"Abundance is about being rich with or without money." -Suze Orman
Here are some conversations I had this week.
My FIL sent me an email telling me I needed to buy the new Maserati SUV. Actually this is not the first time he has said this. I shake my head laughing at him but really, he's creating my "new normal" for me so I am not laughing too hard. He followed up with a phone call to tell me "as a woman with my stature, I should really get rid of the spaceship I have now and buy this." #lovehim
He then called me later in the week to also tell me that the Market is really high right now and that we need to add Bonds to our portfolio. It's a good time to buy them. He told me 80% of my money should be in the aggressive stocks like him and 20% in safe bonds. Bonds that you can buy cheaply now. #allaboutsharing
I was talking with my daughter's girl scout troop leader about some upcoming activities and how I could help out. She also told me her company was hiring a VP of Marketing. I should start to consult with them and also think about applying for the position if I would consider taking a J.O.B. again. #hmmm
I worked out a launch plan with a client of mine. We talked about what was needed while I was driving in the car. You know during one of those 2 1/2 hour a day drives... Then we followed up in writing so we didn't forget. #cantwait
I worked with my designer can't wait to share!! #seriouslyimpumped
And I am putting the final pieces to our YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB project. We want you to not only understand why this is FACT but we want you to FEEL great too! #moreonthatonesoon
There is so much fun in the day. And then I went to bed and closed my eyes to get rid of all the brain stimulation I can! #problemswithhavingaconcussion
Thing is the most unexpected things happen each and everyday. Being supppperexcited about the products you create. Being supppper excited about your client's new product. Being suppper excited about the car of your future. It's an abundant life without even trying!
What is coming at you? What are you excited about?
LEAD. Lovelies. Lead.
--> UPS drivers don't turn left and because of it, they save 10 million gallons of gasoline each year. Say what? YES! They take avoid getting caught in left turn traffic and save. What's interesting is they wanted to test out against the norm. They wanted to test what worked for them despite what the norm is.
--> “The more important it is to meet your (sales) numbers the more important it is to stop concentrating on your numbers and start concentrating on the client’s numbers.” -Mahan Khalsa The sales commission trend is on it's way out. Customers need to be the sales focus, not the sales itself. So what's the new KPI? How well your customers are doing.
--> What happens when you use the word Freedom instead of money? “Should I put some freedom into my 401(k) so I have some freedom when I get older?”
--> GIVE. ME. ONE. I. want. one.
Quick side note from Ashleigh. Here are my most favorite tools ever.
- For audio motivation - Relentless by Tim Grover. I listen to him as I was in the mornings. My walk always becomes a power walk after listening.
- To focus during the day I love to focus@will. They say music helps you focus and for me it surely does. I blare the classical music. I am not sure how many people my age choose that over techno but either way I love it.
- Rosemarie Groner (from the Busy Budgeter) is a friend and I just LOVE how much she gives everything away. She tells you and anyone she can her detailed way to making money! Start with her Pinterest Strategy Guide that is worth every penny. Not. going. to. lie
LAST BUT NOT LEAST.
--> "My work is an action of gratitude." Helloooo don't you just love that! YES! This week's podcast I talked with the unbelievably amazing Jasmine Star. We talked business, structure, hustle. We talked about the work she's doing today and how it started as her being a photographer even before she owned a camera! You have to listen in!
