I wrote minimalism and productivity into this title because I think they go hand in hand. When we cut back the clutter in our life we can focus on the more important things to us. This in turn helps us be more productive towards those things.
I’m really passionate about spending your time and money wisely, growing as a person (especially us millennials) and working towards goals and dreams. This topic seemed to fit a lot of those things and was something I wanted to write for you guys.
Let’s get into it! continue reading
Have you ever heard about a friend going through a hard time and wished you could help? Have you ever heard of someone’s car trouble and wished you could pay it for them?
But then you look at your own finances and you think you can’t really afford it?
I’m going to let you in on a little secret! You have the money, it’s just going other places.

We are living a perfectly good life but think that having more money will always, without a shadow of a doubt, make it better. Lately I’ve been wondering why that is.

As incredibly fun it is to add a filter to your picture, write a funny caption, and watch all your friends share in the liking of this moment in time, it’s also incredibly pointless. (Sorry I’m starting this article like ripping off a band aid.) I believe social media started with a pure heart, and though there are some good things it can be used for, like anything else, without moderation it turns bad really quick. The problem then seems obvious, there is no moderation. continue reading
