Spare Change is a place for people choosing their own definitions of freedom and talking frankly about how they afford it.
After exploring a few career options but never really landing on the right fit, I focused on making a living as a writer. But how?
I learned how to identify my unique skills and desires, then match them with something the world needs. I started a freelance writing side hustle that doubled my income and made it possible to work on projects I actually care about. I learned how to align my money with my values.
And it changed everything.
Maybe you’re still on your way “there,” and your definition of “there” is dynamic. If so, this is perfect. In fact, I believe that being dynamic is your birthright.
And you don’t have to have it all figured out to begin.
