Money Mondays: 52 Week Challenge Week 2

Let’s talk about saving money and the 52 Week Challenge.  Now I will be honest I tried to do this last year and it was epic fail, but I am prepared this year to make it to the end of the year doing this challenge.  If you are new to this challenge and don’t know what its about, let me fill you in.  Each week you will save a specified amount of money based upon the current week.  So week 1 you saved $1, week 2 you saved $2 (total $3.00 saved so far), week 3 you will save $3 etc.  The ultimate goal is to save $1,378 during the year.

To help you keep track of this challenge, be sure to print the chart below.  So far its been easy, I feel off about week 20 last year so my goal is not only to make it past week 20 but make it all the way to the end.  I will be checking back in on Monday to show off my savings and check out where you are at!

Money Mondays: The Power of $5.00

Money Mondays: The Power of $5.00

How do you spend $5? Let me rephrase…what are some items that you purchase weekly that cost approximately $5? For me it was a Carmel Macchiatto from Starbucks. I would religiously treat myself to such a treat without a care in the world. It was only five bucks and I never missed the money. Well I never missed it until I had a conversation with my insurance agent who shared with me how he paid for his sons college tuition with just $5 a week. I was amazed. All of a sudden those Carmel Macchiattos weren’t so tasty. If I had known just how powerful my hard earned $5 was I would’ve found a better use for it than a calorie packed coffee from Starbucks. He explained to me that certain life insurance policies don’t just benefit your family when you die. He went on to explain and show me how for a minimal amount over a period of time it can accumulate to I nice nest egg and then can be used for a number of things.

I’m not an insurance agent so I can’t go into much detail about the product however I will say this, contact a very knowledgeable life insurance agent of your choice and they should be able to show you the power of $5. If you don’t have one contact me and I’ll put you in touch with mine. I must say that knowledge is power. So many amongst us have accumulated wealth with very little means by being knowledgeable about how to invest what they have and through patience. The road to financial freedom isn’t always an easy one however stay on the road with your destination in front of you and through determination and perseverance you’ll get there.

Money Mondays: Do you screen your calls?

Money Mondays: Do you screen your calls?

Have you formed the habit of not answering your phone to unknown phone numbers because you assume it’s a bill collector? If your answer is yes then then the following exercise needs to be implemented asap!

From this point moving forward take 20% of your earnings and put it into what I call a debtor’s account. Then I want you to make a list of all the companies or people your in debt to and divide that 20% amongst them. Even if they each get $10 out of every paycheck in time you will minimize that debt. By doing this you change your consciousness from that of lack to that of abundance.

You take control of not only your money and how it’s disbursed, but you know longer live in a state of fear you are now in a state of anticipation. You have the desire to get out of the mental prison of debt and the universe responds by opening up avenues to assist you. You will start to receive money from places you least expected it. When I began this practice I actually started receiving checks in the mail from my own bank. Somehow years prior I had been over charged in fees that I paid. To be honest I don’t recall what they were referring to but I gladly accepted the check! People that were in debt to me started reaching out to settle. To this day I answer my phone without fear and when it’s some debt from my past that I’ve forgotten about…I speak to the representative, get the info and take it out of my debtors account.

Now, I know some of you may say to yourself this is impossible, but no worries trust me it’s not. When you put your mind to something anything is possible. So take control of your life by taking control of your money and how it’s disbursed. On another note start answering the phone it may be the call that could change your life for the better!

Money Mondays: The First Lesson in Building YOUR #Wealth

Money Mondays:  The First Lesson in Building YOUR #Wealth

Most of us feel that unless we win the lottery or some abnormal stroke of luck we will never become millionaires. That’s the furthest from the truth. We’ve been taught that having an abundance of money is somehow sinful so we carry guilt with desiring it. So we have developed abusive habits that continue to cause it to leave us. Sure some of us have managed to save a nice amount only to deplete it as soon as a perceived emergency comes and we are back at square one.
