Today is my birthday. I’m 41 years old. Each year on my birthday, I take time to reflect upon the year that’s passed. Moreover, I make goals for the future. Sometimes these are related to finances and sometimes they aren’t. This year I’m asking myself, “should I review finances on my birthday?” Pros and Cons […]
When we set big goals for ourselves, we need big doses of motivation, patience and persistence. There really is no such thing as an overnight success, no matter what headline you might read. And while everyone wants to figure out how to ‘hack’ success, I don’t really think that’s possible. Big goals certainly take time. […]
Today we have a guest post from Katasha at Broke Girl Rehab. Katasha is paying off $57,847 in debt like a baller. She uses videos and photos to inspire her to keep going. Today she’s bringing some of that inspiration to you!
Happy June! I love the start of a new month. June, in particular, has always heralded the start of summer for me personally. This June I’ve got big plans, financial and otherwise, and I can’t wait to share them.
I’m a woman of many dreams. I spend a lot of my time thinking about all the things I want to do, the places I want to see, the people I want to meet. (Oprah, top of the list.) Possibility is like a drug to me. In so many ways, my life is full of […]

Last week I wrote about how I’d reached my breaking point. I’m pretty unhappy with my professional life, which is not great. And as many of you pointed out in the comments, this is not a dress rehearsal. It matters that I’m happy in my day to day. Thank you to everyone who left me […]
Happy new year! I know pretty much already everyone posted their goals/resolutions/dreams, but I was deep in vacation mode. After a year of non-stop work I jumped on my holiday break as a chance to finally, really and truly, STOP. I took a real and prolonged break and it has made all the difference. But […]
Source With the end of the year just a few short weeks away I feel like everything has moved into hyper drive! If you blink you’ll miss the end of this year. And it’s simply been too great a year to let that happen.

I generate thoughts and want to act on them immediately. ‘I should do laundry soon’ flows into me standing up immediately and getting my clothes into the washer. ‘I want to […]
