« Q Up Your Dreams: Quotes to Get you Daring and Dreaming | Main | Pivot 2.0: Dream Big and Execute your Dreams »

March 28, 2012


I am a huge believer in using budgeting as a tool to set priorities, both in businesses and families. It's one thing to say you support something, and another to assign a dollar value to that support. And how liberating and empowering is it to set aside funds (in any amount) for your own personal dream?! Kudos to you, both for getting your financial house in order & sharing your experiences with us.

My husband and I have been discussing this all at length recently. This post was certainly timely. Better for us to get a firm grasp on our financial goals at 31 and 32 than later.

Thank you again!

Susy, your candor and insight are always such a blessing. thanks for your post!

Atta girl Susy! and thank you for sharing with us.

Yay for Susy!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one all emotionally bound up in matters of money. It amazes me that the use of a tool can be interpreted in so many ways, and that we so often allow that to be the thing that dictates our circumstances. My husband and I have been working toward understanding for years. You give me hope!

My favorite part of this post is, "My emotional response was so visceral I knew I needed to look deeper."

I think it is interesting that your strong emotional response prompted introspection. All too often, when I feel strongly emotional about something I quickly retreat to my fortress of, "I'm hurting; therefore, I need to convince myself I am right to make myself feel better."

You took the brave approach.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
