Gwen April Challenge: Tax Party Prep Take III

Ladies… I’m stuck.

My challenge for the last couple months has been proactive tax prep for next year, though I’ve fallen flat and haven’t completed my challenge.


I have a couple of ideas.

#1) There’s no urgency. This would be the most proactive I’ve ever been in my life for taxes. I usually don’t have this much space when I’m doing my expenses, so this is a new experience.

#2) I’m “busy.” Yes, this is a BS excuse. We’re all busy.

#3) Taxes aren’t FUN! I have been on a fun bender lately. I’ve realized that the more fun I have, the happier I am. It’s awesome. I think I’m afraid to burst the fun bubble by getting into the number crunching and spreadsheets.

So what am I going to do to turn this around?


This month in May we’re running the Mo’ Money Mondate. We’ve created a Facebook group and invited our friends to take on a money challenge that will help you make mo’ money and mo’ progress. I will be taking on this challenge again, though I will be infusing more fun into the mix. I will be starting small. And I am now accountable to a group of people who I think are awesome! They’re also coming to my house for the celebration partayy at the end of the month, so I’ve definitely gotta step up and make progress this time.

Thank you for reading, and if you want to join the Mo’ Money Mondate add me as a friend on Facebook (Gwen Elliot) and I’ll invite you to join! We officially start on Monday May 9th!

<3 Gwen
