Earlier this month, I (virtually) met Andrew from the Family Money Plan. He is a fellow personal finance junkie and he’s Canadian, like me! Andrew lives, mortgage-free I should mention, in Winnipeg, so we’re practically neighbours. 😛
The thing I most admire about Andrew is how he paid off their dream home in less than a decade. That is unheard of! If you’re wanting to do the same and steal some hacks on how his family did it, read the following post:
Besides sharing uber helpful finance and mortgage-crushing tips on his blog, Andrew also features other personal finance bloggers in a series called “Behind the Screen”.
For his 100th post (I’m so honoured to be a milestone!), he asked me if I wanted to take part in the series with an interview of my own… and I immediately said yes! So, if you’re not tired of learning more about me, head on over to Andrew’s blog to read about our interview. He asked me some very deep, introspective questions like how I got started on my financial journey, my biggest obstacles and who my money heroes are… check it out guys and please leave a lovely comment!
As if that’s not enough, I also learned this week that the Smart Woman Blog made it into Personal Income’s “Top 25 Most Honest Finance Blogs”. See who else made the list by clicking the link below. I can vouch for this list because some of my role models and blogger friends are on this list also – I know how hard they hustle! (Hi Michelle, Barry, Chonce, Melanie & Tom <3)
I can’t even begin to describe how this makes me feel… to be recognized and appreciated for the work that I have put into this blog! I was feeling kind of bummed out, especially with a 55-hour work week at the hospital making my life just a tad bit more difficult this week (because you know, I’m all grumpy from lack of sleep).
It’s things like this that keep me going! After a 12 hour shift or a crappy-ass day, I love coming to my blog and coming up with things that will help others hit their financial goals. I didn’t think that the connections and network I’ve created as a result of writing this blog would be the big reward that it became – but I’m extremely blessed that it did.
Thanks again guys!
And to my readers, thank you for continuing to stick with me! <3
