The Heavy Purse underwent a makeover this weekend to coincide with a new focus. I love it and hope you do too! As I mentioned back in January, I’ve made the decision to broaden my scope beyond raising financially confident kids to help you become Financially Real. Don’t worry — I’m still going to provide plenty of tips on children and money! But I’m also going to help you get real with your finances too.
One thing everyone also tells me they want to achieve is financial freedom, which is completely understandable. It’s what I want too.The allure of being able to do what you want, when you want is so enticing.
What I found is that it doesn’t live up to the hype for many people because they built unreasonable expectations around it, assuming life will somehow become perfect while it remains gloriously messy. Or they may have achieved freedom, but a lack of confidence still enslaves them with self-doubt and uncertainty, preventing them from enjoying their money.
I’ve been helping people get real with their finances for 23 years and reclaim their financial power. Not just on the good days either, but during complicated and emotional times too, which is almost every day.
On Friday, I’ll go into more detail on Financially Real. In the meantime, please take a tour of the new site and let me know what you think!
