It’s been over two weeks since the vibrant eWomenNetwork conference for women business owners, and I am still processing the brilliant strategies and insights I got from the various speakers covering a wealth of topics that every woman could appreciate.
Today I want to write about insights from Lisa Sasevich, the amazing entrepreneur who grew her business to multiple 7 figures while raising two young children and supporting her husband through medical school.
Do I have your attention now? I think this is a woman we can learn from. And since I help women increase their financial skills, I am going to tie this into your financial goals.
Do things before you are ready-How long have you been putting off responsibilities that you know would make a difference in reaching your financial goals? Is it being more proactive with your wealth management, starting that side business to add an additional streams of income, or taking a course to improve your financial savvy?
What I have learned is that women are never ready; our plates are always full. Focus on what matters and get started creating the financial life you want today.
Be open to surprising yourself-What if you took a course about investing your money and became quite skilled at it? What if you loved it so much that you expanded your knowledge and decided to spend an hour or two a week capturing profits from simple market trends to add to your income stream? Wow!
What if you decided to create a course on a topic you are knowledgeable and passionate about, you had lots of customers, and thereby, generate more income?
Be open to the fact that you may just surprise yourself! How fun would that be?
A good mentor refers you back to yourself-Waiting for someone to just take over your money that will lead you right to your financial goals? First, you have to learn how to evaluate and hire the right financial professionals.
Not ready to work with a financial professional? Then you’ll want to learn a few basics to manage your money with success.
The bottom line is that it is your money, and only you know what you want your money to do for you. (I call this your money reasons in my upcoming financial book for women, Earn Grow Give.) No one cares about your money as much as you do; I don’t tell the women I work with where or how to invest, I teach them skills that enable them to create their own financial security and independence.
These are three of my favorite Lisa Sasevich tips. Do any of them resonate with you? If so, what are you waiting for? Embrace your financial journey today. And remember: be open to surprising yourself.
