3 Reasons You're BROKE
You're broke. Yeah, I said it. Scenario: You've got $100 in your bank account, if that. You're living paycheck to paycheck. You're struggling and it sucks. If you lost your job right now, you wouldn't be able to cover your daily bills and expenses. This is the sad reality for many people including millenials. Here's why.
- Reason 1: You don't budget.
You love to impulse spend and don't make time to sit down and calculate your expenses each month. You spend, spend, spend instead of having a plan and sticking to it.
- Reason 2: Instagram.
You spend way too much time on Instagram and other social networks comparing your life to others on social media. There have been instances where people spend tons of money on clothes, vacations, etc. just to "keep up with the kardashians" and be popular on social media while their bank account is on ZERO. Spending too much time on social media can also take a toll on mental health.
- Reason 3: You Don't Value Yourself.
When's the last time you had a raise? If you're self employed or a freelancer are you low-balling yourself? Are you charging your worth or are you "dollar menu-ing" your prices? You're burning yourself out, losing out on money, and not able to make more money because you are all burned out. STOP.
Do any of those reasons apply to you? Let us know and then let's fix them!
