Philosophical Conversation

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 275-October 2 “Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn’t, then it is of no use.”—Carlos Castaneda I had an interesting philosophical conversation one evening with a man I met in a restaurant. (Okay, a man I picked up in a bar.) I often get into conversations about the meaning of life and the nature of reality with people, since I think that’s one of the most important things to figure out while we’re here on the planet. I remember telling him about my philosophy of choosing … [Read more...]

You Don’t Have to Know Everything

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 274-October 1 “When in charge ponder. When in trouble delegate. When in doubt mumble.”—Unknown I used to think I had to know everything myself. What a mad scramble that was. When I was president of the Los Angeles Chapter of National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), I had to get over that idea—fast. There was just too much to do, and a lot of it was beyond the scope of my capabilities.

Enough I say. Get some help. It consistently amazes me how people wear themselves out re-inventing the wheel. Over and over again. Like nobody ever had this problem before and you have to figure it out all by your lonesome. Who told you that? I admit it took me just about forever to figure this out. Now, every time I need to know something that I don’t know, I just find out who does know and go ask them. When I wanted to learn to ski—I signed up for ski … [Read more...]

Marge Morning

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 270-September 27 “You must lose a fly to catch a trout.”—George Herbert Marge Thompson is my bookkeeper. She is a smart businesswoman from Central America with one of those melodious honey voices that lulls you just listening to her. An ace bookkeeper, she efficiently crunches all my numbers one morning per month. I look forward to “Marge Morning.” I feel quite pampered when she comes, especially since I’m a bookkeeper myself. I could certainly do my own books and save money—right? Wrong. My goal, my mission is to help people make more money and have more time off for fun. Performing tasks like … [Read more...]

Protect Your Supply

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 269-September 26 “Life is a never-ending stream of possible activities.”—Alan Lakein In this wonderful age of freedom and opportunity, there are so many wonderful career, business, hobby and entertainment choices it is easy to over-commit one’s time, energy, and resources. Everyone wants to have it all—today. How many people do you know who are tired and worn out because of too many “to dos” on their “to do” lists? When I was president of a business organization, prior to the start of each board or committee meeting, a group of us would talk while we waited. The conversations went like this: Woman … [Read more...]
