Ever feel pressure to dumb down your accomplishments? If you’re a man, likely not. People ask you about your work, are impressed with your position or income, and look to you for leadership.

Today I have another entry in my world-famous breadwinning, six figure mom series – Jenny from Living Life, Loving Us. She hacked her way into a six figure income, and shares her career advice and her families financial journey.

My husband and I haven’t paid for childcare in the 14+ years we’ve been parents. With one short exception, which I’ll talk about here. On Friday I shared the story of the real reason my husband became a full time stay at home dad at 40. Since you all enjoyed hearing our story, I thought you might want to know a bit more about how we came to avoid childcare – and some of the frank pluses and minuses I’ve noticed about our approach.
