Help me Celebrate 41!
For my 41st Birthday coming up in October, I'm raising money for Hair We Share, to help cover the cost of turning my hair (and other donated hair) into wigs for those in need.
Give $41 (or whatever you can donate) in honor of my 41st birthday coming up in October.

(Personal & Professional)
Who is our silence around money actually serving?
I believe it’s beyond time we have more honest, open conversations about the role money plays, and, to be more precise, the role financial (in)stability and (in)security plays in our ability to live the creative lives we crave.
The app and books below have helped me gain that clarity and they might help you too. Some of them tackle personal financial matters while others focus in on financial issues specific to authors.

Li Yun's Review
Ignore the meh title -- this book is the personal finance 101 you need in your life.
I believe that before you can get a handle on your professional finances, it is key to get a handle on your *personal* finances.
I Will Teach You To Be Rich was transformative for my family because the 6-week program was accessible and actionable.
We made key changes based on Sethi's advice, and we finally wrapped our heads around our current financial circumstances, financial plans, and financial future.
Getting our personal finances under control gave me the mental space to turn my attention to my writing and writing-related finances.
