Free Hello August Printable and Wallpaper
Can you do me a favour and hover over the image above and "Pin It" to Pinterest? Thank you. :)
And just like that, it's August. haha. SO! New month, new goals, new energy, fresh start. When I create these printables, the questions and prompts I come up are just what come to my mind. Two things have been on my mind lately: Self-Care and Passive Income.
I'm starting to read a book called The One Thing. It opens up with how people are working harder than ever in an age of unlimited opportunity and yet many people still can't quite get out of the hectic ping-pong frenzy of home - work - home - work - home - work and the feeling of never getting ahead of the game.
Before I started creating passive income and understanding the concept of leverage, I was stuck on that ping-pong table. I used to run a coffee shop, spinning a dozen plates - literally and mentally. Knowing that I didn't want to be doing that long-term helped me make the decision to shut it down.
But I needed to replace that income...and fast! When I was younger, I had my own little housecleaning and babysitting business. So I started it back up again. At first I did all the cleaning myself and although it was definitely not glamorous work, I was able to let my mind focus on things other than what I was physically doing by listening to audio books and podcasts on personal development, business, blogging and money.
As time went on and the business grew, I was able to build a team of girls and delegate clients to them. At night, I would work on my online ideas, implementing what I learned from the hundreds of podcasts and books and CDs that I listened to on a daily basis.
Working so hard physically in the past for little reward made me determined to figure out smarter ways of creating an income. Now I'm amazed at how little I work now in comparison with 2 years ago and yet I've improved my income and truly love what I do.
The questions I ask on this printable are the same questions that helped me get to a really good place in my life. If we don't pay attention to what we're doing to create passive income in our lives and find ways to develop and leverage our skills, then we're always going to be ruled by money and, frankly, work too hard for too little.
I hope you enjoy filling out this printable and I hope it makes a difference for you. :)
