So I went from place to place making money every once in a while; I was a teacher at a private school, but you know that schools don't pay very well...I was a professional singer/comic/balloon artist, but that comes with a stigma and it was difficult getting gigs...I was the National Marketing Director for a Business Seminar Group, which paid the most of any gig I ever had, but it started going in a different direction than I was comfortable with, so we parted ways.
Through it all, I couldn't keep money in my checking account. Actually, for a long time I didn't even HAVE a checking account.
So recently I started evaluating my life..."Why don't I have any money? Why do my friends have money thrust upon them and I can barely keep above board on my bills? Why does it seem like right when I get some money, some kind of emergency comes up and takes all my money away from me?" These kind of questions stuck me like a BBQ skewer at a Greek Festival!!
In evaluating my situation, I checked out tons of books on how to make money, how to keep money, how to invest your money, blah - blah - blah...either they didn't work for me no matter how closely I followed the advice in the books, or they weren't meant for me at the get-go. I mean, how can I invest in an upside down house, when I don't have the right side up money in the first place?
As a result, I started researching, not HOW to make money, but WHY I did not, or could not, have money. The results were startling!!!
There was more than one reason why I didn't have money...and another one...and another one. My life was full of paradoxes that kept me from having money in my life/pocket/account/etc.
So with the reasons in front of me of why I didn't have money, I confronted each one and I found the answers that I needed to get and keep the money!!
And now I'm sharing that information with you!!
