15 Ultra Inspiring & Kick Ass Money Quotes to Keep Your Finances in Tact


I don’t know about you, but I love Pinterest. There’s so many awesome recipes, workouts, outfits, and designer homes that sometime I can’t pin them on to my corresponding boards fast enough! My ultimate favorite, though, is browsing through the quotes. If I’m having a down day or feeling uninspired I’ll typically head over to this section for a good ol’ pick me up. There’s often a flurry of thoughts that cross my mind whilst scrolling: “Heck no I don’t need a man!” (Sorry honey, yes I need you – but not in the metaphorical I’m-an-independent-woman sense). “Of course I want to inspire people!” “Yes, I should eat more vegetables.” “Why don’t I just let it be?” “Friends, family, books and wine – what more do I need?” And of course the list goes on. These quotes usually end up giving me the kick in the pants I need and I’ll then march my way into a productive day. So what happens when you’re feeling down about your finances? Or need that extra dose of inspiration mixed with motivation to tackle those tough choices and stay on track? Fear not! Below I’ve compiled a handy list of Workable Wealth’s Top 15 Ultra Inspiring and Kick Ass Money Quotes to Keep Your Finances in Tact.
