Do you make too much to feel this broke?

Do you make too much to feel this broke?
As a financial coach, I hear this often when a client is frustrated that they “make good money” or “work too hard” to feel this broke, not have enough to make ends meet, or do the things they want to do.
 
If this is you, know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE and that there is hope for you and your family. More than half of Americans report that they live paycheck to paycheck. If they missed one paycheck, they are not sure what they would do. 
 
This is no way to live. 
God has so much more for us. 
He didn’t create us to be constantly working, in debt, and afraid. 
And yet stress, fear, guilt, shame are all too common emotions of my clients.
 
Although every situation is different

Continuing the Journey... Beyond FPU

Continuing the Journey... Beyond FPU
I shared in a previous post about my family's journey that began with Financial Peace University, which is now part of Ramsey+.  I have had the privilege to start that journey with many families over the years. 

The course walks you through the 7 Baby Steps and educates you on many topics that directly affect your financial health and protecting your family.  Even with "gazelle intensity" sometimes those baby steps are so little... it takes time. 

What are the 7 Baby Steps? .... I am glad you asked!!

Baby Step 1: Save $1000 starter emergency fund
Baby Step 2: Pay off all non-mortgage debt
Baby Step 3: Fully fund your 3-6 month emergency fund
Baby Step 4: Save for retirement
Baby Step 5: Save for children's education (I often call this the optional one)
Baby Step 6: Pay off your home early (this is where my family is at as off today)
Baby Step 7: Build wealth and give (THE GOAL!! ask me why money isn't "bad"- I dare you)

But I have come to notice... when someone graduates FPU they are often still on baby step one, sometimes baby step 2.... and I wonder if they did what my family did and that was take a few steps forwards then a step back and they go down a bunny trail then get back on course and repeat... you get the idea. 

Financial Peace University is an AMAZING program- all of my financial coaching clients who have gone through it have a jump start on their journey!!

But people are creatures of habit and do so much better with ACCOUNTABILITY and some who will WALK THE JOURNEY WITH THEM.

I FELT LIKE I WAS FALLING APART

I FELT LIKE I WAS FALLING APART

When I was in college, I couldn’t run up a flight of stairs, I took naps every day, suffered from chronic digestive issues, and dealt with a horrible monthly cycle that landed me in the hospital twice.

 

Finally diagnosed with hypothyroidism, meds helped but I still struggled with energy, thinning hair, skin issues, brittle nails, headaches, abnormal cycle, fatigue, and slow but steady weight gain. I had good days and bad days, sometimes good weeks and bad weeks. After the birth of one of my children, my levels were so off the nurses couldn’t believe I was still functioning. 

 

There were times I just wanted to sleep my life away. I didn’t have the energy to play with my children or clean my house.

 

It took over a decade for a doctor to tell me I indeed had Hashimoto's, an autoimmune disease when other doctors told me I didn’t. My body was attacking itself!

 

After doing research and consulting a functional doctor I realized that … there was something I could do to step out of that struggle

 

Learning ways to manage stress, watching what I ate, adding a few supplements, eliminating chemicals from my home and beauty products all made a huge difference in my life. A friend shared a company of plant-based products that went above and beyond in quality that was a game-changer for me and I found a functional doctor who listened and understood me.

 

I got my energy back! I felt good inside and out. My hair started growing back thicker, my skin cleared up and I for the first time ever, had a regular cycle that didn’t last forever or cause me to lose a day(s) of my life. I am so grateful to have natural plant-based options to turn to for all my family’s needs. 


I went from just surviving to thriving by making simple lifestyle changes to put our home and life in order.

 

And now I have the energy to create the life I desire for our family! And I am on a mission to help others do the same. For three months I decided to use myself as my own case study so that I could better document some of the changes.... 


TRUST ME- I could not wait for those three months to be over! 


                      My journey continues... Do you want to join me? 

 

Are you like me, struggling with symptoms that could be related to autoimmune?

28 Day Spring Cleaning Challenge

28 Day Spring Cleaning Challenge
It's that time of year again! If you are like me you are excited about SPRING! 
                                      Warmer weather, more sunshine, things growing and new birth.... 

Truth be told I'd like to live somewhere that is spring 6 months out of the year, LOL Honolulu maybe? But I digress...

Spring also means SPRING CLEANING, now try to contain your excitement for just a moment (insert sarcasm) - It doesn't have to be this huge task that we dread. I am positive(ish)

Expets actually say that spring cleaning can give you more energy and make you more productive in other areas of your life too! I am ready to put that theory to the test- want to join me?

I mean, nobody can really argue that a clean and organized home doesn't make you FEEL better, right?!

But that brings up a good point... if you home is in need of a good decluttering, I recommend you taking the time NOW before we begin to spring clean to declutter your home. 

Did you just instantly feel overwhelmed? anxious?  No worries boo- I got you! Check out my blog: 

CREATE YOUR PERSONAL DECLUTTER CHECKLIST


Back to spring cleaning...(I did it again smh)

This year I am launching a 28 Day Spring Cleaning Challenge- 28 days allows for a doable tasks each day that doesn't kill your entire day- especially if you have a day job, homeschool or care for others. And we get to do it with friends... 

My favorite way to do things for 5 reasons:

1. Sharing- I like to talk about stuff with friends
2. Accountability- yes, I need someone to kick my butt into shape sometimes too
3. Support- when I hit a snag, I have people to ask who are on the same journey
4.Comunity-let's me know I am not alone 
5. It's more fun!- duh!
