The following is a story from Jesse. I asked her to share her story as a guest post. It is so exciting, inspiring and makes me smile. Thanks so much Jesse!
When I was a teenager, I had big dreams. I wanted to do something important that mattered…and something that led to a lot of prosperity and fame. I don’t think that’s all that uncommon. It is the “American Dream”, or so we’re told. To work ourselves to the bone, take out enormous amounts of debt that will have us enslaved until we meet our maker so that we have the “Rags to Riches” story we always dreamed of.
It wasn’t until a few years ago that I started to challenge that logic. What started out as a war against credit and debt has led me and my family into a peaceful surrender of the acquisition of “stuff”.
