Reality check

Reality Check!
I hear so many people complain about how they do not have the money to invest into their own business. ...Really? I mean, if you were to sit down and look at your budget, expenses and then the money you use to buy un-needed items/services, you are really going to tell me that you cannot invest $50 a month into a business of your own, that could eventually turn into more then a fulltime income from home?!?!?!???

How many of you smoke cigarrettes, drink alcohol, gamble, get professional pedicures & manicures, rent movies, buy coffee in the morning, buy a newspaper even though you have the internet and cable for news updates, pay for cable tv, and the ultimate EAT OUT.

Okay, so lets just see how much all this would be :
Cigarrettes - $5.50 - $8 (one pack)
Alcohol - $8.50 - $20 (12 pack of beer/1 bottle wine, or hard liquor)
Gamble - $20 (slots)
Pedicures/manicures - $30-$50 each 1x mo
Movies: $1 (redbox) $5 (blockbuster)
coffee: $2 - $6 (depending where you get it 711,starbucks,etc)
newspaper: $2.50
Cable Tv: $50-$150
Eat Out - $25 (family of 5- fast food) $85 (restaurant)

 Total: $174 - $396 - Now this is only based off of the fact that you ONLY buy 1 of each - so in a months time 1 pack of ciggarettes, 1 12 pk of beer, 1 time out to the casino, 1 movie rented , 1 pedicure/manicure, 1 coffee, 1 newspaper, 1 time eating out and obviously your cable bill is monthly.

Could you imagine now if you did this stuff on a weekly or even a daily basis, oh my Goodness, you would be spending so much money on items/services that are not a neccessity.

So what are the facts: if you were to cut out even HALF of these expenses you would still have $87 - $198 in your pocket. Do you know what that money could do for your ENTIRE family and your life if you were to take that and invest it into a network marketing business, such as Ameriplan. Of course you would have to put alot of your time in, however, $87 could not only allow you to OWN the business, but have money to make sure you always have a customer/client base to speak with on a daily basis.

What I am trying to say, re-evaluate your expenses, cut out the stuff you really do not need. Make a few sacrifices. Ask yourself if you really have to have this, this month? I am sure the answer will be no. In just one or even two years time, you will see what a difference you have made, not only in your financial area of your life, but just who you are as a human being, as a spouse, as a parent, etc. This can benefit you in many different areas of your life.
