Brandy T. Jones

As an adult, I struggled with debt head-on, especially after my divorce. As a single mother, raising my daughter alone, we lived paycheck to paycheck from my day jobs. Although I was able to make ends meet, I didn’t really understand how to manage the money. I never felt I had enough. Providing for my daughter’s wants along with her needs proved to be the beginning of a life-long savings strategy. I always tried to reward her for doing a good job at school, helping around the house and such. I couldn’t always get her what she wanted, but one of things she really liked was going to McDonald’s. On one particular day, she ordered a Big Mac, large fries and large soda. I had $5 and the bill was $4.95.

I couldn’t afford to get myself anything to eat after getting her what she wanted, so I lied and told her I wasn’t hungry. That story resurfaced years later when I was going through my wallet and I saw several $5 bills. They triggered the memory of the story of being at McDonald’s with my daughter and my only having $5 to spend. From that very moment I began putting away every $5 bill that came my way. It’s a reminder I always have money. It says I always have something to hold on to.

Why a $5 bill? A $5 bill is rare, in that they don’t come around that often. When you get one, treat it like a jewel. I have helped dozens of people redirect their financial flow and in so doing have changed the course of their lives.

Norman Woods


Norman A. Woods is also known as Jazz poet NSide, the healer. He felt that the name represented his appreciation for being able to express his internal struggles and various stages of his triumphs. Never feeling as though there was no place for him in the commercial marketplace, he chose to stop writing and performing for a few years. This time away, provided him time for introspective insight.
He refers to his style as Soul dialog. Covering a variety of subjects, soul dialog is what takes place when you are engaged in meaningful conversation. These are the type of conversations, where each individual can feel as though they can contribute and participate. Transformative empowerment occurs when they walk away with their own enriched thoughts and a stronger sense of being, a sense of purpose and direction. Anyone can speak using catchy phrases and display colorful intellectualism. But it takes compassion and humility to touch and move a soul. View Guest page
