I’ve just hit my four month anniversary with freelancing! So far, my income has not hit that level of magic that some bloggers pull in $10,000 grand a month, $70,000 a month. Far from it! I continue, as ever, to be your low-income blogger. Coming off FinCon and wrapping up my road trip has me […]
I bet you thought I had abandoned my beloved FIRE series. Not so my friends! Today I’m delighted to bring another post to the series from The Happy Philosopher. Our philosopher is also a doctor who faced down the burn out beast and turned to FIRE as his solution. Now he works part time, is […]
While I’m driving around the U.S, I’ve asked a few personal finance friends to share their wisdom. Today we have Taylor from The Freedom of Money. Taylor is talking about a topic that’s personal to me: knowing that you have enough. Conquering money fears is hard work, and Taylor is fighting the good fight.
While I’m driving around the U.S, I’ve asked a few personal finance friends to share their wisdom. Today we have Maggie of NorthernExpenditure.com here. Maggie is dishing out great advice on how to avoid being tricked into spending more money by beating our own brains. Behavioral Economics for the frugal win! Kara was so sweet […]

I have officially been a full time freelancer for three weeks TODAY, and it’s been amazing. I haven’t been working all that hard or all that much over the last three weeks on freelancing. I wanted to take some serious down time to really mentally separate from my nonprofit job, sleep a lot, and figure […]
Life has been so busy that last week when my one year anniversary of debt freedom came, it also went pretty damn quick. I blinked and poof! It had passed me by. Still, June 5th 2015 was one of the most important days of my life. Even though I’m eleven days late, I do want to take […]
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.
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 […]
I have officially reached the breaking point. I took the wrong highway exit coming home from catering at 11:00pm a few nights ago, and I burst into tears. I was so exhausted, so upset at my life, so completely done with everything, that I just cried it out on the frontage roads. I got back to […]
