Mom guilt is a real thing and it is rough. Keeping track of schedules, concerts, sports and managing individual personalities is exhausting.
That’s why I’m here to tell you that you can actually be a better mom by doing less. Being a minimalist parent, I have learned to simplify as many things as I possibly can. Including how I raise my children.
I want them to grow up being productive and knowing who they are. There are 7 super simple things I have done over the years to have more independent kids that you can easily execute.
I am a sucker for a good, not Cinderella story. A story where a woman rises up, kicks some booty, and doesn’t wait for Prince Charming to save her. Women who are intelligent, strong, and unwilling to settle. Thankfully, we have a world filled with women like this. As a stay at home mom of (oh my gosh) almost a decade, I have a strong desire to use my passions and talents to help my family have the best life possible. No, I don’t mean buying my kids all the coolest clothes. The kind of life I’m talking about is one of purpose, without financial stress. That’s why I’m talking today about 5 women entrepreneurs who helped retire their husbands. Not only that, but they also provided financial freedom for their families!

For those of you who haven’t heard yet, enrolling in Dave Ramsey’s course Financial Peace University was one of the best decisions I had ever made. I finally reached the point in life where I craved financial freedom but I still had no idea how to execute it. Previously I had lived with a scarcity mindset in which I thought paying for a course when I was already financially struggling was a stupid idea. The truth is, if I would have shelled out the $80 years ago I would have wound up savings myself thousands of dollars in debt. Hindsight…right? While there is no way I could fill you in on everything Financial Peace University has to offer, I do want to share with you Dave Ramsey’s Baby Steps and how you can execute them at home. Even after you know these steps, I still recommend enrolling in the course as there is much to learn!
Investing has always been something that made me nervous. It all seemed too complicated and far beyond my math comprehension. Technically I shouldn’t even be worried about investing right now because we are still working to pay off our debt. However, there is an investment app that just seemed too simple to pass up. Acorns is a spare change investment app that rounds up your purchases to the nearest dollar and then invests that money for you! If you have wondered as long as I did about how Acorns work and whether or not it’s actually worth it, I have it all laid out here for you. Plus, I will show you my personal slow-start simple investment plan to turn $50 per month into $150,000.
