All About the Benjamins

They say “money is a necessary evil.” I say it’s just necessary. They say “money can’t buy happiness.” I say it most surely can!

Show Me the Money

Recently going from a soul-sucking, dead-end job to a career I loved was almost payment enough. Of course, now earning a salary three times that of before has changed my life. I’m, by no means, boasting about the funds. What I am saying is that, in the first month of my new role, I was able to travel, make a few a purchases (most needed, some frivolous), and finally open savings and retirement accounts for the first time ever.

Is every day now milk and honey? Of course not. But I have to tell you, being in a new tax bracket (and out of paycheck-to-paycheck living) has calmed my nerves, improved my mood, and strengthened my personal and professional relationships.

So while money may not be able to “buy” happiness, there is no doubt that increased cash flow can have a profound impact on people’s lives. We need to stop pretending it’s not important.
