Springing into the season with a full Money Bag!
I am not sure what is more shocking, that it is finally reaching 70 degrees in Minnesota or I am updating my blog!
The last couple of months have been stressful. My goal was to have the book to the editor by March 1st, but between burnout, writers block, two ski weekends, and tax season, that was a lofty goal. Gratefully, all problems have passed and I am ready! The book is looking good and I am excited in the direction that it is going team task management app. My draft actually looks like a real manuscript with an introduction, table of contents and organized chapters with headings! I have cut chapters out, moved them around, revamped and polished. I still have to rework four chapters dealing with debit/credit cards and marketing.
Though it appears that I have been on hiatus, things have been progressing. Aaron Fruit has been working on my logo and we are close to the finished look and picking a color palette. Also, I have been researching money traditions and have to laugh because when I search via Google® I only find “witchcraft type spells for money.” Thankfully, I have found a couple of books to give me some ideas, but neither of them touches money with a ten foot pole, not even the Tooth Fairy! I also have reached back into my childhood, playing some board games to make sure that I still think they do a good job in teaching money. I have also
been exploring some new games to see if they will work for the book.
In the spirit of spring time, make sure to plant a tree, flower, or some vegetables with your child. This is a great way to begin working on delayed gratification. Explain to your kids that planting this special tree, flower, or vegetable plant is similar to money. Money grows slowly and you have to nurture and make sure it is safe. If you feed it (save more) it will grow beyond your expectations and provide you wonderful flowers, a bountiful harvest, or shade for your nurturing and patience.
