I’d like to say that I’ve never known the power of community until now, but that’s probably not true. However, all experiences before The Start Experiment have been blocked in my mind thanks to all the awesomeness that’s happened. Continue reading
I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a morning person. I want to snooze later than possible or I’ll get grumpy, whiny and take on other characteristics of a zombie (yep, zombies need sleep, too)!
However, it’s been my experience that waking up at 5:00am to work on my dreams isn’t totally horrible! :) Once I go bottoms up on my coffee, my tired eyes start to sparkle. The result is awesomeness and a few things I have trouble explaining to my friends… Continue reading
One of the fears I’ve recently overcome is that of swallowing pills. I mean, how could I have been so afraid of something so tiny (except those two horse pills, amiright??)? This is how…
It’s been a reoccurring theme in my life the past few years to be totally weird. Here’s one definition of what that means:
adj. weird·er, weird·est
- Of, relating to, or suggestive of the preternatural or supernatural.

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to watch another home as a way to add more momentum to our debt snowball and more cute dog photos to my Instagram. It was more of a staycation because there was one dog named Mallory and a lot of plants to water (yes, Mallory liked being watered, too!).

You’ve ‘heard’ me blog about the Start Experiment for the past few weeks. Well, guess what! Registration for Round 2 is officially open!! Check out Jon’s post here for lots of ambiguous info! :) (It will delete in 24 hours, Mission Impossible-style.)

Last night I read a really interesting post by author Donald Miller called “How to Tell Your Story in 30 Seconds.” It’s about providing a CliffsNotes answer when someone says “tell me about yourself” or “what do you do.” It’s about doing it in such a way that you form a story, rather than a list of facts. I believe it also helps you add “why” to your “what.” More on that theory here.
So, without further ado, here’s my 30 Seconds to May:
My name is May Bohon. In 2010 God blessed my life by putting a mirror up to how horribly I handled the money He entrusted to me. Since then, I’ve fought my way out of debt, discovered joy in giving, lead personal finance classes and started taking steps towards working for Dave Ramsey so I can turn my passion into a career!
That was fun. :)
Your turn: What’s your 30-second story? What will it be 5 years from now?Final thought: If you don’t conclude your story with an “!”, then is it really the story you want to tell?
