Why We Do What We Do
The idea for She Makes Cents came after viewing the MTV documentary, TRUE LIFE: I Can No Longer Afford My Lifestyle. The documentary followed 20 somethings as they enter the work force, spent money as if job security was a permanent thing, and hit rock bottom after (for whatever reason) they were no longer able to afford the lifestyle that their jobs allowed them to have. This forced me to wonder, how would the 20 somethings from MTV and everyone else with similar circumstances lives be different if they made different financial choices? While the documentary birthed the idea for this site, the transformation from idea to reality came from the result of a series of conversations between friends trying to figure out how I accomplished a certain level of financial empowerment on an almost invisible budget. These conversations eventually led to weekly discussions on subjects such as credit scores, buying property, and eliminating credit card debt. Instead of brainstorming with each other, we here at She Makes Cents decided to invite readers like you into our financial conversations.
inform and inspire ways to use your “cents” to live a fabulous life.
