What is CentsA.B.L.E.?
Meet "CentsAble" Bobbi
My name is Bobbi Olson. I was raised poor and believed my situation was hopeless.
“I can’t afford it” was my motto, and I immediately excused any offered solutions as overwhelming or unattainable, because I didn't believe that any of it could work for me, and I didn't understand that money is just a tool.
I gave up before I ever got started.
I believed that if only I could make more money, or work more hours, my financial life would improve, but it never did. Raises, tax refunds, bonuses – nothing seemed to make a difference!
I was late on payments, destroyed my credit and continually made bad financial decisions out of pure desperation.
I watched, in amazement, as lottery winners, movie stars and personal friends, who had vast financial resources, went broke! That’s when I realized poor was a choice.
It was hard to admit, but I finally learned that changing the way I think about money and disciplining myself to manage it, was the only way to gain control of my finances.
I didn’t want to be afraid anymore – stressing about how to keep the lights on, fix the car or pay for an emergency room visit – I was sick of it!
So after years of producing a financial radio show focused on managing million dollar portfolios, I realized that the strategies, concepts and ideas would work for any budget/my budget/your budget, and learned the basics of managing money.
It was easier than I ever thought it could be, and I’m now debt–free!
I’m excited to share what I’ve learned and hear your stories, as we all strive to lead CentsAble lives!
