June TCOB Goals 2008 - End of the Month Review

1) Reduce Student Loan debt to under $2000.

2) First month of Automatic Savings deductions ($100). Monitor to make sure this is completed.

3) Find a way to make an extra $50 this month.

4) Start formulating a list of things I think I will need for Australia. (Backpack, clothing, etc)

Well it looks like this month was a complete bust due to the loss of my job. I managed to collect the last of my pay and vacation pay from my employer. I made $50 working 4 hours for my friends mothers company. I managed to get some post opps and thats about it.

I cancelled the automatic savings for now, until I'm back on my feet. I'm shocked at how dry the job market is right now. It's the worst time to be looking and its quite annoying but I keep working on it every day.

I hope you are not feeling down about this. Don't think of May as a bust, but that you have been given the opportunity to explore other ventures. Doors need to close sometimes so that new ones can open. And this time, you will open a door that leads to even more possibilities!

Talk to you in three weeks. Keep your head up and keep looking for those hidden ways to find money. I also think you should keep working on your business idea for a women's landscaping company. When you are your own boss, you don't have to worry about getting treated like crap. :)

I'm sorry to hear that you weren't able to reach your goals. There is always July!

Dolly, June was tough for many of us... I agree with Arual when she says you should pursue the landscaping company idea... there is a big demand for that as people buy fancier houses and don't have time to do the work themselves.

Good luck with your job search!!

God damn! It's a hard time for a lot of us! The bad news: we're all shit ass poor but luckily we're all in this together. Let's all put good vibes out there for Dolly and company so that we'll land on our feet soon!
