Show Me The MoneyBy
You know, the past year has been crazy for us…especially financially.
It all worked out OK in our heads. Tony will quit his job, we’ll still have one more paycheck on its way. We’ll turn the restaurant around in 2 weeks (which we did!), open up and get right back into making money. We tapped ourselves out in order to get the money to purchase the restaurant. A second mortgage, emptying out the 401K, plus another small loan got us our money to purchase Downey’s House.
There were a few things that we didn’t really factor in. Like new signs. And deposits for the utility companies. And, oh yeah. The first food order. Most of these things ended up on our personal credit cards. Some of that stuff is still on there. Plus, we really had to live off credit cards for about a month. But hey, you’ve got to take a risk to get where you want to go sometimes.
Well, I’ve decided that I need to get that credit card stuff in order. I have amounts on four different cards, just sort of floating around. So, I went to this site I heard about, and you can get instant approval credit cards right online. It’s nice to see all of the different deals, right there on one site. Me, I’m a fan of zero percent interest. I don’t need a lot of bells and whistles like cash back or airline miles. I’m gonna get all of this in order – and paid off (hopefully) quickly. The restaurant has been doing well, and Tony is happier than a fat kid in the Twinkie factory.
So, now that it’s been almost 1 year, I’m feeling settled. Not so crazy and scattered. And I’m takin’ care of business.
