Defining “profit”

By Beth Crittenden | September 5, 2017

With what do you associate the word “profit“? My previous unchecked assumptions about the word ‘profit’ and what it represents: -the one(s) with the profit “won”, and therefore others “lost” -someone had to have been taken advantage of somehow, for…

By Beth Crittenden / September 17, 2017

How Much Is Enough? A recent conversation with a stranger in passing helped me turn a corner. Working within the money realm professionally, I am not immune to the charms and bedevilments of the green stuff. I make my own unconscious assumptions about how much grander life would be if I *just* had more money. That compulsive, clingy, desperate nature has really been on my back lately. I’m not proud to admit that, and I’m saying it because I find true freedom in revealing the patterns to stop identifying with them. The stranger was in pain. Confused, stymied as to how to proceed in their marriage (or not), and feeling very…

Strangely, I resisted coming here for quite a while. That process has been illuminating…it’s brought up my own ingrained sexism, fears of being seen, and even fear of being overwhelmed by “more success”. There’s also that lurking old chestnut that…
