Financial Literacy Month: Getting back on track
Hey ladies and gents! I’m back again with another financial literacy month series! 2018 has been one heck of a year, and we are now in our last quarter of the year. Can you believe that 2019 is just around the corner!?!?!? Well, I’m ready to conquer some amazing financial goals after going through some hurdles this year, what about you?
So let give you an idea of how my year went. The first month or two I was strictly hustling with Uber eats and my business. I barely had time to blog because I was constantly on the road working or having meetings and getting things done. Then I managed to connect with an agency that gave me a full-time position on contract. Finally, in October they wanted to put me on their team (finally getting the pay I deserve). So now I have my job, my business and I’m starting to do Uber eats again so my financial goals will be able to be accomplished. Throughout the year I went from becoming consumer debt free to add on more debt (face-palm); I got myself a decent car that I financed and went on a luxurious vacation. Once I had secured the position at work I realize that I need to really get back on track with becoming financially stable. I also heard from other family and friends that wanted to get back on track with their finances. So I thought why not make this series about getting back on track!!
So let’s get familiar on why Financial Literacy month is so important. How many of us have ever had an urge to go on a trip or buy an item that was out of your budget? How many of us actually have $500 or less saved up for a rainy day? How many of us rely on a credit card to make ends meet? If you are putting your hands up for all or some questions, this is why it’s important. Let’s get back on track to become financially stable.
So this month is really important to me! The main goal is to Learn, Educate, Achieve, Discuss, Execute, Research and Share (LEADERS, see what I did there) from each other. So the first step is just tuning in on this month-long journey. I will not only be having my weekly posts but also share personal experiences, provide articles from others and videos (mine and others). I would also love to have a heart to heart discussion whether it is privately done or shared through my Social Medias or website, which will have my tips, advice or feedback. Remember the main goals are to become LEADERS for the future, and we can’t do it alone!

Normally I have an agenda of what will be discussed throughout the month. But I thought to switch it up. I will be writing new blogs but re-introducing old ones I have written. So stay tune! If there’s anything you would like to hear, please feel free to express.
All I ask is for everyone to share this as much as possible and to participate the best that we can. Remember Let us be financially fit together!
