What Did You Do With The Money From Your Wedding Reception?

Mey here blogging about the interesting question What Did You Do With The Money From Your Wedding Reception?

…on your wedding day how much money did you get from gifts from your guests?

…what did you do with that money?

…did you buy dishes and appliances?

…did you put it in a joint savings account?

…what if you I told you that we invested that money and now we get paid monthly from that initial investment and I’m going to tell you how to do it too?

How We Made Our Wedding Money Make Us More Money

…Jomel and I got married on August 12, 2012 and we had our big wedding party at the end of October of that year…

…so we gathered up some cash from the party, and it was about $5,000 total…

…I discussed with Jomel and we decided to take that money and invest it for dividend income…

…so we opened a joint brokerage account and then started investing in ARR (click here for more about ARR)

…so right now, our original $5,000 investment is valued at about $2,500, meaning that if we sold all of our stock today we would get that much money (so ARR depreciated in value about 50% in the last 2 years)…

…and our dividends that we’ve earned in a little over 2 years until now have been about $1,000.00…

…currently we are making roughly $30.00/mo from this investment…

…now, we don’t know if the dividends will go up or down…

…however, we are happy that our investment is still making us money and will continue making us money until we are old and gray and pass it on to our estate…

What Would Have Happened If We Had Spent Our Wedding Money Instead?

…let’s say we had spent the money instead?

…over 2 years we could have spent about $200/mo…

…that would have helped pay some bills, just our utilities really =)

…and then what?

…we would have nothing left…

…we wouldn’t have monthly dividends to put in our joint account which have ranged from $30/mo – $60/mo…

…maybe we would have some furniture or stuff if we used it to get something…

…however, I don’t know about you, I would rather have the monthly dividends!

Conclusion

…what you did with your Wedding money is probably what you do with all of the money that comes into your life…

…you’re either investing or spending…

…wouldn’t it better to have our money work for us?

…I’m here to help you have that shift in a Financial Freedom mindset…

…because your freedom matters…

…more money for you means more money towards a harmonious marriage, and a stable family where you actually have the time and money to be there for your kids…

…please let me know in the comments below what you did with your the money from your Wedding Reception, or any other thoughts on your goal of financial freedom!

P.S.

…also, I want to let you know a little bit about me and what I do…

…I’m Mey, a blogger and a mother, wife and I’m committed to your financial freedom…

…I also use my blog to help myself and others achieve financial freedom by making money through blogging…

…have you ever thought of blogging too and making money teaching people something that you love?

…it could be on how to raise 3 boys, or on how to cook Vegan food…

…it could be on nutrition or working out to get muscle definition…

…whatever your passion is, there’s a simple system that I use to blog and make money too!

How Do I Help My Friend Save More Than $5,000?

…Mey here on a beautiful Wednesday morning and I admit that it was hard to wake up this morning so to help me out my son cried real loud for mango juice and I got up to take him out to Grandma, and so blessed me with the time I need to write about How Do I Help My Friend To Save More Than $5,000?

…so, I have a friend and I talked to her the other day about her saving…

…she used to not save at all…

…only paid debt which she kept accumulating…

…so she finally started saving, YAY!

…however, when I spoke with her she said she stopped saving when she hit $5,000…

…basically, life happened…

…so, being the person that I am I want to help her become financially free…

…so, the big question is, how do I get my friend to save more money and pass her $5,000 mark?

…I decided to text her last night…

“Why stop at $5,000?  What’s so special about that number?”

…she replied “I don’t know =)”…

Reasons people don’t save

…sometimes, people don’t realize that there is a reason they don’t save…

…they think it’s “life” and it’s not…

…they are programmed in their head to save to a certain amount so that their wealth will always be the same…

…why?

…it’s because they only think they are worth that much…

…it’s interesting and the best way to see it is to look at their Networth…

…I sometimes hit blocks too, I was negative for the longest time…

…then I finally figured out that I felt loved ones would always take my money so I made myself have none to take…

…funny huh?

…so once I figured out the story, I was able to get my Networth back in the positive…

…then I hit another block, and it hovered at $50,000 for a year…

…then I realized that I had hit a block with success, didn’t think my business was going to succeed so sabotaging it with overspending…

…got a grip on that, made a budget and started doing regular business meetings with my spouse Jomel, and Networth has been going up ever since…

…the journey brings us our lessons…

…shows us what our assumptions are about our lives, that we haven’t examined since we made them sometimes many years ago…

…it tends to always stay the same unless we root out the cause, and change our habits…

…I’ll have to ask my friend, what is the root cause, the childhood story, the reason you would only save to $5,000 and stop there?

…or maybe we have to do more empowering questions…

How To Breakthrough Savings Blocks and Become Financially Free

…really, it just comes down to a realization…

…the only way to become financially free is to do the work (saving and wise investing)…

…so if I get stuck I know I’m stuck…why?

…because I check my Networth, passive income and expenses on a weekly if not daily basis…

…you need something or someone to tell you when you are stuck…

…most people like my friend don’t even realize that they’ve hit a block and need to get past it…

…if you don’t check your progress regularly, go ahead and follow the Weekly Financial Freedom Checklist, also live on my Periscope Channel every week usually on Fridays…

…when you get to a block (and you probably will, the road is scenic, and has all kinds of bumps, turns, etc to make it more fun and challenging) it’s a great time to stop and ask yourself some questions…

…how do I make it past this block and continue on my journey?

…what do I need to release or let go of to move forward?

…how can I continue on my journey to financial freedom?

…when we stop and ask ourselves, the answer usually presents itself to us…

…our inner wisdom will tell us what we need to know…

…when I realized that I didn’t take my business seriously, and thought that I would never succeed so I was sabotaging it…

…that was a real eye opener for me…

…and now the business is finally pulling itself out of the red, into the black…

…just like my personal finances did…

Conclusion

…my friend taught me a great lesson…

…she showed me that the road is full of scenic spots…

…maybe she pulled over so she could get a scenic view, and didn’t realize that she had stopped her savings…

…I hope she finds what she needs to start saving again…

…I hope you also found value in this post…

Are You Saving For A Rainy Day or a Sunny Day?

…Mey here at the newly opened Honolulu Coffee Company with my Mom, author of Veluli: Specimen AMAC-1, blogging about Are You Saving For A Rainy Day or a Sunny Day?

…why would anyone save for a rainy day?

…isn’t that when we all stay inside, and spend time cleaning the house or sleeping in?

…I mean, why would you need money on rainy days, instead of sunny days, or cloudy days…or anyday?

…let’s save for everyday, for the rest of our lives, so we can become financially free in our thirties instead of in our sixties (if ever…)…

…and let’s talk seriously about why it’s important to really think about this concept with saving for a particular day with something far more powerful…

Saving For A Rainy Day – The Consequences

…I don’t know if you’ve heard of this however, what we focus on we bring into life…

…so if we focus our savings for rainy days, then we end up saving for disasters or problems and spend all our savings on those…

…focusing on rainy days creates more rainy days…

…the same goes to an emergency fund…

…do you really want emergencies in your life?

…so how do you fix this and still have savings?

…read on to find out…

Saving For Sunny Days Too – Short Term Savings For Spending

…instead of focusing your account on emergencies or for rainy days…

…call it your Short Term Savings For Spending Account (taken from the amazing training from Tracy Walker, 6 Figure Shortcuts…sorry link to purchase is not available yet, message me if you want it)…

…so, what this account does is allow you to save and use the money in this savings for spending on things that pop up that you want to spend on…

…in her example, she used $500 to help her nephew buy his school supplies…

…or if you need to pay for a car repair, or if you decide to buy a surf rack, or whatever…

…see, this account is not focused on emergencies, it’s focused on short term spending needs…

…now you can spend on your sunny days too…

…doesn’t that feel so much better?

Conclusion

…how you budget and manage your money, what you call your accounts, is crucial to achieving your financial freedom…

…use smart account names, and smart goals for each of your accounts that will take you to where you want to go…

…it’s time to focus on the positive uses of money and savings, so that we can welcome more sunny days and savings into our lives!

…tell us what you think of saving and the names of your short term savings for spending account in the comments below…

…finally, I hope that you got amazing value from this post…

…my goal is to make you financially free!

…I love blogging and financial freedom is my passion…

…what’s your passion?

…want to blog about it and make money too?

Are You Emotional About Money?

…Mey here and my husband gave me 10 minutes to blog and do all our of internet marketing so today’s topic is Are You Emotional About Money?

…do you make spending decisions based on your feelings?

…when you are depressed do you go shopping to cheer yourself up?

…do you spend when you’re angry…excited?

…do emotions run your money?

…who is actually in control?

…well, if you spend emotionally then you are like most people…

…spend because you feel like it and use logic to rationalize it later…

…do you know the biggest barrier for most people to obtaining their financial freedom is just spending?

…if we saved instead of spent so much money, we would all be free in probably 5 years (I’m serious)…

The Solution To Emotional Spending

…this isn’t the easiest solution…

…most people won’t change their emotional spending until they owe more than they can handle…

…I’m an example of that myself…

…here’s the best advice that was given to me…

…wait until the next day to make a purchase decision…

…if you feel like buying something now, wait and buy it tomorrow…

…trust me, it will still be there…

…I don’t care if you see timers and buzzers and your heart is pounding…

…just sleep on it and see if you still want it in the morning…

…finally, meditation works as well…

…take a time out, and meditate on your buying decision…

…does it make sense for you?

…is it going to make you richer or poorer…

…if you didn’t buy it, would you be ok…

…what does your intuition tell you?

Conclusion

…hey, I’m not afraid to admit that emotional spending used to be one of my biggest problems…

…the years I took climbing out of debt has taught me the strength to control my spending decisions so that they make me wealthier…

…want to test yourself, CLICK HERE watch the video with the timer, and see what you will do…

…if you sleep on it, and think to yourself, yes, I do want to start blogging like Mey and make money online, then I want you to get started…

…if you sleep on it and realize that you don’t really want to blog, then don’t…

…have a great night!

How to Become Financially Free By Understanding Your Money Personality

…Mey here on a beautiful Monday afternoon masterminding in Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf with my good friend Candice blogging about How to Become Financially Free By Understanding Your Money Personality

…do you know what your money personality is?

…I learned these money personalities from the Peak Potentials Millionaire Mind Intensive seminar…

…now called the Millionaire Mind Experience seminar (as it is owned by a new owner)…

…learning more about how you handle money will help you become financially free faster!

…so, read through them below and find out which one you are…

Spender

…by far the most common personality is oftentimes to spender personality…

…maybe it is because our culture encourages us to spend, spend, spend…

…get a bigger house, or a nicer car, or go on a cooler vacation, or buy the latest fashions…

…we are constantly trained to spend, spend, spend…

…maybe you are spending to get status, to look good, to keep up with the Jones’s…

…maybe you are spending to be a celebrity, or hang out with celebrities and get praise and attention…

…another type of spender is someone who is always paying for their family…

…sending this child to college, and that cousin a birthday gift, and sending money to your brother to bail him out of jail and so on…

…or maybe your spending because you grew up with stingy or poor parents, and were denied nice things as a child, and are spending on yourself…

…if you have this money personality type then you probably buy things on credit a lot, maybe have a lot of debt, also you have  a lot of things that you’ve bought in your home that you never use or touch, or a bunch of family members who always ask you for money…

Spender’s tips to becoming financially free – you have to take care of yourself first, and that doesn’t mean spending all of your money away…

…say to yourself everyday “I deserve to have money”

…because for whatever reason, money leaves you as soon as you get it so you need to keep it For Yourself!

…next, ask yourself “How can I become financially free?  What steps do I need to take to control my spending and start saving?“…

…then you need to save at least 10% of what you make starting with your next paycheck, bonus or income

…doesn’t matter if you have a lot of debt now…

…with your personality if you never see success through savings then  you will always have debt so you need to start saving…

…when you start saving and lowering debt at the same time, then the money you save will eventually be greater than the money you owe…

…you have to save, and pay your debtors after you have saved…

…always pay yourself first in the form of savings…

…next, only spend money that you actually have, so cut up those credit cards and no more borrowing for you…

…it’s ok to spend, just not on anymore credit…

…seriously, open up your wallet and cut up the credit cards now…

…finally, find a friend who can support you

Saver

…the saver is a person who saves all of their money…

…they don’t want to spend it on this or that, and are happy to see the money in their savings grow, just for it’s own sake…

…savers are the second largest segment of the population…

…you know you are a saver if you have a savings account, 401K, or brokerage account that keeps growing in value…

…you get joy out of putting money into your savings and you dislike spending, and avoid it at all costs…

Saver’s tips to becoming financially free

…saving without spending is stifling your financial freedom in that you are not free…

…you may have the finances however you are a slave to your money…

…money is meant to circulate and flow, through wise investments and expenditures…

…to find happiness you need to have a balanced financial life…

…it’s great to save however to become free of your money and enjoy your life more you need to do the following steps:

1) Spend 10% of the money you make on having fun and feeling rich…

2) Give between 5%-10% to charity, preferable anonymously…

3) Spend more time helping others and less time checking your bank balances…

Avoider

…the avoider is someone who avoids anything to do with money…

…they feel that they don’t understand it and thus they don’t even think about it…

…you know that you are an avoider if you throw your bills away without even looking at them…

…or you let your bills pile up and don’t open them…

…you probably have a lot of late fees, and stress around thinking about money…

…perhaps you have designated a spouse or someone else to help handle your money for you…

Avoider’s tips to becoming financially free

…avoiders think that money is complicated when saving is one of the simplest things you could do with your money…

when you get a check have the automatically split it so that 10% gets deposited into a savings account

turn over the management of that savings account to a trusted financial planner

…saving is like exercising a muscle…

…the more you do it the easier it gets…

…and your financial advisor will figure out what to do with the money…

simplify and consolidate debt

reduce your expenses so that you can keep better track of where you are spending your money

be careful of spending money on get rich quick schemes, and MLMs that you aren’t really going to work

…your personality likes to opportunity hop, spending lots of money along the way, looking for the quick way to fix your money problems…

…if you just focus on saving and simplifying and the skills that actually make you money, it will get easier over time…

Money Monk

…if you are a money monk, that means that you think money is unimportant in comparison to your spiritual or idealistic pursuits…

…so you don’t work on earning it and you give it away when you get it quite easily…

…to you, being spiritual means not having money in your life to distract you or make you become sinful…

…you may even think being poor makes you more spiritual…

…or you may be interested in some cause, like world peace, and spend your time focusing on that and not on money…

…in any case, you have bigger goals and want to live a pure life…

…and don’t see how money can be any part of it…

…you know you are a money monk if you have very little money, feel like you are a spiritual person or an idealistic person who doesn’t need money…

…and if you tend to give all of your money away to causes and charities…

Money Monk’s tips to becoming financially free

…being poor is not a spiritual pursuit…

…Mother Therese gets tons of donations to do the good works that she does…

…go to any church and they need your money to function in the form of tithes…

…and if you have a great cause, you know that you need money to fund your projects and you’re probably always looking for or answering to investors and sponsors and donors…

…so being poor is not serving you…

…in fact, aside from the experience of being poor, you should be getting rich as soon as you can if you really want to make a meaningful impact on this planet…

…just understanding this will help you as you are a very smart and savvy type and once you understand this basic concept, you will put value on accumulating money and paying yourself first…

so set up a savings account and start paying yourself first, at least 10% of everything you make

…and let it grow…

…because you are going to get your goals faster and make a bigger difference in this world rich…

Will Making $50,000/mo Make You Financially Free?

…Mey here on a beautiful Tuesday evening, listening to the crickets singing outside my window here in Honolulu, Hawaii, writing today on the question Will Making $50,000/mo Make You Financially Free?

…I asked this question to a couple of young security guards today at Ala Moana Mall and their answer was “Of course, that a lot of money!!!”…

…well, sit tight and get ready for some real life stories that may change your thoughts on this question…

REAL ESTATE INVESTOR STORY

…there’s plenty of people with this story, including Tracy Walker, who I know through my internet marketing business…

…the market is hot and she’s selling up to 4 properties a month with a profit on each sale of about $30,ooo!

…high on life, she’s going on trips, buys a nice house, a hummer, a lexus…

…and then when the market crashes her wealth is gone faster than it came…

…house forclosed, cars repossessed and eating on food stamps…

…why?

…no financial planning, no savings, no smart investing…

…just living as if the money train would never end…

…since then, she’s started fresh in internet marketing and this time she is saving her money wisely…

FOOD TRUCK OWNER STORY 

…my ex’s Mom owned a food truck in Taiwan…

…it was a pretty humble food truck that her family would take out and man everyday from the afternoon until the evening…

…and it was tough work, and it was dirty hot work…

…people paid for their food in dollars, and every pot, laddle, bowl and lid was hand washed every evening…

…I know because I helped wash, and clean and saw them prep everyday…

…and that mom was able to raise 5 children…

…she was able to buy her children apartments in cash, in Taipei, which is not exactly a cheap city to live in…

…not only that, when her mother in law was sick, she was the one who paid for her to have her cared for…

…how did she get the money?

…savings and wise investing…

Your Story…

Now, the point of these stories is not to say that $50,000/mo won’t make you rich…

…it is a blessing and if saved and invested wisely will create financial freedom very fast…

…however, financial freedom is something that one must earn through saving and proper investing…

…so that one’s money makes enough money so that you no longer have to trade your time for money…

…most people do not grasp this when they start making money…

…most people spend more than they make!

…what about you?

…are you going to choose financial freedom?

…because it doesn’t matter how much money you make…

…financial freedom is within your reach if you only start following the steps of saving and wise investing…

…so tell us, in the comments below, and be honest, what would you really do if you were making $50,000/mo?

 

 

The 5 Reasons Why You Are Still Struggling With Becoming Financially Free And How to Fix It

Aloha, this is Mey writing a special blog post at 9:10pm on a Sunday evening on the 5 reasons why you are still struggling with becoming financially free, and how to fix it…

…this post is inspired by a conversation I just had with my husband Jomel…

  1. You Already Know What To Do With Your Money
    • one of the biggest mistakes that people make with their wealth is that they think they already know what to do with their money, where to spend it, and how to invest it…
    • if you are one of these people, you don’t find knowledgable advisors to help you save, you don’t read books on how to become financially free, or wealthy, you don’t spend any time on learning about money…
    • instead, you make money and you earmark that money in advance to buy something…
    • you think you already know everything about money, afterall, you are the one making the money!
    • HOW TO FIX THIS – understand that knowing how to make money is not the same as knowing how to become financially free…if you are not financially free and not getting any closer to being financially free, then you need to get outside help…find a financial advisor who is financially free and lives the lifestyle that you want (if you have kids, they have kids, if you workout then they workout…)
  2. You Think That You Can Become Financially Free With A Business Opportunity/Gambling/Winning The Lottery…
    • the second biggest mistake is that you actually have savings in a 401K or in a savings account and you think to become financially free, all you need is that one big break…
    • …if you are one of these people then you found this great business opportunity and you know it’s the one to change your life forever, so you borrow from your credit card, and then your 401K to pay for it, and spend all your money, stop saving or even drain your savings to continue to fund your great business…
    • …if you are one of these people then you think if you go to Las Vegas and win big, you’ll make it, so you go every year and blow your money…
    • …if you are one of these people you buy lottery tickets everyday knowing that as soon as you hit the jackpot, you will be free…
    • HOW TO FIX THIS – understand that financial freedom is only built through DAILY savings habits and DAILY habits of growing and learning how to invest and preserve your wealth WISELY (check out my Daily Financial Freedom Checklist on Periscope @meyduldulao)…my advice, get a financial advisor who is already financially free and listen to their advice…and if you really think this big break is the right thing, ASK your advisor first and you’ll see from an objective perspective…
  3.  You Spend Spend Spend Because That’s What Your Friends Are Doing
    • …the third biggest mistake is that you spend money on a new car, or buy an overpriced house, or buy a bigger TV every year just because your friends are doing it and you want to show them that you have money and you are just like them or better than them…
    • …if you are one of these people then you have a lot of pride and care about your material image and also care about what other people think about you…
    • …if you are one of these people then you don’t ever want people to know that you are living paycheck to paycheck…
    • …if you are one of these people, you probably have more debt than savings with all of the spending you are doing…
    • HOW TO FIX THIS – understand that most of your friends are not financially free…less than 1% of the population is…with this understanding get new friends who aren’t all about spending and are more focused on becoming financially free…get a financial advisor who is already financially free…
  4. You Don’t Have a Savings
    • most people do not have any savings except for a 401K…
    • …if you are one of these people, you might always be paying off debt and thinking once you pay off your debt you will start saving…
    • …if you are one of these people, you might think that life is short and you should spend what you make now because who knows what will happen tomorrow…
    • HOW TO FIX THIS – understand that you have to save and have money to be wealthy…and you have to save now, and form a DAILY habit of saving…open a savings account today and then put in it at least 10% of everything that you make…do it daily and keep your savings safe by NEVER SPENDING IT…then watch it grow…
  5. You Don’t Apply The Financial Freedom Formula To Your Life
    1. most people have no idea that financial freedom means that you make more passive income than you have expenses…
    2. …if you are one of these people, you think that just making more money will make you free…
    3. …if you are one of these people, you think that only people who have high paying jobs can be financially free…
    4. …if you are one of these people, you don’t understand that passive income is what makes you free and you don’t know what passive income means (it’s money you make without trading your time, like dividends, interest, rental income that you don’t manage, etc)…
    5. …if you are one of these people, the more money the more you spend…
    6. HOW TO FIX THIS – right now write down what your total expenses are (say $5,000/mo)…then figure out how much passive income you have (say $0.02/mo from your savings)…then start reducing your expenses and increasing your passive income so that you can become financially free…

Hope you got value from this post, so please let me know in the comments if you’ve made any of these 5 mistakes and what you think!
