My brilliant social media guru, Catherine Tidd of Social Seed Marketing, recently made me aware of the many opportunities to celebrate just about anything with International fill-in-the-blank days.
Sadly, I missed National Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th, but don’t despair! There are plenty more opportunities. Here are a few examples for October and how to make these days great for your finances, too.
October 10th is World Mental Health Day (#WorldMentalHeathDay). You know what’s good for your mental health? Knowing you are making smart decisions with your money. Use this day to reach out to your financial adviser for a check-up appointment.
October 13th is National Train Your Brain Day (#TrainYourBrainDay). If this doesn’t scream personal finance, what does? Train your brain to do one thing better for your finances: Eat out one less day per week, increase your 401(k) contribution, institute 1 week per month as a no-spend week, read a personal finance article. He possibilities are endless.
October 17th is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (#EndPoverty). A great reminder to check your investments for appreciated stocks or mutual funds for tax efficient opportunities to give to your favorite charity.
October 18th is Get to Know Your Customers Day (#GetToKnowYourCustomersDay). Salespeople and small business owners, use this as an opportunity to create a customer event. Better sales mean better income mean better savings!
October 20th is World Statistics Day (#StatisticsDay). Blah, let’s skip that one and move to…
October 21st, which is Reptile Awareness Day (#ReptileAwarenessDay)! Feel like your financial adviser might be a snake in the grass? Contact me for a 15-minute consultation. Assuming, that is, that I’m NOT the slithery adviser you are thinking of.
And finally, October 25th is Greasy Foods Day (#GreasyFoodsDay). A financial tie-in is hard here, but just go get a burger and fries and think good thoughts about me, who made you aware of this important day.
