Welcome to Against The Grain Financials
Recently I've been catching myself talking out loud discussing with anyone who cares to listen about how our society today seems to weaken us financially. I get frustrated hearing the subliminal and not so subliminal messages sent throughout the media about how we should spend our money, or how we are victims of our situations. So my partner, who has been my best friend for over 12 years, finally suggested that I start a blog. I am someone who LOVES life. I enjoy finding ways to experience something new, help someone grow, soak in nature, travel, eat and cook quality food, and spend time with friends and family. I have found this joy in life that I fear many are missing out on. One of the main reasons that I fear people are missing out on this joy, is due to their understanding of wealth. Being intentional with finances can bring so much joy to our lives as well as peace of mind. Over the years, I have seen my family struggle with finances. I was raised with a financial scarcity mindset. This mindset helped me in many ways, but at the same time, it prevented me from taking any financial risks, and in many cases, had me leading a life of mediocrity in the day to day "rate race" of life.
I hope this blog will inspire even one person to be intentional about their finances and go Against The Grain of what today's society is telling us to do with our money. So welcome to my blog, and I hope you choose to join me on this journey. Please share your own thoughts in the comments section below. Have a Happy New Year, and lets make 2018 the best year yet!
