I haven’t talked much about finances, which is weird because we talk about everything else.
So, let’s talk about it!
“You have to pay attention to money. It’s like a lover and loves attention!”
To be honest I work really, really hard to create the life I love, but this hasn’t always been the case.
When I first started my business I overspent on education and learning. I literally spent nearly $100k ‘trying to get’ this entrepreneur thing!
Truth is … I’m so glad I invested in learning — I only wish I would have taken action sooner.
I was buying useless sh*t to avoid the greater life I SO desired and AVOIDED having! Yes — I was avoiding a greater life!
IT TOOK A LOT OF ups & downs to really learn how to play and create with money. But I really started to pay attention to money after my husband, Joe, trapped me against the bathroom door and made me make a choice to pay attention to money and create more wealth!
I have this my little feng shui money toad that Joe gave me at the end of 2008 that has been my little representation of the choice.
2017 has really become about recognizing the importance of what really matters in life, in business and about money.
Recognizing and acknowledging sounds simple, but how often do you do it? Especially when money isn’t going great.
These days I sit down each month and go through every little charge. I add a touch of gratitude for everything I chose to purchase, down to the $4 latte.
Here’s Some Possibilities to Create More Wealth
1. Set 10% of your income aside and place it in an account that uses it to create more. (i.e. dividends or interest)
+ AND do this every month on a certain date. I like to make this a calendar item and ask it to expand.
2. Invest in yourself.
+ IMPORTANT this doesn’t mean you can’t buy clothes that would contribute to you. This means invest in bettering yourself.
3. Live below your means.
+ FOR EXAMPLE if you have a business take some of that money & put it into building your business. If you don’t have a business, invest in yourself to create a better life.
Clearing Those *Stupid* Hang Ups Around Money
1. Sometimes we feel that we HAVE TO buy things to prove status or make ourselves feel better — I get it, I’ve been there.
+ WHAT IF you only CHOSE purchases and invested in things that would create more for you? Will you eliminate anything that doesn’t?
Wouldn’t you rather have financial security & a thriving business than a $650 pair of shoes that hurt your feet? Of course, there are times when those purchases will contribute to creating more — you’ll know when this is true.
2. Sometimes we feel we CAN’T do what we desire because of money available.
+ WHAT IF having FUN helped you create a better life and make more money? Can you eliminate what doesn’t?
