Hey Friend!

Getting started on your path to financial freedom can be a long one by doing it alone. I created this blog in order to share my family’s experience, what we’ve failed at, and some insights so you can reach your destination much faster than us! If you haven’t already, please check out the about me page so you can get an idea of who we are and where we’ve come from!
