I'm Broke, How Can I Afford...

Written by Rob Taylor

Continued from page 1

But now I’m not broke, now I’m not looking like a tramp feeling sorry for myself.

How did I change it, and getrepparttar money to start my information publishing business. I’ll tell you. It’s real simple… and I want you to do it too:

Every single time you buy something, I don’t care how many cents or pennies or bucks it might have cost… you MUST ASK FOR AND KEEP THE RECEIPT!

Atrepparttar 116884 end ofrepparttar 116885 day in a small note book or on a scrap of paper, total up what you spent your money on. Now ask yourself: “Was what I bought today absolutely essential?” If not, take it back for a refund, you haverepparttar 116886 receipt after all.

Now put that refunded money in a pot or a jar and labelrepparttar 116887 jar “My Business Building Fund”. Better still, don't buyrepparttar 116888 goodie, treat or trinket inrepparttar 116889 first place and saverepparttar 116890 cash.

If you really want to get in control of your finances you absolutely, positively must raise some working capital, andrepparttar 116891 only way to do that is to stop buying crap and investingrepparttar 116892 money in yourself.

I mean do you really need that coffee or will water do? Do you really need that steak or will beans or rice suffice along with some healthy cheap vegetables thrown in?

“But I want to have a coffee, beer, steak” I hear you say. Well don’t tell me that you’re broke then. All you’ve done is exchange what little cash you have for something else other than investing in your business building fund.

No-one forced you. No-one but yourself is to blame for where you are right now.

You are inrepparttar 116893 situation you find yourself because ofrepparttar 116894 choices and decisions you have made duringrepparttar 116895 course of your life …. Stop pointing your fingers outside yourself…. You arerepparttar 116896 problem, and as such YOU ARE THE SOLUTION!

So stop spending money on useless trinkets, and superfluous goodies and snacks.

Bread, water, vegetables… you don’t need anything else to eat. Chances are you have a wardrobe full of clothes already so you don't need anymore of those... correct? Sell your TV it spews lies anyway. Use TV time to learn, surfrepparttar 116897 web looking for opportunities etc. Sell your car? Either take public transport, which inrepparttar 116898 long term is cheaper than a car or get a bicycle. And yes it’s gonna pop your skull with frustration.

But use that frustration to get your act together and absolutely commit to get withrepparttar 116899 program and learn how to become a self-reliant cash generating human being. And when that day comes, you’ll be able to walk into your bosses office, smack a cream pie in his/her face and walk off torepparttar 116900 beach knowing you are, atrepparttar 116901 end ofrepparttar 116902 day, an immensely and supremely powerful individual…. You simply forgot!

Third Step. Create a Business Plan. If you don’t knowrepparttar what, who, where, and when’s of your business, how can you effectively managerepparttar 116883 business? What? You need to determinerepparttar 116884 type of business you are starting? Are you offering a product? Or services? Or Both? Having this information will allow you to determine your start up costs, and where to go to obtain financing. Who? You need customers for your business to be successful. Who is your target market? You must consider age, sex, social standing, and economic standing. You are not considering these items to be discriminatory, but you need to focus on these items to determine where you will locate your business and how you will market your business. You don’t want to locate your Black Tie Clothing store in an area where ninety-five percent of people don’t attend black tie affairs. Inrepparttar 116885 same token, you don’t want to market you nail salon with a construction worker onrepparttar 116886 advertising materials. Where? You need a location for your business. Are you going to start with a home office? Or do you need a commercial location? When? Are you products and services based on seasons, or a holiday? This factor will determine when you open your business. You don’t want to start a business catering to beach wear inrepparttar 116887 middle of December. Nor do you want to open a tax service on April 16th. For more detailed information contact G Styl Productions Incorporated at Prod@GStyl.com.
