Welcome to A Glass of Red! Every Wednesday I'll be taking happy hour to a whole new level and chatting about all things money, finances, investing, saving, etc. I hope you'll join in on the conversation by asking questions, as well as, offering your insights on these topics! We all need to help each other reach greater heights! So, have a glass of red and let's dive into the FIRST session of many to come! So exciting!
I’ve always been a planner, but when it came to money I didn’t have a clue. That’s until I started expanding my knowledge of finances and properly investing. Now, let’s hold up for a moment and understand that I am NOT a financial advisor, however, I have learned so much from our own personal financial advisors, and research over the last 2 years that I wanted to start sharing it.
When I say I’m busy working on my side business what do you think I mean by that? My art? My fashion blog? No (although I do legitimately work my art side hustle). I mean, I am working my investments! I am making my money work for ME. It’s the easiest job in the world because as I sit in the car and ride around during my full time job in med device sales my money is working for me at the same time. Do I see a future where Britny Robinson will one day soon not have to work her full time job because she has completely surpassed her income with her investments? YES. Will it be residual income? Also, YES. It all depends on how hard I make my money work for me. Honestly, I'm trying to stay focused and make a goal for myself to retire from working in 2-3 years with residual income coming in.
So, what do I mean when I say I’ve invested my money? Well, my husband and I have invested in a variety of different things. We have invested in various avenues through our advisors, and we have also invested in businesses on our own. There is one business that has truly been a game changer and has allowed us to save tons of money as well as make us money. Please reach out to me with any questions pertaining to this and I'll be happy to explain! I love sharing the wealth!
For now, here are 2 main things I suggest doing:
1) Find a financial advisor/ financial team and start learning about your current situation. They'll discuss with you where you are right now (the good, the bad, the ugly), and help you strategize to get you to where you want to be in the future. My husband and I wished we had done this sooner! If you live in the Houston area I'll be happy to tell you what team we work with! They are amazing!
2) Educate yourself! I have a few good reads on my mind, but this one is really great. It talks about investing in your future through life insurance, and being able to LIVE your life insurance $$$. (which is something we did through our financial advisors) This helped me understand how it works and what to expect. This will literally blow your mind.. at least, it blew mine. A completely different way of thinking and living that I had no clue was even possible.

There are several other topics to look forward to in this new Wednesday segment that I hope you'll join me on, including a big one, refinancing student loans..GEEZ I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE. I am currently working on this and will discuss in the future segments!
I hope you all are as excited as I am about learning more about money matters with me, and teaching each other some new tricks! Until next time!
