Since last year, I’ve changed the focus of this site from speaking about my experiences with debt to helping others craft their own debt reduction plans by utilizing and sharing years’ worth of the same strategies that helped me.

What was once just a personal blog for me has evolved into classes, live Periscope broadcasts, YouTube videos, tweets and speeches all about personal finance. Sharing my own story and helping you improve your own financial lives has truly been exhilarating for me.

That’s why I’m so excited to announce that the Rainbow PUSH Coalition and Chevrolet have teamed up to host a series of free workshops designed to educate African American consumers on financial literacy and assist workshop participants in developing concrete steps toward financial security.

So this mom lost (and regained) her job and then was arrested because she left her 9 year old daughter in the park for a few hours while she went to work.  Chime in on the working poor and child care.

I'm on the Stacking Benjamins podcast roundtable today where we chat about purchases that are worth going into debt for. Skip to 10:40 if you'd just like to listen to the roundtable with Average Joe. http://www.stackingbenjamins.com/going-into-debt/

In one of my favorite Ted Talks, social psychologist Paul Piff shares his research into how people behave when they feel wealthy. Paul Piff shares the results of many years of social experiment that show how the interest of others decrease as wealth increases.   Money can change you!

This awesome couple with limited means opened their home to foster children and ended up with a $54,000 windfall after adopting some. I loved this story too much to miss sharing it with you.

I went to the Financial Blogger conference and got to fill in for a quick 5 minutes for someone who dropped out.  I'm nervous here because my slides are only about 3 hours old and I didn't know them! Ignite FinCon - Sandy Smith - Don't Feed The Trolls

Still think that the 1% are the only ones who are able to invest overseas? Boy, are you wrong!

Yeah, this is pretty late, but better late than never right?  I'm still making money online and last month my Google AdSense made a record amount over $400!!! Go on, you want to look, don't you.

And, I have this JOB thing now...
