Ready to make more money this year? It’s a common New Year’s resolution and on almost everyone’s list, but where you might be missing the boat is in not making the proper changes.
It’s only logical.
If you don’t make a change, you won’t get a different result.
Why do so many people miss that? We can’t eat the same way or not exercise and lose weight. We can’t do the same activities we always do and make more money.
You have to do something different.
If you want a big change, a really really big change, then you have to change something that will make a big impact.
I’m going to give you the top 3 things to change that will make the biggest impact for you this year! Ready?
1. Create a wealthy mindset and select an affirmation word
That’s right, I always start with what you’re thinking, because if you don’t think right, you won’t act right, and you won’t get the right results. Everything in your environment – the computer, the desk, the tv, the carpet, the wall – everything was first a thought before it became real. So too are YOUR thoughts creating things. Either things, or results, you want or don’t want. What are your thoughts creating? What are your thoughts stopping from creating?
What thoughts have moved you forward in your wealth building recently?
What limiting beliefs have you caught yourself thinking? (Like I can’t share, can’t donate, can’t afford it? or something else?)
If you’re an entrepreneur, have you penciled out your calendar for the year? How many offers for people to work with you will you make?
Once you’ve confronted your limiting beliefs you can choose ONE word as your word for the year. It should be a positive word that sums up what you big goal is: prosperity, manifest, money, wealth, love, abundance, connection, fun, joy. These are some words I’ve used in the past. Choose your word and put it in a place you will see it often. Reflect on the word often and think about it before you go to sleep and when you wake up. Watch how true it becomes at the end of the year!
2. Buy silver and hold
It’s no secret my favorite investment right now is silver. I love buying it in the form of coins. American Eagle silver coins can be purchased for under $35 and are a bargain! I believe silver is going much higher and can be a tremendous investment and wealth builder – but only if you take action. Google your local coin shops and then look them up on Yelp.com to see if they have a good customer rating. Having a local source to buy coins will save you shipping, handling, and insurance costs of having them delivered to you. Keep them in a safe hiding place at home (not in the bank’s safety deposit box) and don’t tell anyone you bought them. Write a note in a sealed envelope and keep it with your will. Mark it to be opened “in case of emergency” letting people know where you’ve hidden the coins. That way, if anything happens to you, your loved ones will find the coins.
3. Create Your Luxury Brand™
Recently I read over 64% of wealthy people made their money by starting a business vs. only 10% became wealthy by investments. I think both are important to build wealth for you, but I’ve always believed having a business, especially one that can be delivered by the internet and marketed worldwide, is a great way to build wealth.
In addition, because I don’t believe the economy will recover for several years, I believe it’s important to price, package, and promote your way to high-end clients by creating a luxury brand business. This is more than just pricing products and services high, it’s putting all the right pieces in place so your clients can hear, see, and feel the quality of the product and/or information you provide. It’s embracing your uniqueness and creating your marketing message so it’s uniquely yours and clients will see your originality. It’s also highly targeted to a specific audience so they recognize they are your peeps and respond to your message.
Start with the WHO. Who is your dream client for your product or service? How old are they? Male or female? What do they have in common? What is their pain trigger that is going to make them need your product or service?
What is your highest perceived-value (outcome) item you offer? Is it an exclusive package for spiritual growth? Healthful products for more energy? A way to get a promotion at work? Make sure you’re communicating it uniquely so they understand all the benefits. Create a Pinterest page that inspires you and captures your luxury brand. You can see the page I’ve created for my brand here: http://pinterest.com/lindapjonesAWM/create-your-luxury-brandtm-business/. You can use this with your website and graphic designers and help them understand what you’re trying to create with your product or service. I let it inspire mine and they sometimes use the exact photos I’ve chosen.
In summary, you have to make a change to change your income.
