Preventing Pro-cats-itination

Hello lovely backers!  I'm spending the weekend finishing design and editing for Get Your Money Together workbook, and in an effort to keep myself accountable, I thought I'd let you know that I'm liveblogging my work over on my personal website at anomalily.net

So stop by the liveblog anytime this weekend, and prod me if I haven't updated recently with progress. I want to make sure your ebooks are in your paws by 12/31!

We aren't kitten about purrsonal finance around here

Report from the Purrsonal Finance HQ

I wanted to give you lovely kickstarter backers an update!

First off, here are three goodies for your new year to download - a mini-zine I did about budgeting, my budgeting software reviews, and an expense tracker. 

We're at about 91.5% complete right now for the GYMT workbook. All that's left is finishing up some design work, having our copyediting kittens make sure all the I's are crossed and T's are dotted*, dusting everything with some glitter, and sending off to our printer! 

*see why I need a copy-editor?

I plan to have e-books in your inboxes by the end of this month! Here's our timeline:

Everyone who backed at the workbook + course level should have received their code to get started with Get Your Money Together Bootcamp online last month.  If you're kicking yourself for not joining to get access to all the videos immediately, you can use the code HALFOFF2018 and get a 50% discount through tomorrow night for the course.


What can you do while you're waiting?

Hope you are doing purr-fectly! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!

A very quick reminder - if you'd like to give a certificate as a holiday gift to someone, this evening (12/13) is your last chance to get a paper mailed certificate.  

If your gift-ee is outside the US or is celebrating Hannukah this week, you can opt for an emailed certificate.

If you backed at the Bootcamp + Book levels, the certificate will contain a code for Get Your Money Together Bootcamp online, to be used immediately! The printed book will follow in April.

For kittens of all holiday purr-suasions!

Update from the Purr-sonal finance HQ (with pictures!)
about 1 year ago – Fri, Dec 08, 2017 at 06:25:11 PM

Hello purr-fect backers!

It's been 20 days since the kickstarter wrapped up, and I wanted to give y'all an update on Get Your Money Together workbook!  

Working together with illustrators Lucy Bellwood & Fiona W., I'm hard at work to bring fiscally responsible cats to your workbooks. Currently we're on track to get you your ebooks by the end of January. Print books + stickers will follow in early April.

Here is a small preview of some of the felines engaged in money meow-nagement:


Question: I want to give a certificate as a holiday gift to someone. How can I get one?

Just email me and I'll send out a certificate this week!

Question: I am eager to get started on my money management before late January! How can I get going?

Answer: If you backed at a level to get access to Get Your Money Together Bootcamp, you'll be receiving an email invitation to get started with the videos + worksheets this week. That way you can get going before the book arrives!

If you backed at any level, you'll receive a digital "2018 money goals" mini-workbook on January 1st, to help you figure out your top money resolutions for next year. I'll be doing 2 livestreams to help you tackle finding those goals.

And of course, you can always binge on Oh My Dollar! episodes anytime.

Question: I backed Pay It Fur-ward - how do those books get to deserving folks?

Answer: Thanks to your generous support, I'm able to work with a few local non-profits to deliver in-person financial education to low-income young adults - and every single student will receive a workbook of their own! A few of the nonprofits I have confirmed are College PossibleNew Avenues for Youth, and Central City Concern.

If you know an Oregon non-profit that serves low-income folks that would like some fun financial literacy education, please let me know! I'm still actively looking for non-profit partners. 

Come February 2018, I will be opening applications for all US non-profits to receive a (free to them) shipment of books + a guide to facilitating their own money workshops for their clients. If you might be interested, give me a ping!

If you backed Pay It Fur-ward, you'll receive a handwritten thank you note from the person who received a book after our workshops (likely sometime in June 2018)! 

With glitter + budgets + cats,
