“Just like millions of Americans, I have experienced ups and downs with my personal finances. When I share knowledge and expertise about spending and saving money, it makes me feel good about helping someone who’s in the same situation that I’ve been in. Most of us don’t learn about personal finance in school – we often learn about it through trial and error. It’s my hope that somebody can figure out how to better handle their money after reading my work.”
