budget cash flow money Dec 28, 2016
I have a free gift for you below that will ease your holiday spending hangover and help you get those cards paid off fast. It’s better than a budget, and it will help you build an iron cage around your money and shift your attention to what matters most in your life. What's the value of the gift? Here's what others said. Have a look if you must, then meet me back here.
Okay, here's how it works:
Most folks are so overwhelmed during the holidays...keeping the boss happy, paying student loans, getting the kids to ball practice, caring for aging parents, planning meals, shopping for gifts...that they take their eye off the very thing that can give them more time freedom and less stress.
Specifically, they take their eye off their cash flow. That’s different than a budget.
It’s as if they're driving their financial mini-van down the road 70 miles per hour looking through a drinking straw. All they can see is what is right in front of them (their bank balance). Plus, they're distracted with kids throwing french fries at one another, cell phone buzzing, traffic whizzing by, and their mental chatter playing in the background.
Then they get slammed in the side--"T-Boned" by a financial surprise. They didn't see it coming.
I’ve personally experienced this both in my business and personal finances. I remember arriving home one Christmas Eve only to discover my bank account wiped clean. And I’ve had tens of thousands embezzled from my business by a dishonest bookkeeper.
All of this is totally preventable. Here are four steps to guide you, and a way to make it easy:
When you implement these four habits, you’re harvesting lessons from the past. You’re scanning the road ahead, looking in all your mirrors, with panoramic view and situational awareness to better plan your future. Your new, informed, fact based thinking will help you make better decisions and create new habits. Better thinking, better decisions and better habits will win the money game.
If you'd like to get this money thing under control once and for all, then join me on my free webinar January 4, 2017. You'll get free access to everything you need to implement this in January, including quick-start training and downloads in the member’s area on this website. It's my gift to you.
