I ordered the books and cd's yesterday and have been reading the material on this site ever since.
Let me talk about me for a bit because it's cathartic to share my story. I'm not looking for sympathy, I'm looking for strategy.
I have been in construction for 23 years and this year has been the worst I have ever seen. I have been without substantial work for 4 months (winter), My wife left me and the kids (3 of them) in January. I am 3 months behind on the mortgage and the bills are starting to pile up. The foreclosure is not imminent at the moment but the drumbeats are getting closer every day.
I have a Fannie Mae so I may have some wiggle room once I start working again.
I should be in blind panic but for some reason, I'm really not. I feel like things will work out and I hope that being here will be a part of that process.
I'm also a bit of a forum junkie so I doubt I'll be a 3 post wonder...I'm looking forward to the future.
