BIG HATS, NO CATTLE

Greetings fellow bloggers and readers! I was looking over my blog for some insight to share with you and found this post dated July. Here’s to another thoughtful day (back in the day I wrote this post and didn’t publish it). Enjoy!

Today’s blog is about leveraging your knowledge to increase income/wealth.

Ah, the good life- starting a beautiful day on the beach! Yeah that’s me but not really, just my imagination, one day in the near future. Proper planning, scheduling time off from work…etcetera.

Then BOOM, an unexpected financial event hits you and you have to use up your emergency fund!  Things happen and it can throw us off balance. A setback. Life gets in the way. Plan “A” failed, so now on to plan “B” and the rest of the alphabet.

I never understood the phrase “big hats, no cattle” until I moved to Texas and read ‘The Millionaire Mind’. Or terms like U.A.W. (Under-achievers of Wealth). So much for my attention to popular statements and my perception of the wealthy. I used to believe that one had to look like money in order to make money. Had to look successful in order to BE successful. Ha! Not!

Most consumers, you know the people like you and me, are poor at defense. Mostly due to our perception of what wealth is or how the successful look. Toss those thoughts out the window, take a look at the video below:

Oh, now I remember what happened that caused me to forget to post this article, I had to take an emergency trip to New Orleans to pick up a family member in distress. By the way, I used money from my Acorns account to fund my five day stay in a 5 star hotel and travel to and from. Not bad.

So, here’s to more of my favorite things- “places to live on the cheap”…like, share and support. Thanks for reading…

Until next time,

Peace, love and prosperity,

ET
