What’s Your Money Style?

Most of us start our money acquiring as an employee…responsible to a manager & trading hours of our time for dollars. Most of us remain with this style of money.

When I was 12 I had my first paying job. The neighbors asked me to cat sit for a week while they went on a trip. I still remember the feeling of responsibility, and the utter excitement seeing that $20.00 bill they gave me on their return. It was right there that I decided I liked having my own money.  Money for babysitting came next. Then breakfast shift waitress, and bar maid to pay my way through University.

Many of us, as I did by becoming a freelance performing musician, enter the world of the self employed or small business. Here we find out about the awesomeness of tax breaks we weren’t allowed as employees but let’s face it, we are still in the “hours for dollars” money style. Show up, or no money. I was always hustling for the next gig and only as good as the last note I played.  Doctors, Lawyers, hairdressers, landscapers etc etc all have to show up to get paid and small business owners with a few employees also usually have a time intensive money style.

Some of us, at some point, look longingly at the Big Business Owners money style and think something like “if only I’d been Bill Gates/Henry Ford etc”. We can see the lifestyle of freedom big business owners have and often, it feels unobtainable to us. And the money style of Investors , well now, there’s a real mystery for most of us!

After the glorious cat sitter start, and a few decades of extreme effort, responsibility and diligence trading time for dollars on the left side of the cash flow quadrant I was exhausted. Why? because as hard as I worked, the end of every month looked the same as the last one. The end of every year and decade also looked the same…..by the time I paid all my bills and lived modestly, my bank account was done.  It was a life of quiet desperation. While teetering on the brink of resignation to “this is all there is” I met Kevin.

“Money isn’t everything, but it ranks right up there with oxygen”  I laughed out loud when I first heard that quote. It’s true!  But some people resign themselves to not acquiring the money they once wished for, and they settle for only quoting the first half of the sentence. 

Kevin introduced me to the world of network marketing. I read a number of success stories. I got my questions answered, learned about the profit-sharing and grew to understand this was a business model with a money style I had not yet experienced. Ok the few years of royalty cheques, from the studio call for the lead in music for The National news, had opened my eyes to the style. And it was thrilling to learn this money style was available, from a Home Business that I would own! This was my chance to cross over to the right hand side of the cash flow quadrant and experience the lifestyle freedom of a leveraged Big Business Owner.Hope sprang back into my heart. Skill-wise, I was ignorance on fire when I started my Home Business but in my heart, I had “won the lottery”.. I could dream of a great retirement now.  I could actually anticipate reaching freedom… where my time schedule was set by myself and my income surpassed the monthly bills.

Most of us are educated to become employees. Schooling programs us mentally for the E money style and some of us get cocky enough to wrestle our way to the S. It’s the mindset and heart/skill set of the B, that affords us passive/royalty income & wealthy money style. If you don’t seek after it, you will never experience it. Unless you think you’re going to produce multi-generational books, music or inventions, or find the financing, ideas and backing to launch your own Microsoft style company, then network marketing is your chance to experience a style of money known as The King of Money. Look in the mirror and just get honest about this!!! We all only live once, why not decide to experience every money style available! Safety, security and being the best are often ‘way over rated as life experiences….freedom, and the masterminding synergy of like-minded souls reaching for wealth is invigoratingly delicious.

cashflow-quadrant-diagram1Very little in life and education has prepared us to succeed in network marketing  and that’s OK. It’s a learn as you earn business, and, with a good team system in place chances of succeeding are high.

It cracks me up when people snicker that “noone makes any money in network marketing”. Facts are $182 billion dollars annually is a lot of money, and about half of that pays back to distributors. So obviously a lot of people are making money. The industry has seen hockey stick (Go Leafs) growth since it’s inception in the 1950’s. Don’t listen to the grizzlers in the world, get the facts from people who are succeeding.
