Why a Boodle Blog?

Why a Boodle Blog? This is a place I hope you’ll use to post your own stories and ideas about money. Please share the good, the bad and the ugly, silly and the serious.

I’m passionate about the idea that we need to share our money stories.  Whether they are stories about family, work, or community interactions with money, we need to get them out. It is through our stories that money comes to be understood. Hearing each other’s money stories taps into how we connect, how we act, and what our motivations are.  If we are ever to change our stories, it will happen when we begin to see what is behind the economic choices we make.

You can make a difference by sharing your stories here.  Do you have a story about career, inheritance, family, good and bad deeds, rags to riches and riches to rags, or any number of other tales around money? Bring it to Boodle.

This Blog is a place to object to what I’m saying, or ask me for clarification. It’s a forum

for us all to share what we know or want to know about how to change our money world. Please feel free to post resources, links, lyrics, jokes, and whatever else is on your money mind. You need not limit yourselves to responding to the details of my posts. Let’s boodle!


  • I am an artist. Money is inspiration. If I am inspired I can create anything, even money. I have been involved with non-profit art organizations for many years we have done the incredible. The financial climate has shifted. There is no longer the funding that once was. To come up with a new model interests me, this is essentially a creative process. By reaching out and organizing, we are pooling our inspiration. As functioning organizations we have the practical administration in place to back up our plans.

    The other side of the coin is I have been dealing with Estate issues. This business of insuring that no one takes advantage of you is very costly, the policies have policies and the redundancy is incredibly consumeristic and by and large in my opinion unnecessary. We all know consumerism on all levels is out of hand: environmentally, health wise, politically, economically, etc.
    It has helped me to become proactive, to extend a hand be responsive in the areas in which I have interest Meanwhile I can build relationships with others that help me put the world back in balance. To change the little things is inspiring, inspiration is gold.

  • This surely makes perfect sense!
