What’s Your Biggest Financial Win?

“Celebrate every small achievement and gain strength for grandeur things.” – Lailah Gifty Akita

In a previous post, I asked you to share your #1 financial goal. Putting our goals in writing is a major step towards achieving them. And in sharing them, we are held accountable to more than just ourselves.

I enjoyed hearing from you and learning about what you hope and plan to achieve. If you haven’t shared your goal and would like to, please head over to What’s Your #1 Financial Goal? and share your goal in the comments.

Today, I want to know what your biggest financial win has been…so far.

Have you dumped debt or saved a certain amount of money? Have you met a milestone towards achieving your big goal?

I’m giving you permission to brag a little. You’ve worked hard at your goals; it’s important to celebrate and share them! In doing so, we acknowledge what we’ve accomplished, and we give ourselves and others a little fuel to go on to achieve more wins.

Maybe you’ve had a small financial win that in perspective is a big win, like sticking to your budget or saving money on a purchase. I want to hear those too! Small victories need to be celebrated because they lead to big ones.

So…What’s your biggest financial win?

Meet me in the comments! I’ll share first!

    The win I am most proud of is dumping $74,000 of debt in two years and becoming debt-free. That has changed my life completely!

    Okay, let’s hear your win!

    Biggest financial win so far was paying off 87k of student loans in 2.5 years, and as a result, being able to quit that job and take a new one with better working conditions! Just like you said, being debt free was life changing.

      WOW! That is awesome! Congratulations, and thanks so much for sharing!

    Might be tough to top what has been said already but my biggest financial win so far would be self-funding my way through university. My parents had given me the heads up so I had plenty of time to prepare. Plus I live in Quebec which has probably the cheapest tuition rates in North America (3.5K per semester). However, it felt good to save up and pay for 3 and a half years of university without paying a single loan. 2 years after graduation and I still have managed to remain debt free!

      Mark, that is a huge win (and a rare one as you know)! You should be very proud of putting yourself through school without debt. Thanks for sharing your goal!
