As Nathaniel Emmons declared, habit is either the best of servants

or the worst of masters.

Change you life today!

To fully experience the teachings of The Woman's Guide to Money and The Prosperity Factor, completing and practicing the exercises included within the books is paramount; they will help you create new and prosperous habits and beliefs. These in turn will create powerful actions which, when consistently taken, will transform your life in miraculous ways. If you’re like the person I used to be and you’ve skipped over the exercises thinking that it’s enough to just experience them mentally, I can assure you that you’ll miss the benefits and the entire purpose of this program. By starting a support group with a friend or a group, you’ll not only instill the material deeper within your subconscious by teaching it, but you’ll also create accountability by completing the exercises with your peers.

Starting your group

Send an email with a link to this page to your friends, family and co-workers.  Or, if you have a limited support group in your city, create your own.  Advertise in your local newspaper, library, church, and bookstore.

Make sure you are explicit about the fact that it is a club of people that follow the guidelines here or those that you have created.

If you live in a big community, you might start a group by advertising on our website for free. Email us the following information: your club's name with a request for how many members, a contact name, email and phone number. We will then create a web page and link it to the page of your province.

Look for a diverse group of people

Find a good range of members with a strong vision for a more prosperous life. Diversify your group; if all your members have similar attitudes and viewpoints, your discussions will be short and lackluster.

Hold your first meeting to discuss the rules or standards your club will follow. Your first meeting agenda should cover these questions which everyone needs to assist in answering:

  • Why do I want to join Prosperity Group and what do I expect to get out of it?
  • When should we meet?
  • Where should we meet? (i.e. bookstores, each others homes, etc.)
  • What about confidentiality? As your Prosperity Group can bring old beliefs and issues about money to the surface, the strictest of confidence must be obtained by the group for maximum freedom to share without judgment.
  • What about summer holidays and Christmas?
  • Can the schedule be altered? How? And for what reasons?
  • What are the responsibilities of each member? If I don't finish the readings or the exercises, can I still attend the meetings?
  • Who will host the sessions? What does hosting include? Limits to refreshments?
  • Who will lead the groups discussions? The person who formed the group or alternate between members? Should the host and the leader be the same?  Do we want to designate a permanent leader?
  • How long does each person have to share experiences, etc. - if someone is too verbose or talks out of order, how should it be handled? Who should handle it?
  • What about smoking, pets, tardiness, and telephone calls during discussions?
  • What if a person wants to be a guest or become a member once the group has started? (Discuss with members ahead of time.)
  • Who will order the books/study material, keep the host/leader rotation, and maintain records of what was read and when?
  • Anything missed?

Do's and Don'ts

Prosperity Group members should be cautious about the number of people admitted into the group. Too large of a group can make some individuals refrain from offering their opinions. Or a couple of individuals may dominate the discussion, intimidating other group members.

The group leader should make sure everyone participates in the discussions. If a question is asked, everyone should contribute in the round robin. If you see someone being left out, prompt her for her opinion.

Keep notes while reading...and not just when you are the leader. It helps to deepen discussion if specific passages can be read.

Even if you disagree with a concept, conversation or someone's input, be open and allow others to express their opinion without judgment. Your disagreement will enliven discussion. Build your reasons and enjoy that intense interaction with other club members. After the discussions, you may discover insights not previously thought of before.
