Now that most of the dust (and beer) has settled, I want to share what it was like to attend my first-ever FinCon after less than a year pursuing FI, blogging, or even knowing anything about personal finance. I’m still trying to process everything because A LOT happened, but I can tell you without a shadow of doubt that it was everything I hoped it would be! I have to ...

Let me tell you something up front: I have yet to make a single penny off of anything besides my W2 income since I started this blogging journey.  I’m still very new at this, but my list of things I want to pay for (training courses, business services for the site, etc.) keeps growing while my online income isn’t. One of the things I’ve already gone ahead and pulled the ...

It does seem like a bit of a contradiction, doesn’t it?  I mean, if you’re going to be a purveyor of financial information, why not choose a name that inspires confidence in your monetary prowess?  Was it because all of the best combinations of “millennial” and “money” were already taken? In a word… yes.  (Thanks for nothing, Grant and Bobby!) In all seriousness, the entire process of brainstorming my name ...

I’ve already fallen off of the wagon, letting an entire month pass since my last post.  We’ll get into why shortly, but suffice it to say that June has been a particularly uncooperative month for both my finances and my productivity. Things started off well enough, we’d bounced back from our little hiccup in May and were excited for my son to visit us from North Carolina for a couple ...

I botched it this month. We actually did pretty well in April, ending the month with a $180+ surplus beyond what we’d accounted for (woohoo!). As a result, we went into May feeing pretty good about ourselves and excited to see if we could repeat our feat of unexpected frugality. But then life happened. I rearranged many of our normal bills to go through our new Alaska Airlines credit card ...

One of the things that Mrs. CD and I have struggled with off and on is our ability to consistently save money. We’ll set some goals and do ok for a while, but inevitably some slimy unexpected expense monster will crop up (often slithering up from the colossal money pit that is Mrs. CD’s car) and gobble up the money we’d been setting aside for savings, if not our entire ...

“I can’t.” Those two little words hold a huge amount of power. I know from experience, because those two words were the first ones out of my own mouth for most of my life. When I was growing up, I struggled a lot with self-confidence. I wouldn’t start doing anything unless I was convinced that I would succeed right out of the gate. Sports, classes, relationships, even things I considered ...
