EXCERPT:
The superpower that will give you the million-dollar idea lies within your VPAK. What is a VPAK, you ask? Please do not judge the name! My husband was joking one night, and it stuck. I’ve taught this strategy over and over again, and it works like a charm, so here we are. The VPAK is your hidden superpower of specialized talents and knowledge that is unique to you, and it’s broken down into 4 components that make you so incredibly valuable as an independent income creator.

You may already have an idea of what your strengths are, and that’s great. If not, this exercise will help you validate and clearly understand what your VPAK is and then develop it into a million-dollar business. VPAK stands for Values, Passion, Abilities and Knowledge. The best way to get clarity around this is to dive right into an exercise, so let’s do that right now.

VALUES

Why are values so important? Why are we starting here? Because values determine the decisions we make. But it’s not always so straightforward, simply because you were never taught how to find your values and how to design a life aligned with them. The key to living a good life is to make your lifestyle align with your highest values. Since we often disregard our values and instead choose a cookie-cutter life, we are all very susceptible to being unhappy.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Maria Alcantara is the founder of Millennial Money Queens, a leading financial empowerment movement for millennial women worldwide.

She is a chartered investment manager and money coach with over ten years of financial insights experience working with high-net-worth individuals to manage and grow their wealth. After a decade devoted to mastering money, she realized the gap existing between young women and financial education.

Deeply touched by the current state of millennial women’s finances, where many have fallen into debt, are unable to create inspiring opportunities for themselves and their communities, and are suffering financially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, Maria created Millennial Money Queens to create a much needed shift. After working with millennial clients and friends, she expanded her method to impact a whole generation, our younger sisters and our descendants. She specializes in using behavioural economics and finance to help women achieve financial literacy, freedom and independence. The results are life-changing, with the right financial and psychological preparation, young women are finally able to create purpose, independence and the confidence to live fulfilled lives.

Born and raised in Brazil, Maria witnessed the polarity of money. She vowed at a young age to make a difference in the world. During her childhood, her family moved to Canada where she studied economics, psychology and finance. She started out with big dreams like saving the rainforests of the world and creating animal-assisted therapy programs. The defining moment happened when she was not able to get funding to make those projects come to life. Feeling discouraged and powerless was a huge catalyst. Sometimes in our lives, our temporary defeats hold our most precious gems, Maria decided to master money so that she could personally fund all the projects that were important to her and reflected her values of sustainability, health, welfare and abundance for all.

Thus she embarked on a journey to understand the financial world. She worked in banking, brokerages and wealth management, carefully observing how people handled money differently and the effect it had on their overall life satisfaction. While money can't buy happiness, the lack of can certainly create chaos in one’s life. She found this to be true most clearly with millennial women. With promising futures and careers ahead, the women she spoke with, read about and worked with all shared tremendous baggage of feeling insecure when it came to money. While many millennial women are incredibly well educated, many are uncomfortable discussing money, including negotiating their hard-earned salary and requesting equal pay. Maria dove deeply into the history of women and money and found that outdated societal beliefs widely held by both men and women still influence our behaviour today. In order to create lasting change, millennial women need to be the rising tide. It is our time to rise to our potential and pave the way for the younger generations. Financial literacy including both the psychological and external world perspectives of money are key to empowering women worldwide. That is Maria’s mission in creating the Millennial Money Queen movement.
