“You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.” –Dave Ramsey
In my experience the lack of control over my money did control me because I felt trapped to earn more and more money while climbing higher and higher up the corporate ladder in order to pay my bills, debt, and daily expenses. It wasn’t until I realized that the amount of money I was already making should have been more than enough to live on that I decided to take a good hard look at my finances.
After putting a little bit of effort and time into setting up a budget I was able to change jobs to one that is over an hour closer to my home and make half of what I was previously earning with relatively no impact to my daily life aside from giving me 2 more hours of free time every single day.
My goal in writing this blog is to help you manage the money that you already have, offer recommendations to products/services and provide you with advice for new ways to earn more money.
