I'm just an average Joe that got serious about taking control of my financial life. Around 28 years old I decided I was going to get out of debt. In the 3 years that followed I paid off a $7,000 car, a $14,000 Harley Davidson, and $65,000 in student loans. Additionally I managed to accumulate $90,000 in my 401k.
Another great thing happened when I started watching, monitoring, and being responsible with money... more of it came my way. The diligence and motivation showed up in my work and I quickly received raises and additional responsibilities.
I am now debt free and have an emergency fund equal to 3 months of income. I don't worry about finances any more. It's a great feeling and now that I can, I want to share all I learned and the steps I took along the way to help you!
Please browse the site or just contact me. I like hearing from readers and I'm happy to answer questions, give a few pointers, or help in any other way I can.
