Hello everyone! I’m excited to share a little bit about my journey towards financial freedom. As of January 2023, I am thrilled to announce that I am completely debt-free, including paying off my mortgage. It’s been an incredible four-year journey for me, starting with high-interest credit card debt, car loans, and the burden of a mortgage. I made a decision to take control of my financial situation and apply the knowledge I gained from the 3rd Decade to create a solid budget and reduce unnecessary spending. I knew that in order to achieve my goals, I needed to make some changes. Alongside my full-time job and being a parent, I even took on a part-time job to increase my income and accelerate my debt repayment. I want to emphasize that your financial education journey is within your reach as well. No matter what your goals may be, you have the power to achieve them. It requires dedication, discipline, and a willingness to make necessary changes. I’m here to support you every step of the way and provide guidance based on my own experiences. Remember, financial freedom is attainable for anyone who’s willing to put in the effort. Let’s embark on this journey together and work towards a brighter financial future. I can’t wait to see what you achieve!
