I’m going to be honest with you.
I sat down twice this week, looked at my computer and felt like I had nothing to say to you.
Often life can feel so busy and it’s hard to balance everything.
The thought creeps in, should I even write? How many people are actually going to read it?
Why I Started This Blog
However, there’s something that won’t let me quit.
Since I’ve been writing posts, there have been those that I’ve written that have really connected with people.
They were the right person at the right time. And I happened to deliver a message that was helpful at that point in their life.
This is what I hope to continue to do going forward.
So why would I stop?
I don’t expect everyone to read my content all of the time. And if I know you personally and you don’t open my emails very often or read my articles, that’s ok!
Many of you have supported me from the beginning and may not have a particular interest in personal finance, and that’s ok too!
I plan to continue to deliver helpful content for you at different times in your life. And if you get value out of something I write, will you let me know?
If I write an article and someone comes to your mind, will you share it with them?
It saddens me to see the lack of financial literacy in our country.
Schools don’t teach it.
Parents don’t understand it.
And young professionals learn by making mistakes.
Starting this blog, my purpose has been to help people simplify their finances and start living the life they want. To have a clear grasp on how to make money, save money, and work towards financial independence.
Who knows what the future will bring.
But I know if I continue to listen to and serve my audience I can touch the right people at the right time.
I’ve seen the rewarding benefits of having a place to share my thoughts and connect with readers.
I didn’t start this website to make money, I did it to connect with people and build my skills.
Focus On Things People Can’t Take Away From You
