Hello everyone and welcome! I was reflecting on what gives me the most inspiration and encouragement to complete our Total Money Makeover, and I realized that the most emotional feeling derives from people calling in to the Dave Ramsey Show to scream they’re debt free!! Every time I hear a caller scream these 3 very powerful words it makes me imagine being there and what it feels like! Sometimes this means the eyes water up!
Imagine with me for a second and think about screaming these three words. “WE’RE DEBT FREEEEEEEEEEE!” Imagine that is you! How do you feel? GREAT right? Does it give you a stronger desire and motivation to accomplish this goal? It fires me up, and sometimes it can be very emotional since my entire adult life has been apparently devoted to living in debt. This one phrase gives me focus and extra determination to reach this pinnacle of freedom!!
With my blog, I want to help others like me, get out of debt forever. I would like this blog to be about inspiration! I would like this blog to be about giving people the same inspiration that Dave Ramsey’s radio show gives it’s listeners! I want this blog to lift up! I want this blog to reach the person that is just beginning the debt free process, and I want it to provide HOPE! I want it to reach the person who has never even thought about what debt freedom means, but happens to run in to this blog! Inspire, encourage, motivate, and support! That is what my mission is about!
In order to do this I need for people who are becoming debt free, or are already debt free to participate! Here’s how it will work.
Consider answering these questions in your post:
- How much debt have you paid off in total?
- How long did it take you to do this?
- How has this freedom changed your life?
- What was the hardest part about your journey?
- How much debt have you paid/how much you have left?
- What is your projected goal for becoming debt free?
- How is this new journey changing your life?
- What are some of your struggles along the way?
I hope that you see just how important and essential something like this can be to people who are struggling! Please help me lift those folks up so that they do not feel alone! Let’s show them that the path to freedom is there, they just have to keep walking! Help give them the hope that you once experienced!
