Rich Woman By Kim Kiyosaki : My Review

 Rich Woman By Kim Kiyosaki : My Review

 

 

 

Just as in the Rich Dad books, Kim Kiyosaki has set out to educate and empower women in the realm of finances and money. Having the knowledge and gaining experience with money, finances and investing can actually free people. Having that power and control of our own money can give us the freedom and independence that we need. Not that we, as women need to be independent of our spouses, but we need to have the knowledge and to be prepared should something tragic or dramatic should happen. If you are familiar with the Kiyosakis, then you know that the two of them are married and have been for many years. They have built a successful business together, and Kim has her own aside from her husband.

It used to be, years ago, that a woman should find a mate, get married and live happy ever after. The man of the household would be the one who brings home the bacon. But, what happens if the spouse passes on, or the couple get divorced? If the woman doesn’t have financial understanding or be able to take care of herself financially, she could end up broke or worse.

What I like about Kim’s book is that she touches on different ways that a woman can invest for her future. When I think of the Kiyosaki’s, the first thing that comes to mind is cash flow properties. I’ve read many of their books, attended their seminars and of course, constantly play the game CashFlo.

She touches on real estate investing, as well as the stock market, and commodities. Some people may shine when it comes to real estate, but kick butt in the stock market. Now, this is not a how to book, so please don’t expect to get real estate or stock advice!!!

Kim speaks to all women, and shows them that there are different things that they can do to make money and invest it. She also wants to help people to have a positive attitude about money, since many of us were told negative things about it growing up.

Her book is an easy read, so it isn’t like reading a text book. She uses examples, stories and discussions with her girlfriends to get her ideas across.

She doesn’t go over how to invest – it’s pretty much just the basis and to let people know that there are options out there. She urges her readers to just get started and take some action, no matter how big or small that action is. She wants to see that women accept responsibility for their own financial future.

The Secret To My Computer Guy’s Strange Ways

The Secret To My Computer Guy’s Strange Ways

 

The Secret To My Computer Guy's Strange Ways

 

Our computer guy came by last week. We love Scott – he does great work and always shows up when we need him. When I first met him though, I thought he was a little strange – not because he was a “techy”, or a computer whiz (computer people are a breed all their own), but he’s just a different kind of guy.

Scott kind of made me feel a little messy. I am generally a neat and organized person, but if you were to visit my desk toward the end of the week, I may appear to be a little untidy.  I have a very lived in and busy desk! I have developed a habit of putting my recyclable papers in a neat pile on the floor behind my desk, and at the end of the week, I deposit it into the bin outside. To me, my floor pile looks organized. Ok, it’s not in a tray or box, just on the floor.

If Scott happens to be here, I’ll come back to my desk to notice that some of my things have moved and the desktop looks different. I find that my recycle pile is now on my desk! I think Scott thinks that they’re just papers that fell off my desk and onto the floor and he is helping me by returning them to the desk.  I don’t think it occurs to him that I put them there on purpose!

Well, last week, Scott was working at the workstation of one of my girls. Now, Amanda can definitely be described as messy. She knows it, and we’re “working on it”. Her space has the occasional sunflower seed shells on the floor that missed going into the trash, a bloated and over stuffed inbox, rubber bands/ paper clips strewn about her desk, just to name a few. I have even seen food remnants on the keyboard, which I think is just disgusting.

I watched Scott and the clock as he went to work at her station.  It took him 20 minutes before he even touched the computer! After picking up some of her trash, organizing piles, tightening up cable and lines, moving objects out of his way, he was finally ready to begin working on the computer.

Once he got her area the way he liked it, he got up, took a deep breath and said, “there….I have cleared my chi. Now I can work.”

That’s when it became clear to me – the light bulb came on. What Scott does is similar to what I learned at the Ultimate Game of Life, a life coaching program that totally flipped my life around. One of the most life changing lessons I learned (among many) was the importance of environments and how to design them to suit and support me.  I love to eliminate and de-clutter. It creates more ease and flow in my life which allows me to be more creative and achieve more of the results that I want. It is similar to what Scott was doing. By clearing space and distractions, he is able to focus and get done what he wants.

While to some people, it may appear that Scott is wasting time or trying to pad his client’s invoices, but it reality, he is creating a workable, ease filled flow in order to be able to do his job.

 

I learned this valuable lesson and more when I participated in The Ultimate Game of Life.

Right now, the founder of TUG, Jim Bunch is hosting a FREE Preview webinar of what TUG is all about. Click HERE to register  for this exciting and possibly life changing event which will be Wednesday, September 3!

Why Do I Blog?…

 Why Do I Blog?…

 

Why Do I Blog?...

 

I am participating in another blog challenge, and they posed this question to the participants: Why do you blog? / What is it that you like about blogging?

 

I originally got started blogging because it is what I thought I was supposed to do. I thought if you wanted to be “online”, you need to have a blog. It was what I was mostly hearing. Get a blog, put out content and don’t forget the SEO!

 

I think what I like most is the communications aspect of blogging. Yes, blogging is s great way to get your word out to the public, but it’s much more than that. Your blog provides you a platform to communicate with your readers.

You are able to:

  • Share your thoughts and ideas
  • Educate – what you have learned
  • Sell your/ others products
  • & much more

 

In addition to that, your readers can comment on the content you share and/ or ask you questions. You can then respond to him/ her in the comment section in the form of a reply, or you can take it a step further and create a whole new post for everyone to read in response to another reader’s inquiry or comment.  That person may have posed an insightful question that inspires a new post for you and may help others if you make a blog post of your answer.

Comments from readers can give you a clue as to what they want or what it is they’re looking for.

The whole process of blogging has helped me to be more creative, and to communicate with others. I have an even more fun time blogging when I get to participate in a blog challenge.

Start with a Smile and Keep it Going!

 Start with a Smile and Keep it Going!

Sometimes, I really enjoy running errands. It’s probably because I don’t view them as chores. (except for the grocery store and post office. Those, I don’t like so much!) I’m generally a happy person, just cheerfully going about my day which every 4 days or so starts with a fill up at my local gas station.

This morning, I had a rather nice time at the gas station. Yes, it is possible! I had to walk into the store to pay for my gas. As I walked in, I was greeted by this happy man standing behind the register.  I said good morning as I approached the counter. After returning my hello, he cheerfully says; “You are smiling. Why are you smiling?”.

Jokingly I replied, “The pump outside doesn’t like my card. I’m coming in here where I know it’ll work.”  * smile*

 

He came back with: “You are smiling, so it will work.”  * smile *

A fellow employee looked up at him puzzled, yet curious as to why he’d say such a thing to me.

We continued back and forth. Me, talking about sending out positive vibrations into the world and that starting your day on a positive note sets the tone for the rest of the day. * smile  *

He, about smiles being contagious and that’s what keeps the world going. He believes that smiles make the world a better place. * smile *

As I left and turned toward the front door, he called back to me, “Keep smiling!”

And, smiling, I did. I’ve been smiling ever since. I started my day on a good note, and I’ve been having a great day ever since. For a short while, the cashier and I were riding the same wavelength spreading positive energy throughout the store and into the world.  I’m actually still riding that wave as I type this post for you.

So, today, and every day, keep those smiles circulating! You’ll find that not only will you feel good, but you might make someone else’s day too!

My Latest Tolerance Challenge – Paying More Attention to Me!

My Latest Tolerance Challenge – Paying More Attention to Me!

Several times a year, The Ultimate Game of Life hosts some different, free challenges. They have a 24 Hour Wealth Challenge, and a 24 Hour Tolerance challenge. I recently had the opportunity to participate in the 24 Tolerance challenge.

Tolerations are just what they sound like. They are the things in our lives that we tolerate. Tolerations drain us of our energy, keeping us in a place of stress and struggle.  Some tolerations can be clutter, broken or unused equipment, junk and read emails, and debt, just to name a few.  By eliminating these tolerations, we are able to create ease and increase more energy in your life.

One of the things that I love most about participating in TUG is that everything is gamified. You get to play along with others (online) in a team environment. Everything is more fun and success is easier in with team members, people that you can share and celebrate your wins with. In the challenge, I learned how to discover the tolerances in my life and how to eliminate them.  I never really understood the drag that they were causing me until I got rid of them. I find that I have less stress, more physical space and I feel lighter (if that makes sense!). I have more organization, feel like I can get more accomplished in my life, and I feel happier.

So, along with the usual clutter I removed….know what else I eliminated?! I eliminated putting ME and my personal life in the back seat. I’m the one who will always help someone else first or cater to others before myself.  I decided to treat myself recently. I went on the local Pirate Cruise. It’s kinda cheesy, but a fun way to cruise around the harbor. We had fun. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and spent the rest of the day walking around the beach.

Check out my pictures below:
