Getting started

I’ll admit it. It took some convincing to get excited about this project.

The road trips with the endless podcast on financial peace and investing were not my favorite things to listen too. But I get it now and I’m ready to get started!

I am so thankful for a husband who has been so supportive. Almost 6 years ago, I quit my full time job in fundraising so that I could step back and evaluate what I really wanted to do. Can you have a midlife crisis at thirty-nine? I was an art major in college and knew that I needed to get back into creating something…anything. I wasn’t only walking away from a career; I was walking away from a pay check. I was able to find a part time job with an organization with a great mission and a boss who “gets me”. I’m now able to spend a couple days a week working on my art and I must say it’s going quite well. My art work is selling and I have had many exhibition opportunities.

So where do I want to be in 5 years? My immediate answer is to be able to play full time on my art and spend more time with hubby. I know that this project means so much more than financial freedom and that I will add more to this list. I will always have some guilt that I am not financially supporting this project as much. This topic is something I will have to work through and I’m sure I will be discussing more in future blog posts.

With this guy by my side I know we can accomplish anything.
