financial action

The other day, I came across a guy touting the most complicated investing spreadsheet I’ve ever seen.

It was fancy. It was complex. And It had terms I didn’t know.

The thing is, I read about personal finance all the time. And yet, in that moment, I felt completely clueless.

And I thought, are you kidding me right now?

That’s exactly the reason that women think they’ll never understand personal finance and investing.

I’m dang tired of it. Being good with your money has nothing to do with fast-paced day trading. It doesn’t matter if you know the made up terms or are good with numbers. And you don’t need a complicated spreadsheet to be wealthy.

Being good with money is actually about habits and psychology. (That’s not as exciting, so no one talks about it) But you know what, ANYONE can learn it. (That’s something else they don’t want you to know.)

Saving and investing is about:

  • making your dreams for the future happen
  • taking care of your family
  • slow and steady steps that build long-term wealth

I’m here to tell you that you can do this. You can build wealth on your terms. Even if you feel like you don’t know everything, or anything about the finance world.

Because it doesn’t matter that you don’t know the fluff.

You’re not playing the short-term roller coaster ride game.

You’re playing your own game. One where you bring your family security. You sleep well at night. And use smart and simple money moves to take care of yourself for years. (Use these smart financial questions to help guide you)

And while you may make mistakes, you’ll keep learning and growing. And that’s all this takes friend. It’s a willingness to stop feeling intimidated and start taking financial baby steps in the right direction.

Stay the course friend. Even if you’re not doing it in a flashy sort of way.
