CREATE A 10% ACCOUNT FOR YOUR BUSINESS – What if you created a 10% account for your business and put 10% of everything your business(es) earn away. And what if this is separate from your personal 10% honoring of you account? I wonder what that would create for you and your adventure of living? …And speaking of 10% Accounts, How is the 10% account different from just saving money? Before the tools of Access and Joy of Business, I had heard the idea of paying yourself first. I used to put aside money for myself into a savings account each month and then pay my bills and continue living my life as usual. By the end of the month, as the funds in my checking account dwindled, I would just take money back out from my savings account if I wanted to go out to dinner, take a yoga class or get a massage. If that ran out, I would put an expense on a credit card. I had never taken into account what it actually cost me to live my life and include the things that would make me happy. I just chose to overspend to keep doing what I would like to! When I starting putting away 10% as an honoring of me and what I was creating, my whole reality shifted. Any money that came into my world (a paycheck, money from a friend or family, tax returns, selling something on Ebay) anything and everything I included in what I was creating each month. For me, it was fun to then calculate the 10%, withdraw it as cash, and keep it at home where I could watch it grow. I never thought of spending it the way I did before. I also started really loving how money looked and felt. I kept it organized and happy in its envelope! I also used part of this money as the money to keep in my wallet that a wealthy person would carry from my point of view. I went out and got some of the new American $100 bills (because they are so gorgeous) and started carrying those. It was interesting how quickly my point of view changed about how much money I would like to carry. It kept going up and up! And I never looked in my wallet and felt a sense of lack again! So now that my 10% has grown to a place that is really fun for me, I am moving my cash to the bank where it can grow some more. Knowing that I can always choose to keep it in whatever form is fun and generative for me. My only last thought is – too bad these tools to create money and business do not work at all…;)
