A Family CEO Life Update


About the Blog, Kids and Money

Hello Again


About the Blog

Tap, tap, tap…is this thing on? Is anyone still out there? It’s been nearly two years since I’ve written at The Family CEO, but recently I’ve felt compelled to check back in.

2014 Update


About the Blog

I always hate it when bloggers who have gone MIA start their posts with I’m so sorry I’ve been gone so long… But, really, I’m so sorry I’ve been gone so long. The truth is that I’ve been having so much fun over at Creating This Life that I’ve been a little preoccupied. After years of blogging […]

2006 Through Today: A Family CEO Timeline


About the Blog

When I started The Family CEO back in 2006 I was focused on slashing expenses, making extra money, and paying off our debt.
