"When your values are clear
your financial decisions
My number one piece of advice for 2020. PAY YOURSELF FIRST, ONE HOUR A DAY OF YOUR INCOME—AUTOMATICALLY! In 2020 I am back on my crusade to help you save more automatically.
Why? Because it WORKS. In 2020 - PAY YOURSELF FIRST.
If you missed last weekend’s blog post, you can read part one here of THIS TOO SHALL PASS. I now want to share part two….
I spent Saturday recording a podcast for you on what’s happening here in Italy with the Coronavirus continuing to grow. I feel like I’m in a time machine right now and able to share with you what many of you are about to go through.
Got a comment to share with me? You can post it here: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I write to you today from Florence, Italy where we have seen our lives change so dramatically in a week and it’s hard to both describe and comprehend.
In a nutshell, we have gone from being free to work, socialize, shop, travel, and live to being quarantined in our homes with our kids who are no longer able to go to school (currently until April 3rd). The very good news that I want you to know is that, “my family and I are healthy and okay”.
I hope your year is off to a strong start. I’m actually writing to you today from Alta Badia, Italy on a ski break with my son, Jack.
The reason I’m in my hotel writing this quick email for you is that the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide – and faster than expected. It’s now even hitting over here in Italy where I am living.
I have just returned from Venice. My incredible mom, Bobbi, came to visit me and I showed her around Italy for ten days.
It was truly the ultimate blessing to have my mom here and to celebrate and share my love of Italy with her. People ask me what makes Italy so special? There are so many things I can say – it’s the beauty of everywhere you go, the incredible people, the food (OMG the food), the history, the art – and then, more and more, it is seeing the way Italians live.
The only problem is I promised myself I’d prioritize paying off my $43,000 in student loans.
