Get Your Money $hit Together Day 17 Activity
Pay for Play in a Gig Economy
WELCOME TO PART TWO!!!
Beginning today, your activities on paper begin to reduce and become simple, quick answers you can use to boost your implementation of your financial strategies. Today you begin the second half of the Get Your Money $hit Together Challenge. The good news is, you have done all the digging and potentially uncomfortable “looking” at your money stuff and now you are ready to dive deeper with each new lesson.
So here is how this works.
Each day beginning now, you will have one area of your “Money $hit” to review, adjust, consider, and if necessary, change. Since you already did the work to collect the data, now all you do is consider one aspect of your now WRITTEN desires and fine tune your financial life so it matches more and more closely to what you want your life to be.
Remember, the goals of each module beginning today are to look back at what you have done, look forward at where you are going, and fine tune one aspect of the plan each day until it looks exactly like YOU want it to look.
What to do:
- Answer the question prompts below.
- Review your answers
- Write into place any needed shifts, changes, or new information you discover.
- Implement the element of the day.
- Celebrate you!!!
Day 17: Gig Economies
Going deeper: Questions to help you implement a piece of your plan
- What is something you are naturally talented to do? What is something for which your friends/family often come to you for help?
- Make a list of all the skills you have. Which of these skills are sellable (this means someone would pay you to do it for them)?
- How much would you like to get paid for contributing this skill?
- Does this skill have potential for you to turn it into a paid gig? (aka is there a market for it?) How will you share this skill? What will it take to do this?
- What is your desired income from offering this skill?
- How many gigs would you need per week/month to reach your income goal using this gig? Is this feasible? When will you start?
Great work! Now choose your focus and go BE it! You’ve got this!!!!
SET YOUR ENVIRONMENT FOR SUCCESS
Prepare your space so you will not be interrupted. Use your favorite scents, sounds, and temperature so you will feel supported by your environment. Set a timer and write for an amount of time that feels good to you. I usually choose 27 minutes because I love that number. Don’t feel compelled to answer everything in that time. Just write. You can set the timer as many times as you need to finish. At any time you feel tired or like you do not want to keep writing, take a break for now. Decide when you will return to writing, and keep that small promise to yourself when that time comes. That’s it. You are ready to complete this activity. Enjoy!!
Sometimes when you begin to imagine your dream life, you may find some blocks coming up that limit you from believing what you want is possible. For now, allow yourself to dream. Don’t worry about “how.” Funding your dream starts with opening to all possibility before we judge any options. Pretend that anything you can imagine is possible, and go all in imaging all the ways you could fund your dream. If you find you need support in this, reach out and our team will help direct you to the best support for your needs we know.
When working through this lesson, you may wish to have a bit more on the subject.
I recommend chapter 12 of my book “The Money Shot” called “Diversify your income” for a longer read on this topic.
If you are looking for the specific strategies for increasing income, check out “The Money Makeover” a simple read with lots of value.
You may also check out Robert Allen’s book “Multiple Streams of Income” for even more.

Tips for ways to complete this exercise
- Solo—doing this alone and with plenty of space is preferred, at least in the first round. Spending time with yourself can offer you some deep insight into what you want when there is no one else to please with your choices. I recommend doing this solo as a first pass, and then getting into some activities you enjoy with people you love and see what else comes up for you that you didn’t think of before. Maybe you discover you love roller blading and want to live where there is a place to go near you home. That would be a great wealth component to add.
- Partnered—once you have given this some thought by yourself, you may wish to engage someone to share your vision with. For some, the vision is too delicate to share, and that is okay. Share it with your mirror. There is value in sharing what you want out loud and receiving support from those who listen. Be sure to set the stage for success, however. Choose someone who will support your vision and dreams, and not someone who will judge you or try to insert their idea of your dream. This is a listening exercise…and just maybe you can dive in together and do a bit of crazy dreaming together if you want to expand your ideas a bit.
- Group—again, after some personal reflection, it can be powerful to bring your vision before a small group and receive love and support for what it is you are creating. Doing this exercise with a group holds the power to create collective energy for your dream life. Keep in mind, as with partners, it is critical that all members of the group are there to support only. This is your vision. Allowing a group to expand your ideas is awesome. Letting a group tell you what is best for you is not. Hold to your own feelings and decision about your dream as you step deeper into your wealthy life. You’ve got this!!!
