Happy March! Are you feeling lucky? I hope so! As a gal of Irish descent, I love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. So, as we sit down together to share a song and clink our glasses of green beer, I have some advice to share about luck that I’ve learned in my life, mostly the hard way. First of all, I believe we make our own luck. For me, I was not feeling so lucky all those years ago when I was a young, newly single mother, with no job. But you know what, I pulled myself up by my bootstraps, started working in the credit industry, cleaned up my own finances, and created a career for myself. Although that was a tough time in my life, I now feel lucky to have gone through that period. I wouldn’t have my daughter, my career, my company or the chance to be here with you now, had all that not happened.
I often hear clients and others I speak to tell me about the tough financial breaks they’ve experienced as reasons why they have miserable credit and are missing out on building a financial future for themselves and their families. The truth is that you can begin today, as in right now, to change your luck. We’ve all had hard breaks in our lives, some worse than others, but it’s what we decide to do with those hard breaks that determine our luck. We can use them to fuel our desire to know better and do better or we can allow them to pull us down. So, if changing your luck with finances and credit is important to you, let’s get started! Here are your first three steps to changing your luck with credit and money:
My wish for you this St. Patty’s Day is that by this time next year you will be feeling much luckier with your credit and finances. Remember, you make your own luck! And if you need some more advice on improving your credit, visit me at www.jeannekellyacademy.com
