Do you know what your Financial IQ is?

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I mentioned last week that I was going to start a new weekly post that talks about financial intelligence, so this week I have a simple question for you, but before I get to that let me answer a question I received from a reader on financial intelligence. Dave, “Why should I care about financial intelligence? I come in do my job get paid and make a decent living!” Making a great living is great and most of you probably are more interested in reading something else or more interested in seeing what your friends are doing on Facebook. That is fine but I have decided that my intent for this blog going forward is to help people create a life that allows financial freedom. For some of you having a good paying job is all you are gong to what out of life, but for a few of you I know you want to create a life that allows you to live your dreams and have the freedom to do what you want. So, with that being said, if you aspire to have financial freedom then these weekly posts are going to be helpful for you!

Okay, moving on to the topic today, Financial IQ. What is your Financal IQ? Don’t worry I had no idea what mine was until I started reading and studying Robert Kiyosaki. In his books he lays it out in a simple way, so I thought that instead of me trying to explain why don’t I let him explain it to you. Check out this link and read the short post. Once you have done that you will have a better idea of what the heck I am talking about when I say Financial IQ. If you are anything like I was when I first read it I was shocked at what I thought I knew and what I thought were assets.

Let me know what your Financial IQ is by posting your comments.

Until next week,
In health and wealth

Knocked on Your Tush (Part 2 of 4)

Continuing our series on what you do when you get knocked on your keister, let me lay out a four-point plan you can use to overcome any obstacle you will ever face in life—a plan to turn any tragedy or setback into triumph.

Here is No. 1: I interviewed Roger Crawford recently, who was born with a physical handicap that affected all four of his limbs from the elbows down and from the knees down, leaving him with two fingers on his left wrist on one on his right, a partially developed right leg with three toes, and his left leg from the knee down was amputated. But he became a world-class tennis player, recognized by Sports Illustrated as one of the most accomplished athletes in history.
During our interview Roger made this very profound statement: “We are, often times, the one who creates our own handicaps.” Meaning, many times our obstacles are self-induced. Or, even real obstacles continue to have a hold on us because of these mental handicaps. I think we lose proper perspective. So true.
This might help you gain perspective…
A few nights ago my wife was feeling a bit stressed and down about a project that had not gone according to plan. She left the house in a bummed out mood and came back a transformed human being. I asked her what the heck happened and she told me the story of Jimmy…
Jimmy always has a big giant smile on his face. Jimmy cleans people’s fingernails and toenails for a living. Georgia, curious why this man is always so happy, asked how he grew up. Jimmy explained he was one of nine from a very large Vietnamese family. Jimmy’s father had been loyal to the American military during the Vietnam War. He was ordered to pay restitution, which was promised to be an imprisonment term of 2 1/2 weeks. Three and a half years later, weak, starving and brutalized in what turned out to be a labor camp, his father was released.

With his release, Jimmy’s father was determined to leave Vietnam and take his wife and nine children to the United States. To do so they had to… CLICK HERE TO READ THE REST OF THE STORY

Are you remarkable

Let me ask you a question, “If you were driving down the road and saw a cow, would you stop?” No, you have seen thousands of cows before, but “what if you were continuing to drive down the road and saw a purple cow, would you stop?” Maybe, or at least slow down and see what the heck is that. What I am getting at here today, on another edition of Open Blog Friday, is the idea of being remarkable! Yesterday, someone whom I follow on Facebook shared this video by Seth Godin and I remembered hearing him back at IHRSA several years ago talking about this idea. I have posted the video for you below but want to talk briefly today about how being remarkable can make a difference in your life and business.

The video takes place back in 2003 but is still completely relevant. Probably, even more so today! Why? Well, for one, the club market has become saturated and consumers have way too many choices. And secondly, consumers have a ton of choices and want to be inspired by something new and different. This is why you need to differentiate your product and service. Otherwise, if consumers don’t see a difference they will have no other choice but to make it about price. Now, if we leave it up to being all about price, we are destined to fall as an industry. Here is where being remarkable comes into play!

All right, I have posted the video below and want you to watch it. Now, as you are watching it, begin to think of ways you can become remarkable? Think of ways you can stand out from the herd and be something that people want to belong to. If we all put a little more effort into being remarkable this world we be a better place!

If you have examples of how you or your club is being remarkable please share below with your comments!

Make it a great weekend!
Coach Dave!
