How do you celebrate?

My work was coming to a new path.  I began to see that my struggle was paying off.  I had tried to post  Facebook ads and was not too successful.  I realized that I need some intervention. I got my Facebook ads approved and was receiving some engagements.  I completed my audiobook and this had been torture.  I realized that my content needed some help.  I was successful in publishing my first audiobook, Be Savvy Live Wealthy, From a setback to a comeback.  This would allow me to publish on iTunes, youtube and social media. This is my first step to creating an evergreen product.

My financial goal is to reach 300k by the year-end.  I published my future advisor for the week and I discovered I was within 44k for the year.  This is only the second month of the year. By stating my goal, I realized that I  was moving beyond a limiting self-defined belief.  I could stretch even more.

I recently left a full-time employment and decided I wanted to work only 20 weeks per year.  This would allow me to work when I wanted, travel when I wanted and still find time to garden, write and be fully present for my family and friends.  I have a contract coming soon that will fulfill my request. By sharing my story, it may inspire others to see they have passions that are dormant and it is time to reclaim your purpose.

To celebrate my year, I made a deposit on my long-deferred trip to South Africa.  So my next venture is to visit Soweto, Johannesburg and enjoy the hospitality of South Africa this year. It is when we make small strides towards our goals, we must decide how we will celebrate.

Happy investing in yourself  today for tomorrow

Do you have tenacity?

Do you feel that you have lost your bearings?. The images of defeat are so real that you are ready to give up. The chatter is so loud and all the conversation is about lack and limitation. This resembles 2008 and all the fears of the past are coming up.
At this time, drop and roll. Remember you survived and thrived. What were the times you still found joy? During these turbulent times reflect on the good and use this as the fodder for moving forward. The strength is not looking at the lack, but to raise your vibration and focus on the good. When we choose to look for the good we fortify our inner immune system and repel sickness and the day does not seem bleak.
The last two weeks for those trading and investing in the stock market, we have seen the market retreat and our account values have declined. When I turned my attention to my plan and remembered the fundamentals and that I had studied for these turbulent times. I was able to select the right course of action and weathered the storm. I had stocks that were primed for earnings and the stocks exploded and made my account green. I shifted my thoughts and observations from lack or what was possible. This approach is what helps me to pay attention to the garden and how the condition can change.

Patience and look for the patterns are the key choices to plant in the garden and to invest with confidence

Hunting money or farming money

Beautiful female business woman consultant providing global reorganization strategy solution ideas concept.

Hunting money is what you earn when you are searching for new sales or new clients. It is the daily hustle. The grind. The money you EARN through hard work. But farming money is different.

Farming money is when you take your hard-earned money and you plant it. You plant it in a 401k. You plant it in a real estate investment. You plant it so that it will grow and build your wealth…

If you had a choice, which would you prefer? Hands up for farming money. We love to see our accounts grow and with little effort. The farming is that we need to plant seeds that we will see results. Will all the seeds planted produce viable fruit? Not always true. We must pay attention to the conditions, is it fair, seasonally warm, wet, drought can decide if the seeds will produce now or within a few weeks or months. But a true farmer will plant seeds and adjust his observations to the changes and become flexible.

Hunting money is what most of us do and it might lead to the sales. This is the approach to every day setting your target. Send more emails, follow up and chase down the clients. Does this produce stress? Absolutely.

What if we could have a mix of both styles and see positive results. We send out emails and show our clients the benefits of our system. Share with them a success pattern that would grow their money with a proven system that would not cause a negative return to their personal wealth.
