Truly living fabulously with the four principles of a debt free life
4 tells our story of how we learned personally and professionally about getting out of and staying out of debt, after years of living fabulously but fabulously broke. On this four-week, Queer Money series, we share the highlights of each of the four principles and give you the tools to master each principle.

Principle one: be money conscious
The money consciousness principle is uniquely interesting to us because when we wrote 4, we thought we brilliantly coined this term “money conscious.” To us, it meant being clear on how much money we earn, save and spend. It meant having a little understanding of the economy, and it affects our lives.
It wasn’t until after we published 4 that we read Napoleon Hill’s book, Think & Grow Rich. In his book, Hill talks about money consciousness on a metaphysical level. The results of money consciousness on both a practical and spiritual level produce the same results. As Hill says, “only those who become money conscious ever accumulate great riches.”
Achieving money consciousness
On this Queer Money, David tells a fun but all too familiar story about when we weren’t money conscious and spent over $500 on new clothes for one weeknight of dancing – the queens must dance, right? This is an example of what we mean by living fabulously broke. We then share our story of how we became money conscious and its effect on our personal and financial lives.
Because we all love money tools, we share several tools to help you become money conscious, including our free eBook, Do You Know How To Be Money Conscious?
