So, it was another special day for me this past weekend. It took a nudge from a friend to remind me of this one, however.
It is funny how time flies and how the little things become special. It was four years ago on Saturday that the first news article about me was published.
I am not a conceited man, how could I be when I put all of my mistakes out there for everyone to see.
So, I do not say this to even suggest that I am some sort of celebrity or any sort of big shot.
In truth, the reason why I did the article and why I blog is to let people know that you don’t have to accept lifelong, never-ending debt.
Just like part of the reason why I do not hide what I am doing (being an Urban Nomad) is to protest as to why this should make sense?
Why is it that living in an RV while holding down a full-time, good paying job is not only a good idea but the only realistic way for a work-a-day stiff to get ahead?
Yeah, there are all sort of other schemes and plans (most of them multi-level marketing, or other similar pyramid schemes).
I have said it before, when faced with fiscal difficulties, you can do one of four things:
1) Do Nothing and Hope (EG: Keep doing what you’re doing.).
2) Increase Your Income (EG: Get a second job, online income, etc.)
3) Decrease Your Expenses (EG: Live in a RV and don’t pay rent.)
4) Increase your Income AND Decrease Your Expenses. (As in do #2 and 3.)
So, again, I do not mark this anniversary to say how wonderfully fantastic that I am or how much of a big shot that I am. (Let’s face it, I still live in an RV).
I mark this anniversary to say that it is a special day in my journey, so I will humbly take not of it.
I also humbly submit that if you are mired in debt that you look at the above list and do some hard thinking.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
