No Credit Cards for 7 Continents

Antarctica, explore, faith, family, travel, Uncategorized, worldview

๐ŸƒWhile living and working abroad, both companies in #China and #SaudiArabia provided lodging for me free of charge. I simply had to steward what I received.๐ŸŒฟ


๐ŸŒฟFive years ago, while teaching in China, I paid off the commercial debt that I had which was less than $1,000. My trip to #Antarctica cost $5,000+. I used savings to pay for it. Responsible stewardship is critical.๐Ÿƒ

๐ŸƒAfter my first year of teaching English in China, I returned home for a vacation and sold my luxury car (Volkswagen Eos, hardtop convertible) in order to achieve my seven by 30 goal. I simply broke even with that sell.๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒฟMy current debt comes from my school loans from @oralrobertsu. I am believing that through appropriate stewardship, that will be demolished soon too. It takes #discipline and #sacrifice, but it can be done. ๐Ÿƒ

๐ŸƒThe goal is to live debt free; this is not to say that I will never use a credit card or acquire any type of debt, but I do desire to experience the rewards of applying the Word to my life and using wisdom. ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒฟ#Rom13v8:

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to #love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. ๐Ÿƒ

๐ŸƒMore bits and pieces for a buck in my eBook, “7 Steps to the 7th Continent: How I Planned for Antarctica and What Really Went Down” on sevenby30.com/books.

๐ŸŒฟThe first step is #StackYourChips. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ถ๐Ÿ’ท๐Ÿ’ด๐Ÿ’ฐ
Ciao for now!

P. S. Carry only what you need. This goes for finances, physical weight, and luggage. Even airlines, bus companies, and trains charge you more for going over your limit in weight. There is always a penalty for excess. #Shalom ๐ŸŒฟ

  1. Your stories remind me of the Tim Ferris book the 4 hour Work Week. If you haven’t read it… It really blew my mind and I think it’ll do the same.
