Thankful Thursday – Opportunity

I really love the coaching opportunity because in a world full of things I can’t control and don’t enjoy, Coaching allows me to control several facets of my life, fuel my feel-good tank by helping OTHERS feel good, and I ENJOY helping people, I ENJOY keeping myself accountable, I ENJOY my groups, team-building, and biz powwows, team calls and all the other fun stuff!

Oh, and making some extra cash to pay off debt and do MORE good in the world with? YEAH, I enjoy that! Just being honest! 🙂

When you find something you enjoy doing, it doesn’t feel like WORK. And feeling like you are in control of some things? THAT is a pretty awesome feeling!

Have YOU ever thought about taking control of YOUR life?

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.

Think About It Thursday – Biz Opportunity

Have you ever ALLOWED yourself to think what life could be like without debt? Without being at the mercy of credit cards or depleted savings accounts?

Even just to be comfortable as costs of living skyrocket? Really let yourself think about what it could be like to bring in extra income each week – uncapped, unlimited potential income, unlike the salary cap associated with corporate jobs?

Financial Freedom Friday

Uh yes, this WILL be my husband and I once we achieve financial freedom. Often! 🙂

I have been transparent about my debt – personal, and student loan debt. It has crippled me for a long time – in fact, I have never had a debt free day in my adult life. I have had days where I had no credit card debt, but I had 5 figures in student loans.

Sometimes, I feel like I will never get out from under my debt. Other times, I let chasing that feeling of FREEDOM fuel me, and I find it in me to keep going, because there is literally nothing I want more than to experience a day without debt, of ANY kind.

The thing here is, it takes time to build a business, and to that effect, it also takes a little money, too. But I will be debt free someday, soon. I WILL know the feeling of knowing I am no longer paying interest on debt, or maintenance fees, or any of those other infuriating nickel and dime charges that show up monthly.

You know why, and how I know? Because it’s all up to me, and I have yet to let myself down. I falter, I get frustrated, and I fail… but I pull up my bootstraps and keep going.

Because there is a thing called FINANCIAL FREEDOM, and I intend to experience it. And so I am grateful to Beachbody for giving me the platform with which to do so.

You might have your challenges, your frustrating moments, but you gotta power through them… there IS light at the end of the debt-tunnel!

Join me!
