8 Ways To Have a Positive Money Mindset

When it comes to basic money management most of us know what we are ‘supposed’ to do, you know the basics; spend less than you earn – save for an emergency – and invest for your future.

 

However, establishing ‘good’ habits around money is easier said than done, for a whole lot of reasons!

 

Managing your money and other important things in your life (like an exercise or eating healthy program) takes discipline. And guess what, discipline isn’t a natural state for everyday or everyone. Oh, and let’s add the guilt and shame that you carry […]

Women and Money…You Got This!

how-do-you-do-image-176x400Are you happy with the way you think about money? Are you in charge of your financial destiny? Do you have fun managing your money and setting goals?

 

Well if you said ‘No’ to any of the above, you may be hanging on to some money beliefs, habits or attitudes that are stopping you from having fun! Money is an emotionally volatile issue for most women. It’s probably the most complicated relationship we have – and the one that most controls our lives … if we let it!

 

Many of us hate organizing our financial […]

Top 3 Limiting Money Beliefs & How to Ditch em!

When it comes to attracting either more money or having more success, I’ve found what is really stopping us from living our dreams is limiting beliefs. Unknowingly (in most cases) we allow our fears and doubts to sabotage our success. And one thing I know for sure is that our beliefs are blueprints for our reality.

In simple terms… “Your attitude towards money is enthusiastically creating your financial reality.”   tweet-this-button

This mindset includes all your beliefs, values and experiences you’ve had so far… the […]

Cover Your A$$!

Summer is here! With that brings lots of fun outdoor activities; biking, water skiing, tubing, hiking and camping to name a few. Unfortunately, accidents can happen too. (I’ve seen some wicked tubing accidents and water skiing wipe-outs!)

Some accidents or sickness may only result in a few days off work… but others could result in weeks. A more serious incident may leave you unable to work for months or even years, causing you to have severe financial hardship.

While you are disabled you probably will have additional medical expenses; hospital care, home care, physiotherapy or chiropractic/massage services; all this coming at a […]

Take the money and run

Woman with calculator doing taxesAahhh taxes…love them or hate them, they are inevitable. If you have to pay more tax this year, that may mean that you made more money…which is always a good thing! I have found that when you are organized and have a plan, there really should be no stress at this time of year…yet there is! I highly recommend (especially if you are a business!) that you have a bookkeeper and an accountant to help you plan so there are no surprises.

Now if you are getting a […]

Do you even need an RRSP?

Retirement Nest Egg photoThe deadline for RRSP contributions is fast approaching – March 1st! (In Canada) A question that I always get asked is; “Is the RRSP still the best way for me to fund my future, or should I be maximizing my contribution to a tax-free savings account first, and only then use my additional cash to contribute to an RRSP?”

Well, that depends on a whole lot of things; what do you need, what do you want and how do you want to get there?

RRSP’s can save you money today […]

How are you talking to your kids about money?

I don’t know about you but sometimes we don’t stop to think about the exact meaning of what we are saying. Hey we are busy people and we don’t have time to scrutinize everything that comes out of our mouth. Sometimes we should but it would be a little crazy to do it for every sentence we spoke!

But there are times when we really do need to stop and focus on what words we are using and the meaning that goes with them.

One of these times is when we say that we “can’t afford” something. “Can’t afford” seems to say […]

Do You Have Spending Plan for the Holidays?

I just returned from 2 fantastic weeks in Ixtapa Mexico. It was my first time to Ixtapa and I’ll be back.

My new episode of my Money Grit Show reminded me of a story I shared 3 years ago after I returned from Huatulco, Mexico.

“If you have been in Mexico then you know the word ‘barter’. The locals love it and they have mastered the art of it. I know many people do not like going to Mexico just because of the fact that they are going to be asked to buy different items by the locals. Whether you are on […]
