Welcome to The Money Pixie Blog!

You’ll find tips on paying off your debt, saving money, making extra money and working from home.

For most of us, unless we win the lottery, we need to work for a living, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could work for ourselves and love what we do?

This blog will help you with that…

Also, I’ve always felt that there are two ways to have more money. It’s pretty obvious, but it comes down to making more money and spending less money. With that in mind, I’ll also be sharing lots of tips on how to live on less and still love your life.

For me personally,  I’ve gone through times in my life when I had no money – for example when I went back to college at the age of 25 – and other times when I was pretty comfortable.

During both of those times, I’ve discovered just how easy it is to end up in debt and spend more than you should. I’ve also discovered how to save money and pay off that debt!

I’ve also come to realize that I just totally hate working for someone else. I’ll never forget how I felt after I finished college and got my first big job at a major international bank. I remember getting up and leaving the house – which I hate as I am NOT a morning person – and seeing people sitting on their front porches drinking their coffee or working in their gardens.

I can’t tell you the jealousy I felt and, as much as I hate to admit it, the resentment. Once at work, I could feel the walls closing in on me. Sure, I was doing well at the bank, and I had been promoted four times in three years, but I didn’t care.

It felt like the walls were closing in a little more each day. I knew that if I continued working in the corporate world, it would one day kill me. Maybe not physically, but certainly mentally and emotionally.

I gave it some thought and I knew I had to make a change. I figured I had two options. I could continue on at the bank and continue up the corporate ladder. This would mean a bigger paycheck, more money in the bank, a nicer car, and a bigger home.

OR…

I could quit my job and start working for myself. This would mean that I would have less money, less “stuff” and my mother would want to kill me. But, it also meant I would have my freedom.

Ironically, while I was driving to work one day I heard a song on the radio. It was a Sheryl Crow song titled, “A Change Would Do You Good.” I took it as a sign. When I got to work, I gave my two weeks notice, and I never looked back.

Since then, I have worked for myself from home – sometimes successfully and sometimes not so successfully – but either way, I’ve learned a hell of a lot over the years, and now I want to share it with you.

For the last five years, I have been a freelance writer. I mostly write articles and web pages to help other business owners rank well in Google. Recently, one of my clients told me how the content I write for them has really helped their ranking.

It was the light bulb moment I needed…

I thought, why am I not doing the same for myself? So, I decided to start this blog. With it, I can help you with you learn how to make money from home like I have and how to save money and get out of debt. Truth be told, I can even make some money for myself.

This will be my first attempt at making money from affiliate sales, so yes, there will be affiliate links on my site, but I can promise you one thing. You won’t find one link to an affiliate product that I don’t love myself.

I’ll even share my affiliate journey with you, so you can learn from my mistakes and successes along the way.

So…what’s next?

I’m in the process of creating a lot of free products and checklists and resource lists, so why don’t you go ahead and sign up for my newsletter now. That way, you will be the first to receive anything new.
