"Cap versus cash"
There's a ton of information coming on tonights show, so get out your notepads and get ready to fill your brains with some of that salary cap stew Davis has been cooking up for a few years now.
Don't be surprised if we hit you with a few of those gems from Pete Prisco on Russell Wilson from last week either, time permitting.
This episode is part of our FINANCIAL FIERCENESS!™ series! This episode is, “Why am I always living paycheck to paycheck even when I get salary increases?”
Be cautious about budgets. People may create “ideal” (or fantasy) budgets. The goal is attaining and sustaining financial independence so you need to increase your income (and income producing assets) and lower your expenses.
The title of this episode states that there is already more income yet they are still paycheck to paycheck. Thus, we should immediately focus on expenses. Remember, the path to financial dependance (aka “broke”) is to spend more money when you earn more money. Instead, you must simultaneously work to increase income (or revenue) while decreasing expenses. Focusing on decreasing expenses, you must do the opposite of the inclination (i.e., I got a raise so I can get the bigger satellite package, etc.).
This is my term for when I go through all of my expenses and cut costs (or increase my money that I have possession of). I take all of my required expenses (utilities, etc.) and my desired expenses (cell phone, etc.). I usually take 1-3 of the total list on each Money Day and do the following:
-Call the vendor.
-Have a timid demeanor.
-State, “I am not able to afford this. Will you please help me lower my bill?”
-I tell the customer service agent that I don’t want to cancel my service but I am just unable to afford it. If they do not make any acceptable reductions, I will then go to the cancellation department (usually an agent trained in retention of customers who will be able to offer better savings to me).
-Add up all of the money that I have saved each Money Day!
I have paid myself money that I was giving away and I am now moving closer to attaining and/ or maintaining financial independence!

People put themselves in positions they don't want to be in many times because they do not realize they have value. So they "accept" many things they hate as a result. They accept a low responsibility job. They accept low pay. This also goes into why some ignore education. They feel they have no value so education won't add anything to them. For those that do have an idea that they have some self worth, a decision has to be made on how much? You work hard, come to work on time, stay late, etc. Is that worth $10 an hour? $6 an hour? $20 an hour? People determine how much your life is worth, and you agree to it when you sign your name to the papers. People also determine how long you will work for the money they've decided to pay you. Have you worked on your job longer than 5 years? 10 years? 15 years? 20 years? Not many can say they've been on the same job 5 years in a row, and definitely not 10 years. A small few have been in the same job for 15 straight years. Are they truly earning what they are worth?
That's the question. How much is your life worth? Does it matter? Do you care? Do your children care? Why should you care? General discussion, call in if you have thoughts.
