Today we are going to talk about finances. More specifically our journey with budgeting, paying off debt, trimming expenses and saving. Then for our Q&A session we were asked about passive income and what we do to pay the bills.
I believe money is one of the biggest barriers to intentional living. Too often the order and priority of our lives revolves around money or the lack thereof. We often choose our careers because of money, stay in our careers because of money and stifle our dreams because of money. Things like debt and income stability become barriers to really pursuing the life we are passionate about. If you’re in doubt ask yourself this question: If finances were not an issue would you continue your present work tomorrow?
These barriers with finances were true for us and we worked really hard to break past these obstacles. While we have cleared some barriers money continues to be a struggle at times. So that is what we are going to be discussing today, how we became intentional with our finances which helped us realize the simple life we wanted and enjoy today.
