8 Traits of the Wealthy

8 Traits of the Wealthy

My recent posts have been packed with investing terminology and the fundamentals of how to build wealth through investing (mainly through stock index funds). I want to shift away from the technical posts for a week and change it up a little bit. Throughout the past two years, I’ve worked hard to acquire knowledge about money- how it works, how it grows, and most importantly, how it affects the lives of people. As much as we may not want to…

Roth IRA vs. Traditional IRA

Roth IRA vs. Traditional IRA

This posting comes because of a direct request from one of my readers who is also a longtime friend of mine. He reached out personally and asked if I could go into detail about the Roth IRA. I was SO HAPPY when he asked about this because I feel that the Roth IRA is one of the best tools for the average American citizen, especially millennials, to use to aid in achieving financial freedom for themselves and their family. Not…

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…

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…
