Yes I said it! We are headed back to the Midwest next month. My husband, Chris has always been in sales and now God has blessed him with an opportunity to manage and lead people as a District Sales Manager at Mylan Specialty. This new opportunity takes us to Indianapolis! We are excited about this journey and our next chapter! We will be driving distance to many relatives which is something we’ve desired for a long time.
Chris and I have been in Arizona since August 19th 1998. We packed up immediately after our August 8th wedding and honeymoon to begin our new marriage in Phoenix. And it has been amazing!! I worked for Motorola for 7 years and began my financial coaching business in 2005 after my husband and I were free from our debt.
I’m so grateful for being able to do this business and help so many people through coaching, this newsletter, workshops, etc. And yes I will continue these efforts in our new location. Tailor-Made Budgets is only changing location.
Truly, I’m not going anywhere!
What does this mean for you? Of course, this is bittersweet (I’m leaving many friends and family behind in Arizona), but it definitely is not the end. It is just a new beginning for me and my family! Of course, I will continue my online newsletter and will continue to support you, as always. Know that all of you, my faithful newsletter readers, have helped me to become who I am today. I am thankful for your role in my life and pray that God will continue to bless you as he has done with me and my family.
To your financial success!
2012 is Leap Year! We are always looking for more time, more hours in our day, or just one day to “catch up” on something. Well now you have it! What are you going to do with it?
My recommendation is for you to set aside some time for an activity that you normally never seem to have time for. Think about your goals for 2012. Did you commit to paying off some debt? Well February 29th is a good day to add up how much debt you have and determine how much extra you will put towards paying it off. Is 2012 the year you decided to really commit to a budget? Why don’t you make February 29th the day you wrote out your March budget?
Personally, I have scheduled an appointment to get my business marketing back on track. I am also spending some time watching an educational and inspiring movie with my daughters to celebrate black history month.
I know you may have to work. I know the kids still need to go to school. Yes I know that life must go on even though we have an extra day. But this is 24 extra hours in our year! What you do with it may change the course of your year dramatically! Let’s use it wisely!
