Show Me The Money!

If you want to get the inside scoop on how this award-winning mentor, coach, Internet Marketer and New York Times Best-Selling author creates her dream life, then you are in for one heck of a ride!

I was thrilled when this amazing woman agreed to an interview, and so I welcome you to today’s conversation with Peggy McColl, where she teaches us how she got started on her path to wealth and fulfillment, and she details her Number One Tool on creating her dream life (that we can start using today!)

Enjoy this edition of Sarah Talks Food…For The Soul.

The Secret

After I got sober, I graduated business school in 2005 and proceeded to pursue a degree in Management. Although I loved what I was learning, something was missing. A lot was missing, I suppose.  I truly felt like I had no idea what I was going to do with my life upon graduation or how I was going to use my life to serve others. I felt unfulfilled in my personal relationships. I was working through my reasons for my alcoholism and I was grappling with my sobriety.  I was lost and I felt that I had no purpose.

In 2007, I read a book and watched a film that would change the trajectory of my life. I first heard about it from Oprah. She had had the author on the show, and I was fascinated by what I was hearing. I went out and bought the book and DVD that same day. I watched that DVD over a dozen times. I kept the book beside my bed.

That DVD and book was The Secret.

Just Say Yes!

In 2009, I quit my marketing job. That decision had a lot to do with what I was learning about myself and what I wanted to create in my life. Less than a week after I’d handed in my resignation, I attended an event called “Just Say Yes” over my 37th birthday weekend. My Dad gifted it to me as my birthday gift. He even suggested that I stay at the Brookstreet hotel where the event was taking place and treated me to that as well. It was a luxurious, wonderful weekend, and that experience had a profound impact on me.

The event was designed to help people get outside of their comfort zones and to consider taking leaps of faith, big and small. The organizers invited several female leaders to speak, and one of those leaders was Peggy McColl.

The idea for Just Say Yes came to the three organizers when they went on the Bob Proctor cruise, where he had set up speakers and trainings on how to build wealth, forge relationships and business ventures and create a life of your dreams. The three women wondered what would happen if they would “just say yes” to the many opportunities on the ship. I loved that idea and I loved the event.

Coincidentally, I had told my Dad about that exact cruise in 2007, and he wanted to take the whole family on it. We began the process of booking it, but it just never materialized. It wasn’t meant to be.

So, in the opening comments when I heard that the organizers went on that cruise and developed the idea for this event, I knew I was in the right place. 🙂

My Introduction To Peggy

I had not heard of Peggy McColl before this event. She was yet to be on my radar. But I had secured my seat at the front of the room, and as I watched this lovely and confident woman take the stage, the energy in the room shifted. It was palpable.

She was interviewed by one of the organizers, answering every question with intense honesty and profound insight. I hung on her every word. I loved her energy and her confidence. I felt my face flush when she clearly and loudly proclaimed “I love money! I love my fancy cars and I love my big houses and I don’t have a problem saying it!”


I wanted to be able to say that! And truly mean it. My reaction to her words made me realize that although I had come a long way regarding my feelings of worthiness and my beliefs about money (I’ll share more about that in my book), I still had a long way to go.

I wanted to live my life on purpose.

I wanted to truly believe that I deserved more and could achieve more if I put my mind to it.

The final exercise of the weekend had us writing a letter to ourselves 3 months into the future. We were to write all the things we were doing in our lives, our relationships, our financial situation, anything we wanted. It just had to be written as if it was the truth of our lives.

Manifesting MY Destiny

I wrote about my passion for helping people become healthier and fitter.

I wrote about loving seeing people make positive changes to their health and well-being through the work I was doing.

I wrote about helping recovering alcoholics see that they could live their best lives as sober, happy, healthy people.

I wrote about loving the way it felt to inspire people to love their lives and to love themselves.

I wrote about how it felt to make money working for a company that shared my values.

I loved this exercise! I wrote it with the energy and the belief that I could truly have these things if I put my energy and focus on them.

When I received that letter in the mail three months later, I got goosebumps.

In the three-month period after leaving that event, I had helped to open up a brand new health studio with my new partner, Roger (who I also manifested using Napoleon Hill’s method of writing my deepest desire on a gold card, keeping it in my pocket, and reading it several times a day–which I talk about at the end of the interview) and I was helping people to become healthier, happier, fitter people every single day. It was amazing to see that I had been able to manifest all of this into my life, and I wondered what else I could achieve.

I took a leap of faith, and after the health studio closed, Roger and I embarked on our own journey in business. It hasn’t been without its challenges, but we are making strides every day.

We Are Worthy...Because We Were Born.

I am a work-in-progress, and continue to have worthiness issues as well as limiting beliefs about money. I’m getting there, step-by-step. Peggy reminds me that money is simply a “transfer of energy” and that we are all worthy. Period.

In Peggy’s New York Times best-selling book Your Destiny Switch, she talks about how her life changed at the age of 19 when she sat in the front row of a talk Bob Proctor was giving at the marketing firm she was working for; in a job she didn’t love. I smiled when I read the similarity in our stories.

At the age of 19, Peggy McColl realized that if she wanted to change her life, she had to change her thoughts, her beliefs and her actions. She learned that it was all within her control. She voraciously studied Bob’s work and she has continued to practice the law of attraction on a daily, hourly, minute-by-minute basis. In doing so, Peggy has been able to create the life of her dreams, and she has made it her life’s work to help others do the same.

Peggy is a New York Times Best-Selling author, a mentor, a coach, and an Internet Marketing Expert. She is an inspiration to me and to anyone who has had the benefit of working with her or hearing her speak.

Please connect with her if you haven’t already. Find her at and on Facebook and Twitter. You’ll be glad you did.

Because I want you to love your life one bite at a time.

Thank you, Peggy, for being a shining light in my life. I am deeply grateful for the gifts you share with me and with this world. xo
