    Goal Setting in Quarters

    Getting everything you want to achieve, done, can be overwhelming. I often take on more than I can achieve and end up getting more frustrated. This year, I’ve switching things up a little and I think it’s working. I thought I’d share it with you just in case you want to give it a try. This can work for just about any goal, be it making money, saving money or just one goal, like exercising more. I’ve started to divide goals by quarters. 1st quarter (Jan, Feb, March), etc. I use an overall statement at the top of the page, sort of like the ones you use in a business…

    Friday and April Round Up-What’s Ahead in May?

    t’s the last day in April. Can you believe how quickly the month flew by? Did you get everything on your to do list done? I’m way behind on mine and one of the reasons for lack of posts here at BSG. I’m in the planning stages of a money mindset course I want to create and it’s taking longer than I thought. If you didn’t see my post about the change in e-mails, a reminder that if you signed up Feedburner which would have been between 2005-2013, that platform is going away. I’m trying to import everyone on the list to the new Mailchimp one but I think I…

    Hold Yourself Accountable

    Last week we focused on staying motivated and finding an accountability partner. In today’s post, I’d like to tell you about something I’ve been doing to hold myself accountable. Yes, I’ve had accountability partners in the past. It’s my preferable way to go but sometimes it takes time finding one that’s a great match. I tried this alternative way last year, and so far, so good. At the beginning of each week, I take a sheet of paper and write down what I want to achieve in the next five days. I leave space between each one…I’ll tell you why in a minute. Fold the paper in half or thirds…

    Saving Money in 2021

    What steps did you take in 2020 to save money? As we approach the end of the year, now is a great time to take a look back and see how well you did with sticking with a budget. Didn’t have one, or had one and didn’t stay with it? My motto is if you fail the first time, the great thing is there’s always tomorrow and another chance. Here are some things to think about in 2021 Getting Rid of Stuff You Don’t Use I’m not talking about the treadmill you use once in a blue moon…although you could sell it and stash the money away for emergencies. I’m…

    Monday Motivation-Shift Your Energy

    Sometimes things are out of our control. People’s attitudes and bias, the people that tell us it can’t be done. I’ve found rather than waste my energy on trying to change them, I’ve gone ahead and put my focus into living my dream. It’s your life, your energy, your dream, use it wisely.

    Monday Motiviaton-Opportunity is Everywhere

    Sometimes we don’t take that first step because we’re scared. Scared of failing, scared of making a mistake, scared of what others might think if we get it all wrong. This week be brave enough to take that first step.

    Friday Ramblings-New Month, New Goals

    Did you meet all your goals for April? These are disruptive, strange times for most of us, and setting goals and meeting them is often the last thing you think about. Or maybe it’s the first thing. I’ve been getting e-mails from lots of people who want to start their own business now that their jobs are no more. People who want more of solid financial base to build upon for times just like these. I also got e-mails from people who have been reading BSG since day one when I offered money saving tips. If you’re new here, check out the archives and you’ll find lots of articles about…
