More Green, Please | Finance

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m sure a lot of us are hoping to get lucky by nightfall and receive a pot of gold from a leprechaun. That’s always been a fairytale to run off with a bucket of money at the end of a rainbow. They say money makes the world go round, at least that’s what we’ve always been told. With time I’ve found it to be somewhat true.

Financial security provides freedom, stress relief, and an open door to life-changing opportunities. The question is how do we get from the right now to our dream of living financially free. Here’s one way, make more of the mean green. How do I get more money? Work more hours at work, ask for a raise, downsize, sell unused items around the house, add an additional stream of income, or team up with a little leprechaun. Just kidding!

I know we’ve been taught since the beginning of time that the more money we have the more problems we have. That may be true if we don’t know how to manage with more. Each day we learn something new and it helps us grow, and each year we improve in different areas of our lives. This year, let’s grow our finances by asking and seeking more green!
