This week's money challenge: what's your "why?"


#21

I want money work for me so I can work for my family. The biggest gift you can give them is the time you spend together. I don’t want to dedicate my time to an employer until I’m 60+. Life is about something more…


#22

I’d say that My kneejerk answer is WHY NOT? If don’t build financial self-sufficiency, then that means somebody else has to support me and I don’t want to be a financial burden to anyone. The first 24-ish years completely on the parent’s dime is certainly long enough.

To take it deeper, though,

I saw a quote recently that I really liked. “The price of everything is the amount of life that you exchange for it.” I want to have more control over how I spend my time, and solving the money equation goes a long way in creating the optimal life.


#23

My why is taking care of my family and loved ones and to savor and enjoy my time with them.

This has been a HUGE year of ups and downs for us and I want to change up my work and routine and see if I can find a better fit for this season of life.


#24

Love that!


#25

Always a great “why”. A very doable for most people who take the time to pay attention to their money and figure out how to make it work for them!


#26

The fact that your money can literally work for you is amazing. And a great reminder to keep saving and investing so each dollar is like a little employee!


#27

Holy moly! It’s so true.

I’ve heard people say things similar to this, but not exactly like this.
That is really something to think about and a great motivator too!

Thanks for sharing!

I’d love to be at that point too.
Kind of tiring to be stuck in a desk job slaving away for 40+ hours a week when I could be out there doing something else (travel and creating business ventures)


#34

My ultimate why is to be able to travel to random countries and to help in the dog homes and shelters. I know there are other “worthier” causes out there but this is my passion.


#35

Wow, that’s a pretty awesome “why”.

Very “worthy”. If it’s important to you, that’s all that matters.


#36

Im going for extra super duper bonus points for shaming my dog into speaking for me…

She got a jerky out of it!


#37

Best pic ever.


#38

She didn’t seem to think so…she is now hiding in the other room. Apparently the smell of markers or the shame alone has driven her to seclusion but I SWEAR she is excited about our future road trip! :joy:


#39

For the freedom to have choices.

Thank you MissMazuma. So many steps to do to complete each & every thing. If the person who has passed had a Pacemaker then cremation is out…and it’s the terribly expensive funeral. Copies of Death Certificates but Credit Card Companies want a Original with the embossed Stamp. $30 for each one. . Banks do not want to help someone in this situation either. What I’ve learned is to prepay my own funeral, have a health care proxy made out and choose wisely.

I know now, no one can die with out great arrangements made in advance.
