Are you ready to make some real money moves?

You may be in debt and feel like you are not sure what to do about it. Carrying a ton of debt may make your anxiety and stress levels rise. Being overwhelmed with debt can make it hard to feel like you are moving forward. 


I've been where you are, and some simple steps can help you successfully get rid of your debt. 


Change your mindset 


Throw out everything that has kept you from moving forward. If you have negative thought patterns that tell you that you can't reach your goals, you must program some new healthy self-talk. Get rid of everything unhelpful that you've learned about money. Read books, watch YouTube videos, and join groups online or in your community that will teach you the basics about money. 


Find an accountability partner


Life is so much easier when you have someone on your side that understands your goals. Having an accountability partner is beneficial when times get hard, and you don't feel like you can push through to your goals. You can also learn and grow from each other. 


Know your numbers 


Knowing how much you bring and how much you spend helps you create a budget that works for your debt repayment goals. 


Face your debt 


Make a list of what you owe. Order the items from smallest to largest debt and start with your smallest amount owed. 


Times will get hard. Setbacks will occur, but stay calm and keep moving forward. In the end, you won't regret taking those hard steps.
