The first thing I must admit is that I am starting this website in the middle of my high school midterms as a way to distract myself. Procrastination at it’s finest.
However, I am not just some kid who has no idea what he is doing, trying to tell strangers online how to manage their money. I have extensively read the work of many financial experts, from the 1996 hit “The Millionaire Next Door” by Thomas J. Stanley to the modern blogs “Mr. Money Mustache” and “Financial Samurai”. My goal is to draw the core lessons from these various sources and explain their practical applications to people just starting out on their journey to financial freedom.
I will also be posting lessons from my personal life and my own journey to financial freedom. While there is no clear path for me at this point, considering that I am still in high school, there are still choices that people my age and older can make to start preparing for not only a secure retirement but also big ticket purchases such as a vacation or a down payment on a home (or my friend’s old Chevy that I so desire!).
As time goes on, I will continue to get more specific about what I will be posting, and explain my own financial goals, tips, and tricks in detail. Until then, happy saving!
