I have had to re edit the title of this page a few times as it covers a few areas, but I think this title really says a lot in itself.
In all of my years of charity work, fundraising work it is so humbling when you see those who cannot afford to give “give”. This is not to meant to be offensive in any way, I mean, who am I to say who cannot afford to give – I am, because I am one of the many who give without thinking, without counting the cost, whether we can afford to or not. We would give to another before our own need even if our need is greater! Together we are rich in different ways.
Welcome to my blog!
As the webpage address suggests “I am fed up of being poor” – this is not to point the finger at poor people and somehow suggest they are less of a human being than me, but the opposite – It is my obligation, my duty, my calling, to help those in poverty or are praying that phrase with bated fed up, hopeless breath..sighing “I am fed up of being poor.”
If you follow my site, thank you so so much, I love you more than I will ever be able to repay your kindness….if you are not a follower yet – I hope you soon will be.
Bit Of HIS STORY
Back in January, maybe just before, I was “invited” to a writing group, as someone who had told a friend that I was interested in writing. Now these were mostly already published authors of great books, online material, and here I was a small fry in a pan of big cheeses, no material, no idea, nadda, nothing, just some pumped up punk with a dream of writing something.
“Just write..” “Just do it”
So I began exploring with ideas…..and finally I came up with…..
yep – rags to riches story.. and this would be amazingly transformational, world changing, would get 1000 followers… I would be the king on my throne people…
and then… of course..one person points out….”
“but you are still in rags!”
so here is my back story…… I am not going to try to sell anyone anything or convince anyone my way is going to make anyone rich, because I am still in overdraft…. but people let me tell you this man is on a mission!!!!
I am researching, I am studying, I am building this blog as my journal ..real, live, on line off line journal of little old me just trying to better myself and in the process support others with what I am learning…. I am learning quick.
To recap –
I am no expert at being rich but I am an expert in being poor and having no money.- but getting there.
I am still in some debt,(just) (ish) (a small bit)(manageable) It is possible to get out as I have done!
I have paid off huge amounts of debt in less than 3 months.
I have discovered great resources, communities, businesses, bloggers…
I have found a new love(s)… an online love of blogging and search for passive income 9-5 job just is not where I want to be.
I have helped lots of people.
I have been helped by lots of people – this is hard and humbling especially if you are someone who is a “giver” (keep it clean people) receiving and accepting help can be very hard.
I have discovered that you discover who are genuine and sincerely want to help! – we all appreciate free things and generosity – we believe what goes around comes around. I am thankful for the huge support I have. It is good to get connected.
So……. this month has been a struggle because although it is my fault because I have overspent – I now have to put into place the strategies and tips I have been bleating on about in my posts..
I have to walk my own walk and talk less of my own talk less bleating!
So here are my Get out of debt 8 easy tips….
- Get help (could be internet, e.g google, you tube, websites) – Do some research…The throne room has some good resources.
- Do not be afraid to ask for help or too proud to receive help.
- Find ways to de-clutter and sell items – let us get some money coming in.
- If you have the opportunity to work, or do more hours – take it up... suck it up for a short while, even if it is not ideal – (Someone did suggest to me escorting – but that is not me.)
- Do a “talent and passions audit.” write down the things you are interested in doing and find ways to make money from it… i,e gaming, or walking the dog, or poetry, or writing, or selling…. seriously people there are ways of making money from doing almost anything.
- Do not talk about it….do it!
- Do not rely on others, trust in yourself.
- work work work! work for your dreams – it will pay off.
