What’s Your Money Mantra?

When I see the words "money mantra," I am instantly a little skeptical. People often confuse money mantras with affirmations - statements like "money comes easily and abundantly to me." There is nothing wrong with affirmations, but they are not the same as money mantras.  Affirmations are what you intentionally tell yourself for 5 minutes in the morning as you [...]

Book Review: The One Thing

This summer, I read The One Thing by Gary Keller (no relation), and my initial reaction was irritation. Essentially, the book advises us to focus on one big goal that you want to accomplish and then break that goal down into smaller time chunks.The goal is to do something small to work toward that goal every day.

Check In With Your Goals – Time for a Review

Time to review your goals.  Only four months left in 2018, can you believe it? It's certainly flown by for me, which is why this week I want us to take some time to reflect on our goals.

How A Reliable Car Can Save You Money in the Long Run

Earlier this year, we said goodbye to a dear old friend - our Ferrari red '92 Volvo station wagon.

The Power of a Seed

I am about to take off on a bucket list trip: I will be riding a motorcycle 1,400 miles to Sturgis, South Dakota.

What’s Your Money Why?

Your money "why" is like your business's compass, because it's hard to get where you're going if you don't know exactly where you're going or why you're going there! Everyone talks about finding your "why" - your motivation or purpose - in business. Doing so is absolutely important, but today I want to talk about your money "why" because I [...]

What is the Feminine Economy?

As someone who's been involved with finance throughout my career, I love hearing about and researching new financial ideas. When I came across Proposals for the Feminine Economy, a talk given by Jennifer Armbrust, it piqued my interest.
