Tiffany Han, host of Raise Your Hand Say Yes, and my former coach, shares her powerful money story with us today.  We talk in depth about how to focus on changing your behavior, how to move forward and what our real limited resources are.  

She is one amazing human!

Today we discuss:

  • Her money story.  How she ignored it until she had communion with money.
  • To welcome money & abundance in her life, she set 2015 as the year to fall in love with money.
  • She had a once a month "Money Love Day."
  • Tiffany made it a positive experience going through the books.
  • How to make the budget match your real life. What is on paper needs to find the system that works for you.
  • Finding someone else's system is a great place to start.  Build on that and make it work for you.
  • Tiffany's parable of the planners.
  • The power of baby steps to make progress.  The needs to wants things.
  • The awareness of the lack of habit makes you uncomfortable.  The shame, emotion & guilt can hold you back.  
  • Self-talk influences every facet of life.
  • Creativity brings blessings, but you don't have to believe that voice in your head.  You choose what you listen to and how to move forward.
  • Say to yourself, "I wonder what would happen if..."  
  • Just get curious.
  • How do you know when you are ready to work with a coach:  Recognize what you need will help you find the right person.
  • Be willing to ask for help & be vulnerable.
  • It's okay to be uncomfortable, it means you're making progress.
  • Decide how you want to spend your money and get really deliberate.
  • Money, Time & Energy: these are the available resources.
  • Start today.  Do something NOW.  Anything you can do now will make your life better down the road.
  • "A year ago you'll wish you started today."
  • It's not scary.  It's just numbers.
  • You get to decide who has the power. 
  • It's uncomfortable?  So what.  Move on.
  • Whatever it is, do that.  Those things that make you feel empowered will transcend into other areas of your life.

"Drive Your MoneyBus," a phrase I say regularly.  

  • You were given a MoneyBus as an adult.  No one can drive that bus but you.
  • Your MoneyBus may look different than others.  It doesn't matter, you are the one driving.
  • You have to study and practice to get an actual driver's license, but it's not like for money.  
  • Money matters, but it's only part of the equation.  A life that hase
  • The MoneyBus is a powerful piece of machinery.  It's always moving either forward or backward.  You have to control it. 
  • The gas that powers this engine is your income.  Use it wisely.  Make smart decisions.  Determine wants/needs.This gives you more to use.
  • You need a map or GPS, your budget.  This is your plan to get you from this paycheck to the next.  
  • If the conditions change, you stop, make adjustments and you "recalculate" the plan.
  • Driving the MoneyBus is a big responsibility.  It can take you directly to the destination or run straight in the gutter.
  • Your MoneyBus doesn't look like others.  Start with where you are, with the size of the vehicle you have and move forward.
  • That small vehicle can transform into a sedan.  You have more space to work with and can live more comfortably.
  • You have even more power at your fingertips.  
  • The MoneyBus is loaded.  You are able to help others on their journey as you continue on your journey.
  • You can find even more opportunities to enrich lives with your MoneyBus!
  • So go on, now.  Drive Your MoneyBus!

 Make 2016 your Enriched Year!  

 "How you think matters."  When you are talking to yourself, you make all the difference in your life.

  • This podcast is part personal journal of my ups and downs as we are paying off all of our debt and getting our finances completely in order; and, in big part, it is learning from those who have been successful with money.  We talk to money experts and regular Joes that have made significant strides with their financial situations. 
  • Imagine a pie chart of life, all the important things in your life are in there.  Money is like an oval that touches every aspect of that pie chart.  When your finances are in order it directly impacts other parts of your life. Talk about Money
  • What you are learning from money management strategies?
  • Christmas 2013, we made the goal to pay of $5,000 of credit card debt in 2014.
  • We are a single income family household and we have been able to:
    • Learn how to set up our own budget
    • We made a budget, worked through trial & error.  And the fights.  Oooh, the fights... (we've talked about those fights on this episode.)
    • I was on a "shopping detox" and didn't even realize it.
    • We held each other accountable even on the tough days and paid off $25,000 of debt in 2014.
    • We traveled, visited family, and were able to still pay off another $15,000 of debt in 2015.
  • An additional phase of Thinking Enriched in my personal life, weight loss and tracking my calories, steps and workouts.
  • Thinking about the goal is the first step.  Getting off your hiney is the other part of the equation to achieve any goal.
  • Monthly challenges are part of listening in to Think Enriched.
  • January's Challenge is the Pantry Challenge. It's basically 30 days to help you: avoid waste in the kitchen; ensure you are eating healthy well-balanced meals; and clearly, save money. The basic steps are:
    • Make an inventory of your pantry, freezer, and dry goods that you have stocked up throughout the years.
    • Plan meals around these items so to eat up some of that food and avoid waste or continuous shopping of items you or your family doesn't eat much.
    • Spend as little as possible at the grocery store for the time frame allotted (the month of January.)
  • Share your Friday Wins in the Crew. 
  • When you write down your goal, you have your mind in order and focused on achieving it.  When you get to work on that goal, you exercise the discipline to make it possible.  Having both parts of this equation makes you unstoppable!
  • Goals are like dominoes.  Set and achieve one and it will roll you right on to the next.  And the next.
  • That's what Think Enriched is all about.  Will you join me on this journey?
