What is a skill you don’t have and wish that you did?

The ability to stay calm, not say anything, think twice before saying anything and be less impulsive.

What’s that called?

I have a pretty big mouth. I’m pretty opinionated (duh, if you haven’t noticed), I’m pretty passionate about things.

This can come off positively as:

Badass

A Leader

Like a Boss

Or negatively as….

Hysterical

Shrill

…so if I could just learn to keep my mouth shut, things would be great.

I am working on that. I really am. Career-wise, life-wise, I need to keep a lid on things and think twice.

I am unable to think quickly enough to stop myself from saying: SHUT UP SHERRY, but I’m trying to work that into my knee-jerk reactions to people around me.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I’ve always wanted to be able to more quick-witted and articulate. Usually by time I come up with a reply, the moment has passed.

      My issue is I am too impulsive in my responses 😉
