Journey to Wealth for Ordinary People
My name is Lucille Baldwin but most of my friends call me Lucy or Lou. I am not a financial advisor or an expert when it comes to money. What I am is a divorced mother of two who was Sick and Tired of living paycheck to paycheck and decided to take charge of my financial situation. My life had taken an unexpected detour. I had become a single mother raising my daughters alone. I believed in love and fairy tales and thought that love alone was enough to create a happy life. I NEVER imagined that I would be divorced and raising my daughters alone, but hey, life happens!
At the tender age of 21 I married my high school sweetheart and moved hundreds of miles away from my family and friends. I was full of life, love and ready for new adventures as a military wife. I sometimes like to joke that I was young and dumb, but that’s not nice. What I learned on my journey is that it does not matter if you are a janitor, a server, a teacher, or even a single mom, the power to become debt free and create wealth is in your hands.
Why Did I Write a Book?
I wanted to write a book for others like myself who grew up without the benefits of basic financial information. The sad truth is that almost 80% of Americans are in debt and struggling to make ends meet or just not getting ahead financially.
The main cause of this problem is simple: a lack of financial information. Until recently I was one of the 80% overwhelmed with debt and struggling to make ends meet. Once I learned how to take control of my money my goal was to share this empowering information with others. I started with .25 cents, determination, and a plan. The most powerful tool that I had was the belief that living debt free was possible. If I can do it, you can do it! If you are ready to free yourself from debt and watch your bank account grow then I invite you to join me as I continue my journey to creating wealth.
