"Get in the habit of saving. It doesn't have to be drastic, but just get in the habit of when you are making money, you are always saving money." - Alli Williams

This episode is jam packed with great nuggets of financial wisdom to help you get your finances in order and find financial freedom both personally and professionally. I swear we could have talked for hours on this topic but we just scratched the surface today on financial topics like saving, investing, and funding your dreams!
One thing I loved about our conversation is when Alli talks about the "lightbulb moment" that we have when we realize "I can do this!" It is so empowering to have that lightbulb go off in our minds and hearts that gives us the courage to move forward with our goals and make things happen!
Whether you make $30,000 or $300,000, financial freedom is accessible to everyone! The more we talk about finances and work together, the easier it is to reach our goals and the more likely it is that we can change our financial trajectory!
If you're thinking to yourself, "This is exciting and sounds great and all, but where do I even begin?!" check out Alli's pointers to get started with achieving financial freedom and funding your dreams below:
Make sure your personal finances are in order. If you don't know where your money is going, figure that out first by tracking your expenses and then see what is left over to know how much you can allocate to paying off debt and putting toward your business venture.
Give yourself 6 months to put money aside and save for your goal. Little by little you can reach your goal. Start today to save! There is no better time to start than today.
Find the investment that makes the most sense for the stage that you are currently in. Don't automatically invest in everything for your goal, but rather think what certification, tool, program, coach, or equipment is most important to invest in first! Ask yourself what investment you are going to make and why?
Have open conversations with your spouse/partner/support person. This is not just a light hobby you are doing for fun. Take this seriously and you can reach your dreams!
Get in the habit of saving. The amount you save can change over time but start now to build the habit of saving. You will thank yourself later!
This is possible, friends! Start now. Believe in yourself. Communicate your goals to your support system. Learn new things. Create healthy financial habits. Then get out there and achieve great things!!
