Remember my call out for doodled dollars and money motivation? Well, some of them are now starting to come in! And y’all are getting super creative up in here!
Check out the first one to kick off this project below. While it’s technically not what I had in mind when first thinking up this idea, it’s certainly much COOLER by far :) I’d freak out too if the Queen was giving me the evil eye! Haha… Hope you enjoy it. You can click the images to see them larger…
Slackerjo’s Insight About Money:
- I work around people who make WAY more $ than me. Many are broke.
- I live on 60% of my pay and bank the rest.
- I hope within a year to work 3 days a week & call myself “semi retired.”
- I am 45.
One of the best pieces of mail I’ve ever received :) Thanks so much, Slackerjo! You totally made my morning, I swear… freakin’ cracks me up. If anyone else wants to submit something just as awesome over, by all means please do! I’ll post up your nuggets of brilliance on here as well, and you too can be famous ;) Check out the original idea for more info…
Thanks guys, you’re bad ass.
