Hey there!

I’m trying something new this week, so let me know what you think in the comments. I want to write to you more than once a week, and I want you to get to know me better. So, inspired by my friend Emilie Aries of Bossed Up, I’m starting my own Founder Friday post.

I’ll be talking about my money habits and experiences, I’ll talk about what I’m excited about and what I’m up to. And of course, I’ll close things out with a few tips for you as you go into the weekend. Let me know if there’s anything different you would like to see from me!

How I Earned Money This Week

I think it’s important to be transparent about money, especially as a new business owner. Just because I’m getting a lot of exposure on the internet doesn’t mean that I’m earning as much money as I’d like to be earning. But I am earning some money; more than I was expecting for my first month as a full-time entrepreneur! Most of my clients pay monthly, so I’m not earning most of my money week by week, but I did have some other income this week.

How I Spent Money This Week

I’m trying to be very tight with money this month. It’s the first month that Dan and I are living off of his income only, so we can’t be nearly as loose with our spending. We’re also planning a wedding, so all of my business income is going straight into savings. However, life happens, so I definitely spent some money this week.

What I’m Writing

On Monday, I wrote about the Danish concept of Hygge. And I’m still waiting for my SmartWool socks to arrive in the mail.

What I’m Excited About

I’m going to be featured on the Being Boss podcast on Tuesday, January 30th! The hosts encourage people to call in and leave a message explaining how we are being boss in our own lives. I called a few weeks ago to tell them that I quit my day job to be a full-time business owner, and they will be playing the recording on the next episode!


Money Circle meetups started again this week! We took November and December off, but we’re back! This week, we met to set motivating goals for 2018. It was a great group, and I can’t wait for February’s gathering!
