If you think you can’t do something, you’ve already lost.
A lot of people get overwhelmed when it comes to thinking about saving money for retirement. You might find it funny, but we don’t generally talk about retirement savings on this blog.
We talk about regular and automatic savings. We talk about tricks to make yourself save more money than you thought possible. We talk about empowering your family to engage in healthy habits to save and invest regularly to insure you actually have a future.
No one likes to hear warnings and people don’t always think “you can save more money” are words meant for them.
Did we mention that saving money is boring? Most people like to hear stories about “getting rich quick.” However, most significant wealth comes thru a slow building process. It may not be sexy, but it works.
Our blog is not a positive thinking blog either, but it is an action blog. We say that you have to begin now and you have to look for opportunities to save. You have to push money from checking to savings vehicles. You must negotiate on everything and put the money you saved thru negotiation in actual savings (or you’ve saved nothing).
Look hard at your expenses. Figure out what you can reduce or eliminate. Ask the people you owe money and those businesses you purchase from on a regular basis to help you reduce the payout by 10 – 15% or more (and put that savings in….you guessed it….savings).
More? Keep reading this blog or our main blog (www.stickyasset.com/blog). We’re into saving you money. We are into your family avoiding interest and fees. We are into your family building wealth.
If you think you CAN do something, you’ve already WON. You’re a winner. That means you can build your own plan for saving and investing regularly. You can do it! Start today!
SAVE MORE THAN MONEY
In this country we don’t do enough to teach our children about money, managing money, saving regularly (and automatically), compound interest and steady investing for a long-term future. As a parent, we are always concerned that they get a good education and go to a good college so they can make a lot of money or have a valued career path. The truth is that we could do our children the biggest favor and one of the best things by sharing with them sound saving and investing principles.
You can join our free Facebook group (or have your children do it, too) by searching in the Facebook bar on your “wall” for “Live The Lifestyle Your Family Deserves.” Click on “become a fan.” It’s free and it ties our free blogs into that group.
If you want to give your children the same information we are giving ours, you can purchase the only thing we sell on any of our blogs or groups. It’s called “How To Survive Any Financial Crisis” and you can get it for only $4.95 at http://www.middleclassmoney.com.
Thank you for reading our blog and good luck!
