For When You Are Overwhelmed

 

It happens to all of us. We get overwhelmed. We get stuck. We don’t know what our next step is.

This is the place to work through this stuff.

How is the least important part of the equation.

How is the least important part of the equation.

I think one of the things that gets most of us all hung up on forward progress is not knowing exactly HOW to accomplish what you have been dreaming about. Or maybe it's just me? I have been dreaming about this thing I'm doing right now for years, but I've been...

Don’t Let Anything Hold You Back

Don’t Let Anything Hold You Back

When God’s Time Isn’t Your Time

If you are one of those fortunate people who was seemingly born knowing what you wanted to do when you grow up - I'm super happy for you. But for the rest of us, life ends up being a series of starts and stops, with constant changes in direction. You either choose a...

Bold Women Modern Edition: Christa McAuliffe

Bold Women Modern Edition: Christa McAuliffe

When I was in 3rd grade, I wanted nothing more than to be an Astronaut. This passion carried into my 4th grade year, so you know it wasn't just a passing fancy. I read everything there was to read about the planets, constellations, the space program and was generally...

Bold Women Modern Edition: Marie Curie

Bold Women Modern Edition: Marie Curie

Did you know that prior to 1869, the periodic table didn't exist? Me either. I'm just enough of a science geek that I find how it was developed to be extremely interesting. Sixty years before the table was developed, scientists were aware of about 47 elements. By...

If you haven’t read my book Mom vs Debt, you should grab a copy. But in the meantime, here are a few blogs that can get you started with all money stuff. 

All Press Is Good Press

So, there's this guy on twitter mocking one of my posts. And that's cool, because while he totally misunderstood my point - as did a whole lot of other people - it's getting my project some notice. Even if it's just amongst people who are trying to mock it. The more...

It’s the Holidays…But You Are in Debt

It's the holidays... but you are in debt. But...it's the holidays... And you are still in debt. This is a hard time of year. Especially because if you are like me, you've got kids. You've got people who are depending on you for stuff. And not just stuff - but holiday...

Spend Less on Candles

Addendum: YES, I realize the tweet is a joke. But, it is an illustration of the point I was trying to make. Obviously, it's ridiculous to think anyone is spending that much on candles - but people really do spend a crap ton of money on crap they don't need and then...

I Love My Kids – But I Don’t Even Know Who I Am Anymore.

My oldest son is four months away from being seventeen. He reminded me of that this morning. This is madness to me. How did the last seventeen years pass by so quickly? I vividly remember the day he was born. I was induced at 7am, but by 7pm, my baby was still in my...
