Your weekly Money Challenge begins NOW!
“From birth to age eighteen a girl needs good parents. From eighteen to thirty-five she needs good looks. From thirty-five to fifty-five she needs a good personality. From fifty-five on she needs cash. – Sophie Tucker
Thank goodness I am only 53 and I still have the luxury of my winning personality to fall back on for 2 more years! HA!
Every week I will have a MONEY QUESTION where I want you to consider how you would answer the question. If you feel like you need help, then you know what to do, right? LOOK for help. Ask people around you who are better than you with money. Ask for guidance. ASK QUESTIONS. PERIOD!!
Ok, here goes:
Question: I have a concrete financial goal (an actual number) toward which I am working.
(Source; “Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich. 75 Avoidable Mistakes Women Make with Money”. Lois P. Frankel, PhD.)
In my opinion, the wisest thing you can ever do for yourself is to educate yourself on the topics you do not understand. Instead of waiting for someone else to take care of the financials, dare to ask those you trust for help, guidance and insight.
If you know that you want a certain type of life, you want to create a personal financial freedom for yourself by having _______ dollars in your bank account or in your business account, what do you think it will bring you when you achieve that number?
When you have the number, do you think all of the sudden you will FEEL whole? Or fulfilled? Or satisfied? #moneymindset
I want to challenge you to think deeper about the number you would like to have in your accounts. I want you to think about what you will DO with the money when you have it. It’s important to know that money is just money and it needs a place to go.
It doesn’t have any feelings and it doesn’t care how you use it but YOU need to have a plan for it.
Having a set financial goal of what you are working towards and what you want, need, require, deserve, whatever. It doesn’t matter your reason for wanting it but I want you to be clear on WHEN it comes, how will it serve you?
Or better yet, how will you serve WITH IT?
Respond to me with your number and let’s see how you are going to get there. I have full faith in you.
