What are you doing with your life?
When you were 16, I bet you pictured life would be just like this.
And then all of a sudden you were 20, then 25, then…don’t say it…30.
You peeked at your bank account to see that the remainder of last week’s paycheque is just hanging in there, then WHAM. Out comes your Netflix bill, your monthly banking fees, and something that looks a little suspicious, but might be a transaction that didn’t go through last night. Amazon.
You’re a grown-ass adult, right?
You went to school, you got good grades, you got a job, your living situation’s kind of a mess (but whose isn’t), but when you look at the size of your student loan the room gets really dark and you’re not sure if you’re awake or not. Instead of Monica, you became Rachel, but instead of working for Ralph Lauren you work at Walmart and you don’t have a hair and makeup crew to touch you up behind the scenes.
Enough of the drama, already
Welcome to Own Up Grown-Up, where I tell you how awful your life is so that you can wallow in self-pity for the rest of the day
Actually, if any of that stuff I said before is true, you’ve come to the right place, because we’re all about turning that terror train around.
What you need to know is this
Own Up Grown-Up is all about taking action to achieve your life goals, those things you dream about as you drive through morning traffic.
You will not find legal or financial advice here, but you will find a community of people who are where you’re at, and ready to change.
Change?! Scary, yes. Inevitable, also yes.
What you’ll also find here:
- The answers to your most important financial, career, and business questions.
- Tools and resources to help you figure out where you’re at and where you’re going.
- Someone to go find all of that for you (me!)
- Bad 90s references (I can’t help myself, and neither should you).
Who are you and what have you done with my time?
Since my mid-20s, I’ve been obsessed with setting goals and attacking them with every ounce of energy I have.
I’m not a financial advisor, life coach, or a guru. I’m a very curious woman with a knack for asking the right questions, and zero shame when it comes to asking them.
Like you, I’m over living paycheque-to-paycheque, wondering where my money goes every month. I also share your struggle with indecision, corporate mistrust, and trying to find a way to be young and fabulous, but with a solid plan for the future.
In 2016, I decided to take the next step in realizing my ideal lifestyle. I quit corporate and started my own business. Why? Not because I loathe working for “the man”, but because it was the surest way to achieve my biggest life goals.
You don’t have to have guts of steel, hustle your ass off, burn bridges, or commit to “radical self-care” (whatever that even means) to get what you want in life. You do have to want it bad enough that you’ll do whatever it takes to get it.
This site is where I’m going to share with you everything I learn about personal finance, investing, career choices and trends, smart and ethical spending, and setting and achieving those big life goals.
