Get Financially Principled!


What is the reason you work? Is it for the money? If you really ponder that question, the answer is “no.” None of us are working for money — we’re really working to buy ourselves time, which is what money allows us. Time is what we really want! The more money we make the more time we create. As a small business owner, time is our asset and money morphs into leaves flying by our eyes. Small business owners then increase marketing, increase staff and increase revenue to rake those leaves into a pile. Only to have them blow away again. What are we doing wrong?

As the CEO of Viral Solutions and a fellow small business owner, I find it challenging to balance cash flow, aggressive growth (thus aggressive expense growth), a personal life and the desire to fuel this engine I called Viral Solutions; the organization behind my passion to help overwhelmed small business owners duplicate themselves so business can be fun again. A major part of creating that fun in a small business is the accumulation of money, the tokens that enable us to do what we want and need to do for others.

With the help of Alan Williams and Peter Jepson, I found a set of financial principles that they have trademarked, taught for decades to help all of us as small business owners achieve our goals. I would like to share those principles with you!

time and moneyBecause there is an infinite opportunity to spend, but a finite amount of money to do so, the creation of more time and money are only possible when we are empowered to prioritize the spending of that finite amount so we can get the most benefit. To be empowered we must be principle-centered, otherwise we will live day-to-day making money and spending it on a whim of so called “wants and needs” only to find later that we have spent our entire future (or all of our time)!

The creation of more money and time only comes by looking at each financial decision we make through the lens of principles. The Money Mastery Principles are the perfect lens by which to see the world as it really is.

Without a foundation of solid, time-proven principles that can help alter the way you think about money and the methods by which you control it, you may find temporary relief using some of these financial services, but inevitably long-term problems will return. Only through the power of principle-based thinking can you make lasting and meaningful change. As Stephen Covey has said in his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, “There are basic principles of effective living, and … people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.” That’s why the Money Mastery Principles are so powerful.

Apply the Money Mastery Principles Systematically and See for Yourself!

For each of us there is an infinite opportunity to spend money, but a finite amount of money to spend. Wealth and financial security are only possible when you are empowered to prioritize the spending of that finite amount of money so you get the most benefit.

To be empowered you must be principled-centered and you cannot be fully empowered if you are not financially principled! Otherwise, you will live day-to-day making and spending on a whim of so called “wants and needs” only to find later that you have spent your future. Remember… “you can have anything you want, you just can’t have everything you want.”

Wealth comes by looking at each financial decision you make through the lens of principles.

This important link between time and money is what Money Mastery® is all about — so much so that the company that created this powerful system of personal financial management calls itself Time & Money, LLC. Money Mastery teaches people how to keep more of the money they already make (eliminating the misdirected urge to put in more time in order to make more money) and helps them learn how to make their money go to work for them to earn them more money, consequently giving them more time.
