Your Life is Happening NOW

“Life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Most of you will recognize that quote from the timeless movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  And if you don’t?  Please go watch it. Now.  Seriously. Go.

This line from a light-hearted comedy has turned into a seriously deep quote about life.  Today I wanted to share what this quote means to me.

Life is happening right now.  Look around.  These moments will never happen again.  We only have one life, and we don’t know how long it’s going to last.

What’s the Best Piece of Advice You’ve Ever Received?

When I started the Living With Money podcast, I really wanted to hear everybody’s individual story.  Every person on this planet is unique.  Everyone has different stories.  Everyone has different experiences.  No two people are the exact same.

What Does It Mean To ‘Live With Money’?

When I first settled on the name for this website ‘Living With Money’, it was kind of an arbitrary name.  It was broad enough for me to talk about a number of different topics, while still having some sort of focus.

Welcome to Living With Money!

Welcome to Living With Money!

Through blog posts and weekly podcasts, Living With Money is aimed to promote financial literacy and help everyday people feel comfortable with their money.
