It’s easy to become discouraged and even disgusted by your own financial story these days. Everywhere you look, a 20-something is making millions or a 30-something has enough money in investments to retire. And there you sit with heaping debt, not knowing how to fund your child’s college education, and a tiny retirement account.

Blogs walk a fine line between information and soul baring. I agreed to do a guest blog to contribute to Mrs. Mad Money Monster’s endeavors with this website, but did not look forward to the self reflection that comes along with it.
