I'm a Smart Money Squad contributor for GOBankingRates.com – “a personal finance resource designed to make learning about money and managing your finances more fun and less intimidating.” Here's my latest contribution, or see all of my Smart Money Squad Articles.
Since I started blogging about my debt-free journey a few months ago, I’ve been interviewed about my story for multiple sites and even a podcast.
I’ve talked widely about my journey into debt (and back out of it), and shared my most embarrassing money mistakes — no holds barred, no details left out.
This was not without a great deal of internal conflict. I knew that by sharing all of this, people I knew personally would find out about all the stupid things I had done with my money. I could lose respect. I could lose friends.
