What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us. – Julia Cameron

Good Stuff From Around the Web

The Family CEO At Other Sites

In addition to The Family CEO, I’m a staff writer at Passive Family Income, a Customer Columnist at PerkStreet Financial, and an education blogger at U.S. News & World Report. Here are my recent posts on those sites:

  • Also, Crystal @ Money Saving Mom has a regular feature on her blog called We Paid Cash. Last week she included a post by me: We Paid Cash: Our Daughter’s First Two Years of College. I encourage you to check it out, not so much for my post, but for the comments. There was a really great discussion that followed. Lots of different ideas and opinions. Also, if you’ve never been to Crystal’s blog before, it’s a great resource of money-saving ideas and inspiration. Thanks, Crystal!

Have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend, everyone!
