Welcome to the month of love! My life is full of things I love. My husband, my children, my family, my friends, my clients and colleagues.
And of course, my business. And along with that, the numbers in my business. When you give more love, you receive more love. And taking the time to get along with my numbers opens up the opportunity for a lot more of it to come my way. I invite you to try it.
If you aren’t in love with your numbers yet, if you’re still a little scared to be alone with them, try these icebreakers to get started on a path to love:
1) Simply, write down on a piece of paper, a financial goal at the beginning of the month. Let’s say it’s $3,000. Support that goal with your actions. Anytime you make money, write down the amount on that sheet and celebrate your way to the goal. Money becomes fun this way.
2) Look at your overhead, bills, invoices, upcoming events. Knowing your numbers is empowering and gives you the knowledge to make decisions for growth. If you have a huge tax bill due on your house in a certain month, it might not be the best time to plan a pleasure trip or invest in a new training. If three months out of the year, you don’t pay car insurance, use the extra money to invest in your business by attending a conference you know will net a great ROI or put more money into advertising. When you truly know and understand your finances, they become easier to manage.
If you’re struggling to find love surrounding your numbers, let’s chat. You can always reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or head on over to the SSC FB or LinkedIn page and send me a note there.
