Hey guys! I’m thinking of doing a new series here where I share a bunch of cool/random/interesting stuff that goes down in my world every week, and wanna know if you find it helpful. It’ll be mostly $$$ related stuff of course, but I’ll also include personal and blog/business items as well. Let’s try it now and see how it goes, eh? :) ******************************** Best […]

What up, Hustle Nation! Another day another dollar earned/saved/invested/paid off in debt, right? :) It’s been one heck of a week over here on the budgetsaresexy side, from having my 7 things learned over 7 years post picked up by Lifehacker, USAA, and then Business Insider (!!), all the way to realizing I won’t be able to retire for another 20 years at this rate, […]

As of today, I’ve been blogging for exactly 20% of my life. TWENTY PERCENT. That’s more than any years spent in early education, high school, college, at any job I’ve ever had before, any hobby I’ve ever enjoyed, pets I’ve kept around, and even longer than my marriage by a mere 3 months (fun fact*: I blogged while up on the altar!). It’s safe to […]

Happy Friday y’all! Hope you had a good week of multiplying that money – preferably as you slept ;) It’s been a wild ride over here this week to say the least, and to be honest I’m still pinching myself in disbelief. For those who haven’t seen it, an entire article was written about me over at Forbes (!!!) on how I grew my net […]

My New Year’s Resolution: LIVE MORE

January 2, 2015

You’d think as a personal finance blogger my goal this year would be money-related, but truth be told I feel like a schlub always putting money/blogging/entrepreneurship first. I tell people, and myself, that family and friends are priority #1, but my actions often say otherwise :( And it’s not something I want to see continuing, especially now that I’m blessed with two beautiful boys in […]

Happy New Years Eve y’all! Before you get sloshed out there and party into the wee hours, I thought I’d give you an opportunity to fill your brains one last time this year with some fiscal sex-savvy-ness (real word, look it up). And everyone knows it ain’t a party without a financial nerd in the house, so soak these up and then get out there […]

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 […]

I’m back! Did you miss me? Do you want some more of Matt Becker? Did you even know I was gone? I didn’t know where I was half the time myself over the weekend so no hard feelings either way :) But what I do know is that I’m back in action and sober now, and ready to get down to business… The business of […]
