Amanda Steadman set up Wealthbabes to educate clients about building businesses, wealth and maximising the internet.
“I spend most of my time now, focussing on empowering individuals, teams and companies to succeed and live life in their fullest potential; by inspiring others through coaching, training, writing, speaking, presenting and letting individuals know that if I can do it, you can too.”
“When you link your passion with your purpose – this is when businesses really succeed and the ‘money’ is the lovely by-product. I love what I do and working for yourself is an amazing way to live. I am a lifestyle entrepreneur.”
Amanda serialises her advice to help you maximise your wealth and potential here at the3rdi magazine.
This month I am coming to you from St Martin in the Caribbean. There was an opportunity that was too good to be true to follow up on so am enjoying the sun and beautiful white sands at the moment. The question you may be asking is ‘I’d love to do that! How could have a lifestyle like that?’ Well the answer is YOU CAN.
I am lucky to have a fantastic fiance and daughter and we decided that we wanted to do things that would not tie us to one destination. We looked at pictures in magazines and online. We also wrote our goals and financial targets down consistently. We created joint vision boards and MADE THINGS HAPPEN when the OPPORTUNITIES ARRIVED. This overseas opportunity appeared to come out of thin air and it all progressed rather rapidly. However, I looked back at my goals and visionboard that I did in August 2009. There were words like Business by the Beach and pictures of 5 star hotels, white sands and azur blue pools…
So it did actually take 6 months to ‘manifest’, if you would like to look at it that way! On top of this – due to investments over the years, its possible to have this kind of flexibility. What I wish for our readers is to start realising YOU CAN DO IT and you do not always have to have a million dollars to do it! Just DECIDE and go for it, then the circumstances start to present themselves! Be ready for them! My Questions to you this month are:
* Have you looked at your finances this month? How could you structure it to start investing – even if its a savings account?
* Could you team up with someone else to invest – particularly in Property?
* What have you don’t this month to further your wealth education?
* Does your company have an office overseas? Could you be transferred?
* Do you know anyone overseas who you could work for that would also supply an appartment, maid, etc!!
* What other job/careers/self employment could you consider to increase your level of happiness and fulfilment?
* Can you negotiate a raise? Less hours etc?
Wealth and success are about taking chances or calculated risks for those a bit more security conscious! Its about making a decision and sticking to it. People have commented. ‘Wow Amanda you are living your dream. You’ve upped after just having a baby and flown to the Caribbean and are still writing and working from there. When can I come an stay?!!’ I made a decision to live differently, to invest differently, to take chances to live the life and serve people the way I wish to!
So what’s your wish this month – and how will you make your dreams start to come true…? You decide!
