Ready for the understatement of the year? We need to fight racism. Money-wise, the economic state of Black America in 2020 is a crying shame. That needs to be addressed, for sure. But for now, I want to talk about some of the things you can personally do to help fight racism.Read More
Ready to get out of debt (without putting your life on hold?)Start Here
As Seen In
I'm glad you're here! My husband and I paid off over $147,000 in debt (including our house)! I've walked the walk to become completely debt free, and I want to help YOU do the same with my award-winning Pay Off Debt by Jackie Beck app (as featured in Oprah Magazine.)
Debt is NOT forever
You might hear people say that you’ll “always have debt”. I automatically bought into that notion myself, believing I had to borrow money for emergencies and to pay for big ticket items. Turns out, that common idea is just not true. It's a myth.
After paying off over $147,000 in debt, I know that you CAN break free of debt’s grip and live the life you love. You can pay for the things you want and need with money you already have, and save a bundle in the process.
You know what else? You don't have to live some kind of uber-frugal life to pay off debt, either. It's totally possible (if sometimes a little slower!) to travel, spend time with family and friends at events, buy nice clothes, drive a car you enjoy, and generally live a good life WHILE you're getting out of debt.
I know, because that's exactly what my husband and I did. (While dealing with typical life issues like layoffs and emergencies along the way.)
How is it possible? By changing your habits and actions, and only spending money you already have.
It all starts with your mindset.

I remember it like yesterday. Mom was sick. I took her to the hospital again, thinking she just needed more fluids like the last couple of times. Instead, they admitted her. Just a few days before that, she’d been working in her real estate business, going out to eat with friends, and golfing. But that […]Read More
There’s no doubt about it: it sucks when you’ve lost your job. Job loss is stressful under normal times, and even more so with everything going on right now. We’re living in some unusual times, to say the least. So what can you do when you lose your job? First, whether or not you have […]Read More
