Money Tips- dream big, dream bigger

Welcome to my blog,

Question – How good are you at keeping secrets or sharing?

For the last few weeks I have been focusing on making money rather than saving money.

That said, I was excited to deposit money at the end of this month I had been saving into 3 pots, a christmas saving pot, a charity box, and another saving pot.

You may not think this in itself is amazing, however having never saved before or having an emergency fund or rainy day pot, those who also struggle with saving will also think this is huge, and it is huge…

I have hit a wall with income streams, and trying to trickle more money while searching for, “the big money makers” and getting no where (or so it seems)

I really want to know the insider secrets but I don’t want to buy software that may or may not deliver, I don’t want to invest in stocks or bit coin that I can lose on, I want certainties, assurances, genuineness, and trust.

My dream is to work from home, internet, or writing or research but also helping people to realise their dreams and seeing them soar and I can’ t do this by myself, I need you!

In my own journey i’ve seen people excited at saving that works for them through something I shared, seeing peoples face light up when I teach them things or open their eyes to opportunities. This is what excites me.!

I have seen how the strategies I have learned have enabled me in just 2 months, to clear credit card debt, over draft debt, save, pay for a holiday, have spare spending money, get a bigger place to live, buy a new car, (still second hand but vast up grade)

I know that this is a drop in the ocean and just the start for me.

I am dedicated, I love to learn, and I persevere.

I thank you all who follow me as I love your blogs or looking at what you do, and would love to connect with entrepreneurs who are interested or already mentor others. You folk inspire me but also scare me as I wish I was as successful.

I believe in the “pay it forward” ideology, so if you have any tips or secrets you could share with those struggling or just setting out, would be amazing.

If you are reading this and it’s you who needs support, drop me a line, i’m a good listener and sounding board.

Stay focused, keep dreaming people, You got this!

Remember dream big.

DREAM BIGGER!

thanks for dropping by

When I started my money mission a few months ago, I had a vision of tiny streams coming into a river.

I’ve had similar visions of picking money bags off trees and these magically being replaced.

You may scoff or laugh at such dreams but within these there are several learning tips.

Firstly it’s good to dream!

By focusing on our dreams we can work towards them, and I mean work.

Opportunities may come your way, search and seek and they will come, but we may have to work for them.

Streams of income may come in a variety of shapes and sizes,

Be Grateful for the small or large, but always be on the look out as mentioned above, as any of these sources could dry up!

Emotional Awareness – this may not affect everyone but it can be a hard battle constantly searching and working for income streams, passive income, and I wish there was an easy way of doing it, but easy usually comes with risks or uncertainties or more research and work or trust.

Emotional Awareness – What It Is and Why You Need It

Adverts selling software or strategies or sign up schemes OR investing just a small amount of money to get a huge return… Always read the small print!

Set aside budgets, and plan money in and out. If you want help with this let me know.

Keep receipts!  These can be used for apps that can also earn you money.(links will added soon.. or search yourself)

Book “you time” OR time away and more importantly time away from “work”and” life” it is important.

Turned your phone off recently?  or your consoles or social media or lap tops etc Not many of us do.

Setting a budget!

It has been good to set a budget, I haven’t gone without or denied myself anything I have wanted, but I have found my needs and wants have changed.

Good luck in your mission. Please do share your hints and tips, and spread the love.

Thanks for reading and following. Keep in touch.

Be Hope (full) – not hope (less)

Pennies from Heaven.

Welcome!

Yep that is my piggy bank:) cute huh.

My grandma used to say “look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves” as a kid of 11, I was like OK grandma… But how wise she was!

A random question for you. If you saw say a currency note on the floor, value of 5,10,20 how many of you would pick that up? Would you pocket it?

As a child, my dad made me take a £20.00 note to the police station I found in a puddle.

Occasionally though money is found on the floor.. As to what you do with it next is your decision.

I’m wondering however, what if it is just a penny or 5p or similar, would you still pick it up? (I appreciate it would be different currency in another country)

see a penny, pick it up

If someone said to you to go and Pick some receipts off the floor they could be worth 30p each, plus it’s cleaning up your neighborhood would you do it? I’m thinking probably not but some might.

I’m presented by this kind of dilemma regularly.

On the one hand I’m praying God I want some money, Do prayers for money work? I need some, and then opportunities come along where I can get pence on maybe surveys or picking up receipts or finding the odd coin.

How many of these opportunities do you think I pass up? I will be honest a lot, and why? Because I think it’s not worth it.

Now here’s the thing, whether a believer in God the cosmos the universe, whatever or no faith, you may have muttered under your breath your need or want for money, just as I do quite frequently.

Now opportunities come my way where I can earn little or sometimes I do not even have to earn it, yet I pass them by. If I then pass the little things because I cannot be bothered or too much like hard work, then what chance do I have of getting the big bucks in.

Perhaps I might have a flutter on the lottery or have a bet thinking I might win big, but who really wins? You go in the store for a lottery ticket and you come out with groceries and then you don’t even win.. Do the math, does it add up to you?

I am not saying do not do those things but be aware of addictions or how much money you are spending if you are indeed fed up of being poor because let’s face it, this is a potential area of weakness for some right!

Regularly I tell myself “this week I’m going to win the lottery.” but of course I do not, but who knows.

Let me share with you though, that since starting this blog that: I have gone from zero saving to now I have 3 kinds of saving boxes. One for charity, one for my kids because they always want or need something and one for myself as I save for Christmas.

Every Christmas I seem to have no money to buy presents etc but I seem to find the money and then of course I’m in debt after. Each year I promise myself things will be different so this year I’m not only making a change I’m saving my change.

I always like the idea of giving to charity and again I give out of debt and money I can’t afford and being honest these charities have more money than me but I still give.

I do believe what goes around comes around and so where I am able I like to give and would like to give more.

I found a recent website that encouraged me to save pennies each day and it seems to be working. I have to warn you though there is a danger of dipping in to it if I need change for something. WARNING DO NOT DO THIS! Get out of the habit.

I am working hard at changing my mindset as well about pennies and valuing any kind of money whatever the opportunity (within reason)

Today if you are feeling fed up of being poor, let me encourage you to
