UPDATE: Financial Learning Experience – Dayton, Ohio!

I had a GREAT time teaching the Financial Learning Experience at Word of Faith Christian Ministries in Dayton, Ohio!

I love being able to share what has happened in my life!  I was BROKE!!!  Now, I'm NOT!!!

I know that EVERY TIME I teach these practical tools that someone's life is going to be changed.  That someone's world is going to get ROCKED!  I know because I see it in their eyes.  I hear it in their voices.  I see HOPE being restored!

Word of Faith Christian Ministries ==> I can't wait to hear the stories of achieving debt freedom, starting savings accounts for emergency funds, beginning investing (remember what $100/month can do?!!!), and even more the stories of marriages restored, relationships renewed, and the freedom that is obtained by managing your money well.

Thank you so much for allowing me to have the opportunity to teach!!!  The hospitality was truly "out the box"!  I was blown away!  Thanks to Pastors Robert and Jamila Lyons, Crystal and Otis Sheppard, and the entire WOF family!!!

Financial Crisis Approaching!

A financial crisis is approaching your finances. Are you ready?  Are you prepared?

You are going to be laid off from work.  What do you do now?  Are you protected?

Your child is going to be very sick.  Are you financially prepared to deal with this?

The car is going to break down.  Ready for it?

The air conditioner is going to stop cooling the house.  What will you do? 

FOLKS – You WILL have a financial crisis if you are not appropriately prepared!

Here is what a prepared person looks like:

  • 3 to 6 months of EXPENSES saved up into a savings account
  • Living substantially below income
  • Saving money every single month
  • Has a plan for each KNOWN, UPCOMING expenses (property taxes, annual insurance premiums, vacation, Christmas, etc.)

Don't allow yourself to continue living life with the STRESS of paycheck-to-paycheck!  I used to live that way.  Frankly, it SUCKED!  I hated it!  I despised it!  Yet, I CHOSE to live that way and not change my spending habits for over six years.  The day Jenn and I took action was the day we stopped being broke.

When will you take action to change your financial future?

I am PUMPED UP to be in Dayton, Ohio TOMORROW to teach the Financial Learning Experience!!!  If you are anywhere near the Dayton area, I would love to meet you there!  You can sign up for the event HERE.

Home Upgrades – Which to choose?

Jenn and I purchased a thirty-year-old home in February.

This is not like a new home.  This house has neat features like creaks, leaks, painted over wallpaper, rotten decks, aged/dated appliances.  It also lacks the wonderful feature of "maintenance-free lifestyle".

It has been VERY interesting doing the home updates/upgrades/repairs thing.  However, the to-do list is over 5,130 items long.

We have decided to spend some money to upgrade something on the house soon.  I have heard that updating the kitchen and the master bathroom is the smartest thing to do because it is what really helps resale value.

So, Jenn and I are debating which of these two projects to do next.

1) Update the kitchen (complete tear-out, new flooring, cabinets, appliances, and restructure walls)

2) Update the master bathroom (complete tear-out, new flooring, cabinets, tub, toilet, vanities, and restructure walls)

I would love to hear of other's experiences with this!  How much did you spend?  Did it help resale value?  What lessons did you learn?

I am PUMPED UP to be in Dayton, Ohio this coming SATURDAY to teach the Financial Learning Experience!!!  If you are anywhere near the Dayton area, I would love to meet you there!  You can sign up for the event HERE.
