This month I started a financial movement – a program called dFree™. The program was developed by Rev. Deforest B. Soaries Jr @dbsoaries. He launched dFree™ several years ago as a means to assist the members of his congregation in dealing with crushing consumer debt. Rev. Soaries was interviewed on CNN by Soledad O’Brien to discuss the need for a financial revolution.
In December our church hosted an orientation to prepare for the January kickoff of dFree™. The program has many resources, including a book; “Say Yes to No Debt” and a workbook.
So why I am bringing this to you on the Building a Better Sisterhood podcast? It’s because I am thinking about you sister. I’m thinking about how much better your relationships will be with your friends, as you eliminate financial stress. I’m thinking about you as if you were right here in my studio, sitting here with me and we’re sipping a cup of hot tea. At some point, we would start talking about that money thing. Think about it, so many times if you want to get together with your best friends, the money situation often makes the decisions about everything. We might as well talk about the money.
Here are tweetable quotes… my Pearls of Wisdom:
Let’s choose to save more than we saved last year. Let’s try to find some ways to save where it doesn’t hurt and it doesn’t feel like we are being deprived of life’s little things.– CECELIA GREENEBARR
Just because you have the money to spend doesn’t mean you have to spend it. You can be wiser in how you choose to spend your money.– CECELIA GREENEBARR
We need to have some stocks and investments that are going to make our money work for us. We need our name included at the register of deeds in our local municipality. Whether it’s a vacation home or primary residence, we need property in which we don’t pay rent. Why? Because we must think about the legacy. – CECELIA GREENEBARR
CALL TO ACTION:
Find places in your daily routine where you can keep more money in your wallet. Choose to spend your cash in places where its going to get you a great return, better dividends.
