Welcome! My name is Julie and I began The Family CEO when I decided to make my family’s finances my business. Literally. In March of 2006 I hired myself to focus on our money: tracking it, spending it more purposefully, and finding new ways to save it. This blog documents those efforts.
While these activities weren’t actually new to me, documenting them certainly was. And calling myself and this blog “The Family CEO” gave me a new way of thinking about my role. It made me more purposeful and gave my efforts more meaning.
Eventually I expanded the blog to include other topics such as organizing and simplifying. Basically anything that I’m passionate about that relates to the running of a household is fair game. You’ll find a complete category list in my sidebar.
In addition to being the author of this blog, I am a wife, mother of two, and part-time bookkeeper/office manager. My formal education includes a degree in Business Administration, which probably explains where the “Family CEO” idea came from.
