Several people have mentioned lately that this show is motivational with money strategies, things that they have found inspiring, and great stories...but it won't work for them.

To them I say, "Say Whaaaaaat?"  Kind of reminds me of the "It's Not About the Nail" video.  Remember that one?

All of these financial strategies will never change.  Until you change.

Here's the thing: you probably don't need more money. What?  What did she just say? You just need to get organized.  You need to know where you are today and how you'll be doing tomorrow.

No one can do this for you.

The MoneyBus Coaching program to help you do that.  We will look deeply at where you are, what is missing, and what are the next few steps that you can take to drive your MoneyBus.

We can talk about it all you want.  But nothing is going to change, until you do. 

Isn't it finally time?  Go to ThinkEnriched.com/Money-Bus to sign up today!

Finding a good financial advisor is important.  Finding the right one for you can be extremely beneficial.  Consider:

  • Who your friends' financial advisor is (similar life experience gives you knowledge.)
  • Find out if the advisor if fee-based (paid for the advice they give) or commission based (paid for the products they sell.)
  • Which compliance standards they follow Fiduciary Standards or Suitability Standards.
  • Follow your gut instinct if this should be the advisor that is right for you.

Also, let's talk!  I want to connect with you personally!

  • Wednesday, Sept 9th, 6pm, Pacific (9pm, Eastern)
  • Go to Blab.im look for Amy Robles, Money Management
