Bar Rescue or Bar Bootcamp?

Bar Rescue, at the time of this writing is two seasons deep, and moving toward a third. Airing on Spike TV, this “reality” show is currently one of my favorites.  If you have any interest in the bar and nightclub business this series is definitely worth watching.

Bar Rescue stars Jon Taffer, an industry big-wig who specializes in turning failing bars into lucrative establishments. At the beginning of each episode he sends one of his helpers into the featured bar to assess just how bad off it really is. (Read More)

How to More Efficiently Manage Your Money

Having and executing an efficient money management system is vital to attaining financial independence and creating wealth.  If you live in a country with laws that encourage financial independence, following the steps below will work to help you create a more efficient money management system and a more abundant life. 

 Take Responsibility for You Financial Situation

 Recognize that you created your current financial situation because of your choices and habits.  Consider the Law of Attraction.  A person must accept that only they had the power to create their current situation and that only they have the power to change it.  Until a person accepts this first step their ship will always be blown by the winds of habit and impulse.

Save Money

Saving money is the single most important part of creating an efficient money management system.  You must spend less than you earn and save the rest.  Save one thousand dollars in an emergency fund immediately then shoot to save 3 to 6 months of expenses.  Save 10% of your income every month at the beginning of the month.  If you can’t afford to save 10%, save what you can afford even as little as 1% to begin with and aim for 10%.  Eventually after following these steps you should try to save as much as 50% of your monthly income.  Save all money that comes to you unexpectedly aside from your regular income.  This can include bonuses, gifted money, repayment of a loan and other cash that you have lived without.
