Furthermore, it’s how to create change that will stick. And since we are a personal finance blog, I’ll add that this includes your finances.

This is my second post in my interview series titled, Inspiring Women in Recovery. If you are a woman in recovery or know a woman in recovery, please contact me! I’d love to feature your story here and it can be wholly anonymous or not.
Today’s interview comes from Nadine Steele of Steele Recovery Addiction Counseling for Women and Families. I met Nadine after I was on the Dave Ramsey show sharing my testimony. Nadine reached out to me and an instant friendship was formed. Without further ado, here’s Nadine’s story…
The IRS has announced most tax-advantaged contribution limits for 2020. I was waiting to release this post until they announced the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) contribution limits. For some reason, that one was the last to be released.
Being that I’ve started saving for retirement late, I max out all the tax-advantaged accounts I can get my hands on now.

Each year as the IRS raises the allowable contribution limits, I raise my pre-tax contributions.
This post is to inform you of all tax-advantaged contribution limits for 2020. If I’ve missed any, please feel free to let me know. Additionally, if you are not able to max out any of these accounts, don’t let that intimidate you. Just begin!
I’ve been very excited to begin this interview series, inspiring women in recovery. However, first I had to line up some interviews.

Shari’s Story of Redemption
My name is Shari and I am 55 and remarried. I live in Northeast Ohio with my husband of 11 years. I have a 23-year-old son, who by the grace of God, is nothing like I was in my youth. As a child, my mother often expressed her wishes that I would someday have twins, just like me. Thank you, God, this has not happened!
On November 19th I will celebrate 20 years of continuous uninterrupted sobriety.
