About Me

I wanted to share a little about myself.

My name is Stephanie. I am a wife, mother, business owner, Girl Scout leader, substitute teacher, dance instructor, domestic goddess (so to speak)… a busy person who likes to stay, well … busy. For some reason I seem to create more things to do for myself even when I think I am maxed out. I try to plan ahead for big occasions and parties to make things less stressful when the time comes. I am working hard at keeping myself accountable to finish my crazy projects, use a menu plan, cooking from scratch, and being frugal. I love projects, writing and reading.

The reason I had for writing in a blog is partially to have my voice and ideas heard, and partially to keep my mind working, keep me accountable and to track what I’ve been doing with my time. I do not pretend to be an expert, but I have learned so much and want to share with anyone who wants to listen.

My husband and I live in California with our two children. When we met, I was a marketing manager by day and a dance instructor by night, while he had a career as a math teacher. Since our lives have evolved we have gotten involved in a couple other business ventures together in the financial industry. I love what our businesses have allowed us to do and the financial freedom it will allow us in the future. If you are curious, Jeremy has a website.

I believe there is much to be learned after the schooling years – not that I didn’t put in my time. I had a 4 year undergraduate experience working toward 2 majors before a 2 year graduate program to earn my MBA. I learn everyday from others, from the books I read, and from my children. Looking back I was so career-driven and motivated and with the birth of our son my life did a 360 – funny how kids change things.
