These days, awesome budgeting skills and empowering money habits are a natural part of my life. But it wasn’t always that way. I joined the workforce burdened with $50,000 of debt between student loans, credit cards, and a car loan. (Yeah, not pretty.)
I knew I needed some help. But for the life of me, I couldn’t find a financial planner I connected with, who understood what I was looking for and wouldn’t just give me a bunch of theoretical, cookie-cutter advice that never felt practical.
So I set out to crack the code myself!
And I suffered through hundreds of hours of boring courses and tedious books to figure this stuff out. Fast forward five years: I’ve paid off all my debt, stashed just as much into savings, and I’m not clipping coupons to afford my gourmet groceries!
