As you may know, the Dow Jones dropped more than 1,000 points last week.
This had Wall Street running like headless chickens.
Should we panic? Are we close to the next big crash?
However, what does that mean? Why should we care if we don't invest in the market?
Moreover, if we do, with more reasons we should continue reading this.
Well, to clarify, this is the 2nd time this year that the market dropped over 1000 points. It happened back in February.
The reality is that when the market goes up in a straight line, there has to be a time of correction.
The market goes up steadily and slowly, but the corrections can happen erratically and rapidly.
This is when financial education becomes essential.
Because we want to make money and grow our money, but for sure we do NOT want to lose it.
The problem is that there is so much information out there that we get all confused about what is right and what it is not.
And at the same time, there is such a lack of information
However, there is...
I want to share with you a straightforward process to manifest and attract anything you want in your life, especially money.
It is such a simple process that most times we take them for granted. But it works for me and works for a lot of people. So I dare you to try it!
Start with an amount that is a little stretch but at the same time something that is realistic to achieve.
For example: If you are making 5,000 dollars a month, you probably might want to ask for 7,000 to 10,000 dollars.
So you can either increase a little what you want or double what you are already making. You can use this formula for any amount of money. (ex: $100,000 to $1,000,000)
Who do you think is responsible for teaching your kids about money?
It is funny that as parents we teach our kids a lot of skills, but we fail to show them something as essential as managing money.
Today I am going to share with you three things that you can do to help your kids understand the concepts of Money.
Children start deciding about money as early as three years old. If you don’t think so, ask yourself, who chose the cereal or the juice at the grocery store.
Typically, I suggest to give them a week allowance base on their age.
If your child is 7, then $7, 6, $6, 5, $5 and so forth.
This will give them a sense of reality and teach them good habits for then on.
One thing that can make us feel overwhelmed, stressed and broke is clutter.
A lot of people don't think about this, but there is a huge correlation between how your life runs and clutter.
When you are surrounded by clutter, your productivity will decrease. You can miss bill payments and offers. You could lose valuable things.
It is time for Spring Cleaning and it is perfect to do some decluttering in your life. I am going to be sharing with you, what is the best way to declutter in order to attract more abundance in your life.
When you are surrounded by clutter in your home, your car, and your work area, you will spend more money.
You also going to lose track of things and your financial debt will increase. This will put you in a vicious cycle of confusion, chaos, and stress.
Test your surroundings, look around every single area of your house, your car and workspace and ask yourself, what do you see?
Open your drawers,...

Not Doing Research
Before going into business, you have to do your research. Is your product needed in your current market? Do I know who is your ideal audience or client? Who is your competition? Trust me, you do have one.
Make sure to do your research prior to spending a cent on anything else. What is the point to start a business where no one needs your product? Create momentum for your product with your potential clients even prior to spending anything.
Not Having a...
A lot of times we say that we don't have any money. In my experience with my clients, the problem is not that they don't have the money, but more of where they are spending their money.
What are your priorities? Where do you rather spend your money?
If you have a job and you don't have money to invest for your future, most likely is due to poor money management. Do you even know where is your money going? Are you tracking your money? Where are your priorities?
I see a lot of people that as soon as they receive their money, instead of paying themselves first, they pay off their debt. Others, just have no control over the money. As soon as they get it, they spend it in fun or just going to bars and clubs or eating out all the time.
Unfortunately, a lot of people are just living day by day, pay check to pay check and that is very concerning. A lot of people are not living at their full potential and...
It is being said that Baby-Boomers rather being dead than broke. This is their #1 fear.
According to a survey made by Allianz; nearly two-thirds of baby boomers or 63% fear running out of money in retirement more than death.
Because of this, they are seeing saving for retirement as a necessity, like food and shelter.
These days people are living longer. We have been able to find a way to extend our lifespan, however, we have not been able to find a way to expand our profits.
After so many Baby-Boomers lost part or their whole retirement during the market downturn. They are spreading the word that saving for retirement is a big deal. Again, they feared to be broke more than death.
As they approach retirement, some realize that they just cannot retire. Even employers are realizing that the 65-year-old mark for retirement is no longer realistic. Most employers know that people might...
One of the biggest worries here in the US is money.
USA Today reveals something alarming when it comes to debt in the US and quote:
"The average American household carries $137,063 in debt, according to the Federal Reserve's latest numbers."
"Yet the U.S. Census Bureau reports that the median household income was just $59,039 last year, suggesting that many Americans are living beyond their means."
Also, the average student loan is about $50,626.00, putting Millenials in debt right out of college.
What all of these means to us?
This means that the cost of living is higher than our income.
What can we do to change this?
Basically, we need to get educated about money.
It is time to put our money where financial institutions put their money and not put it in the financial institutions.
We also need to change our perception when it comes to money and when it comes to debt.
We need to eliminate our limiting beliefs when it comes to money.
We need to get educated on the...
The number one reason couples split up and ended in divorce is Money.
One reason is that they have a different point of views on how to manage the finances. The other reason is that they both have weak money habits and cannot handle it correctly.
The lack of communication in a lot of couples could create more debt in the household. Why? Because where there is not a good communication, it creates a void. And most likely, shopping, things will be filling up the emotional gap.
Are there any secrets when it comes to finances within your household? Sometimes one of the spouses doesn't know what the other is either spending or saving. A lot of times, one of them don't know what the other's income is.
