Life got in the way, so I have not touched my blog for ages. For almost 6 months to be exact.
Since 2015 I have been working very hard to get hold of my finances, pay debts and move forward. While I was not immune (like everyone else) to Covid, family problems and health issues, I managed to carry on through all the hurdles. I set up my little goals and persevered.
It cost me lots of strong will, frustration, and determination to get where I am now. Was it easy?
No, it was tough, really tough. So many times I just wanted to give up, to lie down and just sleep.
What helped me? My diary and written goals which made me accountable. And discipline. Discipline to review my goals every two weeks to make sure I was on the right path.
I also took another action which saved me lots of money, time and headache. I stopped attending all the courses where every five minutes I was told I would be able to make tons of money if only I took this and that course (!).
I admit, there are good courses worth attending, but you do not have to go for absolutely everything. Most of the time you can learn most of the time by researching the internet and by basically doing the things that you were going to do. Make mistakes, learn from them and move forward.
In business, if you don't pay your staff or your bills, your business will fail. It's just common sense.
If you can't manage a few quid, you will not be able to manage any bigger amount of money.
If you can't delay gratification and you spend money that should be used to pay your suppliers, you will not be afloat for long. Running business requires discipline, planning and strategic thinking. Plus it needs people. No people equals no business.
