I’m Paula: journalist, solopreneur and world traveler. Thanks to wise money managing, I’ve traveled to 27 countries, purchased a 99-year-old Victorian home near downtown Atlanta’s most beautiful park, and have never — ever — had a penny in debt or worked a job I hated. My mission is to help people live their dreams. I’m not writing about money; I’m writing about freedom. My dad taught classes at a local college; my mom stayed at home to raise me. Believe me: I was not born rich. Yet I’ve scuba-dived in Indonesia, rode camels at the Pyramids, climbed the ruins of Angkor Wat, trekked the Himalayas, rode a motorcycle in Burma … and much more. I'm a personal finance writer who relates money to travel, productivity, and designing your life. AffordAnything.org is my anti-frugality blog. I believe we live in a world of abundance. I believe in cultivating a life of freedom. I believe in cutting ruthlessly on things you don’t care about and spending lavishly on things that matter.
