11 Sep [VLOG 150] INVESTING MEANS MORE THAN MONEY
For years on ‘this journey’, I was broke. And not just broke but DIRT BROKE! I was paying off £100k in debt and it was hard.
For entertainment, me and Alice would go to town and walk around the shops imagining all the things we would buy once I’d paid off the debt. I’d keep a neatly folded £20 note in my pocket (which I wouldn’t dare spend) and I’d look at things in turn and say “Yup, I can afford that…I can afford that too”.
Generating those feelings of wealth and abundance was an important part of manifesting my new life.
We’d then go a charity shop in Manchester and pick a 50p DVD each to watch over the weekend. Harry Potter, Downton Abby, a detective show. And we’d go home, eat dinner and snuggle up with a new show.
It sounds crazy. This was only 24 – 36 months ago!!
But even though things were tight and we couldn’t invest financially in our dreams, we invested in other ways. We were investing our time, our energy, our feelings, our mornings and our evenings.
We joined free webinars, we learnt new skills from YouTube videos, we read books and all the while behind the scenes we were developing new skills. Alice was learning to host parties and I was learning to make videos.
I had a major passion for video. Capturing the best shot, telling the story and mixing it up with the right cut and music became an obsession of mine that kept me focused. I might have been broke, but I could still vlog!
Whilst I only had an iPhone and pretty basic stand at the time, I’m still so grateful I captured the journey. It’s not just the vlogs I love, it’s the story they’ve told over time and the people who I’ve met because of the journey that means the world to me.
And on that note, here’s today’s vlog. A 5am trip to the beach followed by coffee and cake at Filmore and Union. Plus an exciting new purchase for myself hehe.
Have a fab day everyone! I hope this vlogs keeps you motivated and inspires you to invest in yourself this week. It pays dividends in the future.

ABOUT ME **
My name’s Lisa and I’m a Transformational Coach, Speaker and Vlogger living in Tynemouth, Newcastle (North East). Having built two traditional six-figure businesses by the time I was 30, I knew that ‘success’ wasn’t what I wanted. What I wanted was to be happy. Very happy. And so I set about on a mission to uncover my purpose, get over depression and build my dream life. Now I show others how to do the same.
Also obsessed with dogs, vegan baking and marketing.
