How To Have Your BEST (Financial) YEAR YET

One of the top New Year Resolutions people “resolve” to do is related to the improvement of one’s finances. Common resolutions include: “pay off debt”, “save money”, and “budget consistently”.

Hopefully, you’ve made a financial resolution for 2016. I know I have!

It is important to take steps toward your resolution as soon as possible to prevent old money habits and hangups from thwarting your goal.

One way to take a positive step forward is to participate in our upcoming live online event this Thursday night at 8:00 PM EST! I’m going to be sharing some key tips you can employ to ensure you have the BEST YEAR YET.

It’s going to be a gathering of hundreds of like-minded people. I promise you this: you will laugh, you will be challenged, and I’ve actually employed each tip in my own life and experienced positive results.

It’s FREE, but you do need to register. Once you’ve registered, all the details will be emailed to you, plus we’ll send you a reminder shortly before the event begins.

4 Painful (very painful!) Financial Lessons I’ve Learned

I’ve learned some painful lessons in my financial journey. Some of them were very painful! I’m going to be sharing about some of those painful lessons in my upcoming live event one week from today (more about this event below), but here are four of the most painful lessons I’ve learned.

4 Painful Financial Lessons I’ve Learned

  1. Don’t “Go it alone” without seeking financial counsel. Have you ever faced a major financial decision but chose not to seek wisdom from people who’ve “been there – done that” before? I know I have. And I’ve paid stiff penalties that would have been completely avoided if I had only gotten over myself and asked for help. I’ve found that PRIDE is the greatest reason I’ve attempted to “go it alone” without seeking wisdom from others on financial decisions. And we all know where pride leads us …
  2. Listen to my bride when making a major financial decision. Perhaps the only thing worse than losing money on an investment is facing the “I told you so” greeting from one’s beautiful spouse. When my bride has a negative “feeling” about an investment, it is like 5-alarm fire bells going off saying “RUN AWAY FROM THIS DECISION!”
  3. Pray for God’s guidance. If a major financial decision is so hurried that my family and business teams can’t pray about it, then we’ll let the opportunity pass on by. I’ve made some hurried decisions before without praying about them. Some worked out okay. Others were complete and utter flops. I’m completely convinced that prayer is an essential part of financial decision making.
  4. Always have a plan. And a back-up plan. And probably another one. Rarely do plans come together exactly as we mapped them out. New information becomes available, laws and regulations change, other parties in the deal change their minds, etc. I’ve learned that it is best to approach any and all financial decisions like Muhammad Ali approached boxing when he famously said, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can’t hit what the eyes can’t see.”

Those are four of the most painful financial lessons I’ve learned. I wouldn’t trade any of the experiences, however, because they’ve allowed me to become a much more savvy financial manager and leader.

It is my passion to help you win in your money journey too! That’s why I’m offering a free online event just one week from today. The details are below. If you want to make 2016 the best year yet, I encourage you to register now. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

5 Tips To Win With Your Money in 2016

Every single day, I wake up thinking about how to help people prosper with their finances. It’s for this reason that I’m hosting a free online event called “How To Make This Year The BEST YEAR YET” on Thursday, January 14th, at 8:00 PM Eastern Time. I’ll share more details below, but first I want to share a few tips to help take your money to another level in 2016 (I really like #3 the most!).

  1. Prepare a budget each month – and follow it! We all know that a budget is helpful, yet so few people actually take the time to prepare one each month. If you truly want to maximize each and every dollar in 2016, commit to prepare a budget each month before the month begins. Give every dollar a name. Give some. Save some. Invest some. Spend some. It really works!
  2. Focus on paying off your smallest debt. If you’re caught up in a wave of debt, it can seem overwhelming to tackle all of them at once. Instead of putting “a little extra” toward each of your debts, pay the minimum payment for each debt except the smallest one. Use all of your extra money to focus on eliminating that one debt. You will be surprised at how quickly that debt will disappear, and you will gain huge momentum toward liberating your life from unhealthy debt.
  3. Use your tax refund to launch something! Too many people spend their entire tax refund on the most urgent item in front of them – a debt, or maybe even a trip. But what if you decided to use the money to launch something new – a product you’ve created, a new business, or investment opportunity? You could utilize the money to catapult yourself to financial freedom!
  4. Sign up for a financial conference or class.  Financial education is vital to your financial success. Sign up for a real estate investment course, a stock investment conference, or an online financial education course (like our IWBNIN Core Coaching Program)
  5. Set a saving/investing goal and ask someone to hold you accountable.  It is one thing to have a goal. It is quite another to tell someone that goal and invite them to hold you accountable to reach it! For instance, I’ve set a goal to run 400 miles in 2016. I want you to hold me accountable to it. You can do so by being my friend on the Runkeeper app (it’s one of my favorite apps!).

Employ these tips, and it will help springboard you to financial success in 2016!

I am FIRED UP to be teaching the “Thriving: From STRUGGLING To SURPLUS” LIVE online experience Monday, September 21st at 8:00pm EST!

It is my passion to help people win with their money, and I’ve discovered that succeeding with money is more of a journey rather than just a moment. Yet, in a recent financial survey our team conducted, 34.1% of people identified their financial situation as STRUGGLING – meaning they are living paycheck-to-paycheck, struggling to pay all the bills, and it seems like there is never enough.

I’m committed to do something about it! My first step is to offer a FREE online event on Monday, September 21st entitled: “Thriving: From STRUGGLING to SURPLUS.” During this event, I’ll be sharing how to IDENTIFY and TAKE your next financial step.

I want to personally invite you to this event. Space is limited to the first 500 people who register. To reserve your spot, click HERE.

Liberate Your Life From DEBT

I am FIRED UP to be teaching the “Liberate Your Life From DEBT” LIVE online experience today at 12:00 PM EST!

It is my passion to help people win with their money, and I’ve discovered that succeeding with money is more of a journey rather than just a moment. Yet, many people’s money journey is being impeded by this one thing: DEBT!

I remember when I was broke with an average bank account balance of $4.13. I wanted to save money. I wanted to bless my child. I wanted to give money away. I wanted to invest.

There was just one problem: I had a ton of DEBT. I had no financial margin. Every dollar I earned was immediately redirected toward a payment. This made it very challenging to manage our finances. Even worse, I didn’t know how to fix it! However, over the course of just 14 months, I eliminated all my non-house debt. My credit cards, student loans, truck debt, car note, and furniture debt – all of these debts were gone!

My question for you: “Do you have debt?”

If you answered “YES!”, let me ask another question: “What would life be like if you didn’t have to make these debt payments each month?”

I want to help you experience a life without a pile of debt. This is why I’m inviting you to this special LIVE online event that I will be hosting today (Thursday, April 16th) at 12:00 PM EST.

In this online experience, I will be sharing how my family liberate ourselves from a pile of debt and positioned ourselves to live a fully funded life. I’ll also be sharing 8 Ways to Eliminate Debt – Fast! You don’t want to miss it!!

Nothing Happens Until You Decide

I once heard a friend say, “I decided to decide.”

It was amusing when he said it because it was a strange use of the English language. However, he said it with such passion that it forced me to explore what he was really saying. I realized that this was one of the 5 Key Decisions That Helped Me Win With Money.

You see, we’ve all made decisions before where we did not follow through. Here are some common examples:

  • Getting physically fit  We decide to lose weight and get in shape. We purchase the treadmill and a weight set. A gym membership is secured. We purchase all the right workout gear. And then the treadmill and weight bench become just another place to store junk. The gym membership card is never scanned.
  • Reading a book  We decide we are going to read a book that we’ve heard others talking about. We purchase the book. The book arrives in the mail. It sits on the counter, nightstand, or near the toilet. Then it becomes buried under more books we wanted to read. Five years later, we rediscover the book and realize we’ve never read it.
  • Preparing a budget  We wanted to prepare a budget. We knew that having a budget was a good idea. A good budget tool was discovered (like this one). We even took the time to put some numbers into it. We went even further and forced INCOME – OUTGO to equal EXACTLY ZERO. Then we promptly pulled out the credit card and went to Olive Garden – completely violating the budget we just prepared.

“Deciding to decide” was one of the 5 Key Decisions That Helped Me Win With Money. It meant that not only was I making a decision, I was committing to actually follow through with it!

When I finally “decided to decide” to get my finances in order back in December 2002, it completely changed the trajectory of my financial future.

This is why I’m hosting a live online event where I could share all of these decisions in more detail with you right now, at the start of 2015. I really hope you will be able to join me and my bride for this special one-of-a-kind online event (it’s FREE).

5 Key Decisions That Helped Us Win With Money

There have been moments in my life where I’ve made a decision knowing it would change my life forever.

Decisions like:

  • Asking my girlfriend (Jenn) if she would marry me
  • Making an offer on a house
  • Applying for a job
  • Deciding to have children
  • Buying land

However, there have been other moments where I’ve made a decision without truly realizing the future impact it was going to have on me. For example, when I made the decision to begin contributing to my company retirement plan as a new college graduate, I didn’t really grasp the incredible power this was going to have to fund my future plans, hopes, and dreams. When I started my baby girl’s college fund back when she was four years old, I had no idea how this decision would help give wings to her educational dreams.

Perhaps one of the greatest examples was the decision my bride and I made to begin preparing a monthly budget – and choosing to stick to it. We had no idea the impact this would have on our finances – and our life! This one key decision enabled us to accomplish dreams we really never thought possible. Dreams like purchasing a new car with cash, becoming debt-free except for our house, and even paying off our home mortgage!

As I was thinking about these decisions, I thought it would be great to host a live online event where I could share these decisions in more detail with you right now, at the start of 2015. I really hope you will be able to join me and my bride for this special one-of-a-kind online event (it’s FREE).

My Wife Will Be Joining Me For This LIVE Online Event on 1/11/2015

One of the questions I get asked all the time is, “How do I get my spouse to work with me on finances?”

First, let me say these two things:

  • Finances are one of the top causes of marriage fights and divorce.
  • Until both spouses are on the same page financially, it is impossible to maximize your financial potential.

This question is one of the many reasons why I’m hosting a LIVE online event this Sunday. But there is something very different about this online event…my “chief business counsel” will be hosting this event with me too. No, this is not my legal team, but my bride, Jenn! Without her, I would still be broke and would have been the key subject matter of the still unpublished book, “How to be Broke.”

I really hope you will join us for this special event on Sunday, January 11, 2015!

Here are some key items we will be sharing that day:

  • 5 Key Decisions That Helped Us: Jenn and I will be sharing 5 key decisions that helped us win with money. We both believe that these decisions transformed our finances and our marriage.
  • OFFICIAL BOOK RELEASE: We’re CELEBRATING the official release of my newly revised I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. My team is putting the finishing touches on it right now, but I promise it will help you on your money journey.
  • Encouragement for your Money Journey: Jenn and I want to provide encouragement for you. We’ll be sharing parts of our story and also practical “next steps” you can use to win with your money!

Will You Be Joining Me On Sunday Night?

= Upgrade Your Finances =

I am FIRED UP to be teaching a LIVE online event on Sunday night at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Have you ever noticed seasons in your life where you recognized that it was time for an upgrade?

Maybe it was your huge projection TV that weighed 1,700 pounds and was literally a piece of furniture. It could have been the time you were using an overhead projector and saw a computer projector for the very first time. Perhaps it was when you were playing a video game on Atari and saw the first Nintendo game.

SONY DSC

I remember each of these moments. When it happened, my immediate thought was, “I need an upgrade!”

The same is true for the way you manage money. There’s a good chance you are using outdated techniques that are in need of major upgrading! You may be using “huge projection TV” money management techniques that can be greatly helped with an upgrade.

That’s why I’m teaching this special online event LIVE this coming Sunday evening.

Over the past 12 years, my finances have changed dramatically. From having an average bank balance of $4.13 at the end of every month to owning several businesses. From attempting to teach myself financial principles to teaching hundreds of thousands each year.

It is my passion to help people accomplish far more than they ever thought possible with their personal finances. While I travel all over the U.S. and Canada teaching people about money, I’ve never lost my core passion to help people one-on-one – coaching them through their money journey.

When you sign up for the CCP, you are hiring me to be one of your money coaches. (You do have a money coach, right?) I have personally written each experience, and I teach every one of them. When you have a financial question, there’s a good chance I will be personally responding to it.
