Going Shopping vs. Going Spending

Today’s Affirmation: “I have all the riches I desire right now!”
A major “Money Malady” is “spending bulimia,” which is a habit pattern of buying things out of impulse, without regard to chosen spending priorities.

Market Research

Today’s Affirmation: “People are clamoring to pay me for my wonderful services!”
It was 1990, and the recession was in full swing in California. I had survived in business one year after losing my biggest customer and most of my clients and friends knew about it.
