Debt free, financial Abundance in one year.

Welcome welcome to this blog here at fedupofbeingpoor.com, and just to jump on the band wagon Happy New year.

I am Steven Alexander, blogger, writer,coach and much more, good to see you here.

If you are new here, my blog is all about helping people out of the poverty trap, giving them hints, tips, easy ways to make money legally that anyone can do with no experience, talent or skills, any age, any gender, non judgemental.

the site is a sign post to a whole range of resources and help out there available to those that need it should people want it and saying they are, fed up of being poor, fed up of being skint, no money.

It aims to be a helping hand and to be the thing that I needed when I was in the situation I was in. This is mainly a journal and a journey, so one day when people ask, how did you do it I can tell them. Is this an easy journey, is it a get quick rich scheme is it a selling site – it is none of those. This site may contain adverts and banners as i need to pay for this site and may point to other services but primarily it is to help those that need it.

So, honestly speaking… how was 2018 financially for you?

In today’s post I will cover:

i) 2018 financial goals and how I achieved them through determination and hard work.

ii) fedupofbeingpoor.com gets on you tube. special edition.

iii) Blogging saved my mental health and helped others and earned me money.

iv) Achieved qualifications

v) Set up of my own business and new career as a Motivation Coach.

I discover Law of attraction – and see it work!

So here was how I did it –

I have to be honest it was quite the ride for me.. and these were my goals.

GET OUT OF DEBT

GET MENTORS – SEEK HELP – EDUCATE MYSELF

SAVE and MAKE MONEY…….

So what did I learn and did it work?

One of my goals last year was to get on you tube– why because I felt that was where the cool folk go to and are.. and I could help people and…..

.And .. well I was not cool and had no idea what I was doing.

However I gave it a go because I wanted to teach my 7 year old to be better with her money than me and give her the teaching I did not have when I was her age… and guess where the cool kids hang out … on you tube… so I had to prove her old man was cool and she could go into school proud to tell her friends her dad was indeed “a you tuber”

Do you want to see it??? It is not polished it is not professional, it is only basic and aimed at 7 year olds as my target audience.

Enjoy. Please like out of kindness.

It was my first and maybe last video. PLEASE REMEMBER ITS TARGET AUDUIENCE!

Nov 2017 – March 2018 Mission raise £3000 to get me out of debt. Bare in mind I had also been made homeless end of November, my car had been written off and I was  also penniless.

I managed to get a roof over my head, got lots of paid work and  I did this in 3 months and bought my first car that I paid for by myself in December.

2018 Late Jan after forking out lots of money on the old car and getting fed up, I had to scrap this an.d invest in a better car.. I ended up with a car I had wanted for a while.. large boot, tow bar, automatic and the make I wanted at a price I could afford.

Feb 18 – August saw me just get as much work as I could as I was on my own (as previously I was in a relationship with joint finances) but now I had rent to find and food and the cost of living to find…This was hard work and I pulled some crazy hours at work to make sure I did not slip into debt. and I did what I needed to do.. There was no way I wanted to go back.

Studied hard – I watched so many you tube videos and connected with lots of money saving sites and money making sites, looking at passive income and income streams  (Do a web search and lots come up) and I started to make and save money…

I started this blog to help others and myself, with the hope of the blog earning money… let me share with you.. this is a skill and honestly do you want to know how much I earn from this site…0.06$ this last year from ads… so I have a long way to go… but I have helped others and myself which is more important. Maybe this time next year I will be a millionaire #millionaire mindset. This blog acted like a journal and really did help my mental health as I became depressed and every day was a real battle to live.

I cut down on who I gave money to.. If you feel that others need it more than your needs then you have to do what you feel is right for you.

I learned the difference between what I wanted and needed, so was I wasting what I did have? How can I make my money stretch further? who owes me money or favours – time to cash in…..

Finally I saw another you tube video about some guy wanting me to buy his book or come to a conference and how he turned his life around from his sales job to his own business which is still in sales only for himself…. BUT the point of his book is how to turn your passions into money….. so I made a list of my hobbies and interests and how to make money from these. “Passion into Profit” Andy Harrington – check him out.

Mentors – These were not actual mentors as such one to one but I have to mention those I tuned to and helped me… (Click inside the brackets below to take you to the links)

Work from home – (passive income)

(skintmomanddad)

Dave Ramsey (lots of videos on you tube) – (Be better with money and get out of debt  7 steps to success)

Martin Lewis  – (Money saving Expert )

Jamie Rohrbaugh  “Over not Under” Christian support for those who need extra help  – (prayers and resources.) 

Kain Ramsey  (teaching and encouragement) and the (Achology community) 

and to friends mainly and two great churches in the uk where I live( Light of Life Baptist Church)  and  (Kingsgate community Church) who looked after my spiritual well being.

Steve Bremner, an inspirational guy Author, mentor amongst other things who challenged me to be better but more importantly to start writing. If you have a passion for writing any book or blogs especially I recommend Steve. Start your dream to write click here:

Coaching  (“SAS Mindset Coaching”)- I now offer life coaching and have currently qualified in Hypnotherapy and Neuro-linguistic  Practice (turning negatives into positives, rewiring of the brain) Money coaching and with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy coming soon and I will be adding to my counselling skills shortly but  if you fancy some quick free coaching tips if in need of some piece of mind you can still get these over at the other blog I run click here >>>>> Refiners Way

I am also debt free, mortgage free and soon in a job that pays more and the hours suit me better and I can still do my coaching and whatever else I need  or want to do thanks to the art of leverage – #Freedom life  – I may post about this another time.

The law of attraction helped me to focus on what I wanted and I saw mind blowing results by focusing on the things I wanted..job positions, new cars, houses for sale I liked “just pop up for sale” money making opportunities.

This were my high lights of the year how was yours and what do you have planned for this year?

THANK YOU for following me, your support has really been amazing and I cannot thank my followers enough- This year is going to be bigger and explosive and I would love to take you all with me if you want to stay in touch.

This site will change as it develops a little but please bare with me.

I am also open to feedback on how it can be better for you. I am sorry this post has been about me….it has been a hard year, very hard – The next few posts shall return to helping to serve you.

God bless you for reading and look out for further Posts.

Never be broke again!

Hi and welcome.

Question – would you prefer famine or feast?

This may seem an odd question and one I came across in a search the other day.

I realised recently I do not want to work harder in life.

This is actually not a new thing, this concept, but has long been a dream of mine. I love dreaming my concepts.

I have remained in this dream not knowing how to make it real and I am all about making my dreams become reality… And I have some great dreams.

I want my money to work harder which means I have to be smarter.

I do not have much, and I do not earn much, and yes I am sure I can improve that

Maybe, I need to use what nature has given me a little bit more….turn my passions and interests into pounds.

The road is long and steep but I am getting there.. And I am on the road.” Steven Alexander 2018

So today I am learning how to:

Acquire wealth

Keep wealth

Be smarter.

If I realise I am lacking in knowledge in a certain area or fear, then I am learning to become master of this.

I have known famine and I have known feast..

I know which I prefer!

below is the video that inspired this trail of thought. (there may be more on you tube)money skills – never be broke again! (It may feel slow going to start with.. dig deep)

I will certainly give some of these a try.

have a good day, and abundance with you.

Stay Hungry

Welcome,

Can I ask a question. “Are you hungry right now..and if so what are you hungry for?

Are you fed up of being poor? Do you know what it is like to-be-so-fedup-of-beingpoor?

“Stay hungry” seems an odd title, but this idea of being “hungry” for something is a real motivator as it can push you to strive more for whatever that need is.

When most people think of hungry, they think of being food hunger..but if you think about that feeling, it is about a deep need that needs to be filled, so in that case you need food.

Today I am writing about that hunger to get out of debt maybe or earn extra income or have a better relationship with money … do you ever feel those those?

Do you want to have £250.000 in your account or whatever the equivalent  in your currency?

That would be amazing right?

I have a vision board, and on that board is that figure £250,000..

Every day I look at that and I say to myself I want to earn £250, 000.

You may ask why do I want that? why would you ?

I have seen a house that I want. It is beautiful!!

It has lots of rooms, large garden, room for cars and visitors and  a kitchen to cook for family and friends and somewhere where I can do my washing and a swimming pool.

Maybe if I had money left over I would start a business to help others.

The truth is ,I have seen many houses like this, but can I afford them? -No.

I am on minimum wage, I struggle to keep my head above the water…….

BUT I aim to be resourceful and one way or other I will get the money I need, why because I have passion and drive. I am hungry! I do not want to be poor, I do not want to live in poor housing and worry if buying my kids shoes means I have to go without food myself, but I buy those shoes.

Sometimes that figure seems miles away and a mountain… but I read somewhere…

“I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” Matthew 17:20

I tell you one way or other I will get what I want because I am hungry. I have a dream, I have vision and I know how good that will feel because I can feel that now as though I have received it -I am hungry! (Law of attraction thinking!)

“What to focus on totally affects your life. Think about it. whatever you focus on you will feel even though it’s not true….Focus equals feelings… feelings equals direction” Tony Robbins

A teacher once told me a story of two men who looked out of a prison cell and one looked up and saw the stars and the other looked down at the mud – same position different perspective.

I am holding strong to a vision I had how me giving  to others all I have will see it paid forward back to me several times over because I give unconditionally without conditions and this comes at great risk and cost to myself but I have faith.. it may be little faith.. small faith, faith the size of a mustard seed – but I believe!

I would love for my blogs to earn me money. I would like for all the free advice I give out to earn me money..I would like the part time job I have to give me more money but I am looking after my daughter and frankly I want to enjoy life and working full time would kill me – (but it would bring in extra income!)

Some might say but If I am not prepared to work full time then money will not come as I am lazy.

This is wrong! I have been at work for 24 hours and I still have time to help and support others on line in need of help, and I watch videos that will make me a better person and educate myself which keeps me up when  should be sleeping but I strive to be better human being and helping others keeps me alive.

Maybe I  want life on my terms and work what I want when I want, and even if I earned enough so I did not have to work, I would still work because that is who I am, in a job I am guessing that is helping others less fortunate than myself.

Let me encourage you to keep dreaming. Change your focus if you need to.. change your story if your story isn’t working for you, because the same story gets dull right!

Stay hungry!

Achieve those dreams?

Continue to be so fed up of being poor.

God bless you and thanks for reading and following.

Bed cash Hair brain! 91 ways to make money while you sleep.

Greetings and Welcome!

I was up till late last night.

I woke up and thought to myself…

“I did not feel like getting up, wouldn’t it be good if I could just lie in bed all day and make money from the comfort of my own bed….” and my mind began to wander.

man sleeps on a bed of bank notes across the bed
Wishing I was asleep on a bed of money

I wondered if this was actually possible… I want to be like this guy Lightning GM Steve Yzerman

The challenge was on.. I set myself a mission to earn £50.00.. not quite the millions of dollars in that photo. I appreciate this may not seem like a lot to some people but to me this was….. Could I do it? I wondered if it was possible to make money while I slept.

At this point bed hair began to turn to hair brain…

From the comfort of my bed I reached out for my phone and began tapping.

If you are as curious as I am you may want  to check these out to check out if this is actually achievable.

91 WAYS TO MAKE MONEY WHILE YOU SLEEP!

This is insane as this is just page 1 on GOOGLE!

I think to myself If I applied myself for a solid few weeks, if I literally just focused on these…perhaps from the comfort of my own bed, then at some point I CAN EARN MONEY WHILE I AM ASLEEP –
It is at this point I wish I had an “Alexa” to put the my kettle on for me and make me coffee. I have to say I experienced one of these the other day. “Alexa” was amazing!!!
Meet big “Alexa” but she has sisters.. oh yes!!!

“Alexa” told me the time, playing me music, acknowledged me as the boss, put the kettle on…..at some point I am having one myself. I have to say I AM IN LOVE WITH “ALEXA”
I SO LOVE AMAZON!
Well folks, I would love to chat more, however I am currently listening to an audio version of “RICH DAD, POOR DAD” ROBERT KIYOSAKI on you tube . I was going to get the book but this video just saved me a few pounds, but again,
It is actually rather educational, and I can listen from bed while I check out the above links.
This time next year will be a millionaire!

picture of a sign with the words "opportunity Centre" displayed on it and an arrow pointing forward towards it
Follow the path of opportunity

 I was going to say “Thanks for following and reading ” because :
I was taught to be polite,
I am genuinely thankful that people think this is worth reading
I get a little excited feeling when I see a new follower – sad but true!
but then…… I came across an article that said “STOP SAYING THANK YOU ON SOCIAL MEDIA” by this guy – Ian Anderson Gray
“How about doing something a little different?”

Reaching out to others and achieving goals and dreams together

Hello my friends welcome back to another exciting fun filled blog of procrastination, adventure, and probably nonsense.

So friends let us just dive right in here with somersaults and back flips like  a pro diving Olympian. (thank fully no heights are involved)

So the title today, …I have had to re word it slightly, but metaphorically as the waves of life can battle us and how those waves can come, I thought it was a great array of describing words.

“Hold your shhh ip together”

I have spoken about vision boards and goals in other posts, and it is always good to see a measure of someone by seeing what they actually do : again “walk the walk”

So here are a couple of mine. –

Be mortgage free.

I am in the process of selling my old family home that has tenants in. Whist it has paid a portion of one morgage off, it did not cover the rent of where I was living, which was a tiny  place. 4 years ago I moved from a family home to follow my dream of :-

living by the sea. I put things in storage and I lived in a caravan (I think my american family would call it a “van” or a “trailer”) for a while until I could get a house. The beaches are beautiful, I see seals often in the wild, I kayak, I have owned a small boat.

I made this dream happen!

The rent was under the market value to support the struggling family who lived there and they had no rent rise in 7 years. Knowing what it is like to struggle, I wanted to help the family out.

The time has come to sell it and move on.

The sale of the house will make me MORTGAGE FREE

To be retired at the age of 40 – I currently work part time so I am semi retired – (I tell myself)

The reality is without a miracle or a lottery win or kind benefactor, I will not be retiring anytime soon, and even if I retired from my current job I would still be involved in unpaid charity work. – I am still working at being FINANCIALLY FREE

TO BE A WRITER

Always dreamed of writing. I used to write the odd poem, been known to write the odd story, but moving on…but more recently I wanted to start living this more. I joined a group who encouraged me to “Just write!” and so  began.

5 months on.. I am now currently writing reviews, write and research for friends who need support. I am thinking about an e book. I write the occasional blog and poem. I have a novel in mind which is in early stages. – I am achieving but developing.

To own my own business – I am so far off this mark I am barely off the blocks but the fact is I am off the blocks so I am progressing very slowly with ideas and options.

SHARE SUCCESSES AND FAILURES

It is great when we succeed or can share our success stories, but it is also ok to fail, as by failure we learn to grow and develop and help others out.

I am not sharing my journey for any accolade or ego trip. I am writing these as a reminder for me but also to encourage you out there, who ever you are, whatever you do to keep hold of your dreams and missions and hold on to these during the rough seas.

It can be hard to “keep our ship” together but that is when we need to dig deep and hold on to our resources and hard work already done. I strongly believe that although sometimes we may think it is all for nothing, at some point things will click. 

Let me share  a quick story.

As I sat at inside an american eating place yesterday, a guy is over hearing me on the phone talking to my lawyer about my house sale, and starts yelling across the restaurant to talk to me, or rather tell me about his housing issues.

I invite the stranger over to sit with me, and then begins to tell me his life story of battles with is land lady trying to evict him, not doing things legally or by the book. Going on I learn about his medical issues, and family issues, not being able to see his kids, and battle with mental health and suicide.

By the end of our conversation we had talked about long term planning, goals, life survival skills, peer to peer support, tenant advice, and the guy thanked me for making him smile and giving him a sense of hope.

This my friends, is what I live for to help other human beings out, and so occasionally you may see a paypal link to my site so I can be available and support people, whether it is free counselling, mediation, practical support etc… jack of many trades, master of none.

I have many such instances like these. It is nice to know that the things I had worked hard for and even battled could help others.

Increase Income – I have picked up more shift work. While this is not ideal and hard work it brings in just enough to cover debts – money is out there, sometimes it is a matter of how much we want it and are prepared to do for it. (I am still thinking of signing up to be a “rent a friend” though ethically this still does not sit well with me personally. I believe it is possible to DOUBLE YOUR INCOME.

My Throne Room – I promised I would be opening up a “throne room” of resources. Please do go and check it out.

So my 5 TOP TIPS today as you go about your personal missions whatever they may be are to:

Hold on to dreams and goals,

Keep hold of the Long game.

Keep walking the walk – lead by example.

Choose your mentors wisely.

Use your training and resources.

Next Level Ogres

Welcome,

What has a womble, a toilet, attraction, and hope all have in common?

I am facing the challenge Of taking my blogs and my life to the next level and I am scared.

Welcome to “Fed up of being poor” – Great to see you here.

Today I  am like an excited kid in a children’s store…my mind is on fire, my heart is racing, and I am in “love” – let me share more!

Image displaying the words News flash image displaying the words breaking news    Image displaying the words News flash

First of all ……………..(he looks round to see who is listening)

image displaying the words hot off the press
Illustration depicting cutout printed letters arranged to form the words hot off the press.

I have not gone public with this, you my lovely followers are the first to know and I hope to be a huge part in…. well you are invited anyway!

WAIT FOR IT – YOU MAY NEED TO SIT DOWN.

I am opening up a  passage people…. my very own secret passage…. There I  said it people!

Hang in there, hang in there.. allow me to explain…

This will  in fact will be a link to anther site I am creating which will be full of resources or more things, going into depth. So it could be free stuff, or tools, or information, or how to’s I have collated together on a particular topic.

This will be Called The Throne Room– you heard it here first.

toilet

I am not sure how it will develop or what it will look like, but will just be  a place for folk to take what they find useful or “treasure” as I call it… or if not flush it or ignore it like “trash.”

I would love for folks to get on board as I make more connections.

One persons treasure is another persons trash – Check out my treasure n trash post but let me tell you folks here in the uk there is a huge trend gathering momentum, an army as it were, a swarm, individuals, couples, teams, and who are they and what are they doing?

These folk ARE wombles “Wombles” named after the awesome and cool cartoon ( I believe it was just uk..not sure) about some animal type creatures who would turn trash and turn it into something great and useful or valuable.

People are making good money from literally trash. They may pick up receipts from the floor and turn them into cash on their cell apps or points as one example, but they are not proud, if there is money to be made they will do it.. I  want this mentality I want in. GOOGLE “WOMBLING” for more. (or whatever search engine you use.

“Love is patient, love is kind, love never gives up hope”

Earlier I mentioned I was in love… Here is me…

cartoon image of someone holding their head concentrating
I am focusing positivity

This is me putting into practice the law of attraction (obviously younger when I had hair.)

– I am trying to be patient and wait for things to come together,

  • I am trying to love myself more, and be more kind to myself and others.
  • I am trying not to give up and hope and bow to that feeling of being overwhelmed so much I remain frozen or static.

Join me and follow me next time as I go into this more and catch up with my money making mission to see if I am managing to walk the walk.

Thank you for reading and following:)

Come Back Soon!
