Emotionally, Physically, Spiritually, & Financially (Broke to Debt Free)
Emotionally, Physically, Spiritually, and Financially Broke to Debt Free
This story is about much more than paying off debt. This is a story about hitting rock bottom and at that moment you find clarity. Deanna Broaddus found herself constrained in the chains of drugs and alcohol and in her darkest moment she shares what she saw. “I had a vision where I saw three paths. On the first path, I saw myself rocking back and forth in an insane asylum and I knew if I kept doing what I was doing this is where I was headed. On the second path, I saw complete darkness and recognized this choice to be death. Then on the third path, I saw a tiny glimmer of light and knew this to be God.”
That is where path changed and it was a twisty path where she lost her house to foreclosure, made poor relationship choices, and racked up a lot of debt. She didn’t give up. She found a new tribe of people in the Financial space and worked on cleaning up her debt and developed new financial habits that lead her to paying off $47,763 in debt. Her self discovery brought her back to where she could once again enjoy life.
Deanna said, “It’s crazy how quick you can start to build wealth when there is no debt holding you back”. There is where she started to invest for her retirement and today she is working with recovering women who are wanting to get better at money management and mental wealth.
As she put it, “taking the time to be intentional and make changes is so worth.”
So if you are doing just enough to stay afloat or your finances are bleeding then you need to make the change today to stop the bleeding and stop floating around.
You will enjoy this episode and I am hoping it will help you start to take action and realize it is never too late to start saving and it is never too late to start investing in yourself.
