Every year around this time I put on my clever hat and try to have some fun with Black Friday… This has produced a multitude of award winning articles such as “How I feel about Black Friday in Animated Gifs“, “7 Things I’d rather do than shop on Black Friday,” and my personal favorite, “10 ways Black Friday is like sex.’ (I swear, I deserve […]

One of the very first questions I ask all my money coaching clients is “what are your goals?”  Quickly followed by “how bad do you want them?” The first one is an easy one because any of us can rattle them off at any point (have a million dollar net worth, retire early, be the #1 personal finance blog in the world!), but the second […]

And then it went viral on social media and other finance blogs, eventually landing him on the home page of Yahoo! Finance? Yeah, apparently he duped us. While he is a legitimate millionaire, it seems the route he got there was anything but “self-made.” Here’s what […]

I got a really interesting/confusing email the other day that initially through me for a loop. It was from my friend B. and went something like this: “Hey Jay! Do you still do money coaching? I need some help getting my finances in order and thought maybe you get me back on track. Lemme know.” Nothing too out of the blue, right? Plenty of people […]

My brother always thinks I have my $hit together because I never ask him for any help. It’s true I never ask him in the general sense, but it’s false I don’t have any problems.
