Do something (fixing
bicycles; making even faster pasta meals; delivering ‘road to recovery’
consultancy; providing genuine WWII equipment for films) better than anybody
else. Get into the top 10%. And then have the courage to charge what you are
In times of money madness, remind yourself of the Four Ms: Measure your money. Know where it all it is. What comes in, what goes out. Every tiny standing order. Every cent in the drawer of your desk. Track it all. Manage it. Is it all being used to best advantage?
If not, move it.
In order to best mutiply it.
1. Increase your value. Don't work longer hours, simply ensure everything you do - from running a meeting to writing a report - is done to a higher, rarer standard.
2. Earn money while you are not working. Create a product that can be sold and does not need your time. A book is a classic such idea.
3. Get all your current money to work for you. Reduce debt. Maximise savings and local tax saving schemes.
4. Ask for more money and find out what needs to be done to increase salary. Deserve it.
5. Need less money by rationalising the house-hold expenditure.
