Do You Need to Save Money or Make More Money?

Do You Need to Save Money or Make More Money?

👌
If you make enough money you dont have to live in save mode and love with a scarcity mindset.
Do you need a cushion, an emergency fund?
YES.
Is that the first thing you should focus on?
The answer for most people is YES.
However, if you don’t focus on making more money, and then on having that money make money- you will never be free.

I save but my mind is always trying to figure out how to MAKE MORE MONEY.

I’m sure @daveramsey will disagree, what about @grantcardone ???

Dig into this one folks.

Amazon Prime aka the bait and switch

24 Mar

So I had Amazon Prime, heck I’ve had it for years. And now I see that effective this month when I reset my year it’s going to be $20 more. I personally find this egregious.

As they keep adding cost I’m not really getting value. There is no reason for them to raise cost at this point except because they want to hammer me for the one or two parts of the Amazon Prime service I use.

Let’s talk about perceived value.

Amazon Prime get you the free shipping and the discounts and the special bundles and you can get some Kindle books and there’s some other discounts and then now there’s Whole Foods you get a discount and you can get Amazon Prime Store card which is through Synchrony Bank, Amazon itself blah blah blah. So here comes Jeff Bezos saying that they’ve added so much more value that it justifies a 20% increase in the cost of Amazon Prime. I call foul the play. I’d actually call b******* but I don’t want to curse on my own blog.

Even if I use every single option Amazon Prime offered me, literally everything- the photos, the video, the Prime video, the access to Old HBO shows, the Whole Foods, the free delivery, the pantry, Amazon is getting money from me every month excetera excetera I still don’t see any value in adding a 20% increase of cost.

I’d be paying more and using it less.

So it is canceled.

No mess,

No fuss, no muss.

It is done.

Bye Amazon.

Admission of the week: I am not as financially prepared as I need to be

16 Feb

Admission of the week:

I am not as financially prepared as I need to be.

So no long story or fancy financial news or social media hacks today.

Today what I have for you is a stark admission- I am not financially prepared to a level I need to be or should be given the amount of financial intelligence I possess.

I know how to make money. I know how to save money. I know how to be resourceful. The problem is I haven’t put all these skills together. Now as my own lawyer I will say I left my home state and job career excetera to relocate with my family when it was only three people deep and now there’s four people deep cuz my next son is coming in 2 months. Now I can say that that was the reason I could not get ahead. But I’ll be honest and say that the impetus of having a family should have moved me before I had a family. I know that’s a lot to swallow it’s a simple fact and a basic truth. I did not commit when I should have. I was having making some money having some Investments and getting some stocks.

And yes I own some Tesla and some Sprint and some muscle farm and some other companies. But it is not enough. My family deserves so much more. And you know what, in all honesty my peace of mind deserves more. When we say we do it for our family or friends are Legacy excetera that’s all great oh, but you should be doing it for yourself. I should be dominating the world because I want to. And I want to. I just kind of quit when things got comfortable. The lesson tonight is simply don’t get comfortable build build build, sleep when you’re dead.
