Hey debt fighters and money mavens! It’s been a wild ride in 2015 and we’re not even at the three-week mark. I’ve experienced the good, the bad, the ugly, along with the strange and unfortunate — it’s been a whirlwind.
I’m so grateful I took that time off to be with family and friends for 2 weeks in LA over the holidays.
But aside from everything that is going on, you know that I’m committed to paying off debt right? I’m so excited to say that in the last month, I put $1,000 towards my debt! It’s been a while since that happened, so I’m super jazzed about it.
My student loans are now at: $33,740.36
I look forward to getting rid of more debt this year, so I can accomplish my financial dream. What is my financial dream — or life after debt? It means more traveling and less worrying, more generosity and less fear, and more security. Later this week I’ll be talking about WHY I want to get out of debt, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, come join me and LaTisha Styles for a fun and inspiring Twitter chat this Wednesday, January 21st at 8pm EST/5pm PST. The chat will be with Payoff, an awesome company that focuses on uplifting people and empowering them to think about life after debt. They merely don’t want to focus on debt payoff but life after payoff. We’ll be chatting with the CMO, Carey Ransom, who is a pretty rad guy. We’ll be talking about making progress on your financial dream in 2015 and how dumping debt can get you there.
We’re hoping the later time will help folks who work during the day be able to attend — and you won’t want to miss it! It will be great fun AND we are giving away $125 in prizes (SUH-WEET!).
If you can attend, please RSVP here (you can still attend if you don’t, but it is suggested): http://goo.gl/forms/fFlaFlPkyx
