How not winning is a win

A few weeks ago, I talked about a six-week class that I had decided to take with KC Baker, who helps “Unleash the brilliance of women’s voices.”  The course started two weeks ago and so far it has been A-MA-ZING.  I have met some incredible women and the community that we are creating is really …

Completion…and a new beginning

So many of you have been cheering me on and supporting me through this process and I can’t possibly thank you enough. It is thanks in part to your support and love …

Relearning what I know

Long-time readers may remember some of my stories about drowning in debt, using money to destroy relationships, and feeling helpless when it came to the subject of money.  In the past, I spent thousands upon thousands upon thousands of dollars trying to figure out how to fix the things that were wrong with me.  I …

This vacation in Maine was one of the best I’ve ever had. There are a bunch of reasons for that, but one of the biggest is… MONEY!

I’ve been on various kinds of vacations in the past:

  • the ones where someone else was paying and I was stressed out about how much money they …

Snap Judgment – It’s a miracle!

I was just in the car listening to a show that I’ve never heard before called “Snap Judgment”.  The story they were telling blew me away and I knew I HAD to share it here.  This is a story of miracles from beginning to end – and so beautifully told.  It’s about 12 minutes long …

Drinking the Kool-Aid

A while back, I had that moment when I realized I was a part of the newspaper newsroom.  It was when my brain suddenly started thinking in terms of “inches” rather than “word count” (inches are how we measure the length of a story).

I’ve heard people talk about this with foreign languages – suddenly …

Paid in advance

Today I got an email from one of my freelance writing jobs asking me to send an invoice for $900 worth of work that I haven’t even been assigned yet.  Ummm….OKAY!!!!  🙂

In a month when things are just a tad thin income-wise, I’d call that a BIG FAT MIRACLE!  🙂

A monetary distinction

As I continue my journey toward financial freedom, I’ve learned a lot. This week’s lesson has been the distinction between “I don’t have enough money” and “It’s not in my budget.”

A few days ago I had a conversation about getting a new piece of clothing. I said, “It’s not in my budget.” She said, …
