Hi, I’m Lisa and this is my blog about personal finance, simple living, and balancing work and home life.

Last year, after 16 years in an accounting position with a manufacturing company, I quit my job as a financial analyst to help my husband run his business.  It’s something we planned for a long time, budgeting, saving, and paying off debt. Along the way we cultivated a simple living lifestyle that has become the main theme throughout our lives.

I started this blog because I want to share our story with others, the struggles we’ve had, what we did financially to make it possible, how we are making it work and how we’ve learned to bring balance into our lives through our finances, and a healthy work-life balance. My goal is to keep the advice simple and easy to follow and present quick steps you can take that leaves more time for you to enjoy your family. I want to encourage others to bring balance into their lives through simple living and simplifying their financial lives.

I’m looking forward to this new relationship and I hope you follow along and learn something new along the way!
