What comes next
This article was really helpful to me:
What comes next? What comes after I get the debt out of the way and don't have to feel like I'm hemorrhaging money to the credit card companies any more? How will I live? What will life look like? What will I do? And how will I spend the money that I now have available to me?
If you never think about it, you won't know what to do when you get there...
You've been freed
Do you know how hard it is to lead?
You're on your own
Do you have a clue what happens now?
It's much harder when it's all your call
Cross the sea
When your people say they hate you
Don't come crawling back to me!

Preparing for that day is an important part of reaching that day that can easily be overlooked. Planning for the "After Debt" moment, helps prevent creating new debt when you reach that "What do I do now?". When that income is freed up, it's easy to think "Well now I can afford this" and a plan can help you steer clear if that's not where you want to go.
