Welcome to family money adventure

Encouraging your to build wealth with kindness and your values center stage. 

Why family money adventure?

There are three main components to our content. We want to share how we manage family finances in order to travel more and spend more time together. 

Family

Our site is for families, or those planning a family. Our family means the world to us and I know that you feel the same way (about your own family of course. We will be satisfied if you just like us).That is why most of the content you find here is all about the kids. In the future we plan to expand on content for teens as our kids grow. Subscribe to stay up to date on our latest posts.

Money

Money is important. It’s hard to do most things without it. Growing up, I don’t remember learning about money, spending, saving, budgets or retirement. Most of us aren’t taught about money until we already are in debt or have made poor financial decisions. We want to share some practical solutions for making your money work for you. Financial freedom should be a goal for every family.

Adventure

Our family loves adventure. We love to explore, learn and have fun wherever we go. Adventures can be local. Adventures can be in your own neighborhood or even your own house. Our goal is to share ways you can find more room for adventure in your family’s life, whether through travel tips or learning to get creative in your part of the world. Oh and we make sure to share how to do it on a budget.

While no two situations are similar, it’s a natural feeling to compare your experience to others. In an attempt to empower your wallet and keep your heart in the right space, I’d like to offer a few suggestions for how you can manage your spending through the holidays.

Orlando World Center Marriott: Family Fun For your Next Florida Adventure

Earlier this fall, I had the pleasure of an extended stay at Orlando World Center Marriott for FinCon. I planned extra days on the front end of my trip to explore Walt Disney World before the conference, so I ended up staying eight nights at this impressive hotel property. 

This was my first stay at World Center, although we’ve enjoyed pool access in the past through stays at Marriott’s Royal Palms, a sister property located next door. 

Orlando World Center Marriott is one of the premier hotel properties within minutes of the WDW parks and Disney Springs. It’s also a great option for families seeking a retreat from the long park lines. Keep reading to learn more about my stay, including features and amenities available on the property.

We’ve had the honor and privilege of raising our family near the CLE. The city has given us so many great family days. Whether you’re a longtime local or one of the billion people we’ve told to visit Cleveland, there are plenty of things to see and do in this fair city.
