Happy Thanksgiving – Some Financial Thankfulness, And a Question For You

Happy Thanksgiving all – I hope you are enjoying this day with family and friends.  I am thankful for my wife, my family, my health, my job – so many things this year.  But on a financial note, we have many things to be thankful for.  Our job, our savings this year, and opportunities to give back.  But even more than all of those, we are thankful this year for the many things that my wife and I have learned…

Living the Simple Life: an Encouraging Visit with a Friend

Living simply is its own reward, but it’s still great to be encouraged about what’s important in life by those around us.  I recently found such encouragement while visiting a longtime friend, a high-profile attorney with a successful career.  But, unlike most attorneys, he lives a simple life, saves, coupons, and is more satisfied than any attorney I know… While the herd went one way, he went another… My friend (We’ll call him “Jim”) and I share a high-achieving, ambitious, and…

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Finances With Purpose

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Finances With Purpose

Welcome to Finances With Purpose!  This is where it begins…financial independence, saving, investing, knocking out debt, and focusing on the more important things in life.

For more on my goals, purpose, and background, see the About Me page. A new beginning…with a lot already on the…
