Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!
Today, I am going to tell you why I am proud of my mom.
Yesterday, I was told by my mom that she is following my blog religiously. And because of the content written on this blog, she was inspired to save a $4000 emergency fund within the last 4 months! Wow! She said that the feeling of being financially secure is an awesome feeling.
Dang, woman! Now I better make sure to keep up my end of the financial savvy bargain. I’d like to also add that recently my mother also increased her 401K contributions at work. This woman is on fire!
For all you bloggers out there, content is king. Practice what you preach also comes to mind.
To My Mom
Mom, I am so over-thrilled with your financial accomplishments and speechless, at the same time, that my writings could have such effect. I know I write this blog to hold myself accountable for my financial journey and do hope I can help others to take that step towards a better financial life. But to know I am actually helping someone.. to find out someone so close to me is being rightfully affected – amazing!
I know this financial journey is a learned journey for both of us. We’ve come a far way. And because our family is full of stubborn women, we will push on to become successful at whatever we put our hard work into… We will continue to succeed in our financial path to become the independent financially savvy women we chose to be. Thank you, Mom. Thank you for instilling that stubbornness within my soul. Happy Mother’s Day!
