You don’t need to be totally organized to save money. You don’t have to be boring to launch a business. You don’t have have to have everything together. Most of us are waiting for some magical moment to happen. For some life-changing experience. You don’t have to grow up and become mature to get results in your 20s. You’re fine the way that you are right now.

What can you start doing right now even if you don’t have it all together?

Just start making money.

You absolutely don’t need any business cards, the best resume in the world, or venture capital to start making money. Anyone can start making money today. I worried and stressed about launching a site forever. I just couldn’t do it. Then finally I threw all of the excuses out and just launched.

You don’t need a 100-page business plan. You especially don’t need business cards. Those are great to have, but are absolutely not essential.

I see this happen all of the time with friends. They create some crazy business cards and hand them out. Then they change their Facebook occupation to “Owner of …” They do everything, but make actual money. Screw that. I want to see you make real money and then worry about the business cards later.

Put a few bucks away every single time you get paid.

You don’t have to learn any of the following to save money:

  • Day trading advice.
  • Different investments to get involved in.
  • Dividend trading.

If you want to start saving money, just put a few bucks away every single paycheck. The next time you get paid, put aside a small amount of this.

I started doing this back in 2005. I signed up for automatic paycheck deductions. From every single pay, a few bucks would get deducted and go into an account. Then I would very limited access to this money. I was forced to save money. It was like a pay cut except the money was all mine. The interest rate on this money sucked, but I didn’t care about that. I’m very happy to this day that I decided to put this money away. This account has grown nicely over the years.

So please, if you want to start saving money, just save. Don’t worry about the stock market or complex investments.

Make mistakes.

“A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.” — John C. Maxwell

Mistakes are apart of life. So what if you’re not perfect? Everything doesn’t have to be organized and perfect to work. It’s okay to make mistakes and fail. The scariest thing is not trying. I can deal with failure. But not trying is just sad.

You don’t have to worry about being organized and on top of everything. Some of the most successful people that I know don’t have it together by any means. They’re often confused or lost. You just need to get started.
