You have probably heard the cliche phrase of what gets you “here” won’t get you “there.” You have worked hard writing papers, spent countless hours in front of a screen acquiring a new language that helps you communicate with machines, and running five to six digits in student loans so you can reach your dreams of graduating school. Then you start the full-time job of looking for a company that values what you can offer. Hopefully, you landed in a company that appreciates the unique you. With hard work and a bit of luck, you may have landed in a company that offers you great income and employee perks, which gives you a great sense of belonging and achievement. Congratulations!
If you are like me, you may still have some student loans to pay. Plus you may have a car payment, a mortgage, and a family to feed. At the end of the month, you may see your discretionary funds reduced to five or ten percent. If you are not a homeowner, you wonder if you would ever be able to afford one. If you want a family, you may have second thoughts about having children. Living in the Bay Area should not be equivalent to a lack of joy and forgone dreams.
Luckily, money is not just about numbers but about the lifestyle we choose to live. Join me to talk about some steps you can take to reach a healthier relationship with your finances without sacrificing what really matters to you.
