Wow!! I definitely used to be one of those people.
In 2009-2011 the market had crashed so bad where we lived, my husband and I made the very hard decision to let our house go into foreclosure.
Since that time, and since 2013, we decided to live like no one else and never get in that situation again.
Once we found financial freedom for ourselves, we wanted nothing more than to help other families find the same!
You do not have to live paycheck to paycheck.
You can take your family on trips and make more memories!!
You can live in a nicer neighborhood, go to better schools and spend more time with loved ones and less time working… but it’s going to take a few small changes and mind-set shifts.
Did you learn about money in school?
Neither did I!!
I think it’s time we start talking about it and creating a conversation about freedom.
One of the big, scary things we did, as a couple was sit down and highlight what we were actually spending.
We realized that we were basically eating ourselves into a financial hole.
We aren’t extravagant and the realization that a thousand tiny holes can sink a ship really hit home.
