Dear Debt Free Me,
I started a blog and officially launched it today! It’s called The Debt Free Gonnabe Blog!
I’ve been wanting to start one for a while but of course I was in my head and my nerves got the best of me. But here I am! It’ll serve as a place to continue conversations from the DebtFreeGonnaBe Instagram page I started to document my journey to becoming you. It’s part of a community called the Debt Free Community or affectionately known as the DFC. You’d love it! It’s full of people like myself on journeys to change their family tree by becoming debt free and some to even retire early! Crazy right?! I’ve gained a lot of friends along the way who are rooting for…well…US! They celebrate with me when I accomplish a goal or come into some good news and they encourage me to keep going when I experience a set back. And trust me, I’ve had my share of setbacks since I finally got serious about wanting the best for you. But I haven’t given up. I won’t give up! Because I know you’re counting on me. Wait…is someone chopping onions?! My eyes are tearing up.
It’s been a lot of hard work! I’m now on my second side hustle, working at a boutique cycling studio. This sometimes means days of waking up suuuuuuper early to be in at 5:30a for a few hours before going to the full-time job (which I hate a little less now but still want to quit every day) or going in the late afternoon until the studio closes, after putting in a full day in the office. I’m tired but I will finish this fight.
I hope I make you proud!
