I have been doing the money making challenge for a month now. The first step was to find some money and I managed to find $25.65 to start with. After I had found some money the next step was to double it. That was 3 weeks ago.
I started with buying a couple of things to resell. I spent $3.30 on 2 tops and sold them for $10. But that is all I have done. I have been super busy with speaking at the Digital Parents Conference as part of a weekend away with 2 of my sisters, getting my daughter tested and finding out she needs speech therapy twice a week, helping some friends and family plus the usual school and home life things.
I was hoping to have done more by now and creating excuses does not change the fact I have not done much. In fact, it is when we create excuses for ourselves that we often allow ourselves to get complacent about things and end up allowing the behavior to continue.
I know I have taken on too much over the last few weeks. I have been keeping a time diary to see where my time goes and now know exactly why I have not achieved what I expected to have achieved by now.
Excuses are not solutions and they serve no real purpose when it comes to creating wealth.
I’m not going to dwell on why I haven’t full doubled my money yet. I am not going to tell you what I am going to do, because I already shared some ideas in this post. Instead I will just tell you when I have actually done more.
I am interested to know though if any of you have found any more money or if you have started trying to double it. Here is the linky which will be open for a week if you decide to blog about it.
