Happy First Birthday My Journey to Millions

It is shocking that I wrote my first post the first week of August one year ago!


In that post I discussed my credit card debt, and how much I hated it.  Well, the Wife and I in honor of fighting off the credit card demons for one full year we are raiding some of the savings to finish it up this week!  I will have conquered close to $17,000 in credit card debt in one year.

How did I Eliminate my Credit Card Debt?

This is the list of items that I followed to get rid of my debt over the past year:

  1. I needed to understand who I was and what I wanted.
  2. I talked to my Wife and we created a plan, together .  I’d like to say thank you to her since she is my greatest asset.
  3. I started this blog so I would be accountable to everyone that reads it.  The funny part is, at the beginning of the blog I had no traffic but even the small amount of traffic made me want to succeed.  THANK YOU.
  4. I created a modified Debt Snowball.
  5. I read all those GREAT blogs on my blogroll.
  6. I kept my eye on the prize – NO CONSUMER DEBT!

I read all the following blogs EVERY day.  They are great writers, people and inspirations:

Check out my Favorite Posts of the Past Year

Over the past year, I have written just shy of 200 posts.  Below are a couple of my favs.  Some have comments, others have none, but I was proud of these posts.

Is there anything you want to see in the next year from me? Is it more of my personal stuff?  Is it more estate planning information? More tax information? more of my heated political views?
