[Video] Uncommon Cents


One thing I want to challenge you with in your finances is called “Uncommon Cents”. Financially, it might not make sense to others, but it makes sense to you and your goal in life.

With everything you say and do, are you always try to make sense so that people always understand you? Or have you ever tried to say or do something that doesn’t make sense to others and then you get thrown of?

We are always trying to reach our goals. Our goals are to are to put more money in our accounts to reach our goals. We do want more money in our account or in our pocket, but there are also things you would want to donate to or be a part of.

As I think about this, you might want to buy a back pack and donate to a child who can’t afford it. Now they have the supplies for their school. Or you might want to donate money or time to a charity.

As a child we grow up hearing that we are suppose to save more, but when we hear things like give my money away or buy for someone else and spend on someone else it doesn’t make sense.

This is what I want to challenge you with – “Uncommon Cents”.

With your money plan, are you building in things that aren’t necessarily for your bank account, but that make you feel gratified and fulfilled. You can use the money given to you to help someone else while you also reach your goals.

This may seem uncommon, but how are you doing this in your financial plan?
