I am Julie Mayfield, the creator and author of The Family CEO. I started this blog in 2006, after I hired myself to make the most of my family’s finances by paying off debt and building our savings. I’m passionate about personal finance, and as the bookkeeper for two small family businesses and the person who manages our family’s finances, I think about it a lot. A lot.
Topics I cover here include making extra money, paying off debt, paying for college, and saving and investing. And to help us in those goals (and because I hate to budget) I started using a found money strategy so I talk a lot about that too.
But money is about more than just money; it’s about life. So all this talk about money is always done with creating an authentic, intentional life in mind.
In addition to The Family CEO, you will find my writing at U.S. News & World Report, where my daughter and I have blogged about college, and on my lifestyle blog, Creating This Life. We can also connect in the following ways:
