The Thriving Lady is a community of women joined together by a common goal to improve our finances and live a simple, intentional life. Despite my desire to create a community of openness and sharing, I am aware that we all come from various backgrounds and life experiences that may shape our opinions and perspectives. These differences may lead to disagreement with content published on this site, as well as with each other in the comments section.
My hope is that we can share our opinions in a kind, non-offensive manner, seeking first to understand another’s perspective before commenting. I will never discourage anyone from voicing their opinions, as long as it is done respectfully. However, I reserve the right to delete any comments that are mean-spirited, argumentative, or divisive.
