Happy 2014 – Set Yourself Up for Success with a Vision Board and Do it Online for Free

If you’re like me, every New Year you get all excited about a fresh start, a chance to make a real difference and an opportunity to succeed. Whether your goals are to get more involved in the local community, spend more time with your family or loved one(s), sell more travel or make more sales at your job or perhaps to start your own business – the 2014 New Year is the perfect time to start working on whatever milestones and accomplishments spell success for you.

In various documentaries, magazine articles, team builders and in passing, I’ve heard a lot about “vision boards” over the years and while I pretty much knew what a vision board was, I also knew the time involved to create one. Not only the time but many people have a creative side that comes out in their vision boards, which I very much lack. 

Clipping pictures from newspapers and magazines, assembling letters and numbers and positioning them perfectly on a board – looks like a lot of fun but honestly, not my cup-o-tea. I’ve talked to people who swear by their vision boards so I definitely wanted to create one. It all makes perfect sense – put your goals, the things you want to experience and succeed at out into the world, for everyone to see. For you to see, every day.

Well, I finally found a solution – a website that allows you to create a digital vision board! This solution still requires you to put in the time and to organize your thoughts and goals and to really think about what’s important to you but it’s a free tool anyone can use – even if you aren’t so artistic.

I’ll provide more details about the tool below but for those of you who may not be familiar with vision boards and what they are, do or can accomplish, allow me to explain:

What is a vision board?

A vision board is a tool, a constant reminder that you create which can help you clarify and focus on specific goals. Quite literally, a vision board is any kind of board where you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do, accomplish or have in your life. 

What’s the point of a vision board?

Well, basically, we are all busy people and most of us beg for more time in each day, right? We’re also constantly being distracted – especially today. We have laptops, desktops, work computers, tablets, iPads, smart phones, xbox systems, alarm clocks, smart watches and other devices, not to mention people, who want to instantly connect, at any time. 

A vision board will help you to:

  1. Figure out what your vision is
  2. Serve as a reminder and daily affirmation
  3. Keep you focused on your true intentions

1. Figure out what your vision is

So you say to yourself, “I want a better life for me and my kids”. That’s a great goal, but have you really thought about all that entails? Let’s try a different approach – get more specific, think about tangible consequences of “a better life”.

In order to create your vision boards, go and search for pictures that represent specifics about your better life! Narrow it down to thinks like a new home or new car. Maybe your idea of a better life is being able to travel the world – if so, pictures of the places you want to go and things you want to see are great for your vision board!

2. Daily Affirmations
Once you dream it up, you have to believe it! Start with images but also include words, phrases and sentences that affirm your intentions. Include inspirations quotes, motivational tid bits and things like “I am as healthy as ever!”, “I’m free of debt and financially secure!”, or “The best opportunities always present themselves to me!”

3. Stay Focused

We all wake up in a great mood and start each day with that “go gettum” attitude but how quickly can that attitude be shot all to hell? You know, the person driving on the interstate like it’s a school zone or what about feedback from your boss on something you poured your heart into and was confident it was the best he’d ever seen? By utilizing a vision board, no matter what happens throughout the day, you’ll be constantly reminded of where you intend to be. This appeals to both your conscious and subconscious mind and can really work wonders at keeping you focused on the prize!

Ready to get started? Here’s the free website I found which allows you to create your vision board. They also provide detailed instructions and videos to help you along the way!

If you feel comfortable enough to share your vision board, please provide a link to it in the comments sections. Your vision board may be the inspiration needed for others to jump on board! 

Happy New Year to Everyone! I wish you nothing but the very best in 2014! You deserve it!

Get Exclusive Deals and Cash Back on Everyday Purchases You Make Online for Free

Being a home based travel agency having started my business just a short while ago coupled with the fact that I started with 0 clients, means I am constantly looking for ways to save money. Every dollar I save means an extra dollar I can put towards the cost of running my business. Since I assume every home based travel agent out there hopes to save money, I’m sharing one of the many ways I accomplish this – through a free money saving and deal consolidating website membership called Fat Wallet.

I’ve made it a habit to check Fat Wallet before making any and all purchases online. Regardless of what merchant you’re buying from, chances are they are a part of Fat Wallet’s extensive list of participating businesses. Not only can you find exclusive deals available only to Fat Wallet members and subscribers but you also receive cash back on purchases varying from 2% to 25%+. Your cash back is credited usually within 10 days after you make the purchase on the merchants website and you can cash out to your bank account or via PayPal whenever you want.

How Does Fat Wallet Work?

It’s simple, once you register using the link below, each time you’re about to make an online purchase, login to your Fat Wallet account and check to see if the merchant you’re buying from participates on Fat Wallet.

  1. Type the name of the business in the search box, click “Go”.
  2. Check out the deals, coupons and forum posts to see if there is an offer that relates to your purchase.
  3. On the results page, look for the company and the % cash back available. Click on “Shop Now”. 
  4. In the window that pops up, feel free to add a note to remind you of the purchase.
  5. Shop as you normally do on the merchant’s website.
  6. After your order has had a chance to process, ship and payout, check your Fat Wallet account for payment.
Search for the merchant you plan to make a purchase from
Add a note to help you remember the purchase.

Only looking at purchases I’ve made over the last 30 days has earned me over $30 bucks! That’s $30 free dollar bills I would have never received had it not been for Fat Wallet! I encourage you to try it out, implementing a quick trip to Fat Wallet’s website as often as possible! Leave any comments or questions in the comments section below and make sure you share your tips for saving money too!
