Finally!

This is years and YEARS in the making… introducing, my new baby! 😍

I have wanted a Mac since I was a teenager (I’ll let you do that math!) In college, many of my fellow design students had them, and to say I was jealous…

But let’s be real… Macbook’s are NOT cheap. I could not justify the expense, not when I had credit card debt, and student loan debt to be paying off. Being smart financially is NOT always easy…

But I worked REALLY hard to pay my credit card debts off – and this was gonna be my treat to myself, especially because this would help me with everything, my business included.

I wasn’t YET ready to make the splurge… but then a couple of weeks ago, I accidentally kneeled on my current laptop, effectively shattering the screen into a million fragments, and rather than toss money to repair it when I was planning to get a new computer anyways… I made the jump!

Fun fact: when your new MacBook Air is scheduled to be delivered between 2-6 November, but instead comes super early on 30 October, while you have no power and can’t do a damn thing with it for 30 hours? NOT SUPER FUN, a little on the taunty side… 😉

And yes, I am IMMENSELY proud of how hard I have worked to pay down my debt, and purchase my computer in cash, completely paid for – the beautiful result of HARD WORK to build my business and make SMART financial decisions!

What is something you are working towards crossing off YOUR vision board?

 

Fuck Yeah Friday – Zero Balance!

EFF YEAH FRIDAY!

This… is a B E A U T I F U L sight.

I owed the most in personal credit card debt, to this company. I owed them 4 figures, 6 if you add a decimal. And at some times, it felt like I owed them my life, and I would owe them forever…

I owed, and owed, and owed. So I paid, and paid, and paid. And then paid it off last year, for the FIRST time…

Then I shopped… some unforeseen situations arose… and we took a vacation, and I found myself having a balance again. It FELT like I blinked and it was back to 4 figures…

And I said nope, not anymore. And I set a goal to pay my 4 figure debt down AGAIN, and finally be free from the financial chains that bound me to this company.

And in the 10+ years I have had a card with them, this is the first time I have had a zero balance long enough for my statement to reflect that. And oh… those ZEROES. I chased those babies. I worked my tush off for them. I even made sacrifices, instead staying STEADFAST in my quest to pay OFF my credit card debt, ALL of it. My supplemental/residual income made it so I could do JUST that.

And I did. And there is really nothing like that feeling. They get bupkis from me this month.

That… is a feeling that cannot be classified as anything less than fucking amazing.

Eff. Yeah.
