CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I paid off my Truck this past week and it’s a great feeling to get a financial loan off your chest. It reminded me of a book written by Dave Ramsey called The Total Money Makeover. I used his methods to dig my way out of debt years ago, when I had a divorce. The first thing you do is gather up a list of all your debts and then comes the decision on which one to tackle first. Most would say, pay off your highest interest loan first, but what he recommends is to concentrate on paying off the smallest loan first. When you pay off that first loan, you feel a sense of accomplishment that will carry on into paying off subsequent debts. Each accomplishment compounding and encouraging you.

This can be applied to most challenges in life. Don’t try to take it all on at once. Break it up into smaller pieces and take one step at a time. Choker mentioned the old saying Q:”How do you eat an elephant?”  A:”One bite at a time”

 

MOLESKIN:
Birds R Real did the hand off of the shovel flag for AO Blue Collar to Bootheel after PLC. I want to thank Birds for all he has done as AOQ and I want to thank Bootheel for stepping up into the AOQ role.
