Two words that many mistakenly assume mean the same

by Angie Carlson |

Money doubts and negative self-talked are enhanced by two words that many mistakenly assume mean the same thing.

Before I reveal the words, let’s note what false doubts and negative money self-talk can sound like:
~ Budgeting is a math problem, and I clearly can’t understand elementary school math. Therefore, I will never be good with money.
~ I hear the same things about money over and over again. I’m tired of hearing them because they don’t work. These “experts” don’t know what they are talking about.
~ I’m sick of hearing money is so simple. If money is this simple, it should be easy. If it’s this easy, I shouldn’t struggle. Yet, I am so overwhelmed and have no idea what to do.

Let’s look at two words mean: simple and easy.

Simple means something can be understood without a lot of effort.

Easy means something can be achieved without any effort.

Income minus expenses. Simple.
Determining expenses. Not easy.

Save for a rainy day. Simple.
Determining how much your rainy day requires. Not easy.

These “simple” concepts are easy to understand.
Doing them is HARD.

You are not alone.
I am here to walk beside you.
With some help, you CAN win with your money.
Would you like to get started?
