Regardless of where you are in your life with money, I hope this page can be helpful to you. I treat this like my own personal finance handbook and always refer back to it when I need help. I also update this when I learn something new so the learnings are available to you as well.
Here’s my promise to you—I will only write about something that I’ve experienced. I only feel comfortable talking about things I’ve gone through. I would feel cheated if I read something by someone who didn’t actually go through that, so I would never do that to you.
I write about all my experiences with money and all the things I wish I had known in the past. There were moments in my life when I was in a so much debt that I resorted to using credit cards (never a good idea!). In another story, I recount myself getting scammed by a street con artist. More successfully, if I don’t change anything in my life right now, I am on track to retire by the time I’m 40.
Keep in mind that I’m no expert and that anything you read shouldn’t be treated as professional advice. You should seek actual professional advice if that’s what you want. After all, I’m just a normal person trying to earn a living.
