My Big Week: Speaking, PlanetSmart Finance Fest, and the Catzebo

My Big Week

You ever have one of those weeks where all the anticipation builds up to a crescendo of excitement and nerves? Well, that's exactly where I find myself right now. But this isn't just any ordinary week. No, this is my Big Week, with not just one, but two major events on the horizon.

First up, I've got my speaking engagement at California State University in San Bernardino. I've been hustling for months, reaching out to college leaders across California, Oregon, and Washington, spreading the word about my talk, From Ramen To Riches: A Student's Guide to an Awesome Financial Life. I've prepped and primed, and yes, I'll admit, there's a flutter of nerves mixed in with the excitement. But you know what they say, that nervous energy is just the fuel we need to push ourselves beyond our comfort zones and onto new horizons.

Speaking of horizons, my second big event is the PlanetSmart Finance Fest, set to launch on Earth Day, April 22nd. This has been a labor of love, months in the making. From reaching out to potential speakers to uncovering a whole community of eco-conscious financial wizards, it's been a journey. And now, as the launch date approaches, I'm laser-focused on spreading the word. Have you registered yet?

On the Home Front

Now, let's talk about some personal victories. A few weeks back, I upgraded to a new site in my RV community, and let me tell you, it's been a game-changer. Gone are the days of a bare-bones "starter site." Now, I've got pavers and a gazebo. And that gazebo? Well, it's in the process of becoming a catzebo - a screened-in paradise for Izzy and Coco, complete with climbing structures and catwalks. Throw in some new patio furniture, and suddenly, my little corner of the world feels like home.

Living in an RV was always about getting closer to nature, and this catzebo is the cherry on top. Come mid-June, I'll be hitting the road again, but knowing I've got this cozy oasis waiting for me upon my return in the fall? That's pure bliss.

Will you Share the News?

Now, I need your help to make the PlanetSmart Finance Fest a roaring success. It's a FREE event designed for folks who want to build wealth while making a positive impact on the planet. So, spread the word far and wide! If you know someone who'd be interested, please, share the news. Your support means the world to me.

A weekly newsletter from Dr. Brenda, Money Coach Cons, Catnip Cabana, and Commencements Dodging a $2500 Con Game Last autumn, I rolled my rig into a nearby RV service department for a routine oil change and a thorough once-over. What ensued was a plot twist I hadn't seen coming. The service team delivered the dreaded news: my brake pads were apparently hanging on for dear life, with percentages that made my heart skip a beatβ€”10% and 30%. Cue the alarms. But something didn't sit right. Sure,...

A weekly newsletter from Dr. Brenda, Money Coach In Memory of a Friend I Never Met Recently, I was hit with unexpected news on Facebook. It was a reminder of how the digital world connects us in ways we sometimes overlook. Karin, a friend I had met through one of the RVing women groups, had passed away. Though we had never met face-to-face, her presence was deeply felt in my online community. Karin had a knack for appearing at just the right moment, offering words of encouragement and support...
