On top of having to pay for rent, groceries, gas, and transportation, your check is going straight to pay down your credit card debt and your student loan payments.
In your heart and in your spirit, you know that you are capable of wealth if you just had a way of reining in your spending, some guidance for eliminating your debt, and a support system of accountability.
You know that if you were given the tools and information to build wealth, you would take them and run with them.
But for now, instead of earmarking your income for wealth: building a plump retirement account, starting your online business, and building your 5-figure emergency fund, you spend all of your time worrying.
You are so frustrated and fearful about your finances that you find yourself unable to sleep.
You spent the time that you should be sleeping looking up at the ceiling wondering about when you will be able to make your financial reality match the vision that you have for your financial future.
In the pit of your stomach, you feel everything churning. You feel sick having to deal with all of your financial issues- how to quit living paycheck to paycheck, how to handle debt collectors, how to save when you don’t think there’s enough to save— alone.
And while you know that you shouldn’t, you start to compare yourself to all of your friends that seem to have it all.
