Finances and fun- we don’t often see those two words in the same sentence. I want to change the way we tend to think about money, often with fear and stress, and shift that to fun and freedom.
One of the reasons I created MoneyMaestra was to bring the Joy into Money. When your finances are organized and you are comfortable in the money world- it can actually be a lot of fun working your budget, reducing your debt, saving, investing, and responsibly spending. All, as you walk the path to financial freedom. I am not talking about a get rich quick plan, but rather about starting wherever you are in your current money situation, facing it head on, getting organized, and feeling empowered. Learning that you don’t have to be rich to be financially free.
The idea behind Friday Finance Fun is to have conversations with real people about real money situations. To come together for a money “Happy” Half Hour- where each event will find me and one special friend talking all things money. I am working to demystify money- to take off its veil. Once you understand that you control your money- instead of the other way around- all becomes clearer.
Each person has their own money story- for some of us, it is the money story we learned when we were children, such as, “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” or “There’s never enough money,” or “We’ll just have to scrape by.” For some of us it is the story we created and continue to tell ourselves, such as “I’ll never get out of debt,” or “I can’t change my money situation,” or “I’m stuck.” Stories such as these do not serve us but are often are on replay in our heads. So much of financial freedom comes from rewriting our money stories-which is in our power.
So I hope that you will come take this Friday Finance Fun adventure with me. You will meet some interesting people along the way, learn a lot, hear some transformational stories, have fun, and start leaning into the Joy of Money.
Susan, the MoneyMaestra
