I recently came across J. Money’s site(http://www.budgetsaresexy.com/) and found quite a bit of useful information. Actually, I found a lot of useful info. He’s been going at it for a while now and obviously knows what he is talking about. The one thing I found that stood out on his site from other people’s blogs/sites is that he made a sort of club for [aspiring] millionaires. I love the idea and it helps add a layer of accountability for those who want to become financially independent. So I am making my pledge today!
Rodrigo’s Million Dollar Pledge
I pledge to:
- avoid/pay off/keep the smallest debt possible
- put in as much money into tax-efficient accounts(until I finally max them out)
- make smart decisions when spending my money
I’m sure this pledge will be added to or changed in the future, but this is where I am at this moment. Life is ever changing, after all. Let’s ever change towards our goals.

J. Money is definitely on the ball. I have also read his site. That is a worthy goal and openly pledging does add psychological accountability which is an important step in staying with our goals. Especially when it requires a long and disciplined commitment. Whenever I encountered setbacks during our FI journey I would just strive to continue always moving forward and learn from the negative events that WILL happen in life.
This exactly. I feel like people underestimate the psychological aspect of this. A lot of times they run out of steam, or feel that whatever setbacks they’re encountering are too overwhelming to continue-especially in the beginning. It’s nice to have something to hold yourself accountable and to always try to move forward, no matter what life throws at you.
Great goal to pursue! Together we can get there!
