‘Millionaire Tips For Women: 5 Steps You Must Take Today’.
Imagine this… your parents come to visit and there's a hooker making out with a client in broad daylight right outside your home. Or this… you're walking back from school and pass two neighbours who offer you white powder. Your son thinks they’re selling sherbert. Or even this… a friend drops by and there's a wino sleeping in a pool of urine just outside your gate. Most nights you hear men fighting outside, women screaming, or cars getting smashed.
This was my life a few short years ago. Let me tell you, it wasn't a lot of fun. My car was written off by a joy rider shortly after we moved in. I lost count of the times I called the police because of violence in the street.
Believe it or not, this was a step up from my previous home. That one had water pouring in through the ceiling, toadstools the size of saucers growing in the bathroom, and green mould on most of the furniture. I couldn’t hang out washing without it getting nicked. One of my neighbours stole my credit card while I was unloading my groceries. Worst of all, a four-year-old was raped on the nearby field where I used to take my son kite flying. It was this shocking event that spurred my desire to learn about wealth creation. This was no place to bring up children.
The question I continually asked myself during these difficult years was: “How did I get here?” One minute I'd been living in a nice house, driving a nice car, leading a nice lifestyle in a nice part of the city. The next, whoomph! Pretty much overnight, I was a single mother and wondering what hit me. But the truth was I had only myself to blame. Up to this point, I'd taken no responsibility whatsoever for my financial destiny. Saving & investment? B-o-r-i-n-g! Financial spreadsheets. You what? Monthly outgoings? Ask my husband. Truth was, I hadn't the first clue how to manage money, how to invest money, how to grow money. It just wasn’t something that had been on my agenda. I’d been walking into disaster with my eyes wide shut, blindly hoping for the best. If I hadn't found this out when my marriage broke up, I sure as hell would have found out when I hit retirement age.
I spent the next few years reading everything I could get my hands on. I bought books, signed up to newsletters, attended workshops, and sought out mentors. I was working full-time, as well as evenings and weekends, to make ends meet. But in what little free time I had, all I did was study.
First, I set up my own publishing consultancy to help authors write and market their books. Then, because I knew it was important to have multiple streams of income, I learned to trade equities, commodities and Forex. I was thrilled when several years later, I was taken on as a coach at one of the UK’s leading trading schools.
Things seemed to be taking a nosedive in 2008, when I was faced with a year of health challenges. But that difficult period again turned out to be a blessing in disguise. It not only prompted me to write this book, but I also co-founded The Millionaire Bootcamp for Women – and invited 10 millionaire speakers from around the world to share their top secrets and strategies with other women.
Hurdles? There have been plenty along the way. I’ve made stupid mistakes that have lost me money. I've placed trades that have gone belly-up. I’ve launched projects that have failed to make a penny. Countless times, I’ve felt so crushed that I’ve wanted to give up. And always, there’s been a nagging guilt that I haven’t been a good enough mother because I’ve had to spend so much time working.
High points? If you seek out help, you find it. You eventually find an answer. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the kindness of numerous mentors who were happy to share their expertise - a half-hour here, lunch there, numerous phone calls. I’ve learned powerful tips and strategies that would have taken me years to discover on my own. There have been the friendships I've forged with other entrepreneurs on a similar path. Every day, I’ve grown in knowledge and experience. Slowly, but surely, I’ve come to understand the principles that seemed so incomprehensible when I first heard them. Most rewarding is the awareness that I’m a role model for my three children. They too can take control of their destiny. They can one day choose a life that makes their hearts sing.
Pretty much every millionaire I've spoken to in this book has a story of hardships or personal challenges overcome. Every journey has been different, yet somehow similar. It’s not so much about the ‘how’ as the ‘why’. Whatever situation you are in today, I hope this book will offer you insights and inspiration. You too can change your circumstances and lead the life you dream of. Just make the decision today. Every journey, no matter how long or far, begins with a single step.
