How to stay motivated with a long term financial goal There are some financial goals that don't happen overnight, and in fact they can take years and years to achieve. For example you might be working towards paying off your debts or saving for a house deposit.

Chocolate Cookie Bears I'm getting a late start today, so here's a recipe from my archives. If you have small kids to bake with, you really should give this a try. It's been a hit with 100% of the kids who have visited my house, not to mention my own kids!

The List That's More Important Than Your To-Do List Because from a clean place where I'm thinking as if I'm the person who has those results, I feel and act very differently. If I stayed thinking the same thoughts that got me to six figures, it doesn't matter how much action I take, I won't create seven figures.
