let the $ circulate ...

how to make the $$$s circulate ... more importantly, how to make them circulate to you.

do you put a fountain near the cash register?

do you send out your invoices?

do you do a money dance?

all of the above? good.

yes, perhaps putting a water feature in the money area of your home or business will bring in the money, but more it is the attention to money that will circulate the money.

money cannot come to you if you have not asked for it. it seems kind of simple, doesn't it, that in order to be paid, you have to ask to be paid. whether it is for more money for what you do or what you have expanded yourself to do (e.g., ask for the raise) or if it is as basic as sending out invoices to your customers for them to send you their checks. they want to pay you for the work you've done. it makes them feel good about you working for them. they want to pay you, so give them the opportunity to pay you ... send out those invoices today!

money cannot come to you if you are not ready to receive it. do you know how you want to receive your money? do you know what you need it for? do you know what you are going to do with it once you have it? have you finished your budget? do you know what kind of economic system you want to participate?

money cannot come to you if you hoard it. have you paid your bills? have you opened your bills? are you having fun with your money? are you having too much fun with your money?

money issues ... there are so many business voodoo tools to help you understand money, but, in truth, there is only one thing you need to remember: be money conscious.

peace & harmony,

Not my strongest point...cent wise and dollar foolish describes me.
I lack initiative in making money -but then I don't spend much so it doesn't matter overly.
The best things in life are free!

awe yes ... the best things are free ... i like the 'gift economy' system myself. click here for more info on the gift economy. at least that's the one i choose to exist within. everyone giving freely of their 'best' to the community, everyone receiving freely of the best of others to maintain all the systems of support required for existence ... perhaps one day, a return to the best in all of us. one person at a time.
