My Saga Begins

The Beginning


     The journey to financial freedom is one that everyone has to go through. I am in the middle of one myself. I have had many successes in life. These are things like my children, my fiance, Sheree, and my career stability. I have had just as many failures. Things like getting out of the U.S. Navy, my failed marriage, and, most importantly, not achieving the financial independence that I had dreamed about when I was first starting out. This blog is going to be about my decision to focus on achieving a better credit score which will in turn greatly aid my journey to financial independence.

     Let me warn you now that this is not a story about how I fixed everything in 30 days like some websites proclaim they can do. I want you to know about my journey to achieving a great credit score along with financial independence. I want you to know that I am far from the end of that journey. I want you to hear about my successes and, more importantly, my failures. I believe that if you know about my failures, you are more apt to avoid repeating them yourself. A lot of these failures are ones that a lot of people have probably made, but I'm not sure if they have been put out there for everyone to see. I want everyone to see. I want to help as many people as possible avoid making these mistakes in the future.
     
     I may be wrong sometimes. Like I said, this is not a story of how perfect I am. It is my journey on the battles with the credit bureaus and tackling debt. I will be as raw as possible in these post so I can try to portray the excitement and frustrations that I feel along the way.
