Look, I know trying to bring in extra money for your family is no small feat. When we went from a two-income household down to a one-income household, the transition really put a strange on our finances and our marriage.
We had to make the incredibly difficult decision to sell our dream home and leave the expensive area we loved. It wasn’t easy, but it became a necessity since we decided to have my wife stay at home with our son.
Since making the commitment, we began to thrive. However, it was slow process. We had to pay off $30,000 in credit card debt … then another $10,000 after that. We kept thinking we could live our old lifestyle of eating out and buying whatever we wanted, but that wasn’t sustainable.
We had to downsize our lifestyle just like we downsized our income.Read more

Do you bloggers actually make money?
In one answer: yes.
You know, it makes me laugh when people scoff at online content creators. They really think people can’t make a full time living. They think they lie to their readers about their income figures — or they come from shady sources.
I’ve actually had someone say to me that people who make $100,000+ per month with blogs or podcasts are really selling drugs. WTF?!?
Now, I won’t say I didn’t have my doubts. While I believed 5 or 6 figures were possible, I wasn’t exactly sure how to get there.
Allow me to give you a quick walk-through of how I did it — and why I did it.Read more
We have a great contributed post today on getting on the path to financial freedom by getting out of debt. Let us know your experiences and thoughts in the comments!
Financial freedom is often described as having both the time and money to live the life you want to live – essentially it could be summed up by the phrase “life on your terms”. For some people this could be to watch each and every sports match their child participates in, whilst for others, it could be to travel the world in five star luxury.
Either way, money has been described as being similar to oxygen in that it’s an essential fuel we require to live, and rather than strive for more, more more – it might pay to look at the destination we actually want to get to; the place that will make us feel content and satisfied, emotionally, and then work out the most efficient way to fuel your tank.Read more
