One of the beauties of running Rockstar Finance is that I get to see a ton of cool ways to talk about money that doesn’t sound like the same thing over and over again, even though it is ;) Unfortunately that also means I have to sift through hundreds of articles every day that DO actually sound the same (the point of Rockstar is to […]

What up money moguls! Got a new company to share with y’all today, and it’s giving my Digit a run for its money ;) It’s called Acorns, and it’s an app that rounds up your transactions to the nearest $1.00 and drops your spare change into investments. It’s all automatic, and it’s all awesome! (And yes, if this sounds familiar it’s quite similar to Bank […]

After being inspired by Jeremy’s early retirement story, I decided to sit down and calculate once and for all how long it would take for us to retire early as well. (And by retire early, I really mean “be financially independent” – ie not needing money anymore to survive whether you still want to work or not. In a way I feel like I’m already […]

Morning hustlers :) So one of my goals for this blog in 2015 is to try out a lot more financial products out there and then report back to y’all  if I find they’re kosher.
