So, let's say you have a dream. An idea for a new business, a vacation of a lifetime, being debt free, having more time for the kids...whatever it is, whatever it may be, it is your dream. Which means, you have to invest in it, which sometimes can be an indulgence. And remember, investing in your dreams is what you have to do to make them happen.
Buy some new pieces for your wardrobe. This goes for the guys, too, if they are hunting for jobs or even trying to keep the jobs they have. Being current with your look, having good solid interview outfits, a non-wornout briefcase, and so on can make a difference when meeting a possible employer.
Buy some new tech. I just got a new laptop, one that is lighter and more portable as I often write on the go, at coffee shops, and during Kiddo's ballet class. It was an investment in my dream of being a successful freelance writer.
Buy some new ideas (or learn some old ones). Say your dream is to make a children's book. Take a class, join the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, hire a sitter to watch the kids while you work on it. Put money toward this dream by learning about it and spending time on it.
