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…

This past month we made a massive switch with how we’re paying off our debt.  Since starting Broke on Purpose we’ve been using the Debt Snowball and this method has helped us pay off over $41K in debt so far. It’s seriously a great method for when you’re just getting started as you can see your progress so much quicker and once you see something is paid off…

  Paying off debt is a marathon, not a race. This is something I have to constantly remind myself of. I’ve gotten to a point where I absolutely can’t stand that fact that we are debt. Well, nobody likes to be in debt, but for me, it’s like that itch you can’t scratch. I just want to get it over with, yet we still have so far to go. We ended the year 2015 on a high note paying off over $29,000 in debt. We wrote the vision and put it out into the atmosphere that our goal for 2016…
