Last night was the second week of SIMPLY MONEY for the summer. In just one week, this group of women achieved money success. While it might seem hard to believe, it isn't. The one theme that came from the evening was REALIZATION.
The homework from the week before was to do their "30 Second Financial Check-Up." This is a relatively simple, but POWERFUL, exercise. It did take some women hours to do but the idea is that once you do it, you can keep doing this check-up every month and it will only take you 30 seconds.
While we were going around the room sharing our money progress, I kept hearing:
"I didn't realize I had that much invested"
"I didn't realize how little I knew about my expenses or my income"
"I didn't realize how long it would take me just to find these 4 numbers"
"I didn't realize I earned that much last year"
I keep coming back to the point that it doesn't matter who manages your money, your partner, your spouse, your trusted money manager. It is your money - no matter what. So realize what you have.... It is a great place to start!
