Please don’t take me as being a whiny person, but why give a gift if you don’t like someone or you know that the person isn’t even going to appreciate it. For me, I want my money […] The post Triggered by the Holidays' Here’s How Not to Feel Guilty About Not Buying ...

Glue a bunch of photos onto a piece of cardboard, sit and stare at it and all our financial woes are solved, right' Wrong. If that were the case, money would literally be flying from the sky for me while I sit on a beach sipping Shirley Temples. Now I’m not saying that visualization exercises […] The post Money Vision Boards: Do They Work or Are They A Load of S#!t' ...

One of my ex-bosses tried to sleep with female employees, I probably should have quit. But I ended up sticking around at that job for four years. Sure, there was harassment and lots of illegal practices going on at that place, but it wasn’t soul sucking job. The boss ended up being fired, leaving the country (I was an expat in China at the time) and the new principal that came soon ...

  When I was a child, a close family member won a significant amount of money from playing the lottery. I’m taking about enough money for this person to quit their job and never work a day in their life. A few years later, this person was back at a minimum wage job. We never spoke of the lottery winnings again. Why am I sharing this story? It’s proof that financial freedom isn’t ...

If you haven’t already noticed, the motto of this website is “master your mindset, master your money.” All this to say that when you’re looking to better your financial life, inspiration can comes from all sorts of places. In fact, I’d argue that you don’t always have to read personal finance books to learn a few things about how you handle your money.

Reality check time: it’s completely your fault if you’re earning more money (I warned you I’d be brutally honest). I was in denial about this for years. When I was a teacher, your salary was determined by the type of degree you got and how many years of experience you had. I never negotiated my salary because it was all laid out in a chart, so all I had to do ...

  If nobody else has already told you this, I will: if your emotions are all over the place, you will never get rich. Period. Read all those articles on habits of the wealthy, take courses on creating passive income streams, whatever. If you believe deep down you don’t deserve riches, it won’t come to you. As in, you gotta feel like money is already there for the taking my friend. When you ...

I’m a gal known for living large. It never ceases to amaze me how many people look at me with wonder when I talk about buying a one-way ticket to Australia, living in Asia for nine years, moving across three different states and still manage to keep my money stuff together. I can honestly say it sounds like a glamorous life, and I’ve lived a great life so far filled with ...
