There is a wealth of information out there, but how do you sift through the good and the bad? I’ve learned over the years that the experts are always the ones who have been through it and have come out the other side a success. I’m not going to take financial advice from someone that is in debt and hasn’t come to that place of success, being debt free. That’s why I won’t be giving out financial advice. I will only be sharing my journey as my husband and I struggle out of debt and into the promised land. I know this could take months, if not years. There’s always a first step that needs to be taken, though.
Our first step came when we decided to start reading Dave Ramsey’s books. I actually got two of his books from a second-hand store for $1. They sat on our bookshelf for years before I finally cracked the first one, Financial Peace, open. We’re well on our way to financial peace with this gem.
