Our resident Financial Health Coach Chris Folland has some valuable thoughts on future-thinking during these interesting times for many of us.

Over to Chris…

When I was in law, I was working pretty hard. 

So much so that I didn’t even consider looking for side gigs or investment opportunities. 

Even though I didn’t have a whole lot of money, the investments that could have gotten me ahead seemed hard to figure out

I didn’t realize then that getting ahead comes with work gloves

I didn’t realize how hard successful people worked to get to the point of working less. 

Eventually, I got into an opportunity – our current business – where I really worked my tail off, and I realized how important it is to push through what initially seems too hard to figure out. It just might be a sign it’s an opportunity to go for. 1 

Because while Fi and I were once overworked and underpaid, now we’re underworked and overpaid. 

So, don’t be misled and think people have their success just at the snap of their fingers. 

Instead, look for the work gloves and put them on for the right opportunity

1The thing is that “success doesn’t happen by chance. It takes strategic actions in the right direction to get there.” We have to be willing to be undeterred by hard work and willing to put on the work gloves. It’s what got the people we admire to where they are, too.
