Meet The Thought Card
Hiya, I’m Danielle Desir! Welcome to The Thought Card, an award-winning travel finance blog!
I’m a travel enthused New Yorker (and now a happy Connecticut resident) and since 2014, I’ve been traveling (more). I’m a photographer, nature lover and I’ve even danced professionally. I am also a Financial Analyst and Grant Specialist by trade and I have a knack for financial planning.
Here on The Thought Card, I tackle travel finance issues head-on because I know how frustrating it can be to want to travel the world without the financial know-how.
Money impacts our ability to travel and the sooner we begin to 1) understand how to save and 2) know where to look for the best deals, the faster we can begin to live out our travel dreams.
“I am not rich nor am I privileged, but I am financially savvy.”
My financial expertise has taken me across the globe to over 22 countries and 3 continents. If I can afford to travel extensively while paying off my student loans, saving for a house and working full-time, I know that you can too.
What Is The Thought Card?
Communication is key in any relationship.
A few years ago when faced with a challenging situation, I started sending my loved ones “thought cards” expressing my emotions and thoughts. Eventually, they caught on and started sending them back – we’ve been doing this exchange ever since.
Reading each others’ thought cards always brought us together in new ways and strengthened our bond.
The Thought Card is my way of bringing travel enthusiasts together. It’s a place to share financial strategies, travel deals, and money saving resources. Yep – no problem (be it financial or travel) is too big for us to tackle together.
“If you’ve got somewhere you want to go or something you want to do…I’m here to help make it happen!”
