Welcome to Open Mouths Get Fed! My name is Liz and I am so happy you stopped by my slice of these vast interwebs. I am a 30-something New York native who is currently enjoying the lower cost of living in Chicago.

For years I have doled out personal finance and career advice to my friends and family. Most of it has even been solicited and welcomed. I figured that they may not be the only people who would value my insights so I started Open Mouths Get Fed. The name speaks to my love of eating, but it also encapsulates speaking up to ask for what you need and want. It’s about resourcefulness. Unlike many other writers in this space I ain’t rich, I ain’t poor. I am hoping that sharing my journey to greater financial freedom and career autonomy will resonate.
