Changing Our Financial Paradigm

In my parents’ time and in my early career we went to work and every Friday we received a paycheck.  We knew how much was going to be in that check and could plan our spending based upon that.

For many of us, the paradigm of a regular paycheck is no longer the case, if indeed it ever was.  Business owners, management consultants, hairdressers, real estate agents, wait staff, housekeepers, and bartenders, just to name a few, don’t receive a regular paycheck.

To be financially solvent and move toward financial success requires a paradigm shift in the way those of us in those professions think about and manage our spending.

Tony X. Lee’s just released book, The Bartender’s Guide to Financial Freedom, available on Amazon.com, addresses the associated issues by taking the reader through an easy to follow ten-step process.

Tony, a long-term bartender with a wide following, whose bar rescue successes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area are legendary, shares the lessons he learned first-hand, the tough way.

Leah Ward-Lee is a management consultant and business writer based in Fernandina Beach, Florida and Dallas, Texas and the author of $1,000 Start-Ups.  Her next book, The Executive’s Toolbox, will be released soon.

Leah Ward-Lee, the author of "$1,000 Start-Ups", is a serial micro-entrepreneur. She opened her first business at ten after lobbying for and receiving a shoe shine kit for Christmas. She pulled her wagon through the neighborhood, going door-to-door, offering to shine her neighbor’s shoes for twenty-five cents a pair. Once her wagon was full, she took the shoes home and polished them. Unfortunately that business was short-lived. She hadn’t tagged the shoes and couldn’t remember whose shoes were whose, so her dad went with her to retrace the route until every pair was returned. Since then she’s had businesses developing and teaching college courses, instructing aerobic classes, owning half a plane that was rented to a flight and maintenance school, and renting homes. She’s also owned a consignment store, a gift shop, a gift basket business, a consulting firm, hosted The Executive Toolbox (a weekly radio show), and a publishing company. She also spent twenty years in the US Army, served as the Chief Information and Technical Officer for two major insurance companies, and has a second career as a management consultant. Leah resides in Dallas, TX and on Amelia Island with Sammy and Goliath, her two rescue dogs.
