Are you worried about money?

If you knew everything was going to be okay, what would you do differently with your money? Now, please don’t take this as everything-is-going-to-be-okay-so-I-bear-no-personal-responsibility-for-anything.  I am NOT talking about a universal, get-out-of-jail-free card…I am talking about wisdom. Wisdom is what you acquire when you’ve been around long enough to screw up multiple times, and you’re…

When it comes to money, who do you trust?

Do you trust yourself to know what is the right thing to do with your money? Yes, this is why some people choose to consult a financial planner…but what if the financial planner’s advice doesn’t feel right to you?  Do you trust yourself enough to NOT follow their advice? Can you separate another person’s agenda…

Time to adjust or adapt?

Does your spending reflect your values?

When talking about time management, Randi Zuckerberg famously said, “Maintaining friendships. Building a great company. Spending time with family. Staying fit. Getting sleep.

Just STAY POOR

I know the title of this post seems really harsh, and for some people, maybe it needs to be. The point is if you keep making excuses why you aren’t reaching your money goals, you will never reach them (and BTW, I am not talking to people who systematically live paycheck to paycheck or are…
