Hi Whitney Hansen & everyone else. I listen to your pod cast on the 12 week program, I'm in the process of doing that for my 3 credit cards I have. I just paid off off a piece of furniture I just bought $1425 ( paid it off before the interest kick in with 2 month to spare) but anywho back to my pain question. Should I just focus on 1 or 2 credit cards to get them paid off quick or stay with the budge I have to have all 3 paid off in 12 weeks? Then take the extra pays & focus all that on to my truck payment? I'm already contributing 10% to my 401K & working on building up my emergency fund. Thank yall in advance 💜

Listened to today's info on eliminating debt. It was great. It was inspiring because it was very truthful. Thank you
Hey everyone!! Getting some advice on long term disability insurance. I have long term disability that covers $1300/month for 5 years for $45/month. They did exclude lower back problems because I mentioned that I go to the chiropractor. I was thinking about cancelling it because I'm really wanting to focus on my debt. my agent is really saying I shouldn't because the price could go up even in the next year and this price is locked in until I'm 65. What do you all think? I'm an independent consultant, I don't have options through employer.
Thank you for mentioning the Losing 100 pounds podcast. I really have enjoyed what I have heard so far. I have just started but the part that resonates is small changes that become a lifestyle. It fascinates me that getting out of debt and losing weight have so many relatable parts. Just one small change can make such a difference. I have some kind of aversion to doing a budget, but you had mentioned that keeping a spending log (like a food log) can really help. Mind blown! You are so right, I can't tell you how much this advice helped me. Thank you! So glad I found you and your podcast!
Hey Whitney! I just found you through a pin on Pinterest! I'm looking forward to seeing your posts!
Thank you for putting together the money summit! All the speakers were incredible and the information shared was so valuable! I feel like I have a new direction and spice for where I am going from here! :)
So I currently live in Japan, and I stayed up all night to make sure I can watch these videos live (they air from 2am to 4am) because it's Just That Good.

Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of The Money Summit. See you tomorrow! (Time to get some sleep.)
Love your videos. Learned alot. I got my finances in order for now! ;0) Thank you.

Looking for a good financial book? 📚

I have been loving this one!

Some of my favorite takeaways are:

✖️Earning wealth and KEEPING wealth are totally different beasts.

✖️Respect luck. It plays a huge role in our financial successes.

✖️Margin of safety- factoring in the cost of losing is critical to building wealth (those that don’t usually lose big time).

✖️ It’s hard to calculate the ROI on emergency funds that allow you peace of mind, and the ability to walk away from a job you don’t like.

✖️ Most people’s happiness comes from feeling in control over our time. We sometimes leave great jobs with fulfilling work if we don’t feel in control of the way our time is spent.

I’m about 80% done with this book so I’ll be sure to share any additional takeaways. 📚🐛

One of my biggest peeves is when people say “I don’t have money to invest” yet always find money to eat out.

(PS. I speak from lots of personal experience here!😂)

Money comes with opportunity costs.

We all have choices.

By making room for investing in your finances you are buying yourself a better future and more opportunities.

It’s officially painting day at @cascadedome !

We’ve been building a sauna in the mountains…on a hill. 😆

Excited to start working on the interior next week!

Seriously, can you imagine how fun it will be to sit in a sauna in the woods with snow coming down? 😍❄️

Buying into the opinions of other people is something we alllll struggle with from time to time.

Here are a few tips to help you beat comparison syndrome:

✨Remind yourself that most people are deeply in debt and chasing happiness through stuff.

✨Unsubscribe from emails that tempt you to spend money.

✨Limit time on social media.

✨Get a group of friends that cares about sh*t that actually matters outside of material items.

I was reading an article on BecomingMinimalist.com and had a few “GTFO” moments.

Some of these stats are insane:

✖️The average American family spends $1,700 on clothes annually
✖️While the average American throws away 65 pounds of clothing per year
✖️Nearly half of American households don’t save any money
✖️ There are 300,000 items in the average American home

My favorite quote from this article is:

“We own too much stuff. And it’s robbing us of life.”

Which debt option resonates with you most?🤔

I personally am a snowball kinda girl.

Just remember- you already have a debt free date on the calendar.

Paying extra just speeds up that date.💰

What’s one place that’s been on your bucket list for a long time?🤔

For me that was the Grand Canyon. Can’t wait to go back and do some backpacking there.🎒⛺️😍

Ah, Prime Day.🙃

I love a great deal as much as the next person, BUT if you’re buying something because it’s on sale and you’re saving money you aren’t actually saving money.

**The only exception to this is items you were already going to buy and already have budgeted for.**

Too often I see people focus all of their energy on cutting expenses.

Don’t get me wrong, as a financial coach, I see waaaaaay too many people blowing money and living beyond their means.

But you can only cut so much.

Eventually, you’ve got to prioritize making more (while keeping your lifestyle minimal).

That’s one of the biggest reasons I started furniture flipping. To show people how much you can actually make. I just ended up enjoying it so much I still do it today. 🤣

So here’s a mindset exercise you can implement today-

🧠Instead of saying “I can’t afford it” ask yourself “how can I afford it?”

It’s hiking 🥾 season!

There’s always a growing influx of people of some of my favorite trails- but let’s talk about some trail etiquette so you and everyone else can have a great time!

ETIQUETTE 1: Let the slowest hiker set the pace

Hiking sucks when you’re the slowest person in the group. To help everyone in your group have a good time and for safety reasons, let the slowest hiker set the pace.

ETIQUETTE 2: Practice the 7 LNT principles

Leave no trace principles are:

1) Plan ahead and prepare.
2) Travel and camp on durable surfaces.
3) Dispose of waste properly.
4) Leave what you find.
5) Minimize campfire impacts (be careful with fire).
6) Respect wildlife.
7) Be considerate of other visitors.

ETIQUETTE 3: Uphill hikers have right of way

If you’re going downhill, step aside to let uphill hikers have the right of way. This is just common practice.

And just to reiterate one of the LNT principles again—

NEVER LITTER. Pick up your garbage, carry your banana peels out, etc. Take extra precautions to secure your trash on your packs so you don’t accidentally litter.

Enjoy the trails this summer!

Special focus on #3.💸

I find that when I feel insecure about myself, my MO used to be buying a couple shirts or makeup.

I never spent an obscene amount of money, it was always less than $100– but it added up.

And more than that, it was a terrible way to cope with the underlying feelings.

In fact, it only caused more feelings of crappiness because then I had to deal with the financial aspects in additional to the emotional feelings too. 😆

What worked for me was finding an alternative way to deal with emotions.

Instead of pacifying through spending, I instead:

✖️Take 10-15 min gratitude walks
✖️Listen to an inspirational podcast (@garyvee and @edmylett get me in the right mindset)
✖️Take a nap (I tell you, a good nap solves so many problems)

Being great with money is rarely about the numbers and almost always about behaviors/habits.

A NOTE ON FEELING READY-

We’ve been working our butts off creating our glamping site (@cascadedome) in the mountains.🌲

It’s so fulfilling to have a vision in your head and see it come to life.

This project has required:

✖️Working our Monday-Friday and then driving 2 hours (each way) every Saturday and Sunday (8 hours in the car every weekend)
✖️Thousands of dollars
✖️Hundreds of hours watching YouTube videos
✖️Very manual labor
✖️Constant problem solving
✖️Too many cups of coffee and Sour Patch Watermelon 🍉 candy

I never want to glamorize anything I do in my life, nothing is easy. And social media rarely shows the real side of things.

But here’s the big secret- we have no idea what we are doing.

We figure it out as we go. If you are willing to “figure it out” you can do anything.

Whether you’ve always dreamed of going back to school, starting that business you’ve thought about, finally added up how much debt you have, you’re never going to feel ready enough.

Just commit to being okay with never knowing all the answers or being qualified/ready enough.

Ready is a lie.

Living in the present is one of my favorite financial tips.

It leads to an increase in:
✔️Happiness
✔️Contentment
✔️Peace of mind

It’s easy to get in your head and overthink your life or live in the future.

Whenever I start feeling like I’m living too far in the future, I stop, take a deep breath and focus on what’s happening around me.

How do you stay focused on the present?

Breaking this doooown!💃🏼

Three things:
1) I’m showing ETFs because if you are new to investing your portfolio is likely not large enough for index funds

2) ETF= exchange traded fund (exchange traded meaning traded like a stock and fund meaning collection of stocks)

3) None of this is meant to be direct financial advice. Just for educational purposes only.

Let me know what questions you have!

@jbarrettnyc taught me so much from this episode of The Money Nerds podcast!

Seriously- she had me pondering how societal pressures on women and money show up in my life.

In this episode we talk about:
✖️The different messages boys and girls receive growing up pertaining to money
✖️Gender wealth gaps
✖️The importance of a growth mindset
✖️Common issues women face when taking breadwinning roles

It was so eye opening and so good.

So important to remember— when you earn enough money from:

✔️Stocks
✔️Bonds
✔️Real estate
✔️Passive (residual) business income
✔️Etc

When those activities make enough for you to step away and not be tied down to trading time for money and still pay for your current and future lifestyle- you’ve officially hit “retirement.”

A better word for this all is Financial Independence.

You can hit that number at 35 or 65– but at the end of the day, it’s a number not an age.
