6 months and counting!
After six months of hard work, planning, and discipline, we've reached the end of Project Money 2017! Some would think that the hard part is over. But I think the hard part is just beginning. You see, for 6 months, we've had a coach and a competition to keep us motivated. Without those factors, it may be easy to fall back into old patterns. So really, it will be a new challenge for us to continue the motivation we found during Project Money moving forward.
After Project Money, we are pretty much out of debt, have our emergency funds built, and are getting set up to make our money work for us. Best of all, Moriah and I have achieved the "Money Marriage" we had set out to accomplish from the beginning of this process. So when I look back 6 months ago I think, "Why would we go back to that?" And that's my motivation! To keep moving forward!
I really have nothing new to share in this final blog, but this final piece of advice. Be honest with yourself when it comes to your money. Like me, you may feel you got it under control, and perhaps you do. But maybe after taking an honest look, are there areas where you can make adjustments for the better? We would never have accomplished the things we did without that honesty.
In closing, allow me to be cliché for a moment. $10,000 or not, we are already winners for being a part of this experience. We hope that our journey has inspired you in some way to take control of your financial wellbeing. Thanks Rachel for the straight talk. Thank you Summit for the opportunity. The competition may be over, but the journey is just beginning! (Lol! So cliché!)
