Uncommon Cents [Video]

by Financial Design Studio, Inc. / March 18, 2019

One thing I want to challenge you in regards to 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 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 off?

We always try to reach our goals. Our goals are to put more money in our accounts to reach our goals. We do want more money in our account or in our pocket. However 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.  You may want to donate money or time to a charity.

As a child many of us 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 to help someone else while you also reach your goals.

This may seem “uncommon”, but how are you doing this in your financial plan?  If this is something you think you need help with or want to start doing let us know.  We would be happy to explain different ways or opportunities  to give to others through your financial plan.
