The Financial Side of my Story

Having shared this on my Facebook page and other platforms, I knew I wanted to write a blog post to go with my video ….


This year was a a big year of change with a new career path, a big cross-country move, and all the while I also had a major milestone coming this month that I’d been waiting for since 2010 …


The Financial side of my story is no different than many who are out there in this country and I share it to help others understand that no matter when the timing is, you deserve to live your dreams and you deserve to go after it even amidst the hard times:



THANK YOU for your support and allowing me to open up. Being the Type A person I am, I am on to our next phase of financial freedom so that we never lose momentum! If can do this, smiling and living life all of the while, I am no different than you!


This Christmas season let’s remember the FOUNDING piece of the holiday – our Lord was born and only through him was I able to get through this mess of a situation and grow on the other side of it.

    So with this I find today we have more in common. We are on our financial journey it may not be in the same form but not too different. Bondage of high interest and never ending debt. We recently paid off two vehicles which has now freed up income to start a snowball of payi off credit cards. I do not have one piece of furniture bought new. The couches we sit on are from a neighbor they were putting to the street. All our other pieces are second hand from family. Extravagant times are bike rides, walks on the beach or time spent with family over a meal. Simple life of sharing life to me this is what I hold dearest to my heart. Katrina you are so brave your video is so encouraging and I am so happy for you and Gary. Never stop being you!

    I love you girl and I for one can say I’ve first hand seen the transformation into the amazing person you are today. I too went through a similar situation when my wife lost her job at Citigroup. We pushed through it and made it to the end. I am still plotting my escape 😊 and fear of the unknown is what has always stymied my progress. I need to get over that. I love what you said about things vs. experiences. That’s huge. Things come and go, experiences are forever. You and Gary are golden and have set the standard in teamwork as a couple. You guys rock. Love you guys. ❤ John
