Welcome, my name is Karlene. I started this site as a way to share information I am learning about finances, via my personal finance blog. I intend to write about money, debt, personal development, and other subjects I find appealing that affect our wealth/well-being. Since change begins in the mind I will devote more time to personal development/self-improvement than any other area.
It is my belief that to eliminate our current debt (I prefer the word “obligation” over debt) and create or support a wealthy lifestyle we need to address our thinking about money, debt and wealth. Therefore, I am pleased to have learned from my friend Bryan Sykes https://www.linkedin.com/in/bryanbsykes the root word of wealth, which is “weal/wele,” the old English term, which means “well-being.”
This makes much sense to me, because money is important and necessary. But, when we die we cannot take money or material things with us; hence, the subtitle transcending money.
I will do my best to share useful information and resources. I encourage helpful discussion and commentary so that we might all learn and grow.
If You Need Help, Seek a Professional
However, if you feel that you need help of any kind (financial or otherwise), this is not the place for such assistance; please seek out a professional in your area.
I plan to post at least once per week, on Wednesdays. I intend for this to be a dialogue. To stimulate your participation in any conversation on this blog I welcome considerate thoughts, experiences, and/or expertise in the comments section.
If you have a topic you would like me to address, please enter it in the comment box. I look forward to connecting with you, and to us growing together in wealth/well-being.
