Today I want to share with you some very important Money Habits I learned from a decade of being around some of the wealthiest people in Salt Lake.
When I was younger, I had NOTHING going for me. I was broke AF, had horrible habits around earning, saving, investing, spending.
But luckily a friend asked me to come work with him at the Salt Lake Country club where all the wealthy people hung out.
It sucked at first, scraping dishes, working 10-to-12-hour days and all the holidays, but over time I worked my way up to a server, then bartender, then into leadership.
You always hear bartending is where it at for building relationships, people drinking into the late hours, sharing all their secrets.
It was here that I found so many financial and life mentors that taught me so much.
I noticed that there was a BIG difference between how these people created wealth and what I had seen and been around my entire life.
Today I have a very cool story to share along with some great lessons that have to do with creating more financial abundance.
April Shprintz didn't know that her family was poor until another 6-year-old asked her these questions:
"𝘼𝙧𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙜𝙞𝙧𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙜𝙚𝙩𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙧𝙚𝙚 𝙡𝙪𝙣𝙘𝙝𝙚𝙨?"
"Why are your pants too short?"
"What does your dad do?"
And then it started making more sense. The donated food in the pantry. The trips to the WIC office.
It started to hit home that she was living in poverty and she was determined to do something about it.
At 6 years old she started her first business, selling 'magic blue rocks' that would fix the other kids problems.
That business was shut down pretty quickly after all the other kids spent their lunch money buying them.
But she was hooked! And that set her on a path to escape poverty.

I just dropped a Mindset Hackers episode with April and she shares:
