Peace & Blessings,
I want to keep this blog post directly to the point. First, I want to thank all the customers that have supported 'The Rise Rashid Merchandise'!! I honestly can't put into words how grateful I have been seeing the diversity and growth in my customers. Thank you, beyond what I can explain, Thank you!!
If you are fortunate to receive a stimulus check, I hope it was a prayer answered and hope it has given you the opportunity to take care of business. The past year has been financially difficult on many individuals and families. These stimulus payments can be a relief if used correctly.
I read a post recently that said, 'getting money isn't a flex, managing money is". That same dollar you received can be more valuable to you than it is in the hands of mismanagement. I'm not going to act as if I have all the money management answers, we have all made our share of mistakes, but I do have some advise.
If you have debt, take a portion of your money and begin to pay it down. If you have an idea that you wanted to create but needed some extra money to do it, do it now or at least start on it. Buy yourself something that makes you happy... Something you may've seen while scrolling online and couldn't afford. Don't be ashamed to pamper yourself! This past year and years have been stressful and we've all earned a little pampering. Those are just a few of my suggestions, drop some of yours in the comment section of this blog.
Lastly, one of the best ways to stimulate the economy around you is shopping local and with small independent businesses. I'm not just saying this because I am a small business owner, but feel free to hang around my site and shop! But seek out some other small businesses that offer things of your interest and circulate those dollars through our communities.
Congratulations on surviving this mess so far, if you're reading this, you're either winning or still in the game. And you can be down in overtime, with 17 seconds left, down by 4, without the ball, and still win a championship.. lol
