I'm so happy you dropped by here at my personal finance website. I try to write personal finance stories going through life with 2 girls. I aim to inspire, motivate, and educate while laughing along the way beating debt and building wealth.
Personal finance has been a passion of mine since my wife and I took Financial Peace University back in August 2011. You can read our entire story here. Since then, we've paid off all of our debt other than our home mortgage, totaling over $27,000 over 2 years. We've continued to work the FPU baby steps and now have a fully funded emergency fund as well as are actively investing.
This website aims to inspire you by sharing our net worth reports, motivate you by sharing different stories of people winning with money and educate you with informative personal finance articles that are easy to read and relate to with actionable content that you can put into place right away.
I hope that you will grab a cup of your favorite beverage, mine is coffee flavored with french vanilla creamer, and read and take action on the information that's being shared here! Hopefully, as you learn to get control of your finances as well, you will share your story to help motivate and inspire others as well. We are here to learn from one another and I can't wait to hear your input on any of our posts in the comments section of your favorite posts!

I’ve been going full force since August last year and have dived head first into blogging after being burned out last summer. I think I’ve come to the summer doldrums once again and am going to be stepping back to focus on my most important responsibilities, my kids. I’ve been so busy as of late, that I haven’t even been making time to write and put new ideas out there. I am still going to be around, but I won’t be accepting guest posts for […]
Excuses Are Not Reasons – Why Getting Out of Debt is So Hard I have struggled with debt for my entire adult life and it has been the source of great anxiety over the years. I’ve let debt hold me back from career opportunity, from relationships, and from allowing myself to simply live a better life. After firmly landing myself in over $25,000 of debt and only being able to pay off less than $2,000 each year if even that, I knew there was a problem. I needed to do something about it. You can follow my debt payoff journey […]
We all have a different approach to money. Some of us know where every dime goes. Others have a more “flexible” approach to dollars and cents. But whatever your philosophy about money, what you need is a budget to help guide you and meet both short- and long-term goals.
