From Welfare to Millionaire and the Tools That Got Him There with Christian Mickelsen


I’m so grateful for all the amazing people I’ve met through my mastermind with Lewis Howes, and today I’m fortunate enough to talk with another fellow “masterminder”, Christian Mickelsen.

I love diving deeper into his story as he tells us more about being on welfare as a child and how that lack of money made him feel then and how it affected his money mindset later on. Christian obviously overcame that lack mindset and it happened when he realized that he’s always been “rich” – just not in the traditional way. He now helps others work through their feelings and fears through his coaching and Abundance Unleased events.

This is one of the most empowering conversations I’ve had to date and I know that his insights will help propel you to the next level of abundance in your life and business.

Question Highlights:
• What’s your favorite quote?

• What’s one of your favorite accomplishments?
• What’s one regret you have?
• Can you tell us a little more about your upbringing?
• When did you start this journey to go from a poverty mindset to a master of abundance?
• What are the invisible forces that are holding people back?
• Is your event based on your book, Abundance Unleashed?
• How can people go to your event? When and where is it?

Christian’s Thoughts…

“If we want more abundance in our lives, we need to get clear on what we want.”

“Being alive is rich.”

“The richest person in the world isn’t the person with the most money, it’s the person with the most gratitude.”

“If you want to be rich now, start appreciating what you have now.”

“Having big goals forces us to become bigger people.”

“Be happy with what you have – and go for more!”
