Money is a funny old thing isn’t it? We can have a little or a lot, but it’s never enough. Quite often we’re unaware of how much money we have because it’s not liquid. But just because it isn’t sitting in your wallet as paper or numbers on a screen when you check your bank balance doesn’t mean that it isn’t yours. Just as businesses have issues with liquidity and must liquify their assets to turn them into cash, so too the average household has drawers, shelves and cupboards stuffed with money in the form of assets. Businesses and households both need liquidity. Liquidity is what gets bills paid on time and what helps us pay for life’s little adventures. If you’re in need of quick cash to pay for an unexpected expense or have a special occasion to save up for, now’s the time to collect what’s owing to you and raid your home for assets which can be turned back into cash…
It’s about time you made that personal injury claim
Remember that accident you were in last year that wasn’t your fault? You toyed with the idea of making a claim, but as time went on you thought maybe that time had run out or that you didn’t want to make a fuss. If you still get twinges or stiffness every now and then, you’re still likely feeling the effects of this collision and you owe it to yourself to pursue justice. Visit GetLegal.nyc and get the ball rolling. Your claim may result in restitution which can make getting by so much easier. Remember that by rule of thumb, personal injury claims need to be made within 3 years of the incident. Make sure that your time does not run out.
And it’s time to call in all those IOUs as well
All those people you’ve lent money to over the years? You let them off the hook because you didn’t want to alienate them. They may even have forgotten about the whole thing… But you haven’t. Now’s the time to get in touch and (politely) remind them what you’re owed. They will likely be mortified to have forgotten their debt to you and will be tripping over themselves to pay you back. Plus, it’ll be a much needed excuse to meet up for a catch up and a chat to reignite your friendship.
Are you a collector or are you a hoarder?
Many of us call ourselves collectors and amass rooms full of stuff which we proudly display on shelves or in cabinets. The trouble is that this stuff rarely brings us pleasure and we find that the more we acquire, the more we covet. Does your collection bring you joy? Or are you merely hoarding possessions in the hope that they’ll bring you fulfillment?
Go through your possessions and your collections with a fine toothed comb and sell the things that have stopped bringing joy and meaning to your life. Since you’re a serious collector and have looked after your belongings you may be pleasantly surprise to learn what they are worth!
Your home is full of money that’s yours… You just don’t know it yet!
