It’s Freedom Time!

EF_ItsFreedomTime_Banner

In my last post, It Takes Work I told you how imperative it is that you never stop learning. I even gave you some homework, asking you to begin educating yourselves through reading and research. If you’re not sure where to begin, start with the reading resources on my website. Kudos to those of you who took an interest and made a giant step in the journey towards your own financial epiphany. For those of you who didn’t, I ask, without condemnation or judgment, “why not?”

What is the real reason you didn’t push yourself to expand your economic knowledge base? What kept you from taking a few moments out of the day to learn something new? Why would you not want to educate yourself on the belief systems that guide you? After all, it is YOUR money and YOUR present and future security we are talking about. Isn’t that worthy of your time?

FACT: You burn more calories reading a book than watching TV. Who doesn’t want to burn more calories, let alone exercise the muscle that is your brain? Wisdom requires action, and often times those actions counter one’s fleshly desires.

If you are not seeking insight/knowledge into your money, and I don’t mean reading “investment books,” I am talking about how to FRAME YOUR MIND AROUND THE TOPIC OF DOLLARS AND CENTS and the realities and challenges we face as hard working citizens, who is going to do it for you?

In his book ECONOMICS IN ONE LESSON, Henry Hazlitt tells us that

“economics is haunted by more fallacies than any other study known to man because the inherent difficulties of the subject…are multiplied a thousand-fold by…the special pleading of selfish interests. While every group has certain economic interests identical with those of all groups, every group has also…interests antagonistic to those of all other groups.”  (p.15)

Since the rise of the welfare state as initiated by FDR and Keynesian philosophy, we have been brainwashed into thinking that we can spend our way to success. We believe LIFESTYLE is wealth when most people would NOT be able to maintain their lifestyle at the same level for more than a month or two if someone lost their job and most people certainly will not be able to maintain their lifestyle if and when they ever seek “retirement.” 

Therefore, I beseech you, start to question that which you hold as “truth” – challenge what you already believe, and never stop!

The truth is not as scary as most people think. Stepping outside of one’s comfort zone and walking into the unknown is quite exhilarating once you get past the fear of it. But heed my advice, arm yourself with wisdom. Proverbs 4:6 tells us to not forsake wisdom and she will protect us, love her and she will watch over us.

Listen, clinging onto false realities and beliefs does not serve you or anyone else. Turning a blind eye only keeps you confined to what you have now, blocking the way to your best life possible. Jesus told his disciples that the truth would set them free. Imagine that for a moment - what does freedom mean to you? Whether it is personal, financial or anything in between, my wish for you is to experience the jubilation of true freedom. Keep reading. Keep pursuing knowledge. Keep growing.

To your success,

Client Spotlight: Andrea Ferguson

Andrea Ferguson, Owner, 3:20 Designs Client Spotlight Andrea Ferguson

www.320designs.com / info@320designs.com / 972-951-4788

I was introduced to 3:20 Designs owner, Andrea Ferguson, when my client Patrick Dougher realized I wanted to do more with the TV interviews he had conducted with me. I needed overall marketing and branding consultation. I needed a “Marketing Director.” ….. I needed someone to do it!

With graphic design as her foundation, Andrea is really in the business of taking clients through the branding process so they can launch, maintain and grow their marketing campaign. The tangible outcomes of the custom tailored packages she creates with each client might include: logo creation, website design, online and print media, newsletters, pamphlets, blogs, social media, etc. From print media to online media-marketing, Andrea helps a client establish or re-establish their identity and brand. The entrepreneur is her target client although corporations continue to seek her expertise as well. As Andrea states, “My best and highest use is the 1on1 attention I can give to an entrepreneur.”

CS_AndreaFerguson320DesignsWhat truly sets Andrea apart is not just her attentiveness to a client’s needs, it is the fact that she surrenders her talents to a Higher Power so that His brilliance, His excellence may work through her. She named her company in recognition of the truth that is found in Ephesians 3:20 and she states, “When I allow God to work through me in this creative process, He delivers exceedingly more than I could. I am just the vessel.”

While it is an honor for me to serve Andrea as her Personal Economic Advisor, I am so much more blessed that she has helped me create a visual representation of what God is doing through me and Epiphany Financial. Andrea has given Epiphany Financial a way to present myself to the world and I know she can do the same for you.

Please contact Andrea. I know you will be blessed be the experience  no matter what the outcome!

To your success,

Forget Thin. I Want To Be Hot!

Have you ever checked out peoples’ butts? I mean, just sat there and watched as people walked by and checked them out; all the saggy EF - Forget Thinbutts, the skin tight jeans over non-existent butts, the designer jeans reshaping the overly round butts, and every once and a great while you see a really nice ass. It’s rare isn’t it?

Heck, everyone has some semblance of flesh on their backside. But for 60% of the population their butt is more bulbous than bodacious. The minority that might be considered “thin” simply have no butt of noticeable significance.

A truly nice ass; a butt worth admiring; a butt I would want – now that is rare.

Personally, I don’t accept just average. I don’t want to just be “thin.” While thin is nice, and I am glad the Lord continues to bless me with a body that has not expanded too far and wide, I simply do not want to be just thin – I want to be HOT!

Don’t you? If you could achieve HOT by changing a few things in your daily routine, maybe not even too much, and yet attain the status of HOT, wouldn’t you want to know those few necessary things? Of course, if I told you that your HOT status may not come within a few months but it may even take a year or two, wouldn’t it still be worth it if, again, I did not impact your overall lifestyle in too dramatic of a fashion?

I can. I know how to guarantee you will be HOT!

But, alas, I am not a personal fitness coach. I am a personal wealth coach and if you are okay with having “enough,” if you are fine with doing “okay,” then I am not the trainer for you.

However, if you want to be HOT when it comes to having your money work for you, I can get you beyond “enough” and “okay” and I can help you get MORE!

Heck, who wants to be just thin when you can be HOT!
