Write Your Own Story

The pages are blank. The ink is fresh.

Despite all of the things we try, some of us cannot get a hold of our financial lives. It could be how we were brought up, a mistake we made in the past, or just a situation we are in that seems hopeless.

Whether you are someone who thinks they will never be out from under their mountain of debt or someone who has most of it all together except for that pesky grocery budget, there is a way to win!

Regardless of your situation, the best budget is the budget that works for you. The best way to manage your finances is to manage them in a way that helps you meet, and exceed, your goals.

It's time to write your own story.

Extreme Generosity



gerund or present participle: giving
1. freely transfer the possession of (something) to (someone); hand over to.
“they gave her water to drink”

We’ve all been there. Living paycheck to paycheck. Wishing someone or something would come along and pull us out of the cycle.

Imagine being that person for someone. Imagine being the one who pays for their groceries when they’ve made the choice to allow their kids to eat rather than themselves. Imagine how you’d feel. Imagine how they would feel.

This is the War on Poverty. And I want to be on the front lines.

According to the most recent study done in 2014 by the U.S. Census Bureau, the official poverty rate was 14.8 percent. That’s 46.7 million people living in poverty. While some of us live in comfort, others are wondering where their next meal is going to come from. Why not be the person to provide that meal?

True Financial Freedom

Changing your mindset on money, writing your own story, and being extremely generous lead to True Financial Freedom. Freedom where you can do what you want with your money. Freedom to give generously because you know you have done the work and are taken care of. Everyone deserves a chance at that.
