I came across a new blog this week (Bucking The Trend), and one of the articles on it really hit home. It was about living a more meaningful and deliberate life, where the blogger listed out about 15 or so DO’s and DON’Ts to live by. Keeping his family and kids in the forefront of his thinking. Here were some of my favorite lines from […]

Y’all know by now my answer to most financial debates is that the emotions beat out the math, but there’s one thing that always trumps that which I haven’t been the greatest about voicing. Partly because I thought it was obvious, but also because I forget just how nasty the debt industry can be! This Q&A I just had with a reader covers it pretty […]

I can’t remember if I’ve shared this before, but one of my favorite new’ish money blogs on the scene is a site called FourPillarFreedom.com. This guy’s always getting me to stop and think with his short and concise posts, and the infusion of data visualizations he sneaks in with every other article just sucks me in even further. Here’s one of my favorites to give […]

“If you can afford the product, you can afford the stock”

you can afford the stock

Just saw this quote from Mabel @ GirlsOnTheMoney.com and cannot get enough of it!! (Captured by @AllSheSaves from this past Lola Retreat) How true is this??? If you can afford the product, you can afford the stock! You literally have the cash in your hands! But how many of us spend gobs of money buying up clothes or coffees, iPhones, laptops, and basically a million dollars […]

Time for ye ol’ net worth updating again!
