Great advice!

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got in my life was from my Dad.

I wouldn’t say it necessarily made me happy...


You cannot manage what you cannot see. The biggest obstacle to improving our Life Money circumstance is not clearly seeing our situation. This is often the result of fear or false optimism. “If I just don’t look at it, it will all go away.” Right?

Try another way. Be courageous. Take a deep breath and open your eyes.

Have a kitchen table summit. Light a candle, pour yourself a glass of wine or your favorite relaxing beverage and spread out all your bills on the table. The important thing is to reduce the stress level in whatever way you can.

Then on a clean sheet of paper list the name of the creditor, the total balance owed, the monthly payment due and the interest rate. No matter how bad this may look it can and will get better now that you are seeing it clearly and can begin to develop an effective plan of action. As with all of life the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. This is your first step. Do this and you will be on your way to Life Money Mastery and Freedom. We salute you! #LifeMoneyCenter
