Newsletter 4th January 2023: A little bit obsessive and my office woes 😊 & 55 ways to save money

by | Newsletters


In 2022 (it might have even been 2021 come to think of it) I decided to remodel my little office-above-the-kitchen room.

I found out IKEA will use their items to design your space for a modest sum.

I signed up for that and loved the design.

So far so good.

But the room needs a lot of work before the fun part of adding new furniture etc; old shelving had to be removed, walls replastered, flooring replaced, a radiator moved, everything redecorated and electrical work done because there are not enough points for equipment and the wiring must be at least 40 years old. The number of things I have plugged into extension cords can’t be a good thing.

First of all I tried to get a single company to take on all the work of remodeling my office. None of them I tried would quote for it.

Then I decided to get the work done by different tradespeople and coordinate it myself.

It made sense to do the electrics first. I called three electricians. Most of them didn’t respond to the messages I left. Two didn’t show up who promised to come and look at the room. One did and then didn’t ever submit a quote despite taking away my IKEA room plans.

Thanks, Mr. Electrician. I was glad I had a copy.

Anyway, at that point, I gave up and I’m still living with my office exactly as it was to this day.


I didn’t care enough.

The room is my own little space. It serves me well.

I think to succeed at anything, you have to become a little bit obsessed with it. And not give up until you get the job done.

Are there electricians out there?

There are and they are all doing work, all day every day.

Other people are having electrical work done.

They continued to call people and ask for quotes until they engaged an electrician whereas I gave up.

It’s the same in business.

You have to become a little bit obsessive.

You have to care enough about your success to continue when things get tough.

You have to care enough.

What are you going to get a little bit obsessive about enough to succeed this year? 💖

christmas deals 2022

Once again Alessandro Zamboni has come out with a low cost ($17) package containing all of his training products from the whole year – 26 of them.

Normally with something like this I’d step right on by, because how can one guy (even if he runs a team) be a master of so many different things?

He can’t!

So why do I happily spend those dollars?

I buy, because he has basically done the research for 26 different streams of revenue and gives you a plan for how to succeed with each one.

You then have to test and implement, but as I was saying the other day, you have to test whatever you learn anyway.

I love the variety of options in this package.

A treat for any entrepreneur to think of the possibilities as the year turns. Just be sure to be selective and not try every one of the 26 methods!
