About Family Money Adventure

Our Story

Hi, We are Kevin and Barb Payne. We’ve spent almost 20 years learning how to manage our money better. We’ve had plenty of failures along the way, but we’ve also found ways to succeed. Our money successes have allowed us to stress less and enjoy life more.

Family Money Adventure was created to share our story  (the good and the bad) and spark meaningful conversations about family, money, and travel. 

We aren’t experts. We don’t have all of the answers and we’re not experts by any means.  Our adventures with money, travel and family have been a constant source of growth and we hope our story inspires you to become more engaged in your own story. 

Our family is us, four incredible teenagers (yes, you read that right), the best pup in the world, and a slightly evil cat. 

Join us in the conversation and take control of your own adventure today.

Our core values

We believe diversity and inclusion allows everyone to be themselves and thus cultivates curiosity, understanding, and empathy for others.

We look to the future while not ignoring the past. Our optimism helps us to keep an open mind, positive environment to foster connections and be better at solving people’s problems.

We strive to be friendly, generous, and considerate of others and ourselves. This takes courage and some optimism as it involves our willingness to celebrate others consistently.
