THE INTENTION BEHIND FUNDING HAPPY

Become Minimalist

I’m never going to talk about clipping coupons or finding deals on the web.  I’m not a frugalista and I prefer to focus on optimizing time, wanting less and managing larger expenses than saving .20 cents on yogurt at Safeway (not that there is any shame in that).  I hesitate to call myself a minimalist because it conjures ideas of suffering or feeling deprived.  But in reality, the reverse is true.  The more I edit my surroundings, the better I feel.  To me, minimalism is about being surrounded by the things I absolutely need or love.  Nothing more, nothing less. 

Become Financially Independent

I love to talk about the power of choice that’s derived from managing money intentionally.  How to make it, how to save it and how to make it grow.  You need money to live a good life and be your best self.  Money enables you to fund what makes you happy and gives you options + choices so you don’t have to do things you don’t want to do, or be in situations you don’t want to be in.  As women, we owe this to ourselves and each other to be as powerful as we can be.

Become Happier

People are notoriously bad at understanding what will bring them happiness.  That’s why we stay in jobs we don’t like, to buy things we don’t need to fit in with people we don’t really care about.  It’s a never-ending cycle that adds to our anxiety, exhaustion and constant distraction.  I don’t consider myself an unhappy person, but I believe cultivating a simpler life with less stuff and more financial stability to make empowered decisions, will continue to expand moments of joy and decrease moments of stress and anxiety.

About me

I’m a Silicon Valley based DINK and a communicator by trade. I love home workouts, great wines under $10, rescue dogs and yoga pants (although I’ve culled the heard since becoming minimalist). I can’t function without at least 8 hours of sleep and I have an insatiable curiosity around what it means to live well. Fortunately, I lucked out in finding the best husband on earth (sorry, ladies!) and the most insatiably cute rescue mutts ever.
