Recently I got a call from a woman named Chaunie at Babble (a massive website owned by Disney), asking if I’d do an interview for an article she was writing. I like Babble because, since it’s a Disney site, it stays PG-rated and I trust that they won’t twist my words to make it some edgy, off-color article. As entertaining as that would be for everyone.
I did the interview then went about my Holiday business, not giving it a second thought. Then, wouldn’t you know, you Freebs told me on Facebook that Studio 5 mentioned on-air that there was an article on Babble about moi. Hey thanks, Studio 5! At first, my heart jumped (never a good sign when there is an unexpected article about you floating around the internet…). I sprinted to my computer to check it out, and breathed a sigh of relief, with an “oooooooh yeah, I totally did an interview for this” recollection.
Chaunie did a great job with the article. It’s not easy to keep facts straight when someone like me talks a mile a minute, and she got everything pretty dang close! So I thought I’d share it here so you could check it out for yourself! It talks about our FD (Financial Disaster), how we came out of a mountain of credit card debt, and many of my philosophies about budgeting and saving money…even though I’m innately bad at it, and fairly disinterested in it. It talks about where we are now, and how we managed to snag our 8,600 sq foot dream home…
…and don’t even feel guilty about it.
Basically, it’s a perfect start to our Focus on Finances month as part of my FREE Focused in ’17: Best Year EVER program. Let’s see how many shameless plugs I can squeeze into one post, shall we?
Truth be told: I was a little flustered by the fact that the article was all about us, not going to lie. I get interviewed for articles all the time, but usually it’s me giving my advice, along with a few other experts. I guess I hadn’t concentrated on the purpose of the article, and it still feels a little weird. So just picture me blushing and being fairly awkward while you read it, mmkay?
Though I truly adore blabbing. (Boy, blogging my way feels good again!)
