Hello! Welcome to The Money Coach (dot com!) My name is Nanci Murdock and this website has been a dream of mine for several years now. I’ve taken a few detours along the way to get it started, but am here now (and just in time for RRSP season!).
This is my inaugral post and so it is hard to send you anywhere on the site. If you want to know more about me: Nanci K. Murdock, CFA <– you can just click that link.
There are so many issues around money and I would like to use this website to explore and discuss those issues as a community.
On a practical level, I will be providing many, many posts on the benefits of savings, good credit, investments, and all that good stuff pertaining to money management. Don’t worry! It is not going to be scary or all technical. Just down to earth simple advice about how to get control of your financial life so it does not control you.
And if you are looking for ideas on saving or frugality, you’ve unfortunately come to the wrong place. While I do not believe in waste or spending money for the wrong reasons, I also do not believe at all in saving for the sake of saving. Money is like energy – it needs to be in constant motion and hoarding it is just bad news. (containing it wisely for the future is smart, but much more on that later..)
If you are looking to skip that daily latte, add water to stretch your dish soap, or reuse dryer sheets, there are plenty of websites out there but it won’t be this one.
On another level, I am very excited to talk about money and how our core beliefs (stuff from childhood) influence how much we have, how we spend, and whether money is a positive or a negative in our lives. I have been poor; I have been wealthy, and now I am somewhere in the middle. Much to write about on these issues, and I hope you will join me in the discussion.
So welcome! If you have the time, please introduce yourself in the comment section.
All the best,
