I did it! I finally did it!! Today, I released my first e-book. It’s a DIY credit repair book. It contains over 30 dispute letters to help with getting negative items removed from your credit report.
Today was an emotional day for me. Not only was this the day that I chose to release my first book, but it’s also my daughter’s 2nd birthday. Today also marks my 1 year anniversary of being a homeowner. This day is so special to me because it signifies perseverance. When I found out that I was pregnant with my second child, I was in a really bad place. I already had 1 child, and there I was, pregnant with my daughter. No husband or any financial support whatsoever. Her father was already dating someone else by the time I found out. I was DEVASTATED!!! I was scared. I was ashamed. My parents didn’t raise me to be a single mom who has kids with more than one man. I thought so hard about abortion. I called to set the appointment, and as soon as I hung up, I cried and poured my heart out to God. I questioned Him…I doubted Him…I felt cheated.
After that call, I knew that there was no way that I could terminate this pregnancy, so I skipped the appointment and braced myself for a long year. Time passed, doctors appointments were done, and there I was being induced on January 5, 2017. That day changed my life at the moment I looked at my baby girl. I decided that I was going to win this race. I decided that no matter how hard I have to work, I will give my children a good life. I decided that no matter who was around to help, I will survive. That’s what January 5th means to me.
I told a bit of my story just to get to the point of the e-book. Back in August 2017, I was denied for a mortgage because my credit score was too low. I cried for 1 day, and the next morning I woke up ready for battle. I made calls, sent letters, and did everything I had to do to get my score high enough for home ownership. I succeeded in December, and by February of 2018, I was in my first home and I had a credit score in the 700s. I hope that you will take out the time to visit my Shopify site to purchase the book, and also leave feedback!
