In the Loop with Andy Andrews

On this week’s episode, we have Patsy Clairmont back in the studio to talk about her new book Twirl, and share some personal stories.

 

A lot of people have ideas but it’s rare the people can actually pull them off. Patsy brings people into her home who need to do something creative in their lives.

  • It’s a planned way of getting in touch with the stories that have been sitting inside you for years.

 

Patsy’s battle against agoraphobia:

  • I was an agoraphobic by the time I hit my early twenties and began to let my emotions rule my choices.
  • Once I learned I could make a choice in spite of my unstable emotions, then I began to find solid ground.
  • That was a tremendous moment of discovery.

 

“You have been created with a will that is stronger then your emotions.”

  • I tripped and messed up over and over but I was getting stronger and started having more success.
  • I realized that a lot of my thoughts came out of the disuse and the imbalance of my own metal condition rather than from scripture.
  • When agoraphobics come to me and say, “What do I do?” I say, “It’s not going to sound like the good news—but trust me, it is. It will be the hardest work you’ve ever done, but what you will get from it will be your greatest reward. You’ll find your sanity and discover your dignity.”

 

Patsy’s new book, Twirl, just came out.

  • When I was a little girl, my daddy used to twirl me around and around, and I would be full of wonder. I would get up, run to him and say, “Do it again, Daddy. Twirl me.”
  • What I find in life is we can loose track of ourselves in the business. We forget how we are in our attempt to be all things to all people.
  • What I hope to do with Twirl is to give ideas to people of how to self-nurture and take responsibility for themselves. The better condition you’re in, the more value you will have to offer another person. When you’re running on an empty tank, you’re thinking thin thoughts; but when you’re storing up good stuff, you can’t wait to give to another life.

On this week’s episode, we have Crystal Paine, “THE Money Saving Mom,” in our studio to answer a few questions about how her business has grown into what it is today.

 

How did this all get started?

  • My husband and I committed to stay out of debt while he went to law school.
  • We were literally living on beans and rice, but we started finding ways to stretch our dollars because we had to.
  • I was a new mom and started blogging about frugal topics, and there was a lot of interest from outside people.

 

How did it all evolve into what it is today?

  • I had already established myself as an expert with frugal living.
  • Within 3 months we had 16 thousand views on the blog, and within a year we were making a full time income off blog.
  • Today we have about 1.5 million unique visitors to the site per month.

 

How did the book, Say Goodbye to Survival Modecome about?

  • The book was a result of two things…
  • People telling me they were just trying to survive and figure out how to get their life in order
  • My own personal journey of hitting rock bottom and the steps I took to climb out of that pit.

 

What are some of the things you’ve had to overcome?

  • Humbling myself and bringing on help in my business and at home.
  • Learning how to respond with grace to criticism.

 

“My long-term vision is to impact as many lives and help as many people to get their finances and life in order so they can live their life on purpose and influence their communities and ultimately the world.”

On this week’s episode, I answer a listener question on finding role models when none are present in your life.

 

If you’re having a hard time finding role models, then you’re already on the right track because you’ve identified the need to seek out others.

 

How do you find somebody to be mentored by?

  • Get biographies and read about people.
  • You will learn from their great decisions and mistakes.
  • Compare and contrast what you’re reading with what you’re seeing around you.

 

I urge you to take notes on people.

  • Observe the people you see in your community or even when you travel.
  • Take note of how others treat people and the reactions they get back.
  • Take note of body language and actions. There is so much you can learn from observing all kinds of people.

On this week’s episode, I answer a listener question about the characteristics of a successful coach.

 

I speak and write but I also have a couple of clients, including football teams. My criteria for taking on a client:

  • I’ve got to like them.
  • I have to be convinced that their belief level is at a point where they can accomplish great things.
  • Their ability to process information and shift on the fly is also important.

 

People can only achieve to the level that they really believe.

 

To me, the characteristics of a successful coach are:

  • They have a high level of belief in what they do and what they can accomplish.
  • No matter their age or past success, they’re always looking to expand and push the boundaries of what they already know.
  • A lot of people think they’re a little crazy. I don’t mean they lose their temper or anything—I mean people look at them and don’t understand why they do what they do.
  • They accept the “Jones’ Secret Principle of Extraordinary Achievement.” If you’re doing what everybody else is doing, you’re probably doing something wrong.

 

Determine the best result that could ever possibly happen, then backup and design methods specific to that result.
