Chasing The Debt Away

Set your goals high and strive to reach them!

So the other half of this Running From Debt blog is the debt part of the title. I have been writing more about my new passion for running and fitness, but have not wrote any new posts regarding my debt. I am still trying to figure out what angle I want to take on writing about my debt reduction. By no means am I a professional finance guy. I pass gas for a living (CRNA= Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist)!

So I am not trying to dish out financial advice in which I am not licensed to give. I am simply bringing financial experience to anyone who wants to listen, err, read. And share some wisdom along the way. They say experience is the best teacher so I am hoping to learn a lot from the School of Hard Knocks and share with you what I have learned. Hopefully, the experience I provide will help at least one person towards their financial goals. Then this little project of mine will be all worth it! I hope to share my stories with all of you regarding my path to financial independence and maybe a little wealth building. I hope to one day retire with my wife and leave some wealth to my children and grandchildren. Oh yeah, and travel the world!

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog! I appreciate your time and know how valuable it is! If you have time, please leave a comment and share your experiences with debt reduction and management!

    So excited to read more, especially since you were a RN at some point. CRNA’s make cash, cha-ching!!! Good for you!!! I would be interested to see how you are cutting down your debt, what struggles you have, the financial philosophies you follow (ie Mr. Ramsey) and maybe even some anonymous posts about your CRNA deal 😉

      Thanks for stopping by my blog Nurse Frugal! We are slowly working on our SL debt. All of our CC debt is out the door and we’re not using anymore credit cards. I will definitely be writing about our struggles with debt management, how we’re cutting down the debt, and post some random CRNA stories (without breaking HIPAA violations of course!). Good luck with your journey also! I will be following you to see your progress!

    Hi Ron! Merry Christmas! :) I’m very pleased to know your straightforward approach. I’m not referring to anyone, but still – many individuals are out there who know nothing about personal finance but go on misleading people with their ridiculous advises. They assume the curtains of personal financial advisers and go on misleading people! I think you would agree to me on this! Anyway, exactly what Nurse Frugal said – the financial philosophies of Mr. Ramsey are the best ones to follow. What do you say? In fact, it is the snowball method of debt relief that I trust the most and advise people. I’ve already subscribed to your rss feed and eager to see the posts you make live. :) take care!

      Hi Marc, Thanks for stopping by and dropping some financial wisdom! I would agree with you that the web can allow you to hide behind your computer and dish out advice that you may not be qualified to give. But also, as a reader you have to take each advice with caution…Even on my site!

      I do believe that Mr. Ramsey’s Snowball approach to debt reduction is very helpful. Applying the 80/20 rule, debt management is 80% psychological and 20% planning: you spend 20% planning how to reduce your debt and 80% psyching yourself out that you can do it!! Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
