Thanks for coming! If you're here, it means that you're either interested in supporting Meaningful Money - or you accidentally clicked on the wrong link! If you're here to learn more about how you can support Meaningful Money, I thank you!

Meaningful Money exists because of the support of people like you. Unlike many personal finance blogs, I will not run ads on this site or related newsletter. This isn't simply because I think ads are gross. It's deeper than that. I believe the ad model is responsible for much of the decisiveness we see today. The ad model leads to clickbait, false information, and other tricks designed to steal attention. Another model I refuse to implement is affiliate marketing, where authors are paid to sell you products and services.

I prefer to fund Meaningful Money through support directly from readers. If you'd like to help keep Meaningful Money ad-free, there are seven great ways to help.

  1. Spread the word. A simple and free way to help is to spread the word if you think there's a word to spread. Support Meaningful Money by telling your friends and family about the site and sharing Meaningful Money content on social media.

  2. Subscribe. Subscribing to Meaningful Money Memo is easier than remembering to check back for new articles. Subscribing means that I'll send you a notification each week when new essays are published.

  3. Hire Me. There are several ways to hire me to help you (or your clients) get more in touch with the interior side of money.

    1. Courses. ​There are several online courses I've created to help you improve your relationship with money.

    2. Coaching. Work one-on-one to understand your money story, your financial purpose, and create financial systems to help you live a life of meaning.

    3. Speaking. Hire me to speak at your next event.

    4. White-Labeled Newsletter (for advisors). License the Meaningful Money content for use with your clients and prospects.

    5. Masterclasses. Take a deep dive into topics related to meaning, purpose, financial psychology, and mindfulness.

    6. Continuing Education Webinars (for advisors). Learn more about the psychology of financial planning and earn CE credit.

  4. Make a small monthly pledge. Patreon is a service that allows people to support creators with monthly contributions.

  5. Make a one-time donation. If you prefer not to contribute monthly, a single donation works.

  6. Check out the store. Buy personal values cards, prints, calendars, or anything else that's there (and send a note if something's not there that should be). If there's a sketch you like that's not there, let me know, and I can create it. If you have an idea for a sketch, run it by me.

  7. Suggest ways to make the site better. Let me know what could be done better, or differently. It will help make the site better for everyone.

Thank you for reading and for your support.
