We DON’T all have the same 24 hours in a day ❌
It’s not true that all wealthy people work harder than those who are less wealthy. The truth is, we don’t all have the same 24 hours. Within three hours, someone can earn $24 while another makes $96. They could have achieved or built upon their wealth through several routes including inheritance, investments, or other reasons. Rather than focusing on working harder, shift your focus to working smarter and automating as much as you can so you are left with more time to focus on what you value.

Yes--you're good enough!
“Scarcity Mindset” is something many personal finance gurus throw around as to why certain people struggle with money. However, it’s not as simple as saying “have an abundance mindset” to get good with money. Instead, I invite you to consider getting “good enough” to take action.
