Do you want to DIY a money makeover? Here’s my tweak challenge for you. Think about what your financial life might look like just 6 months from now!
I remember the time I stumbled upon my first personal finance blog ever.
I can’t remember the subject of the article, and I can’t even remember how I found it. BUT, I do remember complete delight in the robust comments section. I scrolled for hours, deliciously reading while people revealed one of the most personal things in life: their money digits.
Who owed them money and never paid them back, where they spent their paychecks, how much they were saving and on what salary, etc.
It was addictive.
In the months following I bounced around to any personal finance blogs I could find, soaking in money makeover, taking in tons of information that had been out of reach in most of the conversations I’d had during my life.
I mean, people don’t normally splat out their digits, right? Especially not before blogging came around, anyway.
Psst: J. Money over at Rockstar Finance has compiled the ultimate blogger net worth list in case you’re crazy interested in being a digital fly on the wall. Nope, you won’t find mine on there. I’m still not ready to give that info up!
In other words, I became a Personal Finance (PF) article junkie.
PF Article Junkies: I’m Issuing You the One-Tweak Challenge
I love discovering new blogs of people talking about their finances, and peruse the hundreds of comments of people who share their own experiences with money.
It’s fascinating. It’s eye-opening.
And yes…it’s a little indulgent.
But the other day, I thought to myself: what would happen to my finances if I made one tweak from every PF article I take the time to read?
Over the course of a year, even if I only read 20 articles, that would mean making 20 tweaks to my finances.
Do you know where I might be just one year from now if I did that? A total money makeover, DIY style.
Here’s the thing − I started doing just that all those years ago when I stumbled across that blog. And it changed not only my finances, but my life.
So now I’m asking you: could you commit to making one tweak to your finances for every PF article that you read? What might your DIY money makeover look like if you did?
