Here are 4 Financial Steps that will make you more Relationship Attractive.
4 Easy Steps To Becoming Financially Secure And Relationship Attractive
1. Fatten the PIG! Start an FDIC insured ING Direct on-line savings account. This is a FABULOUS way to have a small portion of your paycheck automatically delivered to your ING account earning a 1.50% APY. I have to say the greatest mind trick with ING is, while your money is being safely stored away and earning interest, you kind of forget it’s there and withdrawing the money takes a few days. So, you will less likely be enticed to spend it!
2. Stop the stinking thinking! There is a belief out there that says you are suppose to have money troubles in relationships and it’s all part of the process of relationship building. Yeah, it’s semi- true, but haven’t you suffered enough and wouldn’t you just love, for once in your life, to have things work out the way you envision them? I always say, build a solid foundation and if things go off course, like sudden money problems, you’ll have the tools and support to get you through it quicker. So, get your money mind-set in order, because that is one smart start to becoming relationship attractive.
3. Where’s that shredder? How many credit cards do you have? Can you transfer balances to one with a lower interest rate? Go for it and then SHRED the rest! You only need one and besides I learned that it’s smarter to have one card for travel or emergencies and pay cash for everything else. If you’re not ready to do this, take a little time to ponder over whether or not it’s worth paying interest or even high interest for goods and services.
4. Get advice! Put your money where it matters. Hire a professional coach to take you through what you need to do to get back on track with your finances. This is a VERY sexy relationship attractive step. It shows you want to start building a solid relationship with money, and that in itself, is a beautiful thing.
Now that you have 4 directions to go, choose one and see it to completion before going to the next. Little by little you will see the changes and before you know it, you are back on track with your finances and opening more space to let Mr. Wonderful in.
