Have you ever heard me talk about being a “wannabe minimalist?”
This phrase describes me to a T.
I CRAVE simplicity and could probably proclaim myself a minimalist in a few areas of my life. But not all, or even that many. I think this goes all the way back to the time spent, and lessons learned, while living in a 3rd world country for 6 years, experiencing culture shock, living a very simple, minimalistic life, and then surviving reverse culture shock. These experiences showed me how to make more with less – literally, emotionally, and mentally.
When I dig deep, it’s that I want more out of life, and that translates into wannabe minimalism – less stuff at my office, fewer things on my dresser, and a schedule that is manageable and borders on “chaotic.” (I protect my travel schedule and our family’s schedule/activities fiercely…not overscheduling any of us, and maintaining a balance of afternoons and evenings at home, with a few long nights at the gym or soccer field throughout the month.)
This desire for simplicity and balance has allowed me to squeeze out every drop of goodness that I can from the present moment I’m in.
An area that has been on my mind and heart more recently is finances, specifically our business and personal finances. My husband and I both own our own businesses and we have been diligent in setting up a simple system for our business finances, and how that spills into our personal finances – both from a monthly cash flow perspective, and also from a taxes angle. We’ve learned many great lessons over the past few years, and continue to open our minds to new methods and ways of thinking about money.
Money gets messy.
It gets messy in that we bring “money bags” with us. And I don’t mean bags of money (wouldn’t that be nice), I mean money baggage. The thoughts and attitudes about money that we form as children, the mistakes we make when we’re “untouchable” teens and early 20 somethings, and the hard work that has to be done to unpack those “money bags.”
It’s a journey, and process, and we continue to be diligent with our personal spending. Where am I going with this?
I’m going here.
I want to tell you about this amazing new resource that I heard about first hand from it’s founder and editor, mere days before it’s release this month!
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to catch up with my friend Joshua Becker from becoming minimalist. We were both attending a party thrown by Dave Ramsey, Chris Hogan and their team, and we got to chatting about the new projects we were working, and he lit up like a Christmas tree telling me about his latest baby…
And you want to know the part he was most excited about…
Being able to offer SUCH AN AMAZING DEAL ON IT.
Seriously, he was so smitten about how practical and useful the magazine is…and how gorgeous and simple the design is…and what an amazing value it is for YOU.
I wish you had been standing with us all (our friend Jamie was there too!), so that you could hear for yourself just how stoked he is to share this magazine with you, and help you along your personal finance journey.
He has worked hard to find the best experts to contribute just the right content to each issue. The reading experience, the design, and the article content will help you focus and reflect on what matters most in your finances.
