You might read this title and wonder to yourself: “What on earth has improving my financial status got to do with dating?” Or maybe not, maybe the importance of this is more clear to you than anything else you’ve seen on this site.

That’s a matter of perspective, because I want to make it very clear that I’m not suggesting you work on making more money so that you can use your wealth to entice people to sleep with you because at the end of the day everybody is just a shallow, greedy jerk.

Because while there are definitely those kinds of people out there, money is an essential to all of us and something we have to focus on. And this is Major League dating, so I’m operating under the assumption that you’re in it for the long haul.

You want to up your dating game because you want a partner. Love, comfort, companionship, all important things in a stable relationship, but so is financial security. No matter how in love you are, your lives and your future will be at a stand still if you can’t support each other.

If you aren’t careful with your money and aren’t displaying an ability to take care of yourself financially, potential partners will question the possibility of a stable future with you. So let’s take a look at a few ways to effortlessly improve your financial status.

1. Automated Saving

10 ways to improve your financial status automated savings

Everybody should have a savings account that isn’t their primary bank account. It’s an investment in your future, something that will slowly build up over time so that you can have a nest egg when you need it.

And the best way to build a savings account is to have an automated set up. Basically, a portion of your income every single month will automatically be transferred into the account without you having to do anything.

It can be hard to actively transfer money from your personal account into a savings account, but this way it will never be in your personal account anyway and so you don’t have to do anything. You’ll never see it in your personal account so you won’t miss it.

2. Micro-Savings

10 ways to improve your financial status automated micro savings

The term ‘micro-savings’ probably doesn’t sound like something that’s going to make a huge difference in your finances, but don’t let it’s small-sounding name distract you from its value to your bank account.

Micro-savings are an automated process through which any payment you make with your card will be rounded up to the nearest dollar, with the balance being directly sent to a savings account. Understand?

Basically if you buy something that costs $5.95, you will spend that much on the purchase and then 5c will be transferred to your savings account. Obviously it’s only a little bit at a time, but you’re buying stuff on a daily basis so it will add up.

Not every bank allows this, so you might have to shop around to find one that does. There are also certain apps which do a similar thing.

3. Investments

10 ways to improve your financial status automated investments

On the surface, investments are a bit like micro-savings in the sense that they don’t really sound like something that can actually save you any money in the long run. It basically feels like you’re giving your money away.

Which of course you are, but if you do it right this should eventually lead to a strong return on investment (ROI). Investing is a science, it’s not about buying shares in the top companies and expecting the money to roll in, it’s about analyzing the market and predicting the trends.

It’s not magic, it’s not clairvoyance, it’s about historical movements and pattern recognition. At the beginning of your investing career, it might be wise to just look out for companies which offer dividends.

These are a share of the profits regardless of whether or not the stocks rise or fall so it’s basically a guaranteed income every month.

4. Declutter

10 ways to improve your financial status automated declutter

You should think about decluttering anyway if you’re trying to find a partner that you can have a future with. No one wants to walk into a house that’s packed with old, unused stuff and get a terrifying glimpse into what awaits them if they move forward with this hoarder.

But as well as that, it can be a good way to make some extra money because you probably have a lot of stuff that you can sell. Just because you’re not using it doesn’t mean that no one will use it. You could host a yard sale, or just use the internet.

There’s no shortage of online marketplaces where you can sell things second hand. Anything from clothes, books, kitchen appliances, trinkets, seriously have a look around your place, you’ll probably find a ton of stuff you haven’t used in years. Sell it all!

5. Buy Second-Hand Stuff

10 ways to improve your financial status buy second hand

In a similar way, you could also start buying as much of your stuff second-hand as you can. We all like new stuff, but the appeal of that is pretty superficial when you think about it. What matters is the function.

We spend so much money on clothes and we adore new clothes, but really, they’re only new the first couple of times you wear them. So if you always wanted to wear new clothes, you’d have to be buying stuff every day.

A new car is so expensive, but even one that’s been driven only a couple of times will cost so much less. There really are a number of different things that we generally buy brand new that really don’t need to be new. Take advantage of second-hand buying, it’s worth it.

6. Learn to Negotiate

10 ways to improve your financial status negotiate

Negotiation is not always going to come in useful, but for when it does it can save you an awful lot of money. It’s a valuable skill to have for bigger purchases like cars and homes, you’re not going to be doing it every day but it’s still worth learning.

Some people think that this is a little shady, but in truth, you’re really just trying to make sure that you’re getting the best deal. The goal is not to cheat anyone out of money, it’s to make sure you’re not being cheated.

Negotiation is not about being smooth-talking or witty or anything like the movies might imply, the real secrets to it are things like research and listening. So work on this skill because it could save you a lot, but don’t start practicing it when you’re buying groceries.

7. Seek Out Discounts

10 ways to improve your financial status discounts

Now again, this is not something that you can consistently guarantee success with because they’re not always going to be discounts, but they are a thing and if you do your research you can take advantage of them.

Discounts come in many different forms, some of which you probably aren’t applicable for, but some of which you most definitely will be. Familiarise yourself with these different kinds and then see which ones apply to your life and your location.

If you know what you’re doing you can probably cut a huge amount of your spending just by making avail of discounted products and services.

8. Time Purchases

10 ways to improve your financial status time purchases

Similar approach here, in addition to discounts, sales are also something which are common and which can be reliable. The difference here is that the discounts are usually conditional whereas sales can be taken advantage of by everyone.

This won’t apply for anything which there’s an urgency too, or when you’re buying groceries or anything like that, but most of the purchases you make will probably be on sale at some point, and if you can, you should try and time them.

This will help you to regulate spending too because it will force you to wait until certain things you think you want are on sale and you might realize that you don’t actually want them at all which will save you some money too.

9. Exercise Restraint

10 ways to improve your financial status exercise restraint

What this boils down to is that you shouldn’t spend money on too much of the stuff that you don’t actually need. As much as the temptation is there, and we’ve all given into it on numerous occasions, you need to have some restraint.

Of course, leisure is important. And when you’re planning out a budget for yourself you should include a certain amount every month for leisure. But be strict with yourself and stick to that budget. Self-control is such a valuable skill.

If your friends are going out for drinks but you’ve expended your leisure budget, then you’re not going out for drinks. Learn the value of staying in, being by yourself can be such a joy if you optimize that alone time.

10. Cut Subscriptions

10 ways to improve your financial status cancel subscriptions

So many of us have money coming out of our bank accounts every month that we are entirely unaware of because it doesn’t seem like it’s too much at a time. $5 disappears one day, you’re not going to notice, another $5 a week later, seems like nothing.

This is because we all subscribe to things that we think we’re interested enough in to justify constantly spending money on and then we forget about them. And the amount of money you’re losing as a consequence adds up.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t subscribe to anything, but you should take note of what you actually use. Most people are subscribed to Spotify and that’s a great service, but maybe you never actually use it.

Go through your subscriptions and see which ones you can stand to lose, and then get rid of them.

I can’t guarantee that this is going to help you find a date as such, but what it will do is set you up nicely for when you are with someone that you want to settle down with. Having financial security will be a weight off your mind and it will make your future so much clearer.

Hi, I'm Marc Summers

marc summers of major league dating

I used to suck big time with women, dating, and relationships even though I was nicer than other guys, tried my hardest, and followed all of the dating advice. The women I landed, unsurprisingly, weren’t very picky or hard to get and I regularly got cheated on and dumped. Despite being the nice, generous, thoughtful, and loving guy I thought women wanted, once they got to know me, the attraction disappeared.

The day my girlfriend left me for her ex 30 minutes after hearing he got out jail was the day I decided to get serious, figure out EXACTLY what I was doing wrong, and make some changes.

The next 5 years of my life were spent focusing only on studying psychology, human behavior, effective communication, and leadership, and meeting and dating one woman after another to test out and fine tune what I was learning.

You know what became obvious very quickly?

Your dating and relationship problems have nothing to do with the women and have everything to do with your mindset, behavior, habits, and decisions.

Once you figure out what’s wrong and fix the problems in each one of these areas, your dating life will become easier, less stressful, and more rewarding. 

To share the powerful information I learned and make you better with women, dating, and relationships, I’ve written multiple best-selling books and have helped over 1-million men get better results. No matter how screwed up and hopeless your situation seems right now, I can help you improve it.

I did what you told me to stay cool and replying her message without neediness, after 3 days breaking up, she wants to be my girlfriend again, and we finally get together again. Thanks for that Marc.

Kenneth J.

Hey bro, I just want to thank you personally for your book. I listen to it everyday and keeps my mind in the right place. Your blunt and to the point. It's helping me grow my business and stay focused on what really matters. I love everything you have in it. I'm finding out myself that buying stuff is an endless road and you really helped me ponder on the meaning behind all that. So many awesome things in your book. I have read hundreds of books over the last few years and yours is the gem. I'm on my fifth time through it and still just as impactful as the first. From all the books, you're the only one I've felt inspired enough to send a personal message too. Most books get you pumped up temporary but then they have no practical application for life. Yours does. It's the real deal. I'm selling my car and I get the things you hit on. Hope we can meet in person one day. Thanks again and just want you to know you're changing my life. Buying stuff is useless. Like a rock. I love it man. And I just experienced my own thing that validates everything I've been listening to in your book. Anyway, I could go on and on but I'll stop here. Much success to you.

A wise man surrounds himself with coaches and mentors to make himself better and I’ve done that for a long time now. But out of all the coaches I’ve ever worked with, you bring so much more to the table and you’re talking about things that even the famous “experts” I’ve listened to never talk about or get close to touching on. I write so much down that it’s like drinking out of a fire hydrant because you provide so much valuable information in such a short amount of time. Your charisma is contagious and my mind explodes with thoughts, ideas, and possibilities when I do these sessions. Thanks for that. Definitely sticking with the program for a while because even after our first session and reading your books I was immediately getting better responses from women.

Walter

Marc I bought your audio book 99 bad boys traits 2 months ago, and I listen to it every day. Man ever since that day my life changed and got amazing results I am 37 and can’ t stop young beautiful girls chasing and craving me. I would have paid twice the money I paid for. Thanks Marc!

J. Hardie

Marc's advice matches what I've seen work best, and unfortunately a lot of the stuff he accurately tells you NOT to do, I've done... Repeatedly. So in my experience, this guy's advice is almost 100% spot on.

William

You are full of good information. Coming from a nice guy, you have helped me clarify the differences and mistakes I have been making but wasn’t fully aware of. This information is applicable to life, personal, business, friendships, relationships, etc. Take out of it what works for you.

Michael

You have been quite possibly my favorite teacher in my life. I wish there was a way to repay you. Thank you very much for following your purposes.

Faizan

I really have to say WOW for your work, amazing indeed man. Your articles are fab and have changed the way i look at women now.

Andrew

Best money I’ve ever spent. I have a hard time learning from books and listening to audiobooks. But talking to you one on one has made it so much easier to understand and learn because I don’t get stuck wondering what something means. After 7 calls, I feel like a different man and my thinking is on another level. Don’t know where I’d be if I hadn’t met you.

Shawn

I was amazed at your ebook. It is pretty awesome. I think that is one of the best 19 dollars I have ever spent. I am 35, single, and have managed to stop masturbating for almost 5 months. I am doing it mainly for religious reasons. The benefits soo far are amazing and I am amazed. You’re fucking awesome, man.

Clarence

Declare War on Yourself is my new bible. Each page is impactful and a catalyst for changing behavior. It does not contain any rah rah motivation talk, nor tear-jerking inspiration stories. Just plain battlefield success principles.

Dejuan

Marc, thank you for being kind enough to release this dating BIBLE to the public. After 1 week of reading your book, I have found my inner game bro. I am realizing the power from being good at talking to women and I am ADDICTED. Because of you, I have unlocked my inner confidence, power, realization of self, and have figured out the fun of simply talking to the hottest girls without even knowing what fear is at the moment.

Mike L.

Marc, For what it’s worth, I’m a customer and a big fan. Your common sense, non-hype advice is on the mark every time. It gives much needed perspective. Thank you.

John

Thank you so much. You’ve been like a big brother to me and helped though my issues with girls with your videos, articles, books, and what you do. Thanks again.

K.M.

Marc is not only brilliant but very knowledgeable. He utilizes his real life experiences to advise other what to do and what not to do. At the end of the day, whenever I find my relationship going South, I revert back to 72 ways. Everytime. Why? Because it's the most effective and makes the most sense. And I've sought advice from the entire Internet! I've even talked to Marc on the phone and he's the same guy as he is on this audiobook. 100 % Real! Trust me when I say this will be money well spent! Thanks Marc!

Pedro

I’ve seen so many more other dating advices, dating coaches, boot camps and Pick-up artist communities.So it has open my mind and curiosity. But everyone wants to make Big money off on poor suckers..So i had to be careful of the scam artist and those coaches that are charging an arm and a leg for their advice. Well I read a bit of your stories on your page before buying your product and you sounded more legit without trying to Rip-off someone for sharing a valuable experience and information.

Brendan

Life Changing. The principles here go beyond porn and masturbation. Principles such as get more sleep, the reptilian brain, journaling, etc. Such an amazing list. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Brian

Tim Ferris said one idea could change your life forever. He is exactly right. I took that lesson that you taught about power and I completely stopped right away giving it up. It totally revolutionized everything. I have become the magnet that You talk about. Girls are flirting with me and I am flirting back and having fun and laughing. They are approaching me instead of me chasing them. One of the best breakthroughs I have had was with a girl that has a huge power trip and I was always kissing her ass until finally I stood up and basically said no. A lot was said back and forth but now, she apologized and our relationship is mutual. But, aside from all the laughy taffy stuff, I have learned to do me, get my own self together, say no, stop kissing ass and chasing girls around. If there is any one thing I have learned from all of my learning is that nothing changes, unless I do. Thanks so much for all you do!

Jerry

“I read the first chapter and I was hooked. Because of this book, Declare War on Yourself, my life is truly going in the right direction in all aspects. It has been awakening and your personal letter hit me the most.”

John

Perfect and concise. This book is what every nice guy has dreamed of. It gives the formula and reasoning behind why they generally don't have success with women... even though they have adapted to the things the women have claimed they wanted.
