Today I decided I wanted to take a peek at my finances and goals and see what I need to be focusing on before the end of the month. Well, so far things are looking okay. I am a little over half way to my financial goal and I have also cross off a lot of other things on my goal list. These next ten days are going to be very busy for me and I am looking forward to seeing what I am able to achieve in this short amount of time.
How I Stay Inspired To Work from Home
When first starting to work from home I was scammed averaged about $500 a month and experienced so many things during the very first month that I should have given up. However, I keep pushing and that $500 a month made its way to being $5000 a month and has gone up and down in between the years. So, whenever I find myself becoming discouraged I just think back to how far I have come in a short amount of time. Not to mention the fact that there is also the fact that bills have to be paid as well.
Time and Money Management
Yesterday I ran across a post from Carol Tice (yes she is my idol and inspiration to push myself to the max) that discussed money management. If you missed it you can check it out here. She discussed a lot of great points and I was able to take a few things from it that can help me advance farther even though some points I do not agree with. For example, saving more and getting paid faster are good points. I save but I could be saving more. Also, there have been times when I have forgotten to invoice clients (yes I am literally that busy to the point that I sometimes forget about invoices). However, paying bills slower is something that I cannot change. I prefer to have my bills paid in advance at least a month ahead. That way ,if I do have a bad month, I don’t have to worry about pulling my hair out about how I am going to pay rent or any other bills.
