[TSE 116] How to Remove Money Blocks and be a Lucky Bitch with Denise Duffield-Thomas

Posted on /by Natalie Sisson/ in Podcast / 38 comments

116 - Denise QuoteAlright ladies, I’ve got a question for you. When things go great in your life do your friend and family truly see the hard work you put in or do they think you have horseshoes up your butt and are a lucky bitch?

No offense dudes, but when it comes to financial abundance and hard work, women rarely get credited for deserving it. This stereotype is what instigates poor money mindsets in women and is the foundation for Denise Duffield-Thomas’ business.

Denise is an online business coach and motivational speaker who helps women create more financial abundance and success in their life. Having chugged along in a corporate position she hated, then finally giving it up to follow her dreams and travel, she has created the cheeky brand Lucky Bitch to help others ditch detrimental money mind blocks, use the law of attraction and stop under-earning.

Now, money is one of those topics that I don’t often talk about on my blog because it’s a very personal and somewhat taboo (but it shouldn’t be) and I think it’s important to acknowledge it as a tool to give you financial freedom.

This year I really noticed a difference in my financial situation. I started asking the universe for things and in return, I have had my most successful year in business.

    Hi Natalie, I have been following you for a while and recently discovered Denise also – I love the work that you both do, so was excited to see this podcast in my inbox! Great content, and I found myself relating to so many aspects, having just recently commenced my business journey and facing / overcoming varying blocks, including money.
    I’ve always believed that everything happens for a reason, rather than by chance or ‘luck’. Whilst I’ve always held this belief, it is only recently that I have recognised the power of putting intention behind specific thoughts and actions that can change the course of an outcome – essentially we all have the ability to create our own ‘luck’.
    Thank you both for a great episode 🙂

    Hi Natalie and especially Denise – Girl!!! You really hit a nerve with my business problem. I have several different ventures that I’ve never really gotten off the ground, because of the very things you talk about in this podcast. I will be watching for more from you, for sure!

    What luck means to me: luck is what happens when I gain something I didn’t earn or expect. Last weekend, I went to Reno and pulled $100 out of my checking account, just so I could have fun with it. I sat down at a penny machine and within 2 “pulls” of the slot machine I was up by $167. That’s 167% OVER the $100 I withdrew! I didn’t earn that. It came to me, because I put the money in the machine. THAT was luck!

    That’s the kind of luck I’d love to see in my business. I put in the effort into the machine (my business), and the financial return will be 167% of my best hope. More would be nice too, of course.

    I can’t wait to experience the new attitude – rich, lucky bitch! 🙂

  • Hey guys thanks for the great show and tips. I’m heavily focused on productivity in all aspects of my life. So to me luck means using my time and energy to be more effective and efficient in everything that I do. By doing this you can enable effective progress towards whatever goals you set yourself.

  • Great interview with Denise Duffield-Thomas. Really interesting to hear her coming from a small town and not coming from an entrepreneurial background, and the limiting thoughts that sometimes engenders. I live in a county in England, UK called Suffolk and sometimes we recognise that small town mentality way of thinking – we sometime laughingly refer to it as being Suffolk-cated. Not raising your eyes to seeing the wider opportunities that the world has to offer. And believe me I love this beautiful part of England, but we do need to examine our limiting thoughts and beliefs and that can sometimes start with examining our background and upbringing.

    Love the section of this interview on manifesting, LoA and visualization and interesting to hear your thoughts on how you’ve changed your thinking on that Natalie. I too have been changing my thoughts in this area. We’ve launched a new podcast in the UK called the Changeability Podcast, and it has been doing really well in the UK. No. 1 in New and Noteworthy in 4 categories (Business, Education, Health and Self-Help). As our downloads have been rising, I came to think that we’d never have x number of downloads in a day. So recently I started visualizing a much larger number of downloads in an individual day. We just thought about it, and continued to take daily action towards that aim and within a fortnight we have achieved that. Amazing! I almost felt like I had turned a corner in my way of thinking on this subject.

    Anyway, that’s about it from me. In response to your question ‘What does luck mean to me’, I really do believe you work your luck. It’s about seeing where you want to be and then taking consistent, daily action towards achieving those goals. To that aim, we’re following in your footsteps in April of next year – we’re off to Tropical Think Tank with Chris Ducker and a whole bunch of cool entrepreneurs so that’s us raising our eyes to see the wider opportunities the world has to offer! Shame you won’t be there but thanks for all you are doing to help us realise our own wings in the world and thanks Denise for your thoughts on money and the limiting thoughts it can engender in us.

  • Amanda Workman

    This was an incredible interview! Thank you both so much for coming on and being honest. The “money block” thing is a huge one for me and I am learning to address that issue straight on…
    Right now I am clearing clutter out of my life. Letting go of things that are trapping the energy. And keeping my mind in abundance mentality, while facing past “lies” that I believed about money. It is amazing to see the difference.

    What does “lucky” mean to me? Lucky = Blessed and rewarded for hard work done! 🙂

    I think luck is hard work. You work hard to put yourself in the right space at the right time, where you’re ready to take advantage of opportunities. It never happens without you putting in some hard yards behind the scenes.

    Great podcast! What does luckymean to me? Well I think you make your own luck by being active and passionate in your business, committed to the output and letting go when you need to. It’s really putting yourself out there.

  • absolutely awesome podcast – big thanks to you both. could completely relate to so many of the blocks you guys talked about and the claim that people make that your successes are ‘luck’ rather than a manifestation. Also, as a ‘southern hempisherien’, it is really great hearing from aussie/kiwi success stories and mindsets. and i like the tip of labelling your email signature!

    and what is luck? i actually think, in many cases, it is simply an outsiders point of view. people often label you as ‘lucky’ when something great manifests in your life, but they have not seen the hard work (be it physically or emotionally) and the uptake of opportunities behind it. when you and the universe align it could be called luck, or it could be called a deserved outcome!

  • Excellent content on this week’s podcast! Denise – I enjoyed hearing your story and it’s great to hear it in a way that makes me feel success isn’t that far off! What does “luck” mean to mean? When everything I want to achieve easily falls into place, I tend to feel lucky, even if I did put work behind it!

    Truly enjoyed this podcast. Thank you! This has been one of those weeks,
    checking in with myself about how my business is not growing and takes
    so much of my energy, and asking myself if it is worth it. Maybe I
    should just let it go, but it brings so much joy sometimes as well. I’ve
    spent this year in self exploration and pushing boundaries, a lot of
    listening to Deepok Chopra and other spiritual teachers to figure out
    how to manifest the life I desire and joining Toastmasters to face one
    of my biggest fears. It’s changed my whole outlook on my definition of
    luck. Luck is synchronicity and destiny coming together. Asking for what
    you want and letting the universe do its work to provide you with what
    is needed. Low and behold, an email appears in my inbox this morning
    from a friend, and it’s a link to this podcast. How lucky for me! The
    right timing and the perfect message from the universe at this moment. I
    took the opportunity presented to me in the form of a link to a podcast
    and received.

  • Great question (what does luck mean to me) – I think luck is when things turn out BETTER than what I can plan for. Having a manager at work who recognizes my potential and promotes me to doing work that I love and I’m great at. Having a satisfied customer tell a friend, who turns out to be another potential customer. Sitting down next to a guy I’ve never seen before at a party, and who I end up marrying (almost thirty years ago) – what if I hadn’t gone to that party?

    In my experience, luck has always been found at the intersection of preparation and allowing. Without both of these, I would easily miss out on all the great opportunities that come my way.

    Great podcast. I am changing my relationship with money. Out with the old conditioning. Thanks.

  • Awesome episode ladies! It really rings true with my mantra, which is “Change your thoughts, and you change your destiny”. And as always, very inspiring Natalie.

    In my opinion luck seems to show up when you know what you want. If you’re aware of what it is in life that you’re looking for, then I think consciously or subconsciously you will attract it. Luck can sometimes by found by winning a trip (which has happened to me too Denise!), but I would not have won if I hadn’t of bought a ticket (and I always buy a ticket if there’s a trip involved 🙂

    For me, luck is about heading the call – that is, stepping into my divine potential and what I know I am here for with complete faith and surrender. It is staying out of doubt and sabotage and being willing to be great.

    Thank you for this amazing episode! I love you both! This litterally came at a much needed time of feeling like a failure, not trusting that my business is my divine call and feeling really stuck.  Litterally. After a failed workshop launch and the recording of my new album falling through (to “next steps” for me in my career succes plan), I have moved back in with my parents, am completely broke, and I know I really need work through my money and manifesting stories!  And I know, when in am trusting my luck, it shows up! Every time.  Thank you for this reminder!

     I am ready to be a rich and famous musician and coach!

  • Awesome episode, ladies! I needed to hear that… Luck is identifying the right opportunity that would open the door to your calling. I’ve always loved this quote, “Fate only takes you so far that once you’re there, it’s up to you to make it happen.” I think luck operates the same way. 🙂

    Wow, this episode really spoke to me. I really love the way you mix it up, Natalie. Denise’s story about her job history sounded so similar to the way I change jobs every few years and never fully commit. For me, luck means being ready to see an opportunity and take it when it comes around. It means not being afraid to say yes to something that you really want.
