Venus' Journey:

Last reflections

I remember when I first decided to apply for Project Money. I really didn’t think that I would get picked but I was still looking for some financial coaching, so I said why not, it’s a win-win. When I got picked, I was so excited, but was aware that it would be a lot of work on my part. Just because we have a support system in place doesn’t mean that it doesn’t require lots of work on our part. When I went to meet with a business accountant, that’s exactly what it was, me putting in more work into my business. I must say I am somewhat relieved that I don’t have to do anymore live news interviews. I’m okay with the interviews, it’s just the live part that had my nervous up the wall. The social media posting was okay with me. I enjoy sharing and hearing how my family and friends continue to cheer me on. The blogging part is a lot of work, however I would like to carry this weekly blogging into my business. I believe it would give my business a more personal feel, and we know people who know you personally or feel like they know you personally are more likely to buy more from you. Three things I will take with me from this challenge; 1. A support system still requires work on my part, 2. My earnings is not something to be ashamed of, 3. With planning and focused execution, anything is possible.

I plan on continuing with my goal of saving for a house, improving my credit and savings for education and vacations. No matter if I win or lose, I’ve already won. Keep a support system, let go of the shame of not being a millionaire and focus and execute. Let’s go get it! The fun has just begun. 2018 here I come! Thank you Project Money!
