You are welcome here! Welcome to my home, my road my journey.
This is a work in progress, like me, journey of entrepreneurship, making money, saving money, reducing poverty, helping myself and helping others.
I started this blog because I myself was “fed up of being poor” but also I heard this phrase so many times I felt I had to do something myself to change my life and then I could inspire and help others. My dream is to be financially free.
I appreciate that when people think of the word “poor” they may think of third world poverty, the sort of poverty that’s on the news but what about the poverty that’s in front of us, on our doorsteps in our own neighborhoods ,people going without food or heat or hiding from bailiffs, or homeless, roofless, going to food banks. This could be you, or your best friend of family, or your nurses, you may not even know their financial situation and that they are struggling.
As prices rise, low income families find it increasingly hard to pay for the same basic essentials. Sam Royston Chair of End Child Poverty and Director of Policy and Research at the Children’s Society., said ‘No family in modern Britain should be struggling to put food on the table, heat their homes and clothe their children.
I stand with poverty charities such as “End Child Poverty” that work hard to campaign and make a difference.
Finances are often a private matter, and while you may get some who flaunt their wealth, the harsh reality is that finances often cause arguments and relationship break downs.
One in seven (14%) GB adults in debt has hidden debt from a partner, and half of these (7%) are currently doing so, according to a new report published today by leading relationship support charity, Relate. Feeling ashamed about debt is the number one reason why people hide it from their partner, with over half (51%) giving this reason. This was followed by being scared of their partner’s reaction (46%) and feeling they had different approaches to money (34%).
“Anyone can fall into poverty.”
Anyone can feel poor, anyone can feel fed up.
Just when you think finances in relationships can be a sticking point and danger ground.. let us add more fuel.
With mental illness and mental health issues on the rise.
‘Debt and mental illness are a marriage made in hell” says Martin Lewis…
However the same article offers support and a “How to cope strategy”
It is hard struggling to live on the min wage or benefits. I have struggled to make ends meet as I tried to keep my head above water. I am not entitled to any benefits but I was on them several times at different occasions in my life.
I ended up in debt and no matter how I tried I struggled to wipe this debt.
With the cost of living going up, debts growing I began to struggle. I got fed up.
Late January 2018 I said to myself, “I was fed up of being poor“,so I decided to take action. My blog shares with you my journey, but also full of hints and tips to help others.
If you have found yourself here, and can relate to my journey, it would be good to connect with you.
