It's Financial Freedom Friday Everybody❗❗❗⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This week we are moving onto Step 3️⃣ of my 1️⃣2️⃣ Step guide to Financial Freedom💸⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Last week's ⁠Step 2️⃣ was: ⁠Create a list of expenses. Budget your spending. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's important to know how much you can spend and on what. This way all your essentials like rent and food are taken care of first. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It also helps you to not overspend or splurge on unnecessary shit. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So once you have your budget list all written out it's time to move onto Step 3️⃣.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Which is: To pay off the plug (credit cards) in full.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Being in debt is one of the most detrimental things to your assets. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you have credit cards or high-interest loans you NEED to be on top of those payments.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It’s also very important that you pay ON TIME 🕰️ and IN FULL 💰.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Being on point with your payments is so important in building up good credit. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And having good credit is essential in life. You need credit for a whole lot of things.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You need good credit to buy/lease a car, to buy/rent a home or apartment. You need good credit for business loans. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Shit, you even need good credit to establish utility services with certain companies. Even employers sometimes will conduct a credit check before hiring you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Pretty much, you need good credit to live comfortably. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And if you’re really serious about gaining Financial Freedom then you 100% need to maintain a good credit score. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
For a very long time I didn’t give a shit about my credit. I paid no attention to it and because of that it was absolutely terrible.⁠⠀
Four years ago after I got sober and started getting my life together I started focusing on bringing up my credit score.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I knew the type of life I wanted to live. I had a clear vision and goals. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And in order to obtain the life I wished of I knew I had to start with slowly building my credit back up. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Have you ever had to rebuild your credit?
