The New Years Resolution….

So, most of us have made New Years Resolutions, and yes, although I do need to shift a bit of weight I added on over the holidays, I made just one resolution. It is an achievable goal.

Force myself to be more motivated and accountable with my passive income work.

So in this regard, I signed up for a webinar and over the duration of the webinar I found some great gems of knowledge, the glaring one was people are 12x more likely to put it into practise if they pay for a course or similar. Mainly because they want to get their moneys worth. The other part was people are 75% more likely to succeed if they have paid for the course.

So yes, I did purchase something at a huge discount. Which had a bundled course included free that I had considered buying six months ago, but couldn’t justify to myself due to the cost. It ended up being cheaper to buy the product and get the course bundled in. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, now I have made myself accountable to earn back the cost of the spend. Not hard, it wasn’t a big spend.

Further progress on my debt reduction

The other thing is the continued reduction in my overall debt. I did receive a setback when putting in my overdue taxes that they fined me for being late. Fortunately they accepted my appeal that I had actually tried to do them and the tax agent I used hadn’t lodged them. The downside is that I have a tax debt to cover (I knew I had one which was why I put off putting in the tax returns) but I can organise a payment plan with the tax office and just get it paid down.

I have put as much as I can on the credit card and on the store card, and they are going down.

I have let the Etsy stuff slide for a bit, as the course I wanted to do was on Etsy so I wanted to be revisiting it in light of new and informed information related to selling products on Etsy – specifically digital downloadable files.

So, a new year has begun, and hopefully this year sees the debts finally cleared and we can start getting into wealth building!
