Yes you can.
If you had told me 3 years ago that I would have been debt free from a crushing $60000 worth of debt and only had a small mortgage payment to make, I would have halfheartedly believed you.
Because to tell the truth I never thought we would ever be out of debt.
One small step in the right direction is all we needed to get us on our way to debt freedom.
At first we kept each other going and then finally we just wanted to see if we could do it.

I have tried in the last 5 months to be very impartial when it comes to YouTube.
They make that very hard by first demonetizing hard working small creators and then slowly killing their channels by hardly promoting some while others with hardly any sense or content zoom past content creator like they are standing still.
Even today when finally coming up with the strategy of an alternate blog to be able to monetize did I hit another snag when they put a strike on my channel for putting a link they made me verify themselves. It was quite annoying and it has become apparent to me that they care very little that anyone might have put in thousands of hours to make pennies that they simply took away from soo many creators without a single shred of remorse.
But regardless of the few snags I finally found a way to get back into the game of winning….I think…for now anyways.
So please click on the link below that leads to my blogger blog for more information or if you are curious to find out more of what I am talking about.
Hope you and yours are well.
Do you have to work for a living? We do and it sometimes sucks. We do it to eventually buy back our time and then we will be able to ponder and do what we really are passionate about.
We were asked what we do for a living a while back so we decided to explain how we spend our weeks and how we make our money.
The money that will make us financially free to live the life we want on our terms.
I am super excited about this part of my life. We are finally doing things to the house to empty it.
Yes you heard me correctly. My living room is beginning to look like a ghost town. It is so empty I swear I can almost hear my voice echo in it when I walk into it. The room I thought was small for a living room now looks super big.
Some may question why we put so little in it, but the answer is simple. Room to think without clutter. Room to breathe. And finally less stuff to clean from week to week.
We are also finishing the closet in our bedroom. A job that has been ignored for the better part of 4 years (where does time go).
You just get tapped out or tired or just burnt out of doing things in your home.
I’m hoping we can pace ourselves here because I want stuff to get done, but I don’t want to go overboard.
The difference than the other times we started this would be that we had tons of debt and would spend thousands to start a project that sometimes did not get finished. And somehow the clutter as well as the bills kept climbing.
This time, we are using materials we can find and try to spend the least without compromising the clean cut look of things, but we are keeping in mind that less is more. Less spent, less junk. Keeping both are space and money and staying debt free.
People clean out spaces only to fill them back up with crap. This time we are cleaning them and trying to put a lot less back.
The greatest thing about all of this is you know that feeling you get when you have brand new shelves and pristine white walls, how just clean and fresh it feels. By not overfilling with stuff, you can get to keep that feeling all the time!!
Feels great! I highly recommend it.
Does it always seem like you have to work 5 times harder than anyone else on the planet to get ahead?
Do you want to give up almost every day because you figure you are just too damn tired and not getting anywhere?
You keep working to get half of what the complainers and whiners get and you have had enough.
It’s normal to get frustrated.
Feel like you are going uphill? Yes I know how that feels too.
Are you different than the crowd? Do you do things your way? Does that cause you problems sometimes?
If you have replied yes to any of these, you might be an individual who is beyond the crowd. A one of a kind sort of person.
Is it difficult not to fit into the norm of society? Yes, sometimes it is.
Do you know that some of the most successful people failed, were rejected and turned down? Take Walt Disney for example who was once accused of “lacking imagination and having no good ideas” by a newspaper editor.
Feel alone in the world of feeling like a failure. Don’t. You are in good company. Most successful people have felt or have in fact failed a few times before making it.
What is different with them from the rest of the world?
They prevailed. They did not give up. They believed in themselves or their inventions/designs etc when nobody else did.
Keep believing you can do it. The only time you really fail is when you give up on yourself.
Don’t give up on your dreams.
I watch YouTube. They are my community. I make YouTube videos weekly and try to watch similar or like-minded creators.
I saw a video this week called 10 things I will buy or do when I am out of debt. I started watching it and saw the person talk about trips and new furniture and then a car etc… (more…)
