You know, it’s funny how hard it is to change people’s opinions of you.
If you were the crazy partier in college, you might turn into a super-responsible person…but some people will always think of you as the CRAZY BRO who goes out hard all the time (!!!).
I see this in my own life. Some people still think of me as the kind, gentle soul who’s always there with a smile and a comforting — wait, wait…I think I got that wrong.
Oh yeah. Some people still call me the “personal finance guy,” even though I haven’t really written about personal finance in 5+ years. I just stare at them, blinking, and throw my book at their face.
But as much as I write about psychology, and how we all want to start an online business and travel to crazy places and live a rich life, the truth is money matters.
So I thought –for those of you who are new to IWT, or even if you’ve been following along, why not do a challenge around money?
I only had 3 rules:
- NO STUPID FRUGALITY TIPS. If you find me telling you to use toothpaste to plug the holes in your socks, you can unsubscribe (and kill me).
- BIG WINS. You have to be able to save $1,000 in a week if you follow my advice.
- FUN. The multitude of personal-finance experts have made us feel horrible about money since all they do is tell us what we can’t do with our money. I actually believe you can use money for positive things, whether it’s flying to Vegas, buying awesome shoes, or paying off debt.
I’ll show you how.
If you’re interested, click above to register. If not, no worries — I have more material coming your way.
By the way, the whole challenge is free. It’s my gift to you to say thanks for reading.
