What are you doing right?
Your habits with money. What are you doing right, already?
- Are you good at finding genuine deals?
- Are you good at staying out of debt?
- Are you good at being generous?
- Are you good at finding or getting money when you need it?
- Are you good at making things or repairing things yourself?
Is there a way you could enhance that?
Last Wednesday’s post was about applying your unique strengths to your money habits.
Today’s post is more direct. You do have money habits. And some of them are good. Note them and find ways to expand them.
Here’s something I’m good at. I’m good at investing. I’m good both at reading the financial pages (an acquired, and addicting, skill) and I’m good at kinda just telling what companies are going to take off, just before they actually do take off. Starbucks – check. Westjet – check. Le Chateau – check. Apple – check.
This is a good habit I have – reading, watching, setting money aside and then buying stock.
(REMINDER THOUGH – I’m not a financial planner and THIS IS NOT FINANCIAL PLANNING ADVICE. It’s simply a personal anecdote re: what I’m good at.)
I can do this a little bit, say, every quarter. But I can enhance my financial picture by doing it more frequently, and increasing my investments amount a bit. This will pay off for me.
So what are you good at? And could you do more of it? How might doing more of it pay off for you?
PS If you do want financial planning, visit my friends Tanya and Barry’s site.
PS If you want help with the basics like how to resist impulse purchases and getting out of debt, I’m taking beta testers to test my program in early February before we roll out completely live!
