When I meet with people to help them come up with a plan to win with their finances, I turn into a salesman.
What am I selling? HOPE
How are sales? THROUGH THE ROOF!!!
Every week during my classes, counseling sessions, and speaking engagements I see HOPE reappear! It PUMPS ME UP because I know that HOPE is what will inspire one to sacrifice some fun things now to achieve lifelong dreams.
It excites me because I know that a person with HOPE will be able to plow through some tough times and hard decisions to free themselves financially and go do exactly what God put them on earth to do – regardless of the income potential!
Here are some results of some recent HOPE sales:
- A person saw that they could be debt-free twelve months sooner if they just sold a car – so they went and sold it!
- A person saw that they could save $600/year on car insurance – so they went and got better insurance!
- A couple recently sat in my office and talked about finances TOGETHER for the first time EVER!
- A couple had never been able to give to their local church like they wanted to. From the month that they met with me, they have been able to give like they have always wanted.
- A couple saw that they could be debt-free more than two years sooner if they just sold their cars – so they went and sold them!
- A young couple getting ready for marriage saw how powerful compound interest was and went and set up their Roth IRA investments with automatic monthly contributions!
Folks, HOPE is there! If you do not have HOPE, I assure you that there is a way to win with your finances! It may not be easy. It may not be fun. It may not be appealing. But for those who have decided to tackle it head-on – they are winning and I am PUMPED UP!
