I received some great feedback from you regarding my two posts this week. Many of you were surprised to discover you were emotional shoppers and are taking steps to address your emotional triggers. While others of you are making goal-setting a priority now that you see the role they play in your quest for financial freedom.
I had the great privilege to be interviewed by two of my favorite bloggers—Sicorra from Tackling Our Debt and Laurie from The Frugal Farmer. Ongoing, I will be a regular contributor at Tackling Our Debt, so please look for my posts starting April 24. In the meantime, you can read my interview with Sicorra here. In recognition of Financial Literacy Awareness Month, Laurie interviewed me on favorite topic, which you can read here.
