Almost two years ago, I signed up for The Lucky Bitch Money Bootcamp. I was a little skeptical of the whole thing- not being a very ‘woo-woo’ kind of person, but there was a money back guarantee- so I decided it was worth a try. And HOLY COW was it!
Since then I have taken the course several times, and it has totally changed my life.
Because I loved it so much, I wanted to share the top 8 things that I’ve learned about being a Lucky Bitch.
1. Being lucky happens with you, not to you.
If you want lucky things to happen to you, you have to put yourself in a position where good things can happen to you.
For example, I recently really wanted to go see a show that was sold out. The day of the show, there were a few tickets that were going to be raffled off in a lottery. Since I wanted to see the show, and am obviously a Lucky Bitch, I drove downtown and put my name in.
Not only did I win the lottery, but I also got access to the VIP room (which included hors d’oeuvres , and a private bathroom with no line during intermission!). If I hadn’t taken the time to drive downtown, I never would have won. The Universe has to know that you are serious about wanting what you want.
Show up, and luck will happen.
2. Being generous to others, helps you be lucky.
By going out of your way to help other people, you bring good things your way. Sometimes, this happens directly- you help your friend’s kid get an internship at a company, and they give you football tickets. Other times, you may not see a direct reward from being helpful, but the Universe is always watching.
Side Note – Trying to ‘beat the system’ or being dishonest in some way IS NOT helping your cause. I cannot stand when people are willing to take from others to get what they want.
This kind of behaviour is the opposite of abundant. By taking someone else’s abundance – you are breaking the circle of giving that helps make us all lucky.
Be generous with others. It will increase your abundance.
3. Sometimes getting upgraded costs a little bit more, but sometimes it’s worth it!

4. If you aren’t happy say so, but do it respectfully
If you are in a situation where you are unhappy, it benefits you to say something. Whether it is cold food in a restaurant, a dirty hotel room, or an argument with your spouse- you can gain a lot by bringing the issue to someone’s attention.
BUT, don’t be a jerk.
The nicer you can be to the waiter, the customer service representative, or your sweetheart, the more willing they will be to help you out.
In fact, people will give you more than they need to if you are nice.
5. Lucky Bitches LOVE Other Lucky Bitches
Sometimes you win, sometimes you don’t, but either way having someone who gets what you are going through rocks. Surrounding yourself with like-minded people helps you stretch and grow, and helps pick you back up when you fall down. In my opinion, the best part of The Bootcamp is the Facebook community.
I am regularly on the Private Facebook page posting my successes, and congratulating my fellow Lucky Bitches on theirs!
Be grateful for every penny, that’s how the Universe knows to give you dollars.
7. Sometimes fear happens- it’s totally okay to be terrified, worried, or afraid
It’s normal, it’s natural, and it’s nothing to feel bad about (feeling bad about feeling bad sucks!). When stuff gets scary or overwhelming, take a deep breath and tap it out.
8. Have a plan to bring more abundance in
One of the bonuses in the Lucky Bitch Money Bootcamp is the ‘Do it Quick, Lucky Bitch ’ program that shows you step by step how to manifest anything in 10 days. Weather you use her system, or create your own, planning for what you want to enter your life is absolutely crucial!
