I’ve been asked this question many times since I began this business.
I like to address this question with an analogy. Imagine that you are broke and your car isn’t running for some reason. You aren’t a skilled mechanic and the problem is more difficult than a typical maintenance item like replacing the battery. You have to be able to afford to pay a mechanic to fix your car so that you can go to a job, look for a job, or use your car to run your business. One way or another your car is the vehicle that will allow you to make money in order for you to pay the mechanic to fix the car.
Financial coaching works the same way. Both the car and your personal finances are necessities that must be maintained in order for you to get ahead financially. Without either vehicle running properly, you are broke and will probably stay there until you make the decision to make a change.
However, for most people being broke is a temporary situation. Being broke or being wealthy is based upon a culmination of decisions that we make in life. Sir Richard Francis Burton said,
“Broke is a temporary condition, poor is a state of mind.”
Today, make the decision to no longer be broke and to learn how to win with money. Your education is the vehicle that will take you on the road to building sustainable long-term wealth.
