1: It’s not how much you earn, it’s HOW you spend it.

Yep it really is not about how much you earn. The real key is how you spend it. Most people burn through thier paychecks as soon as they get them. Same for affiliate marketing,as soon as most people make a commission,they will spend it on the next shiny object. Do not do this!!

Start making it a habit to put even small commisions aside for bigger and better things down the road. Once you start earning more commisions then you can take that savings and upscale your business.This is one of the things taught here.Decide where you want to use this fund on, whether it’s a course or workshop to improve your skills - or an asset that will generate passive income for you over time. As an example I just recently took some of my small commissions and bought 4 more domains. All are assets that will continue to grow and produce even more passive income for me.

2: Trim up your budget and fill the leaks

Pretty self explanatory but none the less important. You don't think you can,think again. What about that 3 dollar Starbucks coffee? Or that 12 per month Netflix account? Is a cup of coffee worth your future? And if you’re feeling bold enough, you could even increase the percentage of your savings every few months.It can be done to automatically be deducted into savings for you .You get to increase your investments for a better future without having to sacrifice your standard of living to much.When you set up your savings this way, you’re not giving yourself much of a choice. It’s either you live with what you have, or go broke.
I know that sounds harsh at first, but this strategy pays for itself IN SPADES.
Never underestimate the cumulative powerof cutting unnecessary costs from your life.That starbucks coffee ADDS UP!!

Build it up and put it to USE - Like a 6 month or year membership to Wealthy Affiliate.

So right, it's either a "Fixed" r a "Growth" mindset.
