Personal Finance for Solopreneurs & Side Hustlers
Budgeting and Saving Like a Boss!
In 2014, I decided I had enough!
I had a great paying job and was finally making it on my own. But I was living paycheck to paycheck and was in over $30,000 in debt.
When it came to money, I did it all! Repossession, bankruptcy, student loans, credit card debts, an underwater mortgage. I survived all of them and it took me nearly 15 years to wise up about money and make changes.
But you hear stories like this all the time! It sounds like a “happily ever after” ending, right!?
Well, it’s not. And although I survived that repossession and bankruptcy, and paid off my student loans, I only recently paid off the last of my credit card debt in March of 2017. I've got 9 months left to pay down the rest of my debt but I still struggle with spending and budgeting. It will be be an ongoing opportunity to manage my finances properly so I don't get into the same mess as I did in the past.
So, In 2015, I started blogging and freelancing in an effort to learn a new skill that could lead to one day becoming an independent worker. I also did it to make extra money and fast-track my debt pay off plan.
I became a solopreneuer/side-hustler and had to learn very quickly how to manage my money better. Both for my personal and business livelihood.
