Hi, ladies. My husband has done it again and written a 2nd book. You can get the FREE download this week until Saturday. Fire From HeavenWe have a little surprise up our sleeves. My husband's birthday is on October 24th and as a gift we are giving the people that attend the party a copy of his book. That will be so much better than receiving gifts. I can't wait to see the look on his…See More
"I love your acronym on coupons. It is a great idea. I agree with the other ladies if you show your faith and your walk with Christ you already teaching about God. God can more in ways that we can not image, that is why I love him so…"
"God can always be the end result - we can touch people in more ways than we know by weaving in our faith in what we do. Finances is a great way to reach those who feel distant from God. While I don't talk specifically all about God in our talks…"
I was able to get on a local news station in our town talking about how to save money for back 2 school shopping. It was so much fun!!!I have taught many coupon classes but have never had the chance to talk on this topic. It is so fun helping people save money - whatever that means.I have an upcoming coupon class and I have a possible client on Saturday for financial coaching. I never would've thought that couponing would open so many doors to help my business.I am still continuing as a 3rd…See More
"Thanks, Jen for being blunt! That's exactly what I need. I totally agree with what you have said and have backed off a little. Just doing coupon classes and have a possible client lined up:) I always make sure to give God the…"
"Whitney, I'm new to 48 days and was intrigued by your topic. I am not a couponer but have friends who are and get amazing deals. That being said speaking is definitely a way share your topic, obviously the MOPS group would be a great…"
I am always thinking and I know you probably are, too. That is what we do. We are idea people. We think…and think...and think. So in my process of thinking, I thought I would start writing my thoughts down and call them quotes…because they are…quotes from me. (Ha…just noticed that the title of this looks like mosquitoes…lol)Anyway, I thought it would be neat if we shared our personal quotes here. Things we have said, thought up or wrote about. We can use each others’ quotes in our…See More
How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
My husband attended your training last week in Nashville. I have been listening to you ever since he got back since I am interested in starting my own debt counseling business. Thank you for all that you do to help others!
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am employed through our local school system. I have been a teacher for almost (9) years. Some of that was spent working part-time when my second son was born.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I have realized this past year that God has been speaking to me about doing more. My husband and I have taught Financial Peace University for the last four years at our church and I LOVE talking about budgets and saving money. I realized that this is my passion. I am always sad when we have to stop FPU, but there's no way we could do it all year while working two full-time jobs. We don't charge anything for the class, but that doesn't even matter to me. I just enjoy seeing people who came in hopeless leave with a smile on their face ready to conquer their debt. We have impacted a lot of people and every year our number of attendees grows more and more. I have asked Greg about even teaching in the fall, but know that this can't be done or we would be completely exhausted and never see our children. Last year I sat down with two ladies and their homes and went through their budget. It was awesome! My goal is to have my business "The Fearless Heart" up and running this year so that I can start helping people save money and pay off debt.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to be happier. I come home from my work just exhausted and mentally drained. I may feel this same way as a counselor, but I am already a counselor. I feel like I do more counseling at my school than teaching. There are some days when I feel like I can't teach at all. There's just so much red tape that it just doesn't feel worth it anymore. I have been in this kind of "funk" when I come home from work. There are times when I feel like I don't want to discipline or even speak to my children because I have seen 150+ in one day. My kids don't deserve this kind of treatment. I have also started on blood pressure medication and I know it's from the stress of my job. I just want to be happy! I want to feel like I am making a difference and I would like a more flexible schedule. I want to go eat lunch with my kid during the day if I want to.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I love to motivate! I love teaching! I love helping people find the hope in a hopeless situation. I have always been this way. I used to assign one of my classmates homework back in Kindergarten. I have always had the mind of a teacher. Now I'm ready to teach what I would like to teach and do it the way I want to. I am ready to see lives changed!
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I am providing the service of being a financial coach. I am in the business of changing lives for the better. I want people to be happy again and not let their finances stand in their way. I want to teach people how important it is to use cash the way that God intended. I want them to have a heart that is fearless!
