Being a bargain shopper is fine for shopping, but not for business.
If you’re a bargain shopper who loves a good deal, that’s great – in context. Bargain shopping for certain home items, some types of insurance or non-essentials can make a lot of sense, whatever your income level. But there are some times when bargain shopping is a big mistake.
Whenever you want to leverage your debt for the highest possible return.
“You get what you pay for.”
Think of it this way: would you rather buy a crappy computer that will last you 1 year because it’s cheap, or a computer that costs twice as much but will last 5 years or more?
Well the same is true when investing in your business. If you search out the cheapest web-designer, the lowest charging assistant, the rock-bottom priced office chair (or equipment), you can expect to get what you pay for.
If you’re always looking for the best deal, the cheapest sale, or the most freebie info you can get your hands on so that you don’t have to actually PAY for business growth & support, you’ve got a formula for trouble because generally speaking …
Bargain shoppers get crappy deals.
Your Vibration Attracts your Results
The reason why bargain-shopping business owners don’t stand much of a chance of real success is because if you are showing up in your life in a vibrational resonance of ‘low budget’, then what’s going to show up for you is C H E A P … cheap crap, cheapie, penny-pinching clients and crappy deals.
In other words, a bargain shopper vibration will never lead you to abundance.
That ain’t a business, that’s just an impoverished mindset trying to get ahead by squeaking by.
But if you really want to grow your business, you’ll have to invest. Strategically? Yes. One step at a time? Probably. But when it comes to anything related to business support or necessary equipment, but sure not to fall into the bargain mindset.
