SERIES: I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. VALUES Part 4

Welcome to another series at JosephSangl.com – I Was Broke. Now I'm Not. VALUES

In this series, I will be sharing what drives me.  The stuff that lights me on fire for helping others with their personal finances.

4.  VISION/CALL

This is the most important value for this crusade.  This is something that I am called to do.  It was a very clear call of God that led me to get my finances in order, fire myself from Corporate America, negotiate myself a massive pay cut, move my family eleven hours and five states, and embark on this crusade at NewSpring Church.

I am doing EXACTLY what I have been put on this earth to do.  No doubts.  No regrets.  I have never looked back.  I am burdened with a passion to help others take their finances to the next level.  I can not escape it.  I can not run from it.  I can not shirk it.  It keeps me awake at night.

My vision/call in words: To help others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible with their personal finances.  My current mission: Teach 100,000 people by October 2011.

3.  PASSION

I am a firm believer in being passionate about whatever I am doing.  I lived long enough working a J.O.B.  I ain't doing that anymore!  PASSION is a huge part of what I Was Broke. Now I'm Not. is about.  There are nearly a dozen trained volunteer financial counselors helping with this crusade, and you can bet that each one of them is passionate about helping others take their finances to the next level.

I am PASSIONATE about seeing lives changed.  I am PASSIONATE about seeing hope restored.  I am PASSIONATE about helping others take their finances to an entirely new level.  That is what this is all about.  It is why this web site exists.  It is why the tools are FREE.  It is why I wrote I Was Broke. Now I'm Not.  It is why I write a weekly newspaper column.  It is why I produce a weekly podcast.  It is why I travel the nation teaching and speaking.  It is why I train volunteer financial counselors.

I am more than a little FIRED UP about this crusade to help others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible with their personal finances!

SERIES: I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. VALUES Part 2

2.  HOPE

Through NewSpring Church, we have been able to provide hundreds of people with FREE one-on-one personal financial counseling.  You don't have to be a member or attender to receive counseling.  This church exists to make an impact on the community and to reach the hopeless who are outside of our doors and do not know where to turn for help.

In these appointments, there are many people who show up completely hopeless.  They are downcast.  They hang their heads.  There are tears of sorrow and regret.  They literally do not know where to turn for help.  In many cases, the counseling session is the last resort because they know that this will be a time where they have to reveal all of their financial improprieties.  That is HARD!

But as the meeting progresses, and they realize that they are not going to be condemned …  WOW!  I am getting FIRED UP writing about it!  As we put together a spending plan that applies INCOME – OUTGO = EXACTLY ZERO and they see that they really can WIN with their money, HOPE IS RESTORED.  Then we calculate their Debt Freedom Date, and they see that they can be debt free in eighteen to forty-eight months – they are ready to fight a bear with their bare hands!  HOPE HAS BEEN RESTORED!!!

Yep.  In case you could not tell, HOPE is an I Was Broke. Now I'm Not. VALUE!

SERIES: I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. VALUES Part 1

Welcome to another series at JosephSangl.com – I Was Broke. Now I'm Not. VALUES

In this series, I will be sharing what drives me.  The stuff that lights me on fire for helping others with their personal finances.

1.  Life Change

Way back in December 2002 when Jenn and I made the decision to break free financially, it required life-changing decisions.  It took us fourteen months to become debt-free except for our house (we are within three years of paying off the house now).  Our lives were changed!

I have stated before that if you experience a life-changing experience, you will have a changed life!  It sounds basic to say it, but it is SO TRUE!  I experienced a life-changing experience of saying "I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!!!" and our lives were changed.

Because of that series of life-changing events, I was able to fire myself from Corporate America in 2006 and embark on a crusade to help others experience this same life-changing stuff at NewSpring Church!

Now I have been on this crusade full-time for twenty months, and I have been able to teach this stuff to thousands of others.  And guess what?  I have seen the same life-change that has taken place in my life!  That AB-SO-LUTE-LY FIRES ME UP!!!!!!

Life change NEVER gets old!
