“Sorry honey, we just can’t afford that this month.”
How many times have you said that? Or has your significant other said it to you? One of the turning points in my business was when I vowed that I would never again would I say “We can’t afford this.” I now say “How can we afford this?” It’s amazing how that one simple shift in vocabulary and mindset opens a WORLD of possibilities and potential.
This is not typical of the way most people think. Most people are conditioned to be complacent in their financial goals and never really think beyond their salaries or hourly wages. And every time they get a raise or promotion, there’s usually more month at the end of the money, isn’t there? When we don’t plan for where our money is going or have multiple streams of income, it’s hard to dream big because our goals and desires are restricted to paying for necessities and bills.
That’s one major reason I started my virtual business. It’s such a gift to have EXTRA income every month to cover those unexpected expenses, fun splurges, savings for our next vacation, and give more generously to causes we care about.
Ever wish you could bring in an extra $500 or $1000 (or more) super part-time alongside your job or while staying home with the kids? How would it feel if your home-based hustle paid for your mortgage each month? Or covered gas and groceries? OR entirely covered your next family vacation?
Would that make a difference for your family? It sure has for mine.
