Advice from a Middle-Aged, Former Over-Achiever
Next week I will be attending my very first personal finance conference.
This is important for two reasons. First, because I will be moving one step closer to my dream. Getting my finances in order. Solidifying my future. Expanding my education by learning more about investing, saving and creating smart financial goals.
The second reason is because I will be taking this excursion entirely on my own. No friends or family to lean on. Navigating an airport, ground transportation, and a ginormous resort hotel. By. Myself.
To those of you who actually know me, your jaws have probably dropped to the floor by now. Because I barely leave the house, much less travel across the country.
I’m a remote worker, faithful Amazon Prime member and loyal user of Peapod grocery delivery service. I prefer to have things come to me.
More importantly, I prefer not to go out in public. At least not very often.
So the fact that I’m stepping out into the “real world” and leaning into my discomfort, is extremely surprising to those I know.
