My Financial “Why’s?”

My Financial “Why’s?”

I have often been called “Grandpa.” I even had this nickname back in my college years. No, it’s not because I look old…although I do have 3 random small white patches of hair on my head! Not to toot my own horn but I am actually in really good shape, haven’t smoked a thing in my life, rarely drink anymore, and I monitor my diet to a certain degree. What I am trying to get at is that physically, I…

Don’t Laugh at Marcus Williams…You Have Been Making the Same Mistake for Years

Don’t Laugh at Marcus Williams…You Have Been Making the Same Mistake for Years

That walk-off touchdown from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs was probably the greatest/craziest play I have EVER seen in an NFL game. The Vikings had the ball at their 39-yard line and had 10 seconds (no timeouts) to either score a touchdown or get into field goal range. The field goal scenario was highly unlikely because the Vikings had to advance the football at least 25 yards AND get out of bounds. That left the Vikings with 1 plausible option-…

How Much Are You Really Worth?

How Much Are You Really Worth?

When I started my journey to financial freedom, one of the first steps I had to take was to determine my actual financial worth. There is a BIG difference between the money you make (salary) and the money that is sitting in your bank account, compared to your actual financial value. Have you ever read or heard about Forbes list of the wealthiest individuals in the world? This list includes individuals like Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Bill Gates (Microsoft),…

Millennial Wake-Up Call

Millennial Wake-Up Call

The Seed was Planted THE TIME HAS COME! Do you know how excited I am to finally get to talk to you about the passion that makes my brain tick? This seed was planted in me about 2 years ago, and it continues to grow and blossom to this day. It originally started when I logged into my 401(k) account for the first time at my previous employer. There wasn’t much money in there, but what did catch my eye…

Don’t sit on the Bench in 2018

Don’t sit on the Bench in 2018

Insert Yourself into the Lineup One of the favorite jobs I ever had was working Front-Desk at Gold’s Gym. I grew up playing soccer and basketball, and during my freshman year of college I became fascinated with weight lifting. Now that I was in college full time and no longer playing competitively, the gym became my outlet to keep in shape. I didn’t hold a regular job during my first 2 years in college, but that changed in my junior…

New Year’s Eve Mistake that Could Cost You $263,000!

New Year’s Eve Mistake that Could Cost You $263,000!

Don’t be DUMB… I will be the first to admit it. I have 100% got behind the wheel of a car when I shouldn’t have. Guilty as charged. No, I have never been caught by the police. That doesn’t mean that I didn’t make one of the DUMBEST mistakes one could make. It just means I didn’t have to answer to anybody about it. Looking back at my younger and dumber days, some of the decisions I made still make…

2018 Holidays Savings Challenge!

2018 Holidays Savings Challenge!

Holidays Are Getting Expensive… I don’t know about you, but does the holiday season get more expensive each year? Our families seem to grow and expand and before we even realize it, half of our loved ones don’t even live in the same state anymore. Personally, my sisters seem to bless me with a new niece every single year (5 total now!) which makes the holiday seasons even more special! Although the blessings that growing families provide (let’s be HONEST),…

Frugal Money Man Who???

Frugal Money Man Who???

I am the Frugal Money Man. I know, the one word that NOBODY likes to hear, and I am going to say it again…FRUGAL! I wasn’t always frugal, as a matter of fact I didn’t really know what the word meant for the majority of my life. I was never rich growing up (nor was I poor) and I was born in to a middle class family. Neither of my parents have a college degree, but they were both very…
