November Recap: Debt Free and Upcoming Launch
It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a good ol’ business recap, so here’s November’s! To sum it up, my three months back home in California came to an end, and I got to come back to my cozy French life.
Newly credit card debt-free!
Best moment of November, by far: at the end of the month, when I paid my final $300 payment on my credit card debt! It’d been around for a while, and I’ve finally conquered it!
This is the result of continuing to change my mindset around money by:
constantly reading books about money/personal finance
meditating (ideally aiming for 10 minutes each morning)
journalling (each morning, even if just a few lines)
I’d come to the realization that I was finished being at the mercy of monthly debt payments. Up next: student loan debt in all of it’s $21,292 glory (I don’t think I’ve ever shared it publicly, and it feels a little vulnerable, but I’m ready to talk about it out in the open!)
Speaking of which, I think I’m going to start blogging more about personal finance, as well, since I find the topic absolutely fascinating (and I think it should be talked about, too!).
Upcoming website launch - Marie Z Johnston
I’ve been working the last couple of weeks on a web design for the lovely Marie Johnston. We met about a year ago at the start of B-School (love those B-School connections!) and since we were both in Paris, we met up for coffee. The rest is history!
I’m so excited for the launch of this beautiful site and brand! Definitely keep an eye over here for that!
Joined my first gym in France
I feel so happy to have joined a gym here in Toulouse! After three years as a resident, I figured it was high time to get over myself and join a great salle de sport, as it’s called in French.
I love it! I have to say, I went to my first Body Pump weight class in probably close to three years, and my body was FEELING IT afterward.
Still so worth it though.
Overcoming Underearning: A Five-Step Plan to a Richer Life by Barbara Stanny (amazing for that money mindset shift!)
The Icarus Effect by Seth Godin (sooo many nuggets of wisdom, all the time from Seth - highly recommend!)

Scandalous? Maybe. Worth it? Totally.
Possibly the most worthwhile decision of your life (thus far).
