How To Have More Money To Play With

We’ve worked on our guilt-free impulse spending and set up the systems, what we need to stop doing, what we need to do with, how to have it in a smart manner. But how do you make sure that you continue to have more money to have fun with to have that guilt-free impulse spending? That’s what we’re going to talk about today. And the final part of the guilt-free impulse spending series, here we go.

This is the Your Money Your Life podcast. I’m your host, Aimee Cerka, a money confidence coach for female entrepreneurs on the path to six figures. After over 10 years in the personal finance industry and multiple personal financial and medical crisis. I was fed up with the lines that are being shouted from the rooftops by the Guru’s and the media said I help you simplify, solidify and scale your money. By blending tactile money strategies with mindset work, you can create unstoppable finances together, you’ll finally figure out the money thing so you can make more money in less time without living off of beans and rice, or sacrificing your lifestyle. Episodes here on the podcast are short and sweet. Being married, having four kids at home, homeschooling being the CEO running the household. I’m kind of busy. And I know you are too. So let’s keep it simple and get to the point. Welcome. I’m so glad you’re here!

Welcome back to the Your Money Your Life podcast. I’m your host, Aimee Cerka.You made it! We are here; we’ve made it through the guilt free impulse spending series. Today is the final part we talked about.


The first episode, what impulse spending is why we do it. The second one what we had to stop doing haphazard impulse spending. The third one, we talked about the 24-hour rule and the two types of impulse spenders, the big ticket versus a small purchase item. The fourth part, we talked about your play count that fun within your budget specifically to go have fun with your money.

And then we did a bonus episode last time on the simplified version and the simplified way to use and maximize your Play account. And I’ve heard that word was really helpful for a lot of people. And we’ve made it today.

All of that works, all of the strategies and feeling guilt-free impulse spending. And we can feel that weight lifted off of our shoulders, right that, but it’s just the beginning. And to be able to make that work last and to be able to compound, we have to talk about the unstoppable finances framework.

And this is where the unstoppable finances framework comes in. It’s a four-step framework, that is my signature framework that we use. And we talked a lot about my story in the first part of this series, and maybe you’ve heard all this, and maybe you hear me, maybe you don’t maybe you don’t really believe it.

Because you know, you’re kind of feeling like, this is just the way it is where I’m doing the best I can. I just have to get to this income level first, and then everything’s gonna work out. But regardless, there’s a feeling of hopelessness that’s created. And I don’t want that for you because you are unstoppable.

Offense: Making Money in All Forms

And let’s walk through the framework together. And I’ll kind of show you what we’re talking about and where I see most people get tripped up on this process. So the first part of the unstoppable finances framework is offense, that’s making money and all forms, that’s your business as a side hustle.

That’s a traditional nine to five investments. Cryptocurrency, whatever it might be, offense is making money. And that’s the part you’re already doing. Yeah, you can do it better. But that’s the part you are doing. That’s the part that we get stuck on, and we get focused on, because we can see it. Okay, it feels like that’s the next thing. But it’s only one part of the framework. The second part is defense.

Defense: Managing What You Already Have

The second part of the framework is defense. And this is where our budget comes into play that play account that we’ve talked about, because your defense is managing what you already have. This is where spending money comes in that play account, again, your budget, again, your Play account that managing what we have the fact that you’re not focused on your debt payoff that we’re focusing on our net worth.

Hopefully you’ve heard me talk about that because that’s really key. That’s the defense that’s where a lot of the traditional budgeting, money management comes from. Okay, that’s the tactical, most of it right? The defense but it’s the other two parts that make everything work. Okay.

The Battlefield: Money Mindset and Economics

So the third part of the unstoppable finances framework is the battlefield. That’s where money mindset comes in the economics the rules of the game and you work on the battlefield without even realizing it. Because the fact that you have the Play account in place so that you know what you can go spend, have that freedom to be able to go spend.

That is it’s a money mindset strategy, the fact that we started with working on figuring out what those triggers are the things that are showing up for you that you need to be aware of, that maybe you’re holding on to and you don’t need to hold on to anymore. That is all money mindset. It’s all related to the battlefield, the fact that you’ve tried to outwork the numbers, that’s a money mindset thing.

But we also have to be aware of the economics, the economy, how things function in the world, like we, a lot of us weren’t taught by our parents growing up about money. And even if they were like, fantastic, the world that your parents grew up in is not the world that you grew up in. Like, even last 10 years, so much has changed, the things we learned in the past, have come are irrelevant.

This is why you should not be stocking three to six months worth of expenses in a savings account for your emergency fund. It’s just not smart anymore in the economy that we live in, you have to be able to understand the economics not from a place of feet, but from a place of empowerment, because you are unstoppable. And that’s the third part, okay, is the battlefield, we’ll work on releasing that old money mindset blocks, or at least becoming aware of them so that they don’t stop us any longer.

Coaching: Accelerating Growth with Support

But the thing the fourth and final part, the part that really makes mark the part that ties it all together, the current that makes the battlefield, the money mindset work really like actually work is coaching. Because even professional athletes have somebody with them to help them review the footage, okay. And it doesn’t matter what you do if your art if you’re not able to stay consistent and the action and do stay consistent the action so many times we need that outside support that willpower that we have, yes, you are the go getter, you can do this.

But there are a lot of things, calling your attention that need your help. And having somebody alongside to help you accelerate your growth is key with the coaching. So we’ve done the work now to understand how we can guilt-free impulse spend.

While we did it, we put the systems in place so that we can impulse spend, we got the Play account, so we know how much we can impose spend. But the boundaries in place and the systems are there. We’re working on understanding why we’re doing these things.

We’re not doing it just out of emotion, we’re doing it smart to be able to make those strategic answers those strategic moves. But if that’s where things stop, we’re not going to see the long term success because it’s only part of the problem. You’ve done the work here, let’s continue to do the work to improve your finances.

So like we mentioned, I don’t know that I’ve mentioned this since the first part of the series, but April was Financial Literacy Month. And you’ve got two options.
