Master Your Money in Seven Days – 3

Are you still with me?

Yesterday was a busy day, but I have faith in you.

This will take work BUT it’s work you can do

Look, getting your finances in order is something you’ve been wanting to do for a long time, so it’s obvious it can’t be done without some effort.

I know the desire to master your money is strong, and I’m confident in your ability to persevere through these initial growing pains.

The good news is – this seven day plan works, all you have to do is follow along and do the work!

I need you to stay with me on this. Follow through. Push forward. Form new habits.

To master your money you have to power through challenges to get where you want to be.

It’s the only way.

So are you with me? Good, let’s push on.
