“Trash” The new money making Treasure.

 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”

I like to challenge the idea of what is treasure and what is trash, and the excitement of discovering treasure. Many have made money from other peoples rubbish.

Imagine the treasure had your name on it and you had a map to it and you had a guide. If you had these would you be interested?

You may be thinking what is the treasure and is it worth it?

Your treasure may be different to my treasure, and there may be many different ways of getting it that will suit you best – but what is important is that you are looking out for things of value, whether it is something as simple empty toilet rolls or selling old coffee jars.

Try the research challenge of..Making money from (choose anything, or something you can see around you) you then using search engines or other methods find ways of making money through those avenues.

If you are “fedupofbeingpoor” this journey we will go on will make you view life differently, more hopeful, more positive, I have plans to prosper you, to give you a hope and a future, how do I know?

I have been there, I have been homeless, I have been on benefits, i have had to get food out of bins and skips.

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

Treasure hunting is about value, It is about discovering or re-discovering those things or perhaps people which are of value to us, including ourselves.

What if you are yourself are treasure?

Not many of us value ourselves and this can be hugely disabling to our mental health and also what we can achieve.

Maybe daily life or circumstances have ground us down, or maybe our self worth and self esteem is at its lowest and we are trying to cope.

Maybe on the outside we put on our “we are coping” face but inside we are secretly crying or screaming. You may have self esteem issues which makes life hard.

For me, I am constantly comparing myself to others. Let me share a story.

What do you think? Can you relate?

So if you could change this, would you? If you had someone to help you, would you?

You could be thinking any of the following:

Crock of poo! and do nothing – then you have lost nothing, but gained nothing.

Crock of poo! But be curious. – You lost nothing by checking this journey out, but have the chance to change your life – I am not talking get rich schemes, or scams or other BS things…just help, mentoring, strategies and connecting you with others that understand and can help.

Who cares? No one understands! – I CARE.. i HAVE BEEN THERE – I am still there, but my life has improved massively. Others care.

Be excited! – Great, because you can use this..This is your time!

Still not quite understanding treasure hunting? mail me.

Beginners Strategy:

The first step, let me tell you is mindset. I will write a separate blog about this, because I cannot tell you how important and a difference this makes.

If like me, any thought of hope or life improving is hard (and it is still a challenge) then you will know what I am talking about.

Is it time to de-clutter your life?

If you are thinking, where you live is messy, you never know what might turn up if you have a de-clutter and tidy up. You may even find treasure of your own or find things to sell that’s free money right there!

Perhaps you are seeking to make changes in your life? Curious? Want to know more?

Are You In?

Perhaps you are already successful and want to help others.

Please do get in touch if you read this and want to get involved.

Let me know where you are at, how you get on or if you need moral support.

That’s what I am here for!

Make a FREE online appointment, or maybe you have a success story to share and encourage someone else, or maybe you could support us and bless others.

You are not alone. BE A TREASURE HUNTER!

Happy treasure hunting!

Fed Up Of Being Poor The Journey Begins – Time to change that.

Welcome!

A quote from Walt Disney.

Thanks for joining me!

welcomeYou are welcome here! Welcome to my home, my road my journey.
This is a work in progress, like me, journey of entrepreneurship, making money, saving money, reducing poverty, helping myself and helping others.

I started this blog because I myself was “fed up of being poor” but also I heard this phrase so many times I felt I had to do something myself to change my life and then I could inspire and help others. My dream is to be financially free.

I appreciate that when people think of the word “poor” they may think of third world poverty, the sort of poverty that’s on the news but what about the poverty that’s in front of us, on our doorsteps in our own neighborhoods ,people going without food or heat or hiding from bailiffs, or homeless, roofless, going to food banks. This could be you, or your best friend of family, or your nurses, you may not even know their financial situation and that they are struggling.

As prices rise, low income families find it increasingly hard to pay for the same basic essentials. Sam Royston Chair of End Child Poverty and Director of Policy and Research at the Children’s Society.,  said ‘No family in modern Britain should be struggling to put food on the table, heat their homes and clothe their children. 

I stand with poverty charities such as “End Child Poverty” that work hard to campaign and make a difference.

Finances are often a private matter, and while you may get some who flaunt their wealth, the harsh reality is that finances often cause arguments and relationship break downs.

In-depth Relate study highlights links between debt and relationships

One in seven (14%) GB adults in debt has hidden debt from a partner, and half of these (7%) are currently doing so, according to a new report published today by leading relationship support charity, Relate. Feeling ashamed about debt is the number one reason why people hide it from their partner, with over half (51%) giving this reason. This was followed by being scared of their partner’s reaction (46%) and feeling they had different approaches to money (34%). 

“Anyone can fall into poverty.”

Anyone can feel poor, anyone can feel fed up.

Just when you think finances in relationships can be a sticking point and danger ground.. let us add more fuel.

With mental illness and mental health issues on the rise.

‘Debt and mental illness are a marriage made in hell” says Martin Lewis…

However the same article offers support and a  “How to cope strategy”

 

It is hard struggling to live on the min wage or benefits.  I have struggled to make ends meet as I tried to keep my head above water. I am not entitled to any benefits but I was on them several times at different occasions in my life.

I ended up in debt and no matter how I tried I struggled to wipe this debt.
With the cost of living going up, debts growing I began to struggle. I got fed up.

Late January 2018  I said to myself, “I was fed up of being poor“,so I decided to take action. This blog shares with you my journey, but also full of hints and tips to help others.

If you have found yourself here, and can relate to my journey, it would be good to connect with you.
