We all have a little boat in this world — and the key is to keep it afloat, despite getting tossed by the waves and the occasional leak. So how do you keep your boat above water?
In today’s episode of Your Money Minute with Tracy Stewart, CPA, I want to share advice for keeping your boat floating along even when the tide is high. Yes, your boat is little and may seem like it’s destined to perish — but it’s strong and can manage even the most treacherous of water. With the right support (also known as good friends and a accountability network,) you can have reinforcements when your boat starts to take on water.
How do you reach out when you’ve sprung a leak? The best advice I have is to keep your eyes open and look beyond your nose. Be there when your friends have a sinking boat of their own. It is empowering to be helpful — and they’ll be more likely to take notice when you’re going down, too. After all, we’re all in our boats together, right?
Financial independence is unbelievably liberating. Knowing when you need help can put you in the position to reach and maintain that independence. For more tips on money and success, subscribe to my YouTube channel for daily episodes of Your Money Minute.
