The Challenges You Face

Recently I conducted a poll where I asked you what challenged you the most about becoming debt free. Although I didn’t get the response I was hoping for (a sample of 100 people), 67 of you did respond and I am now committed to focusing on what you said challenged you the most. I gave you 29 options and asked you to give me the top 5 challenges you faced while trying to get out of debt.What I plan on doing is writing articles discussing each one of these challenges one at a time. You’ll noticeĀ  that as I do I’ll be linking to each article from this page.

Top 8

Obviously we’re not confined to only struggling with these 8 things but the point was for me to know what you struggled with the most.

I can tell you from experience we dealt with most of what’s listed here during our debt free journey. Each at different times, in different ways and everyone ends up on a different journey to the same place.

Life happens differently for each of us but don’t let that stop you from reaching the top.

You’ll experience some challenges along the way but remember what your goals are and most importantly why you decided to get out of debt in the first place. Tap into that feeling you had right before you decided to finally do it. Remember that feeling all the way to zero baby and don’t look back. :O

Nothing below can stop you from reaching your goals. They’re just hurdles.
