Thanks for stopping by to check out my updated blogs. I have grown and now I am ready to reset my blogs and share what I have learned and hope that my message will help.
My journey to recovery from a financial mess has provided me new insight. Initially, I thought that by having a goal was enough. What I learned was there was resistance on my part to let go of habits that were binding and stifling my progress. I would swing from being overly frugal to overspending.
When writing the book, Be Savvy, Live Wealthy, I encountered some major roadblocks of choosing mentors and assistance that were detours. I learned that DIY (doing it yourself) did not provide the professionalism and the desired final product. Some advice came with a high price tag and low quality.
How to select a great mentor–ask questions, ask to see their work and how they have helped others. Do they provide a guarantee for their service? Anyone who is professional will be willing to provide a guarantee and willingness to provide a refund if the services are not met.
Join a group of writers and a support team that will give feedback and offers suggestions. Writing is a skill and often practiced solo. Once you have produced a product, you will need to decide how to market and take it live.
I had so many ideas, however, I found that I needed another set of eyes to focus and gain clarity. I developed a team approach to bringing my project to fruition. One person who handles my website and the technical stuff. A person who helps with the videos and is setting up my Youtube channel. The ideas of blogs topics and writing required an editor who would check my grammar and syntax. Last but most important, how to market and brand yourself. This is the part that automation makes the difference. My goal is to be known as the how to take a setback and become a financial comeback after 50.
Happy investing in yourself
