The Most Powerful Way To Protect Your Time And Sanity

Kate Northrup

I’ve been hearing about getting on the “No Train” for years. And until very recently, I thought I was on it. I thought I was clear on my priorities. I thought I was protecting my time. I thought I was saying no to the wrong things so that I could say yes to the right… Continue Reading →

Don’t Take Advice From These People

Kate Northrup

When I was 18 and I started my first business, I asked a lot of people for advice. Since I was so young I asked mostly older people for their opinion about what I was up to. I assumed since they’d been alive longer than I had that their advice would be good. Some of them… Continue Reading →

The Greatest Asset You Have At Your Disposal

Kate Northrup

One of my all-time favorite movie quotes, which happens to have been one of the recently departed Seymour Hoffman’s lines in Almost Famous, is: “THE ONLY TRUE CURRENCY IN THIS BANKRUPT WORLD IS WHAT YOU SHARE WITH SOMEONE ELSE WHEN YOU’RE UNCOOL.” BEING UNCOOL I, for one, have never been cool, despite trying, from time to time, to… Continue Reading →

Practicing The Art Of Containment

kate_northrup

My tendency is to tell pretty much anyone pretty much anything, unless I think it’s going to hurt their feelings. Sometimes this is awesome because I have a TON of community support around my dreams and desires, but sometimes it bites me in the ass. Example: I’m pumped about a new creation. I haven’t finished it… Continue Reading →

If You’re Waiting For This You’ll Be Waiting Forever

Kate Northrup

Sometimes it’s so much easier to wait around for someone else to take care of us than to take care of ourselves. Or so we think. We only half-heartedly take care of our money because we secretly hope that pretty soon we’ll get married and our husband will do that for us. We don’t make… Continue Reading →

Curate Your Heart Out: On Taking Risks And Being Choosy

Kate Northrup

When I chose to be an art history major at Brown, I thought I’d be a museum curator. I loved the idea of getting to pick and choose what was featured in the galleries. The thought of having the power to choose new and different creative voices, as well as to honor classics sounded deeply… Continue Reading →

Don’t Put Me In That Hole With That Pigeon!

Kate Northrup

I have a confession to make: I’ve got this book about money coming out and I’m scared of being “the money girl” for the rest of my life. My book is called Money: A Love Story, Untangle Your Financial Woes and Create the Life You Really Want. As my publication date gets closer I find myself… Continue Reading →

What You Want Is Closer Than You Think – Here’s Why!

Kate Northrup

There’s this funny, sort of modern-day fable someone once told me about some investment banker-type guys who took a trip to Mexico. They’re sitting around in this seaside village and they notice an elderly Mexican gentleman fishing at the end of a pier. In talking with him they find out that a huge supply of rare,… Continue Reading →

Here’s What I Know…

Kate Northrup

I found a note I’d written to myself sometime this year entitled, “Here’s what I know.” I don’t have a clue when I wrote it, but I know that when I read it, it made me feel good. Here’s hoping it makes you feel good, too. HERE’S WHAT I KNOW… Doing something for the money… Continue Reading →

The Art of Exposing Oneself!

Kate Northrup

A while back I was working on a new project; I’d been sitting on the idea for six months. For whatever reason (fear, time, other projects, lack of clarity, karma), I just couldn’t get myself to launch it. Throughout the entire process (and ongoing, as it’s not over yet) I felt like I was exposing… Continue Reading →

The Four-Letter Word Often Confused With Freedom!

kate_northrup

If you’re reading this you’re most likely a dreamer, a big thinker, a grand visioneer. I know, because I’m one, too. And you know what they say: birds of a feather. So here’s the thing: when we think big, we often imagine the life that we are going to lead when our visions turn into… Continue Reading →

This Makes Me Super Uncomfortable But I’m Doing It Anyway: I Heart My Moon Cycle Month!

kate_northrup

I’m a woman who loves to get stuff done. I can work 12-14 hours a day, no problem, if I love what I’m doing. I’ve been getting little messages for the past year or so, though, that producing all the time, even if I’m jazzed about what I’m doing, is probably not the best way to go. Last… Continue Reading →
