Today I was talking to someone on the phone and realized ONCE AGAIN, how very important it is to make small, everyday choices wisely. This is extremely important when running a small business.
A lot of times it’s so easy to say,” I don’t have the money.”
When we really should say, “I had the money, but I spent it on sodas and a pair of new heels.”
It all comes down to small, everyday choices. Eating out is pretty high on my radar. We all do it. It’s sad how society tells us that every social event has to be centered around food. (but that’s a different topic for a different day! LOL ) Everyone says America’s economy is in such bad shape… but you can’t see that from the 2 hour wait EVERY weekend at most of the restaurants in our neighborhoods… oh! and not the $1 menu restaurants either!!!!!!!
Even if you go out, do you NEED that $2.25 soda? and if you trade water for even 1 of your weekly meals eaten out… that’s $117 (before taxes & tip!) Right there we’ve paid for our $10/month Scentsy website fees for the YEAR. And sodas won’t generate MORE INCOME, the website WILL… That soda will generate some unhealthy consequences though. CHOOSE WISELY.
Tons of research shows that a significant savings can be achieved by changing your thermostat just 3 degrees. 3 degrees!!!!!!
“The rule of thumb is that you can save about 3% on your heating bill for every degree that you set back your thermostat” full time, says Bill Prindle, deputy director for the nonprofit American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
Take a calculator to it… what does 3% look like to you???? Now, if your electric bill is usually $300, by raising or lowering your thermostat just 3 degrees, you could save approximately $27 month= $324 year. There’s your flight to Scentsy convention, an event that WILL help you generate more money in the future! CHOOSE WISELY WHEN YOU LEAVE TOMORROW FOR WORK AND NO ONE WILL BE HOME!
Dave Ramsey is the coolest money guy I know… and I just LOVE him. THIS IS ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE OF HIS QUOTES:::::
Tomorrow, decide you will take one of those steps…. to become a financial WINNER!!! Choose wisely every day…
