Approximately FOUR months ago I was extremely confused, and severely stuck… BUT God…

Life isn’t always easy, but lately it has been extremely difficult. I’ve been through some challenging conditions that have taken its toll on my business endeavors. These difficulties have really placed a roadblock in my life, and it wasn’t exactly easy to overcome. But like all things in life, you learn from it all, and during these challenging past few weeks, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned that in business, as well as with your finances, when you make a mistake or stumble over life’s roadblocks and challenges, you must look toward you inner strength to continue to walk by faith in whatever purpose God has for us. For it’s through Him that we overcome anything that’s blocking us from reaching any and all potential He has in store for us. Everyone has a purpose in this life, we just have to listen and rely on our inner strength and faith to find it.

Although it may be hard, it is necessary to leave behind what is safe and tackle those challenges head on to embrace what has been promised by God. When I was down, I was down and believe me when I say it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. There were so many times I just wanted to give up and let the challenges conquer me, but I knew I had to fight and stay strong because I knew God’s purpose was waiting for me at the end.

If the past has taught me anything, it’s to follow God’s will because in the end, it always turns out perfectly. It is often the “just getting there” that’s hard. It’s true what they say about how when one door in life closes, a window magically opens, but it doesn’t “magically” open because God is the one opening it for you. He provides another path for you to take that will bring you exactly what you NEED.

Let’s just put it this way, I had nothing left but to trust God and his plan for me. When I was down to a minus zero in my finances, all I had left was what He promised. I had to have faith that he would provide exceedingly and abundantly more than I could ever think or even ask for. He promised to never leave me nor forsake me and so I gave up and surrendered all my hardships to Him.

He left me no other choice but to believe that I was being put through all this for a reason; that there was a greater purpose for my current suffering. I just had to fall to my knees and pray that he gives me the strength to endure so that I may live up to whatever reason I was put here on the earth to do.

And here I am now, still moving on in pursuit of my dreams while experiencing the biggest challenge of my life…all in faith, of course!

Sometimes, what we believe for US is not God’s BEST. The only way to find out is to completely lean on HIM by putting all our dreams at the altar.

Trust and Believe, things will fall in place.

Here you will find 4 simply Mid-Year Strategies you can implement immediately that can have a profound affect on your finances and IMPACT your credit scores.

1. Save at least 10% ten percent of your income. If you don’t pay yourself first, there won’t be any left over at the end of the month to save.

Set up an automatic transfer to an account to make it easy.

Think about it. It makes sense. 

2. Pay at least the minimum on your credit cards, and pay off all that you can. Making at least the minimum payment ON TIME accounts for 35% of your credit score, though paying off the entire balance each month can save you hundreds in interest.

3. Contribute enough to your 401(k) to get the maximum company match. Your kids can get help to pay for college, but NO ONE will help pay for your retirement. If you’re not taking advantage of a company match, you’re turning down a yearly bonus from your employer.

Think about it. It makes sense. 

4. Review your insurance policies and update as needed. Review your life, health, home, auto and disability insurance policies. Make sure you have cost replacement coverage on home and auto insurance, as well as good liability coverage.
