Today we're featuring Jess, a nurse from Fargo, North Dakota. She used the journal to get her finances organized and save up for her wedding! See what she has to say about using the journal below:
How long have you used the Start Today Journal?
Rachel was giving a keynote speech in Fargo, ND on my birthday, and my chief nursing officer gave me a ticket to attend. I was front row, baby! There is something powerful about being front row when Rachel is speaking truth and 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!
How has the Start Today Journal changed your life?
What a beautiful thing to sit down in the morning and think about what you are grateful for each day. The Start Today Journal sets your heart and mind in the right frame, and THEN it reminds you each and every day what you are striving for.
Have you crossed any goals off in your Start Today Journal?
I crossed off that I have 20K in savings! My husband and I just got married this year. Weddings are expensive, and I didn’t want us to be in a financial hole from one day out of the year.
I made a goal of 20K in savings thinking it would be a few years out. The Start Today Journal reminded me every day to save.
We paid off a car, two student loans, and were still were able to bulk up our savings.
What's something surprising you've found since using the Start Today Journal?
At first, I wasn't doing the Start Today Journal the way it was designed to be used. I was just writing things that I could see myself wanting because dreaming doesn’t come easily to me. Once I learned that you write the same big whammy goals over and over it again, that’s when the wheels started turning.
Who would you recommend the journal to?
I recommend the journal to anyone who would like encouragement and positivity on a daily basis. I also highly recommend the Start Today Priority Planner to help you stay organized and insanely intentional about your time in executing those dreams.
Those who seem to have it all together on the surface are craving fulfillment and balance deep-down. We all have 15 minutes in our day, and those 15 minutes can change your life.
