The Mommy Millionaire Mentality starts with your kids
This week’s guest is someone I have been wanting to interview since before I even had a podcast. I have known this special human for almost seven years now, and it has been incredible to watch her beautiful evolution within her family and business, Mommy Millionaire. Cayla Craft talks about the hard stuff, about the struggles of making money and raising a family and shares her own journey of moving away from safety and into her true calling to help mommies make money.
Listen to this episode to hear how to financially set goals and reach them, how to build a family and business that is inclusive, and how to overcome and change limiting beliefs from “why me?” to “Why not me?”
Tapping into Little Cayla
We start this episode by diving into little Cayla’s childhood, the beliefs that were instilled at a young age, and the moment that taught her it was time to grow up at the age of 5. She talks about her parents’ divorce, her family’s struggle with money, and the story of a broken bone that made her commit to herself that she was going to grow up and have money.
Keeping her family together
We talk about Cayla’s career as an RN in the ER, how she found network marketing and the decision to finally let go of the safety of her career and pursue the promise she made to herself all those years ago—to step into her true calling, help women, and make money for her family. Cayla shares the struggles she faced keeping her family together, the decision to do the work on herself, the reasoning behind it, and it encouraged her husband to do the same.
Get the millionaire mentality
She shares the two most important things she and her husband do to uphold the other and build an inclusive family, how to instill the millionaire mentality in your children at a young age, and how to show up for yourself, your kids, your partner, and make the money you deserve.
Cayla Craft is a mom of 3 and founder of Mommy Millionaire. She is on a mission to empower 1 million women to make 1 million dollars or more a year. She has been featured on CBS, ABC, The List and the Hallmark Channel sharing tips for women to thrive in business.
