Mission Statement for Success

My Purpose
I started working with business consultant, Karen Knowler. Granted she is a Raw Food Coach (yes, I have been successfully living a raw foods lifestyle 65% for 3 weeks now), but this lady offers some powerful information that can apply to any business!

So, I started the first course, Brillant Branding, because I was considering starting a nutritional business (my other hobby – eating right). Then soon realized that I just have too much on my plate and it would not be optimal to find success under stress. Plus, Karen said something that made a lot of sense. Her consultant told her to do: FOCUS ON ONE THING YOU ARE REALLY GOOD AT.

Click! I had a lightbulb moment like Sharon @ Musings of a Midlife Mom had the other day. If I plan to start a solid business for success I first need to build a solid foundation for that business to stand on! AKA – I need to pay off my debt and build a good savings account.

Of course, it sounds like reiterated mumbo jumbo. But now it’s in perspective. I need to make paying off my debt (following Dave Ramsey’s Financial Plan) my one thing to become really good at! When I started Money Funk, it was to write about my family’s journey about getting out of debt. And I am aware that at times my focus teeters up and down. Now it is my mission to put it back into it’s main perspective. How? Write a Mission Statement.
