About Goodbye to Broke
Goodbye to Broke is a resource to help you overcome your financial roadblocks and use money to create the life you want — but what does that even mean?
Who is this Megan chick and why should I listen to her?
I’m a 20-something who used to accept being “broke” as a fact of life. I believed time and charity were more important than making money and that the three just couldn’t coincide.
I struggled with conflicting feelings towards money for years. On the one hand, I wanted to make as much as possible to help take care of my parents and have the financial freedom to go on vacation every now and then. On the other hand, I wanted to do meaningful, fulfilling work that made a positive difference in people’s lives.
But I felt like the two were mutually exclusive — you can’t be a good person who makes a positive impact on the world, has time for her family, and make a lot of money…can you?
(Wise words of Jen Sincero.)
Imagine how incredibly awesome the world would be if there was more money in the hands of kind, decent human beings. We need more Oprahs and Bill Gates in the world — generous do-gooders with bottomless pockets and a willingness to spread the love.
My swift kick in the pants came when I realized that I barely had the time or the money to take care of myself. How the hell was I supposed to help anyone else when I could hardly afford my own rent?
I had to choose a side — either stay broke and helpless forever, constantly worried about bills and anticipating the next time my car decided to go on the fritz, or figure out how to create the life I wanted in a way that aligned with my goals and values.
We all have a choice to make: either we can ignore that fact and allow money to dictate our lives, or we can embrace it and use money as a tool to create a better life. For us. For our families. For our communities and (dare I say it) maybe even for the world.
Once I realized this, my entire mindset shifted. I went from being broken-spirited and stressed, working three to four part-time and freelance jobs to scrape together a living, to building a business that fulfills me both financially and spiritually.
When I say Goodbye to Broke I don’t just mean broke in the physical sense, like not having money in the bank.
There are plenty of other sites out there that can teach you how to make and save more money. I want to take you beyond budgeting and paying off debt.
I’m talking about the spirit of being broke. You know, those thoughts of I can’t afford it… I don’t know how to make more money… I don’t deserve to make more money…
Numbers are easy. When it comes to mastering your money, the best way to ensure long-term success is to master your mindset.
My goal is to teach you both (numbers and mindset) so you can use money intentionally to live a more meaningful and purpose-driven life.
