Living My Big Dream

One More Year To Go

This month I have my birthday which also marks the anniversary of my financial freedom goal. Two years down and one more to go.

For those of you who weren’t with me when I started, my goals are:

  1. Be free of all unsecured debt – I’ve actually come pretty far with this and I’m fairly certain that I’ll be able to pay the rest off by next year or sooner.
  2. Earn $1,000 more a month than needed for living expenses – This one isn’t going as well. The economy hit my husband’s jobs hard and he lost hours at both. Although my Internet Marketing business is making more money than ever, our expenses (such as property taxes and mortgage) have gone up. I’m in the process of opening a “mother’s helper” service in the hopes of making extra money.
  3. Have a savings, retirement and investment accounts – Well, technically I have all three. They just don’t have any money in them. Good thing I have a year to work on it.

It’s going to take hard work to achieve everything I want to. I hadn’t counted on the recession hitting as hard as it did. But I know that if anyone can do it, my family and I can do it.
