Tip: Money Falls From the Sky

Maybe this
is a simple tip…
But it makes
money seem to fall out of thin air.
I
discovered it during my first and ONLY job ever.
Although it
was a “work from home” research programming role, my boss wanted me to relocate
from my hometown Auckland, to Nelson.
A shitty
little, cold town of 50,000 people.
I wouldn’t
be getting a salary until the end of my first month.
The
relocation was expensive. And I was broke.
Somehow, I
got the balls to ask my boss for an advance on my salary and he agreed to pay
me half.
$2,000.
Hooray?
Not really.
It meant there would be TWO lean months ahead.
Still, I survived
without any more loans. And I actually saved quite a bit.
First thing,
I started an Excel spreadsheet.
I listed in
it all the outgoing money which I knew for SURE was leaving my account by the end
of the month, regardless of date or frequency.
And I
subtracted all future expenses from the current balance of my bank account.
Then I ignored
my bank statement completely.
Instead, I
tracked every cent spent in my spreadsheet.
And when I wanted
to know how much money I had left, I only referred to the balance on the
spreadsheet.
Why?
Because it creates a useful illusion–that i have much less money than i CURRENTLY do.
By the third
month, I was debt-free and comfortable.
So
comfortable, that I invited my little brother for a 3 week road-trip!
In fact,
for the rest of that year, I had so much money I didn’t even know how to
spend it. (Don’t forget, I was a student not long before).
A clever
strategy.
Especially
when you’re in a business.
One of the
most annoying struggles you’ll experience when you’re kickstarting your business, is that
you’ll have days when you earn a LOT of money…
Followed by
weeks, sometimes months of having NONE. (I once went an entire year without
earning and never ran out of money, because of this one idea).
What most
people do in this situation is…
Even though their expenses are rather predictable…and always
inevitable…
…When money
first hits their account, they live like they own it ALL.
Reality is,
most in-coming money is already spent–just hasn’t left your account YET.
When your
mortgage is due, or your car lease needs to be renewed, or your credit card
bill hits the mail…the money comes out. But it doesn’t change the fact that you wouldn’t be earning any new money until after these bills are paid.
Look,
living expenses, beyond your routine bills, are unpredictable and potentially endless.
But they
are the only expense you can control.
And you’d be surprised what you can live without, if you are more realistic about how little of your money you really own.
Wouldn’t you rather live like you only have $200, while in reality having an account FULL of money…than
to ACTUALLY only have $200 to your name?
If there is
a real emergency, you don’t have to beg in the street, borrow from the in-laws,
or get evicted.
And you
improve your financial situation with every passing month, instead of worsening
it with debt.
Anyway…
I recommend
this strategy too for building up your advertising budget.
Which is
why in my Traffic KickStart training, I included a Traffic Calculator.
Its job
is to forecast your advertising expense, your revenue, and your profit over the
next 12 months.
You simply
fill out your current numbers, and it will tell you what your future looks like
if you keep going at the same rate.
It gives
you both a “best case” and a “worst case” scenario, so you can plan for both.
And there’s
a free video tutorial with the tool which tells you how to respond to the
information you get. So you can create the “best case” scenario for your
business.
