“So what do you want to do?”
How many times have you been asked this?
A doting family member or perhaps a new acquaintance.
Have you ever given an answer to this and felt like an absolute fraud?
Who really knows what they want to do, off the cuff, just like that?
I don’t think anyone can truly answer that question without an element of doubt.
We live in a world where your independence, security and mental health can be so vehemently affected by your financial situation.
Theres so much to wrap your head around, and you know what?
The weight of everything you feel you need to get done, go see, learn and explore is astronomical.
So when someone asks you that question, often, your thoughts go to survival.
How much money do I want to make?
How much free time do I want?
How close to my family and friends do I want to live?
Your answer, be it occupational or vocational, will often be in line with your heart.
But when it comes down to trying to achieve, discover or expand your goals.
The truth is clear.
There’s only so much you can do with your day.
From getting up, going to work, simply surviving and then balancing your social life.
There just aren’t that many hours in a day.
Stress begins to multiply the further you get down this path without thinking about your finances.
You don’t want to lose the money you’ve sacrificed so much of your day in order to attain.
Every day that stress builds, time passes and you’re not getting any richer.
And now you’re here.
Asking yourself “how do I make money?”
“How do I take the stress that is building up inside of me and channel it into something positive?”
You might feel lost.
You might feel like you don’t have a future plan or a purpose.
That’s the world that we live in today.
With so much out there, with so much opportunity available to us on a daily basis it can feel an impossible task.
“What do you want to do with your life?”
While you ask yourself these questions, the effects of inflation take away the buying power of your savings.
Banks aren’t giving you enough interest to counteract the rising cost of things.
Stress is widely considered the single greatest killer, contributing to general health decline.
And we’re the generation tasked with a global pandemic, astronomical price hikes, a skills-gap in employment and the cherry on top?
Zero useful financial education.
Go back to those hours in the day.
And let me first say.
Take time working out what you want to do.
But let me tell you.
Put your money to work.
While you sleep.
While you work.
All the time.
Turn the dial ever so slightly, every so incrementally in your favour.
24 hours in a day.
365 days in a year.
Money will work all of them.
Holidays, weekends, birthdays, sick days.
It won’t tire.
Make as big a step as you can manage each paycheck.
As small a step as you want.
Maybe in the next world event, pandemic, war, catastrophe you can be a little closer to less stressed.
Maybe in the future you can spend more time searching for your purpose.
Spend a little less time working.
Retire a little earlier.
Play the long game today.
Stress is a killer.
Don’t let it grab hold of you in 10, 20, 30 years.
Give yourself the greatest gift of all.
A long, consistent financial plan that doesn’t put pressure on you.
No get rich quick.
Consistent and boring, but working when you sleep.
We have 4 free videos to get you started ready and uploaded on our website.

To you success,
