As I write this blog post, I’m sitting on a 13 hour flight from Madrid, Spain, to Montevideo, Uruguay. I’m up over the 50 flight mark in the last year, so…you know…no stranger to travel here.

Truth time: I didn’t want to write a post about credit cards. It’s not a sexy topic. But through my consulting work, I know that quite a few of you are overly dependent on your credit cards.

Today on the blog I’m answering another reader question. This particular reader also happens to be participating in my 30 Days to Done program where we were having a conversation about leadership and putting yourself out there.

I'm a Libra which basically means I suck at making decisions, (according to people who believe in astro-signs anyway). I hate it when people ask me what kind of food I want to order in.
