Let’s see here, what can I tell you about myself… Well, I’m 6’1, hyperactive, rock a ‘hawk, like drinking beer, blaring hip-hop, playing with my new baby, and am now in my early 30′s. Oh, and I’m a sucker for old American coins.

While I *thought* I was The Man when it came to money, I really didn’t get my act together until we bought our first home in 2007 for over $350,000. On a whim, and when we were looking to rent (what the hell’s wrong with us?? Haha…). Needless to say it was a much needed wake-up call ;)
Soooooooo, I tracked my expenses for 3 months, made a budget, read some books (here’s a list of my faves, as well as other killer resources), became an “adult,” and quickly realized the following calculation was more than accurate:
Budgets = Confidence = Sexy
It’s been smooth sailing ever since! I’ve continually tracked my net worth and paid attention to my money day in and day out, stumbled across the great world of personal finance blogging and idea sharing (this blog got started in Feb of 2008), randomly turned this into my full time “real job” a few short years later, and now here we are today! It’s been an incredible ride to say the least :)
Now will this blog sound kooky at times? Sure thing. Will you wonder why I use the words “Super” and “Sexy” a lot? You bet. Ultimately though, my goal is to spread some good ideas around town and spark some motivation. I don’t know about you, but I get CRAZY bored reading about finances by old white men in blah styles, so I do my best to spice things up and keep things entertaining around here. We all have A.D.D., so it’s important you’re having fun on the site!
You can find my Top 10 favorite posts up there in the right hand column, along w/ a mess of other topics I tend to write about every day, M-F. When you’re passionate about it, it keeps ya going .
