Every dollar counts, literally every wealth journey starts with that first sum. We have to move our mindsets from waiting until we have “X amount of money” to start, or our lives are set a certain way, and instead commit to investing from wherever we are now. What better time than the present to take stock of where we are in our own wealth story and PROMISE our future selves to make the most of every coin and every opportunity along the way? The time is now because tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone.
I was having a conversation with one of my clients recently, and she is planning on buying her first investment property, bwoy was she scared. She’s a single mother and so she began to feel like this is something she can’t do on her own. She started to believe that taking this kind of step would require additional support in her life.
Purchasing an investment property as a single person is a very big step but I had to get her to realize that taking this step is more than just taking this step as a single parent, it’s about what it represents for her and her children. Her children will see their mother making big moves all by herself and creating a legacy for them, do you know how powerful that is? Yeah, you’re single, you don’t have a spouse to do this with and you’d much rather have a partner to make this kind of money move with, but that’s no excuse for not building generational wealth for your family, especially when you are in a position to do so now. As a matter of fact, you have the opportunity to become a role model for your children, by becoming the evidence that wealth is possible, even if it means doing it on your own as a single person.
You would be leading the way financially for your children by giving them the blueprint of how it’s done. They’re going to learn from that, implement it, and be able to create wealth for themselves because they saw you do it. Furthermore, when the time comes for them to look for a significant other to build a life with, you would have already set the standard because they would have seen through your example what you do, what you can do, and what you’ve done for them and they will want to emulate that.
If you are also thinking about making money moves for yourself and your children but you feel like you can’t because you would be doing it alone, I want you to stop with those limiting beliefs, stop it right now. I want you to focus on the love you have for your children and think about their future and what you can create for them. I want that to inspire you to make the big moves.

If you are single and you don’t have any children but plan to, now is the time to create that life for them even before they get here because if you haven’t noticed the cost of living is getting more and more expensive by the minute which means that preparing for our financial future is even more crucial than ever before.
When it comes to investing you want time to work with you, not against you. “Don’t put off for tomorrow what can be done today,” if you continue to wait for an ideal situation or circumstance or the right amount of money and it never comes, you would have wasted time. Start your investing journey today with what you have now, and allow that to grow. Everything else will fall into place after that. The clock is ticking, is your bank account growing?
