I don’t know about you…but I feel like someone flicked the switch from summer to fall … overnight!
Holy cow we needed the rain, but I had to light the pilot on the fireplace and turn on the furnace!
For me, this is a signal to start planning my annual trip to Mexico!
(My view in a couple of months!)
Now sometimes people say to me; “It must be nice to go away every winter…”
To which I reply… “It is … and you can too – if you plan it!”
To which they reply; “I can’t afford it.”
Here’s some harsh reality… ‘I can’t afford it’ is a choice.
Think of a time you really, really, wanted something and you moved mountains to get it.
I’ll bet there were many obstacles you had to overcome.
Money is no different.
Are money issues affecting your relationship?
Are you finding you are always ‘wanting’ but never getting what you want and you use money as the reason (or excuse)?
Sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Unfortunately, innocent ol’ money is blamed to be the almighty cause of lack and way too many arguments between couples.
In fact, in relationships, finance issues are usually the #1 reason why couples get stressed … (next to #2 – which is annoying habits! 😉 haha). I’ve had my fair share of both, so I know this is true!
The real crappy truth is no matter how bad it gets, you tend to make it even worse. How?
You get jealous of others success, over eat, drink too much, you’re judgmental, bitchy and convince yourself that there is nothing you can do.
You blame your partner, job, friends, or kids because that’s way easier than looking in the mirror and realizing that you are making choices that YOU KNOW are not what you should be doing to make it better.
If you are like me, it’s waaaay easier to fix other people’s problems, but for you – it seems impossible.
So, I’m going to ride my white horse in and save you.
Well… I’m going to give you an action step to take that will start the change and create momentum.
But YOU must draw a line in the sand and decide that it is time you take control of your destiny!
YOU must make a decision and get off your proverbial arse, stop talking about it and start doing it!
If you want to go to Mexico – or wherever – every year – you can.
If you don’t have what you want, I’ll be bold enough to say that you don’t have a plan and you don’t really know where your money goes.
Sure, you know how much is in the bank and you have a general idea of where your money goes….
But I’ll go out on a limb here and bet that you don’t know EXACTLY how much money is spent every month on items such as groceries, dining out, kids, auto expenses…to name a few!
If you are just winging it with your finances… you may have great skills and talent at robbing Peter to pay Paul so that everyone gets paid … BUT… this is so stressful!
Are you ready to end this?
These 3 letters will change your life… K Y N
It’s the very first action step you need to take (and the most important); ‘KNOW YOUR NUMBERS’.
If you’ve been around my community for a while, you’ve heard me mention the importance of knowing your numbers one or hundred times 😉.
I want you to have that vacation, or new car, or new clothes or _____ (fill in your want).
So, I am giving you access to my personal cashflow sheet that I use with every client. We always start right here, looking at where your money is going AND how much is coming in.
Don’t worry … I’ve also included a short video to explain HOW to fill it out.
I don’t want to hear the excuses of “I didn’t know how…” (add whiney voice 😉)
Money doesn’t have to get the best of you, in fact I want you to bring out the BEST OF YOU.
Having control over your money will allow you to make BETTER CHOICES.
It allows you take responsibility for your actions instead of excuses of why you don’t.
Once you know your numbers… then and only then… can you take the next step – ‘Budget’… the 6-letter word that sends people screaming from the room…. “You can’t make me….!”
I would not be able to do all the fantastic trips I have done if I didn’t budget for it.
The good news is that technology has made tracking your cashflow and budgeting a whole lot easier. I’ll mention a couple of good ones in the video, including the one I have used for the last 15 years.
Bottom line, if money stress has hijacked your relationship or your quality of life and you’re coming close to pulling the plug and succumbing to the fact that you are shitty with money, please get this help from me!
If you are really in a bind then talk to me… book a complimentary appointment with me, it’s never too late and never not fixable. ♥
No more excuses… because the truth is; It’s not that you can’t, it’s just that you don’t.
The best time for beginning… is well … now!
Fill out the form below and I’ll send you the link to watch the video and download the cashflow sheet.
(It’s free… my gift to you! ♥)
Your GUARANTEE for SUCCESS is to stop thinking, wishing, hoping and just start DOING and… TAKING ACTION!
You got this! BELIEVE!
See you soon!
