    Updated 8/19/11

    Welcome to ChiefFamilyOfficer.com. I’m Cathy, and I’m a happily married mom of two boys ages 11 and (almost) 13. In September 2010, I quit my full-time job as an attorney to become a work-at-home blogger mom. It was a scary big step, but one we had been working toward for years, by paying off debt, shopping smart, and saving money.

    I started Chief Family Officer way back in the dark ages of blogging, after my oldest son was born in 2005. I was on maternity leave and my husband suggested that I might enjoy blogging. He was right! I’ve loved blogging from the moment I started, although my blogging style and my mission have evolved over the years.

    My current mission is to help you achieve financial freedom and family bliss, as my family is working toward the same goal.

    What is financial freedom? I define it as having enough money to do the things you want to do. In our case, financial freedom has meant having enough money for me to work at home. In the not-too-distant future, it will mean paying for college and retirement.

    How do you achieve financial freedom? I wish there was a quick or easy answer, but I don’t have one for you. Instead, what I can offer are money saving tips, daily deals, and strategies that work for me – and that’s what I share here at CFO.

    Additionally, I love to share information about parenting and cooking. I publish new posts every day, and while I talk about what’s going on in my life, my great hope is that you’ll be able to relate to what I’m discussing and gain something from reading about my experiences. I love the comments that readers leave, because they teach me and add so much to the discussion. I hope you’ll join in, too.
