Tell us a little about you:
I’m a full-time blogger from PA. my hobbies include, mountain biking, running, lifting weights, watching movies, sleeping and reading. I started blogging in 2010 for fun and it slowed turned into a career. Here is a quick list to get to know me:
I got myself into and out of over $10,000 worth of credit card debt.
I bought a house at the exact wrong time to buy and lost a ton doing so.
I spent close to $30 modifying a sports car when I was younger.
I worked in the financial services industry for close to 10 years.
I learned money habits (the good ones) from the 1%.
I have a net worth over $500K.
I plan to retire by 50.
What is your blog about?
Money Smart Guides is a personal finance blog whose goal is to help readers pay off their debt and start investing for their future. While I do talk all things personal finance, the majority of the content is centered around paying off debt and investing.
Where do you live and what do you love about it?
I live 20 minutes outside of Philly. I love the area because we have everything around us and when we want to head into the city, it’s a quick train ride to downtown.
What is your favorite spot to visit in the Northeast?
For a while I would say Philly. But last year my wife and I went to the Finger Lakes for our 1 yr anniversary and I fell in love with the area.
What do you love most about blogging?
Getting to talk about finance all of the time. I went to school for finance and I worked in the financial services industry for close to 10 years. It’s something I love doing and it never feels like work.
What is your favorite form of social media?
I would have to say Twitter just because it is so easy to not only talk to and connect with others, but its a great way to see what everyone else is talking about as well.
I am all about helping and supporting others, so if anyone ever needs something shared, just ask!
