I’m Nicole, wife to Eric and mother to Erica, Sydney, and Caleb.
I’m just a regular girl trying to find my way in the big, bad world of money.
Professionally, I am a certified physician assistant,(sometimes) college professor, with a passion for money and personal finance.
A few random facts about me:
I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland
I love makeup
I’m a minimalist
I love 90s rap- Method Man and MosDef are my faves
I’ve been called cheap all of my life(my retort is I’m frugal, not cheap- and there is a difference)
One of my pet-peeves- when my children talks to me through the bathroom door…uh, hello can’t I just have a few minutes to pee in peace?
If you have been reading my blog up to this point then it might seem weird that I’m posting a‘Welcome’ message after blogging for the past two years.
Well here’s the thing…
I’ve been struggling to find my voice and figure out exactly what I want the focus of this blog to be.
Even as I write this my ideas are a work in progress, but at least I’m now clear on what I don’t want this blog to be.
I don’t want to just be another generic blog, recycling the same ole’ money tips that you can find on fifty million other blogs out here in cyber space.
So no generic’10 Ways to Save Money on ______’ posts from me.
There are tons of those blogs out there already if that is what you are interested in.
The plan, moving forward, is to document my journey to financial independence(FI) and sharing my unique perspective on personal finance and my(ever-changing) decisions regarding how I manage my money along the way.
