“Really define what you want your focus and intention to be for this next year, and then work out your more specific goals. And that is where I think that you should start. And it's really important to help figure out why you want that. Like what do you want? What do you think that that goal will do for your life? Like, how will it change you? And is that what you actually want? And is it important enough? Are you excited enough about that goal to stick with it for a whole year? Because in order to reach your goals, no matter what it is, whether it's financial or you know, personal, family oriented, whatever the case may be, you have to be excited about it, especially if you're gonna stick with it for a whole year.”

Do you need time, space, and accountability to take action on the things you KNOW you should be doing, such as budgeting so you can actually pay off debt, save money, make a meal plan, and all the other things that keep falling off your to-do list? Would you thrive in a supportive community of other busy moms who understand what you're going through and are working to achieve similar financial goals?

If that’s a YES, I invite you to sign up for the Money Success Club at
