Hi I’m Mike Staunton - online entrepreneur, financial coach, and founder of Money Like Mike
Hey friend, Mike Staunton here.
I’m a financial coach and founder of Money Like Mike. I help people like you to become debt-free and reach their financial goals.
I always believed I was destined to make an impact on people’s lives
I didn't always know exactly what it would be. But I knew that I wanted my life to have a purpose
It all started when I was 5 years old. With my very first memory of my parents.
Because of the way my room was situated. I could see into the living room. Many nights my parents were crying and arguing about money.
The only thing I wanted was for them to stop arguing. I couldn’t sleep!
As a kid, you don't want to see your parents getting into money fights.
I knew at that moment, even at five years old, that I was never going to put my family through that.
Then life actually started happening at 16 years old. I decided to leave home, I wanted to become an adult. Because I was tired of being told what to do.
So I moved out of my parents. At that point, I started paying my own bills, taxes, insurances, food, clothing, etc.
You name it and I had to pay for it.
Then when I was 17, I bought my first motorbike. Just because now I could, I wanted to stand out. And no one was there to stop me.
So I paid for it, for $6,000 in cash!
Not long after that, at 18 years old, I went to university.
Because I wanted to become an electrical engineer. I applied for scholarships and grants which allowed me to pay for my first year of university.
Through this part of my journey as an adult. I thought I knew what I was doing.
BUT THEN, when I was 19, something happened.
The motorbike I bought at 17 almost killed me.
I could have easily died!
As I was riding, I took a left turn. There was a change in the pavement.
I grabbed the throttle with my right hand. My rear wheel jumped to the right.
Then to the left, back to the right, and very quickly it bucked me off like I was riding a bull.
As quickly as it happened, it also happened in slow motion.
I can still go back there now and see myself very clearly flying through the air like Superman with my arms out.
The very first thing that hit the pavement is my left elbow then my head, then my body flipped up over me and then I was sliding on my belly on the sidewalk.
My body ended up going across three lanes of pavement. Unbelievably and luckily there were no cars in those lanes during this moment!
Now like I said, I thought that could have easily killed me.
And I believe if I didn't have my helmet on, I would have died.
This motorbike accident changed my life and made me think differently.
I had always been a natural saver. Remember, I didn’t want to be like my parents and argue about money.
I thought the way to get there was to save money.
By having a near-death experience, it changed my thinking.
I moved from being a saver to being a spender!
And spending is what I did for the next 12 months.
I decided to move away from the motorbike on the road to one on the dirt.
So, I “bought” (aka financed) a brand new dirt bike.
Then, I needed something to carry it around, so I financed a brand new truck.
To top it all off, I thought I should have somewhere to put these things, so I bought a brand new house with a two-car garage!
This was all within ONE YEAR after my accident.
AND at the same time I was trading time for money at the job I had. Meaning, if I didn’t work, I didn’t get paid!
I quickly realized I didn't learn how to handle money during my schooling years.
I was living paycheck to paycheck and spending WAY more than I earned!
During all of this, I was still going to university full-time.
Which led me to be introduced to the great American student loan program.
At 20 years old I felt the need to take out student loans to pay for both University and the other things I financed!
The brand new dirt bike, the brand new truck, and the brand new house.
This year of my life was probably the most unwise I will ever go through!
Once I graduated, I started a full-time job as an electrical engineer at 22 years old.
From 20-years old to 22-years old, I tripled my income and yet was still living paycheck to paycheck.
This led me to want to take inventory and know where I stood financially. I did this by calculating my net worth.
When I first did my net worth calculation in my early 20's I had come to an embarrassing number!
I was worth -$100,000!
Yup... I was worth less than $0 on paper!
I had a big hole to climb out of and truthfully didn't know where to start.
I was so shocked. I finally had an 'I've had it' moment and said NEVER AGAIN!
So I decided I was not going to live my life this way anymore!
If I wanted to get out of this mess, I needed to change my life.
I dreamed about getting out of debt and becoming a millionaire.
But I also wanted to have the flexibility of being able to wake up and spend time with my family. I wanted to have the freedom and peace of mind of having enough money.
After years of struggling, learning, and failing I was finally able to figure things out!
At the age of 35, I made my dreams come true.
I became a millionaire, I live on my own schedule.
Have the freedom to work when I want, where I want.
All because I got my finances handled.
Now maybe you’re thinking. That is awesome. I want to achieve that, but I have no idea how.
First, let me tell you.
It’s not your fault
We are constantly told by society to get that car, that house, to go to college.
And to pay for all of that by going into DEBT. It’s so normalized nowadays.
Next to that, we want to buy the latest things. To keep up with the Joneses.
And even then. If you want to get out of your financial mess.
There is so much financial advice out there it’s overwhelming
Getting into zero-down loans, crypto, NFTs, buy lottery tickets, get-rich-quick-schemes
Also, you’re told you need to have money to make money, borrow to invest, and use other people’s money.
Maybe you’ve tried to start paying off your debt and didn’t succeed.
Also, much of this advice is conflicting. This just makes you frustrated.
It makes you want to throw your hands in the air and just give up.
It's actually much easier to just go with it. Put your head in the sand.
Being trapped, and paying years of interest to the banks. Making them richer.
Keeping you trapped financially.
All this is total nonsense - Here’s why
What's going to make your finances ACTUALLY work for you?
Did you systemize your financial future?
If you have bills coming up how are you supposed to pay for them?
What if an emergency happens, are you prepared for that?
Getting your finances handled isn’t a magic trick
That’s right, it’s not a magic trick. It’s a system.
When done right. It’s easy.
When it’s done consistently.
It doesn’t have to take much time and effort.
I’m talking about budgeting
Well, you might say to yourself. I know about budgeting.
I don’t like to restrict myself. I like to live, not die on a budget.
I have tried it in the past. But it’s overwhelming and difficult to stick to.
It takes so much time to create and maintain.
Let me tell you, it is possible
I think the word budgeting gets a bad reputation these days.
It sounds like it’s hard.. like there is no room for flexibility.
A budget got me from $100,000 in debt to becoming a millionaire before 35
That’s the thing I realized later.
I had systemized my way out, towards my goal.
If I can do it, you can do it too.
But for me, it took years of struggle to figure it out.
Now it’s finally on point.
I have created a system that works for me and my clients.
And I’m sure it will work for you as well.
I’m so happy and grateful to share this with you.
It will literally change your life.
And the best part is. It only takes 15 minutes a month to make.
The 15-Minute Budget
It’s the easiest, most reliable way to create financial freedom.
It’s created in a way that you can easily stick to it.
The best part is, it only 15 minutes a month to make.
In the beginning, it will take a little more time to set up.
But from there, you can do it in even less than 15 minutes a month.
It will help you so much
You will have a clear plan to reach your financial goals.
You will get a clear picture of where your money goes every month.
This system is so easy. You will not waste time on it.
You will give yourself the option of having play money. Being able to spend money without the stress and guilt. While knowing you’re on your path.
This system is so simple and easy. It will essentially take care of itself.
You will have more money to spend on things you love. You’ll also be able to donate to your favourite charities.
It will improve your relationship with your partner. Because now you’re aligned on your finances. I will also give you guidance on how to do that.
The budget will be tailored to you. No matter where you start, you can grow.
I will show you simple ways to get your spending under control. If you’re a spender like I was.
I will show you how to handle unexpected expenses.
Next to this, I will also show you the mindset. Because only with the right mindset you’ll be able to make the small changes, that will have a huge impact over the long run.
Now you might ask yourself
Am I supposed to sacrifice spending on the things I love?
Am I supposed to keep track of every penny?
Doesn’t it take a lot of time to create and maintain?
How can I stay consistent and stick to it?
Do I need to restrict myself?
Isn’t it overwhelming to do all this?
Now if I would say no, not at all. That would be unwise and unloving.
The best part about the system I’m going to show you is that you can start small and build over time.
There's no need to sacrifice the things you love.
People make their finances way too complicated, but it's really not.
In fact, there are only four things you need to be doing.
And if I can learn them, anyone can learn them.
See the Mike of the past was afraid. He wanted to get to a better place financially.
I think he needed a change, but he didn't know how to pull it off.
Can you relate? I've always had a stable paycheck.
But I needed to do something different to change my life.
So, I took decades worth of knowledge from success, pain, and frustration, and experience and distilled it all.
All down into a repeatable system.
The 15-Minute Budget is an end-to-end turnkey system.
