If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you’ve probably been following a few posts I’ve written about my goal to be “debt free by December” – as in, this month, of 2012. I didn’t quite get rid of all my debt – but I did pay off $20,000 in consumer debt, including debt I owed to friends and family who helped me out during rough times.
Next year, I plan to tackle the rest of my debt – over $40k in student loans and the remainder of my car loan. Over the course of 2012, I learned how to make enough money to pay the bills, still buy coffee everyday, eat healthy (which, let me tell you, isn’t cheap) and still pay down a signficant chunk of my debt every month.
I also made mistakes along the way – especially during the first half of the year. I made sacrifices to make enough money to make this a reality – sacrifices that often impacted my friends, my family, and my health. These are mistakes I regret - and in 2013 I vow to not repeat, and find ways around to make the goal of Debt Free by December a reality – while still living, and so I can live, a life that I love.
And for 2013, I’m inviting you to learn from my success – and my mistakes – as I pay down the rest of my debt with Debt Free by December. $40k is a lot, and I know that many people don’t even make $40k in a year. Your debt may only be one credit card maxed out at $5,000 – but paying that off can be just as burdensome as that $40k is to someone who makes six figures. Last year I developed templates, worksheets, budgets, and plans to help myself stay on track.
And now I want to share those with you, as well as my journey. In the Debt Free by December program, you’ll get access to all of this exclusive content, plus weekly updates with my financial status and analysis – what’s working, what’s not, and how I’m going to do better or fix things. I’ll share how I’m going to make more money, what debt I’m paying off next (and why) and what goals I’m setting next. You’ll also get access to an exclusive Facebook group to ask questions and learn from each other. But most importantly, you’ll see exactly how someone just like you is getting out of debt without taking a single drastic measure.

Stop drowning in debt – and start living a life that you love.
