Something funny happens when we read personal finance books; some of us implement new ideas to promote change whereas others do nothing. If you do the latter (nothing), your wealth prospects will remain the same and potentially get worse. However, if you level-up and take my challenge–or create your own–you will achieve positive outcomes.
The 100-Day Wealth Challenge
Step 1: Buy and read Wealthier in 100 Days.
Step 2: Select a date–roughly one-hundred days out–to review your finances. Also, complete activities six, seven, and eight, i.e., Take Stock, Track Key Financial Data Points, and Create a Budget.
Step 3: Select and start seven additional activities (there are over 60 activities listed in the book) of your choosing and preferably one from each section–for example:
- Embrace Your Financial Self
- Get Your Family Onboard
- Buy During Seasonal Transitions
- Inquire About Tax Loopholes
- Collect Rental Income
- Don’t Get Appnesia
- Improve Your Credit Score
Step 4: After one-hundred days, evaluate your progress. Ask yourself questions like:
- What did you achieve?
- What financial habits did you adopt?
- How has your net worth and income changed one-hundred days later?
- Does your budget make sense and are you saving enough toward your goals?
- What topics do you need to learn more about?
- Where might you need professional guidance?
- What more needs to be done to achieve financial success?
Step 5 (Optional): Share your story. If you like, you can write a 700 to 1,000-word piece about your wealth challenge, send it to me, and I’ll post it on the site. You can detail the steps above, your journey, and anything else you would like to mention. For example, what financial tools you found useful. If you want your story to remain private, that’s fine too, and I won’t publish it. You can reach me at wealthchallenge[at]wealthierin100days[dot]com.
