I know many of you like me have very busy lives. Cooking everyday can feel like more of a chore than anything else. Did you ever stop to calculate how much money you are spending eating out vs. cooking at home?
I never went to culinary school, so my dishes can often taste very basic. What I have discovered are great recipes that are super easy to make. Trust me, if I can do it so can you.
The other thing to think about is how unhealthy processed and fast food is. To start the path to clean eating is by preparing and planning your meals in advance. The worst way to start cooking at home is by waiting till you get off work. Usually, when I get off all I want to do is go to a drive thru line.
All you have to do is find a good recipe website and there are many out there! I was on a budget this week and I made a super easy dish using chicken thighs. To make this dish healthier, I did not eat the skin. I served it with rice and a salad. Click the link below to try this recipe.
“There is only one way in which a person acquires a new idea: by the combination or association of two or more ideas he already has into a new juxtaposition in such a manner as to discover a relationship among them of which he was not previously aware.” ~Francis A. Cartier
Have you ever had a great idea pop in your head? What did you do with that idea? Did you write it down or just forget all about it?
Some people are afraid to act on an idea, because they are scared of what someone else might think. If you want to start acting on your ideas, keep a notepad and write them down. After you have listed your ideas start thinking about what you want to do with them.
It is common that people might not share your same vision or want you to succeed. This is why it is important to surround yourself with other likeminded individuals. A friend, co-worker, or associate might be the best person to help launch your idea. Please make sure they are trustworthy and a positive person first.
Remember Facebook, Microsoft, and electricity was once just an idea! You never know what the future holds and you could be on the brink of discovering something fantastic. America was built by innovators like you and I.
I am an only child and my imagination is very colorful. To call me a dreamer is an understatement. I started a laminated paper doll and play credit card business in elementary school. I would sell the items for 10 cents each. My parents thought it was a silly idea, until I was once able to start paying for my own lunch!
Start today and write your ideas down tomorrow. You could be the next great business owner, inventor, or entrepreneur by taking these small steps. Please email me at email@example.com for tips on how to license your company or start a business.
“Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.” ~Jim Rohn

Change starts with making a list of what you’re financial goals are. Experts suggest that you start small and make sure your goals are manageable. It is also important to determine what your needs are vs. wants?
I also suggest buying a calendar, so you can track your goals. Do you want to save money for a wedding, house, kids, or retirement? The path to financial freedom is easier when you can see your destination. Divide the goals in to weekly or monthly milestones and don’t forget to reward yourself for your hard work! It will be challenging at first, but don’t give up. The end result will be worth in the end.
Identify an accountability partner. Share your vision with your partner and have that person set a calendar reminder to keep you on track. Teamwork makes the dream work! If you know your weakness is spending money on careless things, make sure your partner is aware of what that is. It is important to start new habits and break the bad ones that are holding you back.
