What Would You Do With a Quarter Million Dollars?

what would you do with a quarter million dollars?

What would you do with a quarter million dollars?

What would your life look like?

What would be different?

Where would you go?

What would you do?

Who would you be spend your time with?

THINK about this… it’s important. Because this blog post is about DREAM BUILDING!

It’s about giving your conscious and unconscious resources a target to focus on and to dream BIGGER.

The worst thing you can do is keep a dream alive that’s way too small…

Here’s What We Did with Our First Quarter Million Dollars

It’s official. We just crossed $250,000 in commission with our online business in just under 19 months since getting started!!! (Our results aren’t typical, click here to see average earnings)

Looking back it’s AMAZING to see what we’ve accomplished, and all the cool things the money has been able to do for us, and for others as well.

Because it’s not about the money… it’s about what you can DO with it!

Dream big my friends… and check out the 24 things we did in the last 19 months with $250,000 🙂

Vacation in Mexico

A full week of yoga, beach time, private chefs, and treetop bungalow… awesomeness! We remember this trip like it was yesterday (March 2013)

New Bed and Bed Frame

We used to sleep on a full size bed that I’d had for almost a decade and used all the way through college… it HURT to sleep on!

Taking Two Weeks Off When You Get Really Sick

That week we had our BIGGEST week ever in our online business!

This is SO SO SO magnifique! And something many people won't see is that behind the scenes (which I see from working alongside you) you have accomplished this with a generosity of spirit and kindness that is truly enjoyable. I remember a time when I would have looked at results like this with a certain tinge of anger, because I was stuck in the money 'matrix' of believing there fundamentally isn't enough to go round. As if some people having 'above average' wealth...must mean that others go without. So grateful to be part of this team which has helped me unravel this piece by piece and for your living example that the 'money matrix' is nothing more than an illusion many people believe in! And we can go BEYOND it!
