Money vs Personal Development
by: Cherry

You will find lots of tips on the money issue elsewhere on this website. Just click the 'I Can't Afford It' link on the nav bar on the left.
These issues are best tackled with a combination of practical steps together with a review of your underlying beliefs about money.

I also recommend you take a look at Michael Neill's book, Money Made Fun. It is a great source of ideas and inspiration to help you overcome the 'money issue', which can often be a major (an sometimes imaginary) stumbling block for career changers. You will find more details here:

And for a different approach, try Emma Jones new book, Working 5 to 9: How to Start a Successful Business in Your Spare Time. It is packed full of ideas to help you set up a small enterprise outside your normal working hours that will generate a bit of extra income. Could be just the escape fund you are looking for - or your 'small enterprise' could grow into a full scale business in time.

Bottom line? Life isn't a rehearsal. If you know there are parts of you that you want to develop, start exploring now how you can do that. Whether this means revising your expenditure and starting to build your 'escape fund' now, so you can leave your job, signing up for a course or finding someone to discuss your development plans with ? just get going. If you wait till next year you will just be a year older and no further on, so start now.
