The Deal Savings Mindset
As an entrepreneur, every dollar counts. A few weeks ago, I applied for my CVS Pharmacy card. Little did I know that it would come in handy today as I was shopping for a quick meal to purchase. When I shop, I like to think of how can I stretch my dollars to last for a longer time than expected. I mastered this technique while on tour last year, The Revolutionizing Pimping Tour, only having a stipend of $2,000 per month that I received from my tour sponsor that I had to use on lodging, transportation and meals while traveling non-stop.
As I'm walking down the different grocery aisles in CVS Pharmacy, I noticed bright yellow tags underneath each item. I was on the cereal aisle and thought to myself, 'I can eat cereal any time of the day.' I started to browse different cereal brands and saw that with Honey Smacks there was a deal to buy 2 for $5.
Wait a damn minute... Five dollars?!?!
It seemed like I couldn't walk fast enough from the grocery aisle to the front at self-checkout! I was amazed! All I could think of is how much money I could save in 3 days just from eating Honey Smacks cereal.
When your current funds are used solely for the growth of your business but also for you to survive until revenue is generated, you are programmed to think differently about how you spend your funds. Every transaction is accounted for and documented mentally so that you aren't getting out of control with your spending.
My business, The Corporate Pimp, is truly my passion. I love helping people achieve success in their career endeavors! Every dollar that I have in my savings account is valuable because it not only reflects me but it reflects the success of my business and the clients I will help in the future.
Onward and upward to the education of the new school of hustle in pimping corporate America!
