One Year to Wealth

Are You Investing in Yourself in 2017?

Last week, I shared the simple formula that I used to become a Savvy Investor.  If you missed the free webinar, One Year to Create Wealth…In One Simple Step a Month. You can listen to the recording here. I’ve had a ton of feedback letting me know how helpful it was. I’m delighted!

But, believe me, I know how the mere thought of investing can seem daunting…if not impossible. I know how easy it is to go into avoidance.

The key is to make a commitment, invest in yourself, and find support to hold you accountable.

That’s why I created One Year to Wealth: Becoming a Savvy Investor. I will show you how to take charge of your money and your life…how to become the Powerful Woman you were born to be.  And I want to make sure you get all the support you need. I want to be right there holding your hand.

My goal is to show how simple (and fun!) investing can be by breaking it down into very small chunks. I want YOU to know the enormous freedom, immense security, the incalculable peace of mind and the unbelievable confidence that I now experience.

The first step I shared is Commit. If you are ready to take that step, you can join me in a very powerful full year class: One Year to Wealth: Becoming a Savvy Investor.

This class will only be offered once in 2017. We’ll kick-off on January 24th with a special live Set Your Intentions call.

I’d love to take this journey with you, to support and educate you as you become a Savvy Investor.

Are you ready to invest in yourself?

Here are some of last year’s One Year to Wealth participants who shared their stories. Can you relate?

“I continue to feel so grateful for this course and for everything it has helped me with. For starters, I wanted to feel confident to invest my 401K funds in the best way, and understanding what I’m doing with it. That was my reason for joining the course and it has been fulfilled in a beautiful way.
Further, I never had a clue that I was going to have my whole financial world, worries and all, be completely shifted into calm and confidence. My outlook is so joyful now on how to maintain a cash flow budget so I know that I will always have a positive balance, especially while paying the max to my credit card balance. I don’t feel deprived, and I feel that the discipline makes me feel abundant and money has value now. I don’t hold back when I want something, but I keep looking at it before making a move, asking, is this worth it? Is it more important than paying this to myself? (without judgment). Sometimes it is worth it, and then I get it with no guilt, which always used to follow purchases of any kind. And I’ve already paid off half the credit card debt that had been carrying for some years. The rest is all in 0% interest cards and being paid off rapidly.” ~~Monica

“Every now and then life presents us with a game changer. Barbara is such a person. One Year to Wealth , for me, marked a new beginning. Barbara handed me the tools to discover how my mind approaches money, how money fog works and when it arises and when old stories dictate my approach to money today. After almost a year of One Year to Wealth I feel equipped to talk about money ( I never did), to approach finance professionals ( I never dared) and to manage my assets ( I never even knew them.) Within the supportive and exciting environment Barbara created, it became possible to see my emotions as a part of my money story. With the course almost done, there is no end in sight. My money explorations have only just begun and they will last a lifetime. My role, going forward, is clear: to nourish myself, my family and the world. All emotions are welcome! Thank you!!!” ~~Katherine

“I felt the desire to tell you I am in tears of joy in how my life has changed this year, and that I am now a part of a wonderful future.  I am so thankful for OYTW and look forward to continuing with each level of Barbara’s offerings as I stretch.  It is a whole new world.” ~~Pam

Investor, Know Thyself!

“If you don’t know who you are, the stock market is an expensive place to find out.” Adam Smith

You know what your biggest market risk really is? Not volatility. It’s YOU. Or rather YOU acting on emotions.

Any decisions based on fear or ignorance are never good in the long run. Their only purpose is to defuse tension so you feel better in the short term.

Research studies prove that people, you and I, hate to lose more than we love to win.

So, when markets correct (go down 10%), which they do quite regularly or when markets crash (fall 20% or more) which they do every so many years, our emotions, especially fear, take over. And we make very bad choices.

It also happens in reverse. When the market is on a run, there’s a tendency to take on too much risk. And follow the herd…like so many did during the tech boom and real estate boom.

That’s where knowledge—of the market AND of yourself—plays a critical role. The more you know about the way investing works AND what makes you tick, the easier it is to separate from the herd, manage your emotions, and make wise investment decisions.

Taking Risks. Building Trust.

Financial Success demands 2 things of you:

  • You must take risks
  • You must develop self-trust.

Without taking risks, you will forever be a victim, live in mediocrity…and play small.
Without trust, you will forever live in fear and self-protection…and play small.

Risk and Trust work in tandem. Every time you take a risk, even if you fall down (and you will fall down), if you get back up and keep going, learning from your mistakes until you eventually succeed, you’ll learn to trust yourself.

I really believe the financial risks necessary to create wealth, combined with the personal risks necessary to achieve Greatness, exponentially strengthens your level of trust in yourself.

Never Invest Unless…

Decades ago, soon after I divorced my gambling husband, a friend of my father’s called. He told me about a Limited Partnership he was forming, TJ Cinnamons (A fast food place).

I had no idea what a limited partnership was, but this man was very wealthy, very smart, very successful, so it had to be a great thing, right?

I didn’t know that you can’t take your money out of a limited partnership because there’s no market for it. When TJ Cinnamons went under, I lost my investment.  Then I made a very smart decision. I vowed I’d never invest in anything I didn’t understand.

I’ve come to call this the First Law of Investing: Never put money in anything you don’t understand, whether it’s a stock, bond or the market itself. Not only do you not know what you’re buying, but you can’t evaluate the information to know if it’s time to sell.
