When I introduced The Savvy Life in March of 2004, it was a quarterly print publication (titled Budget Savvy). My goal was to create a lifestyle magazine for women who want to:
  • Be financially responsible by spending less than they make.
  • Turn their homes into their own personal sanctuaries by decluttering and implementing quick and easy housekeeping routines.
  • Create a wardrobe filled only with clothes they love.
  • Make grocery shopping and cooking easier.
  • Enjoy their time off even more because they planned for it and know they can afford it.
  • Save for and achieve all of their big and small financial goals.
Over the next nine and a half years, The Savvy Life transitioned from that print publication into a day-to-day financial education company. 
 
It started when we shifted from a print publication to an online magazine. As our audience grew, I began getting asked to do speaking engagements and teach classes on savvy money habits as well as smart spending around the Home, Food, Wardrobe, Beauty, Travel and Entertainment.   
 
Another aspect of The Savvy Life that evolved was working one-on-one with individuals and families to help them plug their financial leaks and streamline their spending. In fact, this has become one of my favorite features of the company. In addition to being able to work with wonderful people across the U.S. to help them get back in control of their money, it helps me as a personal finance writer and speaker as I gain an even better understanding of the money issues that are most prevalent with individuals and family.    
 
One of the biggest changes came in 2011 when I began working with financial advisors across the U.S. doing speaking engagements as well as working one-on-one with their clients to help them find more money for their investments. 
 
Ultimately, my goal for The Savvy Life is to be a resource for purposeful spending. Money should be enjoyed and by learning how to build a strong financial foundation and spending smart, you give yourself the opportunity to do the things you want to do, buy the things you want to by and visit the places you want to visit.  
 
Over the next six to eight weeks, we are transitioning The Savvy Life website to better reflect our status as a day-to-day financial education company.
 
Our goal is to offer even more resources to help you begin and sustain your own savvy life. 
 
Those resources will include:   
  • Additional Savvy Starter KitsThe Savvy Kitchen Starter Kit is coming soon.
  • Additional Books – Once the new website is launched we will begin working on the manuscript for The Savvy Kitchen to be published in 2014. 
  • Online Classes – All the savvy classes will be available for you to take from the comfort of your home. 
  • More Coaching Programs – One-on-one help for every budget.
Although the new website design is still in the works, we are going to start our metamorphosis with our newsletter.  Beginning next week, upcoming newsletters will offer:
  • To Do’s – weekly suggestions for plugging your financial leaks and managing the various areas of your life.
  • Savvy Shopping – tips and resources for taking advantage of seasonal sales.
  • Habits – the introduction of savvy habits and routines and suggestions for how to make them stick.
  • Challenges – Fun challenges focused on all the different aspects of savvy living.
If you have not yet subscribed to the newsletter, you can do so now by signing up in the blue box on the left side of the home page.   
 
I am very excited about unveiling these new resources for you and look forward to the next nine and a half years of The Savvy Life!
