Your mortgage, home ownership, debts, income, investments, property, children and future plans are not separate topics …
at CleveDoesMore we consider them to be crucially interconnected parts of your overall financial life.
Many people mistakenly think that boosting cashflow always requires them to earn more money. While this is one way to get to the goal, it is not the only way. In many cases, boosting your cash flow is more of a mental exercise than a physical activity. What I mean by this, is that choices made with the money we have can often be just as beneficial as bringing in more cash when it comes to our financial health each month. With that being said, I wanted to play a fun game, and give you exercise for your mind with a short riddle.
Think you know the answer? The answer lies at the very end. In the meantime, let’s get back to our initial discussion because boosting your cash flow is much like solving this riddle. How, you may ask?
Some people will look at their finances much like you looked at this riddle. The details of what they have to work with will be clear, but the solution may still seem confusing. However, once the answer is revealed, most people will smile and immediately wonder why they didn’t see that to begin with. Cashflow is exactly this way.

Another way to think of cash flow, is like playing the game of chess. Each move you make results in either a positive or negative for your team! Those who are best at strategy and often win the game of chess have the ability to look forward far enough to see how each move will affect their overall position. Let me give you a real-life example…
One of my clients, Henrietta, felt like she was stuck in the area of cash flow. She had a job that she loved, but it was a salaried position that didn’t ever offer overtime or provide any extra earning potential, creating a relatively fixed income situation. She didn’t see any way to increase the leftover cash at the end of each month, despite her best efforts. However, after taking a look at her overall financial picture, CleveDoesMore was able to highlight a few strategic moves that would allow her to change her financial position slightly, creating more free cash each and every month. Henrietta’s riddle was solved!
