It’s about that time again! Time to talk about my fabulous team and spotlight an individual who helps make SAO possible.

This month I want to introduce you to a special team member who is the undercover voice of the SAO blog: Kelly Dundon!


Behind The Scenes of The SAO Blog

Kelly is our superstar blog writer who takes all the thoughts, stories, lessons and ideas I have and makes sense of them! Every week we work together to figure out what we’re going to share with you all. Whether it’s an update on one of our latest projects, a shout out to a partner in the industry or useful insights, I want to share with our audience that Kelly helps craft the narrative.

A lot of people would look at the idea of having a blog and think, “That sounds like a lot of work! I don’t have time for that. I can’t write a blog.” And, I hear you!

But you know what I am good at?

I can talk. I can talk about things very well, so what do I do?

Every week I record a voice memo just talking about a topic or project I want to feature on the blog. Kelly types up my thoughts, formats them into a blog and I edit them. We go back and forth, fine-tuning and editing until it’s ready to be shared with you all.

That’s the beauty of having a team. They do the things I’m not good at and the things I can’t do. If you get nothing else from my blogs, hopefully you at least understand how important it is to have a team and to delegate to them the many varying tasks that come together to make our opportunities possible. I couldn’t do this all on my own!


More About Kelly

Even prior to writing our blogs, Kelly was one of the first on the scene to help establish our brand voice, create our web copy, and craft email campaigns. She’s helped us maintain a consistent voice and helps share our story in a way that connects with you all in a meaningful way.

In the past two or so years that she’s been working with our team, Kelly has been traveling the world. She was volunteering abroad and working remotely from anywhere her laptop would take her. By doing so, she’s been fortunate enough to make friends all around the world, truly feeling at home just about anywhere.

And during this time of travel, she found her true passion: to help people, to make them feel seen, heard and included. Last fall, she followed that passion and started her Master of Social Work at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Luckily, she’s stuck around writing for us and continues to grow her knowledge of financial education and freedom, so hopefully she’ll be ahead of the game far before retirement! And I would not doubt it for a minute. When Kelly puts her mind to something, she fully commits. We greatly appreciate her integrity and commitment!

Kelly is one of five children and loves her family more than anything. Being a sister, daughter and friend is her favorite thing in the world. She’s also a certified yoga instructor and loves to practice yoga in addition to running, biking and CrossFit. Once she finishes her Masters in 2020, Kelly plans to go abroad to work on her PhD.

Kelly, we’re glad to have you as a part of our team and for all the hard work you put into our blogs!
