I am just a regular girl, from a family that lived paycheck to paycheck and didn’t know much about how to get ahead. My parents knew they wanted more for me than they had, so they encouraged me to go to college. I did that, but I floundered around for many years, unsure what direction my life should take. After years in college, and ultimately two degrees, I had a lot of debt and no clue how to dig myself out. 10 years later, I have paid off all my debt, become proficient in a career I enjoy, and bought a house that I am on track to pay off in the next two years.
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
I spent so many years of my life struggling, and running around in financial circles without getting ahead. I believe that we are not learning the basics of personal finance in school that would help us be financially successful years earlier. I want to help people who are just starting out, or who have struggled like I did for years, so they won’t waste any more time in debt and living paycheck to paycheck.
THE GOAL OF THIS SITE
I am going to share everything I have learned (so far) about building a stable, happy financial life. I will teach you techniques for budgeting, debt payoff, and building savings. I will show you some of the tools I have used, and help you avoid the mistakes I have made. I will continue to share anything new I learn, as I am always trying to find ways to make life easier and more financially sound.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
To a Happy Financial Life,
