How to Negotiate Anything… Pretty Much

Five years ago Jordan’s MBA program was headed to Russia and I was completely jealous. I’d never been. The way his work schedule fell, he was able to go 10 days early to travel and explore. I desperately wanted to go and we started sketching out what a trip would look...

March Financial Goals Update: How I Make More Money

When Jordan and I sat down to make our goals for 2018, we knew this would be a big year. “Make more money” isn’t a unique goal but the goal was intrinsic to enabling our live bigger goals. We were expecting our first child in March, we are saving up to build a home on...

Make the Pay Gap Personal

Last week Jordan and I were thrilled to welcome little Henry Ellis into our family. He’s our first child and well, let’s just say I had no idea what to expect. These last 10 days have been a whirlwind and after an extended stay in a hospital room that costs more than...

Why We Chose The Nevada 529 Plan and How Much We’re Saving

I’ve written a lot about opening a 529 plan this year because Jordan and I are expecting our first child (or, depending on when I publish this, our first child might already be here. Weird.) Though I laid out the basics of a 529 plan in this video and post, the...

What is a 529 Plan?

With our first child on the way, I wanted to be sure that we had our bases covered when it came to college savings. It's a big deal (and an even bigger expense!) and I really didn't want to make the wrong decision. After combing through way too much information on 529...

If you've ever wondered who these people are that sell their things on Amazon and become rich in the process, I'm here with a reality check: it's really, really hard to make money selling things in this competitive marketplace. While I started this little side hustle...

How I Started My Side Hustle: The Step By Step Guide

Way back in 2015 I was in a miserable job that I hated. I was on a path that wasn’t right for me. I needed out, and quickly. I needed a side hustle. Now I know that, thankfully, not everyone hates their job. But hating your job isn’t the only reason to start a side...

Personal Capital Tutorial and Review

I make it no secret that I’m a little disorganized with my money. Or, I should say I was disorganized before I put some systems in place to help me not be such a mess. (You can see the full post here and get the guide here on how Jordan and I organize our money) I’ve...

January Book Review: What If It Does Work Out?

Every year I make the vague resolve to read more. Then halfway through the year, I realize I’ve only picked up a handful of books, most of which constitute beach reads. I’m not knocking beach reads, we need them. But there is also something important about reading...

The Pocket Guide To Investing

A few months ago I was helping a friend set up her investment account. As I was walking her through her options, I realized that the words coming out of my mouth sounded...obnoxious. “You’ll want to make sure you have proper diversification. What’s your risk...

A Negotiation Mistake That Costs More Than $1 million

Last year, when putting together my negotiation course and teaching workshops, I included a stat about how a small difference in salary could add up to over $1 million in lost earnings over the course of a career. Specifically, how a $7,000 salary difference could add...

The Best Way to Invest Money for the Short and Mid-Term

Let’s be honest: saving for an emergency fund or for retirement can be a bit, well, boring. Maybe you don’t think so but I’m totally unenthused by those two (very important) things. But the short-term and mid-term goals? That’s where I think the fun is. Maybe it’s...
