My name’s Tiffany, I’m a thirty-something mother of two kids under three. I have a husband, two dogs, a home and a nursing career that is no longer fulfilling. I was in college for six years and have been working as a nurse for the past eight years.
In the past few years my life has been going through some major lifestyle changes. I had one child. Life changed; then had another and life became even more hectic. Money wasn’t an issue we had to deal with until the first baby came around and we realized we had no plan and no savings. We were forced to confront our ignorant money habits. It was difficult, but we then changed our lifestyle, cut down our bills, shopped smarter and actually created a long-term financial plan.
The reason I started this blog was to take you on a journey with me, to share my life, its challenges and improvements. I have been there, as the over-worked nurse and the mom stressed out about financial stability and the chaotic house.
I plan on retiring early, starting my own business in the near future and spending quality time with my kids and husband, while we can still walk arthritis-free.
So stick around for smart money tips, simplifying life strategies. Learn to love what you do and have money become a by-product of your passion.
2017 – 2018 Update
I’m happy to say I am a fully committed Business Startup Coach, having started my own business with minimal monetary investment (come on, nothing worth doing in life is FREE). After having solved the money issues in our life, I’ve moved on to focusing on becoming a better version of myself. This in turn led to other creative thinking and the urge to do MORE.
Coaching others and seeing their progress (I mean, helping someone get their 1st clients in under a month is pretty impressive, even to me) is extremely fulfilling. The best part of it is getting to the root of a person’s desires, sometimes they get buried after years of working a “job” and helping them realize that it IS possible.
A coach is not unlike a personal trainer, who you come to to lose 20lbs and then continue to work with him/her because they push you beyond the limits that you thought you had. So not only are you thinner, you’ve now got a six pack, toned arms and a firm, round tush.
December 2018 Update
I have made it past a year as a coach! I am still working as nurse, part time. When I started, and I heard this to be a common phenomenon for fresh entrepreneurs, I imagined making progress rapidly. I imagined having 20 coaching clients and being able to quit my job by now. HA!
Looking back now, I have fallen more in love with the art of coaching and keep in my that the tortoise will always win. I believe I have a special advantage being a new coach to others, since I was on their journey so recently and can easily recognize all the signs of what their challenges are
Our family life, just like the business, is also a constant work in progress. Though I’m happy to say that I feel a certain contentment in life. I can see clearly the path in front of me and am so excited for reaching my fullest potential, as a mom, a coach, a nurse, a wife, a dog mom, an entrepreneur, and a self-actualized human being.
What I’ve learned and seen thus far: every single person is put on this Earth with a purpose. It is my purpose and mission to help them recognize their own value and guide them on their way to a full, meaningful life.
That’s me and the crew!
