Whether you’re an avid baker or one that wouldn’t bet their life on the rise of a cupcake – we hope that this metaphor makes sense.
FINANCE IS JUST LIKE BAKING A CAKE
It starts with an intention – the desire to smell freshly baked farm-bread or cookies in your home. This represents the outcomes you desire from your money, the luxury spends, the holidays and moments your money can create for you.
THEN… We need the RECIPE and the INGREDIENTS. No cake will rise without baking powder. Without eggs, you’re likely to fail at this baking attempt. In a similar fashion, there are some essential ingredients to finance, which includes mindset (abundance or poverty mind), knowledge (to invest in the right vessels) as well as diversification.
The recipe – an age-old tested recipe in your mother’s cookbook – ensuring the PERFECT BROWNIES. In finance, that could be the advice of your trusted financial advisor or learning from the strategy “recipes” of the financial frontrunners. Don’t burn your financial flapjacks, learn from those that have mastered the skill!
Finally – the brownie or cupcake or flapjack needs to be baked for the PERFECT amount of time. Not too much, but not too little either. The timing of your financial decisions is crucial.
Have inspiration to TAKE HOLD OF YOUR FINANCES. Then… have the right ingredients, your mindset and your knowledge. Have the right recipe, learn from the greats. Bake it out, be patient when it counts and act swiftly when you need to. Then – ENJOY YOUR DELICIOUS FINANCIAL OUTCOME.
Finance is just like baking.
