My name is Kristen and I am the creator of Green is Good Cents.
Green is Good Cents teaches people how to live their best financial life by inspiring the creation of SMART money goals that lead to financial independence.
Green is Good Cents helps people recognize the impact our every day choices have on our lives.
In today’s world we are constantly bombarded with information and choices. Having the ability to choose is a gift but, with every decision there is an opportunity cost.
Will you buy those Christian Louboutin shoes you have ALWAYS wanted or will you take your family on vacation?
Will you go on vacation with your family or pay off your debt?
Every choice has consequences that set us up for financial well-being or financial hardship.
Financial independence is having the ability to choose what you do with your time irrespective of your job.
