Day 1: Welcome!- How to Use This Course and What to Expect
Hello and welcome to The Divine Art of Money- 21 Days to Manage Your Money Like a Pro!
I want you to know that I’m so thankful you signed up for this life changing course. Taking this course will change your life in ways you might not expect. Too many of us believe getting control of finances is just too hard. But really, it’s only a matter of taking small steps and changing small habits-- one at a time-- to reach a larger goal.
The problem is, most of the information you find on managing your money better is incomplete at best, and confusing at worst.
You do internet searches and find a tip here, a technique there, but it’s hard to find a complete, step by step path that gets you where you need to go.
I’ve found that even in some of the most popular courses available, the level of detail that many people need is just not there. They give you the general principles, and expect you to fill in the gaps on your own.
That’s why so many people fail at learning to manage their money better.
In "21 Days to Manage Your Money Like a Pro!" I’ll take you small step by small step down the path, with the eventual result of creating good financial habits that you can stick with long term, and a monthly plan for your money that never allows you to spend more than you make.
When you finish this course, you will have all the pieces in place to successfully go to the next level with your finances… getting out of debt!
What to Expect
Unless you’re an incredibly motivated go-getter, this course will likely take more than 21 days to complete. You don’t have to complete one lesson every day if you don’t want to.
In fact, I recommend that you don’t. Take it at your own pace, and make sure you complete each task before you go on to the next one.
Even if it takes you 6 months, that’s ok, I don’t want you to rush through the course without getting the full effect. The point is to get it right, not do it fast.
Some of the daily tasks will be extremely easy, others will take more time and effort to complete.
You will also be asked to change your mind about some things that maybe you’ve been doing, but haven’t been working for you.
Keep an open mind, and understand that I’ve been there too. I’ve done all the stupid stuff and made all the mistakes so you don’t have to!
Inside these lessons, I’ll help you overcome some of the limiting beliefs that are holding you back financially, and open you up to new possibilities and strong financial habits that will ensure you start succeeding with money as soon as possible.
Everything in this course is tried and true, and I’ve done them myself, so I know they work!
As you complete each lesson, you’ll experience a shift in mindset and habits that will rocket you to the next level financially!
What This Course Will Do
This course is intended to get you to a point where you’re managing your money easily and intentionally, instead of flying by the seat of your pants.
I’ll teach you techniques that:
· Help you get your finances more organized.
· Accomplish financial goals that you’ve been neglecting, or just don’t know how to start.
· Help you find ways to get control of your expenses, without sacrificing all the fun in your life.
· Let you effortlessly put money in the bank.
· Allow you to access a complete picture of your finances at any given moment, so you’ll never be in the dark again about where you stand financially.
· Enable you to eventually manage your money extremely efficiently in less than an hour a month!
At the end of the course, you will think differently about money and how you use it. You will have new habits established that you can use to start winning with money for the rest of your life!
Then you will have all the tools you need to move on to the next level, which is getting out of debt, making more money, saving for retirement, and achieving financial freedom!
What This Course Will Not Do
First and foremost, this course is not intended to get you out of debt- that comes later once you build the firm foundation that this course offers.
Here you will learn what needs to come first- so that you’ll have every piece of the puzzle in place to ensure you’re successful at the next level- becoming debt free.
How to Use This Course
Even though the title of the course contains the phrase “21 Days”, it will very likely take you more than 21 days to complete. Think of it as more like 21 “steps”.
Each “Day” will take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour or two to complete.
But don’t stress about how long it’s taking you to get through each step. In this course, it’s much better to do things right than do them quickly.
The important thing is that you complete each step, in sequence.
It really doesn’t matter how long it takes, just continue moving through the course at your own pace.
I know life gets busy, so if you don’t have time to complete the next task today, take a minute or two to quickly review what the next lesson is about.
This way, the next lesson will at least be top of mind for you to think about before you actually begin working on it.
When you know what’s coming next, your subconscious mind automatically works on it in the background as you go throughout your busy daily life, helping you accomplish your next task better and faster when it’s time to actually do it.
As you move through the course and complete each task, you will feel a sense of accomplishment as you consistently move closer and closer to the ultimate goal of managing your money like a pro!
You got this!
Printable and Fillable Worksheets
For many of the lessons, I’ve included printable worksheets to help you work through that particular lesson. Just download, print, and fill them out as directed.
If you don't have a printer or just prefer to do things electronically, I've also included fillable PDF worksheets you can fill out right on your electronic device. It's easy, eco-friendly, and convenient!
Even better, if you're not a fan of math, the fillable worksheets do all the calculations for you. All you have to do is plug in the numbers! Of course, you can print these out as well after you fill them in, if you like.
Make a Folder to Stay Organized
If you do decide to print your worksheets, make a physical folder specifically for these forms so you can keep them in one place and refer back to them as needed. You can label it “The Divine Art of Money- 21 Days to Manage Your Money Like a Pro!” or whatever you like that makes sense to you.
This is your first task, so go ahead and get a folder and label it before you move on to Day 2.
Oh, and below you'll find a handy printable cover sheet you can use as the first page in your folder. Go ahead and print it now.
