How We Use Money Matters
Notice, we don’t emphasize how much you make, what part of the country you live in, what your background is, or how good you are with numbers. That’s because what matters more than any of those things are the decisions you make with your money.
Planning, saving, and giving are choices we all can make no matter our income level. If you don’t believe that yet, we understand. Stay with us, and we believe you’ll see what we’ve come to know through decades of experience with life, work, family, and money.
Our goal is to help you use your money to live a life you enjoy, fulfill your purpose, and make a difference.
We believe doing money differently can help you live differently.
We see so many people live with stress, worry, and uncertainty when it comes to money. We don’t want you to be one of those people, and that’s why we created Do Money Different.
This isn’t a one-size-fits all, quick-fix approach. It’s about taking what feels complicated and making it accessible to everyone--no accounting degree required. With a mix of education and encouragement, we help you make the right money choices for your life.
Through your four month subscription, you have on-demand access so you can get what you need when you need it. You’ll work through our education modules in 90 days, and you can revisit any topic as many times as you want. Our video content is taught by a real person with real money experience and accompanied by true-life examples and helpful graphics to make it easier to understand. You can also receive bonus content and have your questions answered through our live online experiences.
No matter you’re starting point, we invite you to start doing money different today.
We didn’t mean to make bad choices with our money, but it happened. After getting ourselves on the right path, we’ve set out to help others do money different from the start. Your story matters, and we want to help you learn the tried-and-true principles and money skills we’ve discovered through our own real-life experiences.
We’re a non-profit organization, and our team is personally commiting to building, growing, and supporting this community to empower future generations.

Meet David, one of our Do Money Different founders.
