Energy Saving

Going on an appointment to save money on a client's energy bills... only charging £5 (should only take 10-15 minutes)... I reckon I'll save him around £200 per year. If you want me to perform a similar service please let me know :). I'm also available for online consultation.

Actually recieved £10 for doing it (he wanted to give me £10 plus free drinks and chocolate). Saved around £200 per year... by staying with the same provider! Enjoyable and ready to do again!

Everybody's doing what they think is best for Themselves!

This is a concept I've had for a while now... and I think it's interesting to write about.

Everything anyone says or does is what they think is best for themselves. Totally natural, nothing 'immoral' or 'wrong' about that. What you have to do is calibrate getting what YOU want when other people are trying to get what THEY want. One weakness I've had is to be thinking of other people's interests too much... for example giving them money saving advice when they weren't really interested in money. Waste of my time and theirs- I won't make that mistake in the future.

Thing is, if you can find smart people and you both want to get similar things, then you could well be more effective, so that's fine.

As you'll have seen from reading this blog, knowing what YOU want is crucial. If you have clearly defined written goals, and you WANT them, you're a long way there to winning.

This is going to be a quick post, as I'm currently listening to 50 Cent's "I Get Money"... and I want to get some more for fun. But quickly understand, this applies to everything. Christianity, people are 'doing good' to make themselves feel better and to be part of a 'nice community'. In most good sales places, people are doing everything they can to sell, make themselves feel good, and get money. It's quite fun watching it tbh.

Yeah, so done quick update now... will update again later. You'll have noticed I've now got a "DONATE NOW" button on my blog. It's because.... I'd like you to donate now :). Some money will make me more likely to keep writing quality content! Thanks in advance.
