“The Debt Princess” began at a moment of desperation. I was at rock bottom and couldn’t even begin to imagine how I would get out of the hole I was in. I had debt that I couldn’t pay on, student loans that I hadn’t paid on in years, no job, I lived at home with my mother & my two young boys and my car had just gone its last mile. I sat in my room and cried for a good two hours. At which point, I wiped the tears, tossed the tissues and came up with an idea.
I developed the “What Not to Do” platform a few months after I took to blogging. I decided that the best thing I could do for people is to show them how much I’ve screwed up & where it got me. I hoped (and still do) that people would read my story and use that information to spur their own reflection into their finances.
“What NOT to Do” is meant to be used as examples to others on how poor choices can affect you for years. It can be used with young adults as they are learning about finances and debt. It can be shown to teens as they approach moving out and living on their own. “What NOT to Do” is for the adult who hasn’t thought too much about their own finances.” The series can help others understand how debt can destroy you.
And it’s for me. Writing “What Not to Do” pieces helps me make sense of my choices. The articles found on this blog help me purge the emotions of my situation and allow me to move on. Moving on and tackling this massive debt!
I hope you’ll read my blog and stick around to watch me overcome this situation I’ve put myself in. Maybe, along the way you’ll learn something and reflect on your own financial situation.
To get you started on my blog, I’d like to suggest a few posts for you to read.
