OK, be honest.
When's the last time you've questioned things in your life and biz? 🤷
I'm talking the things that have the BIGGEST impact (aka: time and money).
We tend to just "deal" with certain things because it's the only way we've known.
- We pay the bills that are due.
- We spend hours at the grocery store.
- We give away time and money all day. every day.
We don't even question it because it's just part of the routine.
But let's get real about one thing. Time and money are two areas that impact your life and business the MOST.
Yet we don't stop and question how we're spending them.
Let me give you a personal example. (Because I can be just as guilty!)
My husband and I both own businesses, so we pay for family medical insurance out of our own pockets.
And let me tell you it AIN'T CHEAP.
We evaluate our options each year but they tend to be in the same ballpark when it comes to monthly payments.
But we've never REALLY questioned if there are alternatives to what we've been using.
Until last week ... when my husband came across something posted in a business Facebook group.
Turns out there IS an alternative. An option that would save us a TON of money each month.
This was huge. So huge in my mind because it made me realize how I haven't been *questioning* things enough that really impact our lives.
If this could have such a positive effect on us personally, what ELSE could?
We should be questioning everything when it comes to time and money.
For me, evaluating time is easy. (That's what I preach, baby!)
I'm always thinking about the best ways to make use of time and spend it WISELY. To me, it's the most valuable resource in biz.
One example of a better use of your time? Instead of spending hours at the grocery store, order online (we use Walmart Grocery) and simply pick it up.
(This was a game changer for us and just one way we maximize our time.)
But now I'm on a mission to take things further.
And I challenge you to do the same.
This week, question how you're spending your time and money.
Take a look at your weekly schedule and your financial statements.
What are you spending the MOST on each week/month?
Are there any alternatives? (Dig DEEP.)
Ask questions, seek advice, do more research.
What if there was ONE thing right in front of you that could make an immediate impact on your life or biz?
Find that one thing.
