But I Don’t Have Any “Extra Money”! – No Apologies Video

I wish I could ____ but I don’t have any “extra” money right now.  Ever utter these self-sabotaging words?

So often people use the excuse of not having any “extra” money as they reason they cannot get the help, support, or resources they need in order to really grow their business.  But this is a Catch-22.

I don’t know about you but I’ve never had any “extra” money either. In a humorous sketch of small adventures, I take you on a journey and show you where to find that extra money you seek.

Last time I checked, there is no date on the calendar designated as "Someday."

Make decisions based on where you want to be not where you currently are.  It will likely be a stretch and that is ok.  Start small and expand as you go (this is about succeeding in, not bankrupting your business). (If you need help finding extra money, view the tongue in cheek video) […]
