Stepping Out on Faith

March 1st, 2020 at 02:09 am

Happy Saturday everyone,

It’s the last Saturday of the month. I had so much I needed to do, but was feeling blah.

I needed to complete my taxes, wrap up the income driven plan application for my student loans, balance my checking accounts, review my cash envelopes, bill my client and update my March budget.

I got most things completed that were on the list. I decided since I have the side hustle, it might be best to let an accountant complete my taxes vs TurboTax.

Just a few updates
The scholarship dilemma, has been taken care of, the organization decided to keep their promise. However, I’ll no longer do any business with them after this.

SO finally came and removed all his remaining things from the house. He’s officially out. I’d been asking and not pushing him to get his things and finally, I just said screw it, come and get the rest of your belongings or I’m dumping them. He looks terrible, he’s lost a ton of weight. I’m sure the stress of the mother and the kid, he has to decide for himself how and when he’ll handle those things.

I’ve also been attending a ton of professional/networking events. With my education, credentials and experience there is no reason why I should be making less than 100k a year. I’ve been selling myself short, and doubting myself for too long. I’ve recently had renowned people in the industry share my name as the one to follow in HR. I feel like, I got this. My next role, must be closer to home at least, $100k

I’m stepping out on faith.

    Wise move to keep moving up the ladder for income.

    Did you ever look into refinancing OR consolidating your student loans? I remember at one point you mentioned that you pay less than the interest that accumulates each month, which only leads to the debt growing. I 'think' that was you.

    You might want to watch Aja Dang on YouTube. She paid off over $100K of student loans. Even did her debt free scream on the Dave Ramsey show. I'd go back and watch her with her process to see if that might inspire you!

    @CCF I did review a few loan consolidations, but to be honest I was confused and overwhelmed by the terms. I’ll take another look at them. Thanks I’ll check out the videos.
