About one year ago this month, I had happened across my first ever personal finance blogs. Needless to say, I was hooked. Shortly thereafter, I decided that I would like to become a contributor to the discussion and created this blog (my very first blog of any kind).
Generally, my intent for this blog has been two-fold:
1) Create a forcing function to hold myself accountable and actually DO the things that are needed to achieve my financial goals
2) Create a means to share ideas and adopt the best ones from others (I certainly don’t have all the answers and make mistakes!)
Often times, it is a glimpse into my financial life at 35, married with children (4) to a woman who thankfully shares MOST of the same values when it comes to personal finance. This is good, because if we were completely aligned, I would probably save everything for the future and not allow myself to fully appreciate and enjoy the present.
As of now, I have been either too short of ideas or too lazy (more likely) to have become rich. Until that happens, I am going the long way around by attempting to build wealth gradually, over time…bumps and all.
