One of the reasons I decided to start this blog is to track my financial progress. I know I am not a great writer. I will mess up on punctuation and probably have the occasional typo but I am ok with that because that is not the purpose of me writing this blog. The truth is, I’ve always been more likely to stick with stuff (plans, goals) if I write them down. (My wife would probably disagree with this, because the honey do list never gets done) My main goal of this is to keep accountability with myself.
I do not have a financial degree of any sorts, nor have I had any formal training in finance. I believe that just because someone has a degree in finance, it doesn’t always translate to them actually being smart with their finances. Any and all of my financial knowledge is either self-taught or is what was learned from others experiences. Mainly my family’s. I know I will not make all the best financial decisions and that is ok with me. I am 27, still need to live and have fun during my younger years.
I hope to develop a good readership with this blog. I look forward to hearing advice/experiences with finances from everybody. It is never a bad thing to hear others points of view on questions that I may have. The more the merrier, it is one of my favorite ways to learn. So this is the beginning of my journey, my journey to financial freedom.
