After developing a solid plan and becoming super motivated to overcome your debts, you're ready to move on to the next stage.
Stage 5 is where you start getting your plan off the ground, making it happen, and actually paying off your debts.
In today's episode, we'll talk about how to find ways to increase your income, how to focus on one debt at a time, and how to stay motivated to pay off your debts faster.
I'm Ashley Patrick, ex detective turned debt-free CEO of my very own business and stay at home mom of three. Not too long ago, my dreams of staying at home with my kids seemed impossible. I thought I'd have to stay miserable in a high stress demanding job, just so I could retire someday.
After gaining the confidence in my own ability to manage my family's finances and a simple step-by-step plan to make it happen, I was able to pay off $45,000 in just 17 months, which then allowed me to finally quit my job, stay at home with my kids, and build a debt-free business.
Now, my mission is to help moms like you conquer debt and free themselves from the mental load of handling their family's finances.
“When you are more intentional with your overall plan of what you wanna do, including after paying off debt, it's a whole lot easier to stay on track through the long term. And so that means not depriving yourself of all the joys in your life while just because you have debt or while you're paying off debt.”
