Aye! Just imagine me Milly rocking throughout this whole post because the month of March was basically lit! For starters, I was super busy preparing to defend my PhD Dissertation which I successfully did on March 24th! It’s still kind of surreal even to think that I’m officially a Doctor. I started on this journey in August of 2010, and almost seven years later it’s finally done!! When I actually stop to think about it, I see how doing this PhD has prepared me for the long haul of living Broke on Purpose. There are going to be several up’s…

Welcome to the first official Broke on Purpose Payoff Report of 2017 (the December roundup doesn’t count). I’ll be honest. I’ve had blinders on this entire month, between “he who must not be named” and grinding away at my dissertation I’ve just been focused on one thing, and that’s trying to maintain a sense of sanity. This is why you don’t see our signature duo picture above. I didn’t even realize January was over! It’s been a hard few weeks for me mentally.

We weren’t looking for any big life-changing things to happen we simply just wanted people to become more financially aware. The best way we knew to do this was to share our experience. One my personal…

Okay, so somehow the end up of the month snuck up on me. One minute I was eating leftover Turkey Pot Pie and the next I realize that I’m late on getting up on end of the month debt pay off report. It’s as if time doesn’t exist and one day just melds into the next. t I know in the last payoff report I was all like “we’re going to work like crazy to bring in extra income,” and that was my initial goal going into November, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized I…

Our theme song for the month should be Rick Ross’s “Everyday I’m Hustlin’” because that’s exactly what we did this month. I mentioned in September’s Debt Payoff Report that it was officially Q4 and this was the time when digital media influencers made the bulk of their income. For the most part, I wait for brands to come to me but this month I’ve been sending out all sorts of feelers which resulted in securing some great campaigns. I also want to thank everyone who has sent over their own debt payoff reports to me in the form of emails…
