Last week, members in the Get Ahead Club had the opportunity to listen to my interview with Natalie McNeal. Natalie is the Author of The Frugalista Files: How One Woman Got Out of Debt Without Giving Up the Fabulous Life. She’s a seasoned journalist, teaches people how to live the frugal and fabulous life through her blog. Her blog has been noted by the New York Times, Financial Times, L.A. Times, Washington Post , Essence.com, Philadelphia Inquirer, Miami Herald and Tallahassee Democrat. She’s served as a guest on CNN, NPR’s Talk of the Nation, CBS-4 and Miami Herald web television.
One of the things we talked about is the impact of debt to your career. You might not realize it but there is a HUGE impact to your career if your life is controlled by your debt. Natalie said that getting out of debt empowers you and when you get your debt out of control, you feel like you can do anything! Once she decided to get out of debt, she went from a newspaper job that she felt stuck at to now being a Digital Strategist with appearances on CNN and Anderson Live. She just did one thing to get unstuck – she started working on things that she enjoyed and pitched an idea to her boss about starting a blog. And the rest is history!
