There is normally so much stress around money that I thought this was a good time to focus on the money parts of our lives we are thankful for. An exercise I do in my SIMPLY MONEY course is to state your money strength such as “I am great at checking my balances online “ or “I am great at saving money automatically”. Even if you think you are “terrible about everything money”, chances are there is something you are good at. Which one fits your life?

Please share with me your thanks if it wasn’t on this list. Before I share my money thanks, I am incredibly thankful that I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful healthy fun children. I am super thankful that I have a business that I am passionate about and get to meet very interesting and fulfilling clients. I am thankful that I am on top of my investments, keep my investing fees super low and did not lose that much money in 2008 because I was properly diversified.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
