Start a Trend
Posted by Gail | Filed under Financial Literacy
Do you feel like you have your money under control? Do you wish you did? They you are the perfect person to start a My Money My Choices tribe. Whether you’ve broken the code or are looking for help to do so, getting your family and friends in on the action is a sure way to make your community stronger. Ready to start a trend to improve your circumstances?
Let’s make 2014 is the year we work together to break the hold of ignorance. Let’s make 2014 is the year we start on a journey to strengthen our financial foundations and increase our sense of control. Are you in?
The first step is talk to family, friends, co-workers, whoever you think will be interested in joining you on this journey. These are people who must want to take control of their money and their lives as much as you do. Go fishing on Facebook, at your local curling club or amongst your book buddies for like-minded people who are sick to death of feeling like they’re not in control. Make a commitment to help each other and grow stronger together.
Step 2 is to designate a Watcher. This is the person who will complete the first level and help the rest of the group. This individual either already has their game on or is a self-directed learner capable of using the resources on their own to complete Level One of the My Money, My Choices program.
Next, each member of your tribe will head on over to www.mymoneymychoices.com and sign up. Want to give your tribe a special name? Go ahead. You can be the Roaring Readers and each member can add their initials. Or you can sign up individually and create a Facebook group for your Tribe. There are heaps of ways to do this. And geography is no problem because with Skype you can connect and chat to support, encourage and challenge each other.
I’ll warn you now: Level One is the toughest level to get through. You’ve got to be serious about this because it takes a crap-load of work to make it through Level One. But having done so, you will be in the best position possible to complete the remaining levels. And you’ll feel strong. Knowing what the hell is going on helps you figure out where you want to go next.
My Money, My Choices is the first program available in Canada (and likely in the U.S. as well, but I haven’t seen ‘em all) that provides a road map for where to start and what to do next. With this road map you have the tool that has been missing for so long. Financial literacy is no longer a nice-to-have; it’s a must-have, and My Money, My Choices is how you raise your Money IQ.
If you’re serious about taking control of your money in 2014, My Money, My Choices is how you do it. If you aren’t serious about doing the work yet, then you can blithely go along as you always have. When you’re ready the program will be here for you. In the meantime, stop whining about not having any money or always feeling you’re behind the eight ball. That’s a choice YOU are making.
