WHAT IS THIS SITE ALL ABOUT?

I created Meaningful Money to help people make smart decisions with their money. And yet I learned it's much bigger than that. I help people make smart decisions with their life and learn that money is a tool, never a goal.

WHAT'S UP WITH ALL THESE STICK-FIGURE DRAWINGS?

I know what you're thinking - which 4th grader drew these pictures? These drawings aren't something many people would consider art. And yet, I've found that simple drawings are a great way to connect with people and break down complex ideas into easy-to-understand images.

If you are interested in them, you license the content for use with your clients. You can also check out the store to see if there are pieces of "art" that you would like to have.

WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT MYSELF?

Self-discovery is one of the best things we can do for ourselves. I have several quizzes and assessments that help you understand more about who you are and how to relate to various psychological topics. You can check those out here.

WHERE CAN I FOLLOW YOU?

If you are a user of social media, you can follow me on most sites. You should know, however, I write a weekly essay and then publish bits of that content out to various social media channels. There are very few times that you will see something on social media that you haven't seen in my weekly essay (with the exception of YouTube, where I turn each weekly post into a short presentation).

You can follow me on these social channels:

YouTube | Instagram | Twitter | Facebook | LinkedIn | TikTok
