Tips for success:

  1. Know your ideal client. Understand where they’re coming from and how they view your company, etc.
  2. Create an irresistible offer. The offer is too good to pass.
  3. Work, give, save, spend, monthly budget.
  4. Situations are never permanent. If something goes wrong, remember, crisis leads to breakthroughs.

Get involved in any way possible. One could babysit, go to social events, try a new activity, play sports, or get a job and work.

Things to do:

  • Have a clean room (bed),
  • Dishes
  • Laundry
  • Gain responsibility (feeding a pet)
  • Taking out the trash
  • Yard work (raking leaves, mowing the lawn)
  • Clean the house/kitchen, vacuum/sweep, clean windows, clean bathrooms.

Remember to have a budget!

“No work, no pay” — Dave Ramsey

Tips:

  • Patience is key. It’s recommended to have 40% of your income going into savings.
  • When it’s gone, it’s gone. Money is finite. Spend it wisely. Never purchase on impulse. If there’s something you want, think about the purchase beforehand. Sleep it through.
  • Spenders vs. Savers. Identify yourself. It’s not bad being a spender and it’s not bad being a saver. It’s just important to know which one you are.
  • Bargaining. Learning how to deal.
  • To help visualize you could have 3 envelopes. One for saving, spending, and give.

Reflection:

  • What are you committed to?
  • What are you prioritizing?

In regards to your job/company/business:

  • What’s great?
  • What’s missing?
  • What’s preventing that? (belief, behavior, emotions?)
