You may read in previous blogs about my journey to becoming #debtfree. It is an ongoing process that has been slowed due to the Covid 19 crisis. During this time, I have had to pivot (this has now become my word for 2020) and think of other ways to bring in some income...

With Valentines' just around the corner, I wanted to take a moment and ask you what your love language is. Maybe you have no idea what I am talking about. Each of us has a primary love language, a way that makes us feel loved. You and your significant other might not h...
