It’s a party! Well, at least a virtual party for those of us not attending FinCon 2014 in person. Debt Debs has graciously decided to host the Frugal FinCon Fiesta! A blog hop party to coincide with the actual 3-day event in New Orleans. The hope is to get a conversation started among us not attendees with bloggers and non-bloggers. So please click the link below and join our Fiesta! Or drop me a random question in the comment section below and I’ll gladly answer. You can tweet about our little party by using #FrugalFinConFiesta too! So let the Fiesta begin!
During this weekend event, the Fifth Annual Plutus Awards will be handed out. I’m truly honored to be nominated in the “Best-Kept Secret Persona finance Blog” category. I’m amazing that a blog that I started just over a year ago, to help keep my family accountable as we climb our way out of debt, to hopefully help someone out there in a similar situation as us, and maybe make a little side hustle money along the way blogging, has now reached the high of being included in such great company with so many other great bloggers. It’s truly a great community of great people. I hope I can experience the next conference in person. Best of luck to all nominees this weekend!
It’s an exciting time in our household. We are just weeks away from being debt free. Once complete we will shift our focus from debt repayment to building wealth. There are a lot of decisions to be made. I classify this as exciting because the level of interest by the entire family is at an all-time high. Everyone is excited that we will begin a new chapter and be living in debt will be behind us. I’ve enrolled in two continuing education courses at my local community college one on investing and finance to help springboard our next phase. My wife and I are communicating about our finances all the time, talking next steps, investing, college saving, etc. We are taking the challenge of debt freedom head on and it feels good!
