|If you begin to get honest about your financial decision-making history and maybe even your current situation; you will find the emotion fear dominates in many aspects. Allow me to introduce a positive outlook and some specific actions you can take right now to adjust that emotional response to money. I call them the basic “Money Manners”:|
1. Identify your Passion: Review your bookshelf, watch your purchasing patterns, know what is happening emotionally and financially when you spend and stay on top of it.
2. Acknowledge the Mistakes: If you can pay off any debt, now is the time to do it. Dealing with a recession is hard enough, but if you have a boatload of debt on top of that your stress level will go through the roof and you might not be able to pay it a few months down the line. Pay cash for anything you need, if you don’t have the cash, ask yourself if you really NEED it, or do you just WANT it? Narrow down your credit card possession to one, cancel all others and cut them up.
3. Lavish Lifestyle on Less: Seems simple, but do you need all the bells and whistles you have on your business or home phone or even your cell phone? Do you need to get Starbucks twice a day? Can you bring your lunch? Can you carpool to work? Can you get more out of a pack of ground beef by cooking it in another way? Challenge yourself to do more with less.
4. Invest in your financial education: Continue to educate yourself, attend seminars, free online webinars, read books and magazines about healthy financial characteristics, remain up to date on what is happening in your finances. Attend a Money Manners workshop register here
