How to Use Money to Live the Life You Want!
What are all of us chasing with our personal finance pursuits? Is it just more money?

I think what what we’re really seeking is a better life. A better life for ourselves, our family, our friends, and everyone around us.

This site is built on the philosophy that we should use money to live our lives, instead of living our lives around money. I know, in a society where everything has a price tag this is easier said than done but we’re going to do our best.

Behind the Keyboard
I’m a 29 year old software engineer living in the Midwest with a wonderful wife and new baby boy.

I like money.
I like life more.
Trying to figure out how to have both at the same time.

More about Me
Read about my money mistakes, why I write about personal finance, how long I’ve been saving, and things I’ve given up to save money.  These are all questions I answered in a short interview with Bryan Fleming, founder of the Personal Growth Carnvial and the Million Dollar Savings Club.

My Advice
Oscar Wilde said, “The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.” Luckily for you, I have no advice to give. I am not a financial expert, what you read here comes from personal experience.

Read at your own risk. Please don’t make any financial decisions based on what you read here. Work with your accountant, lawyer, and other professionals in your financial dealings.

Thanks for reading!
