In my business, I educate and teach my clients, Black women leaders, professionals and business owners, how to maximize their earning potential. It wasn’t until a mentor of mine, Pamela Jolly, had a chat with me, that I realized, I wasn’t maximizing my own earning potential.
See, you have to understand that we only have so long to be in our accumulation phase. The accumulation phase is the time you spend earning the money you will eventually use to retire. I want to help my clients make as much money as they can, during this phase, but I was neglecting my own phase. In typical Black woman fashion, I was putting myself last (after Ya’ir, after my business, after my clients…). Not anymore.
Another reason why this opportunity is so important to me and was the right situation for me to take advantage of was because when I first started coaching in 2009, no one knew the role of a financial coach. The role was nascent and the industry didn’t know how to monetize the position. I was doing this work before it was valued and before it became as popular as it is today. So, fast forward 7 years, and now, I am actually paid to do the work I love (outside of my business), have already been doing and have years of experience doing, and with a population that I have always wanted to work with is very rewarding for me.
Now, back to the 3E’s. I am leveraging my 3E’s to increase my income and diversify my income stream. Even though Reese Financial Services is growing, I realized I could be making more money by taking on a different situation. I call it a situation because I needed it to work for me, for Ya’ir and my business. And it did. I didn’t know how it would come, but when I started to pray on the situation and asked God to present it, I literally got an email in my inbox about this position. It, literally, came to me. Talk about divine order.
So, you want to know what the 3E’s are? You ready to do something similar? To welcome a new situation that works for you, your family, your business, and your goals? Read about it here. This is a sneak peek of, “Black Beautiful Abundant: An Income, Savings & Debt Guide For Black Women Leaders, Professionals & Business Owners Who Seek Financial Freedom,” the next E-book I am releasing within the next few weeks.
