’s what gets me paid.

Funnily enough, as is often the way with these things, just yesterday somebody was making smart-ass comments to me about how all the coaches would survive if there was no Facebook or Instagram.

“How would they survive?”, I asked myself.

“Well, I have no idea how THEY would survive but I sure as shit know how I would survive:

Very fucking well indeed, thank you very much, because that is who I AM”

Word to the wise:

A) I was making serious money long before I used Facebook for it.

Allow me to say it again for those in the back: YOU MAKE MONEY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE LEVEL YOU VIBRATE AT.


It’s an energy thang baby, a frequency shiz niz, it’s just who you ARE and how life works for you.

Handy hint —> the level of wealth you enjoy or moan over now is already just a direct reflection of your frequency, and expectations. It ain’t got jack shit to do with what you do, and it certainly is not a product of which tools are available to you.

It is a product of YOU.

When the socials went down today it was FASCINATING to me to observe the response that came through in the in-between-y bits when people managed to post something.

People worrying about how it would impact their business, or feeling in some way handcuffed.

This is crazy! It’s fear-mongering at its worst and it’s an absolute SHITTY mentality as far as belief systems around where results come from.

Do you know what I felt, when I realised we couldn’t use Facebook as normal for our biz stuff?


It took a minute to click in, but I found myself getting all wriggly and lit up with excitement.

I love a damn challenge 🙂

And since I also choose to believe that everything is happening FOR me, I also took personal responsibility for this occurrence.

Obviously FB and Insta had gone down in order to force me to finally pull my finger out and learn how to go live on YouTube.

But mainly – hell YEAH to the opportunity to get creative!

Probably taking the whole thing a little bit too far, as I worked my way through some sprints on the rower post HIIT weights session, I started to imagine what would happen if Facebook was TRULY GONE AND NO LONGER OF THIS WORLD.

I got MORE excited with each second that passed (which makes me remember how damn BORED I get as soon as I know how to easily do something aka make money all day err day on Facebook), and I also found myself AUTOMATICALLY GOING INTO ZAG MODE.


You know, like ‘When They Zig you Zag’. A classic, if ever there was one!! Thank you Dad, for always having all the BEST books on your bookshelf for me to start reading from 10 or 11 years of age!

See, I have a belief system which works rather well for me and I guess is just part of who I am –

I believe that things ALWAYS work out perfectly for me, and are always done FOR me …

I believe I am always on path …

I believe I always make the right decision, so therefore I never have to beat myself up, I just wait for the lesson –



I believe that my outcomes are predicated only by my choices, and that there is nothing I EVER need in order to get or maintain or ONLY improve on an existing outcome.

It’s this mindset that causes me to wonder what TF it has to do with anything when people say things like they can’t be in shape ’cause they have kids or just had a kids … or ’cause they can’t get to the gym (for example)

And it’s also this mindset that causes me to KNOW that the money I make and the impact my soul work has in the world has NOTHING to do with what tools or platforms are available to me or working.

I programmed myself a long time ago to IMMEDIATELY swerve if something was no longer serving me or working for me. It’s this part of my mind which therefore right away started coming up with creative and imaginative solutions for how business would OF COURSE carry on (and improve!) with or without social media.

And it’s also this part of my mind which of course right away finds a way to monetize the damn thing and turn it into epic and highly helpful content for you, aka this workshop!

It’s just how I think, and who I am. I am simply unavailable for NOT moving forward, and nothing will ever ever EVER make me believe that I have to depend on anything outside of me for my results.

So why a whole damn workshop on the concept?

Well, it’s more than that, isn’t it?

It’s a mindset of believing that you always get what you want.

It’s a mindset of believing that everything always works out for you.

It’s a mindset of believing that NOTHING can stop you.

That everything is working in your favour.


That you can monetize ANYTHING, any time you choose, and with no ‘requirements’ in order to do so!

I don’t have to tell you that obvs the outcomes you get directly follow and reflect your mindset and your beliefs!!

Here is what else, as well:

This is not just about making money any time, from any thing, and knowing that even with challenge or things going wrong you only THRIVE and EXPAND!!

For me this goes hand in hand with duh – I get to do all of that on my terms.

By having FUN, and being in FLOW, and with ease.

In fact, the more money the more ease!! #justhowitis

That I can literally click my fingers and money shows up for me, meanwhile I’m just over here doing ma thang.

Speaking of which –

I think it’s about time I shared exactly what I currently DO all day, yeah? And how I do it / fit it all in / honour ALL the areas, PLUS manage to spend so much time sitting on my ass doing sweet FA!

In other words … !

Let’s hang out together this weekend!!

1) How to Monetize ANY Situation, Including But Not Limited To:

* When social media or any typically depended upon platform goes down (including examples of how I have down this several times, to the tune of tens of thousands)

* Hater situations (including examples, again multiple times, again tens of thousands of dollars)

* When you make a fool of yourself / something embarrassing happens or you screw up (also examples! also lots and lots of lovely moolah)

* Basically how to turn any and all life situations, moods, changes of the moon, emotional ups and downs, real life SHIT, to money!

2) Why the ‘When Shit Happens’ times are often the BEST times to make money, aka this is where I teach you what it really means to understand human psychology in terms of SALES, and the mindset of being an actual IN THE FLOW entrepreneur, who ALWAYS sees opportunity and jumps straight on it

3) When NOT to Monetize (okay that one you can have for free – never!!)

4) Understanding Where Money Really Comes From – and aligning yourself TO the frequency of wealth, such that you can literally NOT.BE.IMPACTED by anything that 99.99% of people think will cost them business

5) Money Vibration Principles Revealed (… my own personal philosophies and things that I live by / instil into my being around this, including my own daily practices)

6) Coding For Success

* How to ALWAYS have an endless stream of ideas

* AUTOMATIC continual unleashment of creativity and imagination, especially in so-called times of struggle

* Seeing past problems and accessing higher self in order to always know the answer, and how to move forward

7) Programming to Upgrade – the beliefs, energetic states and emotional patterns you require in order to be this person, have all this work for you, ALWAYS see and have the ability to act on the shit that will most pay off

The ‘Do What You Want All Day’ Bit:

* Exactly how my typical day flows and how I operate for maximum efficiency of time, energy, mental acuity, soul connectedness, etc

* Getting it all done as a busy entrepreneur (and single Mum, in my case) who also refuses to operate at anything less than EXCELLENT in terms of self-care, fitness, fun, playtime, etc

* Exactly what I do all day, broken down to the detail, to helm this becoming-8-figure-empire

* Exactly what I do NOT do all day, either it just gets ignored (hint: a LOT that most online marketers think matters!), or I let other people do it for me

* Calling in soulmate support, even long before you are ready to afford it

* Optimizing energy, focus, personal power, happiness, general flow. Aka mindset and also brain / nutrition hacks and so on


AND, while we’re at it, we will also be talking INSTANT MANIFESTATION. The exact process I use to bring the future into the NOW, by clearing all blocks existing between its reality in the quantum and its physical manifestation in the now!!



I’ll be doing this ‘Rapid-Fire’ Session at the end!!

1) What it really means to be magnetic online – hint: it’s not about having a pretty and polished website or online presence!

2) Bringing the ‘in private / behind the scenes’ version of you to the public

3) Unapologetic messaging and soul baring to call in your true #soultribe

4) Audience quality vs quality, and active elimination of those who don’t ‘HELL yes’ on your content

5) People don’t buy your products, they buy you. No – people don’t buy you, they buy your energy!! What that means and how to let it out

6) Being real about where you need to take care of YOU in order to be able to show up and shine fully

7) Keeping a laser-focus and tunnel-vision on your own path, and having the courage to pave the way that feels right for you even if it’s not been done before

8) Discernment to walk the line between being polarising and positively outrageous as opposed to just a hot mess 🙂 Scaling and magnetizing FROM the chaos of creativity and following the true artists way!

9) Knowing which ideas to work, what will sell, and how best to sell it so that the entire launch and selling experience is fun AND rewarding for both your audience and you

10) Creating hell yes offers that make them scream yes!

I know!
