~~eBook coming* soon!~~

Navigating the social and economic systems that create the complex and often unfriendly world of finance, credit, and debt means finding your way around impediments. Hacking money, if you will.

This book + supporting course are focused on 10 hacks that will allow you to navigate systems in capitalism more easily. From evading shame and self-judgement, to getting out of debt and saving for your future self, there’s a new tactic for everyone to learn!

*Yes I know I’ve been saying this for a while – I’ll be real here: I accidentally wrote a 40,000 word book. THAT’S NOT AN eBOOK, THAT’S A PRINTED BOOK. So, I went back and pulled out a section to laser focus on: hacks, how to think about money, and how to deal with 10 crucial things that many people struggle with. Now I’m putting final touches on a 22,000-word book …. and preparing to bring out others on Progressive Donations and Couples’ Money Meetings. 🙂

What are money hacks?

Take the concept of workaround from hacking, and add progressive and anti-capitalist values and you’ll get motivation and instruction on how to move past freezing and fear into positive action around money.

Need tools and motivation to get your finances sorted?

I’ve got you with this eBook!

Real talk about money and class. Life hacks that are strategic, intersectional, and give banks less money, and our futures and each other more. Money mindset frameworks that are trauma-informed, self-care led, and radical in application.

Why Money Hacks?

Navigating social and economic systems that create the complex and often unfriendly world of finance, credit, and debt often equals finding your way around impediments.

Given the toxic nature of these interactions, it can seem temporarily better to avoid dealing with personal finance — but as those of us who’ve avoided know, it catches up with you.

Dealing with the guilt of choices that don’t match our ethics (banking with Wells Fargo? Citibank?…) or fallout from personal economic hardship (behind on debt, bad credit) takes energy from our lives – energy which could be used MUCH better in movements, activism, creative pursuits, or just leisure.

You don’t have to like “the system” to navigate it well! As a matter of fact, those of us who are not “insiders” of systems are often great at navigating them — we’ve had to figure out how, which is an advantage.
