The uncomfortable conversation, money.
When I was thinking about the future, I asked myself, if I make more money, will I be working more?
Everyone’s goal is to spend less time making more money but is that possible? In the blogging world, you typically hear that people only work 2-3 hours on their blog and make major cash! Is that realistic?
Simple and Pretty Co. pays for my bills and I am grateful that I am able to create content for a living and not have to live off of ramen noodles.
My goal is to always grow in professional development, which means to read books.
Lately, I have been reading “You Are A Bad Ass At Making Money” and Jen Sincero and she talked about how people give rich people a bad name and that we should stop.
How did we start giving rich people a bad reputation?
In my case, my dad messed up making money for me because he did not know how to handle his cash.
Yeah, he kind of made money suck for me and until now. I have been scared to make it because I’ve seen first hand how greed create a delusion and put someone in a real hole.
This post is does have links to support Simple and Pretty Co. and all
thoughts and opinions are my own.
With only diving into a couple of chapters into Sincero’s book, I’ve already have been able to shift my mindset about making money and being rich.
She states that money is the reason good things happen. It’s so true! If there were more people like me and my friends who are rich, we would make the world a kickass place to live because we would just give back!
At the end of chapter 1, she told us to write down answers to why you deserve money and here are mine:
