I’ve been so fortunate that Francisco is an amazing parent! Elizabeth has been at home with Francisco 90% of the time and we found a great babysitter through a friend. Francisco has been knocking it out-of-the-Park with his YouTube channel/ website ConMuchoSabor.com.
I looked at our debt 7 months ago and was so stressed that we were over $250k in debt not including our home. I traded my truck for less than half the cost new SUV. I went to work on locums and raised my rate while telling the place I needed any hours or call I could get. I’ve been away from the family returning about every 4 weeks for a few days to a week. We’ve still had time to visit family and a good “working” vacation. I’m happy to report that our net worth is positive and debt is below 100K. I’m going to a 2 week on 2 week off lifestyle with intermittent days on my weeks off that will allow us to keep decreasing our debt and allow me more time at home! Our rental properties have picked up and are now paying for one new property per year and paying thier own expenses.
I have approximately 3 more weeks away before getting started on my new locum contract! I’m 12 weeks into my MBA carrying a 3.8 gpa and learning weekly. I get to pour over financial reports and am doing better each week with my own reports as well!
I continue to consider business opportunities and think that with time 1,2 or 3 could become something just like the rentals, YouTube or the websites.
I just wanted to check in and thank you all for the positivity and thank our Locum professionals for keeping us in great standing so we can work, travel, & provide for our families! We are so blessed!
