We are responsible for our ourselves, but that doesn't mean we have to do it by ourselves. That's why SunTrust created their onUP Movement last year. To coincide with Financial Literacy Month (April, obviously), it's the perfect time to talk about financial confidence. . They're asking people to join them in an effort to inspire other Americans to take a step toward their own financial freedom. My little piece of advice: create BIG goals, with smaller benchmarks along the way. Why not dream big? If you can't dream big, you can't reach big. Your goal might seem intimidating at first, but if you lay it out in steady increments then your confidence will simply snowball toward the finish line. Having the check-in points along the way will help ensure that you're on the right track and allow you to make changes before you get too far in. Check out the onUp Movement and join over 1.4 million other folks, not unlike me and you, on a quest for financial confidence.
At SunTrust Bank their purpose is lighting the way to financial well-being. When you feel confident about your money, you can save for your goals and spend knowingly on what matters most to you.
The onUp Movement is 1 million strong…and growing. onUp is about having the confidence to move forward one smart step at a time.
Join now and start building your financial confidence today.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of SunTrust. The opinions and text are all mine.
"It wasn’t just my marriage that was over, it was me. I was done with not being happy, with not being the woman I truly am, and with not living a life that felt connected to my soul.
In truth, it was me that broke long before my marriage did—and so I had no other choice but to break it so that I could find myself again—and perhaps really for the first time."
"For a long time, I held onto anger and resentment for things people had done to me. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean we let the bad behaviors continue. It means we create boundaries, but also understand that people are who they are and we cannot change them. We can only change our reaction to them, how often we spend time with them, and whether or not we let it go. I try to be like the ocean. I may have a wave of anger, but it comes and then goes just as quickly."

The event itself was super rad. The giant pool floats were such a fun seating idea! I think they might have been my favorite part of the ~decor. It was especially adorable to see so many kids enjoying them. I also was super into the fact they had Corn Hole set up! That makes me want to go find the ones we had built a few years ago. Such a fun party game! I may be a bit rusty, but I bet I could give you a run for your money in some good ol’ bean bag tossing haha
"Through Emma’s Senior Dog Project we honor my sweet Emma and capture the special bond families share with their senior dogs. The usual sitting fee of $250 is waived and instead a $100 donation to Agape Animal Rescue is requested."Y'all, this makes my heart swell and it's such a neat way to cherish your pets and help bring awareness and assistance to Agape Animal Rescue. Both Pip and Georgia are getting up there in bully age so this tugs at my heartstrings extra hard. // Another incredible rescue-geared small business belongs to my friend and college classmate, Madison, of Birch and Terrier. Madison's dedication to rescue animals in the Franklin/Nashville area is truly so inspiring. She gives so much of her time and her heart to these animals (including her own rescues and foster pups). So much love and appreciation to Zappos, April, Madison, and any/all of the other people and businesses supporting this cause. This project was so easy to say yes to because it's not just fun, it's useful! It for sure changed the lives of so many animals, and their new forever families, too. I hope each and every one of you get a chance to check out the Friends With Benefits Roadshow. Even if you just go pet some pups, it's been scientifically proven to decrease stress and increase all those feely good vibes. So basically there's no reason not to, science says so.
