Just a few years ago, I had over $40,000 in debt. Every month when my (multiple) credit card bills came in, I saw that number inch higher and higher. I was still paying off my Master’s degree, which provided me with a great paying career, I had a house that was hard to afford between all my other bills, and I couldn’t seem to get my head above water financially.
I even had a large windfall of money when my racecar was stolen (RIP Honda s2000) that was enough to pay off all my credit card debt ($12,000), only to find myself in the same exact place financially the following year. In debt.
I felt like I was just doing what I saw everyone else doing, and I couldn’t wrap my head around why it just wasn’t working.
I was good with numbers— I was an accountant, afterall. I knew I could figure this out, if I just put my all into it. When my son was born, that’s when I knew I had to make a change. How would I be able to financially support him, if I was so deep in debt?
First, I sold the house I couldn’t afford and that I had bought prematurely. I started tracking my spending. I stopped charging things to my credit cards entirely. I cut back on extra expenses. It felt like a big sacrifice at the time, but looking back, I know it was all necessary.
That was one of the best feelings I have ever experienced; I didn’t owe money to anyone. It felt like true freedom.
Today, I am proud to say I have a positive net worth (debt free for going on 5 years!), and a proven strategy to help others accomplish the same things I did. I no longer worry about providing for my family, and I am just under a decade away from my big financial goal of early retirement.
Over the years, I have perfected my money management strategies and ideas into a simple strategy, which is what I walk my clients through in my 1:1 coaching.
