So proud to call Ilhan Omar one of Minnesota’s own! Fellow Minnesotans: remember to vote in the primary on Tuesday! Here’s everything you need to know about the candidates and races.
How was your week, friends? I crossed ‘hammock camping’ off my New Things List and was surprised to discover I liked it! It is a million times easier and more fun than tent camping.
I also opened my super-affordable ($35!) super effective class Bank Boost on Wednesday. In the last three months, Bank Boost students have collectively added more than $45,000 to their bank accounts! Class starts tomorrow, so if you’re keen to join us, now is the time!
That’s a great thing to hear on a Monday morning, right? When you’re 10 minutes into an hour-long walk with a friend?
I put on my Polite Midwestern I Won’t Be Offended Face and prepare for my friend to say something vaguely offensive.
“I really didn’t think it would work. I’ve read tons of books on this stuff. I’ve downloaded, like, five different apps. But this worked when nothing else did.”
My friend is talking about my courseBank Boost (shameless plug! It opened for enrollment yesterday!)
I’m flattered and blushy and I tell her so. I totally believe in the stuff we talk about inBank Boost. It is full of great, insightful information and we approach money in a fun, doable, way!
There are other differences. The stuff my friend tried that hadn’t worked for her? The books and apps? They were solo endeavors. She had no support, no accountability, nobody to bounce ideas off of.
Maybe if she’d had that, those other things would have worked for her.
And if my friend knew this about herself – that she needs support + accountability to get where she wants to go – she’d be able to use that knowledge in every area of her life.
If she wanted to change careers, eat differently, train for a marathon, buy a home, sell everything and travel the world … she’d make sure she had support and accountability to do those things. She’d stop buying books she doesn’t read, self-paced courses she doesn’t complete, and apps that take up space on her phone. She’d think about what has worked for her in the past and do more of it if she wants to find success in her future. So I guess the good news is: If something has worked for you in the past, it’ll probably work again for you in the future! And the bad news is: If something didn’t work for you in the past, it probably won’t magically start working now.
What’d you get up to this week, friends? I spent some time on Lake of The Isles (which I’d never done, despite living in Minneapolis for eight years), did some one-on-one coaching with a long-time client, and today we’re hosting a mini family reunion. Here’s hoping everyone impressed by our snowcone maker!
I did not plan on leading anyone towards an epiphany. I mean, I knew what I was teaching people was helpful and useful. I knew that my course would help people bring in a lot of extra money, pay off debt, etc. etc. etc. But I didn’t expect one tiny suggestion – something I thought was so-obvious-it’s-barely-worth-mentioning – to change everything for my students. What did I tell my Bank Boost students to do? I told them to schedule fun into their week.
