The Power of Time, Talent, Treasure & You!

I had an opportunity a few weeks back to speak “as the keynote”, for the Financial Planning Day event sponsored by the City of Virginia Beach and the Financial Planners Association of Hampton Roads.  My goal was to empower the room with economic solutions, principles and values to help “John and Jane America” make smart choices with their money and to build wealth for their households.  Now, as a person who enjoys “spending” money, I was challenged to share fiscal accountability choices…that would make my accountant proud.  But heck.. I am “The Career Engineer” and like most of you , I work hard, play hard and enjoy having BIG fun; however, I want to ensure my financial posture…is SECURED!   Yes, there lies my struggle 🙂  So in keeping  true to form; I  shared our “fiscal, career, business and life  prosperity formula…the TCE Way!”  Yes, I am proud to say, it was a hit …so now let me share it with you.  Let me know what you think …and I look forward to your comments and questions.

The Power of Talent:  “You Can’t SELL, What You Don’t Know” 

  • Now is the Time to Use Your Gifts and talents aka “knowledge skills and abilities” to generate multiple streams of income.
  • It’s Deeper Than a Job…it’s about transforming our thinking and actions to the mindset of a becoming a Career Entrepreneur.
  • Work Your Career Progression Like It’s a Business (marketing, technology, quality assurance, performance, profits and more).
  • It’s This Type of “Thinking and Doing” that generates income…for life.

 The Power of Time: “Invest Time vs. Spending Time…There is a Difference” 

  • You Can Make More Money, buy more things, even gain new friends…but the allotment of time is something you NEVER get back.
  • When You SPEND Time in a Relationship, you are in a consumer mindset (hence the word CONSUME).  When you INVEST time in a relationship…you expect something back (hence the word investment.)
  • ROI is Critical in Your Use of Your Time.  Be careful where you invest your time (people, places, data and things).

 The Power of Treasure: “It’s Not What You Make, It’s What You Keep”

  • Our Economy has Changed, so Should We.  Financial sustainability aka as YOUR economic policy for your household …100% rests with you.
  • We HAVE  To Plan for Success.  Now here is the good news, you can change it, increase it, build wealth, tap into resources and create legacy.
  • Think About the Power 10.  By INVESTING and not SPENDING as little as 10%, (a dime out of every dollar) is a great way to build your future.

 The Power of Now:  It’s Time to Make Monday Mornings….Better!”

  • Now is the time to ACT.  Make sure you INVEST your Time, Talent and Treasure to build your powerful economic plan.
  • If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes. Remember the universal law, “If there is NO SEED, there is NO HARVEST”. Don’t expect to grow anything if you have not planted anything.
