Went to Japan!!!!  Crazy crazy cool trip.  I can’t WAIT to tell you all about it.  I also ran into Ramit Sethi, he wrote the book: I Will Teach You To Be Rich (Awesome book, by the way).  I met him at the first Financial Blogger’s Conference and he did a live critique of my front of the entire room.  I may actually host a travel webinar soon because SO many people ask how I travel so much.  AND I stay credit card free! I also went to New York City.

Nothing has changed here.  I still taught my normal 2 classes per week.  I’ve been giving away more and more classes because of my travels.


HUGE news here.  I’ve partnered with Monet Gogh Sip and opened a new space.  I am now officially a commercial lease holder.  I need to step up my sewing side hustle game because I have to pay rent and bills! Both scary and exciting!!!

So I am a part of the DEA’s Citizen’s Academy and it is crazy cool.  It’s a 6 week program where we tour their training facilities and participate in training exercises.

Not miss anymore posts!  Automation. More collaborations.  I’m attending BlogHer next week so that I can connect with some craft bloggers and other personal finance bloggers too.  Hustle, Hustle, Hustle!
