Welcome to “Veronica’s Budget”. I am Veronica, married and mother of two and this is my blog. This is where i write about all that is finances, behavior, habits, goals, thoughts and dreams – all from my personal point of view.
I started this blog in January 2014. At that point I had been working in the field of finances for close to a decade but realized that I was not happy with how my life was playing out professionally. I was not happy with the 3 hours daily commute to work, about the stress of it all or about working for someone who wasn’t really appreciative. So I decided that I that I needed to make a change, try something else – to do it differently.
I quit my regular 8-5 job and have since been working on my own. It has taken some time to “find myself”, but in the past year I have realized that doing what I also did, back when I worked for someone else, is what I so best and what I most enjoy doing. So I am back to being a bookkeeper, this time independently, while I also teach personal finances. The journey has and is not easy, but still; so worth it!
The blog is called “Veronica’s Budget” because the budget is an important part of the way we live. With the budget our spending has gone down and become more adapted to our needs. It allows us to be able to earn less money and gain more time. The budget is not just connected to our life but is connected to all areas of our lives. By being focused, effective and creative we can continue on without making compromises on our quality of life. The freedom comes with more time to do the things we truly love doing!
What I have learned along the way is that our behavior, habits and perception has a lot to do with the way we behave and influences us more than we are aware of, for example in the way we spend our money or our time. What I try to do here, on the blog, is share my thoughts on exactly those behaviors with the hope that my experience and point of view will add to someone else’s.
So welcome! I hope you will enjoy reading along with me and hopefully I will be able to give you inspiration, ideas and tools. If you want to know more, you are very welcome to contact me here.
