It all sounds a bit cultish, doesn’t it? And yet it was so very empowering. If you haven’t heard of Denise Duffield Thomas she is the author of two books – Lucky Bitch, and Get Rich Lucky Bitch. I came across her second book, Get Rich Lucky Bitch, as a freeby on Kindle. A friend had a link to Amazon saying it was free and you couldn’t go wrong with a title like that – my first thought was “well, I’m not going to get poor, am I?”
I bought the book (can you say you bought it when it was a free download?) and immediately devoured it. It’s not that she was saying anything new. I’d heard much of what she was writing about at some point in my life. But I’d never taken any notice previously. Something about the way Denise wrote about abundance, manifesting, and forgiveness got me to stop in my tracks and take notice.
Lucky Bitch Live managed to unearth a couple of deeper blocks for me to work on too. At the Wednesday evening event I was very privileged to be asked to introduce Denise and welcome her to the stage to the sounds of Daft Punk and Get Lucky – that song is still going around my head now. And she entertained us whilst also getting us to acknowledge that we are enough, and we do deserve.
I think the funniest bit of Denise’s presentation was her comparison of how men sell and how women sell.
Man: Hey, I’ve got this thing. Wanna buy it?
Woman: Hey, I’ve got this thing, well I think I’ve got this thing, do you think you might, well it’s not quite ready yet, but I don’t mind if, well maybe not, you see, oh no don’t buy it yet, how about I give you discount, no, no, I’ll let you have it for free because I like you, you want to know about my thing, what thing, oh that thing, I’m not sure it’s good enough … and so on.
The way Denise told us this story was such a good comedy routine, and we all laughed, whilst also cringing inside as we recognised ourselves when selling our ‘thing’!
Recently I was fortunate enough to interview Denise about the things that got her the life of her dreams. It was a very touching and heart-felt interview. I’ve attached it here for you to enjoy too. Let me know what you think in the comments.
