The Smart Way To Manage Your Commission Checks [INFOGRAPHIC]

Stop living paycheck to paycheck!

Being a successful agent is about more than just getting those commission checks.

How you spend and save those commission checks can have a huge impact on your success in your business and at home…

You shouldn’t have to live paycheck to paycheck and having a plan to allocate you commission checks will help you live your Life By Design.

Typically speaking, think of putting your commission check into three categories…

3 Buckets: Where Your Money SHOULD Go

1. Tax Account: This is for the taxes you will be paying at the end of the year.

2. Your Personal Account: This is for your personal expenses (savings, fun/treats, bills, investments, retirement, etc.).

3. Business account: It is vital that you put money back into your business.

This is the same plan that our coaches give to agents around the world.

Here’s what we usually see among agents…
