My Two Dollars

November 22, 2009

This week I recommend you check out My Two Dollars, written by David. Like many personal finance bloggers he doesn’t consider himself a financial expert, but rather blogs about his own experiences with money; such as being in-over-his head in debt, getting married and then changing career paths.

I’m actually a little jealous of David because he’s made the leap to working for himself, which I would like to do at some point. He offers some good tips about personal finances from the perspective of someone who is self-employed:

Another reason I like My Two Dollars is because the entire time David’s discussing ways to save money, reduce debt and manage your finances better – he’s also realistic about it. He warns against being overly cheap and frugal because if you never spend a dime to enjoy time with friends and family or buy something you really want to have for example – then you’re really not living are you? There are extremes to everything and David points out you can save money and reduce debt and responsibly manage your finances without going to the extremes of becoming a Scrooge.

About David

David is a mobile guy, he’s moved from Los Angeles to New Mexico to Colorado during the time he’s run his site.  I guess that’s one of the benefits of being self employed, you can move where ever you’d like.  You can tell he’s come a long way financially just from reading his early blog posts, so check out My Two Dollars and you can continue to learn about entreprenership and personal finance right along with him.
