One of the most important bits of advice I can give to anyone else who is trying to build wealth – pay off debt, save more…spend less…any of these things or all three. TRACK WHAT YOU ARE DOING! Why? because it is a loooooong road sometimes. There will be times when you are certain you are doing horribly and that you haven’t made any progress. Overspending, under-saving. But if you track and periodically come back to the numbers, you can see your progress and, I promise you, it’s not as bad as you think.
If you haven’t noticed, I have been a bit remiss in posting on this blog. Who knew that creating, interviewing, editing, and launching a podcast would take so much time! Well, certainly not this gal. I figured, meh, 4-10 hours a week no probs!….um, no…let’s say at least double that and some days it was triple and that was while still trying to not let my household devolve into utter pandemonium, or commit malpractice. Throw in back to school, my real estate business, as well as a murder trial and, well, yeah…I bit off a tad bit more than I could chew.
