About Me

I’m Katja, a passionate finance blogger and content creator.

Welcome to my little corner, where I share my journey to making more money, saving more, and, most importantly, living more fully.

cfg about

Since my youth, I’ve dreamed of living life according to my own ideas. I couldn’t imagine working from 9 to 5. All I wanted was to make enough money to live a life I love. This included traveling and learning as much as possible.

Luckily, I met my now-husband when I was 19, during a summer job on a small island in the North Sea in Germany. He shared the same vision of life and was already living that lifestyle. So what could be better than doing this together?

That was in 1996 when our life together began. After doing many jobs, mostly seasonal, we had several months of the year to do what we wanted. We spent most of our time in Turkey, traveling in a caravan.

To live such a life, we always had to keep our finances in good shape. We had to know how much money we needed to live without income. Therefore, budgeting and using an expense tracker were essential. That’s when my fascination with finances truly ignited.

Since we could only save and budget a limited amount, we, especially my husband, were always looking for ways to earn more. And we tried many things. Some were successful, some were not. But that’s not a bad thing because I gained a lot of experience🙂.

Then something great happened: in 2019, I started my first blog and began writing online. And that was the turning point in my life and how I was able to make money.

Working online is the best way to make money because I can do it from anywhere in the world. All I need is an internet connection and, of course, my laptop.

In March 2023, I began my Substack journey by publishing my very first piece. Even without any prior knowledge about Substack or how it operates, I managed to generate an additional income of over 2,000 euros through subscriptions within just 6 months. This achievement was particularly remarkable considering my initial lack of understanding about the platform.

Now, I’ve achieved the gratifying milestone of generating steadily increasing income through both my blog and my Substack publication.

That’s why I’m excited to share insights on taking control of your finances, starting a side hustle, and earning money online, whether it’s by crafting a Substack publication or blogging. However, my deepest passion lies in empowering you to enrich your life to the fullest, utilizing the resources you already possess—yes, including money. 

I warmly invite you to join me if you’re on a similar path of creating a life you adore while pursuing your passion and earning money.
