21 Days to Change Your Financial Life with the #MoneyLoveChallenge



Ever since I had the baby I cannot seem to find anything I can tolerate watching other than Modern Family or Fixer Upper.

I can’t stand anything with violence, anything disturbing, anything scary, or anything depressing. So that cuts out almost everything on TV.

I promised Mike I wouldn’t watch the new episodes of Modern Family or Fixer Upper without him while he’s away this weekend, though.

Feeling the need to decompress after a day with an unusually fussy baby (she’s going through a phase), I stumbled upon a treasure trove of DVR’d Super Soul Sunday episodes. Jackpot!

Uplifting – check!
Useful – check!
Positive – check!

So, I was sitting listening to Oprah interview Gretchen Rubin, whom I adore. They were talking about Gretchen’s newest book, Better Than Before.

This quote struck me:

“When you change your habits, you change your life.” ~Gretchen Rubin {Tweet it.}



Our lives are, in fact, made up of the tiny little things we do every single day. Those little actions, even if seemingly insignificant, create our reality.

And if we want to change our reality, we have to change those little things we do every day.

As I sat and listened to Gretchen talk to Oprah about the year she spent taking small actions every day for a year in an incredibly systematic way in order to create more happiness in her life, I though about how you could apply that very same format to anything you wanted more of in your life.

And no matter how “successfully” you followed your plan, you would inevitably see improvements in whichever area of your life you chose to focus on. Because what we put our attention on grows.

While I’m not ready to take on an entire year project like Gretchen, I am ready to take on 21 days.

You may have heard that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. Turns out this is misquoted a lot, and what studies actually show is that it takes a minimum of 21 days to form a new habit.

So why not keep it simple and do the minimum required to potentially form a new habit?

Can’t hurt. Would likely help.

That’s where the #MoneyLoveChallenge comes in.

Join me for 21 days, the minimum amount of time it takes to form a new habit, and see what happens.

We’re going to spend 21 days doing something small that doesn’t take much time in order to put loving, positive attention on our money.

The challenge starts tomorrow, January 14th. It’s free.

All you have to do to join us is opt in HERE.

You’ll get instructions to participate via email when you opt in. It’s super simple, though:

    1. Join the #MoneyLoveChallenge.


    1. Do the small, loving action towards your money every day.


    1. Share it on social media using #MoneyLoveChallenge.


    1. Enjoy the inevitable improvement of your financial life that comes from shining your love on it.


When you share your completed challenges on social media, you’re also automatically entered to win our giveaway of inspiring, #MoneyLove-friendly books and products that will go out to one blessed challenge participant each day.

Join me in changing habits of lack, fear, and worry around money into those of abundance, love, and gratitude.

21 days was enough to make lasting, significant change in many of our 14,000 participants’ lives last year. I know it will be enough for you, too.

Join the #MoneyLoveChallenge.

The #MoneyLoveChallenge is back!

In early January last year Mike and I thought: “Wouldn’t it be cool to get a bunch of people on the interwebs together to take daily loving steps towards their money for a specific, focused time period?” I’ve seen time and time again how what we put our attention on grows. And this includes our…

The Ultimate High

  This week’s blog babysitter saved my life. I met her when I was in a total financial fog, charging everything on my credit cards and feeling too petrified to look at the truth. I was in debt. I was living in an apartment my mother owned. I was ashamed. Reading Barbara Stanny’s books and…

The Closest Thing to Magic That I Know How to Teach

Our neighbor spied us working up a sweat, hands and feet covered in dirt, and inquired what we were up to with suspicion. Of course we weren’t dragging a dead body around our yard, it just looked like that. We were actually just dragging a giant pile of dirt that was wrapped up in a…

Is what you’re doing now taking you where you want to go?

My mom told me that when she was graduating from college she didn’t know what she wanted to do next. Her dad said to her: “Christy, why not medical school? At the end of four years you might as well have an M.D. at the end of your name.” And so she went to medical…
