In February of this year, I took a big risk: I enrolled in Ruth Soukup’s Elite Blog Academy. While thousands of other bloggers had already gone through the course and loved it, I felt really torn when I first signed up. After all, it was a lot of money, and the only way I was able to take it was because earlier that same week, we’d gotten back a very unexpected tax return.
Even after we had a plan for paying for the class and staying out of debt, I still wondered whether or not this had been a good investment. As a Christian, I’ve been privileged to steward some of God’s resources, and I don’t want to be wasteful with what is His.
But I talked with Jon about it, shared with him my desire to continue my blogging journey, and explained why I wanted to take this course more than any other (it was specifically geared for bloggers, not business in general; it was less expensive than other courses I’d heard about; and I knew that Ruth really knew her stuff when it comes to blogging). He supported me in my dreams and surprised me by agreeing that I should enroll, especially given that we had a plan for paying for the class.
