Hey girl hey, I see you! You deserve a standing ovation for where you’re at right NOW. You own your home, your bills are paid on time, you can splurge here and there – you’re taking names and kicking booty at work! Yassssss, werk!!! Your life is the bomb.com , so congrats and kudos to you!!!
But what about your financial future?
Is your future self staring you down and throwin’ mad shade??? Yelling “we’re NOT ready!”? Raise your hand if planning for your future hasn’t been top priority…well give yourself some grace, because you’re not alone.
It’s just SOOO easy to put aside when that beautiful new leather Coach ™ bag is calling you from the store window…credit cards are burning a hole in your pocket right now!
And yes…I know…I know, you can “afford” the payments! I know, because I WAS you.
But let’s get real, like 100% real, we all know that even ONE catastrophic event can lead to complete and utter financial ruin. (Been there, done that, got the selfie stick too) Jobs aren’t guaranteed, industries collapse, loved ones (or even we) get sick, and sometimes we’re just plain tired of being stuck at a job we hate. I have lived all of the above!
Wassup girlfriend, and welcome to my posh pad on the world wide web. I’m Yvonne and I’m flippin’ excited you’re here!!!
Not long ago, hubby and I were in the same position you’re in now. As an accountant and a police officer, we made darn good money and our finances were doing well. Our credit was strong, we’d bought a home, all the bills were paid, we splurged here and there no worries, and took nice vacations.
True confession, we were hiding a dirty little secret…we were BURIED under more than half a million dollars in debt!!! I was constantly waiting for ish to hit the fan.
I lay awake at night feeling anxious, unsure and frankly scared as hell…what would happen if one of us was badly hurt and we couldn’t work? What if we were laid off or our employers went out of business…AGAIN? What if the market tanked and wiped out our 401k like it did on tax day of 2000? How in the heck could we get stability and feel in control of our money?
I was sick of feeling like everyone and everything else had a say in our finances. Honestly, I was tired of worrying that our house of cards would collapse.
But more than this, I didn’t want to be just financially OK, I wanted MORE. I wanted financial security for now AND for our future. I wanted to be in CONTROL of our money. I wanted to live a POSH life, a life of EXELLENCE. So BOOM, we decided to get off our butts and do something about it.
We started by digging our way out of the suckpit of debt…dollar by dollar.
But HOTDANGIT the going was tough!
We couldn’t find any good info that helped us…like at ALL! What we DID find were tactics that were literally impossible…I mean seriously…we didn’t have a zillion dollars to start with…*insert eye roll*.
