Savannah Ross needed $32 to keep her electricity on to keep her son alive. He was hooked to medical equipment needed for him to survive. Savannah and her husband had decided to bring their son home to die, rather than die in the hospital. Doctors had told them that he only had days to live.
She got on her knees and prayed like only a desperate mother pleading for her son's life can pray. Her oldest son Ryan heard his mom pray and he went into the back yard and prayed as well. He told God that if he gave his mom the $32 and kept his brother alive, he would spend the rest of his life paying him back.
Today, Savannah Ross' son is still alive and she and her son Ryan are paying God back by helping people around the world change their lives for the better.
Savannah Ross retired in her 30's through real estate investing. Now she is on a mission to empower others to become free so that they can also make a HUGE impact in the world. She is multiplying her giving and charitable efforts by working with people who already give of their time and money. Those type of people will continue to be generous in giving their time and money as the money and time freedom increases.
I interviewed Savannah Ross for my Journey To Success Radio show.
The loss of my income, the medical bills and recovering from the fire was just the beginning of our financial downfall. Just as we were struggling to figure out how we would get by, the teachers union went on strike. Now instead of just worrying about our growing debt, we were wondering how we were going to eat. We felt like we were under attack, getting it from all sides. The intense stress had us heading straight for a divorce and claiming bankruptcy seemed like our only option. We prayed desperately for a way out from under this mess. We called our realtor and told him that we needed to sell our house immediately so that we could pay off some of our debt. He listed our house made some recommendations that opened my eyes to new possibilities.
That is when our lives changed forever. With the right strategies and financial education I was able to reach a level of wealth and financial freedom that I had never even dreamed about.
I now own millions of dollars worth of real estate. We were able to retire in our mid 30′s. I am a single mom caring for two beautiful children. My youngest has special needs and with this level of financial freedom I can cherish every moment with both of them.
You don’t have to become a millionaire to become financially free, but it does have its perks. When you have the means to buy anything you want, your perspective about what is most important changes. I didn’t have to focus on survival or even taking care of the house anymore. I was free to be a great mom and live a life of passion and purpose.
My financial education led to a financial freedom that has taken away a lot of stress and allowed me to help so many people around the world as well. As a family we have traveled to third world countries and built homes for families in need with our own money. My children learned the true meaning of compassion and have already learned how to make a difference in a very real way that will stay with them forever.
It is amazing what can happen when you change your mindset and educate yourself. My hope is that you will choose to get educated so that you can also make a difference in your life and the lives of others around the world.
