A Message from Penny Forward Founder and CEO, Chris Peterson
As we gather around tables adorned with the rich tapestry of Thanksgiving feasts, we find ourselves at the intersection of tradition and gratitude. For many, this day marks a reunion with loved ones, an opportunity to savor a hearty meal together, and a chance to reflect on the blessings in our lives. However, it’s important to acknowledge that this occasion can also be tinged with the potential for uncomfortable conversations, especially with those we care about but may not always see eye to eye with.
Yet, amid the diverse experiences that Thanksgiving may bring, one constant holds true: the power of gratitude to shape our outlook and influence the lives of those around us. Whether we eagerly anticipate reuniting with family or brace ourselves for challenging discussions, adopting a mindset of gratitude can transform our perspective and create positive impacts.
In the spirit of gratitude, let’s take a moment to recognize the people in our lives who support and uplift us. There are those who wish for our success, health, comfort, and safety. Often, they are ready and willing to lend a helping hand, waiting for us to reach out and invite them to contribute in ways that align with their unique talents.
At Penny Forward, this Thanksgiving is a time for profound appreciation. Since our inception in 2021, the support you’ve extended to us has been nothing short of inspiring. Each podcast episode, financial education course, group chat, and one-on-one financial counseling session has been made richer by your engagement. We hope that, in turn, we’ve been able to make a positive impact on your lives.
As we reflect on the gratitude we feel, we invite you to consider sharing your thoughts with us. If Penny Forward has played a role in improving your financial well-being, please take a few minutes to write a brief testimonial. Your words have the power to inspire and guide others on their financial journeys.
Additionally, if you’re able to do so, we welcome one-time or recurring donations to help us expand our reach and continue providing valuable resources. Your contribution enables us to reach more individuals, offering them the support and education they need to navigate their financial paths.
Finally, we ask for your support in spreading the word. Share your experiences with Penny Forward with your family and friends, encouraging them to explore the resources we offer. Together, we can create a community that fosters financial well-being and empowers individuals to take control of their financial futures.
On behalf of the entire Penny Forward team, we extend our heartfelt thanks for your continued support. May this Thanksgiving be filled with warmth, connection, and moments of reflection on the positive impact we can have on each other’s lives.
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!
