My word for 2015 is LEAD.
I stumbled into leadership like a servant entering a room full of hungry dinner guests (can you tell I watch “Downton Abbey”?).
My instinct in this moment is to dissolve into the group of other servants and wait for instruction, or to seek out the leader who will begin serving food.
I couldn’t possibly lead, though, I tell myself.
Then I look down and in my hands is a tray laden with hot food. I may not be the best server, nor do I know everything about preparing meals (finances), but these people are hungry now, and I do have something to offer.
That is what this blog is for – to feed folks who are hungry for financial support, for community, for getting out of debt, for answers to problems.
I’ve been there.
I love to write and I love to help people. This is the marriage between those two.
Other areas in which I lead are coordinating Financial Peace University classes and being a financial coach as a ministry. I am also a mother of two. If you have a child, then you lead by example, every moment of every day.
[Tweet “If you have a child, then you lead by example, every moment of every day.”]
My wish is to share what I am learning to give you ideas, options and encouragement on your financial journey.
At one point, I always ask myself, “Should I wait for another to step up, as usual?”
No. In 2015, I will lead.
