Charity begins at home

Welcome,

I have had to re edit the title of this page a few times as it covers a few areas, but I think this title really says a lot in itself.

In all of my years of charity work, fundraising work it is so humbling when you see those who cannot afford to give  “give”. This is not to meant to be offensive in any way, I mean, who am I to say who cannot afford to give – I am, because I am one of the many who give without thinking, without counting the cost, whether we can afford to or not. We would give to another before our own need even if our need is greater! Together we are rich in different ways.

 

Welcome to my blog!

As the webpage address suggests “I am fed up of being poor” – this is not to point the finger at poor people and somehow  suggest they are less of a human being than me, but the opposite – It is my obligation, my duty, my calling, to help those in poverty or are praying that phrase with bated fed up, hopeless breath..sighing “I am fed up of being poor.”

If you follow my site, thank you so so much, I love you more than I will ever be able to repay your kindness….if you are not a follower yet – I hope you soon will be.

Bit Of  HIS STORY

Back in January, maybe just before, I was “invited” to a writing group, as someone who had told a friend that I was interested in writing. Now these were mostly already published authors of great books, online material, and here I was a small fry in a pan of big cheeses, no material, no idea, nadda, nothing, just some pumped up punk with a dream of writing something.

“Just write..” “Just do it”

So I began exploring with ideas…..and finally I came up with…..

yep –  rags to riches story.. and this would be amazingly transformational, world changing, would get 1000 followers… I would be the king on my throne people…

and then… of course..one person points out….”

“but you are still in rags!”

so here is my back story…… I am not going to try to sell anyone anything or convince anyone my way is going to make anyone rich, because I am still in overdraft…. but people let me tell you this man is on a mission!!!!

I am researching, I am studying, I am building this blog as my journal ..real, live, on line off line journal of little old me just trying to better myself and in the process support others  with what I am learning…. I am learning quick.

To recap

I am no expert at being rich but I am an expert in being poor and having no money.- but getting there.

I am still in some debt,(just) (ish) (a small bit)(manageable) It is possible to get out as I have done!

I have paid off huge amounts of debt in less than 3 months.

I have discovered great resources, communities, businesses, bloggers…

I have found a new love(s)… an online love of blogging and search for passive income 9-5 job just is not where I want to be.

I have helped lots of people.

I have been helped by lots of people – this is hard and humbling especially if you are someone who is a “giver” (keep it clean people) receiving and accepting help can be very hard.

I have discovered that you discover who are genuine and sincerely want to help! –  we all appreciate free things and generosity – we believe what goes around comes around. I am thankful for the huge support I have. It is good to get connected.

So……. this month has been a struggle because although it is my fault because I have overspent –  I now have to put into place the strategies and tips I have been bleating on about in my posts..

who wants to be a bleating sheep or a sheep at all?

I have to walk my own walk and talk less of my own talk less bleating!

So here are my  Get out of debt  8 easy tips….

  1. Get help (could be internet, e.g google, you tube, websites) – Do some research…The throne room has some good resources.
  2. Do not be afraid to ask for help or too proud to receive help.
  3. Find ways to de-clutter and sell items – let us get some money coming in.
  4. If you have the opportunity to work, or do more hours take it up... suck it up for a short while, even if it is not ideal –  (Someone did suggest to me escorting – but that is not me.)
  5. Do a “talent and passions audit.” write down the things you are interested in doing and find ways to make money from it… i,e gaming, or walking the dog, or poetry, or writing, or selling…. seriously people there are ways of making money from doing almost anything.
  6. Do not talk about it….do it!
  7. Do not rely on others, trust in yourself.
  8. work work work! work for your dreams – it will pay off.

“Debt free v Financially free”

Welcome,

I am aiming at being debt free, but this is not enough, as I want to be financially free. It really feels like it is easy come easy go – more easy go:( just never enough to breathe!

I see the postman coming down the road and I think he has money for me- He has not!

I hand over my lottery ticket to the cashier hoping for a win – I do not!

I am entering free competitions in the hope I can win – I have not..

I  upgrade my blog sites so I can somehow by magic monetize them – Not happening anytime soon.

Positive thinking has its limits, but keep going!

I am researching for a neon sign that says this is how you will make easy money. Hello google…. I have not found one yet that does not have a catch – could this be a Niche market?

So I know with bills to come out unless I can find some “hustles” as the Americans term it,  I will begin to panic.

3 months ago I was over £2000.00 in debt, since then I have had to replace two cars, get out of being homeless, I have paid for two holidays and splashed out for birthday, a course on blogging and vlogging #Invest in yourself – basics – , a marketing course which was superb but again I could only afford the taster session.

The upgrades were out of my reach but I have to say , if you can get hold of any free taster sessions and you are interested in setting up businesses or marketing or just need fresh inspiration- I just want to say I learned more in one week than in a month. Sadly I am not on commission, or an affiliate, I wish I was, but I want people to succeed as much as I want to and free is still free.

Grab the freebies soak it up. Visit- SFM sneek in.

or  …. Check out this video to see if the impossible is possible? – Meet Stuart Ross

 

 

I found this really encouraging! online work is possible!

I feel like I am always at step one again looking for:
Things to sell:
search for  income:
cut costs:

REPEAT the Process:

Then google sends me a message wanting to give me a coupon for adwords,- I am yet to explore this, but could be a way of monetizing !

 Great Passive Income Ideas – Drew Allen Is one persons site I have also visited tonight for a wealth of ideas. If you are as poor as I am feeling right now Drew gives us tips.

I have to say I have also visited many peoples sites who make claims to have made a load of money online – that is great, perhaps it can be done.

The more I learn, the more I can pass on to others because I believe sharing is caring.

I am not after to make a name for myself or to  get rich, just enough to get by each month would be great.

Thanks for visiting and a special thanks to my followers for sharing my journey.

Support me financially to help others

Sorry about all the links folks but If they can help just one person, maybe that person can come and help me:)

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)

Be Appy to make money

Welcome,

If you have access to the computer or a phone apple or android then you can get games and all sorts in the apps.

I like playing games and I like earning money so I wondered if I could combine the two.

I’m often bored and like most people spend a lot of time on my phone and what’s the phrase you may hear alot,. “time is money”

So I ask you what is your time worth?

I have to be honest I’ve never been asked that nor have I thought about it until recently.

In the past I would chill and watch mind numbing TV or play on games consoles or generally waste time.

I never minded it as unwinding and relaxing is good, but recently I’ve been thinking, what if I can turn my passions into money?

Can I watch the TV and get paid?

Can I play on my cell phone or games console and get paid?

Can I go on walks or shopping and still get paid?

Can I get paid to sleep?

I get paid to do all of those, yes even sleep..

Then my mind starts going into over drive as this list could be endless and you can see where I’m going with this.

I have friends moaning how skint (poor) they are yet when I tell them there are ways of making “passive income” (extra money… I’m even picking up on monetary lingo) I get strange looks as if I’m lying or the sidelines aren’t big enough steaks for them. I know from my experiments that small change very soon adds up and the more you start to explore this field and hunt for online treasure the more you can find, its endless and no excuses… I mean 30p just to pick up a receipt that people have dropped.. Pick up as many as you can and that’s free coffee and cake money or Mcdonalds in my case.

EARNING POTENTIAL IS ONLY AS LIMITED AS YOUR MIND.

I have to share something and I’m embarrassed but, as I have been on my journey, I’ve wanted to keep the nuggets of gold (disclaimer not actual gold) I’ve discovered to myself, as in websites, videos, blogs, links, books, people, all that helped to get me this far without knowing.

I mean who wouldn’t, but I’m wrong to do this as to be honest these are not actually my nuggets, they are the result of other people’s hard work or research.

I am all up for the easy ride because I’m lazy by nature I like to take it easy, however I know if I want to succeed and be a millionaire, – this may not happen for a while or at all but I sure am going to try and I’m going to push open every door that comes my way and I’m going to work hard. (mostly because I want to prove scoffers and those that laugh or doubt me wrong)

I want to buy that large house or that new car..I am visualizing, I construct visualization boards.

When I started this journey I had a dream or vision of a long corridor and lots of doors, some open and others not and I was distracted by them all however one door was glowing white, kinda like you may see on movies like some heavenly door but this door represented my goal to be an entrepreneur to make money.

Some may quote “the love of money is the route to all evil” and I respect that, however the more money I get, the more I spend on others, so I am actually never going to be rich as I give it away.

Maybe this is what true wealth, is as you can’t take it with you when you die but you can leave an inheritance or Legacy behind to help others.

So, I’m on this journey and I’m giving myself goals..double passive income amount, save for Christmas, save for deposits, save for holidays, earn extra for holidays and it’s all about more more more! “please sir i’d like some more”(oliver twist)

So this post is for those heroes and heroines which I will link to and I will add to.

I hope you find these useful.

I look forward to hearing from you.
