This post is Part 2 in the Smarter Work Money series.
This is a quick read as it’s really a continuation of last week’s article.
In the last post I told you all about how looking at money with abundance can dramatically shift just how much money you make.
Over the next few articles I’m going to share with you some ways trainers are adding revenue to their group fitness business but before I jump into ways to make money, I wanted to share a little tip for spending money.
Now, I’m not saying that you should spend all your money and never have any assets or savings (by the way I’m not a financial adviser so you should really do your own homework), this tip is just designed to help you shift the way you look at money in your life.
So, here’s what you do, whenever you are spending money, be it on a cup of coffee or getting bracers for your child, pause for a moment and picture in your mind ‘After it leaves me, where is this money going to?’
Who is being supported by my money? Is it one person? It might be hundreds. How will it help them? What impact will it have?
This has an added bonus of making you that much more aware of what you are spending your money on too. Sure it might seem like a good idea to shop at the local giant chain supermarket, but when you really think about where your money (and energy) is going, wouldn’t you rather support that locally owned grocery store and the staff that work there?
And as another added bonus, after you do this for a while this will shift how you ask others for money. When you know that the money that is coming through you is going to causes you care about (including supporting your family) it helps relax you.
This makes you less desperate when asking for money as you know it’s going to come back around to you.
This is a pretty out there concept I know, it’s taken me some time to wrap my head around it. If this doesn’t sit with you, that’s OK, don’t force it. Rest assured that the next few of posts on making money are going be much more strategic and less woo woo.
