Have you ever known the strangling feeling of debt?
My husband CJ and I have definitely known that feeling. In our marriage of 16 years, we have paid off over a $150,000 of consumer debt, that’s not including your mortgage. Therefore, we know what it feels like to feel that grip of debt.
I remember when we decided to stop using credit cards. I actually froze them in bags in the freezer so I couldn’t get to them to buy anything. We used the principal of the debt snowball that Dave Ramsey talks about where you pay off the smallest one and then you put the payment that you were paying for that loan to the next one. You pay that one off, then you roll all of the payments into the next one and so forth. That’s basically the process we used to pay off our debt.
It’s called momentum.
Momentum feels great. It’s one of the reasons I recommend authors start with a small kindle eBook when they are new to publishing because you can get it finished quickly, it’s easier to format, it’s cheaper to do, it takes less time, and it builds momentum.
You get to learn the process, you learn how it works and then you can rinse and repeat.
This week I’ve been working on additional content for Author Audience Academy and once I got into the flow, I finished two full weeks of content and over 20 modules of training in just 3 days.
That’s the power of momentum.
