So your resolutions are a few days old, and if you’re still feeling good about them – great!
Instead of just making dry resolutions about being “better with money” this year, think differently.
Think of how much time, effort (and money) goes into growing your career. You train for it, dress for it, obsess on weekends about it… the result is that (1) you get paid and (2) if you do well you get paid more.
But then what?
The way we prioritize what happens with our money after we earn it is rarely discussed. And given half the households in the US have significant credit card debt – it seems there really not enough focus on personal financial management either at work or school.
If you’re juggling payments or living paycheck to paycheck – how can you be expected to be the best version of yourself at work? Money is one of the biggest sources of stress, yet most people are not ‘taught’ how to make the most of their money, and it’s rarely acknowledged within the work environment.
But amazing things happen when you’re financially stable and less afraid of losing your job and paycheck. You can speak up instead of staying quiet, take risks instead of playing it safe, and most importantly – focus on the task at hand versus worrying about the bills.
Consider this: healthier money muscles = less stress = more ability to take risks and bring your ‘whole self’ to work = better work performance & career opportunities.
Every day we are inspired by our clients willingness to learn something new, make hard decisions, and most importantly – realize a month later that the steps that they thought were giant, were actually manageable and not that difficult after all.
