Bio And Background

. . . The goal was simple:

Teach as many people as possible about the inner workings of personal finance while keeping the content ​100% free.

You see, I’m a huge advocate for free information. Why pay for overpriced online courses or mentors when you can learn everything on the internet at no cost?

He also summarizes his life experience:

As a kid, I spent the majority of my time at the county library, reading as many books that I could get my hands on. One of my favorite and most important mottos in life is “If you are not growing, you are dying.”

As a lifelong learner, I take pride in my work and I hope that you can join me on my journey through this complex world in which we live.
