Introduction I hit my financial freedom number in 15 years, building 55K+ assets each year as a single woman making an average of $75K annual US dollars. This website isn't about get-rich schemes, it's about building wealth with an average US income. The process was more exciting and empowering than I ever dreamed. I still lived well and continued to give to my family and to my community. To continue this passion project, I became Certified in Financial Education Instruction by the National Financial Educators Council last year The website is as old as my journey to financial freedom and offers the learnings and tools that proved successful along the way. I hope to keep the real-life money conversation alive. The 1% really are getting richer, the middle class is shrinking, and we all need to stay on our toes, managing our assets as best as we can.
