FEBRUARY FOCUS

For the month of February we will spend our time focusing on how to create income.  We strongly believe at MikenDee that in order to achieve certain financial levels, making money is going to be the number one key.  Budgeting and saving money are also keys to renovating your financial house, but nothing can build that house like having more money to work with.

So let’s go to work and make this money!

When it comes to making money there are a couple of options anyone can choose and that is getting a job or starting a business.  Each come with pros and cons, but they both can be vehicles you can use to make money in 2014.  The great thing about the time we live in is that you can operate both if you need to.  While most jobs require that you physically be present in order to get paid, a lot of new businesses can be done online which means you can pretty much run a business on a smartphone or a tablet.

We will start this month offering tips on where to look for jobs, interviewing tips, what to wear, the job mentality and how to make it work for you, and tons of other information.

Check out this awesome video from Marie Forleo about dealing with money beliefs.  Marie’s videos have been instrumental in helping us here at MikenDee reshape our financial viewpoint.  For more information visit her website www.marieforleo.com

Remember our goal at MikenDee Financials is to make money simple.

ARE YOU READY TO PUSH BACK?

If you are being honest with yourself, 2014 may represent the worst of times for you financially.  It is time to become serious about making some changes that  will put you on a different path.  If you are like we were than be honest about some of the things you really want in life.  There is probably a better car, or bigger home, or exotic location you want to travel to. Being able to provide better financial support for your family. It doesn’t matter what it is, just be honest and accept the fact that there is something.

One of the first steps you have to make is pushing back.  There is a certain mindset you have that is causing you to make decisions that are impacting your finances in a negative way.  You have to first accept the fact that the way you have been doing it is wrong and will never get you to the place you really want to be at.  You have to push back and break down the barriers that have been keeping you stuck.

How do you push back?

If you are reading this, you are probably on a laptop, tablet, or smartphone, which means you have access to tons of information through the internet.  Google personal finance and there is a ton of information on how to transform your finances.  The goal here is to start putting in place a different mindset that will help you create a plan for yourself.

Today can be one of the greatest days of your life.  It can be the day you started a new financial life.

Today I read a article over at Yahoo Finance and the title of the article is “4 people who earn six figures and still feel broke.”  Immediately I had to read this and see how someone who is making over $100,000 can still be in a tough situation.

I will not go over the whole article here. What I will ask is, if someone can generate a six figure income and still feel broke, what do people who only make a less than to average income feel like?  What about all the people who are in that $10 - $20 per hour circle?

As a couple we have battled the big bad wolf of finances that are out of whack, and what we found is that while making more money can lift some burdens, bad decision making puts the same burdens right back in place.  This is why if you are like we were, you feel like a hamster on the hamster wheel constantly going in circles making little to no progress.

So with a revamped process we were able to turn our financial life around, and you can too.  If you read the article once the people got tired of feeling broke they made some changes to make a better situation.  

Always know that it is never too late to make the changes in order to have a better financial life.  Be honest with yourself about where you are, and if you don’t know how to fix it, reach out to someone to help you through the journey.
