Fellow Creative Money Master
I heard you are tired of being broke and feeling trapped in your financial situation. You’ve been letting go of your dreams because you’re so deeply in debt you can’t focus on anything else. You’re fed up and looking for a way out.
You’re in the right place.
I wish I could give you a hug. If I could, I would erase that anxious feeling in the pit of your stomach every time you have to pay a bill you aren’t sure you have money for. I would take away the worries that keep you tossing and turning at night. Being broke sucks. I know. But doesn’t have to last forever. There is a way out.
They say that opposites attract and in every relationship you have a nerd (money-minded person) and a free spirit (a creative mind). Somehow, my husband and I missed that memo. We both operate on the creative side. So, we got married, enjoyed life, and never once thought about money management.
Three years into our marriage, we became a family of three. That little boy rocked our world. Suddenly, we were parents, in charge of the well-being of another person.
The idea of sending my precious baby to daycare at 12 weeks old broke my heart. We took an honest look at our finances and realized that we had no other choice. We were up to our necks in debt and spending way more than what we were making. We felt backed into a corner with no way out.
To make a long story short (you can read the long version here), we took Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, started budgeting, living within our means, and working like maniacs to pay off our debt.
16 months later we have paid off around $20,000 in debt, had $10,000 forgiven, and avoided $15,000, paid cash for a car, and survived several life emergencies without a credit card. That’s $38,000 worth of debt that we were able to remove from our lives in a little over a year.
As the chains of debt began loosening, a funny thing happened. Although we were working harder, living on less, and making sacrifices, we were happier. All of those dreams that debt had all but beaten out of us, started to seem possible again.
We realized that although we aren’t money people, we can still succeed financially. Our creativity became an asset instead of a curse. We began to DIY everything, find ways to solve problems and make things work with what we had. Keeping our eyes on our goal instead of the numbers kept us moving forward. We became Creative Money Masters.
Anyone can succeed financially.
That includes you. You have lived in chains long enough. It’s time to be free. Add your email below to get started.
