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.

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..

image of a sheep with open mouth making a bleating sound
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:)

Be more “Fanny Blankers”

Huge welcome, and apologies for the strange title, but got you curious?

FANNY BLANKERS, have you heard of her? She was an Olympian many years ago and who is  celebrated by google. I was inspired by her life.

Have you ever heard the phrase “be careful what you ask for” you may just get it?

I want to grab this and claim it for me, for YOU for those others who  are”fed up of being poor” but also those of us who want to BE MORE SUCCESSFUL.

I WANT TO SEE YOU BE SUCCESSFUL. 

I may not even know you, but the fact that you are reading this means you are reading it for a reason.

In short: I want to see us grab and claim!

I want to see us get the traffic we need, get the adverts, get the help, get that thing that we are after.. Reach strive.. Get back up again! Come back stronger.

Do you have people in your life who did not encourage you but instead mocked your dreams and ideas?

Today we look at them and are reminded that we are better, we were created for greatness.

We are the dreamers, the idealists, the pragmatists, the revolutionists, the pioneers, the trail blazers, the do- ers, and the why nots!

This last week the theme of re-visiting my “vision board” kept coming back to me.

If you have never done a “vision board” I cannot recommend them enough.

I fully believe in the power of these.

In essence, though they can be as creative or as simple as you want them, they are just goals and dreams you want to see happen put on paper, or on your tech device.

It can be the clients you want, the business, the house, the car, debts paid off.

For me currently its a donation from an unknown source for £2000 to start my business to support others. (FULL TIME)

Visualization….

Rubbish you may think! Or if you have a board let me know your experiences. I will soon be uploading mine and then filling you in when it comes true.

If you want help doing one. get in touch for your free vision board.

I will happily help anyone free of charge-no catch.

I want to see more people:

visualizing

Dreams of success:

Bank accounts being filled rather than have holes:

Debts being repaid:

People investing in themselves and others:

Giving people a hand up instead of a hand out unless it is reaching out!

When the little fishes seek help-for Gods sake just help them because you were them once and one day you may need that help.

Pay it forward:

Don’t forget your roots and routes:) where you were from and how you got there.

Today it does not matter who you are, where you are from, I believe in you.

be a trail blazer
