Worried about the economy?
Tired of all the gloom and doom on the news?
Thinking no one will hire you or buy your products/services because it’s just a tough financial time for the global economy?
Let’s shift that thinking…
Today I’m sharing another great guest post with you from Shameca Tankerson, the Credit Savvy CEO.
Shameca and I have been around each other’s spaces online for a couple of years in blog challenges, but really connected and started getting to know each other when we enrolled in the same awesome coaching program a few months ago.

Back back to the topic at hand… why you’ve got to start thinking about (and creating) your OWN economy!
Guest post by Shameca Tankerson
Okay…I guess I’m a little indignant when it comes to the stories I here day in and day out regarding money. And I’ll get even more undignified than this. Every Where I go I hear the doom and gloom stories: “The economy is bad,” “The banks aren’t lending,” “People don’t have money to spend”…..
Well, I’m calling everyone on the carpet!
You tell me…
It’s time to tell the truth! Okay… I’ll start.
The truth: There ARE banks lending. There is Money available in more ways than you can imagine. But the majority of us good old Americans striving toward the American Dream (the pursuit of happiness) need that story to explain why we under charge for our services, don’t invest in our business growth, or why our business isn’t successful .
Are you driven by a Mask that is keeping in the realm of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results? Are you working in your business day in and day out to make enough money to take your vision to the next level… waiting on that next big deal or business model that will skyrocket your revenue?
Are you ready to wake up to and remove the mask and conditioning that is holding you back so you can get the funding you need to have the business and life you really want … No Excuses?
Step 1. Pull your own credit and see what is really going on. Know your score. Don’t be Scurred!
Step 2. Find your financial baseline. How much money do you need on a monthly basis to keep your business right where it is… to sustain. Hint: Pull out bank statements.
Step 3. If you don’t have six months cash cushion or a credit line equal to 6 months cash cushion. You need funding.
Step 4. Get the skinny… the real… the truth on business funding. Plug into my community http://www.facebook.com/creditsavvyceo (ha ha…shameless plug) but really learn what your options are and make informed financial decisions… ask questions and get in the know.
Step 5. Bonus: Charge what you are worth… Don’t look at other people’s business models to determine your pricing and don’t buy into the people aren’t spending money mentality. Why: It’s not true. This is the quickest way to stimulate your own economy. Some of the funding options available are based on revenue… don’t minimize your worth or your options.
Remember this: You have something of value to bring to the world.
