Here's what I'm up to now...
Inspired by Derek Sivers
It's not a secret, I've been seriously neglecting the blog for the last few months. I really don't have an excuse except for maybe I take on too many projects at one time and let things slip through my hands. Of course client pieces come first, then my new private Facebook group second, everything else after that takes back seat (or in the trunk).
You can see my newest client posts over on Contently where I've been keeping my portfolio updated. This winter vacation I'll be updating this site, small changes of course, but at least it will get some updates. The biggest news is that I've finally tamed my debt down to nearly nothing.
Current Money Projects:
Paying down my debt!
Funny story, I called my bank this morning to ask if I've made enough payments on my loan to be far enough ahead so I can skip December's payment. The woman on the other side of the phone laughed and said, yes, your payments are good until December 2018. I asked her to repeat that since I could have misheard her (after all, December is right around the corner). Yup, she said, "You don't have to make a payment until a year from now." This is Hotness!
Below you can see that my next payment-due date is nearly a year from now! I think I'll take December off and use that extra money to buy Christmas gifts for friends and family. Then I'll pick it up in January and be done with it!
Since Dec 2016, I've been working extra hard at paying off nearly $23,822 of debt. Here's how much I have left!
I've been tracking my debt pay down in Undebt.it, the best online software to track all your debt (and believe me, I've tried a ton of debt-tracking apps and software).
I'm currently reading 10% Happier by Dan Harris.
