Managing your money, dealing with your debt, acting responsibly, preparing for your future, living below your means…these are 100%, absolutely vital!
But hereâ€™s the truth: It’s not about the money!
None of this is about the number of dollars in your account, the amount of debt you have or how tight your budget is.
The journey to financial freedom is all about asking one question:
â€śWho do I want to be.â€ť
Who do you want to be for your spouse? Who do you want to be for your children? Who do you want to be for your present self and your future self? Who do you want to be in Gods eyes?
Itâ€™s trueâ€¦taking control of your money will require more time and effort up-front than mindlessly spending yourself into a black hole of debt. But this journey is all about putting in the work now so you can sit back and reap the benefits later.
The more you simplify your financial life, the easier it is to master it!
But simplicity isnâ€™t just about choosing the option thatâ€™s easiest or takes the least amount of time. Simplicity is all about exploring your options, choosing what works best in your situation and cutting out everything else.
A budget, contrary to popular belief, has absolutely nothing to do with restriction.
A budget has everything to do with exercising your freedom and power to choose.
You have the ability to choose how to spend your money, where to spend your money and when to spend your money.
A budget isnâ€™t your masterâ€¦youâ€™re not a slave!
You are the master of your money!
Choosing to live on a budget is choosing to take control! Take Control!

As always on the Davis Coaching blog, our entire goal is to equip and inspire you to take control of your money, become debt free and achieve full-blown financial freedom.
Today, youâ€™re in for something special.
Weâ€™re happy to interview May Rashid. A few months ago, we connected with May on Twitter and eventually in person. She’s demolishing her debt, taking control of her life and choosing the direction of her futureâ€¦and sheâ€™s almost as fired up about financial freedom as we are!
In this interview youâ€™ll find out how sheâ€™s burning through her debt and staying motivated, and how you can follow in her footsteps. There are no tricks, no shortcuts. You just have to do what works!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your current financial situation?
Freedom: free â€˘ domâ€‚ â€‚/
1. the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under restraint
2. exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.
3. the power to determine action without restraint.
4. personal liberty, as opposed to bondage or slavery
To us, financial freedom is much more than being debt free and having more money.
Financial freedom means
