Boodle is a book-in-progress about how to make money work for everyone.

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.

If you’d like your money story considered for inclusion, please email it to me or join our Blog discussion.
