There was never any talk about retirement, investing, or life insurance. When she went to college she had no clue how to pay for it so she took out loans a credit card to get by. Jen's goal is to prove to all the haters that living frugally isn't boing or just for privileged people. She wants to encourage you and help you along your journey in paying off debt and ditching the clutter that holds you back.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares 5 ways to make anything easier.

Episode 795: 5 Ways to Make Anything Easier by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less (Simple Living & Minimalism).

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Podcast cover

2 short posts from Kacie Main where she shares her thoughts on finding a positive perspective in life.

Episode 1458: The Moment AND The Gift by Kacie Main on Finding A Positive Perspective In Life & How to find Gratitude

Kacie Main's affinity for writing started as a child, writing arguably overly emotional letters to family, friends, and boyfriends, and even an anonymous poem to a widowed neighbor. The first paper she wrote in college was nominated for a first-year writing award yet she still didn't think to pursue writing as a career. She spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up." As her career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn. Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out. She didn't sit down to write her book, it jumped out of her at perhaps the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of her life.

Tynan was named as one of the top 25 best bloggers in 2013 by Time Magazine. He believes in making deliberate decisions and breaking away from the herd mentality. He likes learning new things, building habits, exposing the world, connecting with awesome people, and creating good work.
