I believe we are meant to live in community and that means sharing our secrets, heartaches, hopes, dreams, struggles, finances, and goals.
My awareness of and dedication to becoming debt free and financially independent has blossomed over the past year or so, and it’s important to look back and be appreciative of the situations that have allowed me to find success.
People often say “not to sweat the small things” when trying to save money. That the $5 daily Starbucks will not make a dent in your savings and retirement outlook. However, these little expenses do add up and eventually can cause a big problem.
For me, what started out as an innocent looking scratch, turned into a $30,000, six night stay in the hospital.
Here’s the problem… We all have limited time available to pursue these important aspects of life. We’re stretched thin trying to do it all. In order to truly be successful we have to 1) Make priorities and 2) Figure out how to manage them.
