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)
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)
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.
